    Easy. Umpires fault. Jack watts fault

    Well done Cols. Just shows you how we stuffed up the development of so many players. It can't be that all players bar Jones were not capable. Great that we are going in the right direction now!

    Probably made mentioned already after 200 odd pages but this saga has been handled atrociously by the club. Why the heck would you come out a flame your own player. It really serves no purpose. There are a dozen other ways to say you are not wanted by the club. Watts deserves to go to his club of choice even if it's for pick 60. I don't get the Watts bashers on here either. He is not in the top 10 players on our list.. so be it.. I think most agree that finals will be won by the best bottom 6 or so players in the 22 not the top few. Not everyone of 22 will be super elite.

    With Watts gone, we have a new Messiah!! Two first round picks and big bucks. Hope he delivers more than Jack.

    But what's Goody going to do now that he doesn't have the option of dropping Watts which seems to be his go to strategy? I'm really no fan of Bugg in the forward line. And Melksham is a little overrated.

    Let's just hope we don't miss Watts in the forward line too much next year and hope Weideman takes a big step up. I suspect Tom Mcdonald and Pedersen will have their ups and downs.

    Interestingly, he did average higher votes per game than Gawn, Melksham and a couple of others. Not sure if a couple of extra votes counts for a lot but T Mac having a breakout year in attack scored just 12.6 to Watts terrible 10.8. I reckon we could trade out Gawn too. We have Pedersen to do ruckwork after all. I'm over all this drama and trying to read all the posts. Just hope we get a good deal done.

    Over the weekend, I've accepted that we're going to lose another beloved player in Watts. My attention is on what are we getting in return for him? It better be good cause if we're getting pick 30 something, I don't see how the hell this is going to be a positive trade for us. To the guys that want Watts gone, are you serious that you would rather pick 35 than Watts in your squad? To me, that's stupid.

    Yes! Agreed. Why can't others see that Goodwin the rookie coach actually failed this year. This does not mean he won't end up being a great coach. Even a lousy coach like Buckley took the pies to 4th in his first year cause of a strong premiership list he inherited. I believe he has been coaching better every year despite the results. Not Jack's fault that we started so slow in so many games this year including the last one where everything was on the line against Collingwood which had half its best team out.

    So it seems Lever for Watts and pick 10? I guess that's the main reason we are letting him go. Sounds like a fair trade?

    I'm hoping there is a hidden agenda in play. Like when we tried to ship Trengove to Richmond. I don't see much worth in getting rid of him for a lowly pick.

    Like I've mentioned, it's the Watts expectations that has led to his downfall. If we picked him up now from another team for pick 30, we wouldn't be worried whether he gets dropped or not. Look at Pedersen. The sad fact is we expect him to be our best handful of players but he has not met that standard. Unlike a lot of people, I don't expect him to be a match winner every game he plays but I do believe he is in our best 22.

    I could be the only one, but along the tracks I believe that Hogan will likely go home and Pedersen won't be there long term. I am worried that it's a really short term decision by the coach who knows he is judged by his next two years.
