At this point in time I'd rather get Black now if McCarthy is going to be too much. Trial Black for a year w/ Bennell and wait for GWS to lose patience / give up with an uncommitted McCarthy and get him cheaper next year. One year isn't going to make a difference.

I thought it was nonsense. I feel like my braincells dissipate into the aether every time I read a trade hypothetical from a GWS poster.
Taylor was being naughty like usual and used the pregnant girlfiend scenario as an example, and all of a sudden everyone was saying that his girlfriend was pregnant. If you missed some of the early posts , you would swear it was a real story.

It was a nice example of internet chinese whispers.

Soon a lazy journo will jump on that thread late without knowing the history, post it on their twitter, resulting in people quoting the tweet as proof of the rumour in the same thread the rumour came from. Then the cycle of modern media will be complete.

I was beginning to cool on Cam McCarthy until I began to think about our forward line next year without him. All we have is Pav (who we all love but have to accept is well past his best), untried rookies like Tabs who have done nothing to inspire confidence and perhaps someone like Mason Shaw who comes with massive question marks. I think we need him simply because the cupboard is bare without him.

Looks ok to me.

Midfield: Mundy, Barlow, Neale, Hill, D.Pearce, DeBoer, Suban, Mzungu, Weller, Blakeley, Langdon

Midfield could do with some work though.

Whilst theres discussion of McCarthy I wonder if it makes better sense to forget about him if they cant get a reasonable deal done especially giving away next years 1st.

Hogan is two years away and arguably next years the time to do it. If Demons wait til 2017 hes uncontracted and they lose the power. So if we say make do next year without McCarthy.
2016 we drop say to 8th or ninth we have a much better pick plus we have 2017 pick which will probably be better value (minus Sandy\Mundy) and just need to add the steak knives.

It was well before Patton did his knee again, and well before Tom Boyd signed for the dogs. He was way back in the pack.
Perhaps the club indicated that they were more interested in giving game time to players who demonstrate they are committed long term.

Story goes that key GWS supporters were saying the only reason Can would want to go home was for money so I mentioned that GWS had brought Cam's GF into it by saying they wanted to get her over there and I said if she was pregnant it would explain why he was so adamant to get home and she won't want yo move there away from her family.

I've been accidentally right about things before but this one would be a doozey.

How likely do v'all think it is that one of Black or Shaw are wearing purple in the near future? Doesn't excite me but I think likely.

Go hard for Hogan now I reckon (before they pressure him into locking in a longer contract) - don't die wondering...If we are giving up first round picks for a key forward he is the guy - grew up Freo supporter would love to be running round in purple...Make it happen Bondy - 2 first round picks and a player (if required to make it happen)

Um, I think they'd want a bit more than that
