Thanks for making this an awesome trade period peeps. Will be locking this thread later tonight
You tickets on yourself. Good call I guess.
I also would rather we held our F2 but as per my post above - we compromised on two trades that got posters hot under the popped collars - Logue/Tucker - giving up F3 (with F4 in return) and giving up F2 (44 and 67 in return).
F2 (29-33), F3 (48 - 52) > 40, 58, F4 (57-61)
Brisbane need all of the following picks to match a bid at pick 1 for Ashcroft: 34, 35, 36, 38, 55, 56. Then for a bid later in the first round for Fletcher they will need to trade back into the third round (couple of picks around the 50’s if possible to limit the 2023 deficit) using future third (WB).
In reality the compromised trade with Melbourne cost us Sharp. Now I liked Sharp (not getting him opens up opportunity for Johnson to develop on the Wing in addition to Henry, Worner, NOD, Aish) but the cost being demanded by GCS is just too high for mine.
Has anyone done the math on our 2023 pick values pre and post trade period based on current ladder position?
I have a hypothesis we have significantly improved our points in 23.

Difference being 152 points (pick 60) in 2022, and 227 points (pick 53) in 2023. IMHO that’s worth the ins v outs.
Reading this genuinely makes me completely okay with Freo's trade period considering the ins and I've retracted all melts.
Yes, I agree. The three that you could debate are:Difference being 152 points (pick 60) in 2022, and 227 points (pick 53) in 2023. IMHO that’s worth the ins v outs.
3) F2 and Meek for O'Meara looks like we gave away a contracted Meek for free. How Bizarre (how bizarre).
We also got a F4 from a potential wooden spooner in the deal, and that is about all Meek is worth on the open market. Ruck is the least important position on the ground and the market has well and truly been set for backup rucks like Hickey, Cameron, Pittonet, Witts, etc. Yeah, he was under contract, but if we were going to move him on then I don't think that matters too much in this case. If O'Meara wasn't involved, the best we would have got for Meek is 48.
I view the trade as O'Meara for a F2 (Bulldogs) that will likely be in the 30's, plus Hawthorn are paying a chunk of salary. It's a fairly good trade as long as O'Meara stays on the park.
