    Then move it from the DT board and send it to the Bay. There is no footy discussion in this.

    Why did the Eagles call Kelly, as they were taking pick 19, only to select Oscar Allen?

    Just seems unnecessarily cruel.

    Yet she is the only person that has said this. Just after she wasn’t granted her demand to go home. Sounds a little like sour grapes

    She is qualified to speak on the subject, (being someone who's experienced it) and her take was damning of the GFC's pastoral care.

    Why did Geelong call Tom Stewart, as they were taking pick 26, only to select Brandan Parfitt?

    Just seems unnecessarily cruel.

    Geelong drafted Tom Stewart at 40.

    I'm aware.

    They had an earlier pick, why didn't they select him earlier? According to Geelong fans that's what WC should have done with Tim Kelly. We had picks 21 and 26 and he went at 24. The way people go on about it you'd think we had 10 picks in the draft and then he went at pick 97.

    Yet Tim’s manager says differently as does Sam Blease who is also qualified to know

    Tim's manager hasn't experienced it. He has an opinion like you and I.

    Geelong's pastoral care was good enough for Blease, because he didn't have 3 kids, with one having autism. So, it was good enough for him. Caitlyn pointed out that Geelong haven't resourced their program enough. Hence GFC's pastoral care is inadequate and needs attention. I hope GFC continue to turn a blind eye to this problem of theirs.

    Your club used to be good but in recent years, there has been a push out or disconnect with Motlop, Christenson, Varco, and now Kelly .....

    I think you get the story.

    Have you ever heard of the term action speak louder than words.

    *With pick 19, The West Coast Eagles select Oscar Allen...*

    Adam Simpson
    "Haha, psych. We totally got you. We'll even string you along in next years trade period but with no intention of actually trading for you, you flog"

    I have 2 sources, they can't agree if Adam Simpson called Tim a "tool" or a "flog." Either way, it's absolutely heartbreaking and incredibly unprofessional.
