Any Riolis available ?  

Seriously Toby Bedford is the electrifying small indigenous forward on my list for MFC.  He has pace skill and tackling pressure.  Get the kid

Shai Bolton....

...been saying this for a while, serious x-factor but has been passed over for Higgins.

Worth a look.

He's too introverted.

Massive case of correlation not equaling cause Imo.

And every one of us has been lamenting taking Toumpas (a running outside mid) over Wines (the slow competitive type we are stacked with) for years.

We can’t have it every way.

Ok, well let’s not recruit any fast, skilful players because one we did Pick was a spud. 

Let’s go and find more Tysons & Maynards because we mustn’t have enough of those slow, unskilful types.

I would back the MFC to be the exception to this rule should we ever draft a rioli. That damned Norm Smith curse.

We need a couple badly.   You won't find too many Premiership winning teams, or even runners up, that didn't have some indigenous magic on the park.

It will be the icing on our team of big contested ball winning brutes.

I want another Aaron Davey, a Jeff Farmer and their sons.

I believe we once went to the draft intending to pick up a Rioli, but the dyslexic recruiter read out Rigoni instead.*

* no disrespect to Riggers, one of my favourites!

That is not what I said. Drafting is a complicated art.

We need fast skilful players but they have to meet other critearia and be obtained at a fair selection / price

Jeffy is still on our list, whether or not the magic has gone from him remains to be seen. But I do agree that I would like to see us look at recruiting a skilful fast indigenous player, there’s no doubt they seem to have some kind of magic that’s impossible to describe. 

I’d love an Aaron Davey v2!

I’d love to see a Garlett resurrection but feel like we might be up the creek on that.

Wonder if hes available?

Gold Coast still have so much talent.  Can you blame their kids for not flourishing up there?

If we could get Martin and Koladlaldashnij it would be huge.

Looking at the state leagues top goal kickers.

Shane McAdam - my mail is Carlton pick and trade him back to the Crows

Tyson Strengle - out of contract Tiger rumoured to go to the Crows

Anyone in the West know anything about Cody Ninyette or Michael Bennell?

If you have a chance to get Jack Martin you must take it, worth the risk.

Lots of speculation linking him to Essendon, but can't imagine GC would let him go cheaply. Another coming out of contract in 2019.
