The deal was Brown + 28 and our future 4th round pick swaps for 26 and 33.Brown for 26 and 33
26 and 33 for stevo atu and 39.
How does it get done without them?
The trade with Collingwood was Stephenson, Atu and pick 39 and we traded 26, 33 and 70.
We got pick 30 from Geelong for Higgins.
28 + 30 is worth about the same as 26 + 33
Imo it wasn't much of a trade for either party, we were either looking at not getting Atu or not drafting Lazzaro. Melbourne could have just played whatshisname, Weideman, I don't think it would have changed the outcome for them either. Brown played at best a fringe role.
