Keitel - AFL games Nil
In fact not even drafted.
Not the most dominant player in the WAFL.

Wellingham - 171 AFL games

So they have now recruited Mcginnity and Wellingham for compensation for losing Keitel? Why should Claremont and Perth lose out for West Perths gain? And this Keitel must be one hell of a player!

I thought one of the rules of the alignment was the AFL aligned clubs were not allowed to recruit any ex AFL players from other WAFL clubs because obviously purely because of the alignment they have formed a natural relationship with that player and that in itself has to be an unfair advantage.

Just disgraceful.

If he was any good he would be on an AFL list.

Has any one stopped to think that maybe he wants to stay at East Perth because he likes the club.Maybe he doesn't want to return Perth, or go to another WAFL club!

Good point Anchor.

Has anybody stopped to think what might be best for the competition?

Obviously not you.

I actually think Anchor makes a valid point....he'll be surrounded by his mates from WCE and familiar with coaches and support staff etc. I hear what you're saying from a Perth perspective but you can't blame him really. Hopefully Perth gets compensation but you wouldn't want a player forced to come to the club if he doesn't want to be there....just my opinion and could be wrong.

At a time when players health and well being is to the forefront.I would have thought that be the obvious question, or answer.What about the player!!!
Some one said that if he was any good, he would be playing AFL. MMM so why all the kerfuffle about players leaving AFL and coming home.If they aren't any good, why make all the noise about where they go!!!!

Im surprised,doesnt Wellingham think hes still got 2 or 3 years of top line AFL footy in him,thats what his manager said.

Maybe im odd but if that was me id be real dirty on West Coast for delisting me afterall i still think im capable at AFL level but here he is about to go to work for the club thats run by the club thats just sacked him?
I get why he didnt sign with us, we are just a basket case and i know that loyalty is a thing of the past.

It's good that he his going to a Club that needs him and that can have WCE pay for him.

Really really good for the competition.

What the player wants? Yes I think that is a crucial consideration at the national draft, very important in footy.
