Someone is gonna take Stengle.
True but this year should probably be viewed differently with nil Vic U18's playing last year.Should be noted that none of the 19yo’s picked in the last mid season draft made it. The only players that have looked quality were older experienced guys like Pickett, Snelling and Noble

We need another mid.
Serious upgrade on Sam O’Sutcliffe tho.
Har har har.The Power could do worse than pick up an ex-Crow, with Riley Knight leading the SANFL for disposals at Woodville-West Torrens and posting impressive numbers. They might even think about giving a lifeline to Cam Sutcliffe, who has led Port Magpies this year and is training at the club.
Leading up to Wednesday, June 2 all 18 AFL clubs will be frantically preparing for the opportunity to bring new talent onto their lists from the VFL, SANFL and WAFL. Of course, there are several clubs that planned for this eventuality by leaving rookie spots open on their lists, while other...www.theroar.com.au
So one player would cost us $10k plus say 5/12 a rookie base of $80k and if he plays 10 state games @$500 game that would be approx $48k. If he plays 3 AFL games @$4k a game and 7 state games that's approx $58k.THE AFL has committed to a single Mid-Season Rookie Draft next year, ditching a proposal for multiple 'waiver'-style periods throughout the season. Clubs received confirmation on Tuesday that the Mid-Season Rookie Draft would return on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, after being put on hold this season due to COVID-19.
Clubs eligible to select a player during the June intake must have a list spot open following the Rookie Draft or have moved a player to the inactive list via a retirement or long-term injury.
The AFL also confirmed the Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period (SSP) will return from January 6 and run until March 9 on the eve of the 2021 season.
Should any player selected in the SSP have signed a contract with a state league club, their new AFL home will be required to pay $10,000 that will come from outside the football department soft cap. Exclusions apply for players who had signed a consent form to train with the AFL club before committing to the state league club, or if the player was entering the 2020 drafts for the first time in their 18th year.
The flat fee of $10,000 applies for the Mid-Season Rookie Draft without any exclusions.
As was the case in 2019, players selected in the Mid-Season Rookie Draft will need approval from their original state league club should the two teams meet during the season, while the Mid-Season draftee will be eligible to return to their original club for finals if not required by their AFL club.

true, but at 27 he was like a 19-20 year old having been incarcerated and not having been flogged on the track. Also, a 'fast twitch' athlete, not a in and under mid tier accumulatorWhat about a Marlion Pickett type? Wouldn't mind a Brodie Mihocek type ie a 24-25 year old plays CHB at VFL level who when forced to play as CHF at AFL level, gets the job done.
I mentioned that 2 months ago. I love the idea of Freeman, if he can stay injury free up to the date - I am all in on him for 2 years. If he has so much as a runny nose, I’m out thanks.As much as I want to draft a kid who hasn't had the exposure due to Covid, with our current injury list, would Freeman be an option ??
My concern is that you would draft him to be a plug and play type, but he is so injury prone that im not sure you would get him on the park often enough. The last thing you want is to draft him to sit on the injury list for half a year.As much as I want to draft a kid who hasn't had the exposure due to Covid, with our current injury list, would Freeman be an option ??
