  1. Trade rumours

    It appears to be be a salary cap issue so not strictly a freebie. We may not have been able to fit him in.
  2. Trade rumours

    That is clearly what he said....... but is it a ruse?
  3. How hard is it going to be to penetrate our defence! Roos would love it.

    Just read the article with Connors berating Melbourne and Footscray. Without getting into the ins and outs of specific deals isn't this the logical outcome of the situation where players, in contract, nominate another club they want to be traded to? I think it may have led to the clubs taking the position they expect to be able to control some trades as well. Seems that the clubs are not content to live in the one way street anymore.

    How would he get the opportunity? I am not intending to fan any flames here but I assume he is unlikely to be in the awards.
  10. Trade rumours

    Finally a rumour! Even if its fake its made my day.
  11. Trade rumours

    If as has been reported we are offering 10 + next years second for Lever and we are obviously hoping to get another second round for Watts leaving us with 2 2nd rounders this year, what do we have up our sleeves that needs that outcome?
  12. Trade rumours

    Explains the watts situation and why we cant trade next years first.
  13. No they may be right, pick 27 only then.....

    I found it hard to understand the public statements thus far but now its clear, it was the last gasp. Goodwin has made his expectations clear, left the door open. Watts has thought about it and wants to stay which means he knows what is expected. I for one would like to see him realise his potential after all this time (part of which the club can bear some responsibility for) and it wouldn't surprise me if he has spoken to Roos (or some other confidante) who told him changing clubs is not the answer either way he has to change his desire to be the best. Frankly I think he is worth more to the club than a 30 pick but only if he is meeting our expectations.
