After watching yesterday's AFL Academy lads vs Collingwood's VFL team game Oliver Holland's is firming as the player for us in my humble opinion.
Ticks just about every box good size, good pace, good composure, great all round skills, high end footy smarts and definitely an inside/outside midfielder.
Sounds ideal

We will have pick 4 in the MSD.
Given the state of our list, I think it would be incompetent to pass.
Sloane can go on the long term injury list.

Soft spot for Brisbane
You mean what has he done right? come on…he has been the clubs head of list management and strategy for 7 years now and look at the state of the list; hamish and him work together and they both should be held accountable. He got bent over by OBrien and Sloane with 4 and 5 year extensions, we’ve lost star players that WE developed on every line, his position is untenable.
So - it's the Dawson trade you don't like?

Was it the pick swaps where we constantly increased our draft position?

The vast majority of trades done by Reid have been positive. To be pissy that he gave four year extensions to B&F winners is incredibly naive.

I will say it again - Casey Voss should be our number 1 focus for the mid-season draft. We need a backman who actually can intercept and has strong kicking skills...and basically who would release Dawson to play where he is suited...on the wing. Perfect replacement for Brown...
Don't we have a stack of smaller defenders? There's all sorts of players we could play instead of Brown if we chose.

How will you make the contracts work at the end of the year? It will be another contracted player for next year and we barely have any available spots as it is.

We should look for a big bodied KPD that we can pick up as cover for Butts for the rest of this season in case he gets injured. We saw on the weekend how much we struggled against the big key forwards when he wasn't available. We have obviously decided that Mcasey and Worrell aren't up to it, and we have seen how bad Frampton is in that position. But we can't go in to a game again with such an undersized defence.

Can't we delist them end of year if needed?
Otherwise it's a rookie spot, not a main list spot.
I would expect some of our rookies to get upgrade end of year.

Be great to get a 2nd pick in top 13-14

I know I say it every year and it’s dependant on what you give up , but we urgently need quality
Sounds good, but will pick 13 or 14 get us the quality we need or just more congestion for spots?

If we can trade it for something in the 5-10, I'd be much happier, even if we need to drop down later in the draft.

Theo tonight said we are eyeing off Brett tuner from the bays in the mid season draft . He must’ve got confused the other night .

Turner is 25 yo 185cm. Averages 24 disposals

Better only be a 6 month gig.

Strange we're not looking at Josh Carmichael if we're going local. Younger and bigger at 189cm and 88kg and similarly another midfielder/forward.

So we are trying to win the SANFL and done a Port Power here or it's a "smoke" screen.

LFC,
Has there been any talk of changing if list sizes to pre covid numbers? Seems odd they haven't done it but allowed clubs to have top up lists... hopefully they increase squad size at the end of the year. Really disadvantages us at the moment compared to what other clubs had to work with pre covid to get as much young talent on the list as possible

Here is a video of him . Has that nuggety style of play like Pedler . We dont need anymore players under 182cms .

Especially without pace, and if he's 25 already, anyone that age would need to be in our top 5 players to be drafted/traded in.
