Geez, tough offseason for Norf...

North should rightfully demand the number one pick for him. Anything less is a lose for them. The AFL need to do something here. First Jackson, now JHF. Murmurs about Pickett. The draft was meant to be a means to even the competition, not a nursery ground for homesick boys. North have every right to be pee’d off about this, the same with us and LJ.

Gotta change the contracts for first rounder draftees. The top kids get drafted to the struggling clubs and want to leave straight away. A number one pick leaving after one season is not good for the game. 

not much that can do unfortunately, he is still contracted

judging from how unhappy jhf seems at north, i wonder if this could be the first time we simply see a player refuse to play for a year

Cam McCarthy sat out a year before moving from GWS to Freo

It’s already happened a few years back. Can McCarthy at GWS requested a trade to Freo in his home state of WA. It was rejected. He then returned to WA and sat out for a year. The next year he requested trade again and GWS traded him to Freo for stuff all. 

Players hold too much power and it’s ruining the game.

I reckon the Cam McCarthy trade is a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of going down that road. Looked a decent player early in his career but didn;t look the same at Freo. Sitting out the year was a bad idea i reckon

these 1-3 year players tho...demanding trades after they've played less than 50 games! pfft...try less than 20!!

Ssh, we may be interested in Finn Callahan, who we looked at in his draft year, but he went far too early for us and he was a Dees supporter.

Whether there's any truth to the rumours or not, I can't see Port prying Pickett (say that three times fast) away from us if they plan to land both JHF and Rioli this off season.

Probably no chance this year, unless we could add a player to Bedford and a good pick. Even that probably won’t get them interested, unless he could convince them he will leave next year.

If we're not we should be.  I know from a GWS point of view he was offered an extension beyond the standard 2 years he signed as a first round pick.  He hasn't signed that extension...

I wonder what it would take to get them interested, if we could get him interested. Bedford is a small entree, before the main meal.

Maybe we should help Port out and give them one of the first round draft picks we get for Jacko so they can package that up with their existing 1st pick to get JHF.    All we'd be looking for in return is Georgiades.

We'll have more leverage next year when he's OOC.  I doubt he does a JHF and asks to be traded in-contract.

I'm drooling at the thought of this. Was very impressive in his first game against us. Showed incredible poise and footy smarts way beyond his years. Can't see any chance this year with GWS likely losing Bruhn and Taranto but I hope we stick with it for '24. Would fit in perfectly on the wing.

Maybe GWS are offering Finn as a salary dump for pick 5….. I hear his base wage is backend and they are up to their ears in salary cap issues re signing Hogan.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
