He’d feel like a right tit right nowMarc McGowan was on SEN acting completely shocked and outraged at how people had jumped to the wrong conclusion from his article.
As if it wasn't purposefully written to lead people to that wrong conclusion for maximum clicks/shares etc.
If he did want to go, that wouldnt be enough for us in my opinion. Hes contracted til the end of 2021 so we would have the upper hand in negotiations. We've got a bit of youth on the list, and i would actually prefer an established player while Hooker and Hurley have still got footy in them. Wines straight swap seems about right. But Raz wants to stay so doesnt matter.Rate Fantasia as a pick between 15 and 20 - Ask for Port's first rounder and ask give them back a second rounder ( we have two ) - Gets us back into the first round of the draft.
I'd be putting that to him now. Port have a lot of suitable and potentially gettable commodities. Wines not as popular as he once was and SPP currently out of favour, would put the feelers out for Duursma as well see if he wants to come back to Victoria, as well as the promising NSW boy Marshall who they've favoured Ladhams over in recent weeks.If he’s going to leave in the future why not trade him now when his stock is high ?
Willem Drew would be the one for me.I'd be putting that to him now. Port have a lot of suitable and potentially gettable commodities.

This draft isn't strong. It’s similar to the Kavanagh draft. Last year's was strongerIn review of the news, both Orazio and the club have played this well. If he wants to go now, awesome, Essendon maybe has a first rounder to play in a very strong draft. If not, we will go around again in 12 months time.
I have no doubt also he will assess where the club and where Port/Adelaide are in two years time. If Essendon are close to a flag, like we are expecting, I would expect him to sign. If we have made no progress, or gone backwards, then he is on the way home.
Personally, my value of trading has changed based on what other clubs have done. If a player wants to move, fine, let’s get the maximum value for him, right away. Don’t pay overs when we can cash in now. I think, in the past, we have held onto players we like for too long. Dean Solomon is a prime example of that.
