Given this season is getting close to a write off I hope we are planning on using these picks as getting in early on some 19 year olds.
Preferably a ruck and a KPD.

Big watch on Milney's son who has been fairly handy for Sandy Zebs this year too. May be a handy Paton replacement?

Mid-season draft/trade is ridiculous and goes against the "Premiership Season".

Let's reward clubs with sh*t list management. The Premiership was awarded to a team enduring the marathon of an entire season, not a bunch of cheats starting the race at the halfway mark. Getting your cattle through the final gate because the club managed them properly, those were the days. But mediocrity FTW!

There's no point having list sizes of 40+ if clubs won't ever use the spare players they already have even in their most dire circumstances. If they can't coach and manage that then they're in the wrong business. They'll only use 30 players and top up as needed mid season, what a joke.

It seems that every premiership team cheats their way to the top these days.

Or give clubs who have been smashed by injury like GC in the ruck

Exactly, mismanagement. Do they only have three rucks on their list? Suck it up.

We had Marshall, Ryder, Alabakis, and still brought in Hunter and McKernan. Deal with it GC. We have caps on salary and list size, if they want to load up and benefit in other positions then that's the risk they take. This comp if bloody soft.

You do realise list sizes have been reduced as well? Teams with big injury lists are desperate to fill some list spots especially to help their second tier team.

It's only a problem when they can't field 23 players. That's why we have lists, to be able to field a team each match. Zero sympathy until they can't. As I said, if they want to load up on players in other positions at the cost of other positions then that's the risk they take. I would think that, like most leagues, if a team can't take to the field they forfeit that match. But I doubt the AFL will let that happen.

As far as other tiers go, spots are filled from the tiers below, not from an AFL mid season draft.

Kade Simpson wants to come out of retirement. Still fit and running he says.
Obviously would have a relationship with Ratts.
With gears and Paton out might be a good fit, I know he doesn’t do the hard stuff like those 2 but I always liked him. Reads the game well.

Really like the look of Cody Raak playing CHB for the Jets.

Only issue is he is only 192cm so not overly big for a key defender. Might end up being another 3rd tall type which is probably the last thing we need.

I believe Geelong were keen but lost interest as he was only 36 too young for their list demographic.

He probably played with Ratts. He's about 300 yard old. He'd need a mobility scooter to get to his opponent.

So if a player is staring in another comp he has to wait. How does it actually hurt having a mid season draft? It doesn’t. It’s a very good idea. I’d probably even have trades between clubs so more players get to play afl. After all isn’t that what it is about.
