Mate, when I have given names in the past I get smashed when the deal does not eventuate.  In this case I have sworn to secrecy on the contracted KPF we have targeted since mid-season.

Don’t expect a name, just a few more details rather than the current “the sun will come up tomorrow” prediction. Otherwise, there is no point saying anything at all.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. It's a tough gig being @Grand New Flag

Do you know what the hold up is? Convincing the player, or satisfying the player's club on a trade?

Can we at least get a height range so we can be sure that they are tall?

We may not be done! Apart from likely departure of Weeds we are working hard on a KPF. 

Brace for a possible 6pm surprise!

I wasn't going to pay too much attention to today but i'm genuinely intrigued now. There hasn't been a murmur in the press about us chasing a KPF so looking forward to see what unfolds

One of my good friends was heavily involved with Carlton years back and flicked me a message that Jack Watts had just done a medical with them after about his third season with us.

I scurried so excitingly to demonland to drop the massive news thinking I was the first with a scoop only to be politely correct by the demonland faithful that Mr Watts was indeed having a few frothies on an overseas end of season trip with the lads and I was in fact a goose.  

I ended up giving my mate a call and just got the standard "lol" response which was deserved.

A couple lads I know are working in similar circles now basically in their dream job.  They're always giggling at these rumours and keep their cards very close to their chests.

If they were ever to leak out info about targets/trades, then it would be game over for the career.  So I always struggle to believe people when they're advised of these little scoops about contracted players or potential targets unless it comes from the target or there managers first.

Loose lips sink ships..... and end careers.  Why would you?

Mate let it go. This GNF vindictiveness is getting boorish.

Josh Bruce won't be going anywhere.

His manager has already come out today and said that Bruce will be playing at the doggies next year and may look at even playing as a defender.

There will be NO out of the blue recruitment of key forwards. Schache will join the dees which has been well reported in the media for the past 2 days now.

Which is a disaster. I do not see ANY point given we have Weideman. Couldn't care less that he is a pick 2, he's never delivered at AFL level

Ben King would be an interesting one. The only KPF in contract that I would've expected as gettable.

He signed a 2 year contract earlier this season, contracted to 2024

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    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.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
