The only trade they/we go for is our first plus Bolton for their first pick.I “8/Sq
Ralph will have him dreaming of a very large income.
If he agrees to hold out for that and Adelaide makes a suitable offer all we can do is try to persuade him to stay.
In our favour is that he appears to be well settled with lots of young mates at Richmond and he would realise that he is not going to be so happy at GC.
If the only way to get him to Adelaide is to give up pick 2, Adelaide would be wise to take it.
It is also true that Adelaide have a pretty poor record for good trading in the immediate past.
Fill in names here of players taken from both Carlton and Richmond.
They don’t really get into it carefully. Anything could happen.
My strong preference however is that nothing dies and Chai stays a tiger.
In other words I feel we would’ve far better off keeping Chai than drafting Anderson.
Then we will pick up Anderson who will turn out worse then Fiora and Bolton would be the next McLeod.
Only swap him for a player you know that will help the side now.
