If we go after a Suns player, screw the Suns, offer them a bare minimum, that's what they have always done to us
There are 3 there we should put big contracts in front of at the end of this year for them to consider next year with an eye to snaring 1 or maybe 2 at the end of 2022. Rankine, lukosius and hollands

Holland's?

Yet to kick a ball in any comp yet since the draft.

I disagree with moving the 2022 first to this year as I want that for a crack at Rankine or Lukosius when they fall out of contract at the end of next season (assuming they don't sign on). I hope that something along those lines might be on the cards and would want to make damn sure we have the draft capital to make it happen
If Rankine and or Luko nominate us and GC get pushed into the corner with a below value pick or lose them to the draft, maybe we won't need a super early 1st rounder. Could an early 2022 1st be turned into 2 later firsts?

Maybe we wouldnt actually have to give up a 2022 1st though..

We simply trade our 2022 1st to a team that has a 2021 1st around pick 16 and their 2022 1st rounder..

Bit like what we did with Carlton when they wanted Stocker..

Given the Suns were prepared to draft Hollands and rehabilitate him from a long term injury from which he is still yet to play, I can't see Hollands leaving the Suns for many seasons.
I know what you are saying, although he was always projected to go very high - he was considered by us for pick 1, so it might be a stretch to say that just because GC took him and were prepared to rehab him that he owes them everything. Any club that took him would be doing the same.

I am just thinking that if there was an option to lure him here at the end of his 1st contract by paying overs, it would still be a cheaper option than trying to trade up to go after Horne in this draft

That is true..although it still might be cheaper (holistically in terms of overall impact on the club) to go after him for the end of next year that it would be to have to try and trade up to get Horne if the club really wanted that top end mid

Yeah don’t think the VFL would be letting that one through...

We supported Chloe Scheer through knee reconstructions but she has left us.
Players will move if the reasons are advantageous to their career.

We let Dangerfield spend the first year of his contract home in Modeware.

That worked out well

This tells me the ACL is on the worst end, hence why he slide so much.

Maybe draft his brother Ollie next year?

That's probably our best shot at getting a Hollands' on our list.

Exactly. Clubs are obligated to support players through knee recos, players don't usually do their knees around the house, they do them at training and on the field in service of the club. Once that's done, the ledger is even and as long as clubs have the power to cut a player whenever they like, players should have the ability to leave whenever they like.

This is a good point which I must admit I often forget. I'm disappointed to lose Scheer after we spent the best part of two years helping her to rehab her knee, but I need to remember she only did the knee injury in the process of delivering us a flag to begin with.

So listening to VB on SEN he said that the plan will be to continue playing McAsey forward in the SANFL toward the backend of the season. Surely at some point we have to pick an end and stick to it right? Like if he is ever going to actually play AFL again then he shouldn't really be used as a swingman, no? I don't get it. Someone change my mind because it's baffling to me. If they want to play Frampton down back in the SANFL to give him a last chance at AFL footy that's fine but why wouldn't Fish be promoted or, in the case of Frampton being promoted, continued to be played down back.

Others have said this but McAsey moves more like a natural forward in the footage I've seen. Looks impressive on the lead. Maybe that's why he went as high in the draft as he did.
