Oppo fans on this thread…

Daniel Rioli stays at Richmond: dumb move, could have gone to the Suns and been in contention, not be playing off for wooden spoons, he owes Richmond nothing, blah blah blah.

Daniel Rioli goes to the Suns: disloyal, Richmond gifted him three flags, needed to be around for the re-build, the Suns aren’t going anywhere anyway, sullied the Rioli name at Punt Rd, blah blah blah.

eagles fans: can we give some of our premiership players away? 😂

you could make convincing arguments for both those positions, im sure you'd. have fans on your own board argue both.
 
The Rioli deal

Gold Coast is prepared to give up two first-round selections for Richmond’s Daniel Rioli.

The problem is that one of them is an end-of-first-round selection that might drift into the mid-20s. The Suns have their own first-rounder, the Western Bulldogs’ first-rounder and the Kangaroos’ end-of-first-rounder (from the club’s AFL assistance package). So, the Tigers might be able to add two early picks to a draft hand that is currently 2, 22 and 34. But while Richmond would ask for the best of the Dogs’ or Suns’ draft picks, last year the Roos’ end-of-first-rounder fell as far as pick 29.

Looks like the specifics of this deal are coming together now. Expecting Dan Rioli to be in the red and gold next year.

What's the asking price realistically?
To convince us to trade him? Probably what Ralph reported, maybe doesn't need the North PP if we really like someone in the range in this draft. Think he has 4 years left or at least 3 so not really much motivation to trade unless it's very good draft capital.
 
He's also, yknow, kinda ****in shit.

Agreed. Has had one good season where he was an AA nominee and that’s it. No club awards, a goal of the year and 6 career Brownlow votes at the age of 28 in Jan.

Hardwick just plucking all the great richmond talent that currently has them...below the eagles on the ladder. Sheesh.

We could throw him a bone and send him andrew gaff and dom sheed for a deal. Hit me up Damo.
 
Daniel Rioli is a good player but not a 2 first round draft picks good player.
GC will have to overpay to get him but shouldn't pay that much.

He's better off half-back than he was as a small forward. Agree though that the Suns look like they are willing to pay overs based on what's been said in the media and posted here. His career prior to the shift in position is unremarkable as he was really just playing a role and wasn't much of a standout compared to other small forwards in the comp. I still love him though and I'd hate to see him go, but if the Suns want to put a ridiculously overpriced offer forward then I think the Tigers would be stupid not to take it.
 
2 “first rounders” that are actually picks that are traditional second rounders makes way more sense than 2 teens or top 10 picks.

22 & 28 as a random guess of where the picks may fall I feel would be a fair deal.

About right for a half back that averages 20 in a side that currently gets plenty of opportunities down back.

No b&f and no AA.
