    2018 Delisted Free Agents

    I actually don’t think it’s that weird. If you read between the lines there’s clearly a number of reasons why he was delisted by the Suns. 1. It seems clear he has no defensive aspect to his game - or an unwillingness to follow the game plan at any rate (you would think that as a senior player this might not go down well with the FD - think Lynden Dunn) 2. Despite getting a lot of the ball he butchers it. 3. We know the Suns were having a salary squeeze and the article alludes to the fact he was on good coin. He would have been happy to be delisted I suspect to pick up a three year contract now rather than the uncertainty of what sort of contract he could get after running around in the NEAFL for twelve months. 4. It’s highly likely their crosstown rivals knew this - so why trade for him if you don’t have to. The Suns win because they free up salary cap space at the same time as moving on a senior player who chooses to run his own race rather than follow team rules.

    Is that what you have heard or what you want?

  5. Is he Jamie’s boy?

    Rumour File

    Gold Coast either have to back themselves in to keep whoever they draft or are resigned to losing them. Cripps is being more than a little disengenuous to suggest that they should draft a Vic because there’s a bigger market to go home to. Players now inevitably get to go to a club of their choosing. He sounds like a playground bully, it also smacks a little of desperation over the fact that they might miss out on one of the SA kids.

    It doesn't ring true though. Why put out a public statement about 'due diligence' and imply that there's a problem with the merchandise - when it's actually the price you want to pay. i.e. you're happy to take the merchandise, but this is about being a small man in a big person's world and needing to 'bend 'em over'?

    But he says it with such conviction Nash, and we're only really looking to confirm our own bias in this thing after all. I choose to believe in aliens living amongst us - Jesse Hogan is an alien - there I said it!

    Is it though? When I first saw it I thought it was pretty far-fetched, but it could have some substance, particularly if the real issue isn't homesickness. We have all conveniently fallen for that reasoning, but do we know it's true? With our list, it's unlikely Jesse could maximise his earnings like he could at either Freo or GCS. The Suns may offer him 6 mil over 5 years if May leaves and they load the contract appropriately (apparently the Freo offer is 4.5 mil over 5 years). God knows with the loss of Ablett and now Lynch they need some sort of drawcard to get the few fans they have to turn up to home games, it ain't going to be Lachie Weller. All this may or may not tempt Hogan (no pun intended), but I don't think it's beyond the realms of possibility. I could completely understand if Jesse and his manager may not want to ever speak to Freo again after what's gone on (again based on the assumption they were blind-sided by their churlish tactics the way everyone else was)

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    With Dayne Beams now wanting to go back to the Pies I smell a complicated four way trade involving him Hogan, Neale, Tom Langdon and picks involved.
  11. Yep, and conveniently ignore that if they get a top 3 pick for him next year it will be from the AFL and not the club he goes to and also because they've stunk it up for another year. They are conflating issues. GCS do not want May at the club if he won't commit long term which he won't ergo they have to trade him for less than what they would get from the AFL next year.

    I don't think they'll get Lobb, I think he'll go to the Eagles.

    I think the draft picks are arbitrary to a certain point in that pick 4 in one draft isn't equal to pick 4 in another. I think all that matters to the club will be for it to get what it needs to get the outcomes it wants ( May, KK and something else)

    Probably because it means we have a better hand to offer GWS for Shiel!

    Yeah Nah. This from the club that was emphatically not going to trade GAJ and hold him to his contract. It's a millstone around their neck carrying a player they know won't be there the following season. It's a distraction they need to do without. Their tough talk is just that, they will get a good pick for May and they'll do it this year. We're in the box seat compared to the likes of Collingwood and Hawthorn who don't look likely to be able to gazump us - providing May wants to play for the Dees.
