Yeah it’s a crazy high package but you just knew WC would cave. Two 1st round picks + Pick 24 for a guy who never truly had his heart in Geelong. And I don’t blame him given his unique family situation and being from Perth but I think Geelong have done better than expected.Especially considering they are using the BnF as their marker and their BnF winner was only worth 1 first round pick to them at the same age. Hypocrisy thy name is Geelong. WCE would be best to walk away from a below average kicking midfielder at the age of 25.
I’m out of the loop, sorry. Steven for just pick 33? Surely there’s more to it - of course, Hill will be going to Moorabbin on big money so there may be an urgency to vacate some $.Both club boards on here melting that they’ve been weak pussy’s and folded. Probably means it’s a pretty fair deal.
Sounds like it’ll be 14,24,33 and next years round 1 for Kelly and 36. 33 to then go to St.Kilda for Steven with the saints paying some of his salary.
Given this years draft, 2019, saw us the only trade restricted club given in the previous 4 drafts (2015-18) we didn’t select 2 players in the first round, for us to be in a position in year 1 of the new cycle to be using 4 first rounders by the end of year two that will help trade for players in the post-Selwood/Hawkins era in 2021-22 drafts.
Just need a ruckman. Badly
Steven has mental health issues and has indicated he'd like to go home to be with family. He's from Lorne.I’m out of the loop, sorry. Steven for just pick 33? Surely there’s more to it - of course, Hill will be going to Moorabbin on big money so there may be an urgency to vacate some $.
I'd make him retire or go via the PSD.Stand corrected. Hun now saying it is 14, 24, 33 and next years first rounder for a pick next year (eagles want R2 and we want to give R4) and Kelly.
So 14, 16, 24, 33, 36 (steven) and First rounders 2020 x2
Not a bad hand to refresh the list with young talent.
Steven has mental health issues and has indicated he'd like to go home to be with family. He's from Lorne.
He has told St. Kilda he's open to retiring as a result. Has told them he's open to coming to Geelong also.
Geelong now in a position whereby they can tell St.Kilda to take a pick in the 30s or they won't take him and he'll retire.
I.e. Your choice is 33 or lose him for nothing.
Would take that deal from a Saints pov any day.3 to then go to St.Kilda for Steven with the saints paying some of his salary.
Has mental health issues and apparently had a bad break up so wants to go back to more comfortable surroundings, gave us 10 years of good service and no malice from any saints fans for him wanting to leave.I’m out of the loop, sorry.

Yeah it's a very good get for WCE.west coast made out like bandits with that. only 2 first round picks, both likely to be in the teens, and 24. and crucially they didnt need to lose any players either to go to geelong or to get more picks. it's unlikely that anyone taken at 14 would give them 5 years like kelly probably will so it doesnt really matter to west coast.
Honestly, I don't know too many Eagles fans with a brain who are unhappy with that deal. I think we all expected that to be the price, and I'm happy to pay it.Tim Kelly taken at pick 24 2 years ago.
He leaves and we receive pick 14, 24 and Eagles’ 2020 1st round pick.
Yeah, fair trade and we’ve done alright out of that.
Not sure about that, Kelly a far better footballer than StevenApparently the 37 has somehow come from the Bombers and will be used to get Steven. Get him fit and firing and we won’t lose too much in output on Kelly for the next two years and gain picks to establish a young core.
Expect us to try and trade into the top 6-10 though.
