    Its 3 years with a trigger. Get out for Hawks is that if the ankle does not come good and struggles he can retire a la Dane Swan and get a settlement of most of the following year of his contract which is not include in the salary cap.

    Could hardly have done better maximising Hogan's exit than by using it to recruit May. Kolo is a gamble but if he is over concussion issues then he will bne a good pickup. Overall we traded in a much needed class key defender, backup ruckman and a classy half back/wingman. All areas of need. We have a more balanced list than 2018.

    My money is on Neale being a Lion, Hogan a Docker and May/Kolo a Demon by 8:30pm Wednesday night.

    Have to package to a club in need of points for matching bids on academy/fatherson picks. 23 = 815 points 30 = 629 points 36 = 502 points Total 1976 points which is enough points to match a bid at 5 (without factoring in discounts)

    8 is only very fair for May if Suns concur.

    Saints shut that down pretty quick.

    Scully a risk because the elite part of his game is his hard 2 way running. Coming of a serious ankle injury there has to be doubt that he can sustain the running load required to return to his elite 2 way running best without causing further complications. Additionally he is entering his 28 yo season which is more of note for Scully because we know he was preparing at an elite level as a teenager so he has done more kms than most other players his age. Wingard is a risk because Clarkson is betting on being able to persuade Wingard step up from semi pro to elite professional preparation. Port's football department and players have lost patience with trying to make him change his ways. Even if both do get back to their best Hawks are still lacking genuine centre square contested ball mids and key forwards and defenders, and they have an ageing list. Will the Hawks be a slightly better version of the post Premiership Geelong?
  8. Yes he did. Preuss filling important Spencil Memorial Cult Ruck From Townxville slot.

    2 average seasons. Big Contract. Low Production. Salary Cap Dump. Swans are opening alot of salary cap space. May be for 2019 free agency/trade. They don't have any trade currency this year unless they release one of their better players.

    Mahoney has made it pretty clear that Jesse and his management know and are ok with the picks that we need to release him to Freo this year. Bell may be no dill but rarely has an AFL club entrusted its trade negotiations to a duo as inexperienced in negotiating trades than Freo with Bell and Rosich. Bell obviously wants to make a big statement in his first week in the job - trying on win-lose trades and thinking he could sweet talk Neale into extending at Freo - but we don't have to come to the party and going by what Mahoney has said we know the deal we need to release Jesse this year.

    It was a fairly obvious deduction, a known known if you like. GC know the pick they'll get for May in free agency next year and want close to that if they release him this year. Only way we can do that is with a Hogan trade producing Pick 5.

    Wingard is an elite talent but his production over the last 2 years has been below par for his talent and contract. Turned up out of shape for last preseason. Hopefully its like the OMeaera deal and Clarko gets what he wants without the likes of Fagan or Evans being there to over rule the trade offer. Pick 15 and Burton'd be nice. Hawks fans love Burton and are currently having conniptions at the very thought of him being traded. Of course if Wingard decides to reenter the world of professional football they may forget Burton.
