Bet you still wonder how Wayne never won one between 1993 - 1999 ( ' 97 the exception )
I've heard some descriptions of the conversations he'd have with umpires on field and as a result I'm not that surprised.

Matthews never won one either. Either did Ablett. Probably those three are up there for greatest ever players.

They did all win the Players association MVP tho, along with Corza.
And he kept belting dodgey backmen

From The Age

This year’s grand finalists have built their lists in a very similar fashion. The basic template is:
  • Nail top 10 draft picks in consecutive drafts
  • Have some father-son luck
  • Develop some mid-range draftees
  • Boldly trade out a brilliant but high-maintenance player with market value
  • Fill holes by trading experienced players into the side
  • Don’t waste a crisis
  • Leave St Kilda fans exasperated (this last one is inadvertent).

Getting those early picks right
For varying reasons, Cale Morton, Jack Watts, Tom Scully, Jack Trengove and Jimmy Toumpas departed Melbourne well before the Dees contended for this premiership. If you are poor enough for long enough, you will keep getting early picks, and eventually Melbourne had a run of early selections that they nailed. The jewels here are clearly Christian Petracca and Clayton Oliver, but Christian Salem and Angus Brayshaw have also become important cogs, with Salem taking his game to another level this season.

The Dogs didn’t plumb the sustained depths Melbourne did. They didn’t waste years of early picks because they were preliminary finalists three years running from 2008 to 2010. But the Dogs’ two best players in 2021 were top-five draft picks in consecutive years: Jack Macrae and Marcus Bontempelli.

Thanks dad
The Dogs enjoyed a charmed run with father-son selections. To have access within five years to Tom Liberatore, Mitch Wallis, Lachie Hunter and Zaine Cordy (older brother Ayce didn’t quite make it) is up there with the best paternal runs in VFL/AFL history. The Dees didn’t quite have the quantity to match but getting Jack Viney with a second-round pick in 2012 meant Melbourne effectively got another top-10 draft pick who is close enough to be peaking at the same time Petracca, Salem and Oliver are also in their prime.


Digging deep
Building a list cannot entirely be about top-10 picks. Certainly those early selections are critical, but to build a support cast clubs need to find some diamonds in the rough. The most glittering of those diamonds is Max Gawn, 208 centimetres and most definitely rough around the edges but a selection deep in the second round who has worked out brilliantly. The Dees have a host of later or rookie picks who have worked out well: Tom McDonald, Alex Neal-Bullen, Bayley Fritsch, James Harmes, Charlie Spargo etc. The Dogs have had success in this regard too, dating all the way to Easton Wood with pick 43 in 2007 and Jason Johannisen as a rookie at the end of 2010. A premiership captain and a Norm Smith medallist. Handy.

Make the gutsy call
The Dogs and the Dees have in the past four years both relinquished one of their most talented but enigmatic players. Only a year on from the 2016 premiership the Bulldogs offloaded Jake Stringer to Essendon at a time when “The Package” should have been theoretically coming into his prime. It was a risky call and no doubt Stringer would’ve been useful this year, a season in which he reached new heights. But from that trade the Dogs found one of the picks that helped them gain Josh Schache, who has come from the clouds to play a key role in this finals series.

It was Melbourne’s turn a year later. Jesse Hogan had been built up to almost messianic proportions when signed via the mini-draft at the end of 2012. He won the Rising Star Award in 2015 and the prospect of him returning to Western Australia one day loomed as the Dees’ doomsday scenario.
And then it happened. And the world didn’t cave in. In fact, Melbourne managed to effectively turn Hogan into Steven May, who after a shaky start has become one of the Demons’ pillars. They also gained the draft pick that netted Tom Sparrow, another senior regular. Hogan was gone from Fremantle after just two years. He remains a threat at Greater Western Sydney but the Dees have come out of this series of deals very well.

Experience counts
The cream of both grand finalists came via early draft picks. But both have also done good business at the trade table in recent seasons. The Dogs lured Alex Keath and Josh Bruce in 2019 while still keeping their first pick, which they used on Cody Weightman. Last year it was Adam Treloar, Mitch Hannan and Stefan Martin. From earlier years, Hayden Crozier, Schache and Taylor Duryea have also been helpful acquisitions.

Melbourne have been similarly successful. Jake Lever has been instrumental to their success, so too May. Ed Langdon was acquired for a very reasonable price, while free agent Adam Tomlinson played an important role this year before going down with injury. The Dees then turned back-up ruckman Braydon Preuss into Ben Brown at the end of 2020.

The recession they had to have
It isn’t as though both clubs enter the decider on the back of long runs of making the finals. The Dogs won just eight matches in 2018, but that gave them the chance to pick early in the “super draft”, where they picked Bailey Smith, arguably the player of the finals to date. Melbourne finished second-bottom only two years ago but struck gold in the draft with Luke Jackson, Kozzy Pickett - acquired via a canny deal with North Melbourne - and Trent Rivers.


Oh, when the Saints
Which brings us to St Kilda. Poor old St Kilda, who will again have the longest active premiership drought if the Dees salute. Saints fans hardly need reminding that their club bypassed each of Petracca, Bontempelli and Aaron Naughton, all of whom were taken with a pick immediately after a St Kilda player. It’s a brutal business, drafting in the top 10. Or even deeper, as former Saint Nick Winmar acknowledged on Twitter the night of the Dees-Cats preliminary final. Winmar, a distant relative of celebrated Saint Nicky Winmar, was taken at pick 32 in the 2009 draft, two spots ahead of Gawn. Winmar finished his AFL career unbeaten, but alas the sample size was two matches.

Gee whiz, bit a mayo conveniently wiped off the shirt in that article......anyone remember how the dogs ended up with pick 6 and 7 in the Macrae year...they also took Stringer that year from memory.
GoDees have had a fair bit a help too....how'd they get Petracca and Brayshaw back 2 back in that draft?

Brayshaw was a Free Agency Compensation pick for James Frawley going to Hawthorn. Unbelievable value from that.

Understating it generously! Quite a bit of retro-fitting done to make it work! I think the dogs were right to get rid of Stringer, but I think on the back of a couple of decent recent matches from Schache, it's a stretch to claim recruiting him is already a valuable "gutsy" move.

So an aging James Frawley left a struggling club as a backman to chase a flag with a top club ?

Well l never ! Really ? Got more chance of me being the first man on Mars than this ever happening again !

I think there is a ladder position weighting in FA compo calculations.
It feels that way to me anyhow.
