    Beg to differ. He created an entire rule!

    and genuinely how many players can say they are entirely responsible for a rule coming into existence.

    Pity the rule wasn't used by Scott Jeffrey the cheat.

    No idea, I bet Wilt Chamberlain would be responsible for one though...

    You might be confusing things. The Stilt created more kids than rules.

    Speaking of Grohan, White was also key to rule changes.

    I almost totally agree, except where there’s the possibility that some of these kids are practicing (from a young age) AFL skills. I’m sure there will be a competition here and there but from what I’ve heard, they’re adult expats.

    Quite a few have been successful but there’s been more success in them returning home and this is where an Aussie talent misses out.

    Yeah and I guess that's the hard part, differentiating those that have played AFL for most of their lives from those that just did a quarter-life code change. I just think it's called aussie rules not international rules for a reason. But of course the AFL is thinking about the $ and all that.

    Irish kids come in as a Cat B rookie if I recall.
    They may compete with a local academy talent for a spot on the Cat B list. They also may well have much more ‘natural talent’ than a lot of our academy kids (speed, leap, agility, endurance etc).

    It’s a bit of a free hit really as they won’t compete with the more credentialed kids that would go in the National or even standard rookie draft.

    Luckily plenty of the current Academy boys have enough ‘natural talent’ to justify drafting and enough of them are working bloody hard to make the most of that talent.

    My post wasn’t meant to be demeaning towards our academy kids....

    It’s just another talent pathway for us to look at, that’s all....

    Are you seriously suggesting the code restrict itself to Australian domiciled payers? On what rational basis? Given the right of people to come to this country to better their situation under the appropriate visa?????
