    I once had a racing snail. Took his shell off hoping to make him faster, but it only made him more sluggish.

    Smashbox can’t expect these guys to update if there’s nothing to report.

    Can’t expect them to just make shit up with fanciful imaginary scenarios etc, we’ve got BF posters for that. :D

    That was before Tom Browne reported a potential swap of pick 1 for picks 3 & 6. The noise seems to be loud enough that the proposed swap could take place.

    Don't think any ITK posters will make any comments until after a transaction has happened.

    There was a post a while back from one of the ITK posters saying that this could be a controversial trade period.

    I honestly believe pick 1 is more likely to be traded this year than not. Of course, it all banks of receiving the right offer and making sure the players we want with those picks are available.

    EP was definitive. There’s no reason to question it until he says otherwise. Certainly nothing that Tom Browne reports is worth thinking anything has changed.

    I reckon it was more speculation than reporting.

    Kinda 'heres some vision of draftees at the club with pick 1', I'll use it to get some facetime on the news.

    FWIW the SA boys visited 3 other Victorian clubs this week.....just doing the rounds. Two of those teams have zero chance of getting Lukosius as they are not in the top 5 in the draft.
    Interesting how the media paint the picture that we're interested in them now. Slow news day in the AFL world.

    I think it’s an indication that Carlton is preparing itself for a number of outcomes. You never know what may occur and you have to know your options.

    The board and Lloyd probably asked SOS to explore all options.

    I don’t think SOS would have to be asked

    plow has possibly the potential to be an AA player if he continues to get better and macrae can win the brownlow if he doesnt get injured.

    Tom Browne has been on the money this year with inside information on Carlton.
    • He was first to report that CFC had locked in Setterfield well before the season was over.
    • He was also first to state that Robert Walls would be coming to CFC in some sort of capacity before anything official was announced.
    There has to be a reason for smoke and mirrors surrounding our pick 1. If we had no intention of taking anyone other than Sam Walsh, we would remain quiet and not draw attention to it on the Channel 7 news.

    Both Tom Browne and Mark Ricciuto believe there is a strong chance of a trade, and both would have very good mail. It's definitely a watch this space for mine.

    Yes, our latest rumour does claim that we're taking Walsh and we've already told the family. I personally just find it strange that we would commit so early on, especially since there isn't a unanimous number 1 pick by industry recruiters, as well as the potential to exploit GC, Adelaide and Port in their ambition to claim the top pick.

    I know some on here don't rate Tom Browne as a reporter, but I don't think he would waste his time reporting this story two weeks out from the draft if it had absolutely no legs.

    Slobbo gets away with reporting things legless.
