If he was still around at pick 58, yep go for it, certainly wouldn't gamble a 1 or 2 rounder on him he s going to have some work to do acclimatizing to the big smoke :shh

looking forward to bringing this comment up when garlett starts making an impact, while we are keeping with the tried and tested spuds of edwards and co. mate king is finished and edwards is rubbish. we havent had a good crumber since god knows when.

wouldnt gamble a second rounder on him? disagree i say he is worth a second, if it came from trading out edwards who i dont rate at all and would be glad to see the back of.
this post shows you haven't watched him much.

Watched who be specific.

Edwards?

Unlike probably you I watched him closely for the last 7 years and mr potential is our answer to a small forward as what mcguane is to the lions

Gartlett's worth would be different to most teams. My view is he'd be worth a second round pick for us. The reality for RFC this year is that the following players debuted for the RFC this year:

Arnott, Vlastuin, McDonogh. Other than Flossy, the other two played 3 or 4 games between them. The players who were drafted in the last three/ four years who didn't get a game, or a regular spot in the 22: McBean, MacIntosh, Elton, Griffiths, Helbig, Batchelor, Dea, Astbury, Derickx and O'Hanlon. That is also not including rookie listed players. My point is that now, our list is very settled, and the result is that young players are not going to be gifted games, or play a lot of games. So what happens if we take Gartlett and he becomes a distraction and gets axed (like say Connors or MacDonald)? It doesn't majorly impact our youth stocks much at all. It would be different say 2 or 3 seasons ago when there would have been an expectation that someone selected at the later picks would still be likely to play an AFL game in the short term at some point. Thats not changed. I'm all for taking Gartlett, putting him on a tight behavioural leash.

In saying all that, I believe there is some sitautions that Gartlett has found himself in the last couple of years which were not reported in the media but widely known about in AFL circles which were extremely detrimental to his draft position.

This is the Garlett thread is it not? I presumed as a Richmond fan you would watch Edwards each week.  ;D

doubt it would've made any difference.

He will go before then.

Bombers no small forward will be next in line if hawks don't with their first pick.

So people are prepared to take him with all the baggage?..we have one player who takes up a lot of resources to keep in line,certainly don't need to tax those resources to the limit with another,no matter what his brilliance is or might be

Its interesting to note that over the past few months both Dimma and Richardson have talked about getting people of character to the club. Would that include people like Garlett?
