    It's true that Asian kids usually play soccer but that's more a parental thing, the not wanting their kids hurt factor.

    I'm half Asian and my dad frowned on me playing Aussie rules, preferring soccer. I sucked anyway but played soccer fairly well so it all worked out lol...

    I won't put my boy through that though and if he wants to play our game I'm all for it. He's got the Bruce Lee genetic mix going (one quarter German) so hopefully he'll be similarly athlethic. Born in the year of the dragon too!

    On Lin Jong, I've been introduced to him a couple of times at weddings I attended with my ex partner as they're of the same Chinese community from East Timor... Solid unit up close! I'm only 175 though so all AFL players are impressive units to me.

    Needless to say if my boy shows any proficiency I'll move to Kew lol. Knowing the AFL however this Academy business will probably be gone by then. Who knows what the game will look like in 15 years..? Too much reactionary decision making.

    No, he played too much senior football so was ineligible.

    The guy with the guns is an overage player, NT is allowed to have a few. He suffered a broken collarbone in the 3rd quarter, pretty bad apparently.

    Does that affect our ability to sign him down the track if we want to?

    I doubt it because he was already in an AFL system. Alot of indigenous kids live or board in Darwin from communities obviously for education and sport purposes. Tiwi kids have been doing it for decades because topographically they are so close to Darwin. It is one of the main reasons Tiwi island football is so well developed and known.

    Couldn't sign NSW scholarship players before they turned 15 from memory and Witts was signed as soon as he reached that age.

    Any team can grab kids from alternate sports as Cat B rookies.
