what would they get ..what would they take?

Makes one think about luck and brave selection ... the best from that draft looks to be P5 at this stage.
would just a first rounder do it?

Doubt we'd trade him when he's at his lowest value. One of only a few players with actual talent on our list.

I'd give a first rounder. lad needs to lose weight.

Seems pointless to trade him unless he wants out. They wouldn't get enough for him and at 23 he's hardly a complete write-off (though it does look doubtful he'll become as good as expected)

Hawks would probably do that ..and then turn him in to a champ... probably tie up their Fr1's because of the 2 in 4 thing.
we can trade this years & next years 1st rounder, as 2015 picks roll off after this year.

I would be extremely hesitant to offer a first rounder for him. His talent is undeniable but he is no longer a young player that can live off potential and at this point i haven't seen enough to think he is worthy of a first round pick. Melbourne are better off holding and trying to get him to be the player we all expected when he was drafted.

A 73 gamer who has shown glimpse but hasn't been consistent.

Oh my god, write him off, stick a fork in him, he is done!

Potential to be an inside bull. Will start showing his true value once Nathan Jones retires.

then why would he be traded?

Especially since he is the type of player we need
He probably won't be as i said earlier, his value has dropped and it makes sense for the Dees to hold him.

He however does need to start showing a lot more at this stage because he has not at all lived up to his hype yet, no one is saying that he can't make it though.

It only starts to get assessed this year ..but at what time?I think id need to see clarification about the futures but with afl rules anything is possible.

As it yet to be actioned .. do the afl assess at the end of the 2019 draft as say .. Clubs in default get advised .. Geelong , Haw, Swans ..(whoever )... have now failed to have 2 in the last 4 years.. (16.17,18,19 ) and your FR1 is locked.Its difficult to adjudicate that a club is in default till the end of draft with in draft trading ... or do they advise you can not trade your Fr1.. as you have not used a R1 in 16,17,18 ..and if you trade your 19 you will be going into default?

And after that you can still seek to get an exception. Toothless dog in a way

Because other clubs may be interested & think they can get more out of him than currently shown at Melbourne?
I agree. A change of scenery could do him the world of good. It happens. Turned out well for Higgins, Yeo, Adams etc.

You have to remember, a trade isn't always a bad thing. You always get something back, and in this case, it would be pretty significant.

I seeked clarification from the AFL through an AFL Media Personnel & he's said if we trade this years & next we must use 2 in the next two years

people talk about his weight and him having no tank, not enough is made about how horrendous his ball drop is. Its why he is such an inconsistent kick, has a high ball drop which is why he sprays it a lot
