A lot of clubs have fully filled their lists and thus will not have a pick. Also if Nank was to go down we could pick a ruck. Safer to keep the pick.What pick would we have in the mid season draft, 18 ? Odds are slim we'd get a great choice with such a low pick and the good overagers would be gone you'd think. It will be interesting to see if we pick someone already training with us. When is the cut off for those kids ?
i thought jack dyer invented the drop punt???History photo for the day.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, visiting Melbourne in 1920, at right.
He attended the VFL Grand Final.
A sports fanatic, Doyle said Australian football was the most spectacular football code.
(Research article at Australian football encyclopaedia.)
Doyle was the pioneer of forensic crime fiction, creating Sherlock Holmes.
He also wrote The Lost World, the precursor to Jurassic Park, about the discovery of dinosaurs.
He enjoyed the drop punt, said it could be incorporated into rugby, he was proved correct.
His wife thought the free kick was a good rule because it penalised manhandling of the player.
They were hosted by Harrison at the VFL Grand Final, who reportedly introduced the bounce.

I bloody love a Round 1 debut, thinking back, the level of anticipation and excitement around these debuts, tied together with all of the optimism and hope of a clean slate and new season (more notably speaking about pre-2017), is just awesome.
a wise man once said beware of the ides of March
now that was over 2000 years ago
in the modern context , I think you can expand that to the month of Feb as well
its great we are cruising along and our injury toll is low
but things can unravel quickly when the season proper starts
McIntosh destroying Judd on debut in 15I bloody love a Round 1 debut, thinking back, the level of anticipation and excitement around these debuts, tied together with all of the optimism and hope of a clean slate and new season (more notably speaking about pre-2017), is just awesome.
2010: Martin, Nason, Roberts.
2011: Batchelor, Helbig, Conca.
2012: Ellis, Morris.
2013: None. Vlastuin was the first debutant of the year, in Round 5.
2014: None. Lloyd was the first, in Round 4.
2018: None. Higgins was the first, in Round 3.
2020: None. Aarts was the first, in Round 5.
A different criterion. Who could forget Ben Cousins... omg.
Very disappointing. Club is too focused on our AFLW team at the moment. Which team do the members pay up to watch?Still no highlights from the club intra club hitout .Very disappointing from the so called media department at the club .Adelaide had a full live stream of their intra club game .The premier's being shown up by the wooden spooners .Surely we could get a couple of minutes of highlights. Maybe they could show the kids from this year as well as the kids from last year who we haven't seen yet .
How's Will Martyn going or is Hugo a chance for round one .Biggies shoulder and Noah's knee going .There's plenty of stories there the fans would be interested in seeing .
