    Not the worst whipping boy around here!

    Robinson is a solid role player. Will never be a star but seems to follow the coaches instructions to a tee with no fanfare. He is an elite, albeit one paced runner, has reasonable enough skills and will give his all.

    The only place I can see him going is GC under Dew who would appreciate those assets.
    Tomorrow it may get done once GC are finished with the big stuff.
    Murray & Robbo are just small fry.

    I can't see him going to GC. They picked up Wigg today and if they get Weller over the line tomorrow I think that it would reduce their need. And they have players in the reserves like Brodie and whoever they draft this year they would be looking to get games into.

    Personally can't imagine why you'd want him or it making sense for him. I may be misreading your midfield depth but if you get Gibbs over the line then I fail to see how he improves his chances of getting midfield minutes, he just becomes solid depth at a different club..... I get a sneaky suspicion he's steak knives in some sort of mega trade involving Adelaide and any number of Gold Coast, Geelong, Brisbane, Essendon, the Bulldogs, Fremantle, GWS and Carlton that we're somehow managing to get ourselves dragged into.

    For what it's worth our now two time best and fairest is also a whipping boy here. He is a nothing special player who does his job. I think he plays fairly inside in the NEAFL but has been more outside in the AFL. Adelaide doesn't make much sense to me because I can't see him being a lock in your midfield, he would be better off going to a shitter team.

    Would be Francou wouldn't it? I don't get why Robinson would swap the Swans for Adelaide.

    Robinson for Sloane seems a fair trade.

    26 minutes left and little-to-no chance of this one going anywhere.

    Gold Coast are now done with their main trade of Ablett so he still may be a sneaky chance now if GC are interested.

    So does dan stay for 12 months of NEAFL and get delisted or does he walk to the draft?

    I think he will either a) Be delisted and sign for a VFL/SANFL/etc... club after no interest or b) Be delisted and/or traded for a nominal pick.

    There is a remote possibility he could become a starting 22 player, but, I think that he is a depth player and that is all.

    Horse clearly rates Dan. Gives him every opportunity to make the best 22. I'd be surprised if he doesn't play 3-4 games this season - it's up to him if he wants to stay

    Robinson is our best hope for keeping Foote in the NEAFL.

    Oh well. Request trades don't always work out. If ROK and Jude Bolton can't complete a deal/find a suitor it's no insult.

    Hopefully he keeps plugging away for us.
