Those irresponsible people in Vic not quarantining when required will cUse the season to be cancelled, and in will come the lottery.

Pick 19 - Adelaide
We will find out Monday or Tuesday if covid off and running in queen'sland. If it is, no hub in queen'sland and nsw not far away.

They won’t deny a 0-17 team pick 1.
The optics of us currently not even sanfl standard would be very worrying to the AFL. If anything they will ensure we not only receive pick 1 but also pick 2 for Crouch. We are currently helping to devalue the whole comp. The AFL may be clueless at times but they value money especially during a pandemic. I can guarantee you they would be looking at the clueless fools running our club and looking at ways to force them out very soon.

Yep, would think the AFL would be very concerned, especially from a club that traditionally fills stadiums and has a waitlist for its 11 game members.

To punish you for North Melbourne tanking?
Norf tanking by dropping Polec and Brown

Adelaide "hold my beer".


Draft lottery is a genuine concern. No TAC Cup and the AFL need an event to appease the broadcasters.

Obviously an investigation into the camp will lead to us being stripped of the next 2 years worth of draft picks

They won’t deny us, well forfeit the pick as we will back our own structure to get the job done without pick 1

If we lose all our remaining games which seems likely we should ask for a priority pick. We are going to suck as much next season if we retain the same coaching and off-field structure.

Could see the AFL investigate us for tanking if we don't win a game all season.

The AFL themselves get investigated over the camp which finds they acted poorly. From there we get stung with "bringing the game into disrepute" to make it clear it was us and not them that was at fault.

We’ll pick swap our first for 2 around 10-18 and chose a ruck that can’t jump and a 170 cm mid with 3.2Sec 20m sprint.
both come from nice families in Tasmania.

Amongst the club's worst supporters are the weird paranoid conspiracy theorists that want pick one more than the next premiership.
.. this is the dumbest post I've read on this forum in a quite a while.

We want pick #1 BECAUASE it will help get us the next premiership.

It's not like we've got a choice between the two this year.

Ah yes but you forget our negotiating powers. We will negotiate it by offering our own sanctions. That way we go from 2 years of draft sanctions to 4 years, on the understanding that we will also re-hire Burton because we think he was harshly dealt with and everyone makes mistakes. Don't forget that Burton is going to be known as an exceptional Head of Footy once it is all finished.

We will be allocated Pick #1, but it will be a restricted pick that must be used on a mature age player no younger than 31 years who has not been on an AFL list for at least 5 years, or it can be traded as an unrestricted pick to any expansion or Vic club.

I think it's more along the lines of a Vic team getting some kind of salary cap / draft concession to bring the player home after the first contract.
