Honest question but do you really think Greenwood would generate a pick 19 back as a 27 year old?

Decent midfielders at 27 or older aren't worth that much these days on the open market. They are a dime a dozen.

I'd be very surprised if he netted anything more than a mid to late second rounder especially if he is actually requesting a trade to add to it.
To Gold Coast?..yes as they generally have to pay a premium just to get players up there

No doubt some of the people on this board's reaction will be "He would say that though wouldn't he"........Still.

It was clear months ago Izak was enjoying it up there by his comments but the reaction on this board was "He would say that though wouldn't he".....

Luko however has not been so adamant he is enjoying it so much.
Interesting it was the reverse before the draft.
Luko seemed generally happy to go anywhere Izak was pretty quiet.

This news irritated me last night, but realistically I’m not sure why, it’s not like we’ve lost anything. He may come back in time but thinking we would pick him up this year was super unrealistic.

On a side, is it just me or are GC being a tad douchebagy with the timing of their media releases right now?

We're the only team they've never beaten since their inception. I'd imagine this a huge source of irritation to them. There are plenty of clubs who love to play little mind games in the week leading up to play us. Chris Scott is 1 who immediately comes to mind. Port in general, Hinkley or Rucci, often have a crack

Cleveland Browns, Tottenham
Rankine 14 Disposals - 9 kicks - 5 handballs - 4 marks - 9 Tackles - 2 i50's - 1.1 in the NEAFL in the Suns win over the Swans yesterday.. 9 Tackles impressive.
Here’s my theory

We can still get Rankine/Luko

Smart by his manager, get him to re-sign on say $350-400k pa
Knowing Adelaide will have a fair amount of cap space, come back knowing that they have to at a minimum match that price
Then request a trade to us

That’s my conspiracy theory 😉
