It's a damn shame. If only there was such a thing as averages! :p ;)
Haha of course, but would love to compare these guys over a full season. Would definitely make Brownlow night intriguing if they all played every game from here on out. Kelly coming from behind.

That makes for an interesting discussion.

2001 left us with at least 13 genuine stars of the comp. Going to be hard to top, but 2013 may yet give it a nudge.
Most of these guys are still only 23 years of age with plenty of time to develop further. Could yet happen.

EDIT: A couple of more than just handy rookies in 2001 to boot.

Slide billings in between Lobb and Salem and that’s about right

Crazy draft.
I'd make a couple of changes:

Barrass Pearce Sicily
Salem Aliir DBJones

Nankervis Cripps Sheed
Merrett Kelly Crouch

Billings Lobb Fantasia
Bontempelli Brown Cameron

Jones Harmes Hewett Langdon

Think including Jetta is a bit disingenuous and Impey's pretty ****. Hard to believe you skipped over the likes of Zak Jones and Langdon for Impey. It's probably a better balanced draft than that of 2001 all in all.

Harsh on Impey. but fair points. Huge draft.

Nah, he sucks. Would also have the likes of Taylor, Kolodjashnij, McCarthy, Dunstan, Dumont and Knight ahead.
You either need to watch him more or you are a terrible judge of players because he has improved leaps and bounds since coming over. He isn't an AA player or anything but he definitely does not suck. He is streets ahead of all the players you just mentioned.

Or I'm right and you need to take the brown and gold glasses off. Doesn't find the ball, average defender and can't kick. Has a crack but that's about it. Also lol at being streets ahead of Jake Kolodjashnij.

I would take Impey over Taylor, Knight, McCarthy but agree Kolodjashnij is miles ahead and Dunstan + Dumont are better

Fair enough I will concede on Jake, but he is averaging 16 touches a game as a small defender/small forward. That is more than enough for his role. Takes the game on, competes well in the air for his size, can play multiple roles and is an average but not terrible.

Saying he is **** is just straight up wrong.

Another very good performance from Impey on the weekend, team of the week this week.

Not bad for a player that sucks.
