Category Bullshit rookie.
There's a kid who's old man and family history is legendary around the game been officially unregistered for three years, playing a bit of soccer so he gets to his family club avoiding the draft and salary cap.
Then there's Colonwood's Tom Wilson played footy all his life growing up n fairly handy at it, chooses basket ball n again unregistered for three years, so no draft or salary cap as well.
Guess that means young Sutherland will be eligible to by pass the draft n salary cap in a couple of years if he doesn't quite make it as a cricketer. Maybe we should be getting someone to take him out for lunch occasionally just in case.
Pretty sure that Alex Keith bloke went to the Crow baits under the same dodgy ruling as well.
Another great AFL plan that's as dodgy as *smile*.

The old man has ties to Carlton. ... think he held the title of chief financial officer during a period of 'misadventure'.... for which they were subsequently penalised. On second thoughts... possibly not welcome!

Doesn't pass the good bloke test. Not for Tigerland, sorry.

Good luck to the young Hird lad. He shouldn't be held accountable for his ol man's errors.

Hawks have steadily changed their poo brown to what's now Guinness poo brown. Their colours are more ours than their original colours.
Yes that's been really annoying me for quite a while. Even Colonwood want to look like us at training; black and yellow gear.

The Dawks need to own their 'poos and wee.'

It's not really a matter of luck, more that he's got on an AFL list only due to his name and connections - unlike dozens of other kids who, despite actually playing the game and training/trying hard over the last 3 years, miss out. Not luck - privilege and prejudice.

Joey Daniher a chance to miss all of 2020 with his ongoing groin problem. Must be a hell of an injury.

To think Dodoro could have got what, was 2 x 1st round picks for him last year?
