I get the warm feelings for poor old Gold Coast.. but worth keeping half an eye on them
Rankine, Lukosius, King, Rowell, Anderson + a few other very recent first round picks + 2 more next year + you can bank on a few guns coming from their Darwin Rookie deal
In a few years,, thats a scary list!

Is it scarier than Steven May, David Swallow, Harley Bennell, Sam Day, Josh Caddy, Dion Prestia, Tom Lynch, Seb Tape, Zac Smith, Rory Thompson, Charlie Dixon, Mav Weller, Josh Toy, Trent McKenzie, Brandon Matera?

No. That's their "scary list" from 2010

Interesting article from Jake Niall
"Kids from a private school - once considered "soft" - are now almost 4 times as likely to be drafted in @AFL as a state school kid.
A quarter of the past 2 drafts are from just 11 elite (APS) schools in Vic
"

A later comment by Jake in the thread
"Brighton Grammar defied numbers- only about half the Yr 12 enrolment of Scotch, Caulf GS, Haileybury, St Kevin's, Xavier - to win 3 flags. Must've had a good coach then!"

A really interesting read SwansProudly The AFL have to be very careful how this goes forward. They could end up isolating and disenfranchised the players they need for a larger competition

No mention of the Northern states in this, I know LRT was private school not sure about any others, although a fair few of the Riverina boys were hunted by Vic private school.

Speaking of the Riverina district, where’s that huge flux of players the Giants were snaring/stealing gone to now? Completley dropped off the map now their under norm draft rules

Agreed. Drove over our freshly put down grass at our property in his Range Rover. :mad:
Also let his his polo pony chew the corners of our picnic blanket one time. Not to mention when my mate was building a sandcastle, and Gil skiid straight into it on purpose (who takes f***ing snow skis to the beach?!).

Aristocratic w***er.

Surely technology has got to a point where they can put a chip in the ball that tracks it and can measure a deviation, that the ball crossed the line (goals or boundary) and even if it went through the goals!

Anyway...
As if they would cut down the playtime for networks. Networks probably figure that at half time people walk away to do shit and don’t see their ads. They won’t cut the runtime of the “show” which will allow longer periods for advertisers with viewers watching pre and post match shows.

Finally, the next idea in the same article of having a player driven review system? Seriously!
