Hey guys, scuse the intrusion. Thought you might like to have this resource on your board (mods might like to sticky):
FOXTEL will probably replay last night's riveting procedings if you are interested. Unless of course they have scheduled more of that Bombers - Tales of a Great Club, crap. I still have not caught the Stephen Dank, James Hird, Bomber Thompson episode.Hey all, what time do I tune in for our selections today?
to be honest most clubs had ‘meh’ drafts, including ours. Richmond and Freo were really good. Collingwood also got lucky and worked it very well.
Outside of that, everyone else just seemed to tick the boxes and do as expected.
That being said across the draft and trade period port has added KPP depth in Skinner and Finlayson, a developing ruck (REH must think he is dreaming), some outside run and class in Burgoyne and Jackson and much needed speed and midfield depth in Sinn. Future looked after (Sinn) and the now covered too(skinner and Finlason). We’ve lost Ladhams and a few past it or not going to make it players.
From what we had available to us, we’ve done the best we could. It’s not Richmond’s draft, which we didn’t have the picks for and we didn’t get lucky like Collingwood, but we did well and optimised what we had.
Adelaide’s strength used to be good talls, off the back of they just kept recruiting them, whether that was a desperate need or not. That they’ve still got most of their other issues, but now will have few quality talls coming through as well is great.Are Adelaide going for a midget 22?
No, in the past he's changed his power rankings based on draft rumours. McAsey went from 12 to 6 in his power rankings a few years back once the rumours about Adelaide locking on him started. And there was no football played to influence that change.Those are his phantom drafts (more based on where he thinks they will go) rather than his power ratings (based on where he values them).
He also tends to put a high value on contested possessions which might have gone against Sinn.
