Whitfield & Haynes on the trade table?



Recommended Posts


My god.

Whitfield would be a dream in our side. 

Opposite wing to Langdon or give him a half-back Nick Daicos role.

Probably way out of our thinking/cap but if we landed him and Grundy this year plus hit the draft with a top 8 pick we'd be laughing. And I'd be laughing. All the way to the 2023 flag.

Whitfield was in the top 10 if not top 5 of the league 3 plus years ago. Not anymore.

Signed a 7 year deal at the end of 2019. Would be $800k plus pa.

Salary dumping is beginning to become the norm. $600k would be tempting

From what I've heard Haynes' contract is heavily back-ended.  He's a very good player, but I suspect that GWS won't salary dump otherwise would be well worth a look.

Whitfield, would be a great get and improve our transition with quick and penetrating ball movement.

Buyer just need to be aware on the contract size

What you got for us?

I didn't hear a peep about us being liked to Gunston!

Thanks Jimmy,

Disappointing Gunston decided to go to Brisbane.  Behind the scenes we went hard. Apparently, he had some family or something in Brisbane.  

Unfortunately, I have nothing at the moment.  I have not spoken to anyone from the club for a number of weeks.  However, in saying that I like the way the trade period is unfolding for us.  We seem to be working to a plan. Make no mistake we are working towards much more than just good draft picks from Jackson and getting Grundy.  Just not sure who it is we are targeting outside a contracted KPF.  As far as that player goes, I have no idea how things are going but there has been a small amount of speculation in the press in the last week.

 Cheers!

Sounds like a reference to Georgiades.

To be honest I reckon he's going to be a superstar...we can only dream.

He can take a grab that's for sure, his set shot kicking is deplorable, might need Tracc's help in that department.

Whitfield of 2020 is exactly what we need, but he suffered a serious internal injury in '21 that he stated at the time may take 18 months to recover from. This probably explains his drop in form this year and he may well be back to his brilliant best next year. 

However, he'd be on big $ and his contract still has 5 years to run! We'd want to be confident of his health before committing to yet another long term contract. He turns 29yo next season.

* Sorry Diamond_Jim, have just seen your similar post. Anyway,  caveat emptor.

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
