It's an embarrassment of riches. They can't even fit Hately, Shipley and Caldwell into their sides and will move them on for premiums next year keeping the cycle going. They would be starters for us. The year after they've got Green's KP brother coming through as well. It's ridiculous.Yep. AFL can fund it for the benefit of all clubs. Just like Buddy broke COLA, I think Green will put the academy in the spotlight.
If Green wasn't tied to the academy, we'd 100% agree to a 3-way trade between us, Melbourne and Sydney that sees Daniher + Melbourne's second go to Sydney, pick 3 and 5 come to us and Papley + our future first going to Melbourne.
That way, we'd get one of Rowell, Anderson or Green and another pick. Our need for a top end ball winning mid sorted, Sydney get their man and Melbourne address their desperate need for a small forward.
Because the competition is so compromised, it screws up our own list development.
