West coast ruled out using pick 2 straight for LJ. No way they give up pick 2 and 20 lol.

Knowing nothing about Trade Radio,  is the above a runour, likely deal, or Adam Cooney (as usual) being silly?

Random hypothetical that has no basis in reality.

13 + F1st + North's F2nd for Jackson +  our F2nd + Brisbane's F2nd (from GWS for Toby). That would be similar to the Jeremy Cameron trade.

Edit: that can't happen because I got the GWS - Brisbane swap around the wrong way. But maybe we can get something for Toby to make this work, e.g. Richmond's 31 via the Hopper trade.

All spit-balling. It is surprising how much of that they are still doing now that the period has started.

Geelong now in the box seat for Bowes, so that didn't age well...Essendon CEOs have been known to last longer than that!

Except that Bowes is going to Geelong.

Pies would love to get their hands on 7, as part of the Henry deal, but may settle for 18, now that Cats have 7. Other picks could be involved.

Half the present team at Hawthorn doesn't want to play with them anyway.

West Coast are making far too many moves and gestures to be a team that doesn't believe they're a legitimate trade option for Luke Jackson.

GWS and Sydney but not good ones. North might end up with pick 8 and could trade 8 and their future first but I can’t imagine they’d be too keen.

Have to imagine the Eagles would want to use a top 10 pick. So they’d need to find a team with 2 of them to give us one. 

Gold Coast should have 5 and 7 but they’re Gold Coast!

Agreed.

Meanwhile Freo are weakening their draft hand wanting to trade in 2 GCS players.

Unless they can somehow swap F1st round picks (and others to get the right balance) as part of the trade their chances of getting a deal done for LJ are slipping.

So we get pick 13 and GCS F1st. 

It works in theory but can't see them doing that.

#7 is gone with Bowes to Geelong

I could see a situation where that pick 2 goes to the Cats for pick 7, 18 and potentially a swap of picks. 

The Eagles are more keen on picks in the teens due to W.A talent there and would be rapt if they could get in Jackson for 7 and 20 and keep pick 18 in the first round i reckon

They could swap with GWS for 12 and 15 +/- equalisers.   Use 15 and give us 12 and their own F1st!!

The problem is that the Cats need to find two first round picks for Henry and Bruhn so pick 2 doesn't help them do those trades.  Of course they could offer it to GWS and get 12 and 15/19 back.

So many permutations!

I wish next Wednesday would come round quickly!!

And Geelong get Cadman to replace aging Cameron and Hawkins. 🤮

I hate the Cats with a passion.  If we lose Jacko and get pick 18 (and a future whatever) while they upgrade to pick 2 (essentially because they can pay Bowes salary) I will spew 🤮

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
