  1. Have suggested this before, but anyway we can tag or pin posts in the training threads that relate to training? Absolutely love all the training posts, cannot be assed reading all the rubbish internet bickering between them
  2. Found this article which helps. I'll try do some scenarios a bit later. https://m.afl.com.au/news/2015-08-12/afl-closes-draft-bidding-system-loophole
  3. Let's say they trade out pick 6 for a future pick, are they still able to match a bid if it came at pick 3? I know they can go into deficit, but how much is the max they can go into deficit? I imagine pick 40 & 59 still wouldn't be enough?
  4. Be very surprised if those picks could turn into anything early. I don't think we will trade with GWS. They will hope we don't bid and then trade with Adelaide I feel. If we do bid, they may even trade pick 6 for a future first rounder. My only query on this option would be whether they would have enough points to match the minimum requirement to match a bid? And if they did, would they still then need to draft 2 further players at the end of the draft to meet the minimum requirement?
  5. If we can fit the large first year salary into the cap (maybe a bit of Elliot money?), it means the remaining 4 years are probably $450-500k, which isn't too bad considering we're not trading anything for him. Big issue is how much space do we have in next year's cap? Happy to pay him whatever is left in the cap for next year as it would just be left unspent otherwise
  6. Will they have leftover picks to trade with Freo? Surely they are all used to match the pick 3 bid?
  7. A way around it might be get Adelaide involved and they get 22 and we get their 23?
  8. Makes a lot of sense. But does anybody know if are we allowed to do 8 for 10 and 22, given 22 was originally our pick, traded to Freo in Langdon trade? Reading a couple of previous posts suggest this may not be permitted under the new rules?
  9. Not sure that is right. They traded away 12 and 18 to obtain 6. 12 and 18 are worth more points than 6
  10. Best part of trade week are these inside info posts, love em, cheers for the info! In your opinion, do you think it would be difficult to appease the other party in a trade for this player with our current assets? Or am I pushing my luck with this question haha
  11. Think we are still keen on it. In Mahoneys trade radio interview he mentioned it was important we maintained our draft position, both this year and next, as part of todays trades to set up for the remaining period of the trade period.

  13. Are GWS in a worse position points wise after that trade? If so that would strengthen our hand. They really need 3 to make it worth it
  14. Do we do pick 3 for 6 and next years GWS 1st rounder?
  15. They need to introduce the two year contract, plus a further two year team option for draftees. That way it's much harder for a Ben King to leave so quickly. But not every draftee gets 4 years if they don't earn it
