    Downgrad pick 5 for Wilson and GWS first pick

    We get Wilson = certified gun
    Plus a late first round pick

    Or keep 5 and hope it turns out to be a gun.

    Last year GWS had tunnel vision for Taranto, if the same can be said of Brander then we might be in play.

    They may value someone in the top 5 but I doubt it is him. Their KPP stocks are very good and none are old (bar Mummy). I know there is the academy link but nothing beyond that IMO.

    I don't think so. The WAFL Budget has him listed as coming from Melville.

    Weren't GWS after McGrath the whole way but then he became the number 1 pick about a week from the draft

    My own opinion of that is McGrath was in contention for #1 and when GWS made it known they wanted up the order the easy journalist solution was to put one and one together.

    The noise around Taranto didn't pick up until very, very late.

    Well they don't actually have a first round pick. If they do get one in, around 10, then OK. Ideally one of the Saints picks.

    I'm seeing reports that Freo is in discussions for a potential 3 way with Adelaide and Melbourne that might see us in the running for Hogan. Allegedly, it would see Lever go to Melbourne, Hogan to Freo and pick 5 to Adelaide. Further articles this morning that Adelaide have offered Lever a low end deal and he's not interested.

    Personally I don't see that deal happening as Adelaide have indicated they want 2 first rounders for Lever (yet they are offering a low deal apparently) and I can't see Melbourne releasing Hogan for less than 2 first rounders. That said, it seems that Lever definitely wants to go back to Victoria and Hogan is concerned for his mother after his father passed away. I'd trade pick 5 for Hogan in a heartbeat and a player but I'd want to keep Tabs as our second tall.

    They say if it seems too good to be true it probably is but what do people think of our chances of getting Hogan in purple?

    These rumours are completely unsubstantiated. There is not a single bit of real evidence that suggests Hogan is wanting out.

    Yeah I haven't seen any real evidence of this from what I would call a credible source but its been mentioned a few times in different places.

    Like you, I'm very skeptical and would prefer a reliable source before getting too excited

    signing a 2 year extension whilst still in contract and knowing the situation that was coming up for him is a pretty fair sign tbh

    Not really,AFL history is full of players who signed extensions and then wanted out. We have one sitting in our forward half at the minute.;)

    He knew part of the situation. He didn't know he'd also get testicular cancer...

    That's a slight exaggeration, if Josh Schache goes this year he'd be around the 3rd or 4th person ever.

    The Melb, Adelaide, pick 5 rumour has come from our board, tossed about other boards and then back here where it's now apparently a legit rumour.

    No amount of laundering would get the filth out of a Hagdorn rumour.

    Macca signed it 4 months into his first contract. Locked in so he actually had a chance at AFL, wasnt a sure thing like hogan last season.

    Jesse weighed up all his families problems and took time to sign up when he didn't even have too yet.

    Just think its very very unlikely he requests a trade.

    Declan Mountford still unsigned. Can't say I have seen much of him but the North board seem to like him.

    20yrs old, decent skills, good speed. Had 2 preseasons now and had a handful of AFL games. I think he would be the best value we could get for Balic.

    That's a new definition for spud shed!

    Matera obviously has been linked to us. I've said Schoenfeld a few times.
    Started following Mountford and he's handy for sure.

    The rest are battlers and we have many of those.
