    Or a GWS or Gold Coast supporter knowing your initial start up concessions have now evaporated and you're destined to be just a feeder club for the Southern states and will always struggle to rise above that deadly mid table vortex despite almost every year having a good draft hand?
    Absolutely, and it's why I've always expressed a bucket of admiration and thanks to Richard Colless on this forum for what he set in train 25+ years ago. (Well, that as well as having been lucky enough to become semi-friendly with him back in the days - enough for the odd long lunch; just a top bloke). There's been plenty of people since march forward and contribute to the vision he had for what makes a great club, but boy we were blessed to have him.

    My admiration is based on him achieving a smooth succession plan - one of the hardest corporate tasks in my experience: both for him, and for CEO's.

    I thought it would make sense for North to take both Wardlaw and Tsatas, because they're good friends to reduce the chance of them leaving (a bit like Rowell & Anderson). However, North are apparently very keen on Sheezel. So now I'm wondering whether they should trade for Essendon's pick 4 and take all three. They need to inject talent into their list ASAP and are better off investing in this draft than next provided there are decent players available and with picks 2,3 & 4 they will get good players.

    How they could get the deal done? Would it be worth offering their future first, which could be pick 1, or is that just too much to pay (essentially giving up (potentially) three #1 picks (errghh) for picks 2,3 & 4 this year? Alternatively would Port's future 1st plus pick 23 be enough? I suspect not, not even if they threw in pick 40 as well.
    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated, and well supported in logic and argument than others. -Douglas Adams, author (11 Mar 1952-2001)

    West Coast or Hawthorn will be pick 1 next year

    Why would the Bombers take that deal?

    Besides I’m optimistic we can prize it from Dodoro’s fingers? Would we give up all our picks for 4?

    If you were the Bombers, would you rather have North's future first or picks 14, 17 & 42? It might depend on the stage of development of your list but I think I'd be more interested in the future first, likely to be a top 3 pick.

    Essendon need a top pick now, not next year. They'll take whoever is left after Norf have their picks.

    Doubt we'll get to do anything with 14 & 17 other than use them ourselves.

    Agreed, I think that other clubs want to have lower picks but those with them are quite reluctant to give them up in a draft that apparently lacks depth.

    Don’t think North would trade their future first . If they finish bottom next year Harley Reid looks a likely No1 pick the kids a jet .
    Would be even a chance to be No1 in this draft if he was eligible
