    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.

    Guys.

    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.

    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.
