We have: 29, 31, 36, 47 and 66. 

They have: 41, 42, 57, 60 and 79.

I doubt we will use 66 even if Garland retires. We are better off having a look at delisted free agents, the preseason draft or an extra rookie and then having flexibility to promote one of them.

66 I'd suggest is on the table but the Dockers will want more. So we can do 47 down to 57 or 36 down to 42 or similar but ideally it comes with a 3rd party who might be keen on taking on later picks to move one our picks up the order.

My hope is that we turn 29 and 31 into a first rounder. Turn 66 into Balic. And take a first rounder, pick 36 and pick 47 to the draft.

31 a late pick yeah? Or is 31 a top end pick? We've been bent over in every deal this year and a few last year..may the trend continue

According to you. if hogan left,  you're saying 2 first rd picks are too much for us to ask? Because that's what your saying. 

You either have no idea or are just making [censored] up to suit your butt hurt agenda

2nd rd pick is not a late pick.

Im sick of dumb opinions

how am I butt hurt? The MFC created a buyers market for Watts, ousted him publicly and got a crappy pick 31 for him, in a weak draft. These are facts, not agenda driven opinion. Adelaide fans are stoked that we have given them 2 first rounders for Lever, a player they consider to be selfish and who plays for himself. It's a late second round pick ...31 that is...don't forget compo picks slide in and push this pick higher...

 

So, we are getting the deal done for Balic for pick 66 yeah? You reckon that is happening? What is the delay ? Why not do it yesterday? What did it have to do with waiting on what we got for Watts? Remember what we gave for Melksham?...cmon mate, be a realist, we may have landed what we wanted in the last few trades and drafts, but we have assisted other clubs with the picks we have given up.

Hearing pick 66 should be what brings Balic to Melbourne.

JW was completely different to the Lever trade.

Lever is a 21 yo AA player. Equivalent to hogan in value.

Your opinion is clearly based on emotions or you have no idea

Pick 66 is a great deal for Balic.  Thought Freo might be real pains about it but we've done well here.

You've made yourself look like a fool.  I've enjoyed it, too.

Great get for pick 66. As I said in this thread yesterday, if he can stay healthy and have consistency in his life, he could become an asset for us. Welcome to the club Harley!

I think Freo just wanted to get it out the way, they have at least 3 other deals they need to close in 24 hours

Will be a better player than Jack Watts.

Mahoney is kicking goals this trade period.

.... please stop with the crap! he's a fringe player at the team that was in the bottom 4. 

Balic is untried, and has been bought into the team for Depth. 

No need to compare him with Watts, stupid comment to make!

Good pick up and a good punt for a pick we where unlikely to use.

Kid needs to get stuck into it now and work his butt off to get a slot in our 22.

I actually suspect an in-principle deal was made in good faith between the clubs at the beginning of the trade period for Fremantle to receive our highest inactive pick at its conclusion - with the Watts hold-up related to what we could/would do with the returned pick.

I base this suspicion on very little evidence.
