Dayne Beams to Bris, Stef Martin to Melb, Chris Dawes to Coll.

You have to throw in Brent Moloney to Melbourne as well. No wait ... he retired, didn't he?

Ok, throw in Zorko.

Presume the Lions were planning for Beams to extend his Pies contract by a year so it expired at end of 2016 which would coincide with him becoming a restricted free agency.

Interesting to see what Lions offer. Pick 4 is the obvious starter but if I were them I'd hold the line and offer only a player outside of their core players. How much will they want to pay for a player who could come to them for nix in 2 seasons as a restricted free agent or for below market value in 1 season as an out of contract player.

I'd have thought that GC would be into him, good quality experienced finals player...

They're ready to start topping up for a tilt over the next 2-4 yrs.

Ah...such a happy place for someone prone to depression to want to move to.

I hope he goes there and I hope they plummet. That would make me very, very, very happy.

Are we comng into an era where we will see more players requesting moves before their contracts expire for special circumstances?

Seems all you have to do these days is just have a little whinge and request a trade and away you go..

Not sure Beams is having a whinge. His dad has just beaten cancer and he wants to be closer to him. Players go home often, pretty reasonable circumstance to want to go back to Queensland for mine.

Ed just said his dad is suffering from cancer so probably shouldnt be laughing that a player is leaving there club. But brisnane or gc would have to give up a fair bit.

Geez Collingwood are turds.

They're perfectly willing to pillage our player who wants out for personal reasons when it suits, but when their own player wants out, they tell him basically to get stuffed and tell Brisbane he is worth more than a pick 4.

I hope the karma bus drives straight over the top of the lot of them.

In fact, what would be much better is to do what most other world sports do and give the players the freedom to move when they want to, within very broad parameters. The idea of 'owning' the rights to players and therefore holding them hostage is ludicrous. The idea of my employer being able to direct which competitor I can and can't work for is just laughable and I'm yet to hear a good reason why footballers should be any different.

So many Pies fans crying foul over Beams and demanding their pick four yet think it is OK to [censored] Clark and give MFC nothing or a late pick. Karma.............. They have a reputation as the most difficult club to deal with in trading and expect the world in return for peanuts.

Think Essendon still own the number 1 tag. At least Pies attempt to get deals done. No team happier about free agency than Essendon. None of this pesky negotiating with other clubs and their unrealistic player evaluations.

Absolute myth that Collingwood didn't know.

Has been rumoured all year.

He becomes a restricted free agent at the end of 2015, from what I understand, and will walk if they don't trade him.

I have a six pack riding on him being at Brisbane by 2016 season.

I'd imagine once Beams dad was diagnosed, this was on the cards. Rumours started floating around July. Apparently his dad would love the Beams boys to play in the same side.

No its not. You want to play in our comp that's the deal. Just like the drugs code you sign up to.

If you don't want to play, fine. Go somewhere else.

God help us if we end up like the EPL.

Could we potentially get involved in this one though? If the Pies want two Top 10 picks could we get one of their mids for one of our picks? Possibly someone like Jack Redden?

Probably won't happen if our interest in Danger comes to fruition, but I hope the club is keep an eye on things.

I didn't know that was the case, so I apologise for my insensitivity.
