    Changes v Hawthorn - Semi Final

    Based purely on the fact we are 13-3 when Spargo plays, and 2-5 in the games he's missed, Spargo has to play. So no change
  3. After yesterdays game he's now ranked 1st in AFL for Metres gained per game
  4. If Weideman, Curnow, and Francis are gone at pick 7 would Ryan Burton be worth taking or would that be a bit high? All Australian as a bottom-ager before missing this year with broken leg. Before his broken leg last year, he would have been rated higher then those 3.

    It wouldn't be a training report on Demonland without it turning into a thread about Saty.

    The Jake Lovett Thread

    http://www.afl.com.au/afl-hq/the-afl-explained/rookie-players FATHER-SON – ROOKIE PRE-SELECTION The Father-Son Rule previously applied to players selected at the National Draft. Under the rule, other AFL clubs can bid for eligible players who have been nominated under the Father-Son Rule by an eligible club. The nominating club can select the eligible player by forfeiting its next available pick in the draft if a bid has been made by another club. If there is no bid from another club, the nominating club forfeits its last pick in the National Draft. A club can pre-select an eligible player as a Category A rookie between the Pre-Season and Rookie Drafts (with the player’s consent) provided the player had nominated for but was not selected by another club at either the National or Pre-Season Drafts. In that case, the relevant club would forfeit its last available selection in the Rookie Draft to take the player. This is the rule from last year, and with the new bidding system, obviously the National Draft rules have changed. But with the changes to the biding system only effecting players bid in the first 3 rounds it shouldn't effect the rules for Father-Son Rookies

    Six players in the team of the week!

    He has had 25 touches 6 out of the last 7 games, so that's reasonable consistency

    2014 Rookie Draft

    Yeah your right, nominations were monday From Afl website: Monday December 1 - AFL delisted player free agency period (3) ends. AFL club list lodgement (3) and TPP estimates. International players inclusion on rookie list form; Scholarship players rookie list form lodged; Father/son and Academy pre-selected rookie nominations. So Brisbane decided not to nominate him, so he's free to be taken by anyone

    Training - Monday 1st December, 2014

    I like that he was struggling as long as he was battling though it, shows he was actually putting in and not cruising though.
  12. Ok, yeah when i was looking at it afterwards it seemed wrong, looking at the birthday paradox it's over 99.9% chance that a player will share a birthday. I was only calculating the likely hood of each individual draftee having a teammate drafted with the same birthday, not the whole group . If each team drafted 4 players, each player would have 3 teammates drafted with 1/365 of having the same birthday as them, so each player has 3/365(0.8%) Chance of having a team mate with the same birthday.With 72 players or 71 pairs of player combinations, with a 3/365 chance of having a team mate drafted with same birthday, making 213/365 or 58% chance of a team drafting team mates having the same birthday each year. But i'm probably completely wrong

    Pre Season Draft

    Unless we delist a contracted player the senior list is complete. We have 2 free spots on the rookie list .
  14. Ignoring overage players, If each team on average takes 4 players then 72 players are drafted then it's 71/365.25 that 2 people with the same birthday will get drafted. then it's a further 3/71 that that player will be drafted to the same team. so that makes it 216/25932.75 which is 0.83% chance that 2 players with the same birthday will drafted to the same team each year
  15. Comparing Scully to Petracca as a 18 year olds, the only thing i'd give to Scully is cleaner hands in close, better handballer, and endurance. Petracca is clearly the better athlete. Is Bigger, stronger, more aggressive. Is a much better mark, kick, and tackler. He is able to hurt teams offensively on the inside as well as the outside and kick goals much better then Scully was. As a 18 year old due to his good hands in close and the smaller bodies he was playing against, Scully was probably as dominant on the inside as Petracca, but due to his small size it's not a dominant skill as transferable as Petracca's . Petracca's a likable kid and team mates seem to like him, unlike Scully Winner Petracca I'd Rate coming out Trengove and Brayshaw pretty similar, Both as a 18 year old are pretty similar athletically,good speed on first few steps, average top speed though Brayshaw would be quicker, though Trengove would have him on endurance. Brayshaw is clearly better inside player, with better strength and size, Though Trengove would be the better outside player and is a better kick on his prefered foot, brayshaw would have him on his non prefered. Both showed the ability to kick a goal, Trengove would of been the better mark and better forward. Both showed aggression and willing to tackle, though due to size and strength, Brayshaw would have Trengove on that. Both really good leaders and natural Footballers. As a 18 year old i don't think there was much between the 2 and Can't split them. TIE Going on the prospects they were when drafted i'd have to give it to Brayshaw/Petracca over Scully/Trengove, 1 1/2 points to 1
