6.5. A typo KT but thank you for picking it up.6.6? Have you prorated last years shorter season? How many games were missed due to injury over the same period? You need to list all the facts with regards to the criteria before we can tell if “feel” is involved.
No I haven't laid out full week on week injury lists between 2015-16 and 2020-21. Since the AFL don't publicly state their "special sauce" I can only assume that equivalent games won (pro-rating only marginally kicks that up), high games missed due to injury tallies for us in 2020-21 and other unexpected events (Rhyce's mental health resignation) put us somewhat on par with Brisbane in this discussion.
If there's a big mitigating factor as to why they justified getting a priority pick and we don't, it's certainly not immediately apparent to me.
ALL THIS SAID - I do not expect to get a priority pick. But I don't why we'd roll over and accept it without some analysis and questions to head office first.
