Paddy McCartin?
If we still want to work on landing Dunkley, then we'd be looking to Kyle Dunkley to demonstrate our continuing integrity, wouldn't we?

If that’s the only pick we use, definitely.

Surely everyone already understands how deep and real our integrity is

Okay, let's take out the fact that we want to target Josh next year. Kyle Dunkley is a defensively oriented medium midfielder who does plenty of blocking work at a stoppage that helps clear a path for midfielders to get through. He's also got very good goal sense when resting forward. We haven't had someone like this since Heath Hocking retired and it's one of the biggest holes on our list.

The guy is a perfect example of what we need from a delisted free agent and someone we should be targeting.

Yeah in theory but he was pretty crap at afl level. To be fair he was stuck behind clay, trac, vines and brayshaw. Still though he has the traits but I don't know if he'd actually be any use.

possible upgrade on Mitch Hibberd - or comparable. Not a waste of a list spot if we still want old Joshy.

God I hope this happens in next year’s trade period Ned Guy vs Dodoro

Dodoro will destroy Ned Guy at negotiating table Bulldogs, north, hawthorn have had their way with him I think is only fair that Dodoro gets his turn

Collingwood don't really have anyone we'd want tbh. Most of their best players are in their late 20's and 30's, and they'd never trade some of their good kids like Josh Daicos.

Don’t also forget we brought over the menacing Damian Cupido

I've never quite understood the running joke about Cupido.

He was an obscenely talented player.
