Jack Graham - Premiership Hero. Future Captain. 2 x First Round Picks
Maybe a 1st and 2nd.
My only concern with Graham is injuries. Don’t believe he’s ever had a season not injured. Always seems to be playing with a injury.
Could be a blessing in disguise to trade now

I call crap that gold coast are simply giving pick 7 to anyone that takes Bowes
I'd take Bowes and pick & for a 2nd round pick back the other way. With you, way too good to be true.

Interesting comment, 7 years never made the squad of 40. Never been close to AA.
Your correct he hasn’t , however I believe he has the talent to be , I think he was probably very close to the squad in 18, 19 and 21, much better acquisition for us then Clark imho

It's the money you would have to pay him, which is the sticking point.
You get pick 7 but get 2 yrs at 550'-600k.
That's alot for a reserves player.
They are off loading so they can clear cap space to keep Anderson, & Rowell next year.
They only one worth taking in that scenario is Ainsworth. But they won't let him go

When I heard that, thought surely not true but if so, id immediately do the deal. Give them our 2nd rounder and get pick 7.

We would then be armed with 3 picks within the top 20, better bargaining power with GWS for Taranto and Hopper.

Blair’s guys have become very good in recent years of sending out disinformatio. We are interesTed in this player or that player which never seem to come to fruition and we gend up with someone else. Remember Liam Stocker
why bother such shenanigans with a delisted (blakely) player though?

You're kidding right?
Graham worth a 2nd round pick only.

I wonder if we have had another chat to Logue ? Probably can’t get near what he’s been offered by Norf but with Clarko doubtful and no chance I’ve it been resolved by the end of trade week

Collingwood the Dumbest football club in the country
Is it a $$ and age thing? Dumping salary for their cap and Grundy is coming down from his dominating form so the pies are gettin' out with the curve trending down? Ruthless if it is, and consistent. And its working for them so far - though reckon that is just the Daicos x 2 effect more than anything.

Interesting, i didn't realize we offered Stengle 2 years, but were gazumped by Adelaide who offered him 3 years, (i thought we were not that fussed in parting ways but obviously not the case).

Geelong rang Richmond about picking Stengle up after he was dumped by Adelaide and we gave him a glowing reference, so glad we could help the Cat's out :mad:, reading the article did gave me some joy, he thought he was going to Collingwood but the Pie's got cold feet and pulled out at the last minute, so not only did they miss Shai by 1 pick, they let Stengle slip through their fingers:).
Oh well 3rd time lucky for pie's with Bobby Hill?

Geelong did well out of that, Stengle always had the talent, just took a long time to realise his potential. If he didn't play with some of the others in that team I'd be more than happy to see him get a flag.

Nice to hear Richmond are honest brokers and gave an honest opinion of Stengle to Geelong. Yes, it is a fiercely competitive business, but it is also peoples' lives and Stengle deserved an opportunity.

@zippadee will be even more fuming after the Max Holmes fiasco.

If Grundy goes and McLovin & only Hill comes in. It evens it self out. There's NO 500k clear in cap space. It's not a GC style 'Salary dump'
That's the issue the general public can't work out. Getting rid of a premier ruckman, to only bring in a nothing footballer on 600k 5yrs.
Its unbelievable
