Exactly what I was thinking.They want 1 & 2.
There's no way they should get it.
Would be funny if they did, purely because Adelaide.
Let's assume that Rowell and Anderson are indeed far and away the best two players of this draft.
Let's then imagine that we do indeed finish second last but Adelaide get pick #3 thanks to the GC, and take a player who they aren't particularly keen on.
Adelaide also finishes just outside of the finals, we get pick #10 and trade it for a once in a lifetime deal.
SOS would be smiling from ear to ear. I can just hear the raucous laughter over a good meal and a Chianti, already.
I'm assuming they want a PP, which would mean picks 1 and 2. I'm actually all for it; the Suns need to be better than they are, and anything that drives Adelaide's pick lower is far, far funnier.Correct me if I am wrong, but if the Suns finish 18th, they will get Pick 1 anyway.
WTF are they on about!
Except with the mid season draft access to the access to the State league is not what it used to be and not that much of a help.Exactly what I was thinking.
The AFL are more likely to construct some sort of mechanism forcing them to trade thew PP.
Reckon they'll be given first access to the State Leagues also, which isn't too bad an idea, as they'd actually be getting players desperate to play AFL football....play AFL football anywhere.
Recruiting isn’t the big problem it’s retaining players, because you play in front of a few thousand people in a non football state and a club with no history or soul."We are past the stage where we say, 'We will give you a couple of players from the VFL or SANFL or WAFL', it has to be something that breaks the cycle."
Ugh, recruit better
