What's wrong with that?Both Darcy and Goldstein have now been confirmed (on BigFooty...) today to be coming to Geelong next year.
Absolutely nothing wrong with it, I'm very keen for a clean out of our ruck stocks. I'm just skeptical that both Goldstein and Darcy are confirmed to be coming.What's wrong with that?
Zac Smith is overrated and really soft – no passion or mongrel out there – and I think he's keen to leave?
They're clearly thinking of flags. Goldy comes in for two seasons and tries getting them there. Sean Darcy is one of my favourite Freo players and I'd hate to see him go, especially now Lyon's gone, but he'll develop really really well under an actual good ruckman. Goldy is good around the ground, has some smarts outside of a tap, whereas Sandilands was a plain dumb footballer. Perfect plan.
I would have liked to have gotten Paddy Ryder at Freo for the same reason.
With that scenario, Freo could lose Darcy to gain Kelly.Got no inside info apart form listening to talk back here in WA but my gut feel, and it has been for a while now, is that Darcy will be part of the Kelly return to WA trade.
Still contracted but if it means the Dockers can obtain Kelly with some picks being exchanged than why not.
I'm no rushing Darcy out of Freo as an Eagles fan either, I love what he does and think if he can get that endurance base up he has all the traits to be terrific ruckman for Fremantle and Sandilands protege.
Being a former Geelong Falcons player and with Geelong's lack of key rucks it would just make sense but.
Interested to see how it plays out.
Lobb for starters.With that scenario, Freo could lose Darcy to gain Kelly.
Who is then going to tap the ball to Kelly, without Darcy being there ?.
Darcy is very important to Freo, they need his ruck skills.
In the words of Chris Scott 'we have five fit ruckmen available for selection', just never mind the fact they're all playing VFL and our AA caliber key defender is filling in at the moment.i reckon Tim Kelly would be stupid to go to Freo, its a Distacefull club IMO , you'd wanna go to WCE , is Sean Darcy a better Ruckman than what Geelong already have? i dont think so as i think Darcy has had an average year Ruck Wise an i dunno if he's any good up forward either
Don’t watch much footy hey.i reckon Tim Kelly would be stupid to go to Freo, its a Distacefull club IMO , you'd wanna go to WCE , is Sean Darcy a better Ruckman than what Geelong already have? i dont think so as i think Darcy has had an average year Ruck Wise an i dunno if he's any good up forward either
Kelly isn't going home for nothing. It sucks for Geelong because they'll have to accept unders.Honestly don't think that's as good for Freo long-term (as simply keeping Darcy would be).
They should go after Kelly, I just don't think Darcy is the currency to use for it. It'd be robbing Peter to pay Paul in terms of team and list balance.Kelly isn't going home for nothing. It sucks for Geelong because they'll have to accept unders.
It's in Freo's best interests to keep Darcy and trade in Kelly, and although they're not mutually exclusive, that might be the price they need to pay to get the deal done. If they don't want him at a fair price, they shouldn't table an offer (contract to Kelly, or trade proposition to the cats).
You can't get if you won't give. Like when Carlton got Judd and had no key forward for 10 years.They should go after Kelly, I just don't think Darcy is the currency to use for it. It'd be robbing Peter to pay Paul in terms of team and list balance.
