They won't take just anything.

Bear in mind Jack is on about $1m over the next two years. That will also be freed up if he goes.

Hope u r right but I think we will end up paying some of his wage too which would make the trade even worse if it happens.

Im not positive, but think the deal Port offering Jack usurps ours. I.e we're free after any trade. 

Our contract doesn't continue if a better one's put into effect. Win win

Would anyone do this deal for Watts if he goes to Port?

Port give: Pick 30 and 33

Dees give: Watts and 45

 

That makes Watts the equivalent of pick 22. 

Leaves us with: 28, 30, 33, 35 and 65

Use 65 for Balic. Possibly package two of the second rounders to get further up the draft to give us the mandatory three selections.

What he specifically said in response to the question about Balic was we both have "other priorities at the moment".  Interpret that how you like but it clearly indicates we are doing something else other than Balic. We all know Watts is in play so he may well only be talking about that but why would that hold up Balic. Whatever the Balic deal it won't be effected by the Watts deal.  So is it so extraordinary to interpret that statement  as there are other things in play as well. Or not. But maybe. But maybe not. Or perhaps. Or perhaps not. Whatever.........  

So many words to say so little. 

He also said we had no other deals we in the pipeline and we're happy to take our picks to the draft. 

Naturally, believe what you want.

Lets argue about it after 2pm next Thursday.  I think I'm hoping more than believing anything that comes out of anyone's mouth in this industry.

Jump at it

Watts is going, would love to see 2 picks in the 30's for him, then convert them into a higher pick. Obviously this is based on the recruiters saying they are happy to take our existing picks to the draft. Says they believe something is there.

It's probably being a tad optimistic though, even with handing back 45

It's obviously boring from a 'stories per hour' standpoint, but from our point of view: HOLY [censored] LEVER IS JOINING US. It only really sank in today. :)

It's all about market saturation and media coverage. AFL would probably prefer it went for 6 weeks.

Apparently North  Korea are thinking of using trade radio over 6 weeks as a form of torture

Exactly and it always ends up being anti-climatical. Sure the big trades might happen but the media just build the whole period up too much

Trade week and now 'trade fortnight' always seems like prolonged [censored]-teasing to me. Can we have a left field trade already, please? Urgh. So boring. :D

And everyone agrees it's too long. Football admins, the media and clearly the footballing public.

Needs compressing to a week because seriously, as we all know, the bulk of conversations have been had in the weeks/months leading up to the period... I guess it would help if the whole system was a little more mature and transparent.

Does he play outside or inside mid? If outside I would say worth a look

Quite funny.

Bloke has played a couple of games a year for 5 years and article says Swans will need to be adequately compensated.

Trade period is meant to be exciting?
