It's been fairly widely reported that Brad is looking for 5 years from the Crows which would make him a one club player. Given his injury issues you can't blame him. The Crows have in turn publicly stated that this will be discussed with the new coach once appointed. The new coach won't be appointed until next week, with maybe a day or two left in the trade period.I think giving up a top 10 pick + a mid second round pick for Crouch is overs but that's certainly better than some of the suggested trades which have involved pick 1 or 2 (and in some ridiculous cases, both of those picks). What you've suggested is essentially the exact same trade that was done for Patrick Dangerfield when Geelong sent picks 9 and 28 your way in exchange for Danger (I feel pick 50 and Dean Gore cancel each other out in that trade). Crouch now isn't worth the same as Dangerfield back then and I think we can all agree on that.
This is why I think pick 9 alone would be a nice way of both clubs compromising but I'm not sure we're going to get pick 9 from Carlton as they seem to have other ideas with the Papley trade. Anyway, we should find out more tomorrow when the trade period officially opens!
