AFL Daily Dip: October 18th, 2012


Following on the heels of our 2012 AFL Delegates series - where we broke down the players each organization was sending to the desert – I wanted to do a brief daily recap of the AFL action from the previous day. You could consider it a “junior” version of what we did this summer with the Prospect Pulse/Standout Sprouts series with a few minor changes. These pieces are meant to be “quick hits” to supplement other content I will publish each day, though I reserve the right to add thoughts on various players from time to time.
