    Lazy buggers. We started preseason tonight. 45 minutes of 9's followed by 4 stubbies. Misson has no idea.

    Viney, Brayshaw, Tyson, Salem, Petracca, Parish. Just wanted to see what that looked like in black and white.

    I think this negative hair talk should cease. We should embrace the locks if picked. Who knows.... we may even land a new $500,000 - $1million sponsor in Decore or Sunsilk.....positive thoughts people. Become a destination club and entice the likes of Sloane, Mundy, Maric. Embrace the locks people. #embracethelocks shall trend!

    Well it looks like Cal Twomey has now covered every possible scenario, and I'm sure he'll gloat when one of them comes up.

    FFS, seeing threads like this bumped scare the [censored] out of me.

    Those who are writing off the likelihood of us picking up Collins and to a similar extent Harry McKay should note that they are both almost 12 months younger than Curnow. In fact, Harry McKay (DOB 24/12/97) only just qualifies for this draft. Had he been only 8 days younger he'd be playing U18's again next year and not eligible for this draft. Collins (DOB 14/12/97) isn't much older. If you consider that our extra top 10 pick is in effect next years 1st round pick, the club may be thinking about picking what they see as the best bottom age talent to offset the fact that we don't have next years 1st round pick. In effect, give them 12 months in the system developing similar to what has happened with Hogan and now Petracca. My guess is that Curnow, Francis and Weideman will be gone before pick 7. I reckon that either of Collins and/or McKay are well and truly in the mix for pick 7. I can't see us passing on Parish at 3.

    Dawes gets paid more than most at MFC and some of his performances are so bad its unbelievable that it gets zero airtime. Yet Watts drops a mark and its all over the media.

    Don't talk to the players and get any interesting goss cos you'll be accused of being an apologist. Don't give any opinions cos you'll be accused of knowing nothing about footy. And don't favour anyone or you'll be accused of having favourites. And don't tell us that we've improved because you'll be told "it's only training". Really looking forward to your reports!

    And he's done SFA to solve the Syria situation

    Jack should stick to fixing up all the other things he's failed at, like stopping world hunger and finding a cure for cancer. He's done neither of these things since he was drafted and, frankly, I'm angry about it.

    Jetta and Salem were his two main pin ups weren't they? They're still kicking around. I hope he's enjoying his new job and doesn't have to tolerate too many lemon sucking hair shirt wearers.

    Another clone of Brayshaw would be nice. Glad we've got that lad.

    I have to say '94 was better because Schwarter was in full flight and had yet to do a knee.

    Both were flawed by back injuries In '94 Allen Jakovich didn't make September In '98 Garry Lyon's back was completely shot by the Prelim Final. He could hardly move out of the goal square. 2 potential flags down the S Bend (Oh yeah & the Ox was concussed in the '94 Semi against Footscray and hardly saw the ball the week later in Perth)

    Adcock is the only DFA I would consider kicked 4 goals in his last game might provide 2 years like Cross

    I wouldn't be shocked if we went our preferred forward with 3 (if he wasn going to be there at 6/7), and then used 7 to get a Milera or Gresham type. Definitely a possibility if we're keen on a particular forward. Guess it comes down to how highly we rate Parish. I'd back the club either way

    After a number of days I weakened P-man read four posts and decided it was a bad decision

    It's actually pretty simple: In the draft you take the best available player regardless of their position! During the trade period you address the positions that need upgrading! Hawthorn and Sydney have been doing it for years (inevitably resulting in the need to trade tall's; think Hale, Gunston, Lake, Frawley, McVoy, Franklin, Tippet, Richards, Mumford, etc) If you end up with to many quality players in the similar positions (midfielders) then they will have the currency to be converted (traded) into other positional requirements. Not having followed this draft heavily, and following this very simple principle, I would expect: Parish at 3 and Oliver/Francis at 7

    You seem to be a decent poster mate, but I struggle to read anything you've written thanks to the one, two punch from your avatar and username combo.

    Best strategy has to be take best available, regardless of postional need. In this era of player movement, a graders are 'currency'. we can always trade out surplus a graders for proven players of a certain position the following year. Draft must be treated as a way to accrue currency. Trade period to be used to fill holes in the list.

    Wholeheartedly disagree. Haven't heard his programme but some of his written work is hilarious. Definitely one of the sharper wits in footy.

    Love the way he goes about his footy! Needs a full preseason to build the tank (which will hopefully assist his DE) and probably needs to lose some of the bulk he's carrying to take the next step with the physical side of the game... he'll look like a Fremantle midfielder. He's big, strong, dogged and nasty... get him in at the centre bounce!
