Any danger the AFL puts something on social media about this? I’ve been looking forward to the inevitable whinging from the filth.

When we went to the 2009 draft with picks 1,2,11 & 18 who would have thought we would get our superstar player at pick 34?

The only pick Prendergast and Harrington have to hang their hat on. What a complete shambles for the club other than Gawn that draft turned out to be.

So pleased that Max got the recognition due for his year with the starting ruck position.

Also pleased I get to remind my Pie-supporting work colleagues that they have a second rate ruckman.

To be fair to them, it's a hardly their fault that our number 1 pick packed up and left (given he's been a pretty good player at GWS when fit), and that our club doctors ****** up the number 2 pick's foot.

But yeah aint nice reading...

I watched the under 18 carnival closely that year, and Martin was the best player by a mile to my eyes, i honestly didn't have a clue how Scully and Trengove were ranked of him. (probably only because of character concerns at the time, which has turned out to be nothing at the end of the day)

Just imagine what damage Jason Taylor could have done with those quality of picks :eek:

Yes it is, Martin was clearly the better footballer than both but we chose the safe option.

The Gysberts and Tapscott picks were even worse, so much quality in that draft.
