What were your thoughts on Jordan Ridley's season? Berry was a real improver too don't you think?
I hardly noticed him until I read here how highly rated he is... Every team has a back pocket type they think is under rated and the ball was there a lot.

Yes pretty much all the Lions youth players looks disturbingly good

Definitely not a back pocket but appreciate your thoughts nonetheless. Any other players from this draft you like the look of?

Between you and me I have a soft spot for jack Graham and am pretty stoked he signed long term.

Important week or two for him I hope he can step up against a great set of port mids (boak wines Rocky etc) in his native south Australia

Great insight as I expected. Any Non-Richmond players take your fancy?

Like berry, the way zurhaar goes about it seems fairly good. I'd find a spot for him too I think.

I like kayle Kirby and stengle. I hope they are doing well.

Rioli I'd take too... all the rioli to tigerland IMHO

Narkle I'm not sure about and slightly worried by the richmond links.

Marshall seems ok.

Looks a good draft and I have a number of thoughts about it. Thank you for asking.

Your knowledge of players outside Richmond is non-existent. Kayle Kirby hasn't been on an AFL list for 2 seasons.

Please never compare a Richmond player to a Non-Richmond player again

Dont put words in my mouth. I did not try to counteract one argument with that. I stated he had 3 clangers to go with his 54% disposal efficiency.
3 clangers is nothing. Disposal efficiency is a nuffie stat, please never refer to it again. He was clearly one of the best on the ground.
Let's be clear, clangers are not turnovers.

Clangers are frees against, OOTF, fumbles, and other unforced errors. Yes, you want a player to avoid doing those things too, but they're not necessarily disposal errors.

Separate statistics are readily available on turnovers, effective kicks, and kicking efficiency, through FootyWire and AFL Stats Pro.

On that note let's hope spp and toddy regress somewhat in the short term.
Marshall is ridiculously overrated, and really behind schedule if he's ever going to be any sort of star.

Still very physically underdeveloped (both in strength and endurance) given he's has 4 years in the AFL system, and can't take a contested mark to save himself.

Similar to Eric Hipwood, what's the point of being a 6'6"+ forward, if you play like a 6'2" flanker?

Got to admit Marcel, you're very good at this game...

I know the kid was delisted or retired. Just pointing out he's a talented excited guy and I like his style. Ditto stengle.

I hope this didn't cause you offence

Port fans have been fairly savage in their toddy Marshal review

Great to see Shai Bolton get another 2 coaches votes in the final v port

Shai and Clug leading all players from 2016 draft with 6 votes in the Leigh Matthews medal.

Amazing that Shai has been in the best players ( according to coaches ) in 2 of his 3 finals .

No surprise I am sure that he remains in my mind conservatively a clear top 5 pick in his draft yr.

Has a chance to be dual premiership player at 21 yrs old

Big game player.

That’s a fair swing and a miss.

Most brownlow votes too from his draft class? Not bad for not consistent bolts
