We need to ensure we get enough 2nd/3rd round picks from Freo to grab the points require to satisfy Brisbane for their 1st rounder

 

 

 

Why not just tell Freo we want 3 first round picks and let them do the running around trying to get Brisbanes 1st rounder?

Peter Bell would offer them a future 4th for it

I think Max's comments were brilliant but are as much about putting an arm around Luke and showing that he supports him either way, as they are about trying to sway his decision. Great leadership,  but I don't know whether it changes my view on the situation all that much. Last time the media were so sure about a player leaving us Tom Scully had just held a press conference telling us he wanted to be a one club player

Can you remember the timeline on that? It was essentially a week or so before he then said he was off to GWS.

Or is my prejudice against him distorting the underlying facts here? I suspect it may be - but I don’t reckon there was a lot of runway between his b.s. statements and then hitting the GWS ejector seat.

That said, Jackson strikes me as a wholly different character to Scully - for a start, he seems very good natured and he’s definitely not a robotic sociopath.

Hope Maxy’s right here. I reckon Jackson has a big future, particularly with us.

My understanding was GWS lobbed a substantial increase plus his old man a job in the final couple of days.

Would love to see him sign on the week before the finals . That vote of confidence in the club would springboard the team in to the finals and give the rest of the AFL the big [censored] you

Would almost be the biggest F U since Trump won the US presidency.

We had all best hope North keep losing, if LJ wants to go back to WA.

Freo don't have the picks, and probably won't provide players of any value to trade.  

Eagles offer a bucketload to LJ to come to them,  and can pick him up in the pre-season draft, if they finish last.

He gets what he wants. They get what they want. We get nothing.

Freo have 2 1st round picks (this year and next). We're not going to reject them because it's not optimum trade value.

Jackson will nominate a club, and a deal will get done. 

Clubs and player managers are loathe to pull the PSD card.

For sure. It would still be nice for North to finish last though for that bit of safety blanket and take away some of that leverage for managers and clubs at the negotiating table.

Even if North finishes last WCE would still pick him up in the PSD. North aren't going to meet his price and force him to play somewhere he doesn't want to be. Especially when they are trying to build a culture there. Hell even WCE may not meet his contract demands if he makes it clear he only wants to play at Freo.

Agreed, Gonzo.  The big offer (if it is a big offer) is possibly only coming from one club

Especially as there is a large slice of speculation involved with a player like LJ.  He is not a proven star, he's not even proven at B+ level

But if course, he may well be heading for star-status

The pre-season draft as a choice happens very rarely and usually involves a player who definitely wants out (an element of disgruntlement)

My opinion (for what it's worth) is that he either ends up at Freo and they satisfy our demands in a trade (big ask) or he stays with us and signs at least a 2 year deal

I think you have it there Macca. I think he will go and that's ok with me but the min. is 2 first round picks.

The best thing to happen for us to have a chance to resign him was him being in Perth last week.

He had his first experience what it would be like to play for a club in a 2 club town.  The fish bowl where every thing you do someone is watching.  The media are all over you, walking down the street isn't an easy task, going to dinner you are guaranteed some one will want to disturb you for an autograph photo or chat.

No doubt he gets that a little bit in Melbourne but times it by 1000 in WA.

I don't think we need to worry as I reckon Eagles will destroy the Crows in Kennedy's final match.

I'm hoping Dogga stays as he is likely to be a very special player.  He's showing all the signs - particularly given his age - but he's not there yet. He could be anything - the next Schwarz pre knee, Kouta, Goodes or something unlike anyone else that has played - or he may end up as a talented tall utility that can play anywhere but never masters a position.

It makes me think if I were a Freo supporter and we were giving up this year and next year's first round picks and Meek (as an example) and potentially losing some other players who think Jackson will take their spot or eat up too much of their salary cap... is this deal worth it?  Isn't this selling the farm?  Are they really just Jackson away from a premiership or do they need a few more young talented players coming through?  

I'm not doubting his value particularly when you see what the biggest trades have netted in recent years... but I feel like if it goes ahead, it could blow up in Freo and Luke's face.   There will be a lot of pressure on the kid to perform if this is what they have to give up.

See, I don't believe he's necessarily gone

2 first round picks isn't enough especially if the club knows that the pre-season draft isn't at play.  Are North or the Eagles going to pay him a lot more than what we would pay him (ball park $650k - $750k a year)

Does LJ even want to end up at either of those clubs?

Given that scenario we could play hard ball knowing that if Freo doesn't fulfill our needs, we'll get to keep LJ

I'd want picks 5, 10 & 18 knowing that there's a good chance that pick 5 or pick 10 could be a complete bust

Nothing is guaranteed with draft picks and that includes LJ becoming a top player ... that may or may not happen

Of course, if there is real, proven talent coming back our way (somehow) that changes the equation

There is no way he will go to the PSD.

He will not want that as part of his legacy and this will not get acrimonious.

I can see us with 3 first rounders over the next 2 years and I’d be surprised if we did not have void fillers in mind or even spoken to that these picks will be used on.

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
