From his u18 year . Wasn’t he basically a really good tagger that year ? Strange choice for No. 1 pick .



He definitely did some shut down jobs in the u/18’s. I think on ben ainsworth.

But Andy did have like high 30’s and BOG in the under 18s GF playing as a mid

Is it true that Robert Shaw recommend Dodoro to take Andy at pick 1 over Tarranto and Clug?

Shaw coached Andy and in his opinion thought Andy was number 1

Shawry was a scout for the club at the time.

But yes, he was pro drafting McGrath. Definitely. He was also his coach.

If he was a scout for the club then diffrent story

Fark don’t start some new stupid meme

Of course a coach is going to recommend one of his players to be drafted. Nothing more to it than that.

Cut me some slack didnt know Shaw was the clubs scout at time

Don’t see how it would make a difference if he was or wasn’t tbh.

People should just do with this McGrath draft, what I used to do with the 07 draft; pretend that we took Hooker at pick 6, and Myers at pick 54.

Therefore, Ridley was the number 1 pick, and we got McGrath at pick 22.


Hahaha I was actually having similar thoughts yesterday.
Ridley would be a pretty decent #1 pick

If Ridley was a #1 pick we’d be getting stuck into him too. Top pick but we have to hide as a 3rd defender won’t give him the big jobs. Only average if 19 possessions and can’t tackle. What a waste of a top pick.

We just like sticking it to everyone.


Trade to Gold Coast

We just have to accept we used Pick 1 on a better version of Kyle Hardingham who still hasn’t put on weight since his 2nd year


Where was Draper? still #1 Rookie ?

Begley’s or Mutch’s spot, your choice.

Begley was so damn good for that first 20 minutes though.
