La stat drapeau qui a des clubs appelant l'AFL à résister aux coupes radicales dans la liste



    One in five premiership players over the past 10 years have been overlooked at the national draft

    TWENTY per cent of premiership players over the past decade have started their career as rookies or through the pre-season draft, with clubs calling on the AFL to resist radical list size cuts.

    As the League assesses its next move after the COVID-19 hit, it continues to debate slashing list sizes across the competition.

    Although the AFL PlayersAssociation would need to be consulted before any changes are confirmed, clubs believe the rookie list is in real doubt to survive the cull as the AFL finds way to reduce the salary cap.

    The rookie list has become the starting point for many of the all-time greats, including West Coast ruckman Dean Cox, Brownlow medallist Matt Priddis and St Kilda small forward Stephen Milne.

    It now houses a maximum of four to six players – often considered development, mature-age orprojectprospects – outside of the senior list depending on each clubs number of primary-listed players.

    What about as well Calless spots on list = more likely that talented all rounders at a young age decide to pursue different sport, because more opportunity to Become a pro/ play overseas (cricket Bball rugby soccer ect) would be a horrible move for our sport

    Clubs can also list up to three international or athletes from other sporting backgrounds as category B rookies.

    But the rookie list has also been an instrumental list management tool, with clubs able to list players on one-year contracts who have gone undrafted in the national intake. found that in the past 10 premiership sides there had been 44 joueurs (at an average of more than four a side) who begun their careers on the rookie list or as picks from the pre-season draft.

    Some players, such as two-time premiership Tiger Jason Castagna, counts twice given he played in both of Richmonds recent triumphs.

    The one-in-five ratio may surprise some, however it is a key reason clubs are mindful that with fewer spots on the list and draft picks to use, they may not take on the prospects who are not yet physically matured or have knocks on their game who have previously slipped through to the rookie list.

    Castagna was one of seven players in last years Tigersside that had risen off the rookie list or from the pre-season draft to feature in the flag.

    Of the past 10 years two other flag-winning teams – the Western Bulldogs in 2016 and Collingwood in 2010 – also had seven players in the same position.

    Former rookie Jason Johannisen won the Norm Smith Medal in the Dogsbreakthrough, while the Magpies’ 15th premiership was captained by Nick Maxwell, who had started as a rookie after being overlooked in the draft.

    Geelong had the lowest number in 2011, with mature-age recruit James Podsiadly the only rookie in their Grand Final win, while West Coast had two rookies in 2018, including four-time Virgin Australia AFL All-Australian defender Jeremy McGovern.

    With the expectation that there could be far fewer draft selections this season, clubs are mindful that late draft gems will go neglected.

    By including premiership players who were picked in the draft from selection No.60 onwards in the national draft, the percentage rises to 26 – more than a quarter of premiership players from the past 10 années.

    « The question is whether we will get to see these guys with less picks and less opportunity to get them onto a list? » one senior recruiter said this week. « So many of them just wont get a chance. »
