People's thoughts on Blake , going for a medical at freo, possible worth?
Thanks for assessment. Looking like Hill for 10, future second and Acres?Bit of a tease.
Has looked really good at times but lacks enthusiasm when he's out there IMO.
Probably worth an early third if I'm being realistic.
The only thing that seems limited now is his ability to be consistent. He's actually dropped off his ball winning ability this yearCould replace Blakely as the apparent gun because of size and athleticism who is actually quite limited as a footballer?
Although the talk around Blakely has died down
If the alternative is 10 and a future first, I think St Kilda do better by trading a 2nd and Acres.Thanks for assessment. Looking like Hill for 10, future second and Acres?
I don't think Freo fans can melt over that - Saints have paid slightly overs but they won't regret trading for Brad Hill.
Not a huge ball winner, doesn't kick as much as he should, not a huge goalkicker, not consistent, doesn't get much TOG, is no longer a 'kid' at 24.The only thing that seems limited now is his ability to be consistent. He's actually dropped off his ball winning ability this year
His disposal used to be a bit sloppy but he's cleaned that up and always had plenty of penetration on his kick so he's now one of the guys I don;t mind with ball in hand.
What does it matter what we think?dont let the fake tears from saints supporters fool ya. acres is slow and useless. rather have their Steven pick 58.
we don't want ur scraps saints!
I'd rather do 10 + future first over 10 + future 2nd + Acres every single day of the week.If the alternative is 10 and a future first, I think St Kilda do better by trading a 2nd and Acres.
Dockers could probably do without another 18 year old next year too - 7, 10, Henry this year, Brayshaw and Cerra (plus Dixon, Crowden) a couple of years ago gives them plenty of youth spread out. Whereas from the Acres draft they're left with Pearce, and the drafts directly surrounding it they're left with Blakely (potentially out the door) as Smith, Duffy, Weller and Langdon are all gone. So bringing in a role player in that age range is helpful.
Seems like a beneficial list management strategy for both sides.
Not sure the latter will be the deal though. In any case for either of those deals to work Freo would have to at least give us back their future 3rd/4th because we traded ours already to Port.I'd rather do 10 + future first over 10 + future 2nd + Acres every single day of the week.
