How did boots ever dominate?
I never said he did (or any of the other speculative picks we made in the past). They were chosen because they had a couple of impressive highlights.

When Bootsma was drafted the word coming out of WA was that his team mates from Colts were shocked he was even being drafted, let alone in the first round (was really a mid second after the GWS picks).

There was a news story not long before the draft about him being a potential 'bolter' but the inference was that Fremantle might bite with one of their picks. It seems as though we took the bait.

He was a bolter because because we were all over him despite him only playing half a season of colts and that made a few other teams have a second look.

Freo passed on him at pick 16. From memory there was some talk of North as well but they passed on him at 18.

I wasn’t implying from you I meant in general, he didn’t show much in his time
