Tough call, the twist is that Chol is an unrestricted free agent so we'd get a big fat 0 if we lost him whereas CJ requires a trade.

Very difficult.

CJ is a bit slow and one-dimensional.

Chol is flakey but can produce brilliance.

I really don't know.

Going to do a few more years in the VFL is he?
CJ has currency.
Got currency coz he's got potential. We are going for a 3 tall fwd line and Jacks got 1 year left in him. Lynch not too many after that. The cupboard is bare for young key forwards. Need to think succession plan

This is the issue and the fact that both are starved off playing opportunities at tiger land.

chol I think is the perfect support for nank and as a third Key forward.

time to cash CCJ in and see what we can get

CJ for mine...but would either get a game if Soldo was available? Can we fit Nank, Soldo, Lynch, Riewoldt and one of Chol/CJ in the team at the same time? I can't see us sending Jack to fullback!

Reckon CJ will be good so if I had to choose 1 - well he's it.

Happy to keep Chol as well for the time being until we know for sure that Soldo fully fit and able to be in contention as well.

I guess ideally it could be the end of 22 when we'd really have to make a hard call on one of Chol, CJ, Soldo, Samson

If it was who I think would be the better player, I'd keep CJ.

Looking at our list however and we will play Lynch and Jack next year too. I think the 3 of those (Lynch, Jack and CJ) makes us too slow in the forward half. Chols athleticism wins it for me. We have Ryan coming through who I think will replace Jack in a year or so, then we need to draft for Lynchs replacement. Lynch is only 29. I can't see CJ being happy to sit around for 2-3 to replace Lynch.

Therefore for me for list balance I would trade CJ and keep Chol. We will get a lot more for trading CJ also, so it may work out best for us to do that. If say we end up with Pick 9, could CJ get us Pick 3 from Gold Coast? Ie. CJ and Pick 10, for Pick 3?

We need to replenish our mids with top end draft picks and therefore we need high picks, not a load in the mid teens.

CCJ has, overall, more upside than Chol. Less of the eye catching piece of brilliance of Chol but more reliable and will not shy from a contest or go missing so he is our best option between the pair

neither of them have my confidence. Trade cj and try and bump up Chol’s rate to get a higher pick. I’d be going for upgrades to our 2 first rounders to get some classy talls. I really like what I see in Ryan and we have mate and soldo as well.

Honestly? NFI. I sense that if Mabs keep playing well someone will throw a bag of cash at him and there won't be much we can do.

This is my thinking. I've done a ladder predictor and have us finishing 10th. So we have picks 9, 17 (I have Geelong losing the GF again), 28, 29, 41 and 46.

Trade CJ, Pick 9 and Pick 28 to Gold Coast for Picks 3 and 19.
Trade 17 and 19 to Freo for Cerra and a 2022 3rd
Trade 29 and 41 to the Dogs for Pick 18.

We trade out CJ and bring in Cerra and then take Picks 3, 18 and 46 to the draft.
