I think the Stewie Dew and the Suns should sound out Melbourne about Bens availability.If he can’t break into Melbourne’s side surely another club will chase his services especially seeing he’d cost very little at the trade table.
Would he consider going back to North?
I love it when it backfires on players. It’s rare but they’ve got too much power 99% of the time
Not interesting to me that every club basically got their pick of academy kids for years and the year we get one we can't even get it. Meanwhile the dogs are getting back to back number 1 picksI find it interesting because he is likely to be the first NGA player picked too early to be available to his club. I thought Melbourne supporters might find it even more interesting.

Yah I wouldn't normally complain either cause it's just luck but shit it hurts when the team on top of the ladder is getting back to back number 1 picks. Talk about luck.Adelaide bidding at #1 f’ed it for everyone moving forward, including themselves. If he goes pick 2 or beyond, there's no outrage and the system likely stays as it is and you get Andrews.
I still staggered the clubs didn't ask to be able to keep recruiting until they hit the points of the most successful clubs. That North, Bulldogs, Collingwood got top 10 picks and the rest got scraps or nothing could have been rectified by each club having a permanent "total" points pool. Once that was exceeded, you couldn't access the top end of the draft. But until that point, everyone would get someone.Not interesting to me that every club basically got their pick of academy kids for years and the year we get one we can't even get it.

No. There is no reason to believe over time the F/S shouldn't be fair, and its an integral part of the game.
Plenty of other codes don't have drafts though, which makes it pretty much irrelevant. And plenty of sports which are country specific the players follow in their parent's footsteps.There is plenty of reason why over time it won't be fair, namely the example right now where timing means a club receives one of the best talents when they just don't need it.
It also means that clubs with much deeper pockets can invest into the development of youngsters from a very very very young age which is also gross. Privilege breeding privilege.
The father son is not an integral part of the game. It's a romantic notion linked to a game from years gone by that was amateur. No other professional code has anything like it in the world and for good reason.
