I think Blues played a blinder, they rated him above everyone taken after their pick and still got their man.Kemp ahead of Day but gold coast, us, the dogs the cats the power didn't rate him enough to pick him. Heck even the Blues who could have kept pick 9 and taken him there didn't rate him to the point they could trade that out. I don't go out and see them play but I reckon clubs are weary now about taking injured players high in a draft. They haven't played at AFL level yet and they have to overcome a severe injury on top of the riggers of AFL football. We got burned with Dowler and Muston. Maybe we would have taken Kemp if his first name was Beau? Or maybe we think Day was going to be a gun.
Who knows whether the other teams between us and the Blues rated Kemp above Day or not, it doesn't matter because they never got the chance.
