Merrett would be awesome. Hopefully Essendon come bottom so it wouldn't require a trade.

Hewett and Dumont as unrestricted free agents might be options, but let's start with Merrett!

Merrett would be amazing. He is RFA so Essendon get a chance to match unless we structure the deal so they cant fit him into the cap.

Offer a good deal to Merrett and let Essendon take a compo pick.
Send our 1st to the Suns for Luko.
Take Jase as Father-son.
I'd be pretty happy.

Merrett would fit in perfectly I reckon. On the Merrett thread I've been shot down because we never get non Sa big names nah.

We have 1 f/s in Jace.

First round pick and then fourth round.

Trading in will be problematic.

Merrett is a free agent and we have been getting the treasure chest ready ;)

We have never been afraid to use future picks and you never know who might be traded.

We also picked up future picks in draft trading.

We will definitely offload someone at the end of the year. Someone is going to be pushed out of the team for sure.

We should be able to get 2 first round talents (Jace + 1st pick) and dip into the very strong free agent pool.

Getting a little excited seeing C4 mention Merrett... But it's a long season anything could happen.... But fu** he would be great for us.

We couldn't afford what Lukosius would be worth as a developing tall forward prospect and we shouldn't pay what GC would want for the quarterback-style player they are turning him into.

Merrett kind of reminds me of Rockliff in that he isn't particularly quick but works hard to find space, accumulates the ball and will pick options that are achievable with his disposal ability. He will cop a bit from people saying he plays soft but he is just a good outside player, something we need to balance the midfield. He'll attack the ball and player when he needs to. Not sure how him returning to the leadership group affects the prospect of him leaving but hopefully we've put the work in to convince him.

Merrett isn't slow and has more of an outside game than Rockliff, uses the ball better too. I think he'd be a big upgrade.

My concern would be getting him away from family his mum has MS I think.
It didn't stop his bro leaving to play in the WAFL so fingers crossed.[/QUOTE]

Not slow, not quick. Agree about being outside which I did mention. I remember CD rating him below average in terms of his kicking but he seems to pick targets and execute within his ability.

He'd be a big upgrade for sure, especially (but not solely) considering we lack his type.

I read that kozzie Pickett has been in South Australia for the last couple of weeks rather than in Victoria training with Melbourne. You would think Port would be keeping close tabs on any situation that exists. Out of his first contract at the end of this year.

Edit. Close family bereavement. Hope he is okay and gets back to playing some good football with Melbourne this year.

Did he sign an extension? I thought he did if not would we trade our first? I would.
