I know I’m bias, but as a neutral I know which is the better crop
It’s completely impossible to answer that question yet. We will have some idea in 2028 maybe!

I assume you are referring to the depth/quality difference between the two drafts!

Yeh that’s what I’m getting at.
But also was having a debate about about how the Coasters are cleaning up with all the local kids and we’re missing out. But I think our hall was and will be better

Consider we had higher picks and a better draft year, it’s no surprise.
I think it goes deeper than that. In two drafts they have sold their pick for more picks.
Instead of trusting their hand, they have gone quantity over quality.
It’s a gamble that could pay off, but then you look at the Ex-Freo players picked
up and even the Western talk.
Their list is seriously unbalanced, and yet Hurn is still there.
They are trying to rebuild on the cheap, cutting corners and yet still think they
have enough premiership players for one more challenge.
They do well with key positions, flankers, but the midfield?
Simpson inherited most of the pieces for that flag, and ever since the management
have dropped the ball.

Funny how now this year is the worse draft year yet all of last November there was talk about wanting to trade into the next draft so we can pick some talls as the crop would be better

What happened to guys like broadbent? Was a top 10 pick this time last year.

West Coast do think they can rebuild quick but they hasn’t nailed a draft since 2017.

Their under 25s is the worst in League and them thinking that they will what they did in the past is nuts.

The two downgrades isn’t a reflection of the quick rebuild mentality.

Pick 12 for Pick 14 and future second is a pretty good deal. If they rated picks 12-14 as the same it’s a no brainer trade for them.

Trading out pick 2 was due to the Victorian mummy boys and they were forced to downgrade to a part in the draft where their are more WA talent.

The longer they think it will be quick the longer the pain which I am very fine with.

I dunno. Attitude seems most of it
I didn't like him in one game I saw in the first half and then he was excellent in the second half. Between the championships and the Colts, i had pretty much written him off until that second half.

I understand what you are saying and agree regarding last year's draft. This year given the evenness I think it's a good move by them. They will get two quality players.

Taylor is there another window for picking up delisted or retired exAFL players? I'm hearing that North are picking up Jarrod Cameron but I thought we were done and dusted for list lodgements now.

They can be added to rookie lists until some time early March as supplementary players
