If Treloar was a FA, would anyone rate the Dogs as the clear winners? His addition to a team whose strength was already their midfield, such that they have quality mids already spending large periods up forward, is overstated.

Someone like Hunter will likely see their output diminish, and they'll be doing well not to lose someone next year.

Players like macrae hunter lipinski liberatore dunkley will lose out. They will have a lot of bench space taken up by midfielders and if they play two rucks they’ll struggle if they lose KP to injury.

Dogs will shift mids to rotate through the flanks, Bont will spend more time forward

If they stumble, it will be due to a lack of genuine spine players, especially support for English
I see Treloar spending time on the outside, wing HHF. Bont forward a bit, as you said. Sold Wallis on playing forward and he did a really nice job so, I see more flexibility in their attacking game via savy team selections.

Cant see how this trade stacks up and the afl should reject this as its only a points boost for Fremantle
56 + 63 for 2021 #65+
Once you start talking about swapping picks in different drafts, the whole points thing goes out the window I reckon.

Adelaide have two late picks they probably won't use this year, so flip them for a single late pick they may use next year.

Agreed but the trade must hve some balance, specially when 1 of the teams have a requirement for points (freo)
Crows will finish bottom 3 and freo will bbe higher next year but the trade looks to favor freo by 300 points

If t was for Freo's 3rd rounder that would make alot more sense and balanced

The reason why we're offloading these picks is because we're not going to have a use for them, but I also think the rule change allowing teams to stockpile points for NGA/FS bids has effectively devalued backend picks this year. A lot of clubs will be looking to trade them to teams needing the points. AFL can't really say much when it's their own doing...

The Afl allowing these picks to be used or the Crows not having a need for them has nothing to do with a trade being reputable and getting the tick from the afl as any other trade needs to. With this trade its clear that freo are gaining points unfairly.

The AFL own rule is being compromised

'The Afl allowing these picks to be used....has nothing to do with a trade being reputable and getting the tick from the AFL'

Huh?

This is entirely the AFL's doing. I think the Crows have gotten in early and managed to get SOMETHING out of those picks.

Dockers will claim they need the points to mat bids, while taking other talent

Crows will claim they don't need the picks and are taking a position in a stronger/more transperant draft

As far as i can see the crows last pick with points attached now are #40
they also have Academy kids that might need points for matching , What happens now if say picks in the 40's & 50's are bid on them ?

they go into deficit for next year ? Still ask the question
