Farewell Dean Kent

Next number depends on how many goals Jeff Garlett kicks in 2019. Hopefully lots!

The sequence = the number of goals he has scored per season since 2011 

Well done. 

Garlett is like the 1990s Demons. Just a small illustration that Jeff has bounced back from down years before and we do have someone on the list who can actually kick an average of 2 goals a game.

So what does it have to do with Dean Kent?

Sorry mate - and to all those who wasted time trying to figure it out while I slept peacefully through the night. 

Was in response to Caligua flipping out and demanding pick 30 for Kent as he supposedly kicks 2 or 3 goals per game. 

I should have made that link clearer. Though I get the sense that people are quite happy with some pre-trade week diversion.

put him down for 40 plus goals in 2019 then.

Can anyone confirm his partner has moved back to WA this year?? 

happy wife, happy life, maybe not so happy Jeff this year

Hmn, sad if true. It could explain, things.

If STK are prepared to offer him 3 years then they value him higher than a pick 75 IMO, but we'll take what we can get. When on he's a gun, we just didn't see it enough so realistically won't be missed.

I agree. Saints say Kent is a skilled strong fast midfielder who will greatly benefit through mid running. Yet they downgrade his value ??? FFS

4th round pick which will end up as pick 62/63 is still an insult.

Saints just acquired pick 39...

Done deal if you ask me :)

Won't happen for just Pick 39.  They can get him for nothing in the pre-season draft.  That deal, with us giving them a pick back, is more likely to occur at this stage.

yeah cant see that happening unfortunately, getting one of our thirds back into the second round would be a decent result.

Done. Pick 65 - a bit disappointing.

Good luck to him. He can’t knock back a 3 year contract.

Hopefully he gets over his injury woes and plays some good footy just not against us.

Gone for 65, that’s a head scratcher.

Possibly...but what was anyone really expecting ?

An injury plagued and inconsistent non best 22 player on the fringe.

Good luck Kent

Good luck to him indeed. 

Kent nailing that set shot from 50 against the Eagles to put us into the finals is a good memory to have of him.

More disappointed he has gone - a really good player when fit but it was just not often enough.

Hope he goes well at the Saints.

I always liked him when he played, but there's no point matching a 3-year offer to somebody who can't get on the park. Good luck to Kent, but I really can't see much sense in this for the Saints.

Pick 65 isn't a head scratcher - he could have left and got there for nothing. We take it and move on to the bigger fish we have to fry.

Fit and with any continuity he was best 22 - its a horrible trade.

Rubbish trade but nobody else wanted him and he was not contracted. 

A lot of wasted development for pick 65.

Is it just me or do you get the feeling Mahoney is a bit soft on trades. I get the feeling he doesn’t see us like the power clubs. Even with vandenburg he states this shows we are a destination club like we need to prove it like a little brother proving themselves. This trade was another cross. No tick from me.

It's not that much of a head scratcher. We didn't have a leg to stand on in any negotiation. We've seen how long these deals seem to take, if we've got bigger fish to fry, there's no point wasting time on the small stuff.

Best of luck to Kent. It wouldn't have been a hard decision given the choices on the table, but I agree with the MFC position. I reckob Josh Mahoney himself would have said "you'd be mad not to take that" on hearing the offer, and expect he goes with the MFC's blessings.

Ignoring for the moment whether it's actually Josh Mahoney's call, I completely disagree. Trading (plus free agency) is not about individual deals but the final outcome. By any measure the overall result of our list management in the last few years has been outstanding.
