Im not so sure, if I was in that position and heard their losing Treloar and Stephenson, I wouldnt think they would be making the 8.They'd have their predicted finishing order and probably on average that deal was 12ish for those picks.
No. We've made our choice with who'll be the midfields elder statesman of this rebuild, and it wasn't Crouch.
Not enough. Band 1 is highly unlikely, so it'll be 19 or whatever that pushes back to. Definitely 20+ because pies will be matching into round 1 which they don't presently have. I doubt there's any risk of him staying and he's not on the sh*t list like Brad was, so they should match this time and then look to get a better pick or similar pick and upgrade. Unless it's the Roos, in which case we're stuffed.This draft capital you speak of, define in in what draft picks/compo is acceptable?
Matt for 600k is a bargain. He'd be on more than that atm IMO.
I think we'd pay market rate by 4 years, question is whether he wants to stay. No reason to think he doesn't, but I think there'll be a few offers around the same $ and he'll just choose where he wants to play. Maybe a longer deal or certain contender might be something we can't offer, but I doubt it'll be $ based.
Is that meant to be an argument in support of your view? What if we'd kicked 10:30 to 15:1 and dominated play? Would that be being competitive?Losing to hawthorn by 3 points looks pretty good on paper. We must have been competitive and I'm sure everyone was happy with our performance.

People may underestimate him.... But Mutineer is not one of themI think people seriously underestimate matt crouch on this board....
Hes a 30+ mid who has been AA....
Very few of them in the AFL and every team needs an extractor.... look at how our midfield has stood up without him and sloane
Far too much IMO.I would send Matt to free agency just like Brad, with the one exception that I would actually match his deal if it didn't give us a first round pick.
I would be comfortable paying a salary that didn't generate a first round compensation pick, but think that the $800k+ range required for the first rounder is too much
Matt's always played better without his brother too.Will be interested to see how M Crouch returns.
He finished 2020 well and looked fit in those training highlights recently (quick feet!)
I actually think he'll be better without Campo plus without Campo's #1 disciple (Brad) telling him defense doesn't matter, just win it at the contest
I guess things can change - a year out and I didn't think we'd have a shot at getting Thilthorpe yet here we are - but chances of Horne are remote IMO.We need to be aggressive this trade period and learn from the mistakes of the 2018 draft.
A lot can happen between now and November, as you said if Horne gets injured than yes. Of course you dont want a player to get a long term injury , but if he did, I cant see a Vic Club taking a risk on a SA player who is injured, he probably would slide to us at Pick 3 or 4 or wherever we land in that Top 5.
In Victoria, they lost their minds, our first time to crash to the bottom of the table and we potentially get rewarded Pick 1 and 2 as a rewards.Would we have been given Band 1 compo for Brad if we'd finish 10th?
Whole thing has always seemed a bit "flexible"
