    The Toby Bedford Thread

    Yep that's right. "Under the draft bidding system, all clubs have the right to bid for academy and father-son players in the draft but a club with priority over the player has the right to match the draft pick with their own draft pick or picks to achieve the points required to secure the player (all draft picks are given a points value)." https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/afl-draft-pool-drained-by-academies-20180502-p4zcxn.html Here's an interesting map that shows which clubs have access to what across Australia. I'm sure there's going to be some unfair advantages. http://www.afl.com.au/news/game-development/nab-afl-rising-star-program/nga-clubacademies Next generation AFL club academies – Victorian clubs region allocation Western Bulldogs – Western Melbourne, Wimmera, Mallee, South West Victoria, Ballarat, (North Ballarat Rebels & Western Jets) Essendon – North West Melbourne (Calder Cannons), West Arnhem (NT) Melbourne – South East Melbourne (Dandenong Stingrays), Alice Springs (NT) Collingwood – Central Melbourne (Oakleigh Chargers), Barkly (NT) St Kilda – Inner Southern Melbourne (Sandringham Dragons), Frankston LGA North Melbourne – Melbourne and Wyndham LGAs (Calder Cannons & Western Jets) Hawthorn – Eastern/Whitehorse LGAs (Eastern Ranges), Gippsland (Gippsland Power), Katherine (NT) Carlton – Northern Melbourne (Northern Knights) Geelong – Geelong /Hampden (Geelong Falcons), East Arnhem (NT) Richmond – Goulburn Murray, Bendigo, Sunraysia, North Central (Bendigo Pioneers and Murray Bushrangers)

    Round 15 Non MFC Games

    It's a shame Caleb Daniel was injured as imagine him on Tom Boyd's shoulders for the man on the mark...

    Round 13 Non - MFC Games

    Surely Freo aren't that good, it;s just Carlton playing crap? It's not like their form in Melbourne's been great. Good luck to Bolton in his press conference haha

    Round 12 Non-MFC

    I don't think Dew rejected the job but Sydney stood in his way as he was contracted at the time (there's a gentleman's agreement that clubs should let contracted assistants leave if they're going for other senior coaching jobs but Sydney argued it technically wasn't a senior coaching job due to the succession plan).

    DRAFT DAY 2017

    Every draft seems to have a few surprising names to miss but if every club passes them up then that has to tell you something....

    NAB Draft - Closest the Pin

    Rumours are that the Bulldogs will get Dom Barry with a late pick (Collingwood and Hawthorn have also chatted to him).

    29. Jordan Gysberts 31. Cale Morton 36. Lucas Cook 47. Jimmy Toumpas' brother

    Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    Is he better than pick 47? If not, I'd still rookie him. If he's does well next year could give him one more year. How many rookie spots do we have?

    Trade rumours

    Seems a pretty good get, if the bombers stay in the same position as this year that's only pick 28 for Saad. Goes back to the point of draft picks being over-rated due to the uncertainty. Would the odds only be 50/50 that pick 28 would end up being a regular 22 player?
