*Yet - until GWS trades half a dozen players and somehow ends up with 2-3 picks in the top 10. Hopefully that won't happen this year.
Good point.

GWS could have band one compensation picks from Cameron, Williams and Corr.

Which would be #10, #11, #12

They will be able to buy a top five pick with that.

I would love the media to actually look into the 25% point discount. I think you would find the actual discount is far smaller as clubs are asking for overs for clubs that are trading to accumulate points.

Teams pay an extra 20-50% for upgrading.

Generally speaking higher the pick higher %.

I did not realise they were twins.
Give him a chance.
Port messed that up considering they could of picked up Mick as a cat b.
Imagine having those 2 each on their own wing.
Speed demons who like a goal & love a tackle.

Our Frederick is going to be a gun.
Why not give theirs a run..
Really? I reckon he's fairly average. When Sturt is injury free, Henry builds his tank and learns what defensive pressure is, Frederick will struggle to get a game. He's filling a role until others are ready, he isn't best 22 material in my opinion

I beg to differ. For a first year player he is a gun.

I’m factoring a quite significant development in Freddy from here - and he’s already at a good base level. I can picture a tougher, more contested version of BHill - reckon he has that unique combination of pace and endurance potential to get there.

Hill is also what Freddy isn't, a very good ball distributor and decision maker. Hope I'm wrong, but he's simply filling a role until the more skilled players are ready. Freddy is basically a Petruccelle/Coyler type. People will say he's still young, give him time, so much potential....it's fairly obvious what he is.

I agree it’s silly to downplay BHill and talk up Freddy as an upgrade.

I disagree that Freddy is Petruccelle like. I understand where you’re coming from though as Freddy’s weakness is certainly double touching and fumbling the ball. He needs to address that. Petruccelle is a genuine Headless chook and best recent example of a front running seagull that I can remember.

But from what I’ve seen of Colyer and Petruccelle is neither of them can nail a set shot from outside 50. In fact there is preseason highlight of Freddy nailing a goal from outside 50 off one step in addition to a couple of long set shots he has made in AFL. Also Freddy’s pressure acts have been very good. Tackling is a bit weak but he has a thin frame so understandable.

Too early to say he is going to be a gun, but he has some attributes and deserves opportunity to be better judged after some pre-seasons and the development of a larger frame.

As for his brother I haven’t seen a lot to suggest he would be a value add. We have the better Frederick.

this for sure, definitely a project player but the potential is definitely there. Next year tbh I’d expect him to spend more time at Peel than with the main side but imo he’s definitely shown signs that he could be a very damaging half forward/wing type in years to come

I'm With you
Hope he comes through , hell of an athlete and amazing recovery but it poses the question....
Is it more likely you will make a good footballer out of an athlete who doesn't have football sense or a footballer who trains to become more athletic ?

when I'm watching Freddy I'm watching a guy running after the ball and the opposition at 100 miles an hour , generally out of position, exciting but not good football.
Surely there's kids out there who have got footy smarts and can run and chase ?
