    Very mixed opinions, I'm 50/50 pendant on how he sees out the year. Does he have one more year left on his contract Chilli?
    Agree Re: state ruck option.

    "If" Jol's retires and one of the young duo get's injured at any stage throughout the year then where does our ruck stocks as a club stand even with a state league player on the list in some form??

    Sorry to be confusing, I think this is the last year on his contract.

    I think he is out of contract end 2013.
    I would sign him for 1 more year.
    Assume he is waiting until year end to decide if he & the club want him to go around again.
    A lot depends on his body I guess.

    obviously not worth a 1st round pick but in saying that i think we would be after a solid player rather than a pick.. we are looking to improve our key defensive stocks.. havent seen too much of the pies this year, therefore i cant suggest too much, maybe Keeffe??

    Either extend or rookie him. having hudson and jolly developing the ruck stocks would be invaluable. plus jolly can come in as hudson did this year. plus we need a ruckman for the 2's.

    hudson will move to a fulltime ruck coach (retired for realz) and jolly can be the vfl ruck/depth heck he can help presti sell merch (whatever just keep him at the club)

    if daisy go's and we pick up yarran that will cancel our first round compensation so proble smart to pick a fast kid like yarran in the draft because yarran would choose westcoast eagles to play with he's mate nic-nat and head home to wa.

    Are Sydney that quick though??

    Jetta obviously is but he is out. As is Adam Goodes.

    Their midfield is Jack, Kennedy, Hanneberry, O'Keefe and Mitchell. None of those are slow, but none are lightnting quick either.

    They have good run off half back with McVeigh, Shaw and Malceski. However only Shaw is really quick.

    The difference with the Swans is how fit they are and how hard they run both ways. Footspeed isn't necessarily the key. They also move the ball really well by foot. They have very few poor users of the footy.

    I think Yarran is a good player, and could play a role in the middle or up forward. Can also play down back where he generates amazing run.

    However, I don't think we are a 'slow' team. I just think we are lacking in our ability to run defensively...and our ball movement is often sloppy due to having too many poor users. A lot of young players in the side as well that don't run out games well.


    I don't think we would seriously be in the game to snare Yarran because Blues will likely try and package him with Warnock or Hampson to snare a pick off GWS.

    Exactly, if Daisy does go & we do receive a mid 1st round pick as compensation, then we should keep it i.e do not bring in any free agents this year.

    The dog will need to win a lot of it's own ball though, better be a retriever.

    I think its the Swans ability to spread the play and get the ball to the outside is what makes them appear to be a fast team, when in reality they just move the ball very quickly to uncontested players in space. They tore the Hawks apart on the outside in last years GF.

    On Yarran, not all that interested as itll cost us too much. I'd rather take Dayle Garlett actually.. Truth is we should be looking at a mature ruck type or, as suggested above, a young inside type such as Geelong got with Caddy

    A really over rated player in my opinion (most Carlton players are over rated). If he is to come to Collingwood we would probably use him as a running flanker, like Leon Davis. Personally he isn't that good, is arrogant, cocky and has scum blood so I wouldn't take him.

    Why aren't people talking about a Watts/Bellchambers/Mumford

    Players that may be actually valuable next year.
