"Recruit of the Year" rules and guidelines:.

1. This isn't simply the best player who moves clubs;
2. Must have played AFL footy at another club prior to 2021;
3. Adjusted to account for what was given up in terms of Salary Cap space, Players or Draft Picks;
4. Adjusted for importance to new team or position change etc.

Currently Tom Hickey. Should be AA ruck right now.

I think come end of finals all of Cameron, Aliir, Daniher have a big shout to win it for their teams though. Brown maybe if he wins a final off his own boot.

If you win your team a flag Ala Tom Boyd, it does not matter the salary cap or trade price paid.

Exactly. I couldnt imagine any Dogs fan being upset over Boyd. Or the way Griffen left.

Obviously a thread started by a swan’s fan because it is obviously Hickey, especially with those parameters.

Almost literal journeyman at age 30 all of a sudden averages 12 contested possessions a game and is number 1 ruck in the comp for centre clearances and scores from stoppages…and we’re talking about Hickey??? okay…

he is a genuine ruck, so I don’t know what happens when Naismith comes back this week as neither of them is really a ruck/forward hybrid.

weird turn of events. Seems like a good bloke

Aliir has killed it so far this year.

Always thought he was a bit overrated and even a liability at times at Sydney, but he’s slotted in seamlessly and should be in line for an AA guernsey.

Stoked we picked up Hind for a packet or crisps, has far exceeded what most Essendon players would have expected already
