Who is Knightmare? Another keyboard wannabe?

If he half an eye for talent he would have had Dow top 12 in this draft
I'm not going to bag anyone who puts their aggots on the line and has a crack.
Just seemed weird to me because Ralphsmith definitely a slider.

I find Knightmare to be wrong more times than right, but I do recall him saying Ralphsmith was very ordinary before the draft, so he probably didn’t consider him a “slider”.

Snoop dog is the only one worth anything. Knightmare produces a lot of content and if you want to kill some time leading into the draft it’s an all right read. Chris is a SA fanboy, take anything he posts from that perspective as he’s usually miles away in his rankings but his profiles are a good read.

Watch the 1st half of Vic M v Vic C at the G this year. Dow played on Anderson and gave him a bath

Knightmare must be like Brad Johnson and not be able to see Richrond young guns when on the ground

Interesting how Knightmare said we reached for Dow but then didn't priase the selection of Ralphsmith who slipped quite a way to our pick.
I think Knightmate is a victim of his own notoriety. Obviously does a shit lot of research however IMO places to much emphasis upon continual effort when assessing kids rather than the elite glimpses a kid may show . Whilst also being harsh on when a kid has a stinker . The variation on the system and circumstances kids have in the year prior to the draft is immense and unfortunately often overlooked .

well summed up mate.
I admire anyone like KM who puts their cahoonas on the line.
he obvioulsy knows his stuff.
ust shows the draft is totally random and the last picked bloke could be better than the first picked.
Shit we had 7 rookie players in our premiership side this year.
Let that sink in for a sec.

Cant wait to see him in a tigers jumper, I reckon he will bring out the best in Daniel aswell with abit of competition or enjoyment of playing together.

One of my mates young bloke played in the losing side against Junior.
Said he was very good.
Young fella (my mate's young bloke) was also very good for a team that got flogged.

most so called phantom drafters have no clue...just like most of us ..

.look at all those highly rated picks that will now play in secondary leagues whilst so many clubs year after year had ‘speculative picks’
Speculative by whose standard?
I trust my club to know their shit not righteous flogs here or in the media who think their shit doesn’t stink

when KM is held to scrutiny, he goes AWOL...like so many

It’s a passion for the guy so good on him, but he gets more wrong than right. Look at his thread on the Collingwood board where he compares his Collingwood picks to the actual ones. Horrendous.

His underrating of Dow (along with many media) is primarily Thompson not performing on the biggest stage consistently. I doubt they travelled out to any of Dows school games.

I’m not pumping Thompson up by the way, I know little about him. But I know that the amount of time they put into him was significant and from hearing the process they go through, fully back our recruiters to make the right calls.
