    Better or Worse: The Offseason Report Card - Adelaide, Brisbane, Carlton

    Better or Worse: The Offseason Report Card - Adelaide, Brisbane, Carlton

    The AFL lists are all but finalised, and we've been able to reflect on the multitude of different player movement types, both together and separately. We heard about all of delistings and retirements, free agency, trades, and drafting. We have reflected on it for months and reviewed it all to give you the most comprehensive assessment of your offseason.

    Due to the long and sometimes meandering nature of The Offseason Report Card series, we are recording 3 clubs per episode. They will be recorded ahead of time to ensure we have episodes for when Sean is on paternity leave, and released in alphabetical order.

    Trade Review Part 2 - Live Trading: All Trades made on draft nights

    Trade Review Part 2 - Live Trading: All Trades made on draft nights

    New microphones are online. Let us know what you think.
    Live trading is something that we still don't feel is analysed of scrutinised heavily enough. If some of these trades were made during the trade period, a List Manager would have to explain to the Head of Football why they want to lose their job so badly. Alas, it's not always as simple as we make it, and there is a lot more information available at the time of the trade so that must be considered.

    This makes up Part 2 of the 2 Part Trade Review where we look at all of the trading that's occurred and make an assessment on the period as a whole.

    Trade Review Part 1 - Pre Draft: All Trades up until the draft

    Trade Review Part 1 - Pre Draft: All Trades up until the draft

    We're back, and hopefully there will be no more intermission. We wanted to do a full trade review as most of them happen immediately after the player exchange period, and exclude all trades that happen between then and the draft, some of which were fairly major. This will be Part 1 of the 2 Part Trade Review where we look at all of the trading that's occurred and make an assessment on the period as a whole.

Brilliant podcast

The most thoughtful, well researched football podcast I have listened too. Rare to find a podcast that actually has comments worth listening too on freo. Thanks boys!

Best AFL podcast

You guys are awesome. Loving the depth of analysis. The AFL and clubs need to listen to some of your suggestions too.

Mock draft episode. BIG TICK

Loved the mock draft fellas.

Only thing I’d say is that you got the order of St. Kilda and Brisbane’s (effectively pick 4 and 5 out of order).

Saints hold pick 4 currently after the Lynch compensation, Brisbane hold pick 5.

Think that changes the thought process on which King twin ends up at which club.
