    Game Day 2018 DRAFT - Christmas is early this year

    SOS indicated they were on the phone to Adelaide at pick 13 as Stocker started to look available so that probably did force our hand with McHenry one pick earlier

    Opinion 2018 Non-Crows #4: You say Potato, I say Portato (Cont in Part 5)

    I didn’t mind Lyons and was disappointed when we pushed him out. Yes he left GC for a better contract but clearly they were not looking to recontract him and didn’t have him in their plans moving forward so as I said “happy to let him go” You are not suggesting they wanted to hold on to him?

    Surely if it is 8/16 for 6 you are asking to get 24 back. Williams probably gets to 21/24

    And according to Champion data Lyons ranks 76 out of 85 for full time mid kicking efficiency. I reckon that is why they were happy to let him go - just like we were

    We're a Shit Show - Fagan is a Complete Fraud, We're Rotten to the Core

    And the AFL let us trade him out to their new franchise at Gold Coast - not sure the AFL are that stupid

    Correct the Saints have said pick 8 won’t do it - but given Max King will be at 6 if GC don’t take him - they still get who they probably take at 4 plus pick up a first rounder or early second. The gap between 8 and 6 is massive as they won’t get him at 8 Same with GC at 2/3. If we had 4 it is...

    The Wingard trade doesn’t really count in terms of pick 5. They got a solid deal for Polec with pick 11 and used 2 second rounders to upgrade to 6. If we had pick 23 and 30 and Saints accepted that to upgrade us from 8 to 4 we would think that was an awesome deal I do agree they are not the 2 I...

    I have read that from a few people. Why is that? I don’t recall Port shafting them previously and Dew is an ex Port man. Or do people think the China thing soured relations

    So with GC delisting Jarryd Lyons does that mean they now need another draft pick or DFA to fill their list - is that a sign they may be doing a deal (with us port or GWS)

    Port are in a position to potentially trade into picks 4-5 or 2-3 even. They wanted a shot at an elite talent and they have locked that in. That’s good trading. Highly unlikely they miss on one of the big local names and gave up a couple of second rounders to do it If they trade up to another...

    The Port deal with Freo was the second best trade of the year ( behind Hawks for Scully) - people bag them for the draft point loss but they essentially gave up 23 & 30 to move from 11 to 6. That’s great business

    Agree totally. If we want to trade up high on draft night we need to be closer than 8. In my view teams will only trade down in the draft if they are very confident they will still get who they originally wanted. Particularly Saints with Max King and Carlton with Walsh. The confidence of getting...

    That is posturing in the media. If they can still get their man at 6 and pick up another first rounder they will jump at it. We (and any other club) will need little incremental jumps to climb the list. You probably can't turn 4 into 8 but if GC involved then we could Mayberry turn 4 into 6

    Once again though - there are high first round picks and then there are late first round picks. By your reckoning a club wouldn't accept 8,13 and 16 for say pick 3 - so given Judd was pick 3,4 and 20 we are talking the equivalent of probably 7 picks between 8-20 for Judd - so surely 5 picks...
