How the f*** are we gonna?...

Post by desmondo » Thu Oct 05, 2017 1:31 pm

How can we possibly get the 3 S`s (Smith, Saad & Stringer) to the club??...talk is we don`t want to give up our first pick, 11, our next pick 28 MIGHT suffice for Saad. Will we have to give pick 11 to get either Smith or Stringer? and are either of them worth that?. Then there is mention of us giving up future picks, BUT the talk is that next years draft is going to be a 'super' draft so I wouldn`t want to be giving up future picks either. How the f*** is it going to play out??. I`m getting confused and worried #-o

Mate.

There is no chance we go into the draft with 11 if we pick up all 3. Dodoro is good but even he's not that good.

Dodoro and the club are well aware of this, don't believe everything you read in the paper.

IMO 11 to Suns for Saad and 2nd round pick
Our second round picks to dogs/GWS for Smith & Stringer

11 & 28 to Suns for Saad, 19 and 24 (22 if we can get it)

19 to the Dogs for Stringer

24 to GWS for Smith


So it's 11 & 28 for all three.

We have invested heavily in the draft for the last few years, Time to bulk up in more experienced players to support that investment.

How about 11 & Colyer to Suns for Saad + 19 & 24?

Reported today that Aaron Francis wants out, back to S.A.
Should be able to get value from him to exchange for Saad/Stringer/Smith.

With Francis wanting a move home it does open up our options.

It's a bugger because l saw real potential in that kid - but you've gotta give something to get something - and if we land all 3 - its a price worth paying.

We would still need to go to the draft and try for a couple of colts. Clubs that sacrifice drafting in young talent for top-ups - rarely succeed.
If that means sacrificing or moving on one or two others who have been tried but yet to be proven - or just well past their use by date (Langford, Colyer) then so be it.
My material isn't very good..Oh...and then there's the bladder problem.

So.. that`s how :D vingertje

Well done Dodoro, even your detractors should be happy.

And not a magic wand to be seen.
