Yes I agree , but if he were to request a trade back home I think a late first rounder could get the deal done ?SPP was drafted in the top 20 if I recall so there is no way Port are going to let him go cheaply, so all this talk of wanting him if we can get him for a 2nd or third round pick is surely null and void?
It'd be similar to other clubs wanting us to give Blakely away cheaply...unless something dramatic happens it's highly unlikely.
From what I hear, Joel has a very close relationship with Ross. I don’t think he’ll be going anywhere , and yes he’s one of our most important players now.Any chance Hamling has fallen out with Ross with his best mate Kersten not getting a raw deal? Rumours he had a catch up with our recruitment team but could be complete and utter BS. He is exactly what we want/need
Yeah I was harsh there’s just no way even with the whole Kersten thing. I assume that rumour wasn’t from one of you better ITKs since you guys have a couple of decent onesHaha just asking! Dam that rules him out he is a gun one of my favourites. We got unders but it makes up with the Crozier trade where you guys got unders for what he is doing for us
First rounder and an A grader please!I am not a religious man but can we all bow our heads and pray that Haggers and Young are not full of crap this time and the Saints are actually offering 1.2m a year to Hill coz we are looking at some juicy juicy assets if true.
Water cooler talk from a bloke in the office not from our posters that are ITK. We are just desperate for a player like Joel and will surely go hard for one via trade/FA so its joining the dots as to who the key target is.Yeah I was harsh there’s just no way even with the whole Kersten thing. I assume that rumour wasn’t from one of you better ITKs since you guys have a couple of decent ones
Jackpot if true. Will equate to pick 6 and change. Not really interested in Acres after the weekend’s game.I am not a religious man but can we all bow our heads and pray that Haggers and Young are not full of crap this time and the Saints are actually offering 1.2m a year to Hill coz we are looking at some juicy juicy assets if true.
I mean Duursma would have been far better than Sturt regardless...Now that I think about it, Ed and Bradley better have told the club of their intentions to leave (if that's even true) before the year had started. Duursma would've been perfect as a wing replacement, who went one spot after Sturt.
If we did know, then its surprising that we didn't go for Duursma
You really think the media wouldn't jump on Ryan (in particular) if he was a fremantle player? He'd have been run out of the league.WC have been the kings of players with off field issues from Hunter then Cousins and his cronies thru to Ryan recently. It hasn't affected their on field performances. Culture has meant nothing to WC. They draft to win games not popularity contests.
Hard to argue otherwise at this point. Duursma has played 19 games and averaged almost 20 possessions a game in his first season.I mean Duursma would have been far better than Sturt regardless...
