I think Kelly is way better than Beams. He is younger, smooth, doesn’t have a major injury history and didn’t come out talking about his mental struggles before the trade.Come on, it's not like you gave up a couple of top ten picks for Beams. The trade was two very late first rounders and a late third rounder for Beams and a couple of early third rounders. I wouldn't say you exactly broke the bank to get him back, in fact I'd say that's very close in value to what we are likely going to offer for Kelly, our first rounder this year and Sydney's early second round pick which we own.
I’d know who I would rather have picked up with 2 late first round picks.
Forget about picks, seriously, how good is Kelly?! Apart from Dangerfield, he would be Geelong’s best player imo. In fact, he would have to be up there in the best 10 midfielders in the comp right now. I’m sure this year and next years 1st would do it. It’s not as if you have too 10 picks. Probably a little more than what we paid for Beams.
