The end of year cannon - who should be fired into the sun?


#1565

Given Redman and Deas height I think we’re fine.


#1566

take it all back. frost is a hack


#1567

Sitting on a ball, in the middle of the Andes.


#1568

Long is still a rookie


#1569

Ahhhh!!! No, he’s not, despite what’s on the website.


#1570

Yup. Just so there’s a reference:


#1571

I apologise, sorry for relying on the Essendon website.


#1572

Rookie error.


#1573

Hopefully they get it right next year, might take 'til June though.

To be fair they corrected most of their errors by April this year.


#1574

So what’s our name then…ah May…well in ya hop before anyone notices you.
Toodalooh :wave: oh ■■■■ he wasn’t even signed up yet…good well done everyone for future thinking.


#1575

Shove your self in there. That’s the way ok.
Well love you Long time :wave:.


#1576

Does the canon go off on October 31st?


#1577

There is a super 7/8.
Which means that if gold
Coast get priority pick for lynch our pick 8 to 9 slides a lot


#1578

It will slide nothing surer. Someone will need to bid on Blakey and we have to hope someone slips a little


#1579

Not necessarily.
Given there seems to be dispute about exactly which of 10 or so players form this super 7/8 (eg Rankine is in some not others top group).
And the tipping seems strong that GC would take both Kings with their picks, leaving a bunch of mids to fight over.
Crows seem likely to go for best available South Australian- by the time they choose this might be rated as Pick 11 or 12.
And, given there’s no talls, will Freo pick one anyway, or go for a home grown Hill?
With Sydney’s academy pick the wildcard.

Pick 9 probably virtually as good as Pick 8 but I wouldn’t want to drop / trade the first round into the teens unless Disco has a very special project player earmarked.


#1580

Isnt it

Walsh
Lukosious
Smith
Rankine
Blakey
King
King
Rozee

Then maybe Thomas? And we dont have access to Thomas or Blakey?


#1581

This probably belongs more in the draft pages, but to answer your question, at least in part.
Knightmare only rates Rozee (SA) at 11, with Hately (also SA) at 8. Almost the reverse of Twomey’s ratings.
He also has McFadyen - a Bears academy player at 9. Could they be pushed into a bid for him with their first round? Dunno.

But it’s rare for the first 8 picks to go as planned - someone sees something they really like, they might or might not preempt tied picks from other clubs, and there’s pick trading this year as well.

Basic point is it’s not a super draft - the top players have real potential but, like any draft there won’t be a lot of diffence between 8 & 9.


#1582

Maybe not the order, but my understanding those are the clear best players, which means if you put a line through academy players there is a clear top 7. After that reports seem to say its a pretty stock standard draft, it is just the top group who stand out.


#1583

Add too many key forwards on our list. It’s Dodo’s specialty the talls…


#1584

A parody account surely.

Either that or the village has a new idiot.
