2nd night of the draft throws up some more questions...

- Do we trade up the board?
- Does R. Thompson stay a Sun?
- Do we draft any experienced players in Greenwoods spot?
Thompson will be drafted by Suns in pre-season draft on Fri. I assume he nominated only for pre-season draft.

I do like Kingy's insights into the state of the game and how he leans on analytics a lot, but is his opinion worth a lot when it comes to the draft? Somehow I doubt he's been watching these kids play.

I find it weird that he's doing so much commentary around the draft. Just doesn't seem his space at all. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and he knows a lot?
The coverage was cringeworthy.

AFL.com had Cal Twomey.

They needed to have a former list manager on the panel to explain draft swaps, more insight on the kids. A SOS like person.

So who are the guys who are likely to be delisted next year to free up spots?

Looking at the list players like Corbett and Burgess could be in the gun.

I actually think Corbett could be the 2nd tall forward.
Runs all day…
Mark’s everything..
Kicking getting better..

I’m sure He kicked a bag against the pies to win the game to be dropped?

I believe he is one of the players Dew mistreats.
Joins the a list of names Lyons Brodie Sexton Fiorini to name a few
who play better games then others.. but be the first to be replaced

Corbett would be a gun if he was 5-6cm taller OR he had better midfield attributes.

I like him in the team at the moment, but if he isn't marking it, he isn't really involved.
And at 190cm, he can't really be a dominant contested mark close to goal.

Excluding the sub game, in 2021
- 9 games with ≤10 possessions, total of 12 goals
- 4 games with >10 possessions, total of 11 goals

Could be a interesting year..

King Rankine and Lukosius staying or going?

Thompson? Is he playing? AFL?
Atkins? Is he playing? AFL?
Try and make deals and delist

is Ace still on our list?
Nicholls gone
Murtagh gone
McLennan gone
Macpherson should be gone.. but smoothing out his contract? :/

if key position stocks are going ok? Burgess gone
Corbett depends on Jefferys 2022
Fiorini? Trade?
Ainsworth? Best 22? Trade?

When the Suns were on and playing fast..
Corbett out worked everyone and kicked goals when king couldn’t get a kick

our midfield went missing for long periods this year..
King struggled to get goals in these games too

Corbett is a good player, but this day and age our key talls are all versatile and can play multiple positions.

Corbo will be fighting Sexton for a spot, who hopefully Hollands is putting pressure on.

Half the price, maybe a quarter of the player.

Hopefully proves everyone wrong, but Constable feels like the same player as Brodie.
Oh snap.

i still don’t know what was wrong with Brodie got 25 touches and generally most clearences In the games he played..

which wasn’t enough form line tbh

greenwood and Brodie I’d say had similar clearance rates
Greenwood tackles more n kicked the odd goal
But Brodie would get more disposals 🤷‍♂️

I reckon sexton fighting Ainsworth for that forward mid roll
Both have there deficiencies

Corbett versus Jeffery
Ainsworth is a walk up starter to my side, gut runner, links up good overhead just needs to kick straighter on goals. Yet to breakout.

Sexton i'm not going to be mad seeing him play but he'll be fighting Rankine early on. Depends if Ranks has come back switched on.

Jeffery i'm happy to give a few more years to add size and strength, does look good.
