I think we are barking up the wrong tree in chasing high profile players via trade. The cost is too much and will effect our drafting and trading for years beyond this season.Can you explain the Vardy salary dump to GWS?
Re Cogs and RFA. GWS said they would not hold a player against their will, the wording of their statement left the compensation question deliberately blank. Apart from the injury question marked Sculley, GWS have extracted pretty good currency for their players that leave.
Your draft is predicated on getting Cogs for free which is not how I am expecting it to fall out. If I was in GWS list management, I would want Brander at a discount (traded as a late second rounder) and the first round compo pick from the AFL as a bare minimum.
The knock on Blakey in his draft was his disposal efficiency. I think that came from Bond007. He hasn't fixed it yet he's now 23. IMHO - too late to changeEarly on his disposal was actually pretty good ( Same can be said of Cerra and Brayshaw). They dont do not practice skills like we do and i bet we could turn it around.
Well its not actually a salary dump its just a way of giving them vardy for free .Can you explain the Vardy salary dump to GWS?
This is going to sound blasphemous but if it meant getting coniglio i'd give up brander and vardy for GWS 2nd rounder if it meant they didn't match. Would allow us to trade in Kelly and then potentially say Acres with our second rounder this year.Well its not actually a salary dump its just a way of giving them vardy for free .
Gws at this stage may end up with pick 11-12 .
So coniglio compo not horrible
Maybe even vardy as steak knives in a pick trade in gws favour
They are desperate for a ruck mumford cooked , lobb gone , simpson 16 games in 3 years also 31 , flynn just did his ACL .
Vardy is a proven afl player who is still in his prime unlike mumford or ryder
Nah, on the couch highlighted it this week with replay footage, and they took potshots at JK for his diminishing stats and work rate. Mind you, the stats were horrific, and are very concerning for the run in to finals. Simmo said he would have a talk to JK - I hope he has, and that there is a reaction this weekend.I believe Oscar was playing that role
I dont want to lose brander . We would also have too many mids and most on big salaries.This is going to sound blasphemous but if it meant getting coniglio i'd give up brander and vardy for GWS 2nd rounder if it meant they didn't match.

Lose brander, vardy, 2019 first, 2020 first, 2019 second.
In Coniglio, Kelly, Acres, Swans second rounder, GWS second rounder.
Keep brooksby around, pick up a developing ruck late in the draft. We could easily fit them all into the side. May even allow someone like shuey to finish up his career at HB where his skills on both feet solve that future issue temporarily as well.
Would also allow us to either drop masten completely or delist and pick up as a rookie if no-one wants him.
All completely unlikely but it's nice to dream
I then see Redden playing hutchings role. Acres playing masten's role and Kelly and Shuey alternating between the middle and HFF. Coniglio, Yeo and one of Shuey/Kelly is our centre square start. Sort of like the days of Kerr as the super sub.I dont want to lose brander . We would also have too many mids and most on big salaries.
Yeo shuey gaff sheed redden and coniglio would be s**t hot but it would mean redden and sheed wont get much on ball time .
Kelly would be a very expensive luxury.
Better off going for a guy like acres . Much cheaper in salary/ picks playing wing/flank who will be 26 and primed for on ball once shuey redden retire .
Would probably help if we actually played our next key forward saviour in the forward line rather than on a wing for starters..TBH I personally think anyone expecting a like for like Kennedy replacement is delusional. He's been our best key forward in 30 years. We're not going to pull a fully formed one straight out of our arse.
If Kennedy Retired tomorrow I'd drop one small/mid sized forward and have both Waterman and Allen in the side. It's probably the best we're going to get and targetting key talls is nigh on impossible.
There is a reason he is down back and it is his kicking. I cannot see him being a midfielder.
He was the best KPP player taken at pick 13 in a supposedly weak draft, when gun KPPs are generally taken top 5. So I think our expectations need to be tempered a bit.Would probably help if we actually played our next key forward saviour in the forward line rather than on a wing for starters..
Regardless of whether he stays or goes i'm genuinely curious to see if we've bundled the development of the best KPP in the 2017 draft.
I think he is seen as a last resort, use in case of bulk injuries player. Like big frase has been.Is brooksby injured or out of form? I think he'll be delisted a years end.he cant crack a game even this week!

Don’t forget Williams has had a great last month which probably puts him just ahead of Brooksby being a long term prospectI think he is seen as a last resort, use in case of bulk injuries player. Like big frase has been.
I thought he may have been selected this week but they are obviously prioritising Williams over him.
You missed his point, that we're playing Brander in the WAFL as a wing instead of as a key forward (or even key back), so how the hell is he even supposed to develop his game as a forward?He was the best KPP player taken at pick 13 in a supposedly weak draft, when gun KPPs are generally taken top 5. So I think our expectations need to be tempered a bit.
And even the outright pre-draft KPP heroes take time to develop or don't at all... Weideman, Weitering, Schache? McCartin etc.
He's trying to break into a team stacked with tall talent and is only 20. I'd back our development, it's just going to take time.
