    If we lose the Grand final (pick 17), turns into pick 18 with Lynch compo.

    Created pick 7 out of fresh air.
    Every club should be trying to trade with the Suns it seems.

    More headscratching than the famous Marley Williams 3 vote game.

    If anyone has the time, go back to the 2015 draft. That is where all those draft picks came from pretty much.

    Gold Coast received 4 future 2nd rounders in 2015 from other clubs which activated the following year. Instead of using them the following year they traded them all over to 2017, seemingly because they thought that draft was finally going to be the good one - but nope, apparently not, apparently didn't like that one either and tried to trade them all for just 1 pick the following year, only this time it absolutely blew up.

    In fairness I think most people thought West Coast would finish pretty low this year, so it didn't seem too bad at the time, maybe slightly over-generous, but the way they held the picks over for three drafts essentially, and passed over all the players available in the 2nd round of those drafts, only to trade it away 3 years later all for a 5 pick improvement sums up the slapstick comedy that has been their list management and trading since their inception.

    Pick 18 for 20, 21, 26, 37. Subject to change for compo picks of course.

    I mean seriously.

    People didn’t think so at the time so you can’t judge too harshly.

    Extraordinary circumstances.

    But even if not, Weller for pick 2 definitely is worse.

    Nah this is definitely the worse , Weller for pick 2 and 41 Ballard still give a little hope that both can become a good player , pick 18 ,50 (Crossley)vs pick 20,21 ,26(Liam Ryan ),37 are like buying 4 lotto ticket vs two .

    Pick 19 when Tom Lynch leaves also will eagles get a first for Gaff leaving? Plus after bids are matched the pick will end up further down the order.

    I know it looked a good deal back last year but man Scott Clayton really screwed Suns over. Traded pick 2 for Weller, this trade and then drafting wil Powell at 19 far earlier then expected.

    Last year was a great year to trade with the Suns it looks like. Who knows, maybe this year is too despite the loss of Clayton.

    That's embarrassing. Even at the time last year it was bizarre.

    You could take away anyone of those picks the suns gave out of the trade and it is still in WCE's favor.

    Just awful and I'd want some answers if i was a suns person.

    So a two pick down grade in the end? The Lynch compo won't change that, just push both picks back so the Suns need the AFL to issue about 47 end of first round compo picks just to move the trade up from unthinkable to horrible.

    What If ?
    Fremantle take multiple Second Rd pick with this year second Rd .
    Tim Kelly instead of pick 2 Brayshaw /Cerra , Bailey Fritsch/Liam Ryan , Zac Langdon and this year GC second Rd .

    Veteran recruiting guru Scott Clayton has joined West Coast in a significant boost to the club’s list management plans.

    It is understood Clayton, the inaugural Gold Coast list manager, will join the existing Eagles recruiting staff rather than become part of any shake-up of the department.

    Staff were told of the appointment this morning, with Clayton to be based in Melbourne.

    Clayton left the Suns after last year’s national draft as the club opted for change in several key football positions.

    Ignoring what the picks were - it secured us Liam Ryan who helped us win a flag!

    That alone is success right there

    Amazing what hindsight does - at the end of last year when we were considered bottom 6 fancies - the trade could have been a disaster
