  1. Right - so only trading up can give them two top 20 picks. Top 5 in fact. I agree there’s a solid reason trading to 8. Seems more likely p3 will trade... and for some reason I can’t get that excited about Young.
  2. Let’s say Kemp at 8 could be an option. But what happens if we bid on Green at 3? GWS have 6. What are the rules for them to do this trade to Geelong: p6 for 14&17. I understand they get Green with 14 and later picks, then still have 17. They’re not going to do nothing and waste 6 if they can do the split. Or am I misunderstanding the system?
  3. Welcome to DL Ohio. In answer to your question- you don’t have to worry, mostly everyone here is an expert on every player from 4 minutes of video highlights. Having not even watched his footage I can tell you Kemp will clearly be a superstar. Unless he becomes Trengrove-mark-II. Somebody else will likely have a more illuminating answer you your valid question.

    Ahhh. Of course PSD / ND. So he’s not remotely in the conversation then. GC should select him, no question? But sounds like he will extend another year

    Thanks DC, I’m sure you’re right. Then why the continued noise? And comments from his manager after trade period closed. And if @Deefiant is right about around 25, then why did we inquire about him? Perhaps that was that before the end of trade. I find the trade value and player movements confusing, I guess that’s why all these guys do it full time

    What's most likely LH? You seem more across player movement/contracts than most. Would GC really use their first pick on him? Let Anderson slide to 3? Or will he more likely just re-sign? If PSD and GC select him, what does that mean for his free agency status next year? If he leaves they'll get another pick 1 or 2 anyway a year later? If GC pass, would we need to take him at 3? Or 8? Seems our draft position has so many potential strategies it hurts my brain.
  7. Wasn’t a genuine suggestion... BUT GC do need players who actually want to live in Qld. Miserable if they’re all homesick. They have culture problems more than talent problems. The Wagner boys are good footballers, at their ‘peak’ and well liked guys. They’d be a good addition to the GC squad. So more seriously, both Wagners plus 2020 first round for King? They surely don’t need another 2019 draft pick, and no high level player is going to GC. What will St Kilda offer that’s better?
  8. BOTH Wagner boys for pick 2? Or King? Not remotely a fair deal, but they need players that want to be there. Help the talented kids they already have enjoy Qld. It’s not exactly a bad spot to be an overpaid footballer.
  9. Butting in... I want him to straight bat with more confidence. I'd like Goody to say "the game style requires all 18 on the field to function at a very high level. When it doesn't work it fails completely, but when it does work it's football that will win finals". I agree with @Sorry kids that his media impression matters to the players, even subconciously. However, I also believe @stevethemanjordan that Goody is a world different when not on camera. Goodwin is making a lot of mistakes, but he's learning...
  10. Gosh, 500k. Good career choice, stay fit + get rich. Slightly OT, but I was put off by the ‘pace setters’ when the players were running in pre-season. In that it surely falsely enhahnced their times. Faux data set perhaps didn’t help.
  11. Demonland pre-game articles by @Whispering_Jack are among the most brilliant writings in any sport media. “Scream” v WC deserves some kind of sports literary award. I’m a great fan of @The Oracle also and @george_on_the_outer on the post game, consoles my wounded pride at being a Dee. I’m sure it’s been said before... but the considerable work and passion is much appreciated, I’m sure by all.
  12. This must be the real question. The only players to have markedly improved under Goody are players that fit his team game style (whatever that is) - like ANB who can make numbers around the ball. Roos gave the players roles based on their attributes and those players rose up. Harmes is maybe the only player Goody gave a signature role - and he shone. I hope he can pull it together. But the fact there isn’t a great deal of exciting player development with a list of extreme talent... this has to be the big question
  13. It does seem a combination of so many things... the team looks at sea. The game is now perfectly suited to our former No1s - Watts and Hogan
  14. I admire Goody has a plan and he’s implementing ruthlessly. I didn’t like Goodwin at first. But his commitment to his vision is winning me over, even though I don’t understand it.
  15. There really isn’t an excuse to be this poor. The list on paper has incredible young talent that should see significant improvement year on year. Chemistry solidifying. Confidence building. There are similarities to last season where we were scored on too easily, this year there’s a lack of scoring power in the fwd half now too. I’m a believer that this can turn around. But I confess to having absolutely no idea why the team as a whole is performing so badly. I can’t pin this on specific players.
