Not gonna be jumping for joy if he ends up a Port player, but happy to give him a chance if we do. He's sucked since 2017, but McKenzie sucked for longer than that and we turned him into a player this year, so why not? It's not like he could do much worse than Farrell and Woodcock have done over the past month.

McKenzie cost us barely a list spot

Dodoro will actually try and leverage something out of us for player worth as much as McKenzie was.

We don't need him and he wouldn't start for us, but I'll take him as a restricted FA or a 7th rounder or something. Paying anything of value for him should be completely out of the question.

Nothing wrong with experienced backups. If he stays fit, who knows? Look at McKenzie.

I don't see Essendon letting him go for free though, they'll probably demand Wines and a 2nd or something.

Bit hard on Woodcock there Schultzy. The lad’s stiff to be compared to Farrell.

Farrell & Woodcock are babies do you have to be KPF to warrant any patience around here?

I'm not even sure we have the list space with reduced lists next year. He was worth a punt at the end of last year for a pick around the 40 mark, but this time around adding him means we are forced to de-list someone. To take an example, I'd rather Riley Grundy than Fantasia, and we just de-listed Riley.

But if we get enough retirements after the season to have a spot free somehow then sure, chuck a 5th rounder on the table and let Essendon decide from there.

Also this just shows how stupid Essendon's trading strategy actually is. Last year they could have gotten us to give up pick 31 for him if they had just focused on that and not made ludicrous asks like Sam Powell-Pepper. With that pick 31 they could have grabbed Trent Rivers.

Instead, Trent is going well at Melbourne. Our picks enabled us to get the players we want. Essendon are still stuck with a perennially injured list clogger who is still trying to leave.

Is Fantasia on ridiculous money that Essendon are trying to get off of their books?
Are they prepared to pay part of his salary for the year?

As much as I hate the cows I can't wait for them to utterly destroy Dodoro btw. We handled the drugcheats with kiddie gloves. Fagan and Co will decimate them and call out their idiotic behaviour.
