No point getting mad at either of them if they re-sign - it means they didn't want us. We need not pursue them in the future.

I was very against the Gibbs trade for the same reason.
or it also means that the crows were not 100% to get him back..maybe the rumors last year that we were very lukosius focused were correct and that rankine was not a top priority for us (although god only knows why he would not have been)

Just because Luko was at the top of the whiteboard doesn't mean we wouldn't have taken Rankine if we could have.

We were very keen on Connor Rozee, I think we'd have taken him before Rankine. Both hey shorty and I were very keen on Rozee over Rankine in the run up to the draft and copped quite a bit of flak over it.....Not looking too bad currently.

to be fair, we have not yet seen Rankine due to injury..lets see how he goes with a clear run..I think he will be magic

I think there were a number of people keen on Rozee, most particularly because he was seen as attainable at around 5-8.

The other 2 were pie in the sky and locked in to 2/3.

That Port we’re so aggressive and single minded about nailing that draft, put us to shame really

I'm still of the opinion Rozee will have a more productive career than Rankine, my opinion has always been temperament based.

I still wonder whether we would have played him or not.

I'm led to believe he was number 4 on our board, hence the big talk about us trying to get St Kildas pick 4. The sticking point was Port were certainties to grab M King is he fell.

Wish we had got him! I'm still not sure AFC wouldve played him more than Chayce though. The mentality seems fixed.

I think the luko and rankine boat has sailed personally
Hopefully it's pick 2 and some aggressive trading and give the youngsters a go
short term pain

The Suns have big money to shell out. They have lost their two highest paid players last year, and are trying to prove they wont lose any more young talent. So if Rankine was on $80k this year, and next, the GC just re did his contract so that he is on $250-300k in years 2, 3 and 4.
Of course he would sign.

as long as the AFL don't shaft us by giving GC a PP, we are very well set. If what some others on our board have mentioned comes to pass re Greenwood, then if Luko is out of the question, we should be targeting their Brisbane 1st - it may be that Greenwood and our 2nd for their Brisbane 1st is a possibility and then it would give us a great draft hand
