Some things are not supposed to be veganised and I've found that kebabs are one of them. Another being 'facon'.

Besides, is there anything better after consuming about 15 pints combined than salty Maccas chips?

you are kidding, right?
Was looking at the most career games list and I still can't believe that Brent Harvey got delisted after 2016. Literally kicked an equal career high in goals and then was let go because he didn't tackle enough...

Game 430 against us he has 32 posessions and 3 goals. It wasn't worth extending that form apparently.
He is still fit as anyone in the league.

Fancy being in a shout with 47 other people!!
Knowing European Football, likely a club paid beer hall so freeeeeee beer.

Went to a Stuttgart game in the Bundesliga late 2012 and sat next to someone who spent time in Adelaide so they picked up where I was from, gave me access to the fan beer hall and was still drinking into the next morning.

Being unfamiliar with any of that how does this fan beer hall work? Not in the stadium I assume, who ends up paying for the brew and all the overhead?

For the game in Stuttgart that I attended it was a hall in the stadium set aside for members of the club's Cannstatter Kurve supporter group and is paid for by the club as a reward for the effort, they put into supporting the club. Its a match day only thing.

Q. Where would I find a breakdown of drafted players over the last 20 years, without being specific to a particular club?

I'm trying to find out how long they play for (ie 10% 0 Games/ 20% 1-50 games / etc), and which is the most successful group (so over time, are picks 10-20 more successful than 1-10?)?

Is there a site you would recommend?

Had a little look as well and found out that Tristan Xerri is the only player out of the nearly 15,000 players that have been drafted whose last name started with X

Nice trivia there.
My favourite draft question is who is the only player drafted in the top 10 twice?

That's a great question, I assume you mean in the top 10 of the National Draft twice (not PSD etc)? I can't think of anyone, its so rare to be drafted twice, Luke Ball was a high profile one.

I can't think of the answer without checking the research room
