    Have to remember with FA that the picks you get in return are not meant to be 'market value' as such. It is simply some kind of compensation for losing a player. I don't mind this aspect of it, but where the system fails is that not all clubs are equal so some clubs are gain more than they lose. And when you aren't getting equal value back, it means some clubs are constantly going backwards.

    Also, Barrett is an idiot. He dead set hates the Lions and can never report anything good about us without finding some kind of flaw to hit back with.

    It's kinda half way between a refund (great) and trading your games in at EB (total rort).

    And of course the Frawley deal somehow didn't set a precedent of any sort for FA compensation.

    The thing that blows my mind re. NRL is players transferring mid season.

    If squib barrett wants to talk about rorts what we should do if lobbe rumours are true is go to port and say don't bother paying part of salary put that into rocky offer therefore getting us pick 2.I know its a dream but enough is enough time to fight back.

    I wonder if this is happening as we speak (type/read).
    Tom's manager said today that "Over the coming days we'll lodge paperwork with Port"
    They have had 2-3 days to do so, what's the hold up?
    Maybe it's to alter his contract so that we get a band 1 on the condition we take Lobbe and his contract.

    Or is this wishful thinking

    Gotta love Barrett's ability to hit us with a pot shot from anywhere.
    Terry Wallace "Schache looks like he's set to stay."
    Barrett "Yeah, due to a lack of interest."

    ... Surely you can't be such an ass and not be hit by a karma bus at some stage. Feel like he's just going to get decked by a supporter, player, coach or manager one day.

    Wallace list management, do the Lions just give over pick 12 and make sure of getting Cameron.

    Flog Barrett- I think picks 12 and 19 for Cameron and pick 16. You idiot, we'll wait and take him next year and the Crows can keep an unhappy player.

    It's 18 or 19 (which IMO is still overs) or get our of here.

    Certainly doesn't seem right that a player who can't get a game at Port nets pick 30 and we get pick 19 for one of our best.

    The only logical outcome is to roll our PP into Rockliffs compo pick thus producing pick 2.
    Gil was wishing there was a way to help us recover quicker- Well here it is Gilly!!

    With Francis wanting out of Essendon, we may see a change with young players requesting what club... since it is Essendon it is happening to.

    Reckon we get Cameron for 19
    Adelaide send 19 for Francis
    Essendon use 19 for Stringer or Smith

    I don't think anyone would be unhappy with that. Francis was a pick 6 I think,
