The Greater Western Sydney Giants continue to send shivers up the collective spine of every other team in the AFL. Despite losing two talented defenders early in their Sunday contest against the Western Bulldogs, the Giants rolled to their sixth win in a row, outlasting a plucky Bulldog outfit by 25 points at Spotless Stadium. GWS now sits in third on the AFL ladder in a 3 way log-jam at 7-2 for the year.

The Rookie Draft was held November 27 with some delisted players getting a second chance. Some players, such as un-registered or international, were pre-nominated under AFL rules. The number in front of the name is the draft selection, the original club in parentheses, followed by age, height and weight.

The National Draft was held on November 24. For this draft, the AFL developed a system and software to place points value on each draft pick. This allowed other clubs to use their allocated "selection points" to bid on designated academy and father-son players. The club for which that player was designated would then have to review their draft points and match the competing club's bid. The bidding and points system shuffled some draft selections. Recruiters used the software to help determine how many "points" they had to play with.

Team changes, rookies and the rest

The preseason draft was held on December 16, 2008. It represented the last chance for players to enter or -re-enter AFL ranks for 2009. The biggest story of the day was former Eagle Ben Cousins being picked up by the Richmond Tigers. Players and fans welcomed him with open arms and Cousins promised to repay their faith. He told a massive throng of reporters that he was clean and that his drug rehabilitation was progressing well.

Changes of all off season sorts

HAWTHORN
In early November, Shane Crawford announced his retirement. Crawford, 34, had been considering his decision for some weeks before informing Coach Alistair Clarkson and football manager Mark Evans. Crawford suffered from knee tendinitis for much of this past season, but was recently cleared by medical staff to play on in 2009 and had agreed in principle to a new contract.

In making his announcement, Crawford said he had achieved everything he had set out to do in his career and that the 2008 premiership was the highlight. He also said ending his career on such a high was the way to leave the game. He thanked the club for their support and said he was proud to have been a one-club player and would look back on his career with fond memories.
