The AFL isnt turning a blind eye to incentives, the system is designed to positively encourage incentives.

Its not a flaw, its a feature.
I'm genuinely surprised that a bunch of teams got together to complain to the AFL about a development that is obviously bad for those teams, but probably good for the competition as a whole. I wonder just how hard the league was laughing at them behind their backs after the meeting was over.

And that i dont have a problem with but the u18 players should still have to nominate their state before trade week not a week before the draft so all clubs know what their picks are worth.

Eardley over Clarke? Interesting. Jasmine Fleming doesn't surprise, she's the best pure mid available. Eardley of course is a top pick, but considering Hawthorns defensive stocks are packed to the rafters, you think they'd want to boost their midfield stocks. I know Black has her going to Essendon earlier, but could she slide to pick 8?

Pie 4 Life PMBangers who do you think our winners and losers were outside the expansion teams?
Collingwood did extremely well for where their picks were placed and getting Evans as a UFA. Considering what the NSW pool was expected to be a month ago GWS also come out looking not bad.

I won't disclose losers because I'm just happy to see so many dreams realised, but in general I think an emphasis on speed has seen some good footballers get left off lists which is unfortunate, and some of the clubs that need to replace injured players for the upcoming season could really push themselves up the winners list by adding them

Also just for the records,
37/40 from May Power Rankings (just under two months out) got drafted, 46/50 from the extended 10.

I have to admit, I am excited about Imogen Evans. 171cm midfielder which is what we desperately need. Charlotte Blair was third in the time trial and Charlotte Taylor looks like some insurance for the future down back. I believe we still have two more spots to fill though to replace our inactive players.

A list spot has left EAC and has landed at LRW at Essendon Pie 4 Life and PMBangers.

Full name of the former: Eloise Ashley-Cooper. (Moved to the inactive list.)

Full name of the latter: Lily-Rose Williamson. (Just opened up.)
I was about to quote your earlier comment about how many I got and say "plus one" 😉

Like I said, wanna come join the dark side?
AFLW is different to the men's comp at the moment I reckon. I don't have a distaste for any side and just enjoy the footy. It's also because most of the players that have come through I've watched grow through the pathways, so wish them all the best.
