    Taking Carlton as an example of a team with one super gun mid, a lot of hyped early draft picks, and a handful of decent-mediocre established players, am predicting the Suns to make up the numbers in next years finals that's actually a better back line than the Blues.
    Harris will be in there somewhere. We'll see Day, Bennell and Swallow in there somewhere as well.

    Nathan Ablett probably won't be there next year, has did almost as much as Hunt this year. Nathan Krakeour will be there somewhere

    Defence will be something like.

    Harbrow Coad Hunt
    Krakeour Bock Brown

    People having a go at Ablett leaving on radio. Fair enough be upset, but let's not pretend you wouldn't jump ship to a new business/competitor if you were offered more than double what you were earning.

    Not really, Asked if he'd be interested would of been on around 500k a year, said he wasn't then re signed for Richmond. And will get that same kind of money in 2-3 years.

    Surely Jono was talking about the proper Riewoldt.

    I did mean Nick, as he's in the best 5 players in the comp, and not Jack (yet).


    Highly dispute the term 'proper' from Benchy though. They're both guns.

    I think most Cats fans have an issue with the way it was dragged out for so long. All you needed was the announcement to be made on Today Tonight and it'd be Lebron all over again.

    That said, I have no issues with it. He should be able to take whatever time he wants within reason. Doesn't owe the fans a quick answer.

    What? Judd's move to Carlton was way worse and more prolonged than this.

    When should he have announced it? During GF week? That'd be Judd-ish selfish (and I love Judd so not having a go).

    He waited after the Cats were knocked out, and after the GF.

    If anything that's the medias fault, not Ablett.

    Would've been more distracting if he announced he was going during the year, then had to face up with his team mates every week knowing he's only a month or so away from bailing.

    Yeah, I have no problem with it. Just pointing out that from what I've seen most cats fans' issue with him leaving is the way he went about it, not the fact he's taking the money and running.

    Well, actually, it does annoy me that Victoria loses a superstar to a made-up club with no history or point, but that's for another time.

    Harris will be somewhere - like Rover?

    Forgot about Krakour though.

    That'd make me feel better as a Cats supporter. Ablett going to Hawthorn, Collingwood, Carlton or whomever would hurt more.

    Whereas he's going to a brand new club which will be full of kids. It's obviously an extremely enticing challenge, whereas if he just went to another club offering him more money than the Cats could afford without getting rid of players, then it'd be more of a slap in the face.

    Also ftr, what was the max Geelong could afford whilst keeping their list together? And on top of that, what could they have done (i.e. traded players) to open up their salary cap to keep Ablett? I understand the importance of team ethos, but Ablett is a champion. Would have been tempting to get rid of some salary cap space (trading a Corey or Mackie or both) to keep Ablett.

    Anyway I don't know the details of what Geelong could have done so just throwing things out there.

    Btw, with you being a marketing student, your viewpoint regarding the Gold Coast confuses me.
