    Discuss...

    Happy / not happy? Obviously only time will tell but I reckon we're at least in with a fighting chance of coming out ok.

    I also agree with everything the club does, with the sweet taste of kool aid on my lips.

    That being said, probably a better outcome than what I feared for going in.

    We have 3 talented blokes happy to play for the AFC, and no go home factor with any of them. Got to be happy with that.

    Agree with this. If someone offered me this outcome once danger said he was going I would have started the car.

    I think the better question is

    Dangerfield
    Kerridge
    Wright; or

    Menzel
    Milera
    Seedsman
    Hampton
    Greenwood
    Doedee
    Gore...

    I think we should have a vastly better 22 next year than this year

    ask me in 3 years when we will have 3 footy seasons of performances from Menzel, Milera and Gore.

    I think we have a better balanced team between inside & outside.

    B Crouch, menzel, seedsman, Hampton v Dangerfield, Wright, MacKay, van berlo

    Will always miss Danger, very special player. Given Trigg would have grabbed pick 14 with both hands we have done better than previous admins would have allowed.

    As someone who watched a bit of Gore pre draft, I hold out a fair amount of hope on him, we know the other two are genuine talents but this kid may suprise a few if he develops into the player I think he can become.

    So it's 2 mids for 2 fwds...gore for 50 is ok (especially if our pick 13 is anything to go by). Probably a B-rating in isolation

    Probably about par right now.

    If two of the three have decent careers from now on I reckon we could be in front.

    The opposite if two of the three fail.

    Losing Dangerfield will probably improve our draft position over the next few years. We're in front :thumbsu:

    Yeah, obviously too early to tell.

    Doesn't look superb at face value at the moment, especially throwing Kerridge in as well. I believe we could probably have held out for a bit more. Disagree with this if you will.

    Still annoyed the Bummers got more for Carlisle and all his associated baggage. Hope we don't deal with them in the near future.

    That said, these players (especially Milera and Menzel) definitely appear to have the ability to turn this deal in our favour. Whether or not this eventuates is a different matter.

    That said, I think it's important to holistically judge the trade/draft period. We weren't only looking to get fair returns for Clangerfield, but also to use the period to improve our list otherwise. The deal gave us a bit more freedom to wheel and deal for Menzel and Seedsman. This may not have happened so easily if the deal was two firsts for Danger, whether that was the right thing or not (although the argument could be that we could have downgraded one of these picks).

    I think we overpaid for Hampton, but that's another matter. We can always try and get that 2nd rounder back with a 2017 second rounder.

    Also could be important to consider the "knock-on effect" on what we already have and how this affects our lineup for next year. What I mean is that Seedsman for example indirectly boosts our midfield as it allows Smith to move into the middle, which may improve our side more than if Danger stayed.

    All things considered, I'd say our list is more balanced, but not necessarily better at the moment because of Danger's departure. I'm satisfied but not particularly thrilled with the result at the moment, but that could easily change for better or worse.

    Happy that we've targeted kids with talent that want to be here. Feel bad for Kerridge going to Carlton but it might be the best move for him, he can push into their side easier than ours.

    Kerridge couldn't get a game here and we gave up 50 for Gore, so it's basically Menzel and Milera for Dangerfield.

    Reckon we could even come out on top over the next few years.

    At any rate it's infinitely better than losing Danger for pick 18 or whatever it ended up being. There really wasn't much on offer after Milera imo

    IMO our 2016 list has more talent and depth than our 2015 list
