    I saw that breakdown of our team's profile too. I think it both confirms why GWS should be favourites for the next flag but also bodes very well for our future. We've managed to renew our list on the run without dropping a whit. Outstanding work by the club and the coaching staff! I was wondering who the third player 30+ was - Buddy! Already. He's still got another 6 seasons. Anyway, not complaining. We're lucky to have him and his price looks more reasonable with each passing year.

    Just to add something in a different direction, possibly closer to the thread topic: some great names in this year's drafts. I think better than Esava Ratugolea, better even than Toby Pink, is Quinton Narkle. A coruscating name, although not necessarily one I'd volunteer for. Geelong are taking on Collingwood's Broomhead and Sidebottom might. Perhaps still not as good as my all time favourite, which, even though I don't take any interest in NRL, is an NRL player's name: Fuifui Moimoi. Brilliant!
    Yes, I just hope that Dennis Cometti is sitting at home, thinking, 'Quinton Narkle! I really want to call that name. Maybe I should make a comeback?'
    And it does seem appropriate to me, that Pink is playing in red and white.
    Though, if you really want bizarre names, then you can't go past the NFL. Marquis Pouncey, Elvis Dumerville and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix; to name but a few.

    I was wondering with Jonathon Marsh (ex Magpie, 194cm defender, brother of Harry Marsh) retiring for 2017 season i wonder if he is a player we are looking at for 2018 ?

    17 days to the draft: Meet gun prospect Jonathon Marsh - AFL.com.au

    2.78 seconds for 20m sprint

    He retired because he was homesick? Moved back to WA signed with a WAFL club after not getting traded doubt he would move to Sydney even if Harry is here. What if we delist Harry next year.

    These are brilliant and I've never heard of any of them. Love Marquis Pouncey especially. According to Dane Swan, a baseball first baseman's coach for the Royals was called Rusty Kuntz. Dane thought that was pretty good.

    Parks bought his guns on special at the after-xmas sale at DJs the year before last.
    (His girlfriend asked me to stop mentioning them, as she had to live with his big head. They're lovely people!!)
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    There's a highly rated Parkeresque player in next year's draft pool: James Worpel.

    Yes Annie. This guy is a 17 year old.

    I want to add something, but I keep on self-censoring.

    Well done, that man.

    Knowing I was a Swans supporter, at a Xmas soiree on the weekend (where we were of course drinking red and white) a keen North Adelaide supporter who attends a lot of their games including U18s, told me that Will Hayward was the most talented player he had seen in a long time, said he was gifted and did special things on the field with regularity.

    Made me feel a whole lot better about his drafting, needs time of course but should add X factor to the forward line, in place of Heeney!
