#101

Early picks in this draft are no guarantee.


#102

So Rayner was parked in a FP the whole game?


#103

No engine.


#104

Decisions, decisions!

It’s kinda nice this draft is going to be unpredictable. Everyone drafting in the top 5 may end up getting their first choice


#105

Will the draft start early due to the unpredictability?
With Brisbane and Freo playing on Sunday, I wonder if teams will take a wait and see approach.


#106

I feel this is the time of year where I think “f’ing hell, I wish I didn’t trade a ton of picks away”. And then I remember I usually f’up the picks anyway.


#107

I’ve turned over a lot of my squad from the past year as what happens when you have to rebuild after a long period of success. I like my midfield and forwardline, but my defence needs a little work, relying on some guys to stand up that didn’t last year. Hampton is back from injury and looks promising as a good scorer but I need him fit which is something that he hasn’t done so far. Birchall back is a bonus and Gutherie is a boost to the stocks, and Hughes was a prospect traded in more out of hope than anything. I also need Libba to stand up as last year he was pox. Having gone down a more youthful route with Allison, Turner, Hughes etc I think I’m a good chance for top 4 but will likely be very unpredictable.

B: Ethan Hughes - Grant Birchall - Kaiden Brand
HB: Cam Gutherie - Justin Westhoff - Curtly Hampton
C: Brad Hill - Luke Dunstan -Jack Newnes
HF: Sam Menegola - Lance Franklin - Travis Boak
F: Tim Membrey - Josh Kennedy - Jacob Allison
R: Matthew Kruezer - Luke Shuey - Tom Liberatore
Int: Mitch Robinson - Kayne Turner


#108

By what method do we nominate our keepers? Post on here or through UF?


#109

Leaning towards Walker for my last spot. 3 rucks means one less concern in draft


#110

I’ve got such an even spread between players 18-26 on my list that it’s making keeper choice a nightmare, convinced whichever way I go I’ll make the wrong decision.


#111

I think UF is primary spot for keepers.
Posting here is optional.


#112

Tim Kelly just decided to stuff everyone’s drafting plans up


#113

For those at the airport, what happened?


#114

The guy is a gun. Geelong did very well drafting him.

Didn’t think he’d make it to my pick unless there were some very strong JLT performances.


#115

Ahh. Yeah he’s not making it to the 2nd round.


#116

How’s MacPherson going on 30% gametime?
Nuts. That’s how.


#117

Was he the guy that CB had and rated?


#118

Wouldn’t know him if I passed him in the street.
But 8 possessions, 2 marks, 2 tackles from about 20 minutes is pretty…pretty good.

Edit: And another tackle, and 100% accuracy kinda…doesn’t hurt either.


#119

He was! I remember myself and foggy had a mini disagreement. He thought he’d likely be delisted, I thought he was going to be a gun as his NEAFL numbers are phenomenal. As I said at the time his issues are not finding the ball, but a) getting midfield time where he’s been dominant in the seconds and b) getting on the field and not the bench. He’s still a chance to make my keepers but I’m not making my mind up based on one game.


#120

Surely Lindsay Thomas is a lock for the first round?
