    Things should start heating up from tomorrow onwards!

    Players outside the finals would of had a good break by now to start thinking about their futures...

    No dwarves set on fire etc

    Slightly disappointed

    Hey man. Loving your work on the boards. Just wondering if you've had enough time to speak to your 'contacts' and move beyond trolling? Not sure how you missed my previous question but you're obviously a busy man. Thank goodness for the snipping tool. xx

    Knowing our luck at the trade table we'll probably get Midnight at the Lost and Found or Bat out of Hell 3.

    My thinking is that we have to go all in and try to win a flag(s) before Eddie, Tex, Sloane and Talia pass their prime. Add to that the supporting cast of Lynch and JJ who are of similar age.

    What this means is we have to trade for best 22 players and not picks. Even if this means missing out on the super draft.

    We should be putting up our 2017 1st and 2018 1st on the table. If CC really does have family issues and wants to go home then throw in a 2nd to get Ports pick 14 and put that on the table. If Lever goes, then we should be angling for 2 x 1sts and those also go straight to player trading.

    Potentially this gives a trading war chest of 5 1st round picks. Of course having picks doesnt equate to players wanting to join us and it doesnt mean we have the salary cap space. Most likely we can only afford 1 player, maybe 2. So of course what ever we cant use we take to the draft, preferably 2018.

    My order of preferences are as follows:
    1. Kelly (3 firsts - unlikely)
    2. Petracca (Lever + 2017 1st - we can ask?)
    3. Rockcliff (free or one of the Lever 1sts)
    4. JGov (2 x Lever 1sts - they might consider right now)
    5. Orazio (our 2017 and 2018 1sts OR the 2x Lever 1sts or just swap for Lever)
    6. Gaff (our 2017 and 2018 1sts - again we can ask)
    7. Gibbs (ideally just our 2017 1st, but I would throw in a 2nd if we cant hit any other targets and he is all we can get).
    8. Puopulo (our 2017 1st with Hawks paying some of his salary. I know he is 29 but he gives 1 or 2 years of defensive pressure we would lack if CC left).

    Is this a joke?

    Puopolo for a first? Orazio for two?

    They're probably not even making our side. You overrate Orazio enormously.

    Dont want Lever to go. But if he does then I want Orazio. He is an absolute gun and he is from SA. He is contracted so we have to make a big offer for Essendon to even consider trading him. I have just proposed what I thibk would turn their heads. I doubt that would even be enough. Big difference between an uncontracted player that is leaving anyway and convincing a club to let go of a contracted future star.

    Not a joke. If Cameron leaves then I think these are two SA players that would fit into our structure. I dont think I over-rate Orazio at all. He is a kid with electric pace and knows how to kick a goal. Has kicked 67 goals in 38 games in his last 2 seasons and is still 21.

    Poppy is more of a long shot, may be on the decline. But we only need 2 or 3 seasons from him, much like Gibbs. I am only talking about if Cameron leaves. No point going to the draft and getting a player that is 3 or 4 seasons away from having 50 games into him. By that time Eddie will be finished and Sloane, Talia and Tex on the decline if not finished as well.

    Orazio is a superb player, really took the next step this year.

    Future star?

    He's fine. Had maybe eight to ten really good games, and maybe double that in shocking ones.

    Hopefully, the last couple of months is what his form will be going forward and not just a false dawn. I don't think he wins enough of his own ball to be a top midfielder and I don't think he's as footy smart as he'd need to be to be a top small forward. But I could be wrong, as he finds space well and had a good last half dozen games.

    Orazio is in our best 22 easily, but will cost too much to extract from Essendon.

    Kelly, Petracca, McGovern, Gaff are not going to be available.

    Rockliff is free, or he stays at Brisbane.

    That leaves Gibbs to trade a first round for, which is about right.

    Someone else might pop up, but from your list that's about it.

    Sorry about the trolling, yeh I am busy it's that time of year

    I have no new rumours as yet but that could change

    As I stated earlier that clearly rocky and Gibbs will be options but the crows will only pay so much! From what I have heard there will be a deadline date as we won't put all our eggs into one basket last year

    I will try elaborate on more if I hear them just been a stale week to be honest

    Most players have been on a break
