What do you mean Curnow wouldn't have dropped to us?
But seeing how he was there for Carltons 11 pick that we swapped to them, he would have been there for if we kept it. As Carlton people I have spoken to, said they would not have used that earlier pick on him.We gave Carlton pick 11 for there 20 and 21.
They used 11 for Curnow while we got Dunkley and Collins.
Talk is that if we kept 11 they would have used pick 4 on him as they were that keen. Might also have been gobbled up in the teens of still available so no way was he dropping to 20.
Macrae has done well in the CSM over the years. He came third very early in his career and has usually been in the top 5. Missed out by one vote last year because Hunter played more games.wonder were he will place in our bnf. Had an average first 4 or 5 games but has been great the last 10 or so games. will be close between he and the bont. Daniel missed to many games and Macrae always polls poorly. Dunks will be top 2 imo.
He spent a couple of weeks over summer at the Nike training facility in the US (with Bont and Croz) which helped. It's not an asset but he's a touch quicker than he was.I didn’t get to watch the game but from that vision it looks like Dunks is pretty speedy. I always thought of him as a little on the slow side. Has he improved his burst?
Thanks for the shout out Wally. I'm still around. Too much baiting nowadays to write anything more substantial and well thought out. Very happy with Dunks and our improvement at the moment. But keeping away from here has done wonders for my mental health.We miss you Mike, come back to us!
After the academy picks they ended up with pick 1 (Weitering), pick 10 (McKay) and pick 12 (Curnow). I don’t have any ITK contacts but it has been heavily insinuated that they rated Curnow above McKay but they must’ve had knowledge that Adelaide who had pick 11 wasn’t going to pick Curnow and selecting McKay first was the best way to ensure they got both.But seeing how he was there for Carltons 11 pick that we swapped to them, he would have been there for if we kept it. As Carlton people I have spoken to, said they would not have used that earlier pick on him.
Dunkley didn’t have an average 1st 4-5 games, he played role coaches asked (he’s a team player) then was moved into midfield (where he played very well the last 8 or so rounds last season) and is growing weekly.Macrae has done well in the CSM over the years. He came third very early in his career and has usually been in the top 5. Missed out by one vote last year because Hunter played more games.
The CSM rewards those who play more games because they award so many votes. That is, the top players tend to accumulate at least some votes every round.
At this stage I think Bont, Dunkley, Crozier and Macrae would be top 4. Don’t discount Hunter.
