And this is where Disco could be trying to be too clever by half. Trying to screw the Dogs over so we can use Pick 11 elsewhere on a target we aren’t likely to get could see us a) piss the Dogs off and we miss out on Stringer b) we miss out on Gaff/whoever else we are trying to use Pick 11 on because they were an unrealistic target c) further enhances our reputation as difficult to deal with at the trade table and d) makes Disco look like a tit by missing out on a bloke who wanted to join us.
If we want both, just use this year’s and next year’s 1st rounders, future pick trading was brought in for this purpose and we should take advantage of it. As a collective Stringer and Gaff (or another player of equivalent quality) for 2 first round picks is fair value IMO and if he can work it that is excellent business. Get a decent Free Agent in as well and I’d be happy as, but please can we stop being ■■■■■ for a change and just do some good, solid deals without trying to bend others teams over?
