    Not much of a draft hand this year, currently pick 13 and 32.

    This will become 15 and 34 after Daicos and Darcy are taken at the very top of the draft, picks 1 and 2 would be ideal given neither Pies or Pups can pay for them with 2021 points at this time. Crows showed how to do it last year, up to Norf and Hawks to also keep them honest, particularly after Beveridge's sooking it up about this possible scenario recently.

    Good news that we get to party with Amartey for another two years.

    Yes, absolutely no sympathy for Beveridge. Especially after the Dogs scored Ugle-Hagan, because, er, you know, without the great work done by the NGAs, indigenous kids in Victoria would never had dreamed of playing Aussie rules.

    Yes so true. The NGAs are a joke and only exist to reduce the whining of the Victorian Clubs.

    Yes, though at least they've partially recognised that, with clubs no longer getting any discount, if a NGA prospect is bid on in the top twenty.

    It's good to hear it officially. Hopefully we'll keep them coming over the next few weeks.

    Fixed that for you :-)

    It's actually they can't match a top 20 bid this year and a top 40 bid from next year. a belated admission from the AFL that NGA's were a poorly thought through idea. A year too late for the Fairy Pups not to hugely benefit.

    I don't think any Academy, NGA or F/S draftee should be discounted, surely the ability to match a bid is reward enough.

    Do we see first year rookies extended two years very often at this club? To do so you'd think Sheather must be showing a fair bit :-) Hopefully another academy draftee for Maguire to whinge about!

    Sheather must be showing a fair bit as he was a Cat B rookie elevated as an emergency replacement for the GWS game ahead of players like Clarke, Taylor and Gray and presumably as an injury replacement for Naismith ahead of O'Connor who must presumably wait for another injury on our list before he can be considered. What little I have seen has been impressive,

    Sheather has shown some really promising signs in the reserves games I've been watching. Very raw but has something about the way he plays.

    Good news on the resignings today - excellent to hear.

    Sheather is very similar to Wicks. Incredibly strong, highly courageous and a great reader of the play. His vision seems good, and skills improving. They got a steal there.
