I don’t see how that’s relevant to my comment at all, average draft number? Wow that means nothing. Ranking teams based on a players under 18 performance?

But overall I was referring to the Fremantle response to Ross, but this isn’t the board for that
Well Freo has a significantly less talent filled list yet could still win half it's games for the year with a sizable number of players missing injured.

But Ross is the problem..

If you read my comment I’m actually saying that the heat on Ross was unfounded 🤦‍♂️

Not sure if it’s been mentioned yet, but the Saints are offering Blake Acres and a first round pick
I reckon they want to split their first pick and send one off with steak knives. Won’t happen whilst Hill is under contract
💯 Looking to swap pick 6 for two picks between 10-18

They might want to, but not sure other teams will want to split with them. GWS 100% won’t.

Adelaide and GWS probably more a chance to split. GWS need a pick inside 5 so they can get a player ahead of the academy pick. Then Adelaide get a pick around the SA talent worth (Stephens around 10-15)

If it was just saints interested you could have got Hill for mid 1st rd but melb is known to have interest and lesser extent hawks, that drives the price up to a swap of pick6 for Hill...

When has this happened before? Always gets spoken about but it isn't a thing.

You won’t win a flag because you don’t have the cattle
Your skills are bad, because you don’t have the cattle.

Ross has done well to get you the wins you’ve got, the Fremantle supporters and the WA media, just completely overrated every player in a Freo jumper. Just like the WA media does with WCE. It’s always been the way the in WA
Under Bollton Carlton didn't look like they had the talent, although it was obvious they did. Our skills are bad because Ross only rates effort not skill and then when they butcher their opportunities he laments their lack of skill and blames them for not putting in extra hours out of training. We have had 4 years of recruiting so if we supposedly don't have the cattle then the club has stuffed up. If Ross is copping it in the media, it is because of the contempt in which he has treated them in the past and because of the enemies he has made over here because of his boorish and dubious behaviours. He will do ok when we have a very good list, but so could most coaches. It didn't take a million dollars, and 15 years experience for Teague to improve your side, all without having to divide a whole club to get it.

I think it drives up what Hill may earn, and not the trade price.

Hill will be choosing his next club if he goes and not Freo.

Freo only decides if the deals are way to low and says no.

Does the contract size make any difference to the trade demand?

If he had a big offer from the saints and a smaller offer from the dees, for example, does freo decide that they’d be willing to accept less in a trade from the dees? I doubt it.

“Saints have to give us top 5 equivalent as they are paying him s**tloads. But we will only need a top 10 pick from the dees because they are only paying him $700k.”

Contract value frames trade value but it isn't absolute.

If St Kilda offer $1m and pick 6 compared to the Dees $750k and pick 2 then it's still ball park. Freo really just want the best deal for them, how much a club wants to pay Hill beyond 2019 is irrelevant once he's out the door. If Melbourne don't think he is worth pick 2 and are only prepared to part with pick 20 then salary is irrelevant because Freo won't consider the trade.

Blake Acres is a trade negative i.e. including him in the trade is just so the Saints can make cap space for Brad Hill's 1Million dollar salary.

Putting on my Damian Borrett hat:

Pick 6 + Future 1st + Blake Acres = Brad Hill

Maybe some flip flopping of picks but that's how I see the trade machinations working.

Yeh because we are so tight for cap space.
