#Bluemoura person inside the club has told me that Gold Coast are unlikely to pick up Martin in draft. They just wanted to send a message that they are going to be a hard negotiating team in the future. Not sure if Melbourne are interested in picking him up.
Blues were done over.
Deals were agreed to, then reneged upon and more, much more was sought for both Papley & Martin.
Last night Dodoro was offered pick 9, next years 1st and 2nd by Swans, who were going to seek AFL approval to enable deal to proceed or obtain a future 2nd as part of other deals.
Dodoro has shafted a family member of Essendon royalty who wanted to leave Melbourne for relative anonymity in Sydney.
AFL complicit in the shafting we received by the Gold Coast Suns, told they needed to flex their muscle and harden up.
SOS didn’t fail, at this point he hasn’t delivered the players but he also didn’t overpay.
#BluemourPort Adelaide are pretty keen on Dylan Stephens and are looking to move up the order. We may downgrade our first for their first plus second rounder and get Martin with the second rounder. Melbourne are making us nervous if he goes to the PSD.
Worth a #Bluemour?The apology was from the AFL - not quite Gil but close. Ultimately it means we get Martin for free and keep our picks, but as a reasonable & fair trading partner, it wasn’t our preference. We are always happy to pay a fair price.
They argued a future 2nd and 3rd were useless to them given the concessions they’d received, not bothering to consider that they could be packaged to move up. Truly bizarre behaviour.
Can confirm 5 was on the table and more.
Deal got hijacked by head office at Bomber land as well as some connected people.
My mail was they were happy to let him go for more than 1 reason. Then others got involved in trade meetings inside Bomberland.
Swans not worried as they will get him next year.
Daniher’s are furious.
Paps extremely disappointed but knows it’s not our fault, he will try again.
Martin coming. As has been said GCS lost the plot there for a while.
#BluemourCaro might be on the money this time..
