    Ryan Burton sees himself as a Midfielder.
    Stated he wanted to play in that position in the future.

    He played well on Tex when he got Brownlow votes

    The guy can play anywhere that's just an opportunity missed and a south Australian one at that

    They aren't going to trade in Francis and leave a 2 year contracted Doedee in the reserves. Nor will they trade out Doedee.

    Want a bet?

    The only thing with getting Francis, is that only two of him, Doedee and Kelly can really fit into the side (unless Francis plays forward, which I doubt).

    Who misses out long-term?

    That's maybe why we don't go for Francis.

    Facts are Doedee and Francis are after the same position third man up intercept what I have seen of Francis his leg is very very good but not super quick the opposite could be said of Doedee poor disposal but plenty quick

    Francis in football ability is very very good but needs to train harder Doedee is a beast on the track but lacks football pedigree

    Two quite different players apart from the same position hahaha

    So you're willing to bet we are getting Francis and trading Doedee?

    They wouldn't take Doedee for Francis crows supporters might be a little optimistic of Doedees talents but neutrals know where he sits

    So what are we doing then?

    Trading in Francis?
    Trading out Doedee?
    Playing Doedee in the reserves for 2 years?

    We should trade for Francis

    I will back Francis to get a gig before Doedee has tons more football ability

    Doedee can be depth

    I see Francis as Ottens heir. Very versatile forward and back. Very good verticle so might even push for Jenkins spot if he delivers on talent.

    Doedee has shown a hell of a lot more than Francis, without even playing a game. Francis has talent but I'd rather have Doedee at half back.

    Come on you've seen Francis and how he moves he is a footballer Doedee trains and try's hard but is a basketballer playing footy

    Since Dangerfield, Massie, Davis, Fitzgerald, Tambling, Angwin, Meesen. Have we ever had any others? 7 in 27 years; 3 traded in and 4 traded out.

    GwS probably still have more right now. Carlton (lws?) too.

    Wasn’t Francis talked about as a tall midfield option also?

    Talked about...

    Fact is he has never had the tank in the past.....and thus far in his career he has done little to dispel that doubt.

    The player Adrian Dodoro compared him too the night the Dons drafted him was Jake Stringer another that was supposed to be going to transition into a big assed midfielder when drafted.........5 years into Stringer's AFL career we're still waiting......

    All only want Francis because of where he was picked up in the draft. He seems like he could turn out to be a real dud. Definitely worth the risk though for a second rounder
