Considering all the boards on here (the negative jealous ones) have died down I thought I’d start a positive one.

can anyone name a list manager that has done such a good job over a 5 year period. Wow. Considering that, how good was his last two years. ******* wow. There was this call for his head due to missing papley and Martin. But then he gets Martin for NOTHING surely that makes up for not getting papley (who is extremely overrated imho but that’s a side story).

He just turned pick 4 into 3 first rounders. NO ONE has done that before. Has anyone ever been traded for 3 first rounders.

I know the majority of people that’ll comment on this page will be Carlton people but all you carlton trolls should start eating your words soon enough. May as well start now.

End R1 compo.

Sent to GC for Ablett and 24 (with later round swaps).
24 becomes Kelly.
Kelly becomes 2x Round 1 and 2x Round 2.
One of those R2 picks is live traded for 11 next year.

So SM became 3 years of Ablett, 2 years of rookie wage Kelly, and lastly 3x R1 picks and a Round 2

All stemming from Port paying Stevie good enough coin to get R1 compo.

SOS has a thing or two to learn still lol

Was essentially like shooting fish in a barrel. Gold Coast have so many credits they can buy with impunity. Hardly groundbreaking stuff.... lets see how those picks go...

Nice. I like the extreme 7 way version. But I’d argue he did it much more simpler than this and not across 8 other clubs getting involved. He did it by himself.

Gold Coast trade 15 and 20 for 9. And then traded 11 for 27. Lol. Who the fu** does that. If that was SOS there would be 26000 posts about if already on here.

call it a reverse sos if you will. 3 firsts for a first and a second. Thats nearly the worst trade in history and GC own the other two comparable.

They have a blank cheque when it comes to drafting/trade season and they know it. They stuff it up and as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow the cowboys at AFL house will prop em up again. Running with 0 risk.

‘Getting Martin for nothing’ actually equates to SOS failing to come to the party during the trade negotiations for his services, and simply being lucky enough that Carlton did so poorly during the season that they could get close to first dibs on him in the preseason draft. (And pay him more than he’s worth at the same time)

I don’t defend how poor Gold Coast can be at the trade table, but you don’t see quality teams like Geelong, Hawthorn, Richmond or West Coast do that shit. They get the players they want in, with no fuss, offer what the other teams wants, and they are consistently good football teams. If you offer a good, lucrative contract to a player, pay their worth.

Just quietly I reckon the list manager that has won 2 flags in the last 5 years has done alright

If those teams had the third pick in the PSD it’d be an option, but when you’re giving up players like Scrimshaw to them for fourth rounders they don’t really need too.

We offered a reasonable deal for Jack but Cochrane was high on the concessions. Trading pick 11 for Sharp only confirms this.

Note that a similar deal for Ellis netted Richmond a measly pick in the 40s and he is a player who has fulfilled his potential or at least played some consistent AFL football.

GC messed this one up.

It's true, the AFL do give much better compensation for free agents to Geelong than any other club in the comp.
Whys is Geelong seen as special, and deserving special treatment like some sort of Victorian version of Gold Coast?

Two flags in the last three years sounds much better. Now two flags in your history, well I will show myself out.
