Cal is informative, needs work on his charisma but very knowledgable. Riley just seems like that fat kid that Jonah Hill seems to play in all his movies. Not the star but always appears and does an ok job so keeps getting gigs.
You can't work on charisma, either you have it or ya ain't.

Depends on your definition of knowledgeable. If you define it as having greatclub contacts to predict the drafts well for public then sure but i want more than that from the coverage i want analysis of where the game trends are heading, what clubs need (why not just what) and its clear when cal speaks that not only does he have the personality of a wet lettuce leaf but he doesnt understand the game and cant analyse it-half the guys that do draft expert wraps onthis board could provide miles better in depth analysis than cal ever has and they arent paid to do it. Maybe hes doing what afl house instructs him to do but if so they are giving him bad instructions imoand the quality of draft coverage is getting worse not better at afl media.

Dont even start me on riley hes clearly a nice kid but half his expert comments about what clubs need are so way off its comical. Its like the work experience kid gotthrown in there as a late replacement.

Ridiculously impressive highlights


Putting on enough weight to compete with AFL CHB’s may be an issue, but he looks to have everything else.

How exciting for Fremantle. Taking a hanger then kicking it 60m off one step.

Forgive my ignorance but does anyone know whether the 'feeder clubs' who lose players in the mid-season draft get any compensation from the AFL and/or the drafting club?
The unaffiliated ones do, not sure what though

They do. You could google it, to find out.

Covid cut backs hit afl.com media as well.

10k, a pittance in the grand scheme of things that is pretty much useless to clubs right now. Costs more to transfer between sanfl clubs

They get $10k.

Thanks. That is indeed a pittance and highly inequitable...surely there's got to be a fairer and more sustainable structure of payments and rewards across the entire system.

The players don't have to put themselves into the draft.

It's unfair, but the lower leagues are largely now there to feed players into the AFL. The number is just an acknowledgement. The AFL probably knows drafted players would come no matter what.
