AFL Draft 2018 Thread


#822

Great ball control.


#823

From memory FS Rookies come right at the end


#824

How the hell did Will Langford win a norm smith and now is a rookie reject a few years later.


#825

We passed on the rest


#826

Unless it’s an automatic selection if nobody picks him up and you don’t have to bid?


#827

Weird, why nominate him then not pick him?


#828

Just couldn’t pass on a player like Matt Dea. We didn’t expect him to be available at our pick, etc, etc.


#829

Agreed. This is very odd.


#830

I think this was just a blitz folk tale.

I never saw any official releases on it.

Blitz just talked about it so much it became fact.


#831

So we swapped baguley to the rookie list, for Dea.


#832

Baguley stayed on the main list.

Is Kieran Strachan, now Adelaide, our former seconds player?


#833

We are now free to pick up Daniel Hanna as a category B rookie. Surely worth a shot.


#834

The club publicly announced that Baguley would be delisted, picked up as a rookie… and then they changed their mind, and decided it would be Dea.


#835

Anyone take Grigg?


#836

The club didn’t publicly announce that about Baguley. An AFL communications specialist wrote an article suggesting that’s what would happen. That article wasn’t even posted on the club site


#837

Possibly, I thought I saw an afl article on it.

If we were remotely interested we should be getting him to the VFL to take a decent look. If he doesn’t come down then he isn’t serious and we can put a line through him.


#838

Three questions:

Is Mark Baguley on one of our lists (or will he be)?
Is Matt Neagle on one of our lists (or will he be)?
Is Zac Clarke on one of our lists (or will he be)?


#839

Yes, primary
No, probably not.
No, probably.


#840

Yes (senior)
No no
No yes


#841

Yeah, they lied.
