    It's all terribly exciting. Anyone seen any indication when they will hold the draft if so?

    I think May would be possible and have heard talk of pre-season starting in June if late August is the start of the next season.

    For all of the AFL's recent enthusiasm late this week the lack of a CBA for season 7 and beyond and lack of consultation and agreement from the players and the AFLPA makes me think that am August 2023 start for season 8 with a season 7 start between October/December is another possible outcome.

    Yes, they've made a lot of noise about it considering they don't have that agreement yet. A bluff to get players to agree on a middle ground instead of suggesting October/November in the first place?

    Its an incredible team isn't it! A lot of these players are already dominating the competition, or close to it.

    Studies have shown that mens AFL players generally are in their prime performance between the ages of 25-28, with rucks a little later. I wonder if it is different for women players?
    It will take a long time to do a proper study I think, because investment in the junior development for girls has improved a lot in recent years, so the young players in the league have had that benefit over some of the older ones, and i think it would be best to wait for that to level out before analysing peak years etc.

    You definitely can see the difference between the men’s (developing) and women’s (close to All Oz) under 22 teams.

    My main nitpick is they once again have included at least one player who was 22 in December (Conti), would prefer a strict 31 December cutoff, or rename it to 22 under 23.
