    Word is Stevens isn’t actually NGA eligible for us.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    The list I posted was updated a month ago yesterday. Things must have changed fairly recently.

    Western Bulldogs to pay hefty price for next ‘Buddy Franklin’ Jamarra Ugle-Hagan should draft discounts be scrapped
    Sam Landsberger, Herald Sun
    November 25, 2019 7:33pm

    Western Bulldogs shape as the biggest loser if club power wins out and the AFL scraps the generous discounts applied to Next Generation Academy prospects before the 2020 draft.

    Carlton great Andrew McKay completed a review into the bidding system in July this year and, while the 20 per cent discount was untouched, the Herald Sun understands it is certain to again come under the microscope after this week’s national draft.

    The Dogs have priority access to Jamarra Ugle-Hagan through their NGA next year and without the discount they would have to pay a hefty price.

    “He’s arguably going to be as good as Buddy Franklin, and very arguably heading towards pick No. 1,” one recruiter said on Monday.

    “He’s already committed to the Bulldogs. He’s mercurial, gifted in the air, got good agility, good size although he lacks body strength at the moment.

    “He kicked 10 for Scotch in the APS a couple of times last season, so when they start kicking 10 you start taking notice.”

    Next year’s draft, will be extremely compromised with an abundance of academy and father-son prospects headlining the pool.

    One expert said 22 of his top 40 prospects were already tied to a club.

    Multiple mooted changes have been suggested to the AFL, both to amend the bidding system and to toughen up the eligibility rules.

    The most common one is to either reduce the discount or have it only apply after pick 30, which would ensure that elite talents are paid for at market value.

    Most clubs are happy for discounts to be applied to all father-sons, enjoying the romance of that rule.

    Some also believe that the current rule is fair for the northern academies run by GWS, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast because it is important to nurture players in rugby heartland.

    But there is widespread frustration at the potential to rort the system.

    There were suggestions on Monday that one wealthy club had started relocating talented juniors into its zone.

    “NGAs were designed to help disadvantaged kids and grow the talent pool of non-football families and backgrounds,” one scout said.

    “Not for clubs to scoop up already-talented footballers who were always going to make it.”

    But Adelaide has access to midfielder James Borlase next year despite his father, Darryl, playing in four SANFL premierships for Port Adelaide.

    Borlase played Auskick in primary school but qualifies for the Crows’ NGA because he was born in Egypt.

    The AFL does not count Darryl Borlase’s Escort Cup appearances, reducing his senior games tally to 177 and below the 200 required to qualify as a father-son prospect for Port.

    Collingwood’s zone covers the rich Oakleigh region and the Magpies are poised to secure Reef McInnes next year after taking Isaac Quaynor last year.

    The Magpies were able to match bids for Quaynor (No. 13) and father-son Will Kelly (No. 29) with a suite of picks beyond 40, which also didn’t sit well with rivals.

    “If you cop a bad academy area you might not get anybody out of it,” one club said.

    “It’s almost gone back to zoning plus some draft picks.”

    Gordo will fight it.

    UPDATE: Landsberger has just come out on Twitter and stated the AFL mistakenly gave out incorrect information and discounts will still apply in 2020. The article has now been updated on HS website.

    Whirlwind of emotions haha.

    They can't change the process after the trade period as we might have positioned ourselves differently.

    I don't think they can change the rules for next years draft

    Good news. https://twitter.com/samlandsberger/s...252133376?s=21

    The AFL mistakenly gave out the wrong information today. But credit to them for putting their hand up straight away and apologising. This is a now a significant win for the Western Bulldogs, and for every club with gun prospect tied to them in 2020
