This talk of Adam Saad for pick 7 must surely be posturing.

If we got Michael Hibberd for pick 30 and Melksham for around the same, how the hell is Saad worth pick 7?

Saad's better that Hibbo and not coming off a missed year. His value is around 14-20. Carlton should split the pick 7 and eventually Essendon will have to accept a later pick. But for now the silly stuff continues.

Dodoro isn't actually as bad as people think. The only time he really dug his heels in was for Paddy Ryder and history will show Ryder was probably worth digging his heels in for. 

He turned down a deal on Daniher but it would've been brave to accept losing him before trying everything to keep him.

Dododo losing more of his ‘mind’ with advancing age, that and the massive superiority complex........

Every time ET posts in here I get excited, thinking he's about to post his next big scoop. But to no avail.

I wonder what it would take to prize Devon Smith out of Essendon. Probably too much.

Essendon think Saad is worth more than pick 7 but Dunkley is only worth a late first. They’re all insane

No idea if these are two of the guys Dr EvIl is talking about but a mate told me today that we're interested in Ed Richards and Jack Billings. 

No idea what that means in terms of likelyhood of getting them, but apparently they're two players we'd like to get across if we can. 

i played with sauce and i gotta say he didn't stand out during his draft year, hasn't really dominated a game yet and probably lucky to not get dropped more often, hes been tried at HB, wing and small forward (giving me poor mans hunt vibes and i dont like hunt), surprised he went as high as he did (i think the name helped a lot) and i would probably steer clear, theres better alternatives out there.

Interesting. Billing’s crosses my mind but it’d mean parting ways with a first rounder. Given our supposed interest in Finna Macrae it would mean Brayshaw would have to go you’d think?

Crouch to Saints rules out a straight swap too I’d suspect.

No clue how they'd get it done or anything but yes. a first rounder seems about right and he'd certainly improve the team

Richards would be handy on a half forward flank and an upgrade on Melksham IMO.

Not BIllings' biggest fan, but another lefty with good ball use.

i wonder if egg-smith is looking for opportunity at the top level, stuck behind many at tigerland, along with higgins/aarts

maybe tom langdon to join his brother too?

This is exactly what we should be doing, still early to mid 20's who can apply pressure, tackle and kick goals.

Ed Richards would be handy and maybe he is gettable. Contracted next year but he might be after a change. He moves well but doesn't get that much of it and I suppose he hasn't really improved that much in his 3 years in the system. I'd take him - could go ok on the wing. 

Couldn't see the Saints parting with Jack Billings. Would demand good coin too.

Only joking though right....

Can we keep the thread on track by not baiting each other?

Be interested to hear whether those two names @Dr evil alluded to are the same two names @Patches O’houlihan has heard.

Simple philosophy really. Everything they sell is pure gold and what they buy is pure rubbish. That is if you measure it by the demand or offer.

Billings would be the perfect outside tonic that we are desperate for. Like @Pulp Fritschon said though, can't see the saints parting away with Billings. They'd want a first round pick.

Richards is an interesting one. Played half back in his under 18s year and was pretty impressive but the doggies have played him as a half forward flank.

Brown and smith are coming, hind I think will as well, and there are two other players who’d walk into our best 22 that haven’t been mentioned on here that I’ve been asked not to name. But I’m sure demonlanders won’t complain when the names are revealed. 

we’re desperate to get young macrae through the door.
 

looking at a similar restructure to our list as the saints had last year introducing a lot of speed to their side 

Man I hope you're legit! haha

Billings is an interesting one. I know Roos really rated him and I think said we might have taken him pick 2 traded for Tyson/Salem. He had his worst year, played fwd a lot and only kicked 11 goals.  he was good last year though, averaging 26 touches.  he is smack bang in his prime but can't get that consistency.  maybe a move would be good for him.

worth a first rounded though after this year? maybe a late 1st rounder.

Still think the right play is to grab Tom Phillips. Would walk into our best 22 on the wing and is a good age bracket to give 6-7 years.  A three year contract deal and offering our 2021 2nd round pick to the Pies gets it done.  Makes sense to the Pies to free up salary room for their other priorities.

Would you do Brayshaw for Billings?
