Trade rumours

Recommended Posts

In the end MFC FU! We are the easy beats in trade weak...

We should have got Lever for Pick 10 & 2nd Round 2018. That was our offer and it was fair. Should of held the Crows to the last minute with a take it or leave it. They wouldnt have got Gibbs and Leaver would have left for nothing.

Stringer and Watts went to there club of choice for below what there original club wanted. 

Adelaide held out on Brisbane for Pick 12 and the Lions buckled.

I hope MFC have long memories and regret they dont have a 1st Round Pick in 2018. Because the [email protected]#$ing should!

Poor negotiating!

There is also no need to rush in and give what they want either. That is what is staggering. 

About the only thing that's staggering is that people think that the Lever deal is staggering.

Thank god some of you aren't "negotiating" for us. The object of the exercise is to get the player you want, there are no bragging rights in not getting a deal done. To come out of that Trade Period with our picks intact but nothing to show for it but Harley Balic would have been a disaster, especially in light of what Lever brings.

Couldn't of said it any better myself Bing.

Imagine the uproar on here if we had failed to bring in Lever. Sure we would've maintained our picks, but they can only be considered as speculative, because we don't know who would be available at these picks or whether these players' would actually turn out to be any good (particularly in a shallow draft).

Lever is a known quantity and has several years of development left in him. I bet that those moaning about the price we paid would've been the first to sook it up that we let slip a quality player that also wanted to come to us.

Would have been pick 19 if we won the premiership. 

I'm ok with a lower placed team getting compensation for a good player leaving. It stands to reason that they aren't very good because they have less good players. Less about what the player is worth as an individual and what the loss of that individual means to the team overall.

Of course Buddy is worth more than pick 19 in isolation, but the Hawks as a team were clearly more than capable of dealing with his loss.

Buddy and Clarkson began fighting in March of the year he left.Buddy put an ultimatum to Hawthorn that said "it's him or me" and it was him so he walked for 10 mill.

Absolutely laughable some of the posters on this site, saying the trade week was a disappointment Is just mind boggling 

1: we got lever who is the best young defender in the game

2: we got balic for a bag of chips

3: we got rid of watts who doesn’t fit our list profile 

4: still have 3 picks in the 2nd round 

has been a very good trade period for us, and no we didn’t overpay for lever it was a very fair deal

if we use the Lachie Weller for pick 2 trade, one could say we paid unders for Lever in comparison.

What were the GC thinking?

You defeated your own argument. Adelaide held out to the last minute and the buying team buckled.

I think GC just had to bite the bullet on that one in my opinion. 

Dont get me wrong, they are possibly giving up one of the best 18 year olds in the country but do they really lose out? 

They've been bitten on the backside with some of their high picks for one reason or another and that club seems in serious trouble and when a 21 year old contracted player with a bright future requests a trade to their club i just think their FD did what it needed to do.

Time will tell I guess.

I've heard it was to do with certain things we aren't allowed to mention but it was to do with strikes, right up your alley, go bash a union...if you get my drift...hint hint

The amount of pathetic handwringing in this thread is laughable. 

Go follow North if you want your club to never make any trades.

They were thinking that desperate situations need desperate solutions. In their position, I don't mind it. Better an A-grade mid who's ready to go now than an 18 year old future star who takes a few years.

"Nick Bowen's verdict: Melbourne's post-season was a success from the time it landed the most exciting young talent in this year's trade period, Lever. Lever, 21, will slot seamlessly into the Demons backline and should help strengthen a team that already looked well placed to break a 12-year finals drought next season."

That very well may be the case, but Lachie Weller is definitely not an A-grade mid.

A divorcee he may be, but i see his next marriage to the injectors being a great match. The ego's of these 2 will see them remain in happily wedded ignorance for quite some time.

Spineless indeed until you have a reliable go-between: apparently there are many in Sydney.
