Agreed - Cordy could play 3rd tall or not at all if out of form. He shouldn’t be a lock I don’t think.I’ve always thought Reid would make a gun CHB. Not sure of the fit with Keath coming in as well.
I’d have Keath and Reid ahead of Cordy and Lewi young however.
You get Keath in only and Cordy will be a completely different player.Agreed - Cordy could play 3rd tall or not at all if out of form. He shouldn’t be a lock I don’t think.
Just remember people, Zaine is already the better brother we have had on our list, you have to give him credit for thatYou get Keath in only and Cordy will be a completely different player.
He is a footballer that could play in any era.
Cordy will be a premiership CHF and a premiership back man.
I guess so. Has there been speculation that he may not??
You keen for us to pounce if Carlton can’t make it happen?
Only because we got both lol. Cordy is a good spoiler I think he could be a good 3rd tall defender, but then we’ve got a few decisions who gets the other 3 defender spots. Maybe play JJ on a wing or HFFJust remember people, Zaine is already the better brother we have had on our list, you have to give him credit for that
Sorry but I just don't agree with this. You go back that far and you find yourself;The last five years is too close - when years 1-3 are usually development seasons, an analysis needs players to have been in the system at least 7, probably closer to 10 years to get a full picture of what players can achieve.
I'm like the Swans mate, no fuss and just get the job done. A bloke once offered me $200 for a used drumkit. I settled for a carton of beer and he helped me drink it. We both ended up happy.Are you someone who buys cars, electrical goods and jewelry at full price Wally??
The compromised drafts are a valid point, and yes, future picks are an unknown.Sorry but I just don't agree with this. You go back that far and you find yourself;
a) in the middle of the most compromised drafts since it's inception and
b) back to a time when the bidding system for father/sons had completely different parameters and therefore implications.
When a data set becomes convoluted and shows inconsistencies it simply isn't worth analysing.
I maintain my position that the gap between picks in the early 20's and early to mid 40's is minimal at best and more importantly, not worth the drama that Club officials attach to them.
If the difference between pick 32 and pick 25 is so massive and a potential roadblock to completing trades, then why do clubs give out future picks when they literally have no idea where these picks will land? It's preposterous.
List Manager A: "G'day B. We think player x is worth our 2nd Rnd pick, pick #34"
List Manager B: "That's ridiculous! We have come up with a formula that projects his value at #29 and we won't accept anything less"
List Manager A: "But we only have pick #34"
List Manager B: "Well you're just gonna have to move some things around. You know if you gave us your pick #10 and we give you pick #62 back it actually values him at around #24, which is only 5 spots away from his projected value but hey let's not let a few spots here or there stop us from getting this deal done."
List Manager A: "Uhh..."
List Manager B: "Hold that thought, List Manager C just walked in."
List Manager C: "Hey, we hear you're interested in player z"
List Manager B: "Oh yeah, he's really gonna add some value to our team. Future 2nd get the job done?"
List Manager C: "But that could fall anywhere from 19 to 40 depending on compo picks"
List Manager B: "Look, I know we finished the year off strong, our youth look promising and we've had 4 blokes nominate us but we've crunched some numbers and we reckon that pick is gonna land at about #23. We actually anticipate that we are gonna go backwards a bit next year. It's actually a great time to get our future pick, I swear."
List Manager C: "I'll go get the paperwork"
List Manager B: "You're a bloody ripper C. If only it was this easy with everyone. I've gotta go back to A now, he is such a stubborn and unrealistic prick. Can you believe he's only offered #34 for player x?"
They're all mates, most of them have worked together for years. They're all doing what's best for their clubs and it'd very rarely be personal.Does anyone know how it actually works between the clubs? Is there an external person in the middle who relays the messages or is it direct contact between clubs? Surely some discussions get Very heated? Eg today with Hill.
