This isn’t really relevant to what he was talking about. It’s not a stat for “effectiveness”. It’s not really relevant to the claim he was playing up the ground quite a bit either as the score involvement stat doesn’t preclude positions on the ground. That’s not to dissuade any argument you might put forward about Fantasia as a player it’s just not relevant to the convo you’re quoting.

Anyway. As to his score involvements I initially thought those were good numbers and possibly are, but on the table for score involvements totals he’s not in the top 100 unless I’m blind and missing him. I did count 4 port players in the top 100 though. Still his score involvement numbers could be good, just not top 100 in the afl good.
Kid who’s missed a bunch of games not in the top 100 totals? Colour me shocked. He’s 91st on the averages table having been injured in multiple games and underdone in others so would be on average 5th/6th per team on his present less than customary levels

Games played tends to do that to total numbers. It’s average. And of course they pertain to position on ground otherwise his stats would be higher in direct goals, behinds or score assists. It’s not exact but anyone with any football sense could correlate those numbers.

yeah, that sucks
23yo with his whole future ahead of him
old ruckman (we already have one of those too)
It's all about supply and demand.

Goldstein has 5 years left in him and just beat Grundy. Essendon like the run and gun game and Goldstein allows them to play with one ruck and keep Daniher forward where he is the most dangerous. Essendon need a quality ruckman (Scott Draper leaving for St Kilda too) . Port need to give up something too. It's a scenario where all 3 teams are happy.

Maybe a 2nd rounder attached to Goldstein just to get it over the line.

Elite runner for a tall and had next to no injuries. Nothing saying he couldn't. Only have to look at Boomer to see what a player can do. Goldy could do the same. A lot of variables obviously (Brad Johnson was one that looked like he could go forever then his body just broke down) but saying he can't is just stupid.

You could be right..and in that case it would be lunacy for your club to trade him. Maybe instead of Goldy, North could take the lesser value option of including their 2019 1st rounder ;)

We have Campbell ready to step in until Xerri is ready. It'll lessen us in the short term but improve us long term.
You do, but from what you have said about Goldy, no way do you risk trading him so that another club gets 5 years of A grade silver service for their midfield. You would be better off trading campbell for a 4th rounder or so so that there is no block to Goldy rucking on and on whilst tutoring Xerri..I just can't believe you would want to risk trading him..Port would be getting a steal so better to give them your 1st round pick instead so that they don't feel like they just got away with daylight robberyo_O

Have to apply the Essendon ratio, one EFC player is worth 2.3 times the same player at another club.
Its actually 2.43 now due to inflation.

And its an additional .5% loading for getting that stat wrong.

Fantasia plus a 4th is now worth Rozee, Duursma, Butters, pick 10, Charlie Dixon and their '04 premiership.

Would be devastated if he left. Compare our records with him and without over 2018-19:

With him: 22 games, 14 wins, 8 losses, average score 91.23, scored 100+ 8 times
Without him: 14 games, 5 wins, 9 losses, average score 73.42, scored 100+ once

We're a 3 goal better side with him there.

Nuts to be suggesting Duurzma or Rozee as possible trades. Fantasia is good when he is on the park but he is soft as butter, has sticks as arms and a brittle body. He will maybe average 12 games a season. Anyway Bombers should be able to cover him by the way Dodo was fist pumping when they got Mosquito! Late first rounder or early second rounder is fair.
