    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Just the way Jason Taylor likes it.

    That bloke in your avatar finding his form again in 2019 would certainly help with the outside speed solution!

    I see what you're saying re: someone going down with an injury up forward, but I still believe we are blessed with lots of talent down there that we could cover it. Trac plays tall, as do Fritsch and Hannan, while Melksham can win then ball in the air or at ground level. Not to mention we have the capacity of resting Oliver deep forward and, as you say, Preuss can provide a contest down there and swap with Gawny as well. I reckon we would adapt and overcome if that happened, but let's hope we don't really need to consider it.

    Amen to that, Doc. Well said. It's the same with the picks we will take to the draft. We've been sensational in the mid to late picks over the last few years, and there's no reason why this won't continue in 2018.

    The Age article has us, hypothetically, getting May, KK and Pick 23 for Hogan. It's not a sexy deal by any means, but we address two needs - a key back and outside run - while still potentially maintaining a very potent forward line, while also holding on to our first round picks for the next few years that we can use for further moves over the coming seasons. It's a good outcome, although I can understand why people may see this as unders to begin with.
  6. If that actually comes true, and every player and pick are correct, then you deserve to have God like status on the board, MAH. Andy should even give you mod powurz.
  7. So, ladies and gentlemen of Demonland, what do we end up with from here? Does Hogan stay, or does he go? And if he goes, what do we get for him? Do we nab KK for a late pick? Do we swap a high pick for May? Do we have another deal for another player cooking in the background? I'm interested to hear what everyone thinks we walk away with at 8:30pm tomorrow night, and if anyone can actually nail their prediction. So, have at it. No judgement. Whatever you think the outcome is, post away and discuss!

    If we always get shafted in deals then we would be a bottom 4 side, not a top 4 side.

    Your knowledge astounds me, ET!

    The Steven May Thread

    Couldn't agree more. He clarified it later by saying that he was highly likely to end up at Melbourne.

    GC won't do that, not until the moment it's clear we won't be trading Hogan. They would look silly if they traded him for Pick 7 and a few hours later we had Pick 5. Plus May will want to wait as it's still clear we are his first preference. But, I see what you mean. If he is legit happy to play anywhere if he has to, then it puts a little extra pressure on us to get the deal done. I don't see it as a major issue though.

    I began listening to his report a little late so I only caught the part about May and how Pick 5 will go through a few hands in the next day or so. Nothing about other picks involved in the Hogan deal, although he may have discussed it at the beginning, which I missed.

    Mitch Cleary just confirmed on Trade Radio that it's pretty much going to be Steven May to us if/when the Lachie Neale and Jesse Hogan deals go through. He said the Pies still have a little interest, but we are well and truly in the box seat.

    Correct. What it all adds up to is a drafting team that knows what it's doing.

    The last two seasons we have drafted Hannan and Fritsch, two guys who have come in and been best 22 players. Taylor knows what he's doing. You can say we've been dudded, I'll go with the fact that we've addressed our needs and that our scouting and recruitment team are one of the best in the business.
