Only chance you guys have got of beating us is in the practise game at Arden St, even then you are rank outsiders. Preussy gunna tear you a new one.

Very interested to see what Preussy looks like in real AFL action, haven't really followed his progress since he left for the Dees.

However he goes, he's no Max Gawn! Don't really wish injury on anyone but it does provide opportunity for a top 10 pick coming our way.

Still dirty we traded our 1st pick to them, could have been Sam Flanders.

How much did you see of Ned Flanders in 2019?

I think they were trying Preuss as a forward? When they played him and Gawn, pinch hit ruck at best?

Sam Flanders would have been a great pick in the draft like you say Anvil I always show a bit of interest in the under 18 comp and future draftees Sam was the one i was most keen on. Think he could be a very very good player in the future. but it is what it is lets hope we nail it this year what ever our plans are.

Nothing in person, highlights online like most. Is there something you saw that would suggest he isn't worth pick 9? Seems like the sort of bloke who could develop into a game winner (rather than just solid at a position).

Any player that is a Roos fan I generally take additional interest in. Felt disappointed that he didn't get Dow or Andy Brayshaw prior to that (doesn't mean I'm not satisfied with LDU).

Not sure what we see in getting the Dees pick when they have a healthier list and a very easy draw. Maybe something in play like trading 2 first rounders for an established gun? I know we got more draft points in the trade but we should be in the game of getting 200+ game players not winning some fantasy battle.

A bottom 6 finish would have vindicated our trade choice, our best drafts and trade have been the med-tier types that takes the next level. So we might have drafted well as we do need a small crumbing forward.

It depends. Can heal without surgery. They'd like to avoid it and would have strapped him into a weight bearing brace pretty quickly. It might be one of those scenarios where they take the non-surgical approach, doesn't work, and they go in for surgery. Tricky situation and might lead to him being out for longer.

I watch a fair few Carlton games and Dow is a worry for me. Opposition supporters might say the same about LDU, but Dow’s disposal has been horrendous. I’m also yet to see if he is better suited on the inside or outside, as I have been underwhelmed in both area’s. If that draft went around again, LDU would still be top 5 in my pecking order.

If our picks remain the same going into the next draft, we will be bringing in two 1st rounders and four 2nd rounders over the 2019 & 2020 drafts. That’s not a fantasy battle, that is using the hand we have and making it substantially better.
If we were to end up with a couple of decent first rounders next year (or even one), we have the ability to make our hand even better with clubs paying overs to get ahead of a bid. We could potentially split a first rounder and go into next years draft with three 1st rounders or two first rounders and two 2nd rounders.
