30 years old and played one game all year. I'd be surprised if offers were high enough to make it worthwhile. There's no Collingwood-esque fire sale going on that has been reported.

Players usually play a straight bat to trade rumours. Wingard seems to be taking two steps down the pitch with a high backlift.
You should go back and read some of the things that Wingard put out publicly in 2018.

It's weird, isn't it?
Hawthorn say they want early draft picks and are willing to trade senior players to get them. We have plenty of salary cap space so we are even willing to pay players if we get good picks.
We assume that teams in the premiership window might be keen to get players, who cost very little salary, in order to help them win a flag. Hawthorn traded first round picks for Burgoyne, Hale, Lake and McEvoy. They all played in multiple premierships. Other clubs might want to be bold enough to seize the moment.
The only offer we get is a straight swap for an inferior player who wants to play for someone else, for one of our players who loves playing for us! Naturally, we say no.
Then somehow we are asking too much!!??
It's a strange world.

Nice rant but no way are clubs giving away 1st rounders for players they will get a year or two out of.

Every player is tradeable for the right price

It's up to other clubs to make us an offer we can't refuse

We are holding all the aces. Make no mistake.

And you can bookmark that.
Leaving your run very late at saving a duller than the usually pretty dull trade week.

Wingard, Mitchell and Gunston all traded tomorrow in one mega trade or GTFO.
