Geez I hope we get Humphrey in the draft, apart from Ashcroft, I think he will have the most impact immediately out of any player in this draft.
Humphreys footskills are shithouse. Cam McKenzie on the other hand is elite by foot. We already have enough players on the list who can't hit a target.

I have a horrible / happy feeling that Tom Mitchell might get involved in a Bowes trade.

Which would make no sense at all.

No knowledge,just a feeling.

Bowes + 7 for Mitchell and future 2nd/3rd.
Hardly helps our salary cap unless Hawthorn chip in $300K+

The Hawks are really struggling to spend 95% of their cap. And they want Mitchell moved on - and would kill for pick #7

I don't know what to think if this happened. Toms got a good 3-4 yrs left.

Geez I dunno.

100% committed player, and would not be a 'last paycheck player' - still got a lot of good footy left.

I dunno
Long, Berry, Blakely and Mitchell.
2 best 22, 1 fringe, I maybe.

I honestly don't know. Increase his CBA and he will get 35 touches every week. Takes a lot of pressure off Rowell and Swallow.

Again,no knowledge,but it kinda fits.

Worth a think.

Bowes on $850,000 - Mitchell on $700,000 but Hawks pay $350,000?

So Tom Mitchell for $350,000 PA.

Sounds better that way.

In a perfect world that would work IF Fiorini (600k) goes to the pies

No offence but this doesn't make sense for any party.

Does Titch want to move interstate?
Hawthorn can get the Bowes deal without involving (and paying for) Titch.
The Suns don't need a small, slow mid who gets 40 touches a match and gains 100 metres. He would be moving from a team where the coach favours younger players to a team where the coach will favour younger players.

Just imo but the game is moving away from players like Titch (or Matt Crouch) who don't move the ball forward quick enough.

I guess if he could play hb he’d probably still be on a list. I think he’s purely inside desperately trying to find a second position

In saying that Freo are loaded at half back (Tucker leaving as well).

My worry is that he was hardly setting the world on fire at WAFL level so have concerns about professionalism / motivation.

U18 WA Captain, good inside, goes hard, average pace, not an elite kick

Sounds like a David swallow back up

Either way he’ll be a back up and he’s already ahead of Constable & Tsitas in my books.

Hope this is not too inflammatory but I reckon that all these Italian / Greek / Jewish kids are mummas boys. From the moment they’re out the door the mummas And nonnas are trying to drag the back home to Melbourne.

I don't know about that but the whisper all year is he's a flight risk.

We should just take Ollie Holland's and be done with it. Then piss Sharp off and have a Holland's on each wing, yes please.

I'm Jewish and I'm the total opposite of that.

That being said minority groups in general tend to stick together and are prone to feeling alone/like an outsider when they have to leave their family bubble.

Case by case. To say all of us are like that is rubbish.

Feel like he doesn't really add much to our midfield tbh. Matt Rowell from Kmart.
