It's gonna be a weird game against the dons with Adelaide players playing for Essendon

I don’t know the list changes yet but if they follow through as expected, round 1 team could be very different and very exciting.

Some big changes in store.

If we remove Greenwood, Jenkins, Betts, Knight, Gibbs, MacKay, Hartigan, Betts, Otten, Douglas and possibly Keath, my team would look like this

B: Brown ~ Talia ~ Laird
HB: Doedee ~ Butts ~ Milera
C: Jones ~ B Crouch ~ R Sloane
HF: Lynch ~ Fogarty ~ McAdam
F: Stengel ~ Walker ~ McHenry

Ruck: O’Brien ~ M Crouch ~ Gallucci

Interchange: Kelly ~ Hamill ~ Sholl ~ Himelberg

However, with a number of trades and draft picks coming into the side, especially with pick 3, we could have a number of changes.

We definitely need to recruit a tall defender if we trade both Hartigan and Keath to help Doedee and Talia.

I've seen enough of Will Gould to be certain that he will be an AFL star. Question is, how do we get him? In phantom drafts, I've seen him placed anywhere from 5 to 17. Seems to me we need another pick in the top-12 or thereabouts.

Don’t rate Smith or Sleevesman?

Damm, Smith yes. Wife was dragging me out the house and just forgot about him.

Seeds not really.
BigFooty post accuracy should really be a priority, mate.

Seeds played some shockers this year but his best is still bloody good. Seemed like he was never fully fit after his knee injury.

Hopefully he’s back to his best in 2020. We’ll need it!

Is this a parody?

My favourite part is the 4 tall forward line.

  • Assuming Francis comes in. Can he play CHB? Same height as Walker and Fogarty, only 1cm shorter than Hartigan.
  • Plenty of change in the forward line relative to R1 2019. McAdam and McHenry have really impressed me recently. Hoping we get a deal done for Lukosius (pick 3 + change?), with a view to him immediately slotting into the Lynch role, and in the long term phasing him in to CHF as Walker winds down.
  • Some assumptions about what happens with Greenwood and Gibbs in the off season. Suspect we’ll come to an agreement with the former, and would struggle to find suitors for the latter even if we did want to trade him.

I've only got 14 locks for round one. I'm not assuming any trade/draft period ins or outs, at this stage. The eight vacant positions will be determined by pre-season form.

B - Doedee, Talia, Kelly
HB - Laird, ???, Smith
C - Milera, M. Crouch, Jones
HF - Lynch, Walker, McHenry
F - ???, Fogarty, ???
R - ???, Sloane, B. Crouch
I - ???, ???, ???, ???

The Contenders
Key Forwards/2nd Rucks - Jenkins, Himmelberg
Small Forwards - Betts, Murphy, Stengle, McAdam, Davis (small fwd/mid)
Mids - Gibbs, Atkins, Seedsman, Poholke, Gallucci (mid/small fwd), Wilson
Rucks - O'Brien^
Key Defenders - Hartigan, Butts
Small Defenders - Brown^, McPherson, Sholl, Hamill

^Not having Brown and O'Brien as locks may seem controversial, but I'm not as enamoured by these two as most.

Non-Contenders (Uncontracted at this stage)
Keath*, Greenwood, Ellis-Yolmen, Knight, Hunter, Strachan, Mackay, Jacobs

*If re-contracted, Keath would slot into CHB, making it 15 locks.

With what we have now:

B: Brown - Talia - Doedee
HB: Smith - Butts (Hartigan platooned) - Laird
C: Jones - B.Crouch - Seedsman
HF: Gallucci - Tex/Lynch - Fogarty
F: Stengle/Murphy - Himmelberg - McHenry
R: O'Brien - Milera - M.Crouch
INT: Sloane - McAdam - Scholl - Kelly

I'd be very open to getting rid of one of Tex/Lynch this offseason on top of everything else. Really set it up so Himmelberg, and Fogarty are getting 22 games per season without any potential roadblocks.
Rest is pretty self-explanatory and no doubt I've forgotten someone.

We can’t go into another year with all of Talia (love him though I do), Brown, Hartigan and Kelly in the same side.

We desperately need to upgrade Hartigan in our XXII, which is what worries me about trading out Keath.

Agree re Hartigan: I’m still hopeful we may trade in Francis.

Don’t think Butts or Hamill will quite be ready - never know
