    Best Small Forward in the League?

    Who's the best small/medium at the moment? Usually there's an obvious one like Eddie Betts, but it's not like that at the moment. Players that come to my mind are Toby Greene, Jordan DeGoey and Orazio Fantasia. Thoughts?

    Expansion Non-Expansion Teams with Academies?

    So, in the next draft, North Melbourne get access to a player in Tarryn Thomas that I am sure a lot of recruiters would love to have access to. But for some reason North Melbourne get access to him as though he were a father/son or academy pick purely because he's from Hobart. Why does a...

    How good was that? Remove the draw in H&A

    My god, what a finish. A famous moment, all because the draw was not a thing. I reckon they should remove the draw in home and away and bring in extended time like that. Incredible game, great for footy.

    Poll: Who's Making the 8? - Round 21 Edition

    The race for finals in 2017 has become a tight one, perhaps the tightest since 1993. Figured I'd make a thread with a poll so that we could look at what every one things visually, and discuss who we think will be in the final 8 at the end of the season and in what order. Here are the details...

    Biggest draft steal in the last 5 drafts?

    Hey all, I was thinking about how much of an absolute gun Luke Parker has been for Sydney. He was taken at pick 40 in 2010, I remember Essendon fans being pissed as we picked Ariel Steinberg before him, who's now been delisted, when midfield was a real concern. Who is the biggest draft steal...

    Top 3 Players in the 2016 AFL draft - Call it now!

    So, the number 1 draft pick has never(?) been the best player in a draft pool, however there's usually 2-3 players better, if not more. Usually two inside first round, and one absolute ripper much later. Note: The below table is just an example, no need to take it off topic and turn it into a...

    Autopsy Only the 22 that Played, Getting a Medal - Time For a Change

    Hey guys, I have been saying for years that every player that played a game throughout the year for the club should get a metal, as they've all contributed. The moment between Beveridge and Murphy was special, but shouldn't need to have happened. Imagine going all the way through your career...

    Brisbane or Hawthorn, the Better Three-peat?

    Now that the four-peat is dead, who do you think was the better three-peat and why? Brisbane 2001, '02 and '03 or Hawthorn 2013, '14 and '15. I think Brisbane, they defeated an Essendon side in 2001 that looked unbeatable. "If it bleeds you can kill it". Hawthorn's 3peat was during a time that...
