Very harsh on Skipworth. What evidence do you have that this was the case? It was sudden because Tarkyn Lockyer accepted an AFL role and in turn Pies appointed Skip to Head of Academy.
You don’t abandon your post day one of preseason. You’ve had all off season to move on, you’ve committed to the cause. It’s an unprofessional move.

Sure but it’s such an unprofessional decision it makes you question his decision making and buy in entirely. I don’t want someone who doesn’t buy in to be anywhere near Daniher let alone be his line coach.
Ah, I thought you were suggesting Skippy was pushed or encouraged to go due to some social or professional issue with Joe.

As far as Joe goes. Not getting my hopes up. Has still had issues when his training load has increased which is why he has stopped running again . He now has bugger all fitness base, has to be managed for the rest of his career and for a bloke who relies on jumping and pace of the mark it is the worst type of injury to have. My personal view is that even though Sydney where offering pick 5 and we wanted players for the now maybe we would have been better taking 9 and a next years first. If Joe does not get up and running to near 3/4 of his best then we will have made the wrong call.

Still a fair way off training I see? Haven’t really engaged in the joe show since the trade fell through, but did we actually ever ascertain what the best offer Sydney ponied up un/officially?

Was 5 & 9 ever on the table? Or just Chinese whispers?

#9 and next year first was the best it got.

The only player offered was Papley, but not with those picks.

The problem with the JD potential trade was unrealistic expectations placed by EFC - You were never going to get a JD replacement from the 2019 or probably the 2020 draft - Missed a golden opportunity to move on a disgruntled player for good draft capital.
Good draft capital?

Pick 9 & 25? I’d barely call that good draft capital. The problem was Sydney’s unrealistic expectations that they could low ball us.

And you’re right, there was no adequate replacement in this year’s draft, so the draft capital was diminished even further.

If he is cooked, that deal looks much better. Sydney may have dodged a bullet. Time will tell I guess.
