Motlop has nominated Port.

I think Watts to Geelong will happen now.

 

 

With which pick and how much cash?

Dees will want low second round pick this year.

Cats have pick 21, 34 and will get 35 for motlop. They will need to offer 34 or 35 to GC for Ablett and won’t give up pick 21 for watts. 

Cant see Melbourne accepting 35

Didn't Geelong rule themselves out yesterday? Leaving Jack the weekend to decide if he wants to move to backwards land?

So motlop going to power.  Sen 1116 still saying Watts will land at Port. What a period for port

Port had salary cap issues before the trade and rockliff and motlop haven’t helped the situation. Can’t see watts fitting in especially if Melbourne aren’t wanting to pay for his wages. In addition their first pick in the draft is pick 30. Can’t see them giving this up for watts

I find it more like the "Argument" sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus.

No it isn't.

This post is meaningless.  It doesn't dispute my point, nor does it add to it.

I know all of the above and said as much in my post, and I was making the point that it's posts like his that have been taken as fact 5 pages later.

This Watts debate is seriously a joke now.

But you asked Ron ' you know this how'? when he did NOT say he knew it.  

I don't disagree with your asertion that some opinion leads to things being accepted as fact. Said so myself, though I think the appropriate word is speculation since opinion is never evidence.  But I hestitated to attack your vocab.

I honestly don't really care if he stays or goes anymore...but it seems that if he goes, we will be selling at a fire sale price as neither or the interested clubs have much to give or are willing to give much. It's is what angers me about playing this out so publically. We showed our hand very early ...now it's as if he has to go..even if we get stuff all

Watts is holding out to go to Geelong...

He would have already nominated Port other wise.

Motlop compensation (likely 21) will be traded to the Suns in Ablett deal and Dees too receive one of Suns later 2nd round picks. Approx 25 or 26.

 

Are you saying pick 21 gets Ablett and pick 25..?

I find it very strange that these days people think they somehow have intellectual property rights over content they didn't create, but shared it to a social platform before others did. 

(not a personal attack on you, just an observation) 

How about Geelong handover pick 34 and pick 21 for Watts and we give them back pick 28

Gold Coast wants a player for Ablett, expect a player and pick 35 to Gold Coast, Watts and pick 45 to Geelong for Pick 21.

Package up the pick 27 and 36(Adl Pick) to Gold Coast for Pick 22 and 4th Rd pick to be sent to Fremantle for Balic.

Leaves us with Lever, picks 21, 22, Joel Smith and Balic.

Out Watts and picks

Plays out like that I reckon a pretty good trade week

For those who came in late, here is a summary of this thread so far .

There's a  blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which may not even be there.

AFL trade radio just announced that a journalist on the floor has said that Watts has nominated PORT. They have pick 30 and 33 so who knows. Maybe just pick 30 for Watts it seems

Don’t mind seeing him go if the price is right, once we start talking about receiving a pick in the 30’s+ then my preference would be for him to stay.

In the last few minutes, H Sun reporting that Watts has chosen Port. Won't be announced till after Stringer trade goes through, though what the connection is I'm not sure.

Agree on the above re Port cap questions, but someone posted that they had plenty of room, so impossible to know. Think the Motlop to Port move would give Watts more, not less, of an incentive as it makes them more of a destination club.

Picks could be the sticking point, Port only have second round picks in the thirties (or thereabouts).

Total bloody disaster if that's all we end up with. Better off hanging on to him.

Would only agree if we can package up for one of Richmond's first round picks.

Agree it's slightly unders but we knew we'd be getting unders when we publicly kicked him out. It'd leave us with 28,30 and 35...I'm sure Taylor can't do some pretty good things with those 3.

not much choice after the way this game has been played.

To say it was amateur is a gross understatement.

Remind me never to ask the MFC list management team to negotiate on my behalf.

But you are super naive if you don't think many of the players you're exciting about seeing next year in the red and the blue aren't currently texting each other in anger and frustration about the way in which Watts is being exited from the club.

Truth or conjecture?
