    Thoughts?
    Sounds like bulltish to me, he's already contracted for another season and would be on a fairly minimal salary

    I'm sure the Victorian clubs are in his ear about returning home, but the Giants would have no reason to trade him

    I think our club squarely have their sites on getting Blakey for the best value possible in the draft. It appears the lauded depth of this draft is on the money and clubs will be pretty divided on who the best top 10 are. More than ever clubs will be in a position to get a quality pick/s to satisfy their needs. Will North or Brisbane be at all interested in bidding for him to force our hand.

    Does anyone here know how many points we need and where, when it comes to our first pick, where the ideal spot in the draft he will be for it to be in our favour. Sure it would be nice if he was still not bid on by our first pick but that seems unrealistic to me. Which club will be the one that forces our hand?

    Interesting piece by Nick Bowen contrasting the Hawks rebuild with the Saints - one via trade the other via the draft. What I take from it is that people vastly overestimate the value of picks compared to players. The pick 14 we got for Mitchell has the potential to be a good player, but unlikely to be a Brownlow medallist. Ditto the picks Saints received indirectly as part of the Jaeger Omeara trade - 7 will probably never make it to the same level. I get where Paul Roos is coming from. A player is a known quantity, a draftee is not. Given the likelihood of failure, I reckon players should be swapped for 2 picks not one.

    1000% agree
    Even the sure things like Mcgrath Rayner etc etc are 3 yrs away from contending a F&B let alone a Brownlow

    And no "go home" factor being an Albury boy. Only problem is that he might take a year or two to develop.

    Swap head coaches and probably swap ladder positions as well.

    Richmond have often gotten things wrong in both the draft and trading, but a good 3 drafts has formed the core of the current premiership team. So if you get it right, it can bring success. I'm hoping we're on a similar path.

    2006: Riewoldt and Edwards
    2007: Cotchin and Rance
    2009: Martin, Asbury and Grimes
