Trade and Free Agency rumours

Who are the other players freo are chasing? 

given that they're trying to emulate our 2021 set-up it would not surprise me if zurhaar - another wa boy out of contract - was a key target

sideshow bob = tabener
fritsh = zurhaar
gawn / jackson = darcy / dog
anb = switkowski [fwiw he is really missed in their forward structure last few rounds]
pickett = walters
spargo = schultz

the one they really lack if lobb goes is a plugger mac type as that gut runner up to the logos as a chf

they're basically set up behind the ball very, very similarly to us (three talls, a host of mediums, no genuine lockdown defender) and if fyfe can ever get back to full fitness they have a similar midfield set-up too

Spot on about Switkowski, was almost a bigger loss than Fyfe.

Can't access the online heraldsun article, which could easily have no substantial information, but the headline suggests Cats and Tigers are the two front runners for Jacob Hopper.

Jack Gunston.

He still has it and is a beautiful set shot, something a lot of our guys aren't! He kicked 5.1 today (4 in the first half) and offers experience and leadership. Maybe even some strategic tips for our underperforming forward line! 

I believe he is a free agent as well, so we wouldn't need to trade any picks.

Exactly what we need, would be a great mentor for JVR also….

Have heard a rumour from a good source - A 3 way trade involving Naughton to Demons, Jackson to Freo and Lobbe to the Dogs. Watch this space.

Okay I will hold you to that as I just don't quite believe it.

Very difficult one to believe, Naughton is contracted for another 2 years and is a much better footballer than Lobb.

The entire Melbourne supporter base would be lining up to drive Jacko across the Nullarbor

He would be perfect. I would even give him half the year off to fix his knee issues.

I really don’t care what anyone thinks - apparently Naughton is unhappy at the dogs and wants a trade. I respect the source so make of it what you will.

When someone ends a trade whisper with this line, you know they mean business. #ETtheTradeWhisperer.

I think you will see from my history that this is not my style. I thought posters would be interested in the rumour but of course it comes with no guarantee except that the source is reliable.

I’m sure picks from the dockers would be involved as well

Would be an unbelievable get if it does come to fruition. Don't believe you're one to troll with trade rumours so I'll take you at face value.

Still can't see the dogs letting it happen though.

Well if they know Naughton wants out, it would explain their interest in Lobb

Heard we'll play Petty forward and Naughton in the backline

Now you I am far more suspicious of :laugh:

 

 

(Although that was actually the first scenario I though of, was a gun defender in his draft year)

The Dogs would want our 2023 1st as well . And we would probably have to do it or swap for one of their 2nds, to get him out of contract. Unless they Plan on asking for Logue as well. Can't see a club playing hard ball accepting Lobbe, Pick 12-14 x2

Oh fair enough mate, apologies. 

I genuinely thought you just threw that out as wishful thinking. 

Naughton to Dees is something I would not have expected at all.

I have no idea of your history but thanks for the rumour.
