Any thoughts on Stuart Broad from the Tigers. He's out of contract and out of favour. Would be a great Geary replacement. Great in the air and on the ground.
He’s very good in the Richmond set up but he’s no individual gun.

Pretty good defensively but not the best kick, watch him a lot run it out of defender after a switch but not have the confidence or ability to hit a long target and virtually goes sideways again to the boundary with a 15m kick and slows down the whole attack.

Would be no good at Marvel likes overhead conditions to help him swing the ball.

Reckon he would be ones of those players who would not be as good outside of the Richmond struture

Except we didnt want more kids on the list. It doesn't matter who our original draft picks ended up being in the long run and will have no bearing on whether our trades are deemed successful or not.

We wanted players who would improve us immediately and the success of the trades will be determined by whether those players have instantly made us a better side. And by all metrics, they have.

I think you can't make up for a lack of stars though and that top end of the draft is were they usually come from. North Melbourne nearly got there with a lack of top end but couldn't quite move up past the best sides. We really need stars still. I just can't see where they are going to come from if we don't use the draft.

Anyone whinging about last year's trade period has rocks in there head, I don't care which way you spin it it was a win.

Bit like whinging about trading pick 10 for Clark, Long and Battle for 2 years.

Why, we haven't moved anywhere much yet. Hill has been average. Jones pretty good but starting to look less so, Butler looked amazing early and Howard about Carlisle quality. I thing GC and Freo have had a massive jump on good drafting.

Buying GOP is one way, drafting is another. Longer term the draft is often best. We got desperate and had to chase instant improvement because we f’ed the last rebuild. It doesn't mean it's right or a better way to go.

If we miss finals next year or step backwards and there aren't even a bunch of kids to pin hope on the club is worse off.

We’ve hit the wall with a few injuries & the young squad feeling the pinch being away from home for so long.

Howard is a long term lock & will only get better. And Hill is on a hiding to nothing. Plays well, gets bagged.

How many picks have GC had to get right? And where exactly are they? No guarantee their inability to retain players will change yet either. Freo? Have also had multiple top ten picks for the past 4 seasons. They’ve recruited quite a few mature players too. They look promising but still rely heavily on Fyfe & Mundy. No guarantees with them either.

Can’t believe you even compared him to Newnes the other day. Newnes was barely competitive for us over the past few seasons.

And we still have a very young list even without adding a 1st round pick last year. With the free agents available & are reported targets, there’s a decent likelihood that we’ll go to the draft with our 1st this year.

guess would be Corr but I don't really know
Corr really is an ordinary player.

An absolute turnover merchant who isn’t even a decent one on one defender.

Big pass for me.

I’d rather see what Tom McDonald is worth & slot him in at CHB where Dopey Goodwin should have been playing him.

I don't know too much about him, haven't really watched him play but that doesn't sound good :huh:

It looks a lot like when Melbourne did it to get Salem, Bernie Vince and Dom Tyson. Hopefully ours works a lot better. But that cost them Josh Kelly. It's hard to say it wa the wrong move because they'd been sh*t for so long but what short term looks good doesn't always end up that way. These days they have lots of stars and are still sh*t so I guess there isn't a right and wrongly to do it. Just got to nail it regardless.
