Then if Kelly isn't interested we just go to the draft. 2 quality young players on minimum chips sounds good to me

what a ridiculous comment, we won 11 games not 3. Our list may not be premiership material but it is a long way from pretty ordinary.

I have said this multiple times but noone seems to agree with me.
Instead of paying huge bucks on established players - why not throw huge bucks on draft analysis and expertise to make sure we get our picks right this year?
YesI understand we have a salary cap issue to deal with but that should be kept separate.

What makes you both think Kelly isn't interested?

I'm quietly confident he'll be a Saint next year.

But we have to pay a lot to a pretty ordinary list.

The way around that is to dump a heap of money on the oldest players so that one day you don't have to tell an undeserving player they have to take a pay cut (like happened with Luke Ball).
With older players the money under the cap returns to the kitty in only a few years not a decade.
Keep payments low to young players, pay big bucks later when needed like to keep a potential free agent or to attract a free agent.
The more you know, the more you know you don't know.
When I was a young child, I knew that I knew so much about so much.
Now that I am old and know so much more, I know that I know so much about so little, and so little about so much.

Well done to North.
Kept them honest.

Forcing the Tiggers to pay big BIG B I G bucks for Dusty will ensure they will never have enough depth to win flag.

Though the Stkilda Plan, whether one agrees with it or not, was to land a Big Fish, and North by their process have made it much harder for the Saints to achieve this.

North on the slide should have been just maximising early picks, but have instead been desperate to land a Big Fish or two at whatever the cost, and so have driven up the price to massive heights. We had banked the TPP for the max of 5 years, prepaid players etc as this was meant to be the year. Maybe it will still be the year though Kelly is now the one green bottle standing and if we do land him it will be for huge $$ too. so in this our supposed Big Fish year the $$ advantage that we were meant to have above and beyond every other club is not there.

That the TPP is being hugely bumped up in 2018 has made it easier for all clubs to make big offers.

I thought the bank was for a free agent though.

Glad we dogged that bullet.
Like we of all clubs needed someone who was close to a Rebels bikie gang member.
But worse the son of the bikie who fled Australia before he was officially expelled.
It wasn't for his charity works that the Feds wanted him out of this country.

Dusty was a Free Agent.


Lately the club has backpedalled somewhat by saying by trade or FA.

I think when the Saints started on this path they thought Free Agency would become common for BigFish. It has in the main however been more a path for guys not getting opportunities at their clubs to swap clubs and these guys are not BigFish.

The coming exception could be when a swag of GWS all hit FA at the same time and where GWS would not be able to offer them all good money to stay. But that is not this draft period.

Stuff Dusty, bigger things to worry about.
USELESS FACT: The WADA case against Essendon (in Sydney as well) is exactly 10 years to the day that Australia qualified for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

speaking of bullets
Just wondering Ace if you railed against the club for trading in Michael Gardener when he was running with the underworld?
I know RL was quoted for " I dont want choirboys" and we had that bubble thing going but really no different

Im disaponted we couldnt entice Martin he was exactly the type of grunt we needed in the middle
He grabs games by the scruff of the neck and influences the tide of play
I see Kelly more as the cherry on top kind of player

no fyfe
no rocky
no dusty
lets see if we can get Kelly

Why do you say he's only got three good years left?

He seems to have had a good run with injuries, has he not?
