Would probably only take Rockliff, Trengrove and Duryea out of that list. Possibly Menzel too.

Kelly is still the no 1 target though.

The 2018 list is much bigger and better at this stage.

Very little left now, and apart from Rocky if they were not available as FA's you would not trade for any of them.

Trengove would have to have the Dogs, Dees and Hawks looking at him seriously.

So Kelly is ineligible for free-agency? How does that work out?

Call me crazy, but I think we should seriously look at Motlop.

If we can get him as a FA and only pay him $400-$500k then that's a big steal for mine.

Geelong would likely only get a second rounder as compo for him... We've previously used second rounders on Freeman & Steele.

A second rounder for a bloke with speed to burn and a love of kicking goals.... sign me up.

I'm afraid you're right, TP. We need to pull out a great trade if we're going to get some cream.
I think you're pretty tough, don't I?

Why not put the feelers out at Trengove & Rocky???? They wouldn't cost us any apart from a bit of coin, which we apparently have. So why not?

Ameet 'The Operator' Bains and co would be doing a ton of work behind the scenes right now with managers and players. We wouldn't know much about it though.

Rockliff is a really good player, but is he what we need? He's an inside beast is he not? We already have K Stevens, Dunstan and Steele. Don't we need an outsider or someone that can play both, with a bit of dash?

Stringer, although I have my reservations, looms as an interesting prospect. Richo obviously thinks he can play midfield and I'd agree that he has the attributes to be an explosive midfield gun. However, the question is, does Richo fancy that he can get Stringer focussed and working hard consistently?
