Quick update and then to leave this thread you run its true course through until Dec 2020...

Looks like I've cleared of the drug resistant bugs from Timor, so routine abx therapy had things under control.

I'm home recuperating, trying to decide who to hate least in the RWC final.

Thanks for the messages of support (again)!

So when we're not involved, the clubs pursuing the star player are just a faceless group of "Victorian clubs".
Robbo couldn't bring himself to write "Jeremy Cameron has laughed in Essendon's face and they totally stuffed up not trading Joe Daniher while they could have got value for him, and this time next year will be left no actual tall forwards, shit, they even delisted Mitch Brown"

They might keep Cameron but as usual they will lose someone

One of their other free agents Whitfield, Corr or Williams

Or out of contract lads Caldwell,O’Halloran, Hately, Finlayson etc
OK great. Can we leave you in charge of sorting all that out? No need to keep us updated along the way, just let us know when it's all done.

Kthxbi

Thoughts on picking up the Crouch brothers for our 2 x 1st round picks in 2020?

*Provided it was for reasonable priced contracts.

I think it would give us the same problem Adelaide have had for the past 2 years, having a one paced midfield with not much outside run. Crouch x2, Ziebell, Cunnington, Anderson isn’t a good mix and apart from Ziebell none can really play anywhere else. LDU, Ahern, Dumont, Hayden, Jacobs, Tyson don’t really help the situation either.

Aim high
Kelly AND Whitfield
What’s stopping us?
We have the trade currency / picks and we have the cash
I’m sure the warchest is still stashed away for a rainy day
And that day is coming quickly

Short of a season ending injury I can’t see any way Josh Kelly won’t trigger the clauses for a contract extension. It would be interesting to know if his situation is like Papley’s, who seemed to be contracted when push came to shove.

I think we would have the money and currency to get both Brad Crouch (FA) and Kelly.
If Brad Crouch can stay on the field all year I would be tempted to take him as a FA, but not bring Matt as well. Brad has a more rounded game than Matt, but it would still add to our lack of speed through the middle. If we were to bring him in we would have to make some tough list decisions to accommodate him in my opinion.
I would happily give up our 2 firsts next year for Kelly, but if we ended up with 2 top 10 picks I would be just as happy to take them to the draft.

Two first rounders next year have to turn into 2 stars - either ready made or future.
Other wise we’ll be stuck in no mans land.
We need a clone of higgo and Sloane in one player.

Yeah doubt Anderson gets a look in if we recruit another 2 good starting mids.

Doesn’t Josh have the choice to “trigger” the extension or not. Isn’t that the reason his contract was considered innovative?
That’s correct. A ‘player’ option for a further x amount of years.

This circus will continue. Our two first rounders next years make it even more realistic if there is no trigger.
