You forget the "official" role Matt was playing...

You've kind of proven my point, you think we are terrible traders and compare us to the field by cherry picking trades, that's confirmation bias. You're also only comparing those trades from the perspective of the team who won.
But if you compare Hampton to Lyons, we gave up 38 for Hampton, got 44 for Lyons not a huge amount of difference and Hampton has a lot more hype about him than Lyons does.
Lets say we paid a couple picks too high for Seedsman or Hampton, if you only have pick 32 and he's worth pick 40 what are you going to do? you already have 2 first round picks, you only plan on taking 2 picks at the draft, are you going to haggle for a couple days to get them to give you back a pick 70 that you have no intention of using and have no need for, or are you just going to get the deal done.
I'm the same about the ruing comment. We seem to be pretty good at setting up trades that are win win. Maric to Richmond netted us Tom Lynch. I think both clubs would have been pretty happy and I was pretty happy for / with Maric at Richmond. Thus far Kedge has proven to be pretty good for Carlton, admitted we're yet to see how we'll go on our side of the bargain with that one. I didn't rue Mattner to Syd, we weren't using his style of play and they did. Stupid us on that one. I'll be happy for Hendo at Hawks, tho that one wasnt a trade. Obviously I dont count Gunston, Danger and Tippett as we were held over the barrel on those ones.
Far be it for me to comment on these things but isn't this supposed to be a Myles Poholke thread?
I hope he, like many others, has a long career to play-out but, if he doesn't debut this year, no dramas.
If he does, good little reward.
The discussion is sort of related, as we traded Lyons for the pick with which we got Poholke.
you'll find most threads on this board basically read exactly the same
Same with other boards.
All in good fun..
Nice little mention for Myles from the coach leading into the JLT
Named in the squad for Friday, hopefully gets a game, be interesting to see how he goes. He's a solid lad, from the vids of him looks to have that Thommo style low centre of gravity.
Very keen to see what this guy can do. Feel like he'll go okay, given his build.
How did the lad go in your opinion?
Was OK. Seemed to get in the right spots when he was in the middle.
First instinct was to look to dish off a handball to a runner, (the simple option) whilst that was good seemed like he didn't want to make a huge error by kicking and risking a turnover.
I really liked what he did in the few moments he was in the game. But he will still be a couple years away. But you wouldn't expect a first year to do that much in a contested footy role. I was really happy with his instincts.
The Crows new Rookies and Draftees....Poholke and the others -
I've been looking through the Crows website and elsewhere online, but I'm still trying to get a good idea of what sort/style of player each of them are.
Inside/Outside Mid blend?
Just can't get a clear overview. If any of them, which are the best Outside-Run-and-Carry-Mids? Somewhat like Smithers and/or Seedsman? And can chase.
Signorello and Galluci both fit that description
Edit : Signorello very capable inside as an extractor as well if needed.
Was like Sloaney in his 1st game where was obviously nervous & was keen to handball as soon as he gained possession.
Would like to see him play again this weekend, as think he will be more composed & we will see him kicking the ball more.
Galluci - In/Out Mid
Poholke - Inside
Himmelburg - KPF/Ruck
Signorello - In/Out
Davis - Small-Mid Forward
Jarman - Small Forward.
It seems we've mainly gone for Mids, with a bit of flexibility to play other positions. Or at least it seems so.
Think we have some converts here...
Was it his family that were already crows supporters?
good read, obviously a very switched on lad!
Myles in the making
