  1. That's unfortunate, we play them in round 5
  2. Just going off the totals it's actually pretty fair. Hawks and dogs probably a bit higher than deserved and Saints and Giants unlucky but overall reasonable balance of performance vs big money clubs
  3. We have a similar run against the Eagles. The only time we are the home team against them is in the NT. Since 2010 we've only played them at the G twice
  4. 2 things guaranteed every year. A game in Geelong and 2 games against the Saints
  5. My favourite part about Jason Taylor's interview is that so many listen to then then proceed to come on DL and explain why it fits in with their predetermined opinion on who we should pick/pick we should trade. So anyway here's how it fits into my opinion. I liked him actually saying that pick 3 is bring treated like pick 1, means we are unlikely to trade it unless it's an insanely good deal. He also spoke about 97 but without explicitly saying so it sounded like he thought that we would be trading in from there, which would have to mean that we're likely thinking about trading 8, hopefully we wait to do it on the night, just incase someone slips to 8. On that note I was surprised when Cal asked about Serong at 8 and not at 3... given that he has had him right up around picks 3/4 for much of the year, wonder if he has mail that he might be slipping with the likes of Jackson coming up the order and clubs still planning on taking Kemp before 8. On a side note: I'm also fascinated to know who JT wanted to play state footy but couldn't get it to happen. What I'd give to sit in on those meetings where they go through and plan their whole draft.
  6. Wangaratta and Wagga Wagga. Richmond's drawn the short straw
  7. I don't really want him, and it appears the clubs in the same boat, but a heavily front loaded contact would be better for us. Easier to manipulate our cap for just this year rather than next. Our salary cap crunch will come trying to re-sign everyone for beyond next year. If the bulk of a hypothetical Martin contact us paid 'up front' so to speak that would be ideal.
  8. I've been wondering if we might use pick 8 in the live trading. Use 3 on Young then wait, come pick 8 if our 2nd target is available (say Flanders or Serong) we take them if not then we try to do a pick swap with a Geelong or GC. 14 and 17 or 15 and 20 respectively for 8 then we might be able to hedge our bets and grab both Wightman and Pickett.
  9. I haven't been following Young too closely but from what I've seen I'd say Ash is more like Bacher as they both use run and carry as their weapon. I'd liken Young more to Shannon Hurn, using intercept marking and elite kicking as a weapon. But either is good
  10. Lots of people across many threads suggesting particular players will be available at 3 but not at 8. So for my own curiousity. Where are everyone's own top 10 Phantom drafts? (Assume no trading) Mine (At least for now): 1. (GC) Rowell 2. (GC) Anderson 3. (MELB) Young 4. (ADEL) Stephens 5. (GWS) Green (matching bid) 6. (SYD) Serong 7. (FREM) Kemp 8. (MELB) Flanders 9. (HAW) Maginness (matching bid) 10. (CARL) Ash Thoughts: Adelaide puzzles me I really don't know what they'll do, personally, I think Kemp would be their best choice to build the new era around, but given the big gap to their next pick they'll struggle to go past the talented local. Serong suits Sydney the most, with Jones on the move and Paley likely following next year but clearly they bid With 2 late top 10 picks Freo is in the perfect position to take the punt on Kemp. Working with Fyfe would do wonders for his development If Flanders or Serong slip to 8 I think we'd be negligent not to take them, my current list has Flanders slip. But if they're gone we'll probably as expected take Weightman Maginness would slot right into Carltons midfield next to Cripps and Walsh, so they bid and have it matched. Before taking Ash as the ready replacement for Simpso
  11. Hibbard is an All Australian defender. He might be past his best but he's better than your average player.
  12. I've been pro Serong or Flanders mostly because I think they're talented enough and with the goal sense we desperately need, but I have to admit I'm a sucker for a beautiful kick. Would love to have him in the side. Particularly with our forward press. Get him intercepting 80m from goal and his kicks inside 50 are a lead up forwards wet dream
  13. If we are worried about a pick in 2020 being pushed back too far should we just set GWS a task. For example just tell them, "Go fetch us Freo's pick 10. We don't care how you do it, but we will take that and 6 for 3". Otherwise we just keep 3. There are plenty of other side's they can deal with too. If we could get pick 8 then I'm sure the Giants can figure out a way to get a second good pick. Maybe they can get hold of Carltons pick 9 they seem to be able to convince them to take their scraps. When you give a club a deal you'll accept, then they'll often find a way to do it, particularly if they're as desperate as reported
