    Cant believe you are all falling for the recreation video. SOS actually made the trade before pick 16 and then Adelaide took the player we wanted and we reluctantly took stocker.........

    Yeah I know, my comment was more about whether he was doing the right thing for his list or just cracking under pressure.

    Really liked the communication we saw with Mick and SOS. Mick seems to have been a really great addition to the team.

    Yeah i don't think Reid cracked under pressure just think he is out of his depth as a list manager.

    Who would have thought that Liam Stocker would become the most talked about recruit over the pre-season?

    No pressure Liam. Pressure is for tyres (Thanks Tuohy) :)

    Loved the serendipity of the jumper being presented by Judd - childhood hero, same club.
    It was a real case of 'better lucky than good' but it's nice that fate fell that way. The fact that Juddy was the only one in the room that could have covered the distance to get there in the required time turned into a brilliant moment.
    Hopefully a sign of positive things to come for Blues - even 'shanks from the trees' lead to a birdie putt.

    Totally agree...the pressure in the Cow's war-room would have been no different to ours, maybe more. They had two picks close to one another (16 and 19), so would have been trying to work out which players they are looking to pick, along with the added pressure with the Carlton trade, which we couldn't commit to. Reid would have had his henchmen all looking at him "so, are we trading or picking"?

    I reckon with the trades we've done with them over the past few years, SOS would have much preferred to be dealing with Reid, than that nob Dodoro.

    Reid's been pretty good for them imo. He paid up for a contracted Gibbs when they were 100% in premiership mode, just as every team should. He has probably got a better return then expected from all of the Lever, Cameron and McGovern trades. Not paying up for Lever when they had Doedee there was also a bloody good move which he deserves a lot of credit for.
    The Stocker trade was a no brainier for us if we truly rated him in the top 6 but it is also likely they didn't rate anyone else much so a probable top 4 pick next year is again probably a really good move by them.

    Would have liked to have known who was in the Crows box. To me it sounds like it could have been someone pressuring Reid to keep asking SOS to do the trade ahead of time. I've had bosses like that, you tell them the lie of the land but they don't believe you or just want to keep pressuring, it's a right pain in the arse.

    Pity his Gibbs move was 12 months too late.

    He called Jason Cripps , Crippa.:)

    Small industry. Everyone knows everyone else there'd be a low level of formality.

    More likely they were confident of getting McHenry at 19 so were trying to extract some later picks from us

    No.

    This is purely when they kept coming back to do the deal before pick 19.
