Turn it upside down. Players might think twice about nominating a club where it is known that they dicked someone around and the trade fell through.
I don't really buy into this though.

Essendon have a reputation for being hard to deal with and everyone seemed to want to go to them this year. As well as this they completed all of their trades without paying overs.

True, but the kind of player THEY needed didnt.

I think doing it our way means youre more likely to get a look in with the ones you want, rather than the ones that wabt you.

Yeah. I know. I agree really. I’m just working my way into acceptance of the whole thing.

At the end of the day the most high profile player in the trade period nominated us.

Maybe all those blokes managers have good relationships with the bombers, plus they seemed pretty easy to me to deal with over Melk and Pig.

All this love for Dutchy makes me sick. He was rubbish. Seriously. Could not rely on someone more to not show up when it's needed. At least Dawes bust a gut every week.
The problem is Dawes couldnt mark, Holland could. Thats a pretty vital part of being a kpf imo

Wouldn't mind Tom Ruggles as a DFA, god forbid Nev get injured. Liked him at the Cats last season, pretty solid defenders. Or at least as a rookie listed player, he'd be a solid one to have I reckon

Three recycled players???? Jeepers. Good to have you back Neeldy!!!

(FWIW, I would be interested in Hartung or Tom Lamb)
Feel like Tom Lamb too similar to Mckenna, both second round picks who have clear talent but haven't developed well. I'd persist with McKenna tbh.

Stretch>Hartung too and Kent can play wing. But if Goody wants Hartung and thinks he isn't a good fit in our team I'll back him, Hartung looked really good a couple of years ago
