Trade Rumours 2023

I reckon the odds of McLean coming to us as part of the Grundy trade is a fair chance.  He played 22 games in the ruck and fwd, kicked 21 goals. He won't be playing much with Grundy there.  Only 24.  Him and Gawn would work nicely together

197cm 99kg about to enter his prime.  Swans have a lot of talls

If not him, then one of their tall fwds.  They will have Reid, McDonald and Amartey. Can't really play all three

Or even throw in the unknown Jack Buller. 199cm fwd/ruck. 22yo, done well in the WAFL last year apparently.

McLean recently signed a contract for at least 2 years so he won't be part of any swap or deal.

I wonder if we'd have a look at Ladhams? he's more of a forward ruck and likely falling down the pecking order at the Swans 

Don't  get involved He is trouble. Just when Maxy might be unavailable Ladhams is likely to be out suspended by the Tribunal. He is another Pruess perennially out when he is needed. Not a great player either, if he was any good why did Kenny let him leave Port?

Nibbler is a certainty for top 10 in the b&f.

Should we be looking at Lachie Keefe for short term ruck backup while we look for a long term solution?

Not the worst suggestion either. But more of a reserve Back than a goal kicking ruck resting forward!!

Bit like Tommo I suspect pace not his best asset but is solid in body snd now in mind.

At the moment we are looking at

Grundy to Swans for early second round pick 22 is

Jordon to Swans hopefully for after second round pick 33 is

Mcadam in, I think the pick we get for Jordon does this deal

Harmes still looking, unfortunately for Harmes he is worth more to the club than what we will get in return unless it is a part of a package to get a player in or advance our second round pick.

Then we add in pick swapping that may net up another first round pick.

Pretty big couple of weeks coming up

We will be getting nothing for Jordan. He’s a free agent.

Damo, not sure how much you can read into it.

 

IF ...

a lot of the pre-trade and national draft period talk among rival clubs is to be believed 

 

THEN ...

the Eagles won’t be taking Harley Reid.

What if the reason Footscray want pick 4 is to trade this to WCE for pick 1 and 19 for pick 4 and Naughton.

That will give WCE Curtin and Naughton

Bulldogs Reid and Croft.

If the bulldogs think Naughton will leave as free agent next year, get something this year.  WCE then remove Freo from FA next year and they have cleared a bit of salary cap space to make this happen.

Scary the dogs can really set themselves up for next 10 years with NGA pick before rule was changed, and father son picks, add in Reid as well.

Would not be surprised if we only recruit McAdam and put a full premium on the draft in getting in as much young talent as possible.

Tend to agree.... there's not much else available. (Save for a back up ruck of the Preuss type)

We may even not take up all our list spots if TMac and BBB also retire

I don't think there is such a pick.

It's start of 2nd round or end of 2nd round, which would be about 44-45, after after pp's and matching.

I think we are a chance of start of 2nd round, which could be about 22-23. Probably need good money and few years, already is younger than most FA's and a premiership player, which will help.

We still need a backup ruck and maybe we go to state and country leagues for a player.

Aside from getting a mature aged ruckman, that's the way I see it.

If we continue to bring in mature aged players from other clubs, we'll continue to lose younger talent like Bedford and JJ, because they can't see a pathway into the seniors.

We need some elite junior talent to be pushing the under performing players in the seniors. Our draft hand this year is our opportunity of obtaining elite youngsters.

Five clubs pitched to JJ, so I don't think he would have accepted a nothing contract.

Swans have cap space with Buddy, Hickey and a few others leaving.

I would rather we draft in as many young players as is possible.

Off topic, Sean Campbell won the competition best player second year in a row WRFL second division last night, I think that is 3 out of 4 years.

A ruckman is an absolute must. Would be straight up list management negligence to go in to next year with Max, Schache, Verrall and not a genuine back up ruck.

Key forward should be a must, but I’m wondering if they address it with train on players rather than making a move. Give me the 3 best delisted/state leaguers/overlooked kids and let them battle it out over summer.

The draft has always made sense for mids and runners apart from 1-2 cheap back ups if they fit just to fill the list turnover.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
