Only their own supporters really, who will remember if they beat Adelaide this week or not?

Adelaide don’t tag, so I expect their midfield to go ballistic and win easily.
I'm just not confident.

Anyway, here is the text I just sent my Collingwood associate at work:

"It would be awesome if your completely useless football team could do the right thing this weekend but sadly that is probably beyond you."

He had no idea what I was talking about lol.

There will be plenty wanting to do something similar....which is why it's unlikely to come off too many times.

Adelaide were quick though to wave it around first.
This smacks of PR. s**t things are happening so let’s give our supporters something to be happy about. I’ve got past caring about this pick swap. My honest take on it is that Adelaide need the pick more than we do.

Oh, they do...and how.

Know they're going to lose plenty of premium talent in the next year or two, by way of retirement and players wanting to move out.
Seem to be desperately wanting to do a Port Adelaide now, but it may be too late.

Interesting development. Draft pick for sale.

Ogilvie was interviewed on the latest road to the draft podcast.

He said the draft is pretty even and that clubs will like different players.

Didn't sound like there was a clear standout for their selection.

Also sounds like he thinks the trade was a win win. He openly said they thought they were going to be a bit higher on the ladder, so clearly they didn't account for trading away a top 10 pick as a part of this trade.

Am bewildered at the number of occasions Crow posters refer to Teague as one of their own; even going so far as writing that we should indirectly thank the Crows for our improvement.

In reality they should be thanking us for their 2017 killer forward line functionality, which contributed in major part to their GF appearance. They were fortunate to have the valuable, yet temporary, input of a true Blue.

Can't help but think their supporters will be pi**ed if it eventuates.

It's one of the things they hang their hat on - being "almost successful" (ie. not awful) without ever having high draft picks. Now that they've got their hands on one, I reckon their supporters will be looking forward to taking a kid at the pointy end of the draft, and if Reid trades the pick away for a few picks in the late teens, there might just be a big backlash.
