What are poeoples thougths on approaching Brisbane for a pick swap?
6 or 8 for 14 and 18?
having 6/8, 14, 18, 19 would be a great hand. Yes we might miss a potential top 8 player, but gives us two solid picks in the teens. The noise is after the first 6 -8 players it’s very much even based on...
Cerra and Lobb for Rich 7,15, 26, 28.
Trade 26,27 to the bulldogs for 17 and draft Motlop with 28. Also trade our F1 to Bris for pick 14.
Freo Erasmus, Amiss, Johnson, Williams, JVR, Motlop
Once Melbournes finals campaign is over, it would be amazing if Luke Jackson comes out with “ I want to return to WA”
I have no idea if he will, but even if he had thoughts about it, he wouldn’t say anything yet as it would distract from Melbournes finals focus. He may see it as a real...
Freo should get on the front foot and get in first to block these pick splits.
Freo and Bris
give: pick 9, 28
get: pick 14, 18
Freo and Rich
give: 2022 1st
get: 2021 pick 17, 26
blocks Carlton splitting picks and if Cerra does go, forces them to include pick 6.
Freo out: 9, 28, 2022 1st...
I understand your concerns, but Fyfe is quite capable as a third tall forward.
We are a young side, especially midfield. Another preseason into Tucker, Brayshaw, Cerra, Serong And Darcy will be super benefical to our team.
i like to think of our structure as:
2 x KPF - Tabs (deep)...
Maybe we know this and want Jackson. What if we gave Melb a nice easy deal for Langdon, to get the Dees to bid on Green at pick 3? The 20% discount on the bid match would eat GWS pick 6. 👍. No way they don’t match it.
Maybe the last year (2020) of his current contract is based on a performance clause? Ie make the finals/top 6 in 2019 to secure the final year option, otherwise the board can remove him. Bell would be all over this.
He could possibly be leveraging the Carlton situation in order to negate that...
26 scoring shots each.
Lobb needs a serious lesson in set shot routine.
1. He stand sideways FFS when he’s directly in front.
2. He has a terrible run up with those JK steps.
3. He doesn’t swing his leg back and then kick through the ball with power.
He did some great marking and rucking...
I was hoping this would be mentioned at some stage if we were undermanned in the backline - just for the melts..lol
But seriously, it’s about a balanced team and winning games. It’s not the end of the world to play Hoges down there for a couple of weeks. My preference would be Cox (U18 AA chb)...
He looked a completely different player. Has worked hard to develop a much better body shape over the last 6 months. He had some serious power and speed off the mark too. Loved the long accurate kicking at goal and the vision and ability to weight his kicks to team mates in a dangerous position...
