    He said he would love to be at St. Kilda because he barracks for them. And nothing wrong with the word RATHER. Every single draftee would rather stay in the state they live in or play for the club they grew up barracking, anyone who says otherwise is full of it. Also both Kings have also both said they'd be okay with playing where ever they get picked up. You're reading way to much into trivial comments. Not like they flat out said they refuse to. And they can say whatever they like, they are not bound to the AFL or any rules until pen is on paper. Besides its likely both were also asked directly about the Saints and Bulldogs in their interview as both players have been heavily linked to both teams by many draft observers.

    Don't think it will be the Crows as Sydney gave us their 1st rounder as part of the Gov trade... so usually there is a gentleman's agreement.

    and traditionally Adelaide and Sydney have had a pretty good relationship, even if we don't trade with each other much.

    ****, just forgot about Tippett though, that probably did not help the Sydney/Adelaide relationship.

    Random question but who was the last player who played for the Swans before moving to the Crows? I am probably forgetting someone obvious but I can't think of anyone off the top of my head.

    I knew I would forget a good amount of players. Side note, I am glad I am not a recruiter as I loved Lewis Johnston in his draft year and was so glad when the Swans picked him. Thought he was going to be a gun.

    So how is the literally 1 decent key position player going for you guys? You know, the one you grabbed in free agency after developing at another club?

    We have plenty of good key position players. It is key position forwards we are low on.

    No idea about Saints, but Dogs have Morris, Cordy and Naughton down back, so not sure how that's worse than Sydney?

    I was referring to the formally highly rated Boyd, Schache and McCartin. All of whom were top 2 in their respective drafts, and all of whom have not really delivered as promised.

    I think key position forwards are a huge risk in the national draft, especially in the top 10.

    Doubt it will ever be introduced - Big difference between the maturity of an 18 year old and an American equivalent who is drafted at 22 - Add the fact that the 22 year old has probably moved out of home to study at University and you have a world of difference.

    I don't really understand your point.

    The kids are drafted on the night anyway, where they end up at the very end of the night is irrelevant, they are still getting drafted.

    Clubs will still take into account their character, go home factor etc.

    Have heard that Freo have met with GWS this morning, i assume Freo will try and move their next pick up the draft order to try and get Hill.
