I think Gowers made a mistake in wanting to delay the presentation. Kennett was wrong to go to the media. Both men need to take a deep breath.
Bottom line. Kennett should get his life membership but it should've been done with a minimum of fuss.
It kind of pales in comparison with the "lend Croad to Freo" deal.
Out - two years of Croad. 2023 pick 10 (Riley Dunn).
In 2001 Pick 1, Luke Hodge. 2001 pick 36 Sam Mitchell.
Still, not every deal can be quite that good.
There is a kid from up in Tongala who goes alright. Great sporting family. Very gifted. Name of Harley Reid.
He could go top 5, I reckon. Maybe even higher?
We will find out in about 7.5 hours.
Orange may have been an appropriate color for this post.
Plans change as circumstances change.
Earlier in the year the club may have seen Calsher Dear as a rookie at best. Now it looks like he may attract a bid during the draft. We want him. Therefore we need to maximize both list spots and draft points.
There are heaps of people like me, who read and listen but have never watched these draftees playing "live".
We all have opinions but they are all based on hearsay.
I was looking for opinions from people who are more educated than I am.
What do the ITK's think of Will Dawson? 200 cm, versatile, but played his best footy as a KPD. Addresses a need for us and suits Sam Mitchell's preference for athletic ability and versatility.
Tipped to go in the 30-50 range. Could we trade F2 back into the draft to get him?
