if he's twice as talented as taylor then he's a potential dead set superstar of the game.

The only comparison that matters with taylor though, is his attitude and likelihood of becoming a long term player.

If it true that he cant even be bothered to turn up to interviews with clubs it seems his attitude is along the lines of taylor, which means a bust.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

perhaps Dayle has been inspired by the alan richardson method of gaining employment

Get him second pick

Agreed, nothing to lose. Paid the same for Taylor in a supposedly stronger draft and this kid's at least twice as talented.

Anyone got mail on when he will go?
North Melbourne made early contact but recruiting experts believe Hawthorn, who Garlett supports, has long held the most serious interest.

It's been an improved 2013 for Garlett, but by no means perfect.

Again, he has failed to front to some interviews and many clubs believe he is more likely to go bust than boom.

But nearly every club spoke to him this year and, while most have again put a line through his name, some feedback was positive.

"They tell me they're interested or they wouldn't be meeting me,'' said Garlett, who is still training strongly.

Apparently we're not interested.

If the club's not interested, then their due diligence is good enough for me. Will be keeping an eye on him should another club pick him though.

if hes there at pick 50 surely hes worth taking a punt on.im with greg harding hes not done a thing wrong other than miss an interview since the kick in the arse of not being drafted.

i think as a club we have shown we can handle so called trouble makers a edwards, cousins, polak, and martin. yes we have had some misses over the yrs with indigenous kids but just because you fail once or tewice does it mean you stop trying.

in all honesty i couldnt give a fat rats arse when it comes to what they do off field as long as its within the law.
the only criteria id have is he stays out of trouble he continues to train hard and playing senior footy his major goal. all the rest is just media codswallop and political correctness.

its got nothing to do with political correctness, its about having the strength of character to make the grade.

The days of talented footballers going about it half arsed and getting by on talent alone are long gone. Even when those days were with us there were plenty of blokes who ended up in the wasted talent basket.

I know its hard for naturally talented sportsmen to comprehend, but the reason why some players with limitations go on to play 100+ games while others with much more talent fade into oblivion is due to whats between their ears.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

We did a lot of homework on him. Definitely was considered thoroughly.

I understand your sentiments al

But the other extreme is picking plodders, lonergan. Thomas...

When will the days of targeting blokes with the right stuff mentally but seemingly talentless

Most clubs now don't want to be forced to be 24/7 babysitters of what are meant to be young adults and use up club resources worrying about one player at the expense of the rest of the list. As al has said, the days of getting drafted on natural talent alone as gone.

If anyone doubts how important it is that we draft a very good small forward one day have a look at one of the best we have ever had. We have not had a very good small forward since this bloke, I used to love it when the ball went near him. I would love to pick up Garlett and have him doing what this bloke did. At the end of the day though, eventually, we need to draft a small forward capable of doing it the way this bloke did. King is ok but not as electrifying and Nahas had one good year, other than that he was a waste.
