  1. When you look at the business we've done over the past few years: - Hogan out for May which is turning out to be a huge plus - Langdon one of the best pickups in the comp this year for a second rounder - Benny Brown basically for Preuss - This year's 1st round lucky dip draft for Kozzy - Likely 200+ gamer for pick 50-something (Rivers) - Burgo in our fitness dept (worth whatever we paid) People often lament on the Lever deal, but I reckon we've come out well and truly in front. Now we just need to put the pieces together.

  3. Players Traded Out: Hannan, Preuss Players Traded In: Brown Draft picks: 2020: '@ Start: 23, 47, 62, 63, 89 '@ End: 18, 19, 28, 50, 89 2021: '@ Start: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th '@ End: 2nd (Tied to Brisbane), 3rd (Tied to WBD), 4th (Tied to North). I wouldn't be surprised to see the WBD slide and North to not improve much so these two picks might be an upgrade on what would have been our 'natural' 2021 picks.

  7. The net trade of Preuss for Ben Brown is the most outrageous piece of swindling since that Canadian bloke traded a paperclip for a house.

  8. So unless you're upset with sliding back two spots from 26 to 28, we'll get Brown for a third round pick (31 or 33). Sounds good to me.

  9. Yeah for sure, just a coleman medalist who has kicked nearly 200 goals in the last 4 years. and getting him for a 2nd round pick. horrible off season.

  10. Say what you like about how crap we are on field, I think off field we are one of the best clubs at getting trades done and taking full advantage of the system. We are very clever at trading for picks and once a player makes his intentions clear we always get the trades done with minimal fuss. I believe clubs really like to work with us, and that also helps enormously as we are not in the business of screwing everyone over.

  11. So in effect, Brown for Preuss. I think on the face of it that's a fantastic result.

  12. I have to agree that we did very well this trade period. I think we managed to do almost all that we wanted to do except for moving a couple of players on. I do not mind that we have still got TMac on the list. he cannot be a bad as he was last season and he can serve as back up forward and in the ruck. Expect us to upgrade Lockhart, take a DFA and Look to trade further up the draft. My big take away from this trade period is that clubs need to invest much more in list management and contract structures or face a Pies future. I like the way Josh did his work.

  13. Sounds like Geelong will give up their three 1st round picks and get a future 2nd back for Cameron. A case of Free Agency not going to script! Geelong were committed. GWS knew it. Good on GWS for sticking to their guns. It means Geelong don't get 3 potentially top talents. Messes with their list management plans and age profile. Its a good outcome for the rest of us.

  14. Remind me again. Why were the club trying to push Mahoney out the door? I'm not sure how he goes the other 51 weeks of the year but his work during trade week has been faultless.

  15. Quite happy for T Mac to remain at our club. If he can shed the kgs, then I think he still has plenty to offer. Personally, I don't get the benifit of us paying several hundred grand a year for someone else to be getting a solid mature player, while we'd still be paying an additional few hundred grand for any sort of backup worth having. T Mac's versatility is a big plus he has going for him IMHO. Can do a respectable job up forward, down back or in the ruck. If Max gets injured, I don't want us to have to be in a position of flogging the guts out of Jackson if his body isn't

He said something like and I paraphrasing: -we want our list to get better and now we have 2 first round picks -getting rid of the 3 players was NOT related to salary cap -Trelor move was instigated when his Mrs go a job in qld otherwise it wouldn’t have been brought up -Stephenson was keen to get to the Roos Question asked -Why are u subsidising ur players to go to other clubs?

  21. I wonder... I reckon this might be a 'thank you' from North for the swapping of first round picks last year. This is what happens when you show you are willing to give a little to get a little. Other clubs should take note

  22. Just watched the Ben Brown highlights on the official website. Fair dinkum, we have just landed an absolute belter here. Possibly better than Jeremy Cameron. I was a huge fan of the Steven May trade, but this could be even better. We’re top 4 next year. No excuses. I’m in a good mood right now.

  23. I'm hearing he's keen to stay. Settled in really well with the group. Both WA clubs have sounded him out, but it's believed he will stay. Smart move to not extend at this stage

  26. I think we're a possibility to get into the top 10 with our picks. Turning more of our lower picks into fewer picks of similar value allows us to trade with teams that have very high picks and not that many available list spots. This is especially the case with list sizes reducing. For instance, you can't throw a million 4th rounders at the Dogs because they have only had 5 open list spots before the list reductions. That means that they only have 2 empty spots, effectively, so we can't give them more picks than they can use in the draft. For example (hypothetically), they may have 3 lis

  27. Essentially we upgraded 26 to 25, 31 to 28, and then got BB & future 4th for 33 & 43. That's well played 👏👏

  28. Ahead of the curve with the points system. Ahead of the curve with the future pick trading. And now I reckon he might be ahead of the curve with the lower draft pick limit... Wait and see I guess.

  30. Per The Age: https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/afl-trade-period-deadline-day-all-the-trades-and-all-the-drama-on-deadline-day-20201112-p56dvm.html North Melbourne and Melbourne are close to a deal to send Ben Brown to the Demons for an exchange of a suite of picks. The deal, which is agreed in principal, cannot be lodged until later today after an AFL briefing. The deal will centre on North giving up Brown and pick 28 and receive Melbourne’s pick 26 and either pick 31 or 33. The clubs will also swap future late round picks.

  34. Think this has been really well handled by the club (in comparison to others with the same problem). Tmac now knows he won’t get a similar contract elsewhere. I reckon he will bust a gut to stay relevant and compete for a spot on the team. Think his time trials will be very interesting this year. if he does play meaningful minutes well (perhaps as a backup), I wouldn’t be surprised if he and club renegotiate at the end of next year - perhaps replacing the final year of this contract with a new longer deal (2 years) at much lower coin per year - or he finds a new home where we wont ha

  35. Not that it matters much but he also seems like a ripper fella off the field. It takes a very likeable character for me to still like them once they pull on a Norf jumper. Very happy he’s now a Demon.

  37. It's been covered and I don't think it's perplexing at all. Smith was a free agent. Phillips will cost draft picks. So, whilst we were interested in a winger if he could come without a cost, we're less interested in spending for one (bearing in mind Phillips is on decent coin and, whilst good, isn't amazing). That could well be because we've got an overarching strategy to try to get higher up the draft.
