    I don't think Membrey was necessarily homesick. I think it was more wanting opportunity to play first team football. I don't think he is a player that should necessarily be used in a discussion about drafting interstate players. I would dare say, if he was playing AFL, he would have stayed. Moving clubs for an opportunity that you would not otherwise get, I think is the best reason for a player to seek a trade

    I agree.. and without rehashing the whole thing that is actually one of the points I was trying to make. neafl is a long way off AFL level, to counteract that I think we should be giving our less experienced players more opportunities, more games than we have. Year after year we are in the bottom rungs of amount of players used in the season, impacting our depth.

    NEAFL can't be that bad, we lost to a few non-AFL affiliated sides and the 3 AFL affiliates also provide strong competition.

    It started out quite bad, but year on year it is getting better. With the reduction in size, only one Canberra based team (that will get most of the quality) and the improvement in teams like aspley/NT it is on an upward trajectory.

    It was NE error going to start out the strongest league, but with the academy, players in the NEAFL realise they can now get drafted, I actually like where it is going.

    I am a little worried by the cost of travel, for the NEAFL clubs as that has been one of the major issues.

    Yes I especially rate his ability to have spotted the father sons in Ablett & Scarlett.

    His recruiting is a lot better than his trading

    You've got to give him credit.
    He traded a crackhead for a 2nd rounder, which he traded for a packet chips which he then traded for a 2nd rounder.

    I wonder how the Swans would play if they ran out onto the field and all 22 players were high on meth. I imagine the teams aggression would increase.

    By that definition we wouldn't have any crackheads because Horse coaches it out of them. :)
