bump...

Looking for a Brad Crouch thread to follow this year. The only other thread I can find has been closed
So he's out of contract at the end of this year then?....Might be a good time for him to abandon a sinking ship.

Oh I'd love this guy at Essendon. However I don't think we have the money nor the resources to get him (and no, we're not trading Fantasia Croweaters).

If the Bombers went for Crouch they'd ask for Francis. Think we all know that that won't happen (both sides would think they are losing massively in a straight swap) but it's still 100% the first word out of the Crows list managers mouth if trade discussions were to start.

Yeah, nah, wouldn't do that deal.

Crows need pace. I reckon they'd be asking for fantasia.
They have defenders.
We would need afl approval to trade a pick, so I can't see that happening.
And I'd be surprised if he wanted to go and the crows were looking to let him go

Id do that (Crouch for Francis)

Crows would want a sweetener though

Will be interesting to see if we throw our hat in the ring.

Has been highly rated and monitored closely by Clarko for quite some time now.

Would be great to have him working alongside TOM and if we were to land Coniglio as well then our midfield would surely be the best in the league.

I do feel that we're in greater need of a KPD and KPF though.

If say Francis would be the sweetener on top of something fairly decent.

Don't think Francis is worth a great deal.
Is Francis injured?....Or just can’t get a game at the moment?... hasn’t played in the firsts since round 3 IIRC...

Hardly think adelaide would entertain a straight swap with bcrouch for a bloke that can’t even get a game in the firsts... madness.

Francis is also out of contract at the end of this year and last word from worsfold was that contract negs with Aaron had become a bit of “a game of cat and mouse” and it was looking likely to be put off till later on in the year.. For all we know that means he has said he has told them he wants out again and being uncontracted this year makes it easier...

Another reason Adelaide wouldn’t bother linking any deal with bcrouch with Francis.. the trade price for an uncontracted bloke that can’t get games in the 1st’s isn’t exactly gonna be expensive and would adelaide even want him?..

He was dropped after round 3.

I'd say he's more than likely gone from Essendon, but doubt he's worth a lot. I think a mid to late second round pick is the best they could expect for him.
