So we still retain fs rights even after regular drafting age?
Till death do we part.

The only way we lose them is if he is drafted
As Jack Package mentioned.. If we choose to not match a bid on him and he is drafted by another club, we then lose the ability to re draft him as a father son option.

As a player who (assuming he nominated in his draft year) was overlooked and is now a mature aged player we do still hold the rights to him as a father/son player. Same as the WEagles did with Waterman (iirc) when they drafted him as a 22 year old mature ager from the WAFL.

Bad news for Matt Neagle, broke his arm pretty badly today against Yarrawonga. Reports from a couple blokes who were there said it was pretty sickening. Game was abandoned 5 minutes into the last quarter . Shocking for the kid.

While bad luck for Neagle, was the game essentially over when they called it off? I find it hard to believe they would because of an injury.

I saw a few horrid injuries when I played (the most graphic a snapped wrist in junior colts) and never was the game called off. 1 game was called off due to too many brawls and the umpires couldn't be ****** if the players weren't interested in playing football but never from an injury (can understand if life threatening though)

Is Willie any good? Currently serviceable as far as I'm concerned.
Willie Rioli from eagles?

Finished top 10 in a premiership sides B&F in pretty much his first year of AFL so yeh id says pretty good and certainly held highly amongst eagles coaching staff it seems

Ben Riolo played great football for NT Thunder, He always wears a helmet.
Not sure why he never went for AFL level.

Darcy Denham
Kurtis Barnard
Tom Hird
Kyle Baker (NGA)

Which ones, other than Fletcher and Baker, are playing TAC Cup D_P_S?
