    No team should.

    Because no matter who good the number 1 draft pick may look, there is no guarantee it's going to transfer to the big time.

    Those players you mentioned are all proven superstars of the game, and they all have a few years left in them at the very least.

    Possibly a team like Melbourne that seriously needs to rebuild may consider it, but other than that I couldn't see any AFL team considering it.

    Discover now the best sport betting system:

    Too many people think of sports betting as just something they do in their past time. However, many people can see the potential that exists if you manage to have the right sports betting strategy and correct approach to betting in general. Are you sick of losing? Interested in finding out how to turn your luck around? Do you want to know which sports betting strategies stand to help you make the most from your betting?

    Any good strategy should allow you to place bets based on a systematic method. Of course there is always a random element or so called luck involved, but betting is all about stacking the odds in your favor. There should be no guess work involved or bets placed based on gut feelings. Betting is a business and it should be treated like one. Any money you use for betting needs to be separate from money you use for your daily life or anything else. How can you possibly expect to follow a strategy with money that was originally set aside to pay next week's rent with? You can't. This will help you to focus on the task of betting and remove any emotional strings attached to the money.

    So what makes a good strategy or what should you look for in a strategy before you decide to implement it? Any good strategy needs to have a positive expectancy. This means that in the long run you will win. The hit rate of the strategy needs to be above 50% for you to be able to profit in the long run. An ideal win rate should be between 60 to 70%, because you will need to cover the fees and other expensive associated with betting. Is it feasible to expect you'll be able to find a system that has a 100% win rate? No, it isn't. The best you can do is find a system that has a positive expectancy and stick with it. In the long run you will make more money than you can possibly lose.

    Keep whatever information and news you have about the teams as up to date as possible. Any changes in the teams makeup or factors that affect how the players play will great affect the potential outcome of a match. Make sure that you are constantly up to date on every aspect that affects the potential outcome of a match. Information is the key to winning at sports betting.

    The only teams i could see doing it would be Melbourne, Richmond and Essendon. All the other teams couldnt afford to lose their No.1 player, as it takes a few years for a draft pick to mature into an AFL star, and most clubs havn't got the luxury of waiting a few years for success.

    I'm an Adelaide supporter and as sad as it may sound ... I probably would approve of my club giving up Scott Thompson for the #1 Draft Pick. However, the pick would have to be a south aussie so they wouldn't leave us. It would also be good if the player was a forward. It's no secret that we are lacking good ones.
