    its called hedging your bets after being gifted two top 5 midfielders.

    Really happy with what I've seen from him from that highlights package. Good awareness, quick and excellent ball use. Hopefully he will have a long and successful career wearing red and white.

    Don't know much of Constable but didn't he have shocking combine data? That could literally be the difference of about 20 spots in the draft.

    His testing wasn't great that's for sure. Still feel he is a steal at where he went. He is one positioned but he's very good at it.

    Happy with our draft though.

    To clarify, because people are bound to bring it up... yes, he is from the Geelong Falcons, but no, he isn't related to Cameron Ling.

    Highlights are promising.

    Nice tackle in there. And that burst past the the defender in the forward pocket shows he has pace and knows it. Likes a mark too.

    Any relation to Cameron Ling? Can't find anything.

    Edit no. But living in Geelong with that surname something tells me there's a ranga on the family tree somewhere. :oops:

    Welcome Matthew! Good luck.

    Turn it up yourself actually, your relentless negative pursuit of this poster is actually quite boring. At least he is trying to add a voice to the board which is what this forum is supposed to be about, if you don't like what he has to say just put him on ignore rather than filling the thread with your petty pot shots.

    That’s all this bloke does is pot people. Contributes nothing but negativity and big noting.

    Took me by surprise during the draft, but liking this selection now. Hearing Kinnear's words definitely instills me with confidence

    Quick, penetrating kick HBF, should help us with defensive transition, which i think is our most noticeable weakness.

    Loves a bounce, which is unique for our team as even our playmakers arent big linebreakers. I.e. mills and lloyd

    Then there's the typical kinnear/swans attitude analysis - A real team player according to Kin

    Agreed time to let him develop now. He could be a fantastic weapon for our side.

    To be fair this year was an obvious top6 and then take a chook raffle from 7-30 really.

    It's why phantom drafts in even years are laughable. It's why I do a "rankings" rather than a phantom draft anyway!

    How they got our needs so wrong was weird though! We were never going to draft Oscar Allen!

    speed to burn, attacking, left foot, reads the play. Great foundation to instill some swans mentality.

    The biggest joke are champion data and David King , everything is stats.

    I thought it was an obvious top5 but Stephenson at 6 with doubt on his health etc? Not many had him going that high.

    Cannot wait to see our boys in action.

    Stephenson was easily the 6th best player on talent.

    You take the most talented kid for mine. Has the potential to be the best mid in the draft. I had LDU at 1, but had Stephenson up there.

    Twomey came close this year! If he had any more guesses he'd need a whole newspaper!
