Almanac Footy: The 2021 AFL Draft, Night Two




Almanac regular and WAFL expert Les Everett is possibly the happiest man around today after Subiaco’s Greg Clark and South Fremantle’s Jesse Motlop were picked up  by the West Coast Eagles and Carlton respectively on Night Two of the 2021 AFL Draft. Just last week Les nominated Clark and Motlop as WAFL players he hoped would get a call-up.

We’ll do our best to publish two books in the lead-up to Christmas 2021. The Tigers (Covid) Almanac 2020  and the 2021 edition to celebrate the Dees’ magnificent premiership season(title is up for discussion at the moment!). These books will have all the usual features – a game by game account of the Tigers and Demons season – and will also include some of the best Almanac writing from these two Covid winters.

    Well it’s a long time since I have been happy with a Magpie draft, the horrors of Scharenberg Freeman and the dreaded Dom Sheed in 2013 still haunt me.

    After the trading of 2021 pick 2 for 2 second rounders plus all the merde of last year’s trades, the last thing I expected was to get Daicos at pick 4 and still have enough change left over to get Arlo Draper, a bloke that Knightmare rated at pick 20, at pick 45! And he’s a midfielder, not a half bleep back flank, nor second string ruckman, players we need like a Carlton premiership…

    Speaking of Showponies, old habits die hard. I notice that they selected one player in the draft, all the rest are trades. I would put this to the Carlton boyos – how many premierships has Carlton won using the national draft, as opposed to trade ins like Spalding and Williams. I would argue none, possibly ’82, Ross Ditchburn, but it is for Mr Butler and other Showie supporters to wrestle with a very vexed question.
