FAREWELL LYNDEN DUNN

Recommended Posts

Lucifer's Hero    8,907

A big move to take his family to Qld but I hope it works out for him as he will be a regular 22 for them.  With Hibberd, Melksham and maybe Lumumba coming in, giving us lots of depth, it will be unlikely he will play seniors.

at least worth pick 48 from the Lions.

Lynden Dunn is a great bloke with plenty of ability.  Heart and soul around the club.

He remains AFL standard and would walk into the Lions best 18.  

Unlucky that o.mcd has been allowed to "develop" in the firsts in 2016. Dunn made one mistake and was dropped never to reappear.

Not sure what their second round pick is, but it might end up being Dunn and our second rounder for their second rounder, which we could then on trade for Hibberd.  Yes, I know, we shouldn't give the Bombers that sort of pick as our current one should be enough, but if we want to get it over the line quickly then they might look at doing something like that.

I'd be happy for Dunny to move on and I think Brisbane would be a good spot for him.  I still think he has at least 2-3 years left in him.

As opposed to playing in the VFL?

Being paid 300k to play footy and live in Queensland for a couple of years

Such a tragedy

Point taken. But the Bears are going nowhere...

True, but neither is his career with us.  An opportunity to play AFL again and lead their backline, while living it up in QLD on decent money, will be a good way to finish his career.  He is clearly nothing more than depth with us, and I think it would be good to see him getting that opportunity elsewhere.

I'd be asking for their second round pick straight up.

Why would they give that up for a bloke who has played 4 senior games this season, and hasn't missed those games because of injury?  It's not as if he was best 22 this year and went down with a serious injury which forced him to miss most of the year.

I can see them laughing in our faces while they go after other key backs that are on their radar.

If Chris Fagan gets the brisbane job then you can just about pencil Dunny to the Lions.

First round pick, 150-odd games, still fit. He brings more to the table than a lot of second round picks ever do.

But can he still play good, consistent footy at AFL level?  The Lions may take that gamble, but he was passed by a couple of kids this year.  That doesn't necessarily reflect on him very well.

But, we shall see what happens.  I'd be stoked to get a second rounder out of them, but I doubt that will happen.  Third round pick is what I think it will end up being.

Brisbane's current picks: 2,20,24,48,55.....

Possible trades:

Dunn for 48 straight swap  - Think he's worth a little more than that. 

Dunn and Mitchie/Terlich for 24.

Dunn and 45 for 24.

I'd love him, but it says the Lions want a pick in the Top 10 for him.  So that would rule us out I'd say.

I agree. But anyone but The Bears.  

Lynden has already been part of 186

It is a sad end regardless of the cash incentive.

Do the lions even have a coach yet?

No, but the strong money is on Chris Fagan at the minute.

Think Dunn & 26 for Picks 24 & 48 is more realistic.

Agree. Reminds me of the Bailey era when we stamped the papers of certain players and played kids who turned out to be rubbish.

Goodwin should take a leaf out of the Beveridge coaching manual and allow the players to play to their strengths. Dunn has far more ability than O. Mac and Frost. Pick 48 for him is a waste.

He is a keeper for me and let's work on where we can best use him. Otherwise work on an offer you can't refuse scenario.
