The Draft

Written by Motts on November 23 2012

In the wash-up of last night’s draft, are you happy with who your club snagged? Who do you think did the best and worst?

  1. Collingwood clearly the winners. Between last night’s Draft and the Trade period, their off season is looking a lot like that of 2009-10 (the Jolly/Ball year)… scary!

  2. I would say that Carlton did quite well, same as the doggies, although Ollie Wines would have been better the Macrae in my opnion…

    I am a bit perplexed by my Bombers decisions. Joe – Tick. Defenders – Tick, but why woul you delist Lonergan and then replace him with virtual clones that will take a few year to but on the meat….?

    Anyway…BJ can play Ruck, Rover, FF and be the umpire ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Pies smashes it with Grundy – 100kgs already.

    Swans getting Membrey is apparently a steal.

    Menzel for the blues appears to be a gamble in the Stevie J mould.

    GWS CAN”T GO WRONG.

    McCrae = Watts???

    I’ll be sniffing around the dees and the roos for the mature age players of next year.

  4. I’m very interested in seeing what price young Viney starts with, could be a blue chip investment and will take a look at both Koby & Mitchell in the NAB Cup, neither of whom were from the draft, but, I am mentioning them anyway.
    Grundy looks a good long term pick up for my mob but i.m.o isn’t fantasy relevant next year. Jarrod Witts will play before him in a developmental role, Lynch will be the second ruck/forward and with the Hudson insurance plan, I can’t see Grundy doing much but developing in the ressie’s.
    I am saddened to see Wellingham leave as he was one of my favourites, but wish him well over there in Perth. He wont win the Eagles a flag, but he will definitely add a lot to a pretty damn impressive team that should be contending.
    Russell may be worth a look if he isn’t priced out of the marketplace, he’ll get an opportunity early on to demonstrate his wares.
    Most of all, after spending so much time during last pre-season presuming and predicting and then enduring injuries and bad luck and all the rest of it, I have decided to enjoy an off season away from this with only the occasional foray into the world of supercoach/dream team.
    Expecting Caaarlton -also known as Collingwood lite- to harden the f*ck up under Malthouse. Gibbs could be the go.
    Bartel as a forward merits consideration.

  5. Pick of the night: toss up between Oliver Wines (who looks set to play ASAP) who went to Port, or Brodie Grundy in the ruck for Collingwood.

    As for the others:
    Lachie Whitfield- as number one surely he’ll get game time? From my local area..

    Jimmy Toupas- midfielder with good accuracy

    Jackson McRae- has the ability to be a game changer

    Nick Vlaustin- long accurate kicking style

    Joe Daniher & Jack Viney surely will get games.

  6. Bloody stoked Wines slipped through and Hinkley had the sense to jump on him. I think the doggies will regret that one. Fair sized unit and seems AFL ready. Now I’d only someone has the sense to shoo Prismall away.

    Very surprised Grundy slipped through to the pies also. Your boys are the clear winner this draft HGL.

  7. north melbourne did a lot better than everyone realised.. by the end of the trade/draft period, north have ended up with 3 first round draft picks. Ben Jacobs (pick 16), Jordan Gysberts (pick 11 or something) and Taylor Garner with our pick 15. Gysberts and Jacobs are outside players who havent been given the opportunity at their clubs melbourne + port so I think they can reach their true potential at north!

  8. Sydney picking up Membrey at 46 is like my birthday, Christmas, Easter and New years eve all rolled into one… A steal!
