A dedicated thread for conversations in the lead up to and during the live events over the next few days.

It'll be interesting to discuss the machinations of pick 19 and what we intend to do with it, once we actually know who is left on the board after the first round concludes later this evening.

The latest from the AFL site has us taking Hobbs at 8!! Even stranger is that the eagles will overlook both Erasmus and Johnson for Chesser at 12. (A guy the draft “guru” knightmare hasn’t even put in his top 70 players this year).
shits about to get real people.

That wasn't AFL that was fox footy, and I don't think it is accurate at all. Cal Twomey will be the closest predictor no doubt in my mind.

If Freo draft Hobbs there will be a Ryan Daniels article with the headline Hobbs a Shaw Thing. Which will be clever but uuuggghhhh.

If our future with him is that we never lose a clearance and play three rebounding running defenders who run past for a handball every stoppage then that's lovely.

Is Hobbs in another league to Johnson at clearances?

Very different league, Hobbs would destroy Johnson at the stoppages currently.

I'd look at Johnson how Walsh was played at Carlton, one handball off the contest and running around to offer an option for a kick. Except Johnson can kick the ball himself.

We need a player who can play that inside/outside role and use the ball well. Johnson can do that.
