Lots to play out yet. We are quite confident of Martin joining us. He still needs to explore other offers but we are well placed and think he will be a good addition to the team.

Still exploring Papley but will be difficult.

Wines unlikely but we have made an approach.

Lots happening in background.

Teague wants Betts, sos isn't as keen. Compromise is basically that sos will get him if it's cheap enough (cap and trade wise) and if he can't get other targets over the line.

Eddie has said he'd be happy to take less money to get back to the blues compared to his current contract/gcs offer. Although that's with a bit of wink wink knowing the club will look after him after retirement.

Personally think we are more likely to land papley and Martin in which case it would be no Betts
Cameron will basically be a free hit

News form Paddington Sydney!!

The people you bump into in the strangest places!!

Sydney all over Daniher( no surprises), they need us to do the deal, SOS will hold strong on this one I’m hearing because he wants next years 1st for someone else...
Betts can’t get out of Adelaide quick enough...
AFL screwed us with Cogs, he was out the door...

Ellis camp started demanding more money late in the piece (after it became apparent that we wouldn't get cogs), that's why we dropped interest. There is a chance that we will take another look now but SOS isn't happy that what was basically a hand shake deal tried to get changed at the last minute due to the perception we had more money to spend. Really a matter of finding out how much Ellis had to do with that and how much was his management team.

Things are looking good re papley in that it looks increasing more likely Essendon will be willing to deal with Swans for Daniher. That being said I can't see that deal being done early so the pressure will be on SOS to get other deals done, while still keeping enough assets for Papley.

interesting little gossie snippet for yas.
a new poster on another forum, but, but methinks possibly an old hand IKN wise.
RE: Eddie Betts.
The decision has already been made.
when asked if 'decision' was for or against, the response was,

A decision and a trade are two different set of events.
