Nup.  A purgative!

He talks a lot of c#*& as well, he said on Sen last week that Kelly from the cats owes the Geelong football club, because they picked him up last year when no one else did?

GCS are in serious trouble

most managers of the top 8 draftees would have been having a word with GCS re the difficulties their charges would face if moving to the club.

The comments by the Port list manager are to be expected. What is the worst the AFL will do... "you should not have said it" and we all move on.

GCS need to get in senior players that they can keep and build from there.

They really are a serious basket case

The comments by the Port list manager are what every honest footy person thinks.

I've heard a number of deals are actually done, but the AFL is getting clubs to hold of announcing them so there's something to show in their deadline deals broadcast on Wednesday night. until then expect a very slow flow of minor trades.

Not sure if serious.

If you are R&BR, then that is farcical by the AFL.

I would be 0% surprised if this happens.

Something I've heard (so rumor) but seems to have some substance. The AFL are keen to get the trade period as another 'must watch event' which is why they have extended out the close time on the Wednesday.

You mean like watching a ‘circus’. 

Not much meat on the bone in 5 days.

Stuff a circus.

Mark my words... I can see this being picked up by a tv network. Imagine the drama, emotion, intensity, build up & tears. All before the first guy drops...I mean traded!

We need something to replace that boring Survivor show.

Any ideas?

If that is what they are doing they need to shorten the trade period.  We will have had about 4 days of nothing. 

If it is all about the theatre they should make it 5 days not 10!

Trade period is boring due to the perception there will be trades announced continually throughout. Why not something along the lines of the following. 2 days for clubs to chat. 2 days for players to be sounded out. A week for Medicals and site tours and players to announced preferred destinations. . 2 days for actual trades but keep them under wraps . All announced on tv each of the 2 nights in a 2 hour televised event.

Why is it farcical?  You seriously think they will run a live event and have nothing happen.

I heard that last year something like 11 trades up to the last day of trading and then 16 ON the last day.  Likely to be similar this year.  AFL happy with that result for their event.

The whole first week should be done in secrecy, if they want to make Wednesday a huge event.

A 2 hour lowdown episode. I don't know if they have done this before.

Was just told by someone at a club (not ours) they knew there were deals pending but they had to hold off, they weren't in a position to know about the actual deals though

Now the radio is saying that the Dylan Sheils trade to Essescum may not happen (as GWS are demanding two first round draft picks)!

Polec now claiming Wingard's head was "in no mans land" at Port Adelaide before deciding to leave. Can't he keep his big mouth shut on other people's business.... Isn't he the fool that said Gaff would be playing alongside him at Norf?
