    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Or in the case of Jordon, not so late get! Wonder if Andrews comes back as a over-ager.

    Who’s left?

    Don't worry about Jordan, he came into the Chargers system late and hoped he'd get to us late, reckon he's among the best kicks in the pool and a very good decision maker. Surprised he went this high, but happy we brought him in.

    Will there be runner cam? What happens if the runner does a hammy and doesn't submit the pick in time? Maybe the NGA bids can be settled by whichever club's runner gets to Gill first. Would be better than the GF sprint. I think I prefer this system tbh...

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Would be stoked if this happened. Sounds like there's lots of hijinks to play out yet. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-11-21/callum-twomeys-late-mail

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Funnily enough I was reminded of McKay when watching Kennerley too, though I reckon Kennerley projects as a more consistent ball winner I think Kennerley’s got a bit more depth on his kick than someone like Billy and he had a more consistent season than McKenzie. Although I really like McKenzie’s potential (his upside arguably greater than Kennerley), I think Kennerley's game is closer to what we need right now. I also like that Kennerley was able to hit the scoreboard on a regular basis as well. A good finisher from around 50, which would be invaluable if he were to bring that to senior AFL footy. Not often you come across an inside ball winner with the burst speed that Sparrow has, so can see the appeal. The polish could come when the game slows down for him (with experience), but that level of competitiveness is virtually impossible to teach. Tom Joyce has plenty of fans too, there were some whispers that Freo might look to grab him with their 2nd or 3rd rd pick. He’s probably gotten lost amongst the 5 or so very highly rated SA boys.

    Kennerley's the one for mine if Sturt & O'Halloran are gone, but McKenzie's not a bad option if it pans out that way. Seems like there's a lot of love for Tom Sparrow too.
  7. Tend to agree, although I think Tyson's spot is there for the taking. One of Kolodjashnij or Hunt could step straight in, but Wagner could keep them honest. Probably better suited to that role than Tyson in a direct comparison.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Yep, Libs aren’t even bothering to run dead in Richmond. They want Greens to topple Labor here and don’t want to divert any votes away from them. Greens are a strong chance in Richmond too. Labor are appropriately nervous about this one.
  9. Reckon this will be a nice get. Liked Corey in his draft year, had zip and made things happen, should be good depth in an area where we need it (outside run). Ended up going the pick after Mitch King in 2015. Another tick for the Casey partnership as well. VFL: Corey Wagner’s AFL journey

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Bytel was very good last year. Two I like as smokies are Daly Andrews from Western Jets (long kicking, athletic type who loves going for a run) and James Jordan (186cm Oakleigh midfielder who can play half back, great decision maker and could be the most penetrating kick in the class). For different reasons, both didn't have a tonne of exposure this year, but could be great late gets.

    PICKS # 26 & 31 (formerly # 23 & 28)

    AFL Draft Central have a look at a few who they rank in the 16-30 range. https://www.afldraftcentral.com.au/2018/11/07/afl-draft-central-november-2018-power-rankings-16-30/

    PICKS # 26 & 31 (formerly # 23 & 28)

    Interesting to hear that Valente & Duursma are among the 20 kids invited to day 1 of the draft and Ian Hill & Curtis Taylor, who have both been comfortably ranked inside the top 20 for the last year or so, are not. Dees could have some handy players slide to 23 & 28. Some more names to consider: https://coupler.foxsports.com.au/api/v1/article/amp/afl/afl-2018-draft-board-power-rankings-26-to-50-the-hidden-gems-that-loom-as-draft-bargains/news-story/9f1044dcf7c125149ed2139eaa5108e3?__twitter_impression=true

    Jordan Clark

    Fair chance that he’ll be amongst the first 10 names called out.

    2019 Fixture

    Yep. We don't need to be giving the reigning premier any advantage, would rather we play St Kilda or Carlton tbh. Doesn't feel right that we are virtually selling our home game against the team that knocked us out in the prelim.

    Vale Colin Sylvia

    A day on and still numb from the sad news. Whilst there was always a tinge of regret for what Col might have been, what he was on field was still pretty good. Especially when you consider the performances of the (many) players around him at the time, Colin still managed to give us quite a few highlights in some pretty lowly times. Will always be one of my favourites, rest in peace Colin Sylvia.

    Kieran Lovell

    We did have some interest in his draft year, but he ended up going a bit higher than expected on draft day. Wonder if we kept tabs on him. http://www.hawthornfc.com.au/news/2015-11-24/pick-22-kieran-lovell

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    Despite his trade grade, he still has us as premiership contenders after getting May in the door. I’m pretty happy with how the list looks post trade period.

    PICKS # 26 & 31 (formerly # 23 & 28)

    Bailey Williams has been on the fringes of the first round for much of the year. Has drifted out of the conversation for the top 25 or so, but has potential as a tall forward.
  20. ChaserJ

    Jay Lockhart

    28 feels too high, but anything after that I'd be happy with. Pretty sure Lockhart played National Under 18's for Tas in the same year KK did.
  21. May was a priority access selection for the Suns (NT zone), but would have otherwise been in the 2010 draft pool. He was full forward in the U18 All Aus team. Lucas Cook was CHF. Tom McDonald was a speculative pick at 53.
  22. KK was very much in contention to be drafted with our pick 2 if we held onto it in 2013. Billings probably was just in front, but KK very much in the conversation.

    PICKS # 26 & 31 (formerly # 23 & 28)

    I'd like us to get on the line to GWS. Not sure if they have any high end academy players coming through next year, but maybe we can offer up next years 2nd in combination with one of our 2nd rd picks to get one of their three first rounders. Would not only get us in the first round, but also give us the flexibility of trading our first round pick next year if we get involved with any of those high profile players coming out of contract (Kelly, Whitfield, Martin, etc.).

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Remember Schwarz, Bennett, Jako & Lyon lining up in the same forward line at times in 91-93

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    One of Salem or KK to the wing. Both good overhead with pace and very good disposal.
