With Grundy and no other changes it will be more of the same next year

So, whose fault is this bad news? Unless things are about to trickle, which is getting unlikely, we could possibly all see it happening weeks ago.

That cannot be right because Port are giving up F1, F2 and F2 and only getting F3 back, so they are still short F2, which was what the AFL refused to approve in the first place.  7 own the rights but know SFA, it's a disgrace.

Wow so Cadman is clearly a pipe dream now. It’s hard to see the forest through the trees but I just feel that we have slipped in this years trade period. 

Giving 13 for Grundy will be the cherry on top. 
 

Also if I’m a Norf fan, I’m spewing. Two pick 1s out for pick 2,3 and a F1(PA ~12-16). Haha what a [censored] deal.

Compare the pair:

JHF 1st year average mid = Pick 3 and a future first

Luke Jackson top flight ruck, premiership player, rising star= Pick 13 Future first, future second 

I know pick 1 was involved and 2+ 40+43 doesn’t make up all of that but FMD.

JHF in contract, LJ out of contract - that's the big difference.  North could have just said "see you same time next year Port, when Adelaide won't already be committed to Rankine"

Just saw the full trade and Port are getting some later future picks back.

PORT ADELAIDE
Trade out: Picks No.8, 43, 53, 57, 2023 first-round pick, 2023 second-round pick, 2023 third-round pick
Trade in: Jason Horne-Francis, Junior Rioli, 2023 second-round pick (tied to Collingwood), 2023 future third-round pick (tied to Fremantle).

To me it looks a steal if Port get JHF and Rioli for pick 8 and a F1 around pick 9-12 and a pile of later picks with some back.  Points aside, they must be laughing!

Mega Trade

I don't mind the trade from North's perspective. For starters JHF never wanted to be there. Second, his on field form in 2022 was rather underwhelming. He had some good games and was overall pretty solid, but his form nowhere near matched the hype he came with. Daicos and Sam Darcy look like far better prospects from the first round. Rachele too IMO. Thirdly, the guy clearly has an attitude problem. It's pretty rare for those sorts to go on and become the very best players in the game. All in all I think he should have LOST value from 12 months ago but they end up with 2, 3 and an additional first round pick. Of course downgrading 1 isn't ideal but picks 2/3 often turn out better anyway and without the scrutiny.

West Coast the big losers here. Lost Rioli and pick 2 for pick 8 and 12? Seems bad. They must have a few good WA talents they want at those picks. 
 

Port absolutely creamed this deal. 

They've got word that those early picks which will be Vic kids, are pretty much flight risks.

Trade down is probably the right thing because they now have army access to a couple of WA boys.

these guys are clowns sometimes, Rankine won't be a free agent as it'll only be 3 years at his club, needs to be 6 to qualify for free agency so he'll just be an ooc player then not a free agent

Yep, turn pick 2 into Ginbey and Busslinger. Not a bad return if it works out that way for them.

A lot going out,  not much coming in other than Grundy

Are we getting anyone else

Time for a clean pair of socks - our dealing is starting to smell. We've lost a couple of real talents, we've cleared a few cobwebs that are overdue and rancid, we've not done a great deal to deepen the waters in which we might otherwise prance. The clock is ticking and we sit back at our peril. I know, patience is a virtue; it's just difficult to wait out of the action so long.

Assuming we went tall forward hunting and flamed out, one benefit might be with these long term contracts to CP5, AB10, and CO13 is the ability to upfront some of what we owe. That will make it easier to target players longer term. Small comfort but still valuable.

I kind of want them to keep their powder dry from here and see what our hand looks like next year and target a King in the North maybe…

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    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.
