Well it is here once again, well it is tomorrow, the AFL draft.Tomorrow some young boys/men, will have their dreams fulfilled.Others will have them shattered.
Some will have a sleepless night tonight in anticipation of tomorrows out come.
Some will already know their place of destination, other will sweat and maybe have to wait until either Thursday or Friday to see if they make a list some where.
Some Mums will be as sleepless tonight as the sons. Where will my boy be next week.Though they will be hoping that their boy doesn't have to travel to the other side of the country, they will be as proud as punch that their boy has made it onto an AFL list.
Yes, the boys will have made it onto a list,but not made it as an AFL player.There will be a load of blood sweat and tears, before some of them can say" I made it".For some many years of hard work.
For our club,the FFC, we can only hope that the recruiters select for the club, the best players.Players that we need and that will give their all.
I can hear it already, we should have taken this one.We should have taken that one, We should have taken so and so.But the main thing is that we get what is best for the team.
We can not take them all.
To those selected, I wish them all the very best, regardless of which club they arrive at.
