00:00 - 00:03All 18 clubs gathered for the 2019 draft
00:04 - 00:05right here
00:05 - 00:07in the heart of Melbourne
00:08 - 00:12We went in with picks 33, 35, 61 and 64
00:12 - 00:15After academy bidding 61 and 64 moved up the order.
00:17 - 00:19We had all the picks we needed
00:19 - 00:21to draft some inside mids.
00:24 - 00:26Mein fuhrer
00:27 - 00:28Dodoro thought best
00:31 - 00:33Dodoro thought it best to draft talls
00:34 - 00:36A forward and a ruck
00:53 - 00:58Everyone who didn't want Rantall, Bianco, Chirgwin, Byrnes, get out.
01:13 - 01:15Another draft without an inside mid
01:15 - 01:17when the draft was full of inside mids.
01:18 - 01:23We let Collingwood draft Rantall when they already have a billion midfielders.
01:25 - 01:28We could have traded up to get Robertson
01:29 - 01:31but instead we trade down
01:31 - 01:34to avoid getting Byrnes and Chirgwin.
01:34 - 01:37I could give Dudoro a hat full of the names of inside mids
01:37 - 01:40and he would still end up picking talls.
01:40 - 01:42Mein fuhrer, we needed a developing forward.
01:42 - 01:46We need an inside mid to get the ball to the forward.
01:46 - 01:48Mein fuhrer, Dodoro saw value in the talls.
01:48 - 01:52A blindfolded Kevin Sheedy would have drafted better.
01:53 - 01:54Rantall was still there.
01:56 - 01:57Every other team in the AFL
01:57 - 02:00is drafting mids, developing their midfields
02:00 - 02:03while we mess around and do everything we can
02:04 - 02:08to avoid drafting any at all.
02:08 - 02:13Next year we'll be back to drafting skinny, unknown flankers
02:14 - 02:16who can potentially move into the midfield.
02:17 - 02:21I could take overlooking Rantall if we'd picked up someone like Chirgwin.
02:27 - 02:29At least we picked up a small forward
02:30 - 02:34Perhaps he can become an inside mid, bulk up a bit.
02:34 - 02:36It's the Essendon way.
02:41 - 02:42Another two talls.
02:43 - 02:4715 years of mediocrity and we do the same thing again.
02:48 - 02:53Carlton traded picks to get Sam Philp
02:54 - 02:56Schoenberg went earlier than expected
02:56 - 02:59but there were still mids there for him to pick
03:00 - 03:02and he went the talls instead.
03:04 - 03:07Don't cry. It's not as bad as the drugs saga.
03:14 - 03:16Heppell, Merrett and Shiel
03:19 - 03:23will have to be our starting mids again next year.
03:25 - 03:26At least Joe is staying
03:31 - 03:33We've kept him from Sydney for good.
03:40 - 03:46Imagine Rantall feeding the ball out to Shiel
03:46 - 03:49who then kicks it down Joey's throat.
03:53 - 03:56We need a new list recruitment team.
