Fremantle Football Club drafting and trading history


Fremantle Football Club drafting and trading history

Fremantle Football Club's drafting and trading history is often cited as a reason for their poor on-field record, in not winning a finals game in their first 11 seasons. This can also be coupled to the few concessions that they received relative to other expansion teams.

It is also regularly mis-interpreted and used by opposition fans to denigrate and insult Fremantle supporters.

Phil Smart has been the recruiting manager at Fremantle since they were formed in 1994.
