    I understand their rational. Young squad and grabbing a few blokes who offer short term bigger bodies to give coverage to the top end draft picks they've added while still managing to grab a couple of potential gems. Much as we did adding the likes of Russell and Young.

    Wouldn't mind looking at Taylor Duryea from Hawthorn, Mathew Kennedy from GWS and Harry McKay from Carlton.

    Agree.... Such a high quality script accompanied by superb acting. The pacing has been prefect imo.

    They have patience at their club.

    You have to when most of the time your 1st draft pick is in the 2nd or 3rd round

    Doesn't sound like a player looking to leave.

    haha post a link off the club website with player x saying I'm happy and all is well - nothing to see here.
    GWS have a history of not keeping their best talent or high end draft picks. Treloar, Adams, WHE, Marchbank, Pickett, Jacksh, Ahern, McCarthy, it's a very long and deep list of players who've left GWS and that was off the top of my head.

    FWIW, he might be happy up their but as you've said in regards to Degoey where there's smoke there's fire. That applies to other clubs aswell Loki.

    Marchbank and Pickett would be very handy. GWS seems to like to just give away players to Carlton for not much but try to make us pay overs. We can't trade our 1st rd pick. I can't see GWS giving him up for pick 23-26 where it looks like we'll be. God knows they won't be keen on any player from our list that we would be willing to part with.

    Yes he is another midfielder but Smith is quick, a very good mid and a very good fwd. With reduced interchanges every player is going to need to be a genuine midfielder plus the ability to play back or forward. Smith is exactly that player.

    Moore, Cox our 2 tall fwds then everyone else is a mid/fwd that rotates.

    Haha... Most players don't say they are looking to re-sign by mid season and love it there if they are looking to pull stumps, they leave it open often saying they will look at it at the end of the year.

    It's more likely we have enquired which gets leaked and then they put 2 and 2 together with his links to his mates in Treloar, Adams and WHE with the Buckley AiS connection and him as yet not signed.

    He then comes out and says - I love it here, speak to those blokes every week and have since they left, want to re-sign by mid season...

    He said he loved the club but put off his contract till end of season. That being because he was looking at offers.

    If Smith doesn't sign by mid season then I'll start to buy into it, he is actively saying he wants to sign by mid season, there is a difference between that and end of year open statements, as that shuts the door on any potential suitors.

    So with Grundy's Manager Reportedly saying He is waiting to end of the Season. Could that be worth being very worried?

    Not overly unless we start to hear grumblings that he is unhappy or considering the offers.

    I would say Grundy and management would be testing the waters re his market value to maximise his next contract with us.

    Clubs are pretty devious when it comes to getting players from another club.
    They will up the ante on a player even if they're not interested, (Smith in this instance) so GWS has to pay more to keep him.
    This leaves less in the kitty and may result in the player they're actually interested in becoming available.
    Don't know if that's the case here, just know that not everything is as it seems.

    I'm not even big on Smith so I wouldn't mind him signing on with GWS but unlike you Loki I guess we differ and I'm a bit more optimistic. Each to their own. Nick Davis comes to mind as one who said he loved it in Melbs and would sign on. There would be many other examples. It's also not like Collingwood to lure GWS talent is it?

    One of the things the club has done very well is set us up in a social context to luring GWS talent. Can't call them kids anymore, and a they'll be plenty of FA once they hit the right age and it's only a year or two away for when that happens to.
