  1. Re: Gold Coast Suns Viability - How Long Have They Got?

    I would suggest you now have a better than half decent team to barrack for in September (and for a few years) that does not require you to consider any heresy like a second team.

    My ideal is 1 pick difference and I don't consider that to be impossible.

    Re: Roarke Smith

    I really like Roarke, but he has had enough chances.

    If we keep him at Footscray, I would say ok, but really he should be looking to move on with his life.

    I might be on my own, but I think McLean is a player who can work on the inside but also outside. He is good in the air and has an ability to get clear and use the ball well.

    His skill set would be well suited if his endurance is there.

    Effectively Dry Rot is suggesting Pick 12 for St Kilda 2020 1st Rounder.

    I can't see St Kilda doing that, but we couldn't refuse.

    We could on trade for other picks that would cover JUH.

    How does a player who has been on the list for just the mandatory 2 yr draftee contract constitute a salary dump?

    They would simply be replaced by another draftee on the same wage.
