    Big Footy you disappoint me. Why no winners and losers of the first round comments?

    Winners: no-one because Hawthorn hasn’t drafted.

    Losers: everyone but Hawthorn

    Am I doing this right?

    Well Carlton just did the worst trade of all time, an absolute balls up. The Crows list management group will get a parade through the city after securing Carlton's 1st next year for bugger all. The Crows will bounce back to top 4-6 next year and it would've cost them **** all for a top 4 pick next year. Absolutely mindblowingly stupid trade from Carlton.

    I think we can all agree Richmond won the draft.

    Just a question. What if Carlton finish last next year and crows win the flag. Carlton get pick 18 and crows get pick 1. Really bad trade yeah?

    But then what happens if Stocker ends up playing in a flag(s) for Carlton? Is the trade a success?

    More to the trade than what happens next year.

    Considering you can read the future, mind telling me the winning lotto numbers for next week?

    All it takes is Carlton to finish say 14th, and Adelaide to finish 8th and suddenly it’s a very shrewd trade on Carlton’s behalf. High risk, but also high reward if it pays off. Especially if Stocker is as good as they think he is.

    So did the 1st round largely follow draft geeks predictions?

    Yeah na.

    The Hawks won the draft even though we did not bother to turn up.

    Well that is sort of normal for Hawthorn. The last 2 or 3 years you have had pretty awful draft picks as a result of aggressive trading.

    Yep.

    Although we picked up a gem last year in Worpol with a pick in the 40s

    I am still not sold on Worpel, as while he is very good at finding the ball he has some huge issues when trying to use it. Still, no one can expect perfection straight up from a pick in the 40's and there is a good chance Hawthorn will be able to clean up his disposal and improve his decision making.

    Actually his ball use was first class last year in every game he played.

    Clarko anD his team have already fixed it.

    Just checked and in the first final he had 17 disposals and 6 turnovers, and in the semi-final he had 9 disposals and 5 of them were turnovers.

    I admit though he had a solid game against Carlton in round 18, and his game against the Swans in round 23 was pretty good too, but his finals performances were, well when the pressure went up his disposal and decision making did not meet the standard.

    If any shit nba team did a trade like this with a finalist from a year ago who had a bad/off year they would be getting slaughtered on all the nba talk shows from right now until next draft.

    That’s how shit this trade was.

    It would be like giving up on the chance to get Zion a potential LeBron level talent for two role players.

    I feel sorry for Gold Coast. AFL are not supporting them properly.

    GWS has done the best of any team from my perspective - particularly given only one pick was an academy selection.

    Different games. One player in the NBA can be built around and take you to the playoffs where 1 player in the AFL doesn’t come close to having the impact.

    Kid hit a wall. Still think his biggest issue is fitness rather than his disposal.

    Solve that first and he won't be so gassed everytime he gets the ball.

    You have a point but they can’t stay down the bottom forever. Good on them for backing themselves in

    Yes, definitely good on Carlton for deciding to back themselves in. I’m glad we could be of assistance

    One of those situations where it probably doesn’t pay to be cocky too early.
