    Something stinks in this state. Somehow SA sporting talent is drying up along with the economy.

    Did lol when Titus O'Reilly quipped that 'South Australia doesn't have an economy anymore, now that the quince paste boom is over.'

    Look at how SA has gone in the last five years of National Champs. The issue is we havent been producing KPPs or those 6"6 mids that everyone is gaga over. Nearly every SA squad is full of 5 foot 8 mids and flankers.

    All the tall people have headed interstate and those left behind have been breeding shorties, perhaps? :p

    When will he be up and going full tilt for preseason? Recovering from his broken leg still?

    deaneus care to add another t to his first name in the title? The club confirmed this afternoon that it is actually spelled Eliott.

    These were yours in the who will we draft thread:
    Pick 13: Gallucci
    Pick 43: Scharenberg
    Pick 53: Lipinski
    Pick 66: Poholke
    Pick 82: Jarman

    Congrats on getting 2 of the 5 and picking our 13.

    I know nothing about these kids, but it seems our recruiting team has nailed it with all having the possibility of an AFL career. Good that Ogilvy is a former BF poster. He gained his astute knowledge from hanging out here. ;)

    “Elliott is a good kick for goal and has real aggression when he crunches and spoils the packs. He can play at both ends and if he keeps on growing, he might be able to pinch hit in the ruck. We have really high hopes for him and might go somewhere from the mid-20s.”

    yeah baby

    It would stun me if he doesn't end up at least a chop in ruck. Anybody with a shred of athleticism at what'll probably be over 200cm should surely be able to at least be a C grade stand in...

    *Need to mention that I am indeed very happy with this lick. Didn't think he'd last until 43 let alone 50+

    I believe so, but perhaps it was just another BF rumour.
