How about you go back and read my original post where I said that "WC won't trade pick 2 for Jackson" ie MFC won't receive pick 2 which is the important point.

I did not say WC won't do a trade involving pick 2 so they can get suitable picks to trade for Jackson which is an entirely different thing.

I really think WC are just posturing.

I think they know LJ is Freo bound and just want to be able to say to their members we tried, but we weren't going to mortgage the place for him.

We clearly won't get 2 if he goes to Freo and then we won't get Cadman most likely either. Maybe we don't even rate Cadman that highly.

I wonder if JT has a couple of boys in mind he thinks he can get, with 2 slightly lower picks and maybe them and a 2nd rounder, or a player from the Dockers, is enough for us. We could then say we got 3 players for LJ.

Our first pick in the late 30's can then be used for Grundy and I wouldn't give any better.

He won't be going to WCE so forget that. They haven't even had a convo with him so aren't interested. Its Freo, but what can we get from them. I'd say it has to be one first rounder and a very good player? They haven't got anything else.

Yeah I can see this being an option but I think we would also need to get one of their early second rounders from this year. They will have 3 when Rioli leaves 

Would be happy with that

That second rounder being used on grundy

The other thing by west coast splitting pick this year and doing a pick swap next year they are still not losing any picks just moving down a few spots, and who’s to say their picks don’t end up better players.

I think people overate high picks in afl it’s not like nba where mostly the top three picks are superstar quality. 

look at Dangerfield pick 10 

Fyfe pick 20

selwood pick 7 

Toby Greene pick 11

Patty Cripps pick 13

I think both Freo and West coast can get the deal done without too much trouble. 
Freo will be looking for pick 28 of the dogs as a min for Lobb. Perhaps also a first round pick swap of 13&10. 
They also have another 3-4 players they are going to trade giving them picks to go after Brisbanes pick this year. So that would give them The dogs pick 10, Lions pick 15 and their future first. We would def be sending some picks back to them but they can get it done. 

Think Freo can get a deal done easy enough

5 & 7 feels overs for pick 2 but IF they were able to swindle that the deal with Melbourne feels about right…

Gold Coast have a heap of picks this year, and very few list spots. In fact I'd love to involve them in a 3 team trade, something like:

Melb Give: Jackson, pick 41 '2023 1st, pick 2023 3rd         Get: Pick 7, 2023WC 1st and Flanders (suns)

WC Give: pick 2, 2023 1st, 2023 2nd       Get: pick 5, 2023 Dees 2nd, J Sharp

Gold Coast Give: Picks 5 & 7, Flanders & Sharp      Get: pick 2, 41, 2023 WC 2nd, 2023 Dees 3rd

Gold Coast already have additional 2nd round (2) and 3rd round (1) picks this year, but I'd say they'll bundle them up to Brissy for their first round pick (currently pick 15) and their 2nd. Brissy with the compo from McStay should have close to enough for their 2 father sons.

West Coast would be mad to split their pick and give up next years. You need premium high quality talent in a rebuild, that means keeping the highest picks.

I don’t think they’re actually keen on Jackson at all. I think they’re just playing the game to make sure Freo cough up a fair price.

I'd count pick 5 and Jackson as pretty high end talent? Plus they still get a first round pick next year - it'll just be ours rather than theirs. Depends on how highly they rate their list and think this year was just a one off. 

I agree that he's most likely to go to Freo, and it's handy that WC are involved, even if it is just to force Freo to cough up a high price.

Oscar Allen’s the only good young player on their list. Pick 5 is great, but pick 2 is even better. Trading back makes sense a lot of the time but not at the pointy end of the draft 

I’m still a huge Jacko fan but I think he’s a luxury a really bad side can’t afford. He’s great for Melbourne and for Freo who have building blocks in place. If I’m the eagles I’m going midfielder, gun forward or backline general rather than a ruck/utility.

I'm not a huge draft follower first hand but reading what some observers (Twomey and from BF) there seems to be a clear pick 1 then the next 5 or 6 could go anywhere between picks 2 - 8 and then the rest is pretty even to around 30. So I'm not sure that this year it's easy to say pick 2 will be significantly better than 5, and can see that West Coast would see him as a direct replacement for Nic Nat, so would be hugely valuable for them. I still think Freo will get it done, but could see that West Coast would really be interested as well.

No, have a look at what the dogs lose/get, they lose Dunkely, and picks 11 & 29 and only get picks 14 and Lobb back. They can probably get Lobb on his own for pick 29 and might do a 14 to 11 downgrade, but in your scenario they'd be giving Dunkley up for nothing. Plus I doubt a 4 team trade would get anywhere near a starting point. 

Ah your right maybe the Dogs get Freo's future 1st or something ? but yes 4 team trade would be complicated. Just trying to find a way we can get two reasonably high picks off Freo in a trade for Jackson.

Someone from West Coast publicly stated that their interested so I'm not sure what you're on about.

Also, you do know that the trade period goes for a week and that clubs have the ability to trade picks, and Freo are about to lose a host of players to opposition clubs, for picks?  i.e. What they have right now means absolutely diddly-squat.

Do you not think that when the Jackson home rumour started, West Coast wouldn't have been on the front foot, or at least talking to him the whole time?

They said they were interested yesterday and haven't even spoken to him. He ends up at Fremantle, nothing surer.

Those players from Fremantle aren't going to net a whole lot. Maybe some pick swaps and upgrades, but I don't think we will get what we want re Jackson. The two top 10 picks are a pipe dream.

I can't see us letting Jackson go for less than a top 3 or two mid first round picks. If Freo don't have the picks and aren't prepared to trade players we can always offer Jackson a 1 - 2 year deal and commit to work out a fair trade the following year.

but surely only if they offer decent compensation.  
IF WCE made a far better offer then we do have to look after our own interests first, and he would still be over there near his mum.  

Absolutely Mono, we have asked for two top 10's, which is fair compensation. I guess we will work the anchors to achieve that. Whether they have the capital to deliver, is a different matter.

WCE also stated they haven't been contacted by melbourne or LJs manager. Absolutely posturing at this stage.

That might be true, but blind freddie can see it's in WCEs interest to play ball and push the price up that Freo will pay

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    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.
