Perhaps.You could say that guys like Ryan, Darcy and hamling fit is that speculative talent bundle as well
Unless it is Michael WaltersPerhaps.
I think his point was that we shouldn't be throwing medium range to low picks at talent that was taken very early but hasn't been able to show much more than glimpses or has slipped in the draft for reasons such as a potential injury concern.
It's a little bit before my time but I believe when he was drafted Michael Walters was a not so fit, fancy in bursts, true small-small forward without great speed.Unless it is Michael Walters
Don’t know if Palmer had many options to be honest.Palmer.
Or was he pushed, not young, not seduced, and to an expansion club with a massive salary cap; gee that is a lot of qualifiers.
Palmer was a great pick at 7.Don’t know if Palmer had many options to be honest.
Knee reconstruction, ball burner and a bit of FIGJAM about him.
I reckon he was one of worst picks - especially at pick 7.
Yeah, as Taylor said, they didn’t have known injury concerns when they came to the club. Mora and Apeness did too when we drafted them. I think one of Sturt or Valente do. If they have had a history of injuries I’d be much more cautious now.You could say that guys like Ryan, Darcy and hamling fit is that speculative talent bundle as well
Brisbane have our pick #44 this season, that would seem fair for a guy who has played under twenty games in three seasons standing at 175cm.Shai Bolton what is he worth ? Suggested a late second round/early third over on the main trade board and got laughed at.
Agree to disagree.Palmer was a great pick at 7.
His running ability and smarts made him special but the knee killed that.
Like Pina and Garcia also.Keen to hear people's thoughts on this end of year scenario...
OUT: S Hill, B Hill, E Langdon
IN: T Kelly, J Martin, late 1st round
Draft: Henry, Robertson, Taylor
I see 2007 as the last year that kicking didn't really matter. If you could out run, you could win.Agree to disagree.
2007 draft was a great one in hindsight- a lot players still playing.
Just remember watching Palmer in the Under -18’s at Subiaco and thought, gee he gets it, but nearly every kick was helicopter punt.
Ran all day, tackled but had below average disposal and quite poor sharing the ball.
Besides that he was best mates with Chris ‘ the biter’ Masten.
I'm less keen on trading this year. Of course you grab Coniglio if available, but then I would be cautious. I would trade for Kelly or Martin if someone is leaving, but not overpay.Coniglio - FA
Kelly - Our 1st round pick (assuming it is around pick 6 to 8)
Jack Martin - Mid 2nd rounder
Shai Bolton - Mid 2nd rounder
Callum Ah Chee - 3rd or 4th round pick, or pick swap
Who should we target and why?
For me it is Coniglio (Free agent, A grade player), Jack Martin and Shai Bolton (Quick flankers, can play a bit through the midfield. Will improve our skills, and are both dangerous in the forward line.)
Callum Ah Chee - I think he has talent, but at GC he has not got the most out of it. I think given 12 months of training, he will turn into to a B+ players.
Kelly - If we believe we can push for top 6 with out him, then you sign him and trade away a top 8 pick. If not then it is pass, due to the cost
