Well this would be awkward for the AFL and/or those two clubs. At the time of the Adelaide/Carlton deal, Adelaide had already traded their own fifth-rounder to GWS as part of the trade that netted Ian Hill for the Giants. Carlton's 5th rounder was the only 5th rounder the Crows had available to trade.According to the BL list manager, teams couldn't trade a pick back to the club who traded it to them. If Carlton traded the fifth round pick directly to Adelaide in the first place (I can't remember), Adelaide couldn't trade Carlton's pick back to them.
So if the BL list manager is correct, this trade isn't valid.
Edit: Unless the Crows traded the Carlton 5th rounder to GWS. That would make more sense.
Edit 2: Confirmed by Crows Twitter!
