100%, he wouldn't nominate without a club expressing interest beforehand... and there's a strong chance it'll be us.
You think we will draft him with our pick in the 60's because apparently we don't have a rookie pick? I can't see it but I do agree a club must have expressed interest for him to put his hand up surely.

He'll face the Marty Clarke problem -- too long out of the game, which has changed since he last played it, too old when he comes back.

6 of 1, 1/2 dozen the other for me. I think the introduction of the 6-6-6 rule helps his case, makes his "get ball and run really fast" approach a more important aspect. At 26 there remains time for him if he's selected.

Yeah, I thought that Marty Clarke would come back and be at least a B+. Though admittedly he had that chronic fatigue or whatever it was. I guess Mooney does have the pace the Clarke lacked. But probably not the natural talent.

Hopefully you're not suggesting we waste a spot for this bloke?, I like your posts but I'm sure about this one

He had the pace 5 years ago, doesn't mean he still has it, I saw this guy play a lot of VFL and he was a shocker

Wasn't aware that I'd suggested anything of the sort although if we had a suite of rookie list spots to fill I certainly wouldn't be averse to adding him. That's not our situation though.

We already have our 60's range speculative pick of a pacy small defender / midfielder with sometimes questionable disposal by foot on board in Noble.

No chance we draft Mooney - ex players nominate themselves all the time but that doesn't mean that a club is into them to any real degree.
