    He wasn't picked up by anyone unfortunately.

    Cheers mate, must have fizzled as he was rated pretty highly a few years ago.

    Perhaps the swap picks move with Eagles to obtain Blakey shouldn’t have been as much a surprise as it was.

    Swans are probably more familiar than anyone on using points to accrue our academy players. It stands to reason we’d see the potential of thinking outside the box.

    Indeed was touted as the better Dunkley.

    I don’t think the trading itself was a surprise, however the ability to split the trade into two halves to “cheat” (completely legal) the bidding system caught almost everyone by surprise.

    I wonder if that will be reviewed!

    They are as viable as Taints, Carlcrims, #lolcameNinf.

    I liked how the non Vic teams cooperated to some extent. I hope this develops over the years ahead. I really like the idea of reversing the pillaging of GoCo and Giants applying pressure on Melbourne clubs, esp those without much future. Let's always bid on their f/s and faux Academy nominees. Let's drop money and encourage defections of talented players.

    I don’t think it should. It was a very clever use of the rules and if others weren’t smart to pick up on it, tough titties!

    Yes, that’s what I meant.
    It’s funny skimming through other boards reading comments.
    Pretty much mirrors Fox footy team team reaction.
    1: for gods sake will someone pick Blakey and make them pay!!
    2: ???
    3: Then..WTF!! Sydney you dodgy bastards!!
    4: well done you dodgy bastards why didn’t we think of that

    Obviously we wouldn't rely on a rookie kpd, but to have one v Maibaum batyling to inherit Reg's spot would be ideal. Just thought we lack a guy to handle the monster kpf ongoing.

    Oh absolutely. I’d love them to leave it but it wouldn’t surprise me if they changed it.

    My view is someone was going to do it, and the AFL might review it thereafter, so why not be us. I am glad that the club were bold and get the first, perhaps even the only crack at it.

    Forever we will be the first team in history (along with West Coast) to do a live trade and we did it by exploiting the AFLs lack of foresight. Hilarious!

    Hawks board worst than Norf on our picks swaps. Hilarious.

    Obviously didn’t get a draft free kick?

    There can be only one...
    They lost a lot of good players though, hard to say if it will be a win in the long-term. I think probability dictates the more you recycle the more you are likely to lose ground with the ones that bust, but they had a pretty decent deck of talent to start with, can probably afford to lose some ground.

    Maibaum is on our list at least. We have enough defenders needed mids. Got them

    Perhaps they forgot about getting Scully for pick 40 odd?

    St Scum board also utterly lost it. One poster called us and Im quoting here...’the white collar criminals of the AFL’ (insert moral outrage here)

    I would love to know the honest thoughts of rankine and luekocious over being drafted to gc.

    I expect that the suns will go straight away and try extend their contracts while the euphoria of being drafted is still present

    Well maybe if they were more white collar, they’d employ more blue collar and they’d have more than one flag? As I tell all suffering Saints supporters...suck shit, you chose them!
