  1. That's the most disappointing nickname attempt since someone here tried to start calling Trac 'Petraccattack'.

    Overall, Hogan to Freo was the equivalent of pick 2.

    Overall it's Neale for the equivalent of about pick 3 by itself. It's pick 6 and 55, plus an upgrade of 30 to 19. The pick shuffles at the end aren't actually worth much overall.
  4. I think it's probably the sort of thing that comes with experience. In his first year he's trying to win every deal but soon he'll realise that the true value comes from having the assets available when the real bargains are there to be taken. He'll probably start realising now when all of these bargains are going to go around and he's too busy haggling over an unavailable 5 vs the 6 they had originally!
  5. The only difference it will make is that Freo could have got the value in shifting 5 to 6 instead of Brisbane. I suppose that's the problem with waiting. Effectively it means that Freo received two picks for pick 5 instead of 6, so they lost value there. Also, would Gold Coast view 6 as being 5 in a May deal? For us that's all that matters. Brisbane is extracting the value at the expense of Gold Coast.
  6. Via trade radio: Eade on May: He's a really good player. He can play tall but where he can be best used is on the medium types like Robbie Gray that can be hard to match up on
  7. There's no skill, art or guile in this sentence. It's like a tail ender facing 1000 throw downs a day in the nets before closing his eyes and slogging as soon as he gets to the middle. 200 posts a day isn't trolling. It's a cry for help.
  8. It's very sad watching you flap around like a dying fish. You've entirely missed the point, and art, of trolling if you're the one that ends up making all of the effort. You're just trying pathetically hard. This is just painful to watch. Please stop, it's making me sad.

    What, an injured player who is a massive risk with a giant contract that his previous team is happy to shift? Apples and oranges. KK is young, talented and is entering the productive part of his AFL career.

    Kolodjashnij is a good player who is young, played good footy and already played 78 games. While a deal wouldn't be difficult to do, he's more than steak knives. Effectively the proposed deal would be, for us, Hogan for May, 23 and whatever pick KK is worth (probably a late second rounder, IMO).

    I loved watching Dravid bat. Such an intelligent cricketer.
  12. I see the idea but there is a shift away from using your best contest winning defender on the big forward. That's what Rance has done except for specific matchups like Buddy. Rance will play a position and win the one on ones against lesser players in dangerous positions while Astbury will follow the big forward around. I really like May as a player. I remember being at the game where they beat Hawthorn at the MCG a few years back and he was dominant playing as an intercepting deep defender. But, as you say, we'll wait and see what transpires.
  13. I think they have some academy players coming next year, so my guess is that they'll try to roll them over to next year through trades.
  14. I disagree with this. I think may is going to be used in the second tall while Oscar continues to get the number 1. The idea will be for May to be an intercept marker, because he had that skill, along with Lever while Oscar does the donkey work of keeping the best forward on the ground. May is a contest winner and a potentially excellent rebounder and would be wasted playing as a key stopper.

    He appeared to have a lot of talent from what I saw of him. I hope a change of scenery works out well for him. Gold Coast would be a tough place to stay out your career.
