    PICKS # 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 # 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

    The Jordan Clark Thread

    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.

    The Kieran Lovell Thread

    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.

    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.

    The Jay Lockhart Thread

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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 # 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.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Yep, I can’t work out why he isn’t talked about more. Wouldn’t be surprised if he moved up the boards closer to draft day(s).

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I like Xavier O’Halloran or maybe Ned McHenry in that range. Maybe Curtis Taylor or Sam Sturt will be around, but with a couple of 2nd rounders and a couple of 3rds we must be some chance of getting into the 1st rd somewhere.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    So effectively looks like Hogan for May, KK & pick 23. https://amp.theage.com.au/sport/afl/big-names-caught-up-in-eight-club-mega-deal-20181016-p50a1x.html?__twitter_impression=true If that’s the way it lands, I’d hope we’d look at some of our picks to move up into the 1st round. Pick trading can continue all the way up to the draft this year.

    Freo continue to confuse... https://amp.theage.com.au/sport/afl/fremantle-had-face-to-face-meeting-with-jesse-hogan-20181015-p509tp.html?__twitter_impression=true

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Wonder if they'd give us pick 19 if we added one of our other picks as well.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Fair summation. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to sway public opinion in a short space of time. Polling suggests that the election’s looking close enough for a major issue to tilt balance either way.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Wasn't a Greens MP that said that (although they didn't support the notion, which is to be expected). It was leader of the opposition, Matthew Guy, that made the statement about Melbourne FC being more likely to win a flag than get planning approval for the Yarra Park HQ. He apparently knows a thing or two about planning approvals.

    Electrifying Aboriginal forwards

    Lots of speculation linking him to Essendon, but can't imagine GC would let him go cheaply. Another coming out of contract in 2019.
  25. Had we held onto pick 2 in the 2013 draft, KK was just behind Billings on our rankings and would have well and truly been in the mix. We rated him pretty highly.
