Why not make trade period last 6 weeks and send them all to Finland with no media contact for all but the last 2 days. Give them copies of Notting Hill, Shawshank Redemption, 4 Weddings, Pretty Woman and My Big Fat Greek Wedding to fill their 'valuable' time

include 'Steel Magnolias' and they would finish all the trades in the first half a day.

bit of word around clubs may consider Mumford as a playing assistant/ ruck depth next year. 

Given Spencer is off our list now I don’t think it’d be the worst idea ever

Isn't he retiring because his body is stuffed?

He’s done a medical and the giants retaining him depends on the results. He certainly won’t be their number 1 ruck if he isn’t in top shape but he might still be a super handy backup/ coach

I read earlier his navicular wasn't too flash and that coupled with his knees was forcing him into retirement

Heard on the wireless today that he’s going to announce his retirement shortly.

From a mate of his, he's not completely cooked. GWS have really talked up the injuries so that his salary next year is paid by insurance rather than the club. They are up to their eyeballs and need the salary cap relief.

Surely that got a run on Nuffies on AFL Pages on Facebook? 

It certainly did! Great page.

Trading places would be a better movie :) Edduie Murphy would show a thing or to. Knock a few idiot Journos out anyway.

Doesn't matter whether GWS or the insurance pays his salary it still falls under the same cap

Highlights the nature of the sausage factory.

Its only a few who go on, the elite players and those who bring value or versatility.

If it was your son being drafted, you would make sure the boy was developing his skills and future away from AFL. 

Like most professional sports these days, it has become a dog eat dog world. 

Something to be said about not giving up your day job, and why famous old coaches like Smith, Kennedy, Parkin etc insisted that players had day jobs or were studying.

 

Too true. Interesting seeing the actual numbers. I’m pretty sure a less than 10% success rate would be way below the industry wide average. 

Also pretty sure our strike rate is going to be a lot better in this rebuild.

I doubt it would be as easy as ‘GWS talking up the injuries’ for an insurance company to pay out a players contract.

He played like he is completely cooked this year. Still has had an outstanding career. Obviously the Giants want the salary cap relief but watching him play this year I thought he was cooked.

So what you are suggesting is Barrett knows of a spud who will be going to a team as a role player, but will end up being a on 'penalty rates' (above their pay grade).  Isn't this Motlop to Adelaide?

The trade period should be 3 days. So far .....nothing. For goodness sake, each club knows what it wants and needs, so get it done. If it was 3 days, all the crap would be done and the trades would be getting hammered out. AFL is getting more like the Bold and the Beautiful each day. 

I wonder why I have started getting into the NRL.

The trade period is enough to make you start following another code more?

Seems a slight overreaction in the grand scheme of things ...

I feel sorry for anyone who listens to that Trade Radio.

They've been going from 7am to 6pm every day since Monday and not one trade has happened.

What the fark would they have to talk about by today?
