So appears Collingwood are front runners for Aish & Treloar acording to this article.

http://www.news.com.au/sport/breaking-news/collingwood-is-hopeful-of-securing-adam-treloar-and-james-aish-during-afl-trade-period/story-fnect155-1227479263831

And I note that Paul Seedsman's name was thrown up, however Brisbane wouldn't accept him in a straight swap for Aish.

Maybe Melbourne can get involved here? Maybe Collingwood can throw Seedsman to us with Howe then going to Brisbane. Maybe a swap of Collingwood's 2nd round pick for our 3rd also?

I rate Seedsman, played really well v us on Queen's Birthday last year. 23 years old, 190cm, 87kg, nearly 50 games experience averaging 16-17 possesions a game. Outside wing/half back with pace and a long penetrating kick. Exactly what we need. http://www.collingwoodfc.com.au/player-profile/paul-seedsman

We may not be able to land the likes of Dangerfield, Treloar, Prestia this year. But players like Seedsman could be the exact type that could help take us forward.

The likes Paul Seedsman, Andrew Moore & Daniel Gorringe could be more valuable then people think.

He's more of the same tho - another mid-tall half back flanker.

We already have Garland, Howe, Grimes, Lumumba and Cross playing that role - do we need another?

I think you mean to say we have players who play the HB flanker position.

Garland, Howe, Grimes and Cross are hardly line-breaking hard running flankers.

Lamumba was supposed to be one but for various reasons we haven't seen it this year.

Seedsman is a quick line breaker with a long and penetrating kick but not overly accurate or damaging kick so I'd say we don't need him because we have Lamumba who hopefully next year will have a better year. I'm sure Collingwood saw Seedsman as a direct replacement for Lamumba positionally speaking but he hasn't come on this year.

Looking at what our backline needs, it's clear we lack composure and skill back there. Garland again was back to his old ways on the weekend, consistently butchering the ball/throwing it straight on the boot when there's a handball on and covering the ground like a wounded elephant. Always looks [censored] when he's playing.

We have really missed Salem back there this year and I hope we target another lethal left-footer who is either a really good runner or a great contested player. Both would be preferable.

We're a one-dimensional unit back there and it needs addressing this off-season.

Seedsman is being put up for trade as he is massively inconsistent. plays a terrific game and then gets dropped after going missing.

maybe that will come with maturity - I thought he was younger than 23?

worth a look. if his attitude is good. we def need speed and skill off half back

If we are chasing a back flanker who breaks lines and kicks well, I hope we set our sights higher than Seedsman.

I remember watching the ANZAC day game where he was best on ground which was followed by him being subbed off the next week.

He's a ok player but I hope we're looking at something better.

wouldn't trust anything from the filth

I was about to say - when did we last get a trade (or raid) from Collingwood who actually delivered on his promise?

I must say, off hand, I can't remember one since the father of that young tall who was supposed to take us apart a couple of weeks ago. (Some doomsayers here had him down for a 10 goal bag as I remember).

Seedsman & Yarran !??

Now just before ya shoot me down

Did you all see how Hawks speculative picks as appeared in todays' Hun, have turned out sensationally!??

Lets be bold and if we pay slightly overs ..... so be it!

Gotta be better than Bail, Skills, M Jones,( That other bloke who I won't name) Fitzy,Terlich and one or two others!??

Zero accountability defensively, would be more suited to a team like Hawthorn where his deficiencies don't stand out as much

Has never really had a proper preseason though which may explain the inconsistency

Collingwood have several similar players so he could go cheap

Agree, I'm surprised there's some love for him, most Pies supporters aren't overly concerned to lose him... apparently a little soft as well.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
