Yes we are ....but to our credit, we've got the timing right .....GEEL are leaving their's too late IMO

Bring the youth in, whilst you still have a good core ....and you have an aging spine.....kids will develop quicker, history has shown this

I wouldn't be surprised to play finals ....who did we lose that was a critical piece ....maybe Keath ...but not Dougie, Greenwood, CEY, Jenkins
Probably the worng thread, but you think we could play finals next year?
Other than Keath possibly Betts, we havent lost much.
New coach, no burton or campo, enthusiasm etc, wouldnt surprise me.

Hey guys, I do come in peace.

I was able to watch a fair few Nab league games which featured a few CC games. I must admit I am quite shocked he was drafted. I thought rookie list at best perhaps or maybe another year in the NAB league as an overage player.

I did see that maybe he was spotted during school footy games and that's where the interest might have popped up. He's very skinny, but definitely has some tools that in a full time AFL environment could turn him into a tall wingman/running HB. Extremely raw and will need a good 12 to 18 months of good development which is why these are the picks that can turn into gold if he develops well and plays good regular senior footy in the future.

At this pick I had you guys looking at maybe Cam Tahney, Josh Honey or even a Jake Riccardi.

All the best for next year.
Josh Honey ewwww, he's a dead set ball burner.

Josh Honey ewwww, he's a dead set ball burner.
The 2 games I watched him play his ball use fine.

184cm midfielder forward who's breakaway speed from stoppage was on show and has a good long penetrating kick.
In one game I watched him against the devils he had 26 disposals and kicked 2 goals.

I thought he would have suited Adelaide at this pick.

Either way, I think you have to be really patient with Gollant.

you know i respect your opinions more than most on here, but respectfully disagree with you here.

are we even in rebuild phase? our top 12 players are absolutely elite. wouldn't surprise me if we played finals next season.

We have twelve players that are "absolutely elite"? I'm not sure we even have one player that is absolutely elite.

Looks like Reilly O'Brien might have some competition on the "intelligence" front, according to Lachlan's Calder Cannons Coach he's a 98 - 99 ATAR type of student, I'm not too sure about his prowess on the footy field just yet but it sounds like he's one smart cookie.

Is F1 and F2 busy today?

Did you hear the SEN interview with Hamish when asked if we let Stephens slip through our fingers and responded “No, we always expected to take McAsey with our first pick“.

So.....

1) Two weeks ago almost all the experts expected that we would take Flanders with Pick 4.

2) Over the last two weeks McAsey’s name was increasingly linked with Adelaide.

3) We then moved from Pick 4 to Pick 6 when it was agreed by the “draft experts“ that Sydney would be taking a midfielder (like errr Stephens) and Melbourne would be picking up Jackson.

4) As the Draft approached the “experts” were all in agreement that Freo would be taking Young and Serong.

5) The “experts” were also predicting that Carlton would be taking Stephens with Pick 9.

6) On the morning of day one of the draft the rumours emerged that Adelaide and Carlton were discussing a swap of picks 6 and 9.

7) Once Stephens was taken by Sydney the pick swap died.

The obvious conclusion in Faithworld is that Adelaide were desperate to take Stephens?????
We also wanted to take Gould before Shoenberg, Rantall before Worrell and Taheny before Gollent.

You made a dick of yourself by declaring endlessly that we wouldn’t use pick 6 on McAsey. Drop your pants, do a quick lap of the pool table and then STFU.

Be careful, he has a new bestie, Wayne will be on to you.

You should ask Faith while you are at it, that despite insisting Geelong were desperate to trade up to get Flanders when he was considered a top 5 pick, why they did fu** all when he was available at 11.

i have no doubt Hamish was clueless like everyone til 48 hours out.

look at his interview the day before the draft on afl site, he said Swans pick is really unknown which way they go.

As i said, its done now. We move on.
If it was unknown then that means we'd of considered there'd be a chance they'd take Stephens, so we'd of considered that option and been fine with not picking him.

Anyone that wants to get a good look at what we've got in Lachlan this is one of his better games, named 3rd best for the Cannons....#43 white jerseys, plays on the wing. Game starts at the 35 minute mark so the fast forward button is required.

Hey, can you link to the best games to watch McAsey and/or Worrell?

Probably the best games to watch are the U18's Championship games where it's best on best of this year's draftees and they can be found on the AFL website but you would want to get in quick because I'm not sure how long they'll leave them up.

I’ve never said GWS didn’t show interest, but to state categorically a player will he picked up at a certain pick just doesn’t happen.
there could have been a player they rated 20 spots higher at that pick. At best they could tell a player that they’re looking to take them with a certain pick but that would be conditional on their talent order largely being extinguished as expected. But if a higher rated player is still available at that pick then that’s the kid they go with.

Exactly. I can’t believe I even had to argue it, as it turns out Hamish picked him based on him improving his draft ranking in 2020. Still waiting for BACCS to acknowledge he erred carrying on

All evidence suggests that we did - given that we willingly traded down from 4 to 6. Hamish would have had a very good idea who Sydney wanted, so he would have known that Stephens was unlikely to be available at #6 - and yet he did the trade anyway.

All evidence suggests that Hamish rated McAsey ahead of Stephens.

You have no evidence other than your personal opinions, which is not evidence.
Hamish may have rated Stephens higher than McAsey, just not higher enough to knock back a late 1st rounder.
