Especially when its not like they re-signed Daniher. The desire to leave is still there and will probably creep up again next year.Yep.
Robbo putting Geelong and Essendon in the top3 winners when they did exactly the opposite of each other (One traded out the star player and got a boatload of picks - the other didn't trade the star player at all) is just amazing.
Essendon really failed to improve its list at all in the trade period - and to my view the point of the trade period is that it's an opportunity to improve your list. Opportunity missed doesn't equate to a win. By this measure Richmond were complacent and didn't make any moves either.
I remember when Gaff got a huge offer from North last year and not only did he not leave he also signed a long term contract. Didn't see the media call us the 'big winners of trade week 2018' its was just considered basic list management.
