Trade and Free Agency rumours


Nascent

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.

Probably worse than that the power resides in the agents.

They are the ones whispering all this sort of diatribe to the players of "you are worth 1 million a year" ..

Almost totally rules us out of getting the top 8 pick we were looking for. Hope the club are steadfast on the two first rounders + 1 second rounder. Give them Jackson and a third back. Hopefully their initial demands stay true.

Here's hoping Freo enter the Bowes race so we can get Pick 7 instead.

How many number 1 picks have Carlton had?! Did I hear correctly recently that Horne-Francis is the only number 1 draft pick North have ever had? 

Yep, JHF was their first. They'll have another one this year to boost up that leaderboard. And next year, and the year after...

Some good points but we did actually add Ben Brown which went long way towards winning us a Premiership....He was banged up this year, as were many others.  Our selection policy re injured players is one of the biggest things we need to change for following year.  Mostly i think we have the personnel.....Just some tweaks in gameplan, ball movement and selection integrity and we will be right in the mix again.

Agree

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. 

Yeah but at the same time players being forced to play for a club they hate & don’t want to be at isn’t good for the game. Imagine your boss telling you that your stuck at a [censored] job where you hate the place & that you’re not allowed to leave. The AFL is the most draconian, backwards comp in the world in this regard & it hasn’t made the comp any fairer or even in 1 single way,despite what they preach.

I agree!

can’t see them letting him go 

 

What benefit is it to the club in keeping him?

The bloke refuses to train or play, still gets paid & then leaves at end of next year anyway. It happens in other sporting codes where blokes that don’t want to be there just disrupt the club, cause trouble & that hurts the club more. 
Take a trade now & get 2 good picks for him & get rid of the cancer. New coach & time to start fresh in their rebuild.

Rubbish.

Dees, Tigers, Bulldogs all with drought breaking flags in the last few years. Freo, Adelaide, GWS all in Grand Finals.

The evidence says you're completely wrong.

You do have to leave the door open for that stuff I guess. I still get this slight unprofessional feel from him though, it does seem a bit Scully like. Have to feel for North.

Oh I feel for North & I don’t agree with what he’s doing but the world is getting softer by the day & this is what the current generation is like. I think mummies boys that need to go home do mum can tuck them in like Jackson are pathetic. Hate to go to war with these blokes. But it’s the modern reality & it happens in other codes where they know they can’t force players to perform at a place they don’t want to be at.

McKay signs for 7 years with the Blues. No doubt this is a result as a number of clubs chasing him this year. 

Carlton will have some cap issues soon I wonder who they end up dumping. 

That's going to have a ripple effect. Wonder how many clubs will now want to trade up and get their hands on Cadman now.

So if North don't get a deal done for Logue they are prepared to take him in the pre season draft? The richochet effect means West Coast are next in line and would take Jackson. Not sure how that affects our deal for Jackson but I kind of hope that North's no.1 PSD pick stays open as a threat as long as possible. Every bit counts.

SEN said this morning that Freo are offering Pick 13 and F1, but want a second round in return. They can get farrked

 

If Freo can turn pick 13 into a top 10 pick it would end up the practically the same as we paid for Lever.  This would seem fair.

Trade radio this morning said that James Harmes was seen at the Hangar last week.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
