Any idea how they've managed to stay under the cap? Paid big money for all these guys + Williams and McGovern while re-signing Walsh, Cripps, McKay, Weitering on all bit cash too.
Either would be good for us I thinkSo Tom Browne reckons GWS can only afford to keep one of Hopper or Taranto.
If this is correct, I'd love for us to get Taranto. He would not only provide an instant lift to our midfield, but also have us covered for the long term given his age. Taranto, Mills and Warner for the next 10 years has a nice ring to it.
Obviously cap space is the issue but surely with Buddy's deal ending, a few retirements / delistings and us losing Dawson (?600k / yr offer for 3 years), we could afford to fit TT in. Throw in a first rounder and a tall forward ( they seem a bit short on those), deal done.
Lloyd would be top 5 B&F at North for the next 4 years.. trade him to themLloyd wouldn’t get a game at gws
Right. So GWS get pick 18 for Taranto?Lloyd would be top 5 B&F at North for the next 4 years.. trade him to them
Give GWS p18 (melb pick) for Taranto. Remind them hat we didn't bid on Green a couple of years ago which essentially gave them a top 5 pick.
North get a top 5 player, Swans get spare $$ and decent compo pick.
Swans get Taranto, GWS get p18; Swans and GWS are all square. Taranto gets to hold up the trophy on Grand final day
They paid bugger all for Hewett, because Bigfooty deemed him a B-grade jobber, thus deflating his market value.Any idea how they've managed to stay under the cap?

People were saying this about Sydney after we won the 2012 premiership and then recruited Tippet and then Franklin in the following 2 years.Theres something really suss how certain clubs can afford to keep bringing in players?????
AFL want GWS to win - they have well over 20 1st round picks on their list., they want Carlton to win, Cripps, Walsh, Weitering, McKay + other top draft picks and they can still afford to trade in players on good money every year.
I reckon this is all part of why AFL House has refused an external review for 25 years! Corrupt as f**k
nb. Every billion dollar organisation (and most that are smaller too) have regular (5-10 years) external reviews.
Is he the ex Academy grad?
I agree we a kd but Our mids gets smashed when up against anyone good
Our mid group as a whole is miles of the best
We have 1 a grader atm compared to 3/4 others have
I’d be going after a ready made defender, it’s what we need now we have everything else
Highly unlikely anyone finds a ready made key defender in the MSD.Dusty imo. We have the chips to do it too. I agree on our mid group but they are young. Our defence I worry after the McCartin boys what else is there? Melican is dreadful.
