Seems like the exact thing we’d roll over for. And the only player either SA side selected was an existing Port man.

You don’t reckon there was ONE eligible player Hamish liked?
Hamish is on record as saying he was very much against the mid season draft. Feels a good team plans for potential injuries and has a good injury prevention programs.

It wouldn’t surprise if we did have a bit of an agreement not to draft any SANFL lads.

We do have a history of going 1-2 short on a list too though, so wouldn’t surprise as we legitimately weren’t interested, it’s not as though we had a great pick in the draft.

What? Top end picks is talent ID, trading was s**t, we overpaid and undersold and his position didn’t appoint coaches, the board does that. At Brisbane, he’s not Talent ID, the coach was employed before he was and their trading is evens at present. Brisbane will flatline because Noble will have infested the footy culture with his anti-ruthlessness and patented stat-o-matic system. Nothing more certain.
Just for you, couldn't help myself... ;)

And nabbing the previously injury prone Lincoln McCarthy from the Cats is looking like a masterstroke.
He's always made good moves, he just sometimes pays too much. Grabbed us JJ, Lynch, Jacobs, Seedsman, Betts as a FA, traded in for both Crouch brothers and Luke Brown.

Refreshing to see this reaction from an SANFL club instead of the usual whinging

......the usual whinging........
This current AFL myopic thought fart is the biggest load of s**t that is being farted out continuously with f*** all basis and no context. It’s s**t like this that Josh Jenkins farts out without any perspective to the bigger issue.

There isn’t one SANFL club that has an issue with players being developed and drafted into the AFL. The issue was and only ever has been how the MSD affects the State League Competitions all across the country, the total lack of valid compensation given and the AFL ignoring all concerns put forward. The very same arguments were continually put forward by VFL clubs, I heard Mark Williams, Gary Ayres and other VFL coaches explain the problems and their concerns numerous times over just as SANFL officials voiced theirs.

Yet all we get is inane thought farts spewing the same old rhetoric.

Interestingly, the SANFL clubs use the lure of a possible AFL drafting as the way to entice players from their local clubs, their country clubs and from other sports.

Then complain that it should only be done on their terms at a time that suits them and gains them significant compensation.

"We have no problem with players being drafted into the AFL but... <insert actual opinion on the matter>"

Again, what a load of inane regurgitated crap.

Good selection should win this week and make the finals Blighty agrees

after finishing 12th last year would be a good bounce back and get the most out of the aging players

because when they are gone our drafting is bad and we will be destroyed
