Farewell Dean Kent

Recommended Posts

Not thrilled about it. Always a fan and we don't have a lot of players like him with speed who can kick a goal. He wants the opportunity, fair enough.

Shame his body couldn’t hold up. Enjoyed watching him at full flight and gave us one of the best moments in 2018 with his long goal in the West. 

Good luck Kenty, hope it works out for you.

No less than a second round pick

Been offered 3 years, whereas we probably only offered 1 or maybe a second with a trigger (not get injured all the time!!). I really like what he brought when he was out there, but in reality he's fighting with Melky, Trac, Spargo, ANB, Fritsch and then jeffy and JHK for 3 or4 spots in the team each week.

Got a link to something, mate? I believe you, just wouldn't mind reading/hearing more about it.

Shame to lose him, has potential but is no use to us when always injured, package up with Tyson for something half decent. If Kent and Hogan go, thats 9 list changes already? Sweep that broom lol

It’s a shame he couldn’t get a good, injury-free run at it. Good luck Kenty.

St Kilda dont have a 2nd or 3rd round pick currently

What??  SO how will they trade for Dean?  A future pick?  A player swap?

There is quite a breeze of change on the list - Although apart from Dean and the retirements, all are VFL standard.

Could not agree more. Hope he gets a good run but a slight hammy when playing us!

St Kilda wouldn’t let him go for any less than an early first round pick.

The writing was always on the wall - there had been rumblings during the season that he wanted to push up to the midfield, and I don't think he would get that with us. 

With him being out of contract I can't see us getting a whole lot for him but, then, is he worth a whole lot? If the Saints get their hands on a third rounder you would probably take it.

This sucks! One of my favorites. I rate him easily best 22 and light years ahead of Spargo, ANB, Garlett, JKH, etc.

Early first rd for Billings, you have to be kidding.

He is a 2nd rounder at best

That’s his value, not what it’d take to get him. Saints seriously overrating their list

I think Kent is worth a pick between 30 and 40 which the Saints don't have.

Might have to form part of the Pruess trade; hence a three way deal.

Sad to see him go.
