Petracca is to St Kilda what Wines is to Melbourne, chances of it changing negligible. Also unlike Port, I don't want McCartin in another year or two...

I wonder if McCartin was next on our list in the 2014 draft..? If memory serves correctly the media assumed he was, but I’ve also heard DeGoey was being looked at.

We had him and let him go, he is staying at Port and it is time to move on.

 

No second chances. We chose Toumpas over Wines despite Wines being an absolute standout junior, and best mates with Jack Viney (plus overwhelming Demonlanders demanding Wines) 

Such is life!!

If not PA, where would Wines go? Norf  or Saints? He will be RFA at seasons end, so not cost a club any picks or trades.

I don’t think he is an RFA, I think that’s an error in the article...

I thought the thinking was that we wanted Lynch, and when GC took him BP freaked out and took another tall

Drafted 2012, this is his 6th full year. Is it 6 or 8 years for RFA?

Not sure on the rules, but he's not on either of these AFL lists...

Set to sign a two year extension. 

I'm rather disappointed to hear he'll miss our first two premierships but maybe we can squeeze him in for our third?

Reading through 2014 I still think we picked the eyes out of the draft, I am a believer in the no DH approach.

Stringer had issues outside of the club, yes it impacted his game after a period of time, but when he was drafted he was ready to go. 

Not like the Plethera of hopeless drafting the MFC embarked upon from 2008-13 under the astute guidance of our previous CEO Mr. Whiteboard, whereby we employed under weight and under developed choir boys who looked lovely wearing Blazers. 

I don’t think anyone has ever drafted worse than the MFC between those years

FCS it is no good dwelling on the past and wrist slitting  - tes we got it wrong - but continuing this what if stuff could be soul destroying  

Enjoy what we have with the likes of Clarrie, Petracca, Salem, Hogan, maybe Viney some day, etc

I think this topic has been started else where, but I still would love Ollie Wines in the red and blue at the end of 2018. I know most would prefer a Sloane or Gaff type, but I still froth at the thought of Wines, Viney and Oliver in the guts throwing there weight around.

P.J said last week on the podcast we still have room for a decent player/ F.A

Oliver.

 

Don't forget this club could have and should have picked you.  We even had more intel on you than any other club.  If I were you, I wouldn't give a sucker and even break.

Why would he have wanted his son at the MFC 2013???

He should be thanking his lucky stars that we passed on him and he has gone on to play plenty of finals football in front of huge parochial fans at a great new stadium.  Maybe he could be filthy with the Bulldogs who passed on Ollie twice and have won a flag in that time.

He should be begging us then right?

He’d be a great get obviously, but we have no way of getting him. He’s not a free agent, so we have to trade for him.

We don’t have a first rounder this year, and we’re not allowed to trade next years. Unless we trade one of Hogan, Oliver, Petracca or Gawn, then we can’t get Wines. We won’t be trading any of them, so may as well close this thread unless you enjoy torturing yourselves (which you may, being Melbourne supporters and all haha).
