    Wasn't Josh Thomas a part of Gold Coast's TAC Cup team back in the day? Was there a fallout?

    Not familiar with the story but yeah, wanted to go in the draft due to not wanting to play in GC. Dayne Beams sorta situation I think? Hopefully he's come a bit around since it was nearly a decade ago.

    Correction - Josh Thomas is an Unrestricted Free Agent. But Pies fans tells me an extension is on the cards for him. I hope we at least make the phone call.

    Fair over pay - you could use a 2nd rd pick to get Brendan Ah Chee and Josh Thomas - both would be worth picks in the 40s IMO

    If he's smart he will see the writing on the wall - the magpies have the deepest midfield in the comp. Only getting a game as Pendles, Greenwood, Wells and Varcoe are out. Plenty of opportunities back on the Coast...

    It's a while ago now , but I'm pretty sure we wanted beams , Thomas , Dixon and smith to sit out there first year then join us , beams and Thomas took there chance in the draft while Dixon and smith sat out and joined us.

    Which makes sense. Dixon and Smith are talls another year to develop would have really helped them there always was less competition for them. Beams and Thomas would have been more ready for AFL. Can't blame the recruiting for that.

    Whether it's Clayton, development or culture the reality is apart from May and Lynch none of our players have developed into stars.

    Swallow, Matera, Prestia, Gorringe, OCockface, Martin, Day, Bennell, Garlett, Lonergan, AChee, Miller, KK the list goes on, none of these guys have developed into the players their draft position indicated. They can't all be duds so I lean more to the coaching / development team rather than the selections when I look at whose fault it is.

    Clean the joint out

    Swallow was brillant during the 2014 season then injuries killed him same with O'Maggot. They both devloped well but both suffered knee injuries that can happen to anyone.

    Just hard to know the long term impact of below average facilities, high performance and medical.
    Prevention of some of these injuries if they were fitter and stronger? Hard to know.

    But I still remember the players talking about how JC and his staff had them on individual programs! That was only 2 off-seasons ago. Jeepers!

    Only 1 thing we know for sure. Evidence is clear. Club stuffed up badly somewhere. Most probably everywhere.

    Wouldn't think so - we need quality senior players and already have 4 picks in the top 25

    Can't see it

    Surprised at the quality of the offer tbh, better than most opposition supporters :p

    Is Lonergan likely to be shopped? What would his value be?


    Cheers guys

    Likely to be shopped around, probably a late 2nd IMO.

    Lots of talk here in SA that Charlie Cameron is keen to head to Brisbane. Be very silly if we're not in his ear about our new facilities.

    Lonergan?
    Not worth anything of real value.

    Evidence is clear. He is struggling to get a consistent game for the Suns. And when he does play he can't kick. Still young enough but not as young or promising as a draft pick.

    Any trade would be for a pick worthless to the Suns or a swap for a similar player who is also struggling (best outcome for the Suns, who need mature bodies).

    Agree with the lack of development part but am prepared to give them one more pre-season in the new facilities, which we didn't have access to until Feb. this year iirc. I'll be very disappointed next season if we continually get pushed off the ball as easily as this year, and if we also continue to have our tackles so easily broken...

    they are the only two with any mongrel about them.

    do you think there's a correlation there somewhere?
