We offloaded Caddy and it flourished at their club. Strikingly similar to the Mayne trade.

Caddy has been good for Richmond but we'd take Parfitt of the two. Jack Graham wouldn't get a game in the hoops
Graham has only been getting a game due to injury, probably doesn't play if Lambert, Ross and Ellis are fit. He is tough and good defensively but limited offensively.

Parfitt is great, good young player. It's right for Geelong to keep him but after what Caddy has done we wouldn't swap the too either. I don't think Parfitt could play that second marking option and forward as Caddy has for us, different types of player needs.

Parfitt is well ahead of both Caddy and Graham now.

Not sure where Narkle is at but anything he does is a bonus.

Geelong definitely the winners of this trade.
The Caddy trade will always be a win for Richmond regardless of whether Geelong win too. I don't think we win the flag without him, nor do we so well in 2018 without him. The Premiership and his performance justifies it no matter what happens from here.

Think Caddy is still clearly the best performed player of this group, Parfitt appears to be on an upwards trajectory & looks like he will be a better player however improvement is not always linear and that may never happen, there's been plenty of players who looked to be future stars but never got there & didn't take the next step up. Graham & Narkle you can raffle I don't particularly rate either of them but if the 2017 grand final is the best game Jack Graham ever plays & is delisted at the end of next year, there won't be many complaints from Richmond fans. Still think tigers have come out ahead at this stage, but as juss said, it doesn't mean both sides can't have had a win & been happy with what they've got out of it.

This is why no matter what happens from here, Richmond have won from our spend, regardless of if Geelong win too.

Graham limited Sloane, the oppositions best midfielder and kicked 3 goals in the GF. If that was the only game he ever played you'd happily take that for a pick 53.

Don't know how you could come to that conclusion when Caddy was so good for them in a premiership-winning year. Caddy's not playing too crash hot now, but Parfitt isn't exactly a superstar yet either. If Parfitt performs in a successful finals campaign, then it probably puts the trade level, and then we can judge depending on how their careers progress further.
