I’m now convinced that Suns will (and should) take Lukosius and Rozee as picks 2 & 3 and Caldwell at 6 in the upcoming draft. I know many would like Rankine before Rozee, but from the bits you hear about him, he would be the biggest flight risk. Plus Lukosius & Rozee have been best mates since they were 12, so they would help settle each other in under the guidance of Shaun Hart.

Does anybody out there know what are the best days, times and locations to watch the guys at pre season practice? I'd like to check out the newbies as soon as we know who they are all going to be. Looking forward (weirdly) to 2019.

I'm sure the main session was always on a Thursday, not sure if that will have changed... but they did post that training video on Friday this time

i want to ask them two questions why do we kick backwards and why don't we kick more instead of handballing:think:
Ha ha make sure you tell everyone what section you sit in and what a legend you are in that section and please please please share with everyone who you went for before the Suns came along.
It’s imperstive you waste at least a minute of everyone’s lives before asking that question

Can they flash this on a PowerPoint for the crowd before the Q&A part of the night begins

Is there anything wrong when you take a mark with just standing holding up play and having a good look and if nothings on just barrelling a 60 yard(sic) torp?
This play on at all costs thing is just mad
I used to support Richmond before the Suns and Jim Jess would often pose for photos after a top grab before kicking it

If we could win one on ones then it’s not the worst option. Just trip it from the back wing up towards the 50. Problem is got to be so quick to defend if it turns over.

A couple of things. There's that stupid rule about getting too close to the marking player, so why not get mids with a close tag to run into that zone and draw their man in a 50m penalty? I used to follow the Bears, but they were hot garbage, so in finals I'd go for Hawthorn because of Jason Dunstall. Gary Buckenara only did one good thing, while Jim Stynes only did won bad thing. Hell of a game but! If Dunstall hadn't have been so selfless and dished off so many passes to players in better position, he'd have kicked 1500 goals. But Hawthorn probably wouldn't have won so many premierships.

So, what do you all think is going to happen in the next 5 days? I have some thoughts-

1. Nothing. Suns pick in their assigned order and no shenanigans. Even the Rookie Draft is predictable with 4 returning players, a free agent and an Academy Player

2. Everything. Pick trades before the Draft, live pick trades, players dramatically not re-rookied. Take your pick because it's 8 terrible choices and everybody hates the world.

3. Riots. Pick #2 gets traded to the Crows and the city burns. Memberships get microwaved, the merch shops get inundated with returns and the Suns have 6 picks inside #21. Crows trade future for Lukosius.

OUT - #2, #24, #29
IN - #8, #13, #16, #21

4. The Bromance. Pick #3 gets traded to Port and Suns fans get Lukosius and Rozee anyway.

OUT - #3, #29
IN - #5, #10

5. Trading back. Suns go back from #6 in a watered down version of option 3. Still select 4 South Australian kids

OUT - #6, #29
IN - #8, #16

6. The Side-Deal. Unhappy to cave into the Tigers so easily over Lynch, the Suns trigger a live trade agreement to go up and get Richmond's pick #17 in order to snag Jez McLennan.

OUT - #24, #29
IN - #17, #64

Its a 1. for me. Suns management wont have the balls to move they’re top picks.
Incase another Clayton Oliver bites us.

I personally think 4.
Would be best for the club long term.
And end up with same player as pick 5.

Pretty sure I read somewhere the current picks are now locked in since the 16/11/18 until the draft under AFL rules. No swapping of picks allowed now until draft night.
