    Shiny new thread & let's keep the drivel out of it thanks!




    Rockliff will decide within 24 hours where he’s going to play next year.We are very confident of gaining Kennedy and Smith.We’re keen on Saad but Suns want 1st rounder and if Gibbs decides he wants to head home we want picks and player in exchange and Sully could be in the mix.

    How would Gibbs heading to Adelaide impact Scully and the GWS trade?

    No chance I'm giving up a first for Saad.

    Also sounds like we prefer to keep Gibbs and not trade him. But I still can't see how we're getting both Kennedy and Smith with only our future second in play.

    Price is too high for Saad, especially with other clubs circling, likely wont happen.

    I could imagine Woosha being all over Dodoro to get Saad to Essendon.

    Absolutely fits his current style of footy and is a throwback to his WCE playing days of dashing defenders streaming out of the back half.

    Reading between the lines from Barras.....a 2017 second should get Kennedy and Smith done

    If Gibbs requests a trade we use those picks to add Scully into the deal ?

    I'm leaning that way too. I'd be happy to keep Gibbs, but I just feel the club is posturing at the moment re Gibbs. We are rumoured to be active early in the trade period. This says to me that we will be looking to get Rockliff and Kennedy/Smith deals done early before we get any Gibbs picks in through the door. If the other clubs think we aren't trading Gibbs, they won't hold out for better picks (GWS last year holding out for Gibbs deal with Marchbank/Pickett).
    Once these deals get done, we will pull the trigger on Gibbs and be able to take his pick(s) to the draft. Adelaide owe us after blabbing to the media last year, so they will be under strict instructions to keep quiet.

    You'd hope that the senior guys didn't take it personally, as the same thing would have happened in finals against any flag-worthy side.

    You know the Murphy discussions could simply be that the club recognises the demands a new baby can bring to a young family. Maybe they've asked him if he wants to do it all.

    I can tell you now that there's no way in hell I'd try and skipper an AFL side with a newborn in the house. **** that.

    B70 just mentioned we are confident if getting Kennedy & Smith.. didn't add Rockliff in that group. That's what i took out if it.

    I thought that comment was originally made in relation to a potential Kelly trade. With that off the cards, I wouldn't be surprised if there is no 'monster' deal happening any more.

    Saad for a first rounder? Far too rich for mine and I'd like him at Carlton.

    I reckon Scully would be a fantastic get, honest midfielder works his arse off and runs both ways.

    Wouldn't do it either, but he's still in contract so not surprised GC putting a high price on him.
