Many, many years ago?!?!
And who gives a fark where Jack and Rampe were playing, they were way down the rookie draft list.
You seem to be suggesting that the days of the third round and beyond picks ever becoming decent players is over.
Everybody else would suggest you're talking out your arse again
2010 and 2008 are a long time ago in football terms. You obviously know nothing about current recruiting methodology.
Rampe was playing VFL in Melbourne and declined offers returning to play crap local football in Sydney.
Jack was never going to leave Sydney hence no better offers.
Obviously there will be a few diamonds outside the first 36 picked but nowhere near the numbers in the Hird years etc.
Why do you think that Swans and GWS quickly established academies ?
Wouldn't be to acquire top 36 players for low draft picks by any chance. Yet more Sydney friendly rules like COLA.
Bullies have been so lucky with all the male children born to their past champions. Another way of getting cheap picks.
Thank god SOS poked out 3 champions.
I am mid table mediocrity !
