    Other than from GWS, has there been a player in their 2nd year (or 1st year) that has been traded in the past 3-4 off seasons? I haven't checked myself - would just be surprised to see clubs trading out players that quickly unless it was extreme circumstances.

    How many years was McCarthy at GWS? Or is that different?

    Just saw this but had already posted up a comment. The reality is players do move around now, and the GWS thing is part of the reason.

    Drafted in 2013. You do the maths ;) He was also under contract so it is a fair bit different.

    But seriously, I would be interested if any 2nd year player has been traded out recently.

    edit - Aish is the only one I have found so far not involving GWS (Brisbane > Collingwood at the end of 2015).

    I did say except involving GWS - where they trade players as if they really are trading cards. And even if that wasn't GWS, and the same with Cam, the situation is vastly different to what we are talking about with Balic/Tucker/etc.

    I just think if you are a second year player taken with a 2nd/3rd rounder you'd be dumb to move and interrupt your current development plan and in some ways have to start all over again. Once you come out of that development phase then I think a trade becomes a more realistic option for both your club and yourself.

    Before my dog's hairdresser told the dog 'The deal's already done' talk starts.
    Two Harleys together have got huge amounts of grunt and speed.
    Our track record says both will show loyalty for the time,belief,expertise and loot we've put into them.
    They'll buy into the rewire.
    They're mates and I reckon they'll play together for Freo.

    If he wants to go, could look to package him up for a trade with Collingwood for Brodie Grundy?

    Yep - scroll a few posts up - found him as well ;) So one player in 3 years? I think it's fair to say, it doesn't happy very often and when it does, it's generally not for nothing and with a logical reason. However posters on BF seem to think you just have to want a young player who looks like good potential, pay nothing and instantly it happens. And on the reverse end, another club wants a player of ours, panic panic panic, he's going to leave, oh no! Nek minnut... contract extension and both parties act surprised :oops:

    Yeah just like Gibbs huh?
    He got to go to Adelaide?
    It only happens when it's mutually beneficial to both parties or free agency dictates the result.

    Danny is already driving him to the airport in his Daewoo.

    Trade needs more salsa + Mayo

    2 players. Aish + Freeman. I agree though it only happens in rare occasions. When Freeman left there was a bit of bluster considering he hadn't even played a game.

    Gibbs is contracted for 2 more years. It is a different story if a player is contracted, and a few years at that.

    But it's not beneficial to let him walk to the PSD either, especially after the amount of work we've put into his injuries and rehab.

    Yea I agree. I would consider our first rounder and Balic for Grundy. Probably a long shot trying to convince him considering he's from SA and has been in Melbourne for five years. He's exactly what we are looking for though.

    The moment freo drafted Balic , you are not in favour of him . What he did to deserve this . ( Wrist injury).

    It is Collingwood - have to consider the Mayne factor. Straight swap for Suban? Nah... Maybe they take Suban as a free agent and pay him say $2m over 4 years. We then trade back that 2nd rounder for Grundy. Everyone wins!


    Except the Pies... again

    I think when Buckley left Brisbane was the last time a second year player dictated their destination?
    Nominating a club and going to the pre- season draft is too risky for all parties, won't happen unless the club and player have a major fallout, especially for a young player rated so highly.

    Oh memories...

    Remember that time when we got a 2nd round compo for Mayne and then used it to get Brad Hill? So effectively swapped Chris for Brad. Good times!

    Possibly only trumped by that time we drafted Blakely after West Coast decided to draft Lamb.

    Interesting that Brad Hill and Blakely are locked away playing in our B22, whilst Lamb and Mayne are...?

    What are you talking about? Balic can play and I hope he doesn't leave.
