2019 FF Original Draft Discussion Thread


#142

Lol. Had him at the top of my list but just couldn’t pull the trigger.


#143

Dropping like flies!!

I’m around refreshing all day so no need for a PM.

In fact. I’m spying on my dog for most of the day with my binoculars as he keeps finding a way off our property. So the draft will keep me busy.


#144

That’s frowned upon! I sweated out 4 picks waiting for someone to sweep him from under my feet.


#145

Yeah I don’t think we should be alerting about players not yet drafted. Prefer to talk about them once they’re taken and how they were able to slide.


#146

Tricky part of the draft coming up, hoping players can slide through to your next round. Probably reached a bit for Brown but he took 40% of kick ins for Adelaide last year, with the new rules hopefully he can add 10ppg and become a handy 70 avg defender.


#147

Pfft… I think the talk makes it interesting.


#148

I waited 50 picks and then picked two other players. Reckon he will be very handy


#149

apologies if I have broken an unspoken rule, won’t do it again moving forward. don’t really see the problem though, all the players are there to see.


#150

Oh crap! What a waste of a draft pick.


#151

I’m certain he’d have slipped another 26 picks if you hadn’t opened your mouth*!!

*Not in any way true. But I was hoping for the miraculous.


#152

Will pick within the hour - just debating between sticking to the plan and going mature or tossing it out the window and picking another rookie.


#153

He was the player I referred to in my earlier post about being the next Cripps (quote Paul Roos).


#154

He was the main suspect I thought of when you posted that .


#155

Yeah same.

But in my limited research I couldn’t find such a comment and being the next Cripps.


#156

I definitely didnt pick up on that. I thought he was just a forward, didn’t realise had scope to go into the midfield.


#157

Depth. Pfft. Who needs that?


#158

For where his first 3 picks were, foggy is nailing it.

Sparrow is a phenomenal pick - not sure how long the back eligibility lasts, but to be able to get someone with back eligibility even potentially for only 2 years, who averaged 100 at both SANFL reserve and U18 level, in a draft crop pretty much bereft of anybody averaging 100+…is knocking it out of the park.

Entirely possible I regret being the sentimental sort about players and not being able to pass up taking Rhylee.


#159

Moore and Blakey were ones I was hoping would be available when I picked. I am really surprised Blakey lasted as long as he did. Good pick Fog.

At this rate there will be no decent kids left when I finally pick.


#160

Don’t mind the Berry pick at all


#161

Early flag fav IMO
