  1. There’s a theory that when clubs trade their picks, they usually discuss and agree among themselves as to who they won’t take with the picks swapped. If that’s the case, it’s feasible that we have some consensus from Freo that they won’t select certain players with #7 & #8 leaving Carlton as the party that could spoil our efforts to select who we’re looking at with #10. We could also have agreed with them that we’re leaving Jack Martin alone. This could leave open a clear path for us to get the man we want. This wouldn’t be so easy or clear cut if we then split 10 for 14 & 17 etc. Anyhow I think we’re done doing splits.
  2. Two important questions for me - 1. Who is the dude from the Dolphins? 2. Is it the Frankston Dolphins or the Miami Dolphins?
  3. Injury notes from the media:- • Jake Lever (ankle), Braydon Preuss (shoulder) and Sam Weideman (hips) have had post-season surgery • Adam Tomlinson (calf) and Charlie Spargo (ankle) had minor setbacks last week as they begin their program Injury notes track watchers:- • Aaron VandenBerg, Austin Bradtke and Harrison Petty - rehabbers increasing their work load • Oskar Baker and Mitch Hannan with Tomlinson rehabbers walking laps • Joel Smith appears to be on his own programme doing light duties • Neville Jetta, Kade Chandler, Lever and Weideman also on light duties • Clayton Oliver trained on Friday with his left shoulder heavily strapped and left training early again • Kade Kolodjashnij collided with Matty Hore at training and went off early favouring his right arm • despite those reports from earlier in the week Steven May trained on Friday in no apparent discomfort
  4. I wonder what’s happening with Sam Murray?
  5. There’s a bit of talk around that Melbourne might draft Brodie Kemp who suffered an ACL injury in July and will miss most of 2020. There is another player who missed all of 2019 through the same injury incurred at a pre season training camp - Flynn Perez, who might be available with that last pick of ours because he’s been off the radar. * not suggesting we take two players recovering from ACL’s.
  6. It seems to me that this 3rd tall forward to kick 50 goals is a bit of an elusive character. Are there any decent ones seriously available now that the trades are over?
  7. So with three spots available and two players uncontracted, I suppose that the club will show its hand when a decision on the futures of JKH and Billy Stretch is made. Then it gets down to whether there are spots available to take delisted free agents or players in the drafts. Interesting times.
  8. Players to be traded tomorrow? Blake Acres Callum Ah Chee James Aish Josh Bruce Dan Butler Brad Crouch Tom Cutler Joe Daniher Josh Jenkins Zac Jones Alex Keath Riley Knight Jack Martin Tom Papley Andrew Phillips Marc Pittonet Zac Smith Jack Steven Lewis Taylor
  9. In the company of ANB and Josh Wagner.
  10. Here’s an article from Fox Sports that contains the majority of the information which will be repeated on a continuous reel for the next week - AFL 2019 trade period preview: Club-by-club guide and every player who could move
  11. Gunston would be a player we could look at in a trade.
  12. Today’s Combine activities involved the welcome, medical testing and media / club interviews. The testing begins tomorrow. Prospects to watch at the Draft Combine
  13. My guess is that Collingwood will come to the party and give Elliott the three year contract that he wants. We should be after someone like Sam Gray who might be more gettable.
  14. Seems to be on the outer at Tigerland and playing for their VFL side. He only picked up 13 possessions yesterday in their final but finished with four goals. Worth a look?
  15. I’m concerned at the fact that we haven’t had a single Rising Star nomination in the past three seasons. This is has been brought about in part by the fact that we have traded out three first round draft picks. Meanwhile, have already been overtaken by other clubs who have picked and played young players. The legacy of our policy may not serve us well in the long run. We need to get young kids of quality onto the list.

  24. It’s been easier for De Goey this year being at a club with more stability in terms of winning and not having to fill gaping holes in their forward line. Trac will come good in time.
