If you have a weak stomach, you probably shouldn't read this....

Nathan Fyfe - “My favourite players as a junior were James Hird and Matthew Richardson.

“I was actually a passionate Richmond supporter when I was younger and my least favourite team was the Dockers – I absolutely hated them.

“This was to the extent that at the AFL draft camp, two weeks before the AFL draft, I was trying desperately to get in front of the Richmond recruiters, but they weren’t interested in me at all.

“Then I heard Freo was interested so I was trying to do everything possible so they wouldn’t pick me up.

“But I ended up there and my journey with Freo has been fantastic so far, with the highlight being playing in the 2013 grand final.”

this might just push some over the edge
“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."

To think in 2009 we could have drafted Martin, Fyfe, Allen Christensen or Sam Reid and Ben Stratton. Unfortunately you can do this every year with hindsight, but seriously it would be nice to draft more than 1 capable player each year.

Astbury still hasn't made it IMO, nor Griffiths.

If we'd taken Fyfe over Griffiths, Reid over Astbury, and Stratton over Dea we'd probably be looking at a top-4 finish (if we could develop them as effectively).
