    I did say he was overrated ;)

    He probably went around where he was expected to go by many - late ND to early rookie. This is the common draft range for small forwards. I very much rate him above the groupthink though, and reckon the Tigers have got a steal.

    Most were saying main draft 3rd round, nor rookie .......175cm players still shied away from in the main

    I also thought this ......Bulldogs at #28 was a bit of a stretch, maybe knew of our interest ?

    Don't remember too many people saying he'd be picked up in the 40-50 range (3rd round)?

    I reckon he would have been ours if he got to 43. Like him as a prospect, but he definitely went earlier than expected. I'm not complaining though, I rate Poholke higher.

    Think we all like the tougher players ......although having watched a bit of Poholke now, he doesn't use that frame in a game as he needs to ?

    So that proves my judgement then ......Lebois is a lot better than Stengle ;):p:p

    Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't. Needs to develop that complete confidence to put his muscular build to good use all the time.
    So 'a lot' is equal to one pick now? What am I missing :p

    One pick is enough to make that statement :p

    Hey if i said English wouldn't be taken in the first round ....and Bulldogs take him with pick 19, how much difference does that 1 pick make to my credibility :p

    Looks like da Big Fella's already trimmed down and my boy Darcy Tucker taking him under his wing will help because if there ever was a guy with elite preparation it's Darcy..

    That has to be a record contract extension for a new draftee..

    Both Sellar and Tippett were initially locked in for 3 years and I think we did it with a few other players around that time as well.
