AFL TRADE NEWS AND RUMOURS 


Whispering_Jack

Recommended Posts

I received an email overnight from Zero Hanger, an on line footy news site, that had links to a number of stories about possible AFL trades. I’m sure there will be more to come but here’s a summary - 

• after Adelaide delisted Tom Lynch, Kane Cornes was urging them to hold on to experienced players such as Daniel Talia to guide the youth through their current rebuild (the suggestion has been rejected and Talia has also been advised that he is no longer required at the Crows);

• Lynch is a free agent and one scribe weighs up the clubs that might want him. Essendon, Geelong, Melbourne, Richmond and the Saints are mentioned as likely candidates;

• still on the Crows, Matt Crouch is tipped to follow in the footsteps of his brother and depart West Lakes in taking up his free agency rights;

• Fremantle’s Adam Cerra has narrowed down his playing future to just two teams with a decision to be made possibly within the next two weeks. He will either remain a Docker or request a trade to Carlton; 

• GWS Giants spearhead Jake Riccardi is being monitored by several Victorian clubs on his current contract situation, with Carlton named as one keen suitor for his services;

• Jack Gunston is understood to be seen as a "gettable" trade option for rival clubs in the off-season;

• Swans gun Jordan Dawson is reportedly on the cusp of signing a new deal with the Swans despite interest from a number of rival clubs;

• Port Adelaide are showing preliminary interest in St Kilda free agent Jack Billings.

And why would Carlton need Riccardi - isn't that one area of the ground (KPP) that they have a surplus of?

I read something today on BigFooty that suggested Talia is well sorted with property developments and will play in the SANFL with his brother

Adelaide are really ripping the bandaid off

Carlton used to have a lot of brown paper bags. Maybe they found a few left over ones tucked away in the property room?

I'd be all over GWS' Tom Green. He will explode soon and his inclusion would enable us to be less reliant on Clarry and give us more midfield depth.

True but doubt we'd be able to get him - GWS will want over for him

Great player but probably not what we need right now 

Any outside mids we can go after? Where are they at the moment?

Good ones are tough to find it seems. Might be better off trading into this years 1st round.

We were right into him in 2019. Probably would have bid for him if Jackson wasn't there. JT was seeing them like beach balls that year, given the three we ended up picking and the interest in Georgiadis/Green. They are 5 of the very best players from the whole draft.

I think one of the reasons we were so big on Green though was his tremendous character, and those sorts generally don't go chasing coin after two seasons. So I'd give us little chance of landing him. Would cost a decent draft pick that we don't have in stock too.

One player I'd love to see us go after is Mitch Wallis. This guy is out of favour but tore us a new one at Metricon only 12 months ago, and was doing it to teams regularly up until this year. Would give us more firepower and a point of difference to BBB, TMac and Fritsch. Approaching 30 but this age demographic fits in with a sustained flag push and he wouldn't cost much.

I reckon you'll usually be able to prise a GWS mid as they seem to grow mids on trees up there (mostly through their academy).

I'd be thinking it's less about coin and more about opportunity. Lever is a great character too, but we chased him hard and landed him.

I really hope we're still keeping tabs on Tom.

Richmond might have a crack. They have the draft picks. He was a big Richmond fan apparently.

it helps when half of the team is rubbish

But the ither half is on massive coin.

They'd have Cripps, McKay, Weitering, Walsh, Saad, Williams and Martin chewing up a fair chunk of the cap.

Maybe we can pay them back for taking our big Melbourne fan in Dion Prestia? 😉

Daniel Talia is being delisted by the Crows. Surely he'll end up at the Bulldogs next year?

Didn't they turf his brother out for releasing Bulldogs gameplan info to Daniel? Would be weird if he ended up at the Dogs after that.

Yeah true but I reckon the dodgy half is on very little coin. Not great for team unity when imports are on massive money and aren’t delivering while ‘home grown’ talent have to take the hit. Williams especially was a terrible decision.

Riccardi showed a bit in his first few games, might be worth having a crack at him over another mid like Green

Think he is from Werribee? Choco may need to have a little word.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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

    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
