I'm happy with Mead but the Burgoyne selection is like the crows picking the Jarman kid. The old Port would not give a list spot to a name, the old Port would selecte best available.
If you dont select a Burgoyne(s) and later a Wanganeen, even as a Rookie... You are not Port Adelaide!

It was a NO contest!

Felt like a classic Choco draft, was not the drafting of a team that wants to finish 10th.
I know I'm just a white noise fossil but having a Mead and probably a Burgoyne back at the club makes me happy.

Look forward to seeing the kids play next year.
Classic Choco draft :oops:
Still love the man but his interventions to push for Motlop and Westhoff jnr haunt me. And given his influence presume he had a significant part in those diabolical draft years in the mid 2000s.

By my (poor) recollection a Choco draft was one where we took a risk on players that slid due to injuries.

But everyone would perceive a Choco draft differently :thumbsu:

Question about Borlase and next years draft, can he choose to not nominate as a Crows academy player and therefore be taken as a father son? He is a very good key defender who looks ready to play even this year.

He can choose to not nominate for NGA and go into the open draft. He is not eligible for Father Son.

Also Taj Schofield looks like he will be an elite player with Sam Mitchell skills and Robbie Gray elusiveness. Doesnt get alot of the ball, and is a little small/short but i am 100% confident he will be a first 22 player for us for most of his career

Doesn't qualify as father son for us. And having spent virtually his entire childhood and youth playing stick ball in the shadows of the pyramids he'll probably be so grateful for the opportunity the crows are giving him he won't consider not nominating them

The fact that the fruit of Russell Ebert's loins was not technically eligible to be taken by Port Adelaide as a father-son tells you all you need to know about the fairness of the system.

After watching him in the Futures Game I agree with this. At the moment he only gets the ball ~15 times a game, but every disposal finds a target in a good position and he is very good in traffic.

if he can start getting 20+ possessions a game I think he is a first round draft selection.

Played like 193ish? Before port entered the afl. Stupid rules designed to fu** us over

The rules are doing exactly what the sanfl and afl wanted.

Only 14th on this list of most games played before 1997, what a slacker.
Also only 4 premierships.

If only we had been a real football club, like those Victorian ones we often beat.

That port magpies (and north, west, WWT & centrals) rule ended in October 2017 i.e. 20 years after we entered the AFL. We now only have Power F/S eligibility.
