Does this perhaps point to Edwards deciding not to nominate for the msd?
Nah, he's just locked into school footy because let's just say there's a reason why he's in a private school.Does this perhaps point to Edwards deciding not to nominate for the msd?

ACADEMY PROSPECTS TO RECEIVE EXTRA CERTAINTY
CLUBS have been told they will regain the rights to Academy-tied over-age prospects in this season's NAB AFL Draft, should they not be recruited to a rival team during the upcoming Mid-Season Rookie Draft.
It leaves a host of draft hopefuls with an added layer of certainty ahead of both the mid-season and national drafts, with clubs set to regain their ability to win first access to overage Academy-tied players should they not land a spot on a rival club's rookie list throughout the year.
Previously in 2019 when the Mid-Season Rookie Draft was reintroduced, overage prospects still involved in either Northern Academy or NGA programs could not nominate for the mid-season draft unless they cut all Academy ties.
That means the likes of Driscoll and Raak, among others, can this year elect to nominate for the Mid-Season Rookie Draft, where they could be recruited to any AFL club across the country, and still remain Academy-tied for November's NAB AFL Draft.

Secondary markets are a reality and a necessity for a fair chunk of the league. We haven't done Hobart perfectly - going from 3 games to 4 was a particularly egregious stuff-up - but we've done it better than the things we tried before and better than a few other clubs now.
Is this lazy journalism or just me? Yes he was/is an NGA for the dogs but with their ladder position he is as much anyone else’s as he is theirs. Don’t really see the point joining the dots with the dogs any more to the extent they did, he is going to one of the bottom 4 teams
