    Combination of the first two. Watch this space as he’ll be the face of their rebuild. I wouldn’t be shocked if captaincy beckons as part of that process.

    I just wonder if there is any rumour that we could lose Sloane next year and not get Gibbs this year, it begs the question should we not have been going after Rocky?

    Shitting me of all this talk of Sloane wanting trade next year.
    No reason for this apart from crap from Vic.
    He is hear and soul of our club and should be captain.

    Sloane is elite, Gibbs is a very good player, and Rocky is a good player. He's so far off Sloane it's not funny. And Port are now paying Rockliff more than we pay Sloane now.

    No.

    Two questions ....

    What? Let's get Rocky in 2017 in case we lose Sloane in 2018? Really?

    Why? Would we target an inside midfielder like Rockliff - to replace Sloane / Gibbs?

    Stop jumping at shadows everyone ... wait until we see the whites of their eyes. Plenty of work to happen before we even have an inkling of what this trade period could end up like.

    I think you are missing the point here.

    All I putting out there is if the Club possibly feels that Sloane may leave and if we are not getting Gibbs, should we be going after Rocky? Its a question.

    Im not saying that Rocky is equivalent to Sloane or even Gibbs for that matter. All I am saying is that in 2019 we may be short on midfield depth and quality.

    Remember last year when we all thought we were a red hot chance of gaining Gibbs and Rockliff?

    What actually happened is we traded in no one and lost Lyons.

    I fully expect something similar this year, though I hope to be proven wrong

    What would that say about Motlop? Adelaide would look the more professional and disciplined of the two sides and he doesn't want part of that. Only twitter talk atm though.

    Thats right.

    Then the same posters say to not jump at shadows.

    FFS Im confident we wont get anything on par of what we lose and any player we draft will be considered "awesome" till in about 2-3 years time when we realise they are a bust.

    Wouldn't not going after Rockliff suggest we are confident of retaining our current inside mids?

    Sloane isn't going anywhere

    Great post.

    Why do so many posters think all midfielders are the same? Our game plan requires one big arsed inside mid and we have one of the best in Matty Crouch. We need either hybrid mids or elite outside mids.

    IMHO Rockliff plays either as an inside mid or a small forward. Not great defensively or on the spread. Gibbs is more flexible as a hybrid mid or could play the Brodie Smith role.

    There are very few elite outside mids and Atkins, The SEED or BNM aren't amongst them (although the RAT could develop further). I'm talking about Kelly, Gaff, the Hills at their best.

    So who are the hybrid mids and outside mids that we could go after?

    I'm guessing he realised his career is hitting rock bottom walking through Alberton.

    Realised he'd probably have to break the law to fit in.
