Tom Green (Drafted by GWS Giants)

Strange as it may seem, I was just reading this profile about him from respected draft watcher Knightmare and I like what I’m reading. He’s the grandson of Michael Green, former Tiger premiership ruckman who studied law with me at Melbourne Uni. 

AFL Draft Wrap: Shades of Patrick Cripps in GWS academy prospect Thomas Green

“Green possesses an imposing physical profile at 190cm, 88kg and provides a similar impact around the ball to Patrick Cripps.” 

Just wondering if there’s any vision around because it would be tempting to have a crack at this bloke?

It would be interesting to see how he goes because if he is rated enough for around pick 3 and our recruiters feeling comfortable about using that pick for him potentially I'd be totally fine with us nominating him to prevent GWS from getting a basic free hit at him.

Micheal Green married a Sierakowski to add to the pedigree. Quality people to go with the physique, maturity and ability. Take him

I’d wager London to a brick that we’ve told GWS we intend to nominate Green if we keep pick 3 and will happily keep him, however we’re also open to the possibility of a trade if they can get us back a pick in the top 10 plus another first rounder/early 2nd, maybe more.

12 & 18 for 6 is a guide.

3 for... 6 & something in the early 20s?

How much do you value sliding back 3 slots at the pointy end? 

Then factor in the high value for GWS because of what they can do with it.

Very good player- but I feel whatever we bid, they’ll match.

 

Therein lies the rub. If they have to match, better to get something decent for Bonar, then throw that in with 6 to us for pick 3.

I was reading earlier on the AFL website that if Jacobs nominates GWS as a free agent their Tomlinson compo will slide back to the 3rd round from the 2nd round. Alternatively they'd have to agree to a trade with Adelaide. Will this impact what they are capable of allocating to makeup the difference to pick up Green?

We just make it plain we will be nominating for Green so let’s do a deal with pick 3 vs your Pick 6 and a player of our choice and some swapping of back end picks or next years to make it work. But who would we want and realistically get from GWS in this scenario? Would they move on a key forward or pacey outside mid?

It sounds like it'd be akin to having two Oliver's in the middle. 

Is there any chance GWS wouldn't match our bid, or is all the noise and movement with St Kilda, GWS saying they're desperate for Green?

Would be a great pick up for player morale, but i worry that he may be too old and past his best.

Haha beat me to it. Thought the exact same thing when I saw the thread.

Miss Green was my grade 2 teacher in 1963 at St Scholastica's East Burwood. She was Michael Greens sister and a goddess to us little tackers. I would be so happy if this came to pass.

Very touching but my priority is that he can play footy big time!

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
