    Drafting and Playing Lists

    A moment of reflection

    First up, I have to admit, I'm more excited about tonight's result than I have been since,... maybe beating West Coast in Perth in 2001 on our way to 16 straight. Certainly we've only won two games so far, and aren't a patch on that side. But there are some things I think we can take out of...

    Went looking for an iCal format of 2007 season fixture and struggled so ended up writing my own. Not sure if anyone else uses iCal here, but here's the URL if you do -- saves entering it by hand. I've got it all syncing to my phone's calendar now...

    Cheynee Stiller's 2006 Rating

    Just a bit of a wrap up for a guy who snuck off the rookie list and under everyone's guard. In the midst of an incredibly tedious debate over whether Joel Selwood would be better than Marc Murphy, a table was put together comparing Murphy's debut 11 games to a list of previous debutants like...

    Mal's manager was contacted this morning on SEN and failed to rule out him nominating. Word is that Essendon have come to him with a two year deal that he's keen on. Bowers spoke to KB later and said yes, they had heard this, and were not happy. They had contacted Vlad and Adrian to point out...

    Bunnings Selwood

    Not a great deal said about him, but it was a pretty handy game. Swapping off the bench but finished with 8 disposals, a mark and 6 tackles. The little chop out he did to set up Pike as he cannoned into Fisher was a gem for a first gamer. Moves around like he's played 50 games. Shades of...

    Pat Garner

    Did anyone watch much of Paddy last season? That was the 'Shattock pick' and they passed over a bigger, quicker guy in Moran for him, yet I didn't really hear much about him during the AFLQ season. Can anyone walk me through the thinking here?
