    Changes vs Hawthorn R4

    With Puopolo, Rioli, Breust and Impey, we need pace in the back half next week. Hopefully Hunt has a good game today for Casey.

    Trade rumours

    Would anyone do this deal for Watts if he goes to Port? Port give: Pick 30 and 33 Dees give: Watts and 45 That makes Watts the equivalent of pick 22. Leaves us with: 28, 30, 33, 35 and 65 Use 65 for Balic. Possibly package two of the second rounders to get further up the draft to give us the mandatory three selections.
  3. Nothing more than pick 65 for Balic. Take it or leave it Freo. If not, then we'll pick him up in the draft. No other team would use a selection for him.

    I'd go to Geelong and say we'll give you Watts and 35 for Cam Guthrie. Promise him midfield time. Hasn't been given much with the inclusion of Dangerfield. He's got some speed and good around stoppages. Before Danger he looked like becoming a real top-of-the-line mid. Lack of minutes have cost him IMO. Demon supporter as a kid, out of contract at end of 2018.

    Trade rumours

    So Hogan is upset Watts is traded one hour down the highway to Geelong, so intends to ask for a trade to the other side of the county. They are just reporting a story that people will want to know about. It was written in the Perth Now, simply to get clicks and sell papers.

    I'm nervous about 2018. Going into next year, reminds me of going into the 2011 year. We had shown strong improvement up until that stage under Bailey and then had a horror year. This trade decision isn't helping my nerves about 2018. We all know we got incredibly close to getting into finals in 2017, and I just hope we don't go backwards next year. Rumours that trading Jack given his popularity within the group could possibly lead to some players getting offside. Bringing in a 21 year old on 750k which is above the salary of servants on the list, could lead to some players demanding more when it comes to negotiating their new contract. It's all getting me nervous. My trust in the club, particularly Taylor and Jackson, has never been stronger despite our performances in the last decade. I just hope we can perform on a consistent manner once again, with no quarter-long lapses, and I can rid myself of the continual pessimism I have whenever I sit down to watch our matches next year.
  8. Give pick 64 for Balic and pick 77.

    Sam Collins from fremantle has been delisted. I'd be keen on him.

    With Watts meeting Geelong today (according to Mitch Cleary), it is good for us that Adelaide have offered a big offer to Motlop. Means Geelong may get an even better compensation pick for losing him. They currently have picks 20 and 33.

    I felt this is what cost Aaron Davey his pace and some of his athleticism.

    Trade rumours

    Kane Cornes has just gone with the opinion that Jarman Impey is worth a pick between 20-30. Cmon Kane. You'd be lucky to get a pick between 30-40.

    Is Jack worth more than pick 39? I think he is, therefore I want this....

We're eight or nine years into a career and there's been a similar lot of expectation and a lot of pressure has been placed on both the Melbourne footy club and Jack over a long period of time. "That cycle has continued. It hasn't changed and I guess you've got to continue to assess where you are as a footy club and, I guess, where Jack's at as well." Watts is set to declare his intentions at a TAB lunch on Tuesday. Looks like he'll nominate a club tomorrow then.....
