    Best KPF we have developed since drafts began?

    This was a talking point today in a conversation I was having. Drafts began in 1986? from memory so that's more than 30 years.

    Who is the best KPF we have drafted and developed in those 30 years? Plugger, BBBH & Buddy ineligible.

    If 707s criteria is since drafting began in 1986, I doubt Capper would be eligible. He started with us in 1980/81 as an U19 - he wasn’t drafted - and was gone by 87. All of his development was pre-drafting.

    In fact, if 707s criteria is the last 30 years - which he stated - technically Capper becomes as ineligible as Plugger, BBBH & Buddy, as we recruited Wiz from Brisbane within the last 30 years

    The cupboard's been pretty bare for various reasons, mainly because we've poached them, or they left for greener pastures

    I can't think of anyone off the top of my head who surpasses Sam Reid, might have to do some more research!!

    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Cupboard is fairly bare eh? Sam Reid may just be the best in 30 years, sobering thought.

    Micky O I'm thinking more of a third tall rather than a KP.

    Micky O played alot at FF.

    Played HFF before he filled out.
    The eternal connundrum "what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" was finally solved when David Hasselhoff punched himself in the face.

    Yes. Mick was full-forward in the Indigenous Team of the Century.
