  1. Port Adelaide and Brisbane have engaged in a daring pick-swap, which sees the Power hand over their future first-round selection. They have sent it alongside picks 29 and 71 in exchange for picks 16, 52, 55 and 72. Power and Lions engage in daring pick swap The selection table now looks like this:- WHO HAS WHAT PICKS? Adelaide Crows: 4, 23, 28, 37, 45, 49 Brisbane Lions: 21, 29, 34, 48, 72 Carlton: 9, 43, 57, 70, 85 Collingwood: 35, 62, 74 Essendon: 31, 33, 61, 64, 65, 88 Fremantle: 7, 10, 22, 58, 69, 79, 83 Geelong Cats: 14, 17, 24, 36, 93 Gold Coast Suns: 1, 2, 15, 20, 78, 90 GWS Giants: 6, 40, 59, 60, 80, 94 Hawthorn: 11, 30, 42, 54, 63, 87, 92 Melbourne: 3, 8, 97 North Melbourne: 26, 27, 47, 50, 73, 84 Port Adelaide: 12, 16, 18, 52, 55, 66, 67, 68, 72, 86 Richmond: 19, 38, 39, 41, 56, 75, 77, 95 St Kilda: 51, 82, 100 Sydney Swans: 5, 25, 32, 44, 76, 81 West Coast Eagles: 46, 91, 108 Western Bulldogs: 13, 53, 89
  2. Going by the way the AFL sold the news of its draft concessions to the public (GCS taking two best mates from Victoria to limit the go home factor) I think it would be highly unlikely that the Suns would depart from the script of selecting Rowell and Anderson with 1/2.
  3. I’ve tried to find one particular clip of Robbie at Windy Hill one day when he took the ball from the back pocket, linking up with teammates through great running and passing all the way down the wing and ending in a spectacular goal. It was shown on the following morning on the World of Sport panel and was the best goal I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, we were a pretty ordinary side in those days and often given little time in the media. I’m assuming the footage has been lost. Pity.
  4. I was of the same view for much of the latter part of the season. Petracca was finally showing signs of maturing and even leadership on the field and a great deal of it was possibly going unnoticed because of the team’s circumstances. It’s so much harder to fire on a week by week basis when the team is unsettled and so many of the important components of the team are on the sidelines. He now appears to have passed his next test by coming back in good shape and raring to head into another pre season campaign. If his mid sized teammates all bring that mindset into 2020 it will represent a major contrast to how the team came into 2019 - they were an underdone and tired looking outfit from the start as evidenced by their failure to score in the opening game v Port and they were often blown away at the end of games. Tracc is one of those who is leading the way at the moment.
  5. Ok - let’s stay on topic (MFC training) in this thread and in future training threads please.
  6. The maximum list size is 47 which figure includes up to 3 Category B rookies. You don’t draft Category B rookies - you select them if they fit the criteria. The discussion about drafting is limited to the primary list and Category A rookies of which we can have a total of 44 (currently at 39).
  7. I don’t know how that’s possible without further delistings (unlikely) as we have 35 on the primary list and 4 rookies making 39 of a possible 44.
  8. I’m not sure if this is serious. We only have a limited number of vacancies (5) to go into the draft with and one has been set aside for Harley Bennell. If we are chasing Brown then it might be a sign that things aren’t working out with Sam Murray.
  9. The permission to train list is back (but there’s nobody on the list training at Melbourne Adelaide James Matthews (McLaren) Carlton Josh Deluca (Carlton) Lukas Webb (Western Bulldogs) Fremantle Hugh Dixon (Fremantle) Tom North (Fremantle) Gold Coast Josh Schoenfeld (Gold Coast) Hawthorn Darren Minchington (Hawthorn) North Melbourne Tom McKenzie (North Melbourne) St Kilda Angus Schumacher (Carlton) Bigoa Nyuon (Dandenong Stingrays) Sydney Jake Bartholomaeus (Sydney Uni) Jai Florent (Sandringham Dragons) Ryan Hebron (Werribee VFL) Aidyn Johnson (Port Adelaide) Jack Maibaum (Sydney)
  10. OK, OK - just testing everyone’s awareness.
  11. According to the club’s website - TrainingTimes Upcoming AFL training sessions Date: Friday 15 November Start time: 10.30am Location: Gosch's Paddock However, based on past events, there’s still every chance training will be on tomorrow.
  12. Since we drafted Finlayson and Langdon specifically to play on the wing, it might get very crowded there with Sparrow.
  13. One piece is never enough - you have to see him in colour too. This is from 1984 -
