I think that our list strategy is to build for the future around the last 2 drafts, so we should aim for any opportunity to bring in 1st round picks from these that we can. Hately would be a perfect addition to our young crew from that draft, with the aim of trying to secure Lukosius and rankine in the future.If we acquire anyone via trade this coming off season I hope they are a young player with upside rather than an experienced body. We have a really nice youth nucleus coming through and it only makes sense to add more talent to that.
Hately would be a good pick up. Im expecting Ollie to request a trade and wonder if we try to get someone like Hately to.be included as part of such a deal. Otherwise at this point I'd be content with just making sure that our draft picks are going to have enough points to get our F/S and academy prospects who are likely 1st round talents.
Would need a first rounder..... and a medium sized defender not a priority for us like a key position player or elite midfielder would be...so it would be a no from me.I would love to target Tom Doedee. Crows are going to be an absolute mess coming trade period and we should try and pillage them.
The well known poster that visits with info mentioned it (ages ago). There’s also been people that know his family that have said that they were surprised they even managed to get him over the border. On this board and another.
hately wasnt out of contract last year."With only two of the 18 clubs based in SA, Hately is aware he’s more likely to move interstate if he’s drafted you’re going interstate. But he’s prepared to make that move — and has been prepared for some time.Come November each year, ‘flight risk’ and ‘go-home factor’ quickly become buzz words among the AFL industry.www.foxsports.com.au
“From a young age, for whatever reason, I’ve always felt like I would move,” Hately told foxfooty.com.au.
“It would be hard to move away from family, but It’s definitely something I feel like I would embrace and definitely make the most of it."
Yep. Surprised they were able to drag him over the border.
The comments from another poster could have come to fruition last year, but didn't. And none of them said 'Hately is coming home'.
