    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Late to the party here but apparently we would've done the deal for 5 and 23. What in the hell?! What happened to our price of two first rounders?? Contracted, a generational key forward tracking better than superstar key forwards of the past, plus 5 years of development under his belt. And we were happy with 5 and 23...? In an era where Bryce Gibbs and Adam Treloar are worth two first rounders. Cannot believe how quickly we folded on his currency and bloody relieved the situation fell apart and he's staying put. No way should you trade a player like Hogan unless you get value in return. I'm all for "fair trades" but that's just getting bent over for the highest tradeable commodity on our list.

    But Gold Coast could well end up with band 1 compo if he leaves next year which, let's face it, is going to be another pick inside the top 5. The AFL will ensure they're looked after, the club is a basketcase when it comes to player retention. I doubt they (GC) would be too upset with that outcome next year. Slightly different story for free agents leaving high-placing clubs, because the FA compo is so much less and a trade one year early can yield better currency.

    Even before this year, we'd won a final more recently than the Bombers. Not too upset about Shiel. Turnover merchant and has a selfish attitude bred into him at that "team of champions" the Giants.

    It's Essendon, cheating is in their DNA. They'll find a way to siphon money to him outside their cap. Just like their mysterious "legal settlements" to all the WADA convicted players who remained at the club. Payments which were never disclosed nor factored into the salary cap. Amazing that. [censored] cheats.

    Forgot about that! Enjoy fitting that private jet into your salary cap for no return, Blooooooos! 🤣

    Gross. Lost all respect for him. [censored] hate those flogs. Only thing worse would've been Hawthorn I guess.

    Not in a million years would I trade pick 5 for Steven May. Jesus! What a disastrous outcome that would be. I'd rather take a punt in the draft with talent that high, at least you'll get a decade longer out of them!

    Wouldn't an intelligent list manager have started a bidding war for the concession pick, considering many clubs would've had their sights set on hidden gems? Create paranoia and play clubs against clubs, wait until someone blinks and offers overs. Oh, nope. We'll just settle for some shitty pick in the 50s on day 1 from the first club that asks. Nevermind all that. 😂

    What an insanely stupid trade from Carlton. Morons. Completely defeating the entire purpose of what that pick is meant to serve.

    The reason Freo are playing hardball is because they know they can't easily get Lobb and Hogan without giving up everything in the first round. GWS will want one of their first few picks as well, we will obviously want two. There seems to be a concerted effort in the media to create the impression Hogan is only worth one first rounder. Wonder why!

    Not debating that. My point was entirely around how we botched that trade. Don't give a [censored] about Howe leaving, stuff him, but we should be extracting better currency than the likes of Ben Kennedy for Howe.

    They beat us, GWS and Richmond this year, so it was 3. And they won the same amount of finals as us.

    Congrats Buckley. Qualified for the top 4 with one win against a top 8 side and didn't deserve a premiership IMO. Very happy to see Howe miss out. Very, very happy.

    WOW!!!! And Darling nearly choked the whole thing!

    And now delisted. 😑 Probably one of the footy department's few missteps over the last few years. Still, the same draft they brilliantly traded up to secure Oliver before Parish, so these things work out in the end.
