He’s 100% on the radar and I can confirm he’s been seen in and around Melbourne. #ETtradebreaker

Facebook says we offered Tyson but it was rejected.

But, you know, Facebook.

If that was the case, then i am glad they rejected it. Tyson is worth more than a 3rd round pick, Preuss not so much.

Laughable!  Lewis will be gone in 12 months, Jones not long past that.  Tyson has an important role to play in this side over the next few years.

if we trade tyson for a player who can't even get a run at all in 2018 i will fair dinkum SPEW UP

tyson is a best 22, second rotation inside midfield / first winger for us at the moment

preuss can't even get a game ahead of majak daw as a relief ruck for old man goldstein

With an ageing midfield North would be crazy not to take that deal, not that I want to lose Tyson.  If the fb post is true, maybe our offer was Tyson plus a draft pick and North baulked at that?

Just realised Preuss is in contract till end of 2020.  So we must really want him to effectively trade him out of his contract, so maybe it is a simple player swap...

...North will want overs...

Garlett & 43 for Preuss & 63 sounds reasonable to me.

Have to be prepared to pay a little overs for someone who has 2 years to run on a contract.

I love the idea of us aquiring Preuss. Our midfield could be coming into a decade of dominance and our season would be derailed with the current back up ruck stocks we have after Max. I'd be willing to pay the bloke huge overs to sit down at Casey and be the raininy day rainbow should big Max suffer and injury next year. The benefit to Casey and the developement of our midfield brigade at Casey would be so beneficial.

How many years was Jonathan Griffin back up to Sandilands? The big fella is STILL going, while Griffin finished his career on 97 games in a decade-long playing career as second fiddle 

Some blokes are more than happy to be role players eeking out a long career as a result

I have backed Tyson.

But after the prelim deesaster, Tyson for Preuss sounds like a fair deal.

Preuss is an imposing figure, he can more than hold his own. Therefore we should be emboldened by Mason cox's performance in having confidence that one of our duo can be a strong marking forward for 70-80% game time. Lever and May allow Gawn to rest forward reliably instead of in defence too.  

Hogan, VDB, petracca given more time in middle as bulls as Weed TMAC & Preuss is enough. Then we alternate a new small forward in there with spargo, hannan and melk.

Why are we talking about May, he is apparently off to the Pies.

It was reported that he met with Melbourne on his own initiative late last week to sound out his options.

How could we even get him? We have no first round draft picks, and you know GC will want something big in return.

Yeh I have no idea to be honest. I'm just repeating what I have read.

Would be nice to have him, maybe Jason Taylor and Todd Viney can work some magic?

The club has made some good trade deals in the last few years but we really need to start nailing free agency if we want to make a serious tilt at a flag.

After yesterday, this seems like a much better idea.

Not that Max played badly but the Eagles worked out how to play him. Having either Vardy or Lycett go with him when he floated back or forward shagged a lot of our game plan. 

Preuss will be a definite starter of he is willing to pay a role that necessarily isn't first ruck for 100% of game time.

We need more speed and run, and delivery, from our mid-sized players.

IMO, we cannot play too many, not with speed and high disposal quality.

(Re Steven May)

What do you think is most important to the GCSuns, at this point for their club ?

I heard a whisper that we are intending to play two rucks next year.  Hence our interest in Pruest.
