I see Mark Maclure has given both barrels to our old mate Brackets.

Maclure expects the Blues to lose patience with McGovern in the coming weeks.

“He had five touches. I’m not certain that they will play him in the next few weeks,” Maclure said on Fox Footy.

“For mine, he doesn’t work hard enough and we’ve all talked about that.”

Didn't Carlton ask for one last year but the AFL knocked them back?
The AFL basically begged them to apply for one and turned them down anyway. It was hilarious. The reaction from Blues fan was pretty funny too. A whole lot of them went from "I wonder what PP we get" to "we don't need another skinny kid anyway".

Priority Picks should have been completely removed as a possibility with the introduction of future pick trading.

Unbelievable they weren't really.
AFL should just make the first 10 picks sacrosanct. That covers the teams that didn't make finals (or traded cleverly with such a team). Give a PP at 11 but the team awarded it MUST trade it for a player.

The whole idea that drafting a young gun even @ 1 suddenly solves your problems is absurd.

Trading 11 gets you a genuine,proven player.

The team is also awarded an end of first round PP the year after (19) They can either use it or trade it.


Using something like this means that clubs who trade for the following draft are somewhat protected whilst the pick itself comes in the draft after next.

And as any Carlton supporter will tell you right now, 11 and 19 is totally worth #2 right?

Lol Carlton have "managed" Kade Simpson in one of their more winnable games.

Are they tanking?
He was dropped. They just don't want to come out and say it as he's been a good player for them over many years.

I wish someome at Adelaide could "manage" Richard Douglas.

Well currently Hugh wouldn't get a game in Ports midfield..... and Carlton do know a C grader when they see one.

TBH they aren't far off, at his best he's a solid B but he's not performing close to that now.

I'll take b grader..as for port i did the footywire stats comparison and he is gaving a better year than both ebert and powel pepper. But i disagree with your carlton analysis..they take good players and MAKE them c graders

The AFL are extremely keen to at least keep the first 2 round selections in the ND "uncompromised"

GC in particular would benefit more from assistance in other areas
