Have we shut up shop? No rumours .... we could be all out before we started.

Off to the draft with 7,8 not such a bad thing. Two elite kicking mids thanks

The AFL is so corrupt.
Pick 19 for Motlop so the Cats can get Ablett.
Sentimental decision.

Agree 100% Con - it is not right. The AFL do what they like - so Motlop is valued the same as Buddy.

What did we get for Dal? Pick 25 or something, IIRC? Motflop better than Dal? Only in the peculiar universe, the AFL inhabits.

Thats exactly what Hawthorn got for losing Franklyn. This is just complete and utter garbage. Motlop is surely only a late 2nd round

It is worth considering the number of highly payed over 25's who have just retired or been delisted. There is a fair chance this has had a significant impact on the top 15% earners. It seems just over 500k plus additional service agreement payments has put Motlop in that category.
At an asking price of 700k Lever would have been the highest paid Crow, so who knows what the threshold for an end of first round pick has become particulary with so many champions leaving the game all at once. Veteran concessions dont count here. Its not the salary cap.

Me thinks it was a way of getting Compensation for Gablett to the Gold Coast.. they will use that pick for him.. The cats just lucky , the AFL has always made things up on the run
And the president said " I did not have sex with that woman"
And our former president said " Football is like golf" 

Due to nothing happening yet this year, I was just wondering who we got in the trade period last year and the year before? Was it Steele, Stevens and Brown (or was he a delisted free agent) and Carlisle the year before?

Yep.
Brown was a FA but not delisted.

Forget those two early picks we need action at the other end.
We have cleared the list to allow 3 picks at the draft but that could be varied by delisting Holmes or promoting Marshall.
Everyone else has been re-signed
But we have 5 picks with points attached
Picks 7 = 1644
Pick 8 =1551
Pick 45 = 347
Pick 59 = 158
Pick 63 = 112

We need action to package those last 3 picks into one
347 + 158 +112 = 617 points between pick 30 & 31.
Say we lose a few points in the deal they still get us a late second round pick if bundled.
Finding someone to do the deal a bit harder but I know Ameet can do it.
The more you know, the more you know you don't know.
When I was a young child, I knew that I knew so much about so much.
Now that I am old and know so much more, I know that I know so much about so little, and so little about so much.

Is it possible to put both Holmes and Pierce on the rookie list and elevate Marshall?

It's exactly like that, ps, except for the fish and chips. Lots of squawking and shrieking, but nothing to offer us desperate seagulls. Come on itk's! This is the time of year when legends are made or lost!

Nothing at this stage, as i have maintained all along, get ready to go to draft with picks 7 and 8.

It is the right strategy.

It sound like we like Haynes or Tomlison, but that GWS will not budge at the trade price that we could offer.

Plus that Mummy being forced out due to injuries will ease their salary cap squeeze making it so GWS does not have to squeeze out an extra player now.
