    Team for 2022

    Yes. That’s why we should have considered drafting a genuine KPD if available. Hope Gardner can stay on the park and go to the next level!

    Can we retrospectively apply any of the points we gained to our GF score? I know Darcy is more important, but just want to know for academic purposes.

    I’m pretty disappointed with that trade period. Hope Martin can keep fit and/or Sweet improves significantly next season. I don’t understand how we came to the view that it was adequate to rely on 35 y/o whose body has broken down and a 3 gamer who wasn’t picked late in the season when were...

    With respect, you don’t know who is available because you are some random person on an Internet forum who doesn’t work in the industry. You wouldn’t have a clue (as would I). So why should you and I waste our time debating who is and who is not available in your scenario? Sometimes players...

    Pick 17 is (was) only one of many assets we could have traded. Try to broaden your horizon. Narrow thinking doesn’t get you far in life.

    I agree mate but tread carefully on here about Darcy! Some get quite upset about any suggestion of going down an alternative route…

    Would you trade our 2022 first round pick for Ben McEvoy? I don’t think I would. He is 33 in July.

    To be bold and secure a good quality ruck we need to give something meaningful up. The board isn’t prepared to give Darcy up, which means picks are out of the question, so what players do we trade for a good quality ruck?

    Is there any chance North nominate Darcy as number 1 instead of Daicos and we have another JUH situation? I hope we don’t have Darcy as a number 1 pick. The media and public pressure are ridiculous and unfair on the player and to a lesser extent the club.

    Too raw. Can we play r1 2023?

    No worries. Happy to agree to disagree on that one. 👍 I would go for the 9/10 ruck if there is one out there.

    The trade period is before the draft. Not the other way around. We don’t need to pass on Darcy first. Obviously I don’t have the intel that those who work in the industry do. All I’m saying is that (if it was my call) I would say to Power go out there and use pick 17 and other picks to secure...

    Maybe we will secure Darcy and win the flag next year/year after or whatever, and Darcy will be a gun. Happy to be wrong. Hope the club and our players do well no matter what. My view is that we need a good ruck to win a flag next year. Even in 2016 Roughead and TBoyd proved that when they...

    Talk and expeditions are just that. To be honest I don’t think you can say that no top quality rucks are on offer. You need to work in the industry and plenty of players get dislodged year after year unexpectedly. We don’t know what’s out there. I trust and have faith in Sam Power, although...

    Your second paragraph is sort of my point. Even if Darcy is a gun ruck, he may be a gun in a poor team in 5 years. Back to the future for us? I would rather use that pick now to secure a good ruck in his prime who can play in a very good team next year. If that’s possible. I don’t know if it...

    I’m prepared to take that gamble if pick 17 helps us get the players we need to win a flag next year. It’s not often that you go into a season with a legitimate chance, so I just want to maximise that chance and I concede that it might be at the expense of the future.

    I love the father-son rule and I want another Luke Darcy too. But the Club is bigger than any individual and I think we should be recruiting for the now. Just my opinion. Maybe Darcy will be a star. But I seriously doubt he contributes to us winning a flag with this current midfield at its...

    I get your point, but how many TAC games have there been in the last 24 months? The recruiters are throwing darts in the dark to some extent this year.

    Depends what else you get for the pick though. I’m saying that IF we can get a ready made good quality ruck, then I would go down that route. Emphasis on READY MADE and GOOD. I know I’m in the minority, but we need to fix the ruck problem next year. Otherwise this midfield may not compete for...

    Who on here has seen Darcy play in the last two years? I mean how many great games has he played and against who and what league? Most of the junior footy in Victoria hasn’t transpired. That pick 17 might deliver us a ready made player and a flag next year. I don’t care about 5 years time...
