    What if...we had of won the premiership in 2012? How would it have been viewed once the Tippet draft tampering become public knowledge?

    It would have depended on the role Tippett played in the GF, I reckon.

    Also, if we won the 2012 flag, Sando would still be coaching.

    personally I reckon the AFL knew already (much like the Essendon scandal) and rigged the prelim to avoid that can of worms altogether.

    only way to explain the frankly disgusting umpiring in that game, and fits the AFL's puppet master MO perfectly.

    Imagine our team with the two first and second round picks we lost, plus the top 10 pick Tippett was worth, together with Danger and Gunston staying.

    We'd be in a better position, but you'd have to factor in we wouldn't have Milera, Menzel, Jenkins or Ellis-Yolmen.

    We'd likely have Patrick Cripps and another really good first round player plus Dangerfield and Gunston though.

    Yeah the AFL rigged it so that Shaun Burgoyne would dominate the last quarter and Paddy to fail to see Sloaney for the easy handball and at the end.

    Dam you AFL...

    I know a lot will be against this But my what if is Graham Cornes coaching 2 more games,
    that would have netted us, Chad and Kane, and possibly 2 more grand finals.
    Closely followed By adding Cripps to our current line out lost from the Tippert fallout

    Is this tounge in cheek? Those two groups of players aren't comparable.

    He was exceptional in the prelim so there was no way we would have made the GF without him. I think a lot of people would have put an asterisk next to our name and it would end up being a pretty ugly smudge on the clubs history - even more so that it already is.

    we are backs to the wall until Cripps retires, that's how long the sanctions hurt you.

    Think it was rumoured that we'd take Tim O'Brien with that 2012 1st. If we take TOB, we don't take Atkins, as he was our final pick in that draft.

    If the trade was 8 (let's say we draft Devon Smith) and Polec for Tippett (as Stiffy said), our team would probably look like this:

    B: Brown, Talia, Lever
    HB: Cheney, Hartigan, Laird
    C: Polec, Sloane, Cameron
    HF: Lynch, Walker, Smith
    F: Betts, Gunston, McGovern
    R: Jacobs, Dangerfield, Cripps
    I/C: Brouch, Mrouch, Knight, Douglas

    The worst, the absolute worst was that dog Franklin putting Rutten in a headlock and getting a free kick for it ******* pathetic umpiring.

    The AFL could've very well stripped us off the flag.
