    Which TSL players do you think could make the grade in the big league??..

    Who do you think should have been given a crack, but never got the chance??..

    Thats what I have created this thread for..

    Gary Shipton would have to be one which I think could have an impact in the AFL, but at 29, I think he has missed the boat.. There are probably better players out there, but to perform with the consistancy as he has during his career speaks volumes for the "what if's"..

    Who are your picks and what are your thoughts??..

    What about Jaye Bowden? He has such good skills and is a true athlete.
    If he got drafted to the AFL 3 years ago when he should have, he would be a big young player coming through the AFL today!

    Jeremy Howe makes his debut this week, another tick for the TSL as a stepping stone to the AFL. Webberley amongst Coburg's best every week, too.

    Should also be interesting to see how the Mariners go Vs Vic on the weekend. One of the better sides in years, apparently.

    Massive step between this league and the big time and making it at AFL Level requires a fair bit more than playing consistently at this level which is by the way, nowhere near the Old Statewide league

    How so moocher? Always tough comparing eras. I'm not necessarily disagreeing, however, I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

    Rhys Mott must surely be a chance still young enough and has been in reasonable form before the bye

    Did Dogga grab Murph from the Wynyard reserves to play Devils or was that Cresswell ?

    Rohan Baldock would get picked up this year if he could straighten his kicking out. Has had twice as many shots on goal as Finch playing in a side no where near as strong.

    Wouldn't have thought so. Getting drafted is no easy feat. What position would he play at AFL level? HFF? Don't think so... Jeremy Howe is taller, more explosive and athletic than Baldy and you would classify those two in a similar category (position wise).

    Murphy was different and had a bit of front and Dogga didn't like it. Players have different characteristics. They should be selected on football ability. If so Murph should of got a game.

    Rohan Baldock has as much chance of getting drafted as James "The KFC King" Wiggins does.

    No way, Murph is an outstanding player and his suspension last year was absolute crap.Was interesting at the time thats all.He covers a massive amount of ground and racks them up, a great exponent of playing behind the ball, would have him in my side every day of the week, dont know about his ability on a construction site though :thumbsu:

    I tell ya what, a league club could do worse then rookie list Baldock.He is young enough and a superb contested mark as well as being quick at ground level.His kicking has improved and will only get better.He is a better player than Jarrod Garth and Todd Grima who both got rookied as forwards from the Mariners to Geelong and how well would he go at a better level-very.He is a footy head and sucks everything in to learn and better himself.Certainly going well thus far this year and good on him as it would have been easy to go back to Wynyard,Somerset or South Burnie bit did not want to be a big fish in a small pond.Kicked 4 for both the NTFL combined side and the Tas Under 23 ,s last year so he can go the next level, would have to give up 8 ball and his membership at Greens but :)

    Goodluck getting him away from Greens Hotel VIP membership and red carpet rolled out for him every week, if Jeremy Howe made it no reason Buckets cant make it beautiful contested mark, needs Laycock to stop giving him goalkicking tips and he would kick more than 4 a week

    Howe has explosive pace, being more athletic and taller than Baldock. Not sure whether he has the work rate and running capacity either. What position could he play at AFL? Half forward flank? Imagine back flankers running off him...

    Having said this, Baldy has plenty of footy to play, but AFL is a little unrealistic. How old is Baldy anyway? 20? Jackson O'brien would have to be the best 20 year old getting around - by a long way! Or am I missing anyone of note?
