    The draw is a [censored]. Given our opponents, if we finish in the 8 we'll already have improved on this year. Let's not forget that in most of the home and away season this year, we'd hardly beaten anyone in the 8.
  2. Yes, but this ignores the picks that came back the other way. In reality, we got Lever for pick 10 plus the equivalent of pick 51. (10 + 16 + 73 out vs 37 + 46 in).

    The next contract we may have to be concerned about is Mahoney's. The man is doing good, no doubt it's being noticed.

    who currently has a serious foot injury, who didn't want to play for us anymore, and who's OOC next year.

    This is just pie in the sky. We could never keep Hogan. He was either going now for what we got or, following a year of speculation, next year for worse when he'd be OOC (and not forgetting that the year after that (2020) he'd be a free agent).

    Which is actually worse than what we did get: pick 16 (not 14) this year goes to them, but we got 2nd and third round picks (37 last year and 46 this year) back. The difference between 16 out and those two picks back is not that great, and us throwing pick 73 into the deal changed almost nothing. In reality, we got Lever for pick 10 plus the equivalent of pick 51. (10 + 16 + 73 out vs 37 + 46 in). With future picks involved, Mahoney's shrewdness here was in betting that we'd go up and Adelaide would go down. Smart boy.
  7. Yes, and under the points system, what we got for Hogan is more valuable (by 5 places) than what we paid for Lever, so your point is? You're also conveniently omitting that we got a 2nd and a 3rd rounder back with Lever, also that the two first rounders that we paid for him were comparatively low: 10 and 16.

    Just no. This is numbers-in-a-vacuum thinking. a) not an open market. As soon as a player nominates a club, that club has the upper hand because it shuts the door on competitive options - though under the circumstances, the only option that could have worked would have been WCE, and they had nothing to offer. Which Fremantle knew full well. b) Hogan has a serious foot injury c) Hogan has only one year left on a contract that he has refused to extend. It was take what we could this year, or have even less bargaining power next year trying to keep an out-of-contract player. Though all of this ignores the importance of getting May (and KK) into the club.

    Got the job done with a minimum of fuss. Not only who we've brought in, but getting back into the second round twice is a real plus.

    Just made the mistake of watching some Hogan highlights. Weep.

    Think that either Port or Adelaide will be tied up here, both have lower first round picks that they want to move higher.

    10 and 14 to Adelaide for Lever plus a second round pick? A steal, and great work by Mahoney, Viney and co.

    I just cannot see this happening without a lot of back-pedalling from all concerned: Freo by upping their Trade offer, us by conceding on what we want (5 + one or two second rounders?), and Hogan by reducing his 8/8 demand. Of course, if any one of those parties made serious concessions it could go through, but that looks increasingly unlikely. Welcome to Melbourne Football Club Jesse Hogan?

    I think it’s a reference to some kind of biscuit.
