    There will also be kids who fall through the cracks completely and stand out next year. 2021 should be stacked.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I know we don't have a lot of ability to do it but if we could snag a couple of future second rounders for next year that could be very useful.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    Given this change for next season:

    NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft
    The AFL today proposed an alternative model to the NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft for 2021 that would allow Clubs to fill vacant list spots or replace inactive players on a monthly basis.

    Details of that proposal are as follows:

    - Between the end of the SSP and prior to Round One, undrafted and other eligible players can opt into being upgraded to an AFL list during the 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.
    - Clubs can then nominate to upgrade a previously undrafted or eligible player to their respective Rookie List at three different periods throughout the 2021 season (eg. following Round Four, Round Eight, and Round 12).
    - In the instance that the same player is nominated by two or more Clubs, the player will go to the team lower on the ladder under a rolling process (eg. if a Club selects a player, that Club goes to the back of the line).
    Will clubs leave list spots open to trial players over the pre-season, or even go early on players that impress early next year in other competitions?

    Gee, I can see a lot of manipulating by clubs and players

    It is a media article and anything is ok that supports their premise.

    They sure did. All dual club players, only Plowman still on a list.
