    F**k I hate GWS. On AFL.com...

    They've found another one. Tim Taranto, the No.2 pick in last year's national draft averaged 17 possessions in the three JLT games and appears to have played his way into a round one debut against Adelaide. His ability to run out games shows he is ready to play at the level.

    Who would have guessed the #2 pick in the draft would be any good? GWS have genius recruiters! What other club would have been able to pick a decent player with pick 2?

    Drafting at GWS is a peristaltic process. A fresh player goes in one end, and an old one is pushed out the other.

    23, 21, it doesn't matter. It's a moving procession over there.

    To be fair they make old GU look like a speedster there. Freo will probably pick tim English or sps at number 2. And sps will probably end up like Mora, apeness.

    They also classify their players according to: "early first rounder", "late first rounder" or "not on their list"

    It's amusing the way their fans always bring up Rory Lobb to try prove they aren't a team of high draft picks.

    The guy was a second rounder and they talk about him like he was taken #174 in the rookie draft.

    Has anybody else got that tingly feeling on their neck that Luke Hodge was hungover from the birthday party the night before and didn't roll out of bed in time to get to training?

    Pretty interesting article.

    "I think there's a little bit more flexibility in the game plan here," he said. "I just feel like the attacking side of the game here is really encouraged, and I reckon 'Rocket' has got that 100 per cent right, when you look at the list and see who we've got at our disposal, we've got some of the best athletes and natural players in the competition, so you want to harness that." - Not sure if Mick is suggesting attacking play is discouraged at Freo or not?

    If you remove the comma between "100 per cent right" and "when you look at the list and see who we've got at our disposal", your confusion may be lessened.

    Applying your basic skills in lit crit, you will then see that the phrase invites comparison between Gold Coast's list and Freo's list, and the imperatives that implies in the game plan department, as last year well showed.

    Wow. Quite surprised, thought Plugger hated the limelight & would probably end his days an overweight dog trainer.
    He looks amazing, wonder how well he will work out as a coach.
