This is so incorrect it’s silly. Once a player decides either Fremantle or Eagles that’s pretty much it. There might be posturing to get the trade request ie lobb last year but once a decision is made it’s usually final.
Fremantle have nothing to gain by strong arming kelly if he requested west coast can’t force Geelong into a to good to be true trade
Its Bay 13 stuff: the other mob have done the wrong thing, they are trying to screw us.WCE don’t do these things like trying to poach players one yr into a contract , the Kelly camp obviously aroused WCE interests and why wouldn’t they be interested if Kelly wanted out of Victoria..
WCE tried to facilitate a trade which may seem like poaching to people who do not understand..

That’s what I’m thinking also. Unless Freos offer ends up significantly more than WCEs, which could happen if hill requests out.Both have made good offers if you believe what has been reported. Our high picks are going to give Geelong good leverage over WC. I think we will only come into the picture if WC can't satisfy Geelong, then Geelong will try and push Kelly our way or try to convince him to stay again. If he is really keen to come home this time, and he can't get to WC, he will accept us, I think.
Lure Tim home?Kind of goes both ways though, are WC all talk to try and lure Kelly home for much of 2018 but then actually fail to get the deal done. You can act like they are the good guys just trying to get TK home to his family but we all know if TK had an average year last year then they would have had no interest in trying to poach him last year.
There were late rumblings that Fremantle were willing to offer pick 14 for Kelly if he would agree to join the Dockers, but nothing ultimately came of this.A frenetic final thirty minutes has seen big names Dylan Shiel and Dayne Beams get to Essendon and Collingwood respectively in the 2018 AFL trade period, but Tim Kelly will remain at Geelong next year after the Cats and Eagles failed to broker a deal before the deadline. » VOTE: Grade every...www.theroar.com.au
lol they did it last trade period...Freo offered pick 14 for him even though he nominated WC
Not sure whats more embarrassing, posters telling me it didnt happen or posters cant remember 8 months ago
sorry if facts counter your 'silly' opinion
I get the feeling that in last year's trade period the non-negotiable price for Geelong was the 2018 Premiership Cup.More than WCE want to pay and less than Geelong want to get so probably about right.
20 and 22 are second rounders though really. They picked him at 24.......That’s less than what they wanted last year. We refused to hand over 20, 22 and a first rounder.

Unfounded rumours and it was under the provision that he would want to join them.
Course Fremantle are interested they would of done there due diligence however I find it incredibly unlikely they tried to upsurpt west coastshifting the goal posts
all i stated was that Freo tried to poach Kelly even though he nominated WC..several posters stated they didn't including yourself who stated it was 'silly'
well done on proving yourself wrong
ps I wont bother showing you the video i found of Peter Bell stating on the 1st day of the trade period Freo were interested in Kelly
We turned those two second rounders (and a third rounder) into four second rounders on draft night last year. So two very late first rounders is a significantly better result from our perspective.20 and 22 are second rounders though really. They picked him at 24.......
I’d rather have somehow managed to package picks in the 20s than having to pay 2 firsts now when he’s having a Brownlow fancy season
does not work like that.Tricky situation now, if reported thinking is to be believed. Kelly wants WCE but hasn't ruled out Freo.
Freo have better picks. Geelong knows that. Why deal with WCE unless they beat Freo's offer somehow? Come last day of trade period Geelong says to Kelly, sorry mate can't get you WCE but we'll do a deal with Freo. Kelly says yes.
WCE will pay through the nose. It'll take plenty to beat Freo's 1st pick.
How did Kelly's manager allow him to say this? Perhaps a little ticked off at WCE after last year and making sure they just offer up and get the deal done this time????
Players normally nominate one club and one club only. Then your scenario comes true. Kelly hasn't done that here. Remember Dylan Shiel saying how close he came to switching to carlton at the last minute to get his move back home, before Ess coughed a kings ransom for him. I'm expecting a similar situation here unless WCE offer up plenty, earlier then the last day of trade period. That allows Geelong time to do other deals.does not work like that.
Kelly will decide on West Coast and will go for unders.
Cats will use the picks to trade for other players.
