    If you’re an old man, then you’re welcome.
    I would’ve preferred to see more whinging in your response however. Far too sensible and tame for this thread ;)

    What the actual F***

    https://www.afl.com.au/news/467915/how-a-little-known-clause-could-give-crows-two-top-five-picks

    Not only do the AFL allow draft tampering by permitting a club to take picks they don't own based on the arbitrary notion that two lower ranked picks are worth the same as one higher ranked pick, but they also let the same club go into pick debt when doing so.

    Based on this logic, any club could just call "dibs" on the top four picks of a given "super draft" and exchange all their lower-ranked picks in that draft, plus their picks in the next draft, for the privilege to do so.

    How is this even possible???

    If you don't have a pick, then you can't take that selection. And you definitely can't go into debt. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    "Fremantle enters this year's draft with a 265 draft-point deficit that needs to be made up in the first-round after they went into the red last year to secure Hayden Young, Caleb Serong and Academy prospect Liam Henry in the first round."

    Here's an "ole man whinge".....stop using acronyms that us older generation have no idea of their meaning....;););)

    Too Long. Didn't Read. Frequently used acronym by lazy, ignorant people in Internet Forums, where their urge to type something exceeds their ability to read ...

    Yeah, cool. Thanks Tom Langdon and Jack Steven. I'll just add you to the list with Paddy McCartin, Kade Kolodjashnij, Colin Sylvia, and Clay Smith as players retiring before my plans for you. Love this time of year.
