    What? A pretty high draft pick who has two injury interrupted seasons already in the bank who takes a big step in year 3?

    I think we are talking about 2x very different pathways here...Sweet basically played zero footy in 2020 and lost a year of development...asking him to jump up the way Darcy did (a player who had already showed that capacity for the contest) is both unfair and unrealistic.

    Recruitment reports to Sam, and yeah he does look at it.

    This thread was about the trade period and I was commenting on the trade side.

    Dont shoot the messenger, but interpreting what Power just said, we’re expecting Sweet to step up to number one ruck with help from Martin and English, at least that’s how I understood him.

    Might not be a Sean Darcy level of step up.. Where would you like to see Sweet be this year? Say we play him in all 22 H&A games, at least around a Draper level? Jackson?

    The uncertainty of the salary cap moving forward seems to have had a very big impact on trades for all clubs this year.

    Personally I will be hoping that Sweet can step up to be a solid ruck at AFL level and be able to mitigate the influence of the better rucks in the competition. I wouldn't expect him to play 22 games, I would imagine Stef plays some as well and I don't think we can have both in the same side.

    Draper was chased with a $500k pa contract before he even debuted. Sweet hasn't shown anywhere near that much as yet.

    We've thrown a huge gauntlet down to him and I hope we're not setting the bar of expectation so high he is bound to fail, like we did to 20 years worth of KPFs.

    The interview by the AFL media on Sam was bloody terrible. The guy couldnt come up with a few key questions that were obvious to ask.

    The price of Treloar and the salary reductions has to be worth something though right? We barely paid anything and Collingwood are paying a third of the cost.

    I think that’s where Sam excels. That’s his game. But the start of the whole process, identifying who we can make offers to, that might be his weakness.
