    Agreed. Be the third or fourth mid for a few years, less attention, etc. Our become travel weary.

    Because, frankly put, it's not just a football question. Kelly's management have made it abundantly clear that it's solely about go-home and family, nothing more.

    Thats true but the cost of him staying or going must be football. we cant over pay and if he goes we must be remunerated

    There's a write up on Narkle in today's Addy and the quote at the end of the article says a lot about him & the maturity he has as a youngster:

    For Narkle, being at a club with other indigenous players such as Cockatoo, Jones, Kelly and Parfitt has made his move from Perth an easier one. "Having the other boys at Geelong with the same backgrounds means we understand each other a bit better, which really helps," he said. " I tried to help Tim (Kelly) out whenever I could when he first came over."

    There's been discussion on here about how the club would be trying their best to help out Kelly & his family, and maybe more consideration has been given to how the senior players would be helping, but it's good to see how as youngster has also tried to help & probably without direction from the club to do so

    He would win finals for us. Watching him thump the ball 20metres or palm it straight to Fyfe makes me jealous.

    At some stage, we will have Kelly, Cockatoo, Parfitt, Narkle and Jones hovering around that forward line.

    When these indigenous players play together and click they will slice teams up like not many others can do, or ever have done. Add Esava's tackling and contesting into that area too and our mid-forward area will be fearsome!!!

    Precisely! He's cooked.

    I'm still confident about Kelly. Sick of the naysayers. My goss is he's keen to stay and the club is working overtime to keep 'she who must be obeyed' happy and content to stay.

    Interesting piece on 'Sparkle Narkle" today saying how close the indigenous boys had become.

    Damien Bewick... on Krock Kelly is worth a top5 pick in this draft...

    That from a person in and around juniors is a big endorsement.


    Would we be tempted with a R1 pick swap or a 2019 R1 from Freo? One would think that they would finish in the bottom half next year ..so a pick in the top 10 ?

    for some people it is .. we should not be too judgemental. Everyone is different and the heart wants what the heart wants. and maybe she just want those who she is close to. In a way it would be easier for Tim than the family. The irony of course is she may get what she wants and then within a period find that she didn't mind this or that about being here .. maybe Tim is not as happy with his footy , when not winning or getting the same role etc.
    They say you can not have your cake and eat it too... a perverse saying .. who has ever bought a cake not to eat.. but I do think you have to be careful for what you wish. The unintended outcomes of wish fulfilment can be quite weird.

    Better start packing Timmy because your going home, once the wife has made up the mind you dont have an option...nice to know she doesn't appreciate what the club does for them, why doesnt she just come out and say she still supports west coast too!!!!

    Kelly is a star. Given his age and quality, I’m thinking he would have to be worth a top 3 pick, or two late first round picks.

    I’ve gone through our list and apart from Danger, I struggle to see a more valuable player in a trade.

    He may have higher trade value than Duncan (27yrs).

    Stewart (25?) and Blicavs (26?) might be similar value but both older.

    He’s well ahead of all the players around his age eg Parfitt, Cockatoo, Thurlow

    I get the whole aspect of wanting to be with family and to have his family happy.

    But he's fought to get drafted, been overlooked in how many drafts? and finally gets drafted and given an opportunity and then he could just leave the club who gave him this chance after 1 season?

    Like c'mon

    Lol gotta love the pessimism after a loss. This was legit two clicks later but didn't suit your agenda clearly. Screenshot_20180713-021751.png

    Ah the old husband/wife ‘debate’:

    Kelly “I want to stay in Geelong”
    Caitlin “I want to go home to WA”
    Kelly “Guess we’re going home to WA”

    :D

    Fremantles pick 6 and a pick 10-15 would make it acceptable to me. Might get two decent players, might get 2 absolute spuds.

    We simply don't trade to those clubs if they can't replace him with a player as good.
