Gumnut Geelong wants to trade draft picks... 2 weeks 3 days ago #155

Call me cynical but when are the top 10 picks known behind the scenes? The AFL has invited a group of 16 kids apparently who are the most likely but when they all rock up on stage to recieve their new team jumpers with names already plastered on the back I'm not believing for one moment that the top 10 aren't already known and so I'm just a little cynical about any "live"trading that supposedly occurs on night 1 of the draft.
The second night's proceedings is more of a raffle so live trading is definitely unrehearsed but the first night, I think all the kids already know where the're headed next year.

After this huge build up to the draft at what time can I expect our picks to be posted on dockerland?

Nice conspiracy theory Gumnut but any name and number can be plastered onto any jumper in seconds.
It is done every stage of the TDF at the presentations with team sponsors and the like.
Having said that - they dont do that until later in the night anyway so they have plenty of time.
They usually just get presented a blank jumper

Demo1's dream is to see the printing presses rolling out the WEG posters after the final siren on Grand Final day.
