This is really on the nerdy end of trading/draft stuff.
I get pretty frustrated with the AFL's points index as it doesn't reflect how clubs value picks. This is because the AFL based on it salary, which doesn't line up with the pick-for-pick trading market. It's basically garbage, and yet the...
I think there was one of these years ago, I had a search and couldn't find it.
Just some loose guidelines if you lose your bearings this trade period.
Player coming to your club
Player leaving your club
Prior to a trade
Reaction to the news or rumour of a trade request
A thread to discuss pick trades before and during the draft.
I imagine on every team board there are posters throwing up unrealistic pick trades.
I'd be interested to hear:
- any comments your club has made
- your club's limitations (e.g. can't trade future first)
- your f/s or academy...
What is your club’s best 22 for 2021?

Is there not a thread already? Apologies if I missed it (RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME).
My initial instinct is that the Pies may have had the worst trade period of all time. Or at least it seems that way right now. Just mind-blowing.
From an Eagles' perspective, I was really happy to get an extra...
Sydney has interest in Hickey apparently. He doesn’t really warrant a thread on his own so thought I’d ask here.
What is Hickey worth? Sydney has pick 56 (crows 4th rounder). Is that about right if we are willing to trade him?
Who will be our wings in 2020?
This seems to be the biggest query in our line-up heading into 2020.
It’s likely that Gaff spends a lot of time there given the amount of inside mids we have, other candidates for the role don't seem obvious (to me at least).
If we assume that we have the...
Interested to see them after the trade period.
Here is my take on West Coast.

A bit of discussion about how the priority pick could penalise clubs who trade in future picks etc.
The solution is clear.
Give Gold Coast a 2020 priority pick that they have to trade for 2019 pick(s) and/or player(s).
I got a bit of info from this article http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-12-08/wheres-your-club-at to put together a preliminary injury list.
Training watchers may have info to be added in.
The timelines are just my guesses based on the article.
Edited for feedback and the Eagles' site...
The AFL has just ruled that Clarke and Mumford can sign: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-11-15/new-rookie-rules-clarke-mumford-free-to-join-club-of-choice
Teams can have 43 on their main and cat A list, leaving them with the opportunity of signing a rookie from Dec 1 onwards.
So clubs can...
12 days from the draft and draft machine isn’t up.
AFL have really ****ed up here. It’s bare minimum sort of stuff to have this finished in October.
Twomey said it would be up this week, so hopefully that is today.
The link to the site for when it does go live...
Im on my phone so having trouble just pasting the picks and order. If someone else can be bothered that would be great.
I’ve never posted on this board, apologies if there already is a thread.
I’m a long time Oregon Ducks and college basketball fan.
Saw Bol Bol (son of basketball card legend Manute Bol) carving up in a preseason game for the ducks. Looks bloody exciting.
Also read that Duke have the best...
I've been clogging up other threads with this topic. Which can be annoying so I thought I'd start a thread.
The AFL aimed to allocate points to picks, that accurately reflect their actual value:
"We have found that the DVI is a good indicator of the general value of picks relative to one...
Fixture just came out. It barely matters, but it's good we don't have to leave the state.
