Whitfield & Haynes on the trade table?


Cheap Seats

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.

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 is exactly what we need, Haynes is way too much and we don't need his type

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.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
