Preuss for Tyson. Yes that works. Maybe we can snag a late pick in the 60s to go with it. 

Preuss and NMFC pick 68 for Tyson

I like the idea of swapping Tyson for Preuss. However, I only hope Mahoney and Co. push for a little more than a direct trade. Say start with a second-round pick, and settle with a third, or swap of a second and third. Alternatively, salary cap payment of Preuss.

Why, because we know that Tyson is North's contingency to Gaff. I predict their salary cap savings won't roll over again (someone can clarify this, but is it two years non-fulfilled salary cap, 5% max, can roll over?). Furthermore, Tyson is a 100+ game player, former number three draft pick (if that means anything), while Preuss has only 8 games and is a former rookie selection.

I presume one of the sides is currently pushing for a little more, which would explain the delay.

I wonder if North supporters would be arguing the opposite? I know Tyson played more games than Preuss in 2018 but on a needs basis, I think it's arguable that we need Preuss more than they need Tyson.

Goldstein turns 31 next year. How many more seasons are they expecting out of him?

I like the look of Preuss but their willingness to part with him at this stage is...interesting. I’m hoping we see a pick upgrade in this deal.

And the huge knee into Mummy guts would hurt too.

Looks like a nasty bastard so side benefit of never having his crash into Max

Indeed they are, I've been told that on big footy, they are suggesting that, one idiot, at least, wants Tyson and we pay half his contract for the next two years plus our first round pick from next year for Preuss.  There are others that are stupid, but that is the most stupid, no wonder most think Norf supporters are morons.

i reckon we should send him with a baseball bat to negotiate with Freo - he would swat Peter Bell like a fly

These new rules would suit him too, can just grab it out of the ruck (goodluck tackling him if youre a midfielder) AND up forward he can just shove [censored] out of the way

Finalised trade confirmed by the AFL website. Tyson to North and big boy Preussy and a 4th rounder to us.

New ruck rules are gonna benefit big guys like Pruess as well. He can essentially grab it and go, or give it off to a quicker mid without worrying about prior.

Great Result, get rid of Tyson, to cover a massive hole on our list.  With Bradke as the devolping ruck, I still think we will look at Rookie draft another ruck from state league competition.

Pretty close, Norm 👍

Tyson would've had limited opportunities with us and I think he suits Norf to play the Dalsanto role, though Dal was a better player than Tyson. 

Preuss is what we need. I can see him helping out down forward, or letting Max help out down forward for 10 mins each qtr.

Plus it's a salary dump for us, freeing up SC space for May or to bank for next year.

Both clubs win IMO

With the pick we've got for Kent, can we package those together for Carlton's first pick?  Or will Carlton need to hand over their second rounder as well?
