    Lol people that think we may get Darling for Fasolo are absolutely dreaming.

    Darling is one of their best players and more importantly is he is a tall key position forward. The rarity of KPF makes them even more valuable.

    Fasolo imo is no where near the value of Darling. Honestly he won't even add much to their already strong forward line.

    He never played amateur footy. They only allowed him to train with south Fremantle, with proviso of no contact. Just ball work.

    I know that. Thought it best to correct it before others here run with it. (As can happen)
    Cheers mate

    So apart from channel 7 running their story (unsubstantiated) has anyone else ran the story that he wants to go home?

    Isn't Fas overseas atm with team mates?

    I think this all might be a beat up.

    Hopefully he stays. Sounds like he is in the right environment to enable him to cope better with his depression. Returning to WA may not be the best thing for him.

    You think that the 50 blokes around him, that clearly support and look out for him over 50hrs a week at work and in his personal time would be a positive for him dealing with his situation.

    The story doesn't seem to be gathering any momentum in the press, with trade scenarios etc...

    No he isn't, he is only 191cm. He is however taller then Fas but despite that they often play similar roles.

    http://www.westcoasteagles.com.au/player-profile/jack-darling

    Pies have used Fasolo as the main target inside 50 akin to a small FF, we have used him as a lead up HF, we have used him as a FP.

    WC use Darling either as a hit up forward inside 50 or as a half forward role. The way they both play is very similar.

    Darling maybe worth more but I wouldn't say massively.

    Or maybe West Coast Eagles are still busy playing football at the moment and are staying mum on list managment plans until the seaosn is over.

    If your definition of "beat up" is any rumour in the history of everything that didnt eventuate then maybe youre right.

    I suspect the thought of going home to WA has at least crossed his mind.

    Darling is 191cms, the same height as Pendles. Hardly KPF height. Darling is a mid sized forward, just appears bigger.

    Agree. Fasolo plus a 3rd or 4th rnd pick would be a fair trade.

    Darling is a WA boy in his prime just turned 25, how is he in the conversation? Why would he come and why would they let him come?
