  • Why only the Victorian clubs? Says it all about your parochial coverage. It is the AFL now, not the VFL!

    • Fair comment and demonstrates the mindset of many Victorians. Having said that, as a West Australian, there is nothing sweeter than when an interstate team wins the Grand Final. Tit for tat which makes up the tapestry of the AFL which needs rivalries otherwise it would be one big yawn.

  • I thought that the Bulldogs were also a Victorian club, but it appears that we don't get the opportunity to vote for their trade picks. Poor old Footscray, still unfashionable in the eyes of many Vics!

    • Footscray isn't listed because they didn't do anything during the trade week.

    • Yes, we did leave off the Bulldogs as they were (relatively) quiet during the trade period. But we take your point on board! Worth noting also that Carlton didn't feature in the poll.

  • Not as convinced as some that the Pies have done well. Lynch is a poor call -- too old to compete around the ground with younger rucks when the Pies really needed a more agile ruck to complement the ageing Jolly.

    Meanwhile, they lost Dawes who had lost form but surely not the ability to actually play the game?

    Clint Young is injury prone and has struggled for form at Hawthorn in recent years. Meanwhile, Jordan Russell, who is obviously useful judging by his B&F finishes, was barely able to get a game in a sub-standard Carlton this year.

    They'd want to use those first round draft picks cleverly.

    • But they needed to move Dawes and Wellingham out to keep under the salary cap due to Cloke taking all the cookies from the jar. So their hand was forced a little.

      So to get Young and Lynch as cheaper replacements and to load up on 3 late first round/early 2nd round draft picks is a pretty good result.

      Especially as this draft has a bit of talent in it and the early picks are dominated by GWS. Who will probably start drafting for need over best available very early on. ie decent players will slide.

  • Collingwood would still finish on top of this poll even they took no part in the trade period.
