This is really strange logic. The fact that you got Philps "for free" is besides the point. The point is, you could have had any other player available at that selection "for free", but instead you chose Philps. The price you paid is overlooking another, potentially better, player.-I’ve got no idea who Philps is, but he’s basically free as we rated Kemp as the next best player
by taking philp, the opportunity cost was not taking one of ... Gould, Robertson, Shoenberg, Worrell, Sharp, Rivers etc. So that 'free hit' they got needs to be judged against those players SOS overlooked to reach for PhilpThis is really strange logic.

It's like being given a free dip from a bucket of gold nuggets, coming up with a turd, and then saying "well it was free so it's a win!"
Maybe Philps will turn out to be the best choice there... although given Carlton's record, I wouldn't be placing money on it.
What an analysisShifter likes 3 of our 5 picks....
AFL draft 2019, Every pick of the 2019 AFL draft, Your AFL club’s draft picks, Kevin Sheehan, Michael AblettThe lives of a plethora of young boys have been changed, after they were drafted to AFL clubs over two consecutive nights at the 2019 draft. Now the assessment begins.www.foxsports.com.au
Fischer McAsey (6), Harry Schoenberg (24), Josh Worrell (28), Ronin O’Connor (42), Lachlan Gollant (48)
They’ve got a couple of tall boys there in McAsey and Worrell so they’ve gone for some key positions – and they can both go at both ends of the ground. Then they’ve got Schoenberg, the inside midfielder. So I think it’s some terrific pick ups they’ve got there with three choices of their fives.
Good write up. Mcasey does have a nice kick on him and unlike talia and hartigan has a flat penetrating kick. You can best see evidence of this when you watch his sandrinham games. I have also noticed he doesnt seem to be a big spoiler of the ball rather seems to like going for his marks. Personally i hoping we develop him more as a forward where he has played quite a bit.Just watched a few metro and SA u18 games again keeping a close eye on our first 3 picks. Watched a WA game where O'Connor didn't really get near it.
McAsey is a real general in the air. Aerial ability is excellent as is his ability to read where the ball is going and get off his opponent. Takes a lot of grabs rather than punching. He's a big lad though so obviously not the most nimble. Hamish said he has good foot skills but I haven't witnessed that yet. Wouldn't say bad but nothing special.
Worrel played mostly up forward in the games I saw but definitely looks versatile. Good left foot and rarely misses. A lot more agility than McAsey. The talent is there for sure.
Schoenberg really impresses me with his vision and decision making in close. He's a natural at finding it and knowing what to do with it. Has an awkward and poor looking kicking style but I can't say I've seen him stuff up too many. Can't shake the Neale comparison but with a bit more pace.
Of picks from other clubs:
Rowell really got sat on during the Champs but still manages to show the most out of anyone.
Anderson is an interesting one. He runs really hard both ways and shows flashes of class but I reckon he's overrated and will frustrate his supporters. That could come back to bite me but I've seen him make some bad errors and decisions. He also looks like a real dick on the field.
Sladocjevic or however you spell it looked really horrible.
Another call that could come back to bite is that I think Pickett could be a real flop. Occasionally does something that wows you but does the wrong thing too often imo. You look at Henry and its chalk and cheese. He rarely makes a mistake.
Stephens could also go either way.
Bergman might turn out to be a really good pick up for Port and I think mead could be handy.
Option 2 would have netted us the equivalent of pick 1 & 25 points wise or Kemp, Robertson and a 2nd vs McAsey.If we’ve always wanted McAsey and turn 4 into McAsey, a first rounder and a second rounder it’s just good business.
Why do people struggle with this?
What if we’ve actually always really wanted Day and Kemp and use Carlton and Geelong to turn 4 into:
- Three First Rounders (14, 17, 2020 GWS)
- Second Rounder (2020 CARL)
- not to mention our other picks 22, 23
Maybe this explains Binuk’s Draft Day post it note tweet.
