Not sure about applauding but we are likely to bid pick 1 because we believe he is the best player.
I think he underestimates the marketing value of Pick 1 to the Crows as a club.
They've predominantly been smaller players though who don't seem to have as hard of a time having an impact early. Even Weitering as a defender has the advantage of the ball coming towards him as well as cheap kicks in defence that helped him get into the game.There is 0 good reason to bid at 1 as Dogs can still trade to get in the points to cover the rest. Even if JUH is worth pick 1 it's not going be a disadvantage. Besides look at the last few pick 1s who all ended up rising star winners or could of been rising star winners. The stigmata and pressure of pick 1 on a kid has become a non-issue.
I don’t think the critical Adelaide media will give two sh*ts if the player you guys select is at #2. If he struggles there is no way he will get any leeway. And nor should he. It won’t make any difference at all if he’s pick 1 or 2.And Jamarra will have the dreaded pick 1 badge and all the sh*t that goes with it if he doesn't live up to his pick 1 ranking.
Yeah the bleeding from the hands, feet and eyes is tough on the number one picksThere is 0 good reason to bid at 1 as Dogs can still trade to get in the points to cover the rest.

I think the exact opposite. It’s an anomaly that won’t happen again, no real point in Adelaide making a stand about it. All clubs know that the likes of JUH, Taryn Thomas, Quaynor etc has been a dum situation.My feeling is he is going to get bid on 1.
Reason Last year of NGA academy top 20. Adelaide will definitely make it a memorable one after not getting Crouch combo pick 2.
Correct. But the top 2-5 still get $5k, and I'm sure there's other ways the players can be "remunerated".
A bid at pick 1 only results in an 81 point deficit - it doesn't effect our 2021 round 1 unless it falls in the teens, and even then it's only one spot.Dogs don't need that much more points. Just trade like 41 and 42 or even 42 and 54 for something earlier. Dogs have been trading futures anyway.
Who cares, that's peanuts compared to making a statement to the VFL. If we bid on JUH, we still get the same player at pick 2.
You would think it will have a big boost. Memberships would've dropped if we rolled over for Dunkley. I can just see itI look forward to how easy our membership sell will be next year.
A finals team that picked up Treloar and the best kid in the draft post-season.
