    funny thing about the trade is we all thought it was gonna net them weller. ehh.

    i still reckon it's a handy trade for gc with two picks in the first round an wc not really drafting a star with those picks. (by the looks)

    That's a big call early - Liam Ryan is an excitment machine and Oscar Allen is a key forward and they always take time.

    Liam Ryan looks like he could be one of the best small forwards in the competition once he establishes himself, averaged 2.66 goals a game in his first few games before injury.

    Oscar Allen won the best and fairest award in last years u18 championships as a KPF and is currently being played in the backline in the magoos due to only recently coming back from injury and our depth in tall forwards, and is performing quite well given he hasn't played there before, gives off that future captain/leader vibe.

    Petrucelle could be anything, the quickest player in last years draft and is as agile as a cat. Was suggested that he wouldn't debut for a while due to being a late converter too footy and being so raw, yet kicked 4 goals in a WAFL game, got the call up and came in and impacted in his first 2 games, kicking 2 goals in his 2nd game before injury. Returned from injury to the WAFL last week and kicked another 3 goals.

    Very well could've drafted 3 stars with those picks.

    You would consider asking another man to write your bio for a dating site?

    You may have revealed too much about yourself.

    7 goals against sydney, geelong and the bulldogs is pretty good I would've thought, what else could you expect in a players first 3 games? Excited for him to come back and prove dismissive fools like yourself wrong. Kid is loaded with talent.

    I know being a carlton supporter you're probably used to lacklustre drafting after picking up spud after spud but that's not as much of an issue at west coast, all 3 players have shown as much as you could expect so far.

    Eagles are going well but I cant see them making the GF. Pick will likely end up 14 to 16 which GC will get a very good player in a super draft. Not a good deal but something can still be salvaged.

    If the Eagles lose Gaff and gain a first rounder, do we have to pass that to GC or is it the pick we get based on our ladder position?

    I'll admit, I was like wtf were the Eagles doing, but this trade has exceeded my expectations.

    Pick based on ladder position. Any compo pick would likely come one spot after that anyway.

    Why not? What chance are WC to finish top two? What happens from there?

    Not saying it will happen , but isn't it North 2016 season start up with a bang with 11 win and then just make the top 8.

    Yes that happened to North - they won their first nine games. Although North beat only two sides that played finals in that streak.

    So lets say we trade Gaff for pick 3 - do we on-trade that or our original pick 18 (after we win the GF)

    Original pick 18 unless otherwise stipulated.

    GC will enter the trade period with our first-rounder already up their sleeve. It's not going to get upgraded during that trade period based on what happens with Gaff. Imagine if they traded our first-rounder, only to then learn that it was pick 3 and not pick 18.

    The eagles are much better than us in 2016. Also their home ground advantage is big - I will be very surprised if they lose at home. Brave man to bet against them not finishing top 4 - let alone top 2.

    Gotta love the tin foil hat brigade claiming the deal was dodgy, most people had us finishing outside of the 8, some bottom 4, we've also debut this season the most kids. This season is an absolute unknown. It's pure luck that we've done very well out of this deal.

    I have no doubt GC were thinking they had another top 10 pick.

    So where does this sit now?

    Based on points value, the Suns just handed over a top 10 pick. Have I got that right?

    Worst case scenario it is pick 13 for 20 this year and 50 for 21, 26, 37 last year. We make the prelim it's pick 15/16, we make the GF it's 17/18.

    Was skeptical at the time but very happy with the result.

    It would have been perfect if Tim Kelly had got to #26, really good for West Coast as it stands.

    Nah, how we used the picks is our business. If there's a gun or a couple of guns taken in the 20s and we pick duds that's our problem. We could've picked Kelly at 13, or perhaps we'd hope he was still there at 32 or 68. Pretty happy with Allen and Ryan who were taken around Kelly.

    Pick 13-18 could be another Dangerfield or Rioli this year and that's the risk we took in trading forward.
