Can’t say I blame you. I did that a very long time ago too.

Pies needed to expand their list management/recruiting team, having the most under resourced recruiting department in the competition in recent years.
Can't comment on Ned Guy, as I have not crossed paths with him.
What I like is having Derek back as head recruiter/junior talent guy (that's what he does best) and I also like having a full timer looking at opposition list talent and mature agers (Rendell). Pies have long needed someone looking at opposition talent and mature agers. Hawthorn, Sydney and even Richmond this year, none of whom are great with u18 talent ID, have done a great job recruiting from other clubs and from the state leagues.
I also liked the cut of Marley William's jib
Serves me right for trying to be positive once in a blue moon when it's blatantly obvious rubbishing just about everything that happened under Buckley's watch is the right horse to back.
Anzacday , please note.
Cheer up PB. There is always beer. Matter of fact...
So that's it, teddy out the cot and no more positivity?
Yep, I've clearly went over my quota.
My outlook will remain grim until further notice.
Come now, it was meant to be, Paul Seedman is the future of Adelaide.
( how's that's working out ? )
It's a good move about time we caught up with the other clubs in this regard
You reckon the fact we got this guy means something good comes with it? Probably not this year but certainly next year

Hope this isn't a repeat - Guy is Rory Sloane's manager. Sloane is a FA in 12 months - from a news site
Simpson’s character maybe? This guy, Ned Flanders.....
I was a fan of both Seedsman and Williams so don't take it to heart.
just needed to have happened 2 years ago, to avoid the Chris Mayne & Daniel Wells fiascos, and throw in James Aish, Jessie White, Corey Gault & Jarryd Blair for good measure.
He hasnt done us any favours so far btw. Lever and Smith choosing other clubs.. Sloane awaiting an Adelaide extension in his words.
Can only imagine the recent negotiations went something like this...
"Hi Ned, we'd love Lever and Smith to come to us..."
"Sorry guys, your list is shite... youre nowhere near in a premiership window, and youre the only ones who dont know it"
"Really... wow... ok. Thanks for your honesty. Since you sound like you know what youre doing, do you think you could could help get us out of this hole?"
"Double my pay and I'll consider it"
"Ok Ned, done & much appreciated. With your help, hopefully we can fix this problem we're in..."
Harsh on AIsh as he has Way more Upside then White,Gault,Mayne and Blair
I would have thought so too, but after last year, I have begun to change my mind about him. He has been in the system 4 years now and has simply not been good enough to justify a spot in the team, let alone his high selection. Another recruiting failure.
What sort of influence will this guy have during this trade period for us? I mean, he is going to be our head of list management going forward so does that mean we will ask for his input into any deals that we make (namely the Schache one)?
Probably none at this trade period as he has not started his job with us and it would be a clear conflict of interest.
I really liked the cut of Marley's jib too.....hang on....what is a jib again?
Still coming to grips with the idea that Collingwood, the club that loves nothing more than to brag about how it has the best of everything, had one of the most under resourced recruiting departments in the comp.
I'm not doubting your knowledge, but how would it be even possible that Collingwood would be under-resourced in any area, let alone recruiting? How would this have happened under Eddie's and Pertie's watch? I always assumed that we were the best resourced club full stop.
Can anybody explain how this may have come about?
The only 'information' I know of is a reported statement from the club that we need to address our cap - no details, no facts, no background.
From this some have deduced that we are paupers and the laughing stock of the league.
Typical big foot off season trash talk really.
Moving Hine out of list management is very important, he's been terrible at it.
Not willing to pay into the tax for going over football department spend.
Since the Malthouse days, this has been concern numero uno.
Too much of a concern, we’re a footy club out to win it all, to do it on the cheap
