That is why Richmond were allowed to pilfer the Suns and take Caddy and Prestia
That is why Essendon were allowed to plunder GWS and take Smith and Sheil but
the minute Carlton were about to land Coniglio. Gillan brings out the big stop signs
.....and the compensation for losing Waite was...please remind me again?

Ha! Nothing wrong with it can’t relay on the one thing or kick to the boundary pocket, we need some better ways at exiting from back half thought we had some better moments in the back half of the year...
I think the whole league struggled with this with the new kick out rules. Most clubs did the same things: pinpoint it short to a target or belt the crap out of it to a favourable position down a wing. Watch clubs learn from that over the off season and varied strategies will arise. I hope we have a successful one!

Richmond grabbed Caddy from Geelong. Blues could have landed Prestia and Saad but they accepted higher coin elsewhere.Saad especially was keen to get to the Blues.

Essendon plundering GWS?? ******* lol.. from a Carlton supporter that is hilarious.

If you're going to post shit, at least have a crack at posting accurate shit.

Carlton got the GWS cast offs.
Essendon plundered their better players

Umm ok. I won't need to say much to counter your argument because frankly, you're doing a good enough job of that yourself.

Anyway, moving forward, there were reasons behind our GWS 'bulk buy' recruiting that have been covered here, and been detailed by the Club ad nauseam.

Thankfully, that scattergun approach to list rejuvenation is over and we can now be far more selective in our approach to recruitment.

He was right about Gil stepping in to keep Coniglio at GWS though. The AFL has gone & "sponsored" him outside the cap like they have always done with the Ducks up in Sydney!!!

there are no other teams worthy

Giving up pick 6 is hardly pilfering for Prestia.

Caddy was a trade from Geelong, NOT the Suns....

Geelong will be very happy with Parfitt and Narkle long term from that deal.

Too much made up bullshit around here passed on as if reality.
It's sad this is the level here at moment some are plunging to.
List management understanding is so bad here.
Lift people.

Mate "IF" this was the case it wasn't aimed at Carlton, it was the same for all teams that were trying to obtain his services. Everyone says but we had him, however, you never have anyone until the ink is dry. Let it go

I plan to lift to such an extent I'm considering a name change to Otis Schindler......

I'd correct a couple:

THE UGLY:

  • Zach Tuohy and a 2017 second round pick to Geelong for Billie Smedts, pick 63 and a 2017 first-round pick. - Probably a mediocre trade in the end but not ugly, we did get a first round pick out of it. Ugly makes it seem like a complete disaster of a trade, which it's not.
  • Pick 135 to GWS for Rhys Palmer - How on earth is this ugly? Trading a pick that's never been used in the history of the draft for a salary dump which in turn enabled us to complete another trade for slight unders. This one is just irresponsible journalism.

Palmer an ugly trade, pick 135, what a joke.

The other on the other hand I agree with. Tuohy is a good player and would have been worth the 1st on his own, for a challenging side, it was pick 14 if I recall.
I assume SOS banked on finishing 3-5 spots higher than we did.

Other than this, he hasn’t done much wrong, Kennedy might come to haunt him, but you can’t get them all right.

I just don't see the Tuohy trade as ugly. Imo mediocre is fair enough, you could make the case it was bad, but it's not ugly. Like I said that makes it seem like an out and out failure of a trade, which I don't think it was.
