    Whilst it's a bummer it's what we all expected

    Maybe have another crack when his contract is up, good luck to Hoges he deserves a turn in fortunes

    If Hogan's a no go then I hope to hear about Taberner re-signing on Monday.

    If Allen was taller I would agree. Medium forwards rarely go inside the top 20 though. I think he may last as long as 30. Still no good to us of course, at least not at this stage.
    Gault and Stanley are just as spudly as Lobbe and Spencer.

    The lisfranc is enough to put me off forever.

    F*** sorry mate, my mistake. I'm not sure why I thought he was still uncontracted. That's good news.

    I just don't think Melbourne would have been keen to move on Watts if there was a remote chance Hogan would request a trade. Hogan and Watts leaving basically kills Melbourne's forward depth.

    I'll take your word on Gault - barely seen him play. As for Stanley don't disagree that he isn't a spud, my point is he is less of a spud than the other two. Don't think we need any of them to be fair.

    Matt Taberner (198cm) and Michael Apeness (200cm) can provide ruck relief. Provided Ape isn't injured. Ape was looking ok last pre-season.

    Sounds like something that soft cock would do! Can’t even kick the club whilst it’s down on his way out. Missed a solid opportunity to screw us over but is too much of a mummy’s boy to even do that! Harley Balic... more like Harley Ballicker!

    Either pick after third round pick or nothing. Most likely nothing.

    We traded our 2016 2nd round pick (22) for pick 35 which we used to draft Balic. We will likely get a pick in the 40's for him.

    Should Lloyd be held accountable for this?

    Accountable as in how? Jail?
    It was a smart move at the time, Balic was highly rated and had dropped in the draft. Who's to know that he'd have homesick/whatever issues and want to go home.
    Should be thanking Lloyd we didn't take Lever.
    The introspection on here is bordering lunacy at times.

    Trade deals to wrap up early:
    Hang onto Taberner;
    Balic and 58 to melbourne for 45 and 63 (under for Freo);
    Crozier and 45 to wb for 26;
    26 to gws for Wilson (unders for gws);
    55 to gc for matera (unders for gc who prob prefer 2018 3rd rd for 2018 4th back);
    Leaves us 5, 40 and 63 and all of 2018 picks.
    Personally I would also take the deal offered by bl poster of 5 for 12 and 18 after Wilson snared if we could make it happen?

    Troy Menzel's a spud though. I'd rather just Daniel > neither Menzel > both Menzels

    Lets hope he hits the ground running for pre-season

    We have to give him an injury free year to see what he is capable of

    I am ok with not getting Jesse until his contract expires. Now we go with pick 5 and next years first rounder.

    For this year we could either score a gun midfielder like Stephenson or Fogarty but I would not be adverse to changing pick 5 into a couple in the 10-20 range and score Naughton and Allen
