Now I know it's early for this and this one doesn't even involve our club but I just thought I'd post this as it's a pretty big rumor. Filth supporter mate of mine is the nephew of a current filth board member and he texted me this rumour this morning which is pretty big if true. Collingwood & GWS allegedly already had early discussions about the following trade at seasons end" Collingwood trade Swan, O'Brien & their 1st round draft pick to GWS. GWS trade Patton, Adams & a third round pick to Collingwood The theory behind this being that the money Collingwood save on Swan & O'Brien (mainly Swan) they can use to match any offers for Thomas as a free agent. GWS by trading Patton would use pick 1 on Boyd giving them a forward line next year of Cameron, Franklin (who they're confident of getting) and Boyd as the 3rd tall/ruck. My mate doesn't normally give away to much, so not sure if he was out on the sauce celebrating the win last night, but would be a huge trade if it happened. I know Buckley was apparently a big fan of Adams when he coached or mentored him at junior level or whatever relationship they had?
