The Jaeger O'Meara Thread

Recommended Posts

Thats fine you talk who you want. But I will say it again. Disrespect your own players at your own peril ... treat them like pieces of meat ... hold on tight.

Matthew Bate is in danger of being sent packing...

(Boom)

Lynden Dunn should be traded...

(Crash)

This is apart of footy and we do it every year.

I don't see the odiousness of talking about such a part and parcel aspect of the game as list management.

Deletions are the foundation of list management.

I'm afraid it doesn't say anything about compo picks so it's not clear if our next pick was a compo pick whether that would be in the frame. It just says next draft selection so I'm assuming that it would be until advised otherwise. The point might be moot because one compo pick is AFTER our pick and the other is after the non-finals teams so they're likely to be close together anyway.

The problem I see is when you have a good player like Viney, clubs with low picks will bid for him and if your first pick is after theirs, its goodbye early pick. Bit of cat and mouse. Clubs know we have committed to Viney so they can "risk" bidding a very early pick to force our hand.

I think we can reasonably assume that the earliest pick we have in that draft will have to be used for Viney.

Clubs are not idiots and they will make sure we pay the highest price.

Agree. And Brad Scott alluded to this when the discussion was on Jack Viney several weeks ago. So I think it's a lock that it will be our earliest pick.

What you say about paying a high price for Viney, Is it possible to cheat a bit here and assuming Scully leaves we go hard at the priority picks for the 17yo's with the compo selections and whatever we get for where we finish and get as many of them as possible leaving whatever is left to claim Viney, getting the best of both worlds.

As my understanding goes we do not actually have to give up a 1st rounder to get him, as a father/son selection we simply put our draft selection forward and if another team bids to we just have to match it with our next best available. If all we have left is a 2nd round then so be it, I could be well wrong here but thats how I understand it

Yes, but because we have already committed to taking him, clubs will make sure we use our first pick.

It is in their interest for us to use our first pick on Jack Viney.

Pure game theory.

It would be great if we could. I'd first offer something like a compo pick + Morton first (you never know, it just might work). I wouldn't give the compo picks away willy nilly, though (if Scully goes, i think he will).

Having 3 first round picks in the 2012 "super draft" is mighty tantalising. Would it be worth throwing the kitchen sink (both compo picks) back at GWS for Patton, effectively making it a Scully for Patton trade. As they say, a quality tall is always more valuable than a quality small.

You have your head in the clouds if you think for a moment Patton wont be at GWS next season!!

Yeah I understand that but as I said assuming Scully leaves as I think he will (personal call) it has been stated we will be given 2 first round draft picks, now as this draft is apparently so shallow if we use our first 3 rnd 1 draft picks and a player or 2 whick we have to get rid of any way to get our hands on a couple of the 17/yo/s from the super draft therefore only leaving whatever we get next year to get Viney the following year. and as the trade period is before the draft period would this not also give us a rnd 1 pick to potentially get a decent player from another team, leaving potentially only a 2nd rounder to get Viney which as our best available pick is still enough regardless of what the other teams bid. Would that not be a massive win/win for us or have I got this all wrong

I believe that FS nominations and bids come before trade week, therefore you cannot trade away the pick that 'won' that bid.

That is my understanding.

PS: I'm not sure if GWS were to take Scully, if we would get compensation picks that we could use in the O'Meara trade??? It may be that we get compensatory picks to be taken from next year (2012) on >>>...

So how would this work, would we have to trade Sculls instead of him walking??? to get a shot at O'Meara?

Absolute rubbish. He wants me to talk players ... I won't do that. I know the rules ... I just wont "belittle" our boys.

Was Kyle Cheney "belittled" when he was traded to Hawthorn for greater opportunities in return for a pick upgrade exchange?

Would Matthew Warnock be "belittled" if he was traded to Carlton to bolster their key defence and have a chance to play in a premiership in return for a similar pick upgrade?

Look well played to you - you've had me going for a long time. But it's apparent that all along in every post you've just been taking the pi55 - it's impossible that anyone could seriously hold the ridiculous opinions you post. Joke's over now - you win.

Trade your depth away all you want in this draft. This is not the draft to do it. But, its not up to you where you send the player ... its where they want to go. Then the other club has to want him. Then it all comes down to price. What if they offered you a 3rd round pick .... How is that an upgrade .... ohhhhhhh????? Its not. If we are only going to use 3 picks in this weak draft .... penny will drop for you one day. Its only an upgrade if you use it.

I could say the same to you. :) Think thats game set & match. But I'm not convinced the penny will drop for you.

If our recruiters are to go down the O'Meara track then I trust that whoever is looking after our interests has been to see the player and his family already.

This would apply irrespective of how the Scully scenario pans out. We're part of this competition and we should aim for the best quality players along with all other clubs in the competition. With the impending advent of free agency we've got to get used to being in the kitchen and to withstanding its heat.

Different thread ... same shtick - you're pretending to misunderstand the argument.

I said 3 players have to go from the senior list -

You said you wouldn't name them because it would belittle them

I asked does it belittle Cheney or Warnock to trade them?

Yes different drafts - same requirement that 3 players have to go from the list.

It doesn't matter how deep the drafts are - 3 players have to go from the list.

I understand that we may only use 3 picks and I understand that an upgrade has to be in those picks to be effective.

The Cheney upgrade was a 3rd round upgrade.

But you don't even have to use the pick and it's not "belittling" to get Matthew Warnock to the club he wants to go to for pick 99.

The bottom line is 3 players have to go from the list and talking about trading them is not belittling them.

You jumped to the wrong assumption again ...

You know your wrong. Your Warnock example was proven to be NO PICK UPGRADE ... its YOU who was arguing for pick upgrades. You are dreaming if you think its a major improvement in this draft.

All you are doing is jumping down my throat at every opportunity ...

Why

a/ Because I wont tell you how the Scully trade will be done ... if he chooses to go. B) Which I hope he does not.

b/ You have no concept of diffrent drafts diffrent strategies. Because you have no ability to gauge draft depths.

c/ You dont understand who ultimately holds the power when it comes to trading, contract or no contract. Price is negotiated by both parties ... in "theory" GWS could offer us picks 1,2,3,5,7,9,11,13,15 for Matty Bate ... be if he wont go ... you've GOT NOTHING.

I acknowledge from your other post you have to move players on. See the word "YIP" ... but I would not name them ... irrespective if you ask 1 or 2 times ... even if you do add/change your post the second time. :o

You can ask 20 times and I wont "belittle" our boys. As I said before you do understand the rules which I've given you credit for on more than 1 occasion ... However, you have no ability how to apply them, you have no ability how to formulate strategies.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans.

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time.
