    Did The Bulldogs just get the steal of trade week paying way under market value for Josh Schache for only pick 25 & 40? This is a great risk move from the Bulldogs and it feels like another Sam Docherty/Elliott Yeo situation that will haunt the Lion's. schache620dogs.jpg

    Bloke's personal issues could sink him so I guess the Lions decided to get what the could. On paper it's a steal and the first time I've felt a bit bad about a trade.

    Made the best out of a bad situation. I dont know if he will be any good but pick 2 last year shows the talent is most likely there

    Was drafted in 2015.

    Weitering, Mills, Oliver, all 1, 3, and 4, and are all guns.

    But yes, still a steal.

    Weller for Pick 2 probably beats it. Josh hasn't done anything yet.

    Brisbane did everything they could to look after him by the sounds of it, sometimes player welfare comes before "winning a trade".

    There must be something weird happening for a club to trade a former pick 2, two years after they selected him, even when he's contracted. And it's not like he's been so awful that you'd just cut your losses and move on.

    Player welfare is one thing. But Brisbane have taken a big haircut on this one.

    Stringer for 2 second round picks in weak draft beats it. People compare Jake's attributes to Gary Ablett Senior and he wasn't bad at football!

    I mean what Stringer did was awful but ... oh, right he's pretty good when he's on form.

    Merge the two Queensland teams and be done with this repeated injustice.

    Anyone who thinks this problem will resolve itself with better governance is delusional, opposition teams are feasting on their carcass year after year.

    Just because he was pick #2 doesnt mean he will definitely come good.

    You dont think any number of teams over the draft era would have loved to cut bait with a high pick sooner rather than later?

    I think Schache is probably just in a bad headspace. Not in a "I'm sad cos I can't live near Mummy" way, but in a genuine "I'm really going into a dark place if something doesn't change for me" way.

    I think there are legitimate compassionate reasons for him to be traded, and Brisbane decided to do the right thing by a depressed young man, instead of being obsessed with 'winning' the trade.

    In the future, I'm sure there'll be a time when the Doggies have the chance to repay Brisbane.

    funny call from a supporter of a team that just traded a young bloke with no cred for pick 2 !

    hard too tell if its unders , if josh responds to being in Victoria its unders if he continues along the same path then its overs

    if he does not grow some pig then again its overs, but as mentioned this is about the boys wellbeing this deal both Brisbane and the dogs have got together for his and his familys well being

    Got to Essendon for unders, but in his case the duty of care was to other players on our list.

    We should hasten to add that this is speculation.

    It's not just "winning the trade". It's about getting something fair for a kid who was pick 2. They've decided it doesn't matter. As I said, player welfare is well and good but Brisbane really took a loss here.

    Is that how it works?

    Clearly had to go from Brisbane if they managed to re-sign him and then dumped him only a few months later.

    More than meets the eye.

    He didn't even play in the reserves GF. The kid checked out months and months ago, I don't think Brisbane could've prevented him wanting out. Regardless of his desire to return home, at least show some endeavour and desire.

    Pick 25 was about right for him. You wouldn't think he'd be worth more than that. Maybe he can play, maybe he needs a bit of a reality check.

    There is no need to merge Gold Coast.

    Just drop them from the league.
