Is Joe back in the city he hates yet?...or still enjoying life atm?
I think it’s more about the Daniher name and what he brings to the club. More memberships etc. the club would of copped a back lash if we had let him go. Considering their was no real good options available either. But that’s what Likely holds this club back. Not taking the necessary risks.

Luke Jackson could be donning the sash in 3 weeks time with an xtra 1st rd'er in your back pocket next year. Instead, Joe will be soon draggin his luggage and his bottom lip back thru Tulla airport.

Next years first could blow out massively given how many academy players are likely to be picked next year. Sydney also can’t have rated pick 9 too highly if they were only prepared to accept it if they could have on traded it.

Or Sydney rated having Papley on the list in 2020 as a better option than Pick 9\Undeveloped kid in this years draft

No different to Essendon preferring Daniher?

None at all
Almost identical circumstance, you didn't want to give up a developed player for a 'potential' player
Good on you for holding him to his contract




You’re hardly making a compelling offer when you yourself don’t want the pick.
I also value Papleys 20202 contribution as greater than the immediate potential of any player at Pick 9

Again, good to see a player held to his contract

difference is essendon take the risk of getting less for him at the end of his contract than is they'd sold now. hard to say if you'll regret it till this time next year.

sydney have at least 1 and probably 3 seasons to play with.

we can still match next year and work with more "knowns" about the 2020 draft...plus 2021 comes into play.
And there is the chance he can change his mind in 2020.
And there are replacement options available next year (Cameron for example).

Plus we don't spend 2020 with a tall forward line of McKernan & Stewart only.

I must admit, i wanted the trade to happen for at least 3 reasons.

1) Joe to get his smile back as he is one of my favorite players to watch when he's bouncin'

2) I wanted Papley at the Blues

3) McKernan, Brown and Stewart donning the sash together up forward.

Alas.

But the flipside is Joe and Papley are fairly likely to be done next year, and Dodoro still has no great prospects of rectifying the glaring holes in his side of flankers.

if we only roll out with 1/6 of a VFL fwd line next year, i'll be stoked...and admittedly, McKernan had some moments last year that may mean it's clicked. Also his first full preseason i believe.

Joey and Smack as the talls.
Stringer and Langford as the mediums
Raz and Walla as the smalls

I like that fwd line. 22+ games out of it please.

Also, it isn't his side. Rutten and Caracella take over in 2020.
Ball movement, defensive pressure and a fit list - #17 is on!!! (j/k, we'll finish bottom 8 next year)
