We’ve always been fair and reasonable with our trading. We’ve gifted the Suns and Saints good players for next to nothing.

Can’t see the relevance in terms of why NM would give us anything at all for CCJ if they can get him for zilch.
Don't like it - just reality.

Getting picked off a lot lately.
No bitterness there at all. A few around here should take note. Our club is bigger than any player and will move on from this and thrive.
hope so, because at the moment it appears we’re getting picked off year after year. From assistant coaches, to fringe players and to now young players.

Not overly worried about losing CCJ but I will be pissed if Norf offer nothing.

The relevance was to the point about us doing the same thing if we were Norf. Going on how we conduct our business I don’t think we would walk him to the PSD. I’m certain we would be reasonable and trade one of our second round picks.

I just suspect that pick 20 is probably a bit too high a price for them to pay and that we’ll have to accept something less than that.

I believe it will be their pick 38 and a swap of 2nd round picks. Maybe their 20 for our 26. That feels about right to me.

A 2 Metre tall, who was a pick 20 in his draft year, with 4 years of development at the Premier club in the comp & is coming into his prime.

Pick 20 quite frankly is a steal, if North draft a "tall" at that pick they'll have to wait years to see what he MAY become. With CCJ they've got a pretty good idea.

If they dud us & try to get him for a rubbish 2 nd rounder, or worse still through the PSD they'll pay a heavy price down the track, from the Tigers & possibly other clubs too.

Pick 20 is what he's worth, but I'd rather keep him.

Riewoldt's likely happy that 2 of his rivals to take his spot next year are gone. No pressure to retain his spot

A future 2nd round pick?
Would set us ok for next years draft, or we could on trade it.

Yep, because both of those players were such a threat to him.

I recall that when Knights went to Essendon he basically forced out Lloyd for their next generation forward Jay Neagle. Didn’t work out so well.

Games are earned not gifted because it’s “your turn”.

Is he going to North to play ruck?
To a club where their current ruckman hasnt missed a game for 4 years, and plays his best when he rucks 90% of the game?
Seems an odd choice.

But i dont reckon you can blame him for going to a club that is offering him close to $2m, and pretty much guaranteeing his career will last at least another 4 years. (it may indicate he lacks a little confidence in his own future though.)

In fairness, Goldstein is six years older than our first choice ruckman so if that's why he has left it doesn't seem unreasonable especially when you are getting a longer contract on more money. I just hope we get some form of compensation and it will be ironic if Chol gets us a better pick. Like most others I am disappointed he is going but if you take the emotion out of it you can see it makes sense for him from both a football and financial sense.

Coleman Jones would have taken his spot next year undoubtedly. He wouldn't even need to improve to do it either

Neagle wasn't up to it, but Lloyd was offered a contract that would've made him Essendon's highest-paid player. He just didn't want to move out of the goal square and retired out of spite.

Imagine if Jack told Hardwick he wasn't moving from FF in 2014? Can't have the tail wagging the dog.

Trade period starts Oct 4th.
Expect paperwork to be lodged then.
Deals can be done anytime but that's when it becomes "official".
Sure, but do we know that CCJ has asked the club for a trade to #lolNorf? Or it is still agent leaked media guesswork?
