An AFL club would do well to take a punt on Oakleigh Chargers wingman, Karl Worner.He's got a sharp turn when he plays on.
Can someone unlock from paywall the story from the Herald Sun (6 days ago) "Why Clubs Should Take A Punt on Chargers Wingman".
Would take anything that bloke says with a large keg of salt.I do like reading this analysis of the Freo picks... "... I would've taken Erasmus" for pick 8 (Freo ). "... and Freo should've picked someone like Johnson" for 10. Freo: "Hold my beer" https://www.espn.com.au/afl/story/_...draft-chris-doerre-espn-reviewing-first-round
Of course, the draft is won and lost in the next 5 years, not today, but Freo's haul looks likely to be handy.
When players can be offered a contract at the draft, so they sign for five years or one year depending on which club wants them, thats when the rookie list can go.Wish they had some rookie draft reaction videos. The first round ones are great and everything, but those guys know they're getting drafted, it's just a matter of to where.
Imagine the Karl Worner and Josh Treacys being genuinely pumped just to get drafted.
Also quietly, when will they get rid of the rookie list?
Surely there's other ways to structure the salary cap and lists now.
I still think there should be tiers that limit what can be offered, and first round / second round / later would be a reasonable split.When players can be offered a contract at the draft, so they sign for five years or one year depending on which club wants them, thats when the rookie list can go.
I don't think he gets past the 30s.Here’s a question - if Hawthorn had not taken Conor mcDonald at 26 and gone elsewhere, it seems Carlton may have taken him instead of Motlop.
So, in that hypothetical scenario, would Jesse have slid though to pick 41 after that do you guys reckon, or would someone else like North have picked him in the 30s?
We really stuffed up the rookie draft eh.So basically this thread can be summed up:
We had an awesome draft because we drafted all WA kids. WC had a terrible first day because they overlooked WA kids, Then WC had an awesome second day because they drafted WA kids.
