If he goes at #1 that's 600 extra points we have to find. A bid at pick #1 or pick #2 means we need to find an additional second round draft pick worth of points.
That sounds a whole lot better. I expect the AFL will still want to head that way in the slightly longer term though. The responsible way to do it is to foreshadow it at least 2 years out.Yeah, I replied to original article saying there’s no way any change can happen now for 2020 because clubs have already traded future picks. Sam replies saying they definitely can then said AFL gave out wrong info and corrected his article.
nah , let the kid play and hone those ball skills , what can go wrong!
Just imagine if JUH went Pick 1 and we were premiers. To be honest, if it were any other club, I'd be absolutely filthy. Sydney have been getting away with that crap for years (Heeney, Mills, Blakey) as has GWS.Imagine the melts when we win the premiership next year!
It already feels bad enough bidding on a player, they get matched, then you take someone else. That player will pretty much always be "the backup option". Probably why the bids always tend to come in later than they shouldNo one will ever bid on a player with Pick 1 even if they are the best player in the draft. Just imagine your team finishing bottom of the ladder, the only thing you have to look forward to is having access to an elite talent that will give you hope for the future - only
to nominate a player that will likely be matched and now you get pushed down just to take the next best and then try and sell that to your fans.
