Just looking at the AFL website we have 1 pick 1st round and 2 picks 2nd round. After that I can not see a pick in the top 90. Can we even think of giving any away?

If we trade a player like Hugh Greenwood and/or Rory Atkins my big hope would be we would secure at least enough collateral in the deal to nab either SA intercepting KPD Karl Finlay and/or exciting 188cm x factor SA youngster who can play either back or forward, perhaps even midfield after a couple of years in the weights room.

Listened to Kelly being discussed the other day. On radio maybe. They mentioned that last year he became unsettled and told the club he was open to the idea of a move home if a suitable deal could orchestrated. Not sure if Collingwood were mentioned as the preferred option or the only option?

They went on to say that he's settled down and a lot happier this year.
He had a bit in the paper a month or so ago saying how he wasn't enjoying playing football. He's taken a bit of a step back and allowed some outside hobbies into his life and doesn't allow it to consistently be the only thing he focuses on and seems to be enjoying himself more now.

It would need to be an exciting trade because it would be sad to see Greenwood go, especially given everything Ogilvie put into that story.
Who do we think owes who in this exercise?

Hugh to the club for prolonged interest in him and giving opportunity for an AFL career and the needed development?

The club to Hugh for choosing us to sign up with as a talented (albeit delayed) "junior"?

A bit from column A and a bit from column B?

We need to get a few more pick in the teens and 20s. Definitely need Finlay, maybe Day and Taheny.
Would be nice to get Pickett just to piss port of as well

Great chart. I don't put much into the points but it is scary looking at GC's picks. 2 first rounds picks and a 49 then nothing. We are so ahead of them. They may yet get a PP is the AFL see this.
Who knows? Maybe another 3 picks from the state leagues again. Only problem is between the 5 picks taken by them and Carlton last year, and the mid season draft this year the well is probably drying up.

Maybe the AFL can manufacture some sort of option to give them a free hit at all the free agents coming out of contract? Or something along the lines of the picks they and GWS were given for contracted players when they started up?

Another PP at the start of the draft seems pointless. Particularly considering they've had 10 top 10 draft picks in the last 4 years. And probably have pick 1 this year + another 1st round pick.

Rankine staying with the Suns. Signed a two year extension.
So much for those that were continually going on with how unhappy he would be up there when all the signs from the lad himself were he was loving it up there.


“It felt pretty good after 16 and a half weeks of rehab … I got handed a goal but ended up slotting it and everyone got around me and it felt good,” Rankine said after the game.

I'd absolutely be prepared to give Andy Otten another 12 month contract too, showing invaluable leadership and mentoring to the young guys coming through the SANFL system, a big strong body to protect the kids and he's certainly still an AFL break glass swingman option.

Yep, what is the problem with giving him a 200k contract and telling him to do all the coaching courses he can whilst being an option if sit comes down? I mean, where else is he making 200k next year and as a mentor...just invaluable
