Actually, I don’t think that will happen, all clubs very happy with the 100 game rule, so is the AFL


#682

I look forward to the AFL expanding the “1 first round academy pick” rule to include F/S picks in 2021.


#683

Here is the snap, as far as I can tell they qualify for us as both F/S and academy


#684

Ah, so the AFL will make us match the bid twice.


#685

Probably 4 times, there is two of them


#686

fast forward to draft day.


#687

imagibe the chemistry of the twins in our forward 50. pulling out crumbing party tricks all day long.

throw in joe dan lobbing goals from 70 out. McKenna and Saad speeding outta the backline so fast your head would spin…

EFC…the aussie rules equivalent of the harlem globetrotters. :rofl:


#688

Four Davey’s in one team, that would be something.

Walla will be in the side as the elder statesman.

Dreamtime at the 'G.


#689

You know what would be super weird, Jake Long and Yestin Eades aside, froggy’s sons might be the first indigenous guys we draft between when he retired and when they arrive


#690

and walla…


#691

So apart from the other indigenous guys, they’ll be the first! Righto then …


#692

Yestin was in the main draft, but both Jake and Walla the rookie draft.

Are you giving up on your theory about the Thatcher’s in Zerk-Thatcher’s home area?


#693

What rule is that? Like a Heeney rule?


#694

#696

I’m having Deja Vu, …:wink:


#697

Yeah, they changed the rules last year so that if you finish top 4 you can only match one academy bid in the top 20, top 8 two bids, outside the 8 any number of bids. I’m 90% sure that doesn’t apply to F/S bids.


#698

Anthony Long?


#699

Isn’t Lavender partly indigenous?


#700

The aqueduct?


#701

He was drafted before Davey retired.
