Unless we were guaranteed of picking up a gun key fwd with that pick then it’s a no, Petty I think is only 24 currently.

We are still very much in our window this year and next. We’ve managed to find some great players in recent times with either later picks or rookie drafts. While May & Gawn are still out there we must go all out for another flag if not 2.

a fit and firing Petty is a huge asset to us. I would hold him to his contract as well.

The main issue i have, which tempts me to trade, is his durability. He misses a lot of games. I'm sure the FD will weight this up if the Crows make a proper trade offer.

Hahahaha chill out Wizard mate you reckon I spend my weekend making footy statistic graphics? It’s come from Fox footy’s ‘the round so far’ , got a problem with it send them an email champ 

Ahh the 3rd and more commonsense option. But champing me is taking things next level.

Did we seriously turn down 2 first round picks for Petty? Not sure who’s recruiter’s made the bigger mistake. 

It was pick 13 + Mcadam. 13 pushed out to pick 19  on the night. Was not some monster offer that seems to be insinuated. Petty has already proven himself to be a fantastic backman, if he’s not a forward that’s where he will play for us for the rest of his career and he’ll be a brilliant Steven May replacement.

I'm not sure. I think it's reasonable to say the jury is still out on Petty in terms of this offer, for sure 

Not because of his form but rather his body. He has struggled with injuries at a young football age so it's fair to say until he gets a full season on the park it's hard to gauge his true worth.

Also it's not unreasonable to suggest that he may not be as versatile as previously thought.

How many games has he played forward? And aside from his great bag of six,  how many goals has he kicked.

That six bag was an incredible effort but I'd bet after that it's inconclusive to say he's a good forward player as well as defender.

Of course it's true to say our fwd line hasn't been settled with the group playing a good deal of games together.

He had a stinker last round and while probably our worst player, certainly wasn't alone.

All in all, I'd be tempted to keep him. One thing for sure, he has certainly demonstrated at a young age that he is a great quality defender.

Petty is a long way off gun reliable forward

Still not convinced

Petty is clearly trying to make up for an interrupted pre season, which isn't helping his form.

As he gets more match fitness across the year, providing he doesn't get injured again, I expect him to start owning the forward 50.

I'm willing to give him his slow start off the back of an injury that can take a really long time to come back from. BUT he has to start taking his chances when they come, I can accept he's going to take time to get back to what he was but we need more from him.

He's got the bye to get some time practicing his skills and kicking, but post bye he needs to be hitting the scoreboard.

I think a real factor in the decision to trade or not was "Petty's importance to our premiership tilt in 2024 and a lesser extent 2035".

Even if the deal was a good one on an assets basis, we didn't have a replacement tall forward lined up for this year and had (have) questions over BBB and TMac.

Draft picks last year were nice but that trade would need to have been serious overs to take that hit to our 2024 list. Edit: especially with question marks over Brayshaw and Oliver at that time as well.

Petty looks six weeks off it and I don’t blame him, I think we rushed him back. But he doesn’t seem to be marking the pill, that’s slightly worry8ng, he was always such a good mark.

I’m not worried about Petty’s form. He’s barely had a preseason, didn’t play for large chunks of last season and will take awhile to find his feet. I also don’t think you can have a forward line of Brown, JVR, Petty and Fritsch. That’s basically pulling the band on the slingshot for the opposition. For mine once Petty finds form we send BBB to a paddock, hopefully McAdam can string 15 games together and our forward half will then become quite dynamic and unpredictable.

Fritsch JVR Pickett

ANB Petty McAdam

interchange Chandler

The way we’re headed it’s going to take a Herculean second half of the season.

1.  Petty has shown he is an A grade key defender. No doubt. Alongside May and Lever, he was a key part of our 2021 Premiership winning tall defence.  
 

2. Petty played his junior footy as a key defender.  That is his place. Where he can use his judgement, height and strength. 
 

3.  May won’t play forever. He has 2-3 years left at best.  Petty is only 24, with 10 years of footy ahead. I’d like to see him re-establish as a key defender. 
 

4. The forward swap should be seen as a make shift option.  I know Petty can mark but he is not a natural forward. His kicking is ok but sometimes lacks the real confidence of a key forward.  I think he’s being “tried” due to deficiencies of alternatives like Schache. 
 

5. We can’t judge Petty based on Thursday night. Heavens. I’d trade out 12 players if Thursday night was as the normal standard they were capable of.  Petty will be better than that match.

He's a beautiful set shot but is lacking confidence this season, you can see it in his approach.

I just think he is lacking confidence in his body at the moment.

Get that right and he will be good to go, forward or back...

I think it's hard to fluke those six goal bags . One of which he had last year. He's got the skills....I think he's down on confidence.

he said the same about pickett this time last year too

two first round picks please - one for every premiership he'll have at the mfc at the end of 2024

Cornes said last week that he thought Adelaide was going to offer 2 first round picks for Petty.

And after the defeat against the Lions , he said Petty was not worth it !

Are you saying that about his form or Fox? 

I have no doubt about his bona fides.

He’s repeatedly tracked opponents all the way to the back 50.

After May gave up the 50 he went and reassured the backline.

There’s not a lot of evidence for this CBF’ed except maybe some confused efforts against Brisbane where everything he tried didn’t work.

Petty’s played 2.5 very decent CHF games.

Then one stinker against great opposition.

Was ok but not great in his half a game down back. Got beat deep a couple of times. (One on one defending was always his weakness though, just like Lever, better when in position to intercept.)

Honestly I think he just needs the freshen up from the bye and will come out and be very good. 

And he needs some sports psychology against Brisbane because he’s been awful the last 2 times he’s played them and clearly they are in his head. Needs to find a way to get through that.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
