Trade Targets


Flag Favourites 3019

Recommended Posts

Have wanted Tippa for a few years. He and Kossie in the forward line would be absolutely electric.

Wouldnt have so much of a need for a power forward if we had that setup. Our forward 50 options are a gaping chasm in our current list.

Fritta leading up the ground further and delivering into the 50 with Tippa on a lead and Kossie scooping up the crumbs.

Big Footy has a thread that Jordan Clarke is "out of favour" at Geelong. He's definitely been out of the team but that is probably temporary since those geriatrics were the oldest team average age EVER in AFL/VFL history last week at 28y 134d.

Anyway Clarke would go alright at wing/HB for us.  Maybe a trade for Preuss + pick.

walla - along with stringer in particular - started to look very fat in the second half of 2020

still more than capable of performing but he definitely looked portly

6 months under burgess should do the trick

Lachie Hunter - could be on the table, is he an outside/inside mid? if he has that outside skill i would be interested to see if we tried to pursue him (although obviously has some D head factor about him).

 

Were rumours about him being unhappy at Dogs earlier in the year. Can win his own ball , but has played the wing role for Dogs beautifully. Great runner and positions himself really smartly. Would be a really good get to fill our wing spot.

i'm not sure this will be well recieved but a player i think we could get for a good price who'd add to our side is Brodie Smith from the crows, good speed, a good kick and would add a new dimension to our half back line. as well as some experience. i doubt it'd cost us much to get him over and i'm sure he'd be keen to come to a club more likely to contend in finals in the back end of his career.

Huge if true. He did have time off this year for a few reasons, so perhaps he wants out. He'd cost a fortune, but he's elite. Would be perfect for the opposite wing to Langdon. We'd have to offer a future first rounder and hope for the best.

They are desperate for a big bodied ruckman.

Andy Maher spitballing to the former Bulldogs captain.

A little irresponsible for the SEN to misquote their own hosts.

No way Hunter goes anywhere unless the Dogs get at least 1 elite player back. He's probably their 2nd most important player behind Bont.

He was perhaps unhappy earlier in the season. A serious drink driving charge and suspension followed by person leave will do that to you.

True. English has struggled and seems years off having a proper AFL big man body.

Pruess and future first rounder? I'd do it in a heartbeat. Hunter is elite.

How about we stop giving up first rounders. surely we've learnt our lesson. we're nowhere near the premiership window. Especially with Goodwin at the helm.

Yeah but we have no pick this year in a season where there wasn't much to get excited about. So we have to go another season with an unproven pickett and a promising jackson and rivers as our only up and coming players under 20

Lord we know how important a forward is to us given our goals this yr and last so we SHOULD MAKE ROOM for a forward imo.

Time will tell.

All our coin is sunk in TMac. He needs to be moved on somehow but there are no takers. I fear we’re stuck with him.

Not worth a new thread, but Sam Edmund reporting Devon Smith and Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti are unhappy at the Bombers. Would we have a crack at either? Could Smith play on a wing for us? Tippa would be amazing IMO.

 

Tippa would be a great get. Not fussed about Devon Smith.

Is there actually any bombers player happy at the moment?

What lesson? We’ll end up giving up the same pick to get Pickett as the pick we used on Pickett. A similar situation occurred when we traded up a year for Weid.

Trading Hogan for May worked beautifully. If it was pick 10 not pick 6 it would’ve been seen as a huge win.

The only time we’ve truly given up first rounders was for Lever and they weren’t the true high picks. We covered that off with getting plenty of 2nd rounders. We should aim to have a nice 2nd rounder and other useful picks this year. 

If you aren’t excited for Sparrow, JJ, Spargo, Fritsch and Petty then we just haven’t recruited well enough. I’m thinking there’s a bit of talent there we might see shine next year

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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
