Time for a new thread for the new year.
Wouldve thought one more big bodied mid is required at this stage. One of Hately or RCD would suffice. Think RCD has more xfactor about him and his consistency will pick up in an afl environment. Bonar and RCD together along with Shipley would make quite a strong NEAFL midfield brigade. Will need some more outside run with only Cumming being a half back/winger. Clarke has great use of the ball and could help release another runner from defense and could potentially move up himself - will need to work on his running however. Duursma could also play an inside/outside role. Interesting times ahead.Cal's Phantom has us going with Hately, Collier-Dawkins , Sturt and Briggs
And the Herald Sun has us going with completely different players in Clark and Butters so the Phantom's aren't exactly lining up with each other
Yup, would make sense to do so, could open a tactic for clubs wanting 19 to place a spurious bid and then trade picks, or force us to use the pick if noone else wanted 19 and we didn't want thier deal.. Interesting draft this one in a lot of waysIf a bid comes for Briggs at 19 could see us looking at turning 19 into two later picks
Lobb was never really right last season right last season either until the very end.Interesting with some of the phantoms having the selections heavy with big mids which I don't see as a pressing need for the club and with the selections the club has I think it has an opportunity to pick up 4 different players I see the options as and depending on who is available at the clubs selections
Caldwell/RCD/O'Halloran/Ely Smith (1 of these)
Duursma/Clark/Jones/Butters (My preference is for 2 of these players)
if a bid does come in earlier than #25 for Briggs I could see the club looking to trade that pick out along with #52 for picks with a higher points value although I feel he will be picked after #25
Some of the trade period analysis on the Giants I feel fails to take into account that Scully only played 1/2 game and Settefield not at all this year and although Lobb is a big loss the club certainly got close to above value for him IMO, the biggest loss is Shiel and I am sure the Bombers will get a great 7 years out of him and I can see the 2 teams meeting in the finals in the next few years
Generally, trade analysis is that we need more big bodied mids, even if they're slow (Hateley). I don't see that. We have Hopper, Bonar & Taranto already.Some of the trade period analysis on the Giants I feel fails to take into account

Woow...If true it looks like were selling the farm and hopefully we know what were doing
A boy could dream!Geez who would we be targeting...rozee personally i hope. Must be the reason if we are hoping to pip Port for te Adelaide boy. Would hope we can keep at least one of 9 or 11 though. Maybe 9 and carlton 2019 2nd for 4. Not sure if that would be overs enough for st. Kilda though.
Can understand the saints asking for more (I would too if I were them) but seeing as Shiel only went for 2 first rounders with a 2nd rounder returning, cant fathom a player in the draft with no AFL games being worth more than Shiel in his prime. Even if they project to be an amazing player there are no guarantees. Caruso and Quayle must have a very keen eye on someone higher up though if they really are thinking of the mentioned offer. However seeing as I dont feel either team will want to be bent over with a compromise hard to organise with only picks available, cannot see a trade being done as much as I want Rozee.A boy could dream!
Reckon thats really bending them over tho.
Would love Rozee, i think he could have a real impact at AFL level next year.
Please no.If true it looks like were selling the farm and hopefully we know what were doing
