Hope Fischer and Josh are actually friends and not just team mates that put up with each other
Teammates right through the junior ranks first at their local club the East Brighton Vampires, then the NAB League/Sandringham Dragons and then Vic Metro.

absolutely.
so its 50-50

no guarantees
Planning around the possibility that a player could move in 5 years time, based on where they came from, just opens you up to settling for a lesser option.
If McAsey and Worrell were the 2 best key position players available to us in the draft, and they also fill a role that we have a vacancy at, then we pick them. Picking someone else, because we've lost players from there before is silly.

Everyone always assumes that players who played in the same team are friends.
Generally if they play in the same junior, rep and state teams etc they will be friends, at least to an extent.

Just because when they go out to the carnival etc they'll know their club teammates the best.

I liked most of my team mates and would have called them my friends, but there were very few who influence me to hang around at a club.

They're also quite young and susceptible to change in people they like to hang around with.

I don't buy the whole friends help with retention thing. It may help in the early stages of home sickness.

I agree its more likely to help in the early stages when knowing people and fitting in are concerns.
Having an 'in', like a guy you've known for years, makes life so much easier even if they arent close.

But in saying that the early stages set the scene. Its very easy to make your mind up that you dont like something early on.

San Francisco Giants,
I like the look of this fella..... seems pretty athletic and well balanced for a tall. Bonus he's a lefty!
