I think the odds are against Lycett making his way onto our list next year, but if he did,I think it would be more as a key forward than ruckman.....or at least someone who could alternate with the Hoff between CHF and back up ruck duties (when Lobbe needed a spell).

we need a big strong Taylor Walker type. my opinion for him has grown this year. he has made a huge difference to their team. he is big, strong and intimidating.

and he is only 194cm

Google says he's 194cm but I'm pretty sure he's shorter than that, footywire has him at 192cm which is a little more accurate as I don't think he's taller than Schulz.

Was keen to see how Lycett goes but not sure I can watch them get destroyed like they are, hopefully he doesn't play too well in front of the rivals best to keep their interest & his asking price relatively low.

We cant rest on "yeah but Redden when fit is a gun"
Redden has been injured for near 2 seasons and who knows what he will be like IF/WHEN he makes it back

At the moment we have Lobbe and Renouf. If Lobbe goes down now we are ******. Even if Renouf wasnt injured he is about as handy as having a witches hat anyway

We need to prepare for the possibility that we might not see Redden for a long time and who knows how long it will be til he is back to his best anyway

I think we'd be stupid not to try everything to get Lycett. Yes the crows will have a dip as they are looking for a Jacobs backup (Graham is s**t), but the mail is Jonathan Griffin is a near certainty to go back to the crows

Lycett addresses one of our big deficiencies... then to get Cameron ;)
Redden is going great according to his family. I think he will be our Brendan Lade story.

Lycett impressed me immensely today.If he does decide he wants to go back to SA and more importantly to Alberton I'd be stoked.I reckon we can get him for a Ebert type deal so here's hoping he decides to return home.

Nah. We only got 'an Ebert type deal' for Brad because we didn't have any picks in between pick 6 and pick 28, and pick 6 was obviously well overs at the time. This year we'll have a pick around 15, so that's what West Coast will be gunning for, possibly with a second rounder swap or something like that thrown in as well because pick 15-ish would be slight overs.

Tbh you'd almost give em that pick for Lycett as ya getting a ready to go ruckman/3rd tall forward out of it.I feel we are at a stage we just need to add to our list now and Lycett would add to it immensely.

But would pick 15ish for a guy who appears to have the goods be a punt on our behalf?

I haven't looked too deeply into the draft pool this year but surely Lycett > than whatever KPF is left over at pick 15ish?

I did watch today and after I stopped laughing reflected on the fact he played well and could easily be a part time ruck/forward if we needed it

I feel so torn on this one. Lobbe, Redden and Lycett on the list would lock in a key spots depth for 10 years. But whatever pick/s we give up could be used for a key forward (I hope). Is Redden/Lobbe (plus a mature backup and developing ruck if needed) enough? Would we regret letting Lycett fall into the arms of the cows? Is the answer to take Lycett, and offload Redden for a pick? The ruck pinch hitting ability/potential of Shaw and Harvey might also play a part in any decision. Maybe even involve Shaw in any potential trade?

I have no strong opinions on it but lots of what if flow on questions.
