  1. Cannot believe we would take Luke Jackson at 3 or even 8. Cannot kick and barely knows the game. Would be going on raw athleticism but this won't help our side one bit next year.
  2. Salem can play midfield and in fact should be the one kicking the ball I50 to leading forwards. He's not the best defender as is a bit slow/lacks intercept marketing ability for mine.
  3. After seeing his highlights im sold on him. Has utility written all over - half forward or half back? Where would he play for us? Kemp at 3 & Weightman at 8. We can't draft two players under 180cm with our 2 picks. We'd have to be one of the shortest clubs in the competition already.
  4. I'm worried if we give up 3 we lose out on Caleb Serong, who will go 4 or 5. He's a very good footballer. I suppose at 6 we could get Sam Flanders as a similar type player, then Weightman at 8 which is a bit overs for him IMO.

  6. Yeah very misleading that first tweet. They get picks 1 & 20 as compo picks, then their real pick is pick #2.
  7. I have no issue with us getting 2 or even 3 forwards with the picks we have in the draft. Its our biggest glaring list hole and the only way to convert some of that inside 50 dominance.
  8. Well he's not even in the top 20 in most phantom drafts so unless he's seriously bolted. Saints will give pick 6 to Freo so they aint gonna use it on him. There's also 2-3 other good forwards in the top 20 like Caleb Serong & Taheny. https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-08-08/cal-twomeys-2019-phantom-form-guide-august-update
  9. Yeah strange. That's a good point. Seems he was a fanboy of Beveridge but maybe offered little other than some wacky names for things.
  10. You'd think Goody would want to implement his own ideas and not all of Jennings. So its likely Goody only actions half of what Jennings recommended. You'd think a senior coach would want to own the strategy so maybe that caused friction.
  11. Yeah its true. For all his knowledge and strategy, it still wasn't enough to overcome factors like having your best 4-5 players off the park for most of the year. That aligns with his Pareto Principle analogy though, that 20% of your players account for 80% of the result. T Mac, Melksham, Jetta im looking at you.
  12. Anyone hear Jennings on SEN today? Guy has a massive amount of knowledge on the game & strategy. Great to listen to: https://www.sen.com.au/programs/whateley/ He's gonna be a big loss for us, although he is Goody's best mate so I assume he'd be in his ear quite a bit which is good. Listen to what he says from the 18 minute mark....where he dissects the Bulldogs new game plan style and says that's the strategy he'd employ if coaching somewhere in 2020.
  13. I'm warming to the idea of splitting the pick. Our list has that many glaring holes in it, a highly talented U18 player won't help, especially in their first 1-2 years. Look at what Lukosious, Rankine & King did from picks 2-4 this year..jack s$#t. With picks 13 & 17 hypothetically instead, we can trade one or both in for talent that can make an impact, and possibly still get a 1st round draft pick.
