It will end up being at their detriment IMO - especially if they don’t win it this year.
Guys pushing through looking for a payday they feel they deserve will have to accept lesser deals to stay. That opens the door for the other vic clubs to start poaching. Or the interstate clubs for players of their state, as freo did with conca.

If they win more flags than it’s all worth it though. A great balancing act, is list management!
Richmond has far more room than people would believe, and Conca was always going to leave. He wasn't getting a game with us by then end of the season and probably wouldn't have this season - even with all the injuries.

No doubt we wanted a mid with the first pick and I melted for not taking Higgins (I thought he projected as a mid :rolleyes:) but whether we took Allen or Brander first was going to appear equally reachy. I think a few people expected us to take Allen and people were generally open to that as there was a silly assumption that he was going to be the BBIMWBLF

So whether we took Allen first or Brander, wouldn’t have made any real difference. I still don’t really get why we took two KPFs with our first two picks given we were never going to have the space to develop them (we still had Waterman to squeeze in somewhere and had traded in Vardy).

It’s hindsight 101 of course but if it’s all looking more and more likely that we will ultimately pay a lot for Kelly
Maybe Brander will become the BBIMWBLF!

Similar height to Cripps but a more smooth mover. Menagola and Bontempelli size!

Couldn't agree more. We could've had Kelly on our list in both 2018 and 2019 for far less than what we will have to pay him now. This is unfortunate for Kelly as well - could've been a 2 time premiership player at the end of 2019.
Do we win the 2018 flag if we pick up Kelly though? Butterfly affect and all that.. Sheed wouldn’t have played a game all year, Hutch most likely not in the side either while Gaff and Kelly are both in. Pretty happy with the way it’s turned out regardless.. and now we’ve got the opportunity to add a top 5 Brownlow medalist to a premiership side (and currently 2nd in the flag defence).

So my 2nd confirmation in a week...

A very close lifetime indigenous friend of mine a week ago spoke to Tims Mum. Said hes buying a house soon in Geelong.

Then yesterday Tims 1st cousin came to my Nans funeral as did the Ballantyne family. Again Tim is buying a house in Geelong.

Time to move on from Tim Kelly...

And last years prelim final i attended with the Kellys and Bynders (Patrick Bynder) who designed our indigenous jersey...My Brother in law is family of Bynders/Coles. Thanks to him i got my ticket from the family.

And if it changes well i guess Eagles or Freo would have to up contract offers. But as of right now he is staying in Geelong.

Nicholas Reid is a jet. Have been talking to people lately about him. Most of them have said he hadnt really put in the hard yards but now hes doing that. Lets get him. Think we have another TK with him.

If Tim decides to stay in Geelong then that's fantastic for him and the Cats.
Seems like a good bloke and with his family situation I hope he can earn enough to set his kids up for the future.
Hopefully both for our sake and Tim's Geelong are offering to pay him 20-30% more than what we could offer him (if he decides to stay).

You say that yet the fact is he sat in the WAFL for 4 years.

He wouldn't be there if he didn't have problems he needed to fix.
I remember you were opposed to us drafting Kelly. You were the bloke that gave us the theory that you can’t draft elite midfielders in the second round 😂

You’ve been clearly proven wrong. That’s ok, we all get it wrong from time to time. But spare us your bullsh#t revisionism, offered in a desperate attempt to justify the opinion you held last year.

From vague memories hunter clark, O’Brien and Stephenson where the midfield types linked all before our first pick. There was small rumblings on Higgins and reaching for Allen whom a lot where unhappy with the idea of Allen at 13.

I reckon as soon as brander was still on the table at 13 like wise with Allen at 21 it was an instantaneous selection
It sure was
