You reckon it’s game over for Jacobs? Kicked 5 goals and 30 hitouts first game back in the vfl.
The Reid boys are both made of cardboard. Pass.Big no to Jenkins. He’s hopeless. I’d rather throw a 2 year deal at Ben Reid from the pies. Pending he passes a medical and probably put a few triggers on the second year. He’d be one of the better money ball buys IMO
Agree, no more Z clarke, D myers, M baguley. Zaharakis and Bellchambers still have footy left to give but need to start handing over their spots in the team as soon as we are injury free.We have a fair few young blokes. I reckon we stay the journey and keep playing them this and next year.
Then who can we target from James Hird Academy?
In 2 years we might have a system that needs just a key player or 2.
I want it all now too, but maybe we focus on getting games into young blokes and build a culture?
The worst part about that Hickey trade was Grundy sliding to 18. What a monumental balls up.Pick 8 in the 2011 National Draft.
Then traded to the Saints for Pick 25 (and a downgrade of pick 41 to pick 48).

That's not bad list management by the Saints who burned pick 13 on Tom Hickey the year before. Was that Chris Pelchan's plan? He likes lecturing everyone on what they ought to do and taking credit for the Hawks success.
Gonna be honest, I feel as though Petracca is extremely overrated.So hypothetically speaking, petracca is open to leaving Melbourne so he can get more of an opportunity playing inside midfield. Do we have a go at him? Possibly offer up someone like Zaha (dees need run) + a pick?
Zaka and a pick? Unless that pick is a top 10 selection, Dream onSo hypothetically speaking, petracca is open to leaving Melbourne so he can get more of an opportunity playing inside midfield. Do we have a go at him? Possibly offer up someone like Zaha (dees need run) + a pick?
Has he said he is open to being traded or was that part of your hypothetical?Sure, he has disappointed since being drafted. Highly rated juniors who don't live up to expectations have a tendency to be entirely written off. He's certainly not worth a top 10 pick. Atm he's a mediocre hf/mid. But he's only 23. I'm just curious about what a trac who's groomed with a full PS to play full time midfield might look like. You're probably all right, we'd have to overpay. But he's an interesting discussion.
