Wright folded. Thought we could have done much better.
Folded? You got a decent young player for a nothing pick (Lipinski is far more likely to 'make it' than the draft options that would be available - aclnowledging that you would have used it for points anyway). You don't need to screw over the other club for it to be a good deal. This is a good result for Collingwood and demonstrates Wright has lost none of his professionalism.

Of course he hasn’t. He is a Collingwood premiership player. Glad to see he didn’t lose that class whilst at Waverley :p

Agree but in this draft I think worth quite a bit more draft collateral than 43.
Not so much in The Doggies case, they needed to get points for Darcy so they don't go into deficit next season.

They still have an enviable amount of mid field depth on their list, and for what their obvious needs for their current flag window (quality young Key defender(s) and another key forward to help Naughton in light of Bruce's absence next year) they are very unlikely to find those at that range in the draft.

Due to the Covid pandemic, this draft simply doesn't bat very deeply.

Pick 55 or better for Max Lynch gets us back there (if it came to that).
Hawks will trade Ceglar and probably get a late 30's/early 40's pick for him factoring in the 50% salary coverage.

Then the Hawks take that pick and they slide some picks around with the pies for Lynch with the late 30's/early 40's + Hawthorn's 59 & 65 potentially to upgrade points for the pies and the hawks are unlikely to need pick 59/65 once all the trading is done and dusted due to list spots.

The odds of The Dogs getting a player as good/better better Lipinski at that pick in the draft is a 1000-1 shot.
Glad the deal was done fairly cleanly without going into the PSD
Bailey Dale was pick 45
Caleb Daniel was pick 46
Bailey Williams was pick 48
We have done great drafting and developing players with picks in the 40s

Not sure the Pies won't need 59/65 either!

Strong chance that we never even see pick 43 used by the Dogs. It's all about points.

That aside, it's good to know we've got three 1000-1 shots on the list at the moment.
-Bailey Dale (AA) pick 45
-Caleb Daniel (AA) pick 46
-Bailey Williams pick 48

Happy with 43 for a nice kick who goes missing if there's a bit of heat on the footy. Quick hands through traffic, but pretty meek without the ball.

Key thing here is that the Doggie's list issues are not ours to solve - as you said sometime ago, it's 58, end of story. I'm not certain that the Pies want to go to the draft with 7 spots free, I'd prefer to keep say, Lynch and not use use Pick 58.
Are you sure you read the right story?

The story ends when we get to the PSD and see who is selected at Pick 2 - that may justify paying a little more for Lippa so they have that option free. That said, I believe that GW plays the long game, no sense burning a relationship over a couple of hundred draft points. The key thing is that Lippa gets to a team where he'll have more opportunity to grow and develop and the Pies get a player they need.

The 2nd mistake Wright has made this trade period. Trading our future 2nd the other, but Collingwood supporters seem to have a new messiah, who can do no wrong. Doing better than Ned Guy didn't take much.

Not about screwing WBD, but he had more leverage to get a better deal that didn't involve using the PSD.

Fair deal for both sides. Hopefully Macrae backs in Lippa for an extended midfield run.

Having 43 now opens up opportunities to trade pick 23 as well.

Agree, as I mentioned earlier, it all now depends on who the Pies get at Pick 2 in the PSD - no sense quibbling over 200 points if they have someone of value targeted for Pick 2.

I don't understand why the Pies won't use Pick 2 in the PSD - won't that depend on who's available?
Its for players who are offered a contract from their club and don't accept it but their clubs don't trade them. For example there was 1 player taken in it last year. 2 players the year before. Its not really used much.

If they don't use the PSD, then, on the face of it, I would have hoped that they had let the Lipinski trade run for a little longer - or settle for a pick in the 50's

It's already a good deal, though. You got a young player that you lured from the Dogs who they wanted to keep for a pick that has very little value. Every chance he slots straight in to your 22 and plays 100-150 games. For picks in the 40's and later, that would happen approximately 2% of the time.

Whilst I know it doesn't mean much, the vast majority on here agree it was a good trade for Collingwood and on the AFL website's survey of "who won the trade", 90% say Collingwood. What did you want him for? For free? Because haggling from a late draft pick to a very late draft pick serves almost no purpose and damages trading relationships and perceptions about clubs willingness and ability to get players across that they target (perceptions from players in the future I mean).

Given the vast majority disagree with you, surely you can see you are either underrating Lipinski or overrating pick 43.

Fair outcome for both sides and Lipinski a useful pickup for Pies with our list unbalanced as it is. I dont think he is certain best 22, his game numbers at the Dogs has declined each season for the last 4 so its not just this season where he couldnt command a spot. Still much better chance at the Pies than Dogs. For pick 43 thats fair, no guarantees on players at that level.

I agree, can't complain about getting Lipinski for that.

I really think the Pies might have stolen one.

I just think there was not enough lateral thinking at the Bulldogs to give Lipinski more of a go.

Lipinski may not be a world beater but he is better than many clubs bottom six players I think

You can’t use his raw numbers at all without context. 2020 for a reduced game time season and his numbers for 2021 include 2 games as sub where he didn’t get on and 2 games where he was the activated sub.
