    Irrational but, if chocolate jocks pull on the Tricolours, then I will walk away. I hate this bloke more than Shaun Higgins, Milne and Didak combined.

    Would cost the farm to pry him away. Not worth it.

    To expensive for what he offers. If we are going big then start with Cameron from GWS and Andrews from Brisbane. They would slot in nicely at each end. We could do with a specialist small forward. I would entertain Puopulo as he would be cheap.

    On Dalhaus he lost his drive with us so what were we meant to do. It was a no brainer, if you don’t want to play with us then off you go. He won’t be in The best 22 at Geelong soon. They were not expecting Gryan Miers (spelling) to be this good. Plus they have Narckle and Parfit and a couple more small guys that will be very good players. They will regret his contract size and length soon I feel

    Strangely, Narkle is one I view as outside Geelong best 22 right now and I'd hope we ask about him.

    They also have Atkins (tackling beast, playing now and in the best 22) and Sam Menegola to fit into that forwardline. Narkle may seek greater opportunity.

    No for me. Darling can be a bit hot and cold and at the wage he would command he is not worth it.

    That's the rub - I think he is a super player but is he worth 20-30% more than Tom Boyd?

    We could get a Tomlinson (if he is gettable) + Martin for not much more and it would cost us less at the trade table.

    Suspect they'll find room for Narkle, particularly if and when Kelly walks, but gee he's *exactly* the type we need to prioritise.

    Plus how can you not want to barrack for a bloke named Narkle?

    Make it happen Sam Power.

    Is he any relation to Phil Narkle? He was a bloody good player and his wiki page says his older brother also played in the WAFL so the family could have good footy genes.

    Phil Narkle had the best helmet of all time. Bloody thing was like a weapon.

    Re: Jack Darling

    Jack Darling would be a perfect fit for us.

    He is a multi skilled forward at the peak of his powers with many good years ahead of him. His style would complement Naughton perfectly and it wouldn't matter which one was rated the number 1 or 2 forward. its irrelevant they are skilful enough with enough footy smarts to work out how to work in tandem. The flexibility would have Bevo drooling as Naughton could also go back (if needed) and know we still have an A grade forward to kick to + there is also Schache to bring in.

    Getting him to the club, well thats another story!

    I would prefer we throw a Hail Mary whopping deal at Charlie Curnow than at Jack Darling.

    One plays for a club that has a premiership list (in his own state) and one plays for a club that has a recent record that rivals Fitzroy's final years (when they were homeless, had no money and there list was pillaged by other clubs). You'd have to think Charlie is worth a shot.

    I'd prefer Aliir Aliir to Darling.

    Apparently a distant relative of Phil's.



    Looks like it was purpose-built for being fired out a cannon.

    I like the idea of Darling. If played where he plays best he could fill a gaping hole. I'd be all over that.

    My concern on recruiting him is he has the potential to "play multiple roles" and I can see us throwing into the midfield and filling gaps in defence "when needed" and quickly become broken as a player who delivers little. So pass.

    And Cockatoo, if it can be proven he actually exists.
