It's out with the OLD players, in with the draft
If you have been follwing the news in the off season then you know that draft pick options are pretty good for this season. The Gold Coast Football Club had no intentions of keeping 2 Designated Players this season. "It's just not how the operations here are run. Never get attached and never sit still. Re-invent and make good picks." said the Suns owner. There was an offer with the Alliance club, but when a first round pick was taken off the table other avenues had to be taken. "We wanted another first rounder. Plain and simple." Gold Coast picked up Joel Lindpere also and will keep him for a DP. "He is an ironhorse and never misses games. That is extremely important to this club."
