Better be a big enough offer to trigger band 1, because pick 15 doesn't give St Kilda much trade currency and their first next year probably won't be great either assuming they play finals again.

Hmmm. I think it would have been best for him to stay, but so long as we get pick 2, I'll not get too fussed.

Sorry, I thought the AFL article indicated that the offer from Saints was real, but they were just talking about a hypothetical.

You'd imagine it's 4 years with a trigger for a 5th

So that means that the crows will have to accept the compo, even if it’s band 2?
Not sure tbh - I guess they haven't "officially" not matched, but would only do so if the compensation shafts us (though frick knows how all this plays out)

Yeah good point. You may be willing to pay him more if the alternative is band 2 compo.

Or he may still reject a matched offer, who knows what will happen.

Also tbh, I have no issue with him going to Saints. That is what free agency should be about - seeking at different club, up and coming who wants to find some missing pieces rather than like Cameron wanting to go to Geelong.

I will have no ill will to Brad. Best of luck.

Wishes to go to the Saints
Was the smartest team to go.to because they are building. I'm happy for him he picked a new up and coming side than the boring Geelong. Cameron is going to waste what's left of his career at that team. Poor decision by Cameron and dumb list management by Geelong.

ADELAIDE midfielder Brad Crouch has nominated St Kilda as his club of choice for next season.

A restricted free agent, Crouch has informed the Saints he wishes to head to Moorabbin and assist the club's pursuit for a premiership in 2021.

...

Should the Saints' contract be large enough – five years at roughly more than $700,000 – then Crouch's departure will net the Crows a pick (No.2) after their currently first-round selection.

But if the deal is less, then the likely compensation would gain the Crows an end-of-first-round compensation pick.

Cripes Pick 1 and 2... please don't screw this up
Tom Boyd, Jonathon Patton, Paddy McCartin - yikes!

Said all along that Saints were the most likely. Good chance now that they'll stump up the $ and years to avoid a trade

Brad will have a snorting good time at Morabbin
