    Quick tip - every draft is a superdraft one year out. I highly doubt the 2018 pool will be a stronger draft than 2017 by any major stretch. It will probably run slightly deeper, but there isn't going to be that much of a difference in player quality for a 2018 vs 2017 second rounder.

    Yeah I'm holding back serious urges to bite here...

    If you're gonna lump the almighty crayfish into that group then Dahlhaus, even Libba can go along with him.

    Dangerfield made it very clear he wasn't going anywhere else but Geelong, they had zero leverage. They may have some with Lever even if he chooses us, as there's a bunch of other clubs he might be ok moving to. Look at the Carlisle scenario, Essendon weren't happy with the trade offer from St Kilda and then Hawthorn came in and offered two first rounders. In the end St Kilda had to pay pick 5.

    We don't exactly have the best relationship with Adelaide so they could easily play hardball.

    Fair point. I still think two firsts is overs for Lever though. For two firsts Id want Rance or Hurley.

    If Lever chooses our offer, our first should be enough, especially if it's a single digit.

    Tom Mitchell went for pick 16. Dangerfield went for 9 and 28. Lever ain't Dangerfield and he's out of contract.

    If we do happen to get Lever who do we want to see developed forward permanently? I see literally all of Cordy, Adams, Lever and hopefully Young as potentially elite key defenders but they can't all fit down back (still pretty confident on Collins too) and while it's handy to have players who can swing forward I think we'd need one of those guys to develop there permanently. Whose got the most potential as a kpf?

    Imagine a spine in 4 years with Adams, Lever, Cordy and Wood down back and Stringer, Boyd and Young up front with English in the midfield. That sounds ******* ridiculous!

    If it pans out like that, gonna be some epic melts from the Camry's. Just read on their thread they'd do the deal with Pies if they got Pendles and the Pies' first or Pendles/Sidebottom combo. Good thing they're not at the trade table.

    I'm not too bullish about our chances of getting Lever.
    Hawthorn have lost Hodge, Grundy is surely on his last legs at Sydney and Geelong might not have Harry Taylor much longer.
    If any of those clubs decide they want Lever we are toast.
    Maybe it's just my pessimistic Dogs mode kicking in, but I can't recall a top line player who's chosen us.
    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on this.
    Our inability to back up the premiership (on the evidence so far) hasn't helped.

    1. Hawks don't have a first round pick this year. 2. Geelong don't have a first round pick this year, also doubt they have much cap space. Plus Geelong isn't exactly Melbourne, so it's not really home for Lever. 3. Again, Sydney isn't home for Lever.

    Just embrace the notion of being a destination club.

    Even during our Premiership window (2008-2010) we weren't really a massive destination club (Hall and Aker were older not prime players)
    Feels odd seeing that we are, bring on the next 15 years of this group

    Are you a "Tooth fairy" or a "Batman" kind of guy, because history
    paints a different picture. Although technically you can enter
    Footscray as a destination in a GPS so it can be a destination.;)

    I can't ever seeing our MC going with 4 tall defenders.
    IF Lever comes, I expect him or Adams or Cordy to play forward.

    If we did get Lever I'd lean towards something like:

    FB: Biggs - Cordy - Wood
    HB: Lever - Young - Johannisen
    C: Macrae - Bontempelli - Suckling
    HF: Daniel - Boyd - Stringer
    FF: Dickson - Adams - Dale
    R: Roughead - Liberatore - McLean
    I: Wallis - Dahlhaus - Hunter - Picken/Dunkley/Williams/Smith/Webb

    Intercept marking fo' days.

    If we have a top 10 pick I don't think so either. What I said earlier, it depends on what pick we end up with.
