2019 FF Original Draft Discussion Thread


#162

Have you put any serious thought into that first name you read out? Scott West was my first ever pick, and whilst he did play 3 seasons, average 100+, win a B&F and a premiership…he was still only a Scott…not really a name that has the gravitas needed to inspire a cult following.

So, may I suggest Red Óg Murphy.


#163

The Irish are so five years ago.
I suggest a South African twist.
Buku Khamis Springs to mind.

I am assuming Red us Irish and Buku is South African. I’ve never seen and only going by their name.


#164

@Crazy_Bomber you are up


#165

Right part of the world, however Buku is another child of the Sudanese civil war.


#166

And if he doesn’t pick soon, we will be waiting on @topdon for until tomorrow as he’s about to go to bed.


#167

What does the “autopick” logo next to each person’s name do?


#168

Whenever my pick comes around I won’t take it until about 8:30pm tonight AEST.


#169

Can’t he leave 1 contingency? If Craze takes it so be it…but surely he’d have some idea of who he wants


#170

Assuming you mean on the draft ticker - nothing it just means they’re off-line


#171

Possibly! The same as how everyone should leave one.


#172

Was hoping Cavarra may slide a touch further. Next pick looking skinny


#173

Haha no worries, sure you would think they would have some kind of logic now on

  • if there are C’s, there’s some left
  • if there are C’s but none left
  • manual picking
  • auto-picking

I’m asking for too much! haha


#174

Jeepers less than two hours and I cop it and I even did even leave a contingency too. Apologises for the holdup.


#175

no need to apologise, good pick!

we’re likely on hold for the next few hours. but then should be able to make some progress once Smotes is awake :slight_smile:


#176

Jarrod Cameron is taking this whole mature rookie to an extreme!! 119 years old.


#177

I’m up. Give me a few min


#178

By few did you mean 60+???


#179

Seems like it. Not intentional I assure you. I’m desperately short of defenders and decent, young players are thin on the ground.


#180

Picking now


#181

Been caught out the last few years drafting fringe players who didn’t make their sides best 22. Whilst Walker is probably a massive stretch, he’s best 22 and he can throw up a good score if needed. Before last year he was averaging around 80 and if Adelaide improve like they should I can see him back there.
