I wouldn't, Yarran has his own flaws. Rather trade Vickery for another player if anything.

Not if your life depended on it

We have proved that out club cannot handle aboriginal players. See RR, JON, Tambling

We have no idea how to deal with them and our strike rate is terrible in the last 30 yrs

Besides another clubs reject

Come on
Yes. I agree that our recruiting/development of indigenous players has been terrible.

But I would take anything for Sideshow bob

Maybe someone like Yarran can destroy the bluescheats when we play them next too.

If the offer came if take it in a heartbeat.

The club that keeps giving.

No way, everyone would have to find a new whipping boy.

Plus if we got Yarren and when we started bagging (after about three games) him there would be racism implications
we have plenty of whipping boys already....take your pick ;D

why would we need a new whipping boy? We'd have Yarran.

people do realise vickery gets games because there are so few tall fwd options.
for sure trade him but target someone like kristian jaksch.
or take the best pick we can get and target a promising tall fwd with it in the nd in the mean time take a short term fill in.

Good option although I would ask for a pick upgrade too with Jaksch.

Here bloody Here

Heres a thought let's play Mcbean, Elton, Miles and Brett O and see if we can upgrade on these monkeyball recruits so we can delist them all

Gig I'm starting to realise it's not the players we recruit it's the way we develop them may be the problem. Look what we did to Jack, Maric and Dusty. One we told him to drop weight the other we ran into the ground and dusty to play off a HBF

jaksch is just 19yo. the scenario would be similar to melb getting tyson. jaksch would be neither a short term fill in and we would still have to develop him.if you think our current list of talls is good enough or even enough id say your kidding yourself.

i was only useing jaksch as an example of the type of player we should trade vickery for
 jaksch is struggling to get a game in front of boyd, cameron, and patton and they would have no need for vickery unless they thought they could turn him into a ruckman so perhaps gws is not the right place to try and trade vickery to.
maybe vickery to essendon or the dogs  and we onload that pick to gws for jaksch.

i still very much like the look of jeremy mcgovern but that isnt possible anymore with the eagles promoting him to their senior list. shane kersten at geelong i was hopeful we would draft hes not getting a game at geelong.
or id be just as happy to trade him out for a decent pick there are some real good talls in the nd and instead of useing one or two good picks on talls we could use 3.

Yarran has been very consistent this year.  Not sure if you guys have been watching the same games as me.  Carlton are much more vulnerable when he is out of their side.
