    I see them as very different. Ape would replace Griff or Sandi from today's game IMO, not Kerstin. We'd be way too top heavy with Ape, Griff, Sandi and Darcy all in the same team

    For mine Apeness although big is a better "smaller" player than Taberner. He brings tackling pressure that Taberner doesn't. He is also a more reliable mark. Apeness is also in more form.

    Agreed that Griffin, Darcy, Apeness is too many talls in a real game, but so it is the same with Taberner for Apeness. Once we get to the seaspn proper Darcy and Griffin go to Peel.

    Taberner was our leading contested mark last year and for a guy his size is very good at ground level and is an extremely good kick.

    In no way is Apeness better than him as a forward. Apeness has had about 6 touches at AFL level in 4 games. He is a ruckman/forward who needs to learn to ruck before he is a look in for best 22.

    Not a fan of Tab , but I think Tab is a proper replacement for kersten. when tab is confident he mark everything , I honestly don't think last week problem is Tab but midfield intensity.

    I'll get it going.

    Why the **** did we spend our earliest draft pick in years on a bloke the coach doesn't even think can play footy yet?

    The comments from Lyon in that article really ground my gears.

    Because you use high picks on the guys you think have the greatest potential, not on who you think is most ready-made. This is especially true of a rebuilding side. Not a hard concept to grasp surely

    Who gives a shit if he isn't playing now. He'll most likely have a 10+ year career with us if he is half as good as we hope, so if Ross doesn't think he is ready then who are we to argue.

    What do rebuilding sides typically do? Tweak the existing game plan with 25-30 year olds including the likes of Nick Suban? OR do they inject what youth they have to see who has what it takes and hope they learn something even if they fail?

    What do we lose by playing our round 1 draft pick in a preseason game (apart from an invaluable learning experience for the player)?

    Has Lyon ever been surprised to the upside in his life? I doubt it as he simply does not take the risk. EVEN in the preseason with talent the likes of Logue.

    My mate who played for east Freo, and is still involved with them, doesn't rate logue that highly, reckons we should have got English, really hope he is wrong.

    Recruiter for St Kilda rated English at 1 for the draft. Let's hope Logue can learn to play footy, and fast!

    For all we know opinions were divided as to whom we should take with pick 8. The one thing we know for certain is that Ross was ecstatic when Sean Darcy's name was called.

    I really wanted Will Brodie.

    Will back in our recruiters though, they've done well recently.

    A Pearce, Weller, Blakely, Langdon, Tucker all look the goods from the previous 3 drafts. Apeness and Balic to be determined.

    They have done a pretty good job of hosing down expectations around Logue which will reduce the pressure on him brought about by the apparent readiness of his body for AFL footy. Makes the coverage he gets from the media and supporters a lot more realistic.

    Interesting though the club extended his contract a couple of months ago. I know they often do for young interstate players near the end of their first year or so but for a local boy before he had hardly been at the club for 5 minutes was an eyebrow raiser. To me it meant that they must rate him very highly indeed.

    Yeah, Brodie looks like becoming an absolute gun. If only we could draft them all.
