  1. Lord Travis, you will find there is a group of posters here that believe that we miss manage injuries and the communication of them.

    Training - Monday 3rd December, 2018

    Would be great if he could get back to his 40-goals-a-year self.

    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.
  4. 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.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    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.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    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.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    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.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    In terms of getting May, it would be better for us if they kept open the 11 offer, and upped the other part (future 1st round?).

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Perhaps. It could also smack of Freo being not as into Hogan as everyone thinks they are ... could be the salary, could be concerns about the foot, could be ... well, anything. Perhaps from their side, they're just not that desperate.

    Freo don't even have Pick 5 for the moment, and given how they're approaching negotiations with us, there's a decent chance that the Neale trade won't go through. In any case, there's no way we'd ever be getting 5 + 11, best we could manage given what's available would be 11 + next year's first - though is there some technical issue which means that Freo can't trade their next year's first round pick?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Also a mistake that was a major factor in them winning a grand final.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Freo on a hiding to nothing here. They need a low first or decent second round pick to get Lobb, but hard to see where it's going to come from, as neither we (Hogan) nor Brisbane (Neale) have one. You'd think that neither our second rounder (36) or Brisbane's (32) wouldn't be enough for GWS. Complicated.

    May won't be available as FA. Either he'll come to us or the Pies, or he'll re-sign a long-term deal at GC. The May situation has come up for the same reason the Hogan one has: clubs don't want players hanging round for a year till their contract runs out or they become FA. If they won't commit long-term, they're let go.

    Which just goes to show the importance of team-wide defence.
