  1. I did not realise Newnes was available and think it is definitely worth a chat to his management if enquiries into Jack Martin don't go anywhere. At the right price, I can see him as a defensive wing / half-back. I really think we need to work to have Salem up the field to kick into the forward 50 rather than out of the defensive 50. Perhaps Newnes offers an ability to do that?
  2. I voted 'A'. I don't like losing Frost's athleticism, but essentially swapping him for Tomlinson makes the team better overall. Indeed, Tomlinson and Langdon on either wing is an enormous upgrade over the absolute disaster we all saw on the wings throughout 2019. Just that alone will hopefully make a huge difference. Really loved the swap with North Melbourne. Next year's draft looks like a joke with all of the concessions, so preferencing this year whilst the Club has high picks is perfect, even if nothing further happens and we pick at 3+8. After the year from hell, I like that the Club is looking to maximise the 'reward' rather than denying it being there. Further improvement would be bringing in Martin and perhaps punting on Murray. The forward line remains problematic, but there didn't seem much out there, and I think Bruce or Jenkins would have been underwhelming solutions. I'm also happy to give Stretch and JKH another year. People say we have no depth, but they should be very good depth as long as there aren't 15 injuries at the same time. Overall, the FD added two very good wings and two of the best 8 kids in the country for Frost, a 2nd rounder, and a compromised 1st. That's good work imo.
  3. Not sure if this has been floated, but what if GWS offered 6 + 40 (Tomlinson compensation) + 2020 1st for Selection 3? I think it should be a player like most here, but if there is no possibility of getting a player what would it take?
  4. If we finish bottom next year, none of this matters anyway...
  5. Alternatively, they have nothing further lined up and value this year's draft much higher than next year. With the bidding next year (that we have no part in), I think it makes a lot of sense to go hard this year whilst the opportunity presents itself. There's also the potential of 2 years worth of salary cap relief from 2 players that should (!) be of high quality.
  6. I'm probably wrong about this, but maybe Kyle Dunkley counts as one of our draft selections for this year? Otherwise, we may have already agreed to upgrade a rookie? All of these concerns might be moot in 24 hours time anyway..
  7. I see what you mean, but that also assumes that the guy available at pick 14 is the one the Club wants. If the FD think that all the good players are gone before that, or are tied to F/S or Academy selections after, they might be looking at the equivalent of pick 25 or so available at 14.
  8. So completely contrasting reports - Wanting to draft high vs. Lining up a big trade I love Trade Week
  9. I don't think the points matter in this one because of the compromised draft next year. Let's say Melbourne finish 7th, that's looking like being end-of-first under normal circumstances, and if the Club wasn't planning on using 50 this year, the swap is 26 and approx. 16/17/18 for 8 in a non-compromised draft. I like it a lot!
  10. I love this!! Finally some creativity from the FD. My initial thought is that either 3 or 8 will be split again, with the Club looking to cash in with 3-4 early selections this year and ignoring next year. If it's with a player in mind, I'm a bit confused as to where that leaves our draft picks. One of these going out would leave us with one early pick and potentially nothing for a long, long time (this draft and next). For the first time this offseason, I'm perfectly happy to take those straight to the draft too.
  11. Maybe, but then why are all the coaches going?
  12. The Football Department are probably eyeing off an inside midfielder to take Frost's role once they ship him off. They should just cut anyone with any creativity this offseason and be done with it. Unreal
