Whos this Sam Lowson fella? Cant read the article but headline reckons small forward from Coburg Blues and Roos desperate to get him in mid season draft. Now i dont know how he plays but a small forward and we arent mentioned in headline seeing as we have pick 1 right now and have no small forwards.. hows it work? Can teams trade up in mid season draft by trading picks in normal draft?
Yes I believe we had a serious look at him. My understanding is that we have kept a close eye on him on this year and wouldnt be surprised if we are one of the clubs that have asked him to do a medical.
I'm old and am drinking with pricks so will have a go. The consensus is that mid season moves were pre-AFL, so 80s. Didn't involve a draft. Just that the rules (or absence of rules preventing this) meant that clubs could agree to moving a player mid season.
