Spot on. A dismal finals exit will lead to a cull (almost above Scott’s head), and a Flag is a wonderful chance to re-set.
That is the issue.
1.If we win the flag, I could see GAJ, Taylor, Kelly, Hendo (and maybe even Selwood )Not being there.
We then look far less likely to contend, no need Steven.
2. If we just lose the GF, perhaps they all stay on for one more tilt, yes, Steven could help.
3. If we go out dismally in finals, again, can't see GAJ or Kelly or Taylor hanging around. No need Steven
Kelly and Constable for Steven 6 & 7 .... no.
Steven for Constable ... Kelly for 6 and 7...That's a deal I could find a level of happiness with, especially if we pick up some good talent with picks 6 & 7
Steven's last game was only a 17 disposal & 1 goal effort - his first game back was the 20+ disposals & 3 goalsWe've now been linked to Higgins as well. I'm not sure why we wouldn't want steven(with the price being right of course), especially if kelly goes. We will need a steve/Higgins type to break lines and kick goals. Yes steven is not in shape but he still had 20+ and 3 goals in his last game. One preseason will get him back in playing shape.
I wouldn't include constable in any trades as he looks a player but maybe menegola or menegola and a late pick
To be fair, his weight is being over played. He didn't train at all for a month.Steven's last game was only a 17 disposal & 1 goal effort - his first game back was the 20+ disposals & 3 goals
As for his playing weight, it's been discussed a bit on here that if he's on medication such as anti-depressants, that a side effect of those can be weight gain. What that also means is he can put in a fantastic preseason but won't necessarily come back to a conditioned playing weight if he is still on medication
so.. one has to look at what you get and what you give. My assessment is Freo get the best deal.. from this. Id be asking for them to throw in a kid to the deal ... but I guess it depends on internal subtle rating of players
And Constable has been known to spend Christmas Day with the Brayshaw family.His best mate plays for the Saints
