Cats should be trying to include Sean Darcy in the deal. There’s their ruckman for the next 10 years

Eagles dont need to out bid Freo mate. Thats not how the WA clubs operate.No argument I was keeping it simple in listing Kennedy at 1 & IF he plays 2020 that will be it IMHO, broken body.
I understand wanting to keep Brander having put 2 years into his development & this time last year I was in fierce agreement.
IF we want Kelly its shades of the Judd, quality in/quality out, year 2 is regularly difficult in AFL footy & Kelly has killed it - we dont have the picks, Freo will include Hill in a deal either directly or with a 3rd party.

The two clubs make their pitch, the player chooses one club, the other backs away. One club negotiates a deal.
If Kelly picks Freo good for them, we will go and hit the draft.
We won't get into a bidding war.
The word is Kelly still wants the Eagles. Eagles simply say fine, nominate us and we will sort it out.
Its not that useful in the sense that our biggest draft need is a key forward and you generally need top 10 picks for that but its close enough to fair that id probably do it if he's going no matter what (ie going to the draft). If he is prepared to sign with us for one year i'd keep him rather than take that offer.Thoughts on this potential trade?

You do realise Chris Scott doesnt decide whether Kelly gets traded Stephen Wells does. Any comments from Scott are media fluff that matter about 1 % in the scheme of things. You're getting worked up over nothing.Departed St Kilda coach Alan Richardson revealed Steven was refused a trade at the end of last year — a move Scott backed.
“I don’t mind it in a way,” Scott said.
“I think the era we’ve stumbled into where players think they can request a trade and clubs have to acquiesce is not right.
“So he asked, he wanted to go home for family reasons, they said no. There could be more of it.”

LOL comparing Stevens request to 'go home' to Kelly's situation?
Is that what Scott was inferring here?
Tread lightly Chris....tread lightly!!!!
It's a dangerous ploy though.lol they did it last year when Kelly wanted to go to WC
big man Belly wasn't happy with that
Its widely known that Wells runs the ship on ins and outs as he has a track record as one of the best in the business and Geelong are quite happy to give him a lot of autonomy. Scott has very little say in what happens in that area. So unless you care about PR his views dont matter much.1%? OK.
Well the PR from the coach is a factor isnt it?Its widely known that Wells runs the ship on ins and outs as he has a track record as one of the best in the business and Geelong are quite happy to give him a lot of autonomy. Scott has very little say in what happens in that area. So unless you care about PR his views dont matter much.
