Mc Donald's playing WAFL for Perth. I might be bias, but any of the 4 WA boys listed are well worth a look. All getting regular exposure to the big boys in the WAFL and more than holding their own.
With no vfl on this year - we should be getting wafl and SANFL over here in Victoria

Here's how it works for Sydney.

Norths pick 2 to Sydney with an assurance they won't draft Phillips.
Sydneys pick 5 & Papley to North.

If they want a player before Campbell, then the cost is Papley.

Surely we wouldn’t allow it - these dirty campaigners who have cheated their way since they became the AFLs team.

They can’t be trusted - re Phillips but papley and one of the top 5 will be fine.

That's the price they pay.

They lose Papley (who they would lose for less anyway) and they get a top kid and their academy kid in exchange.

They don't play ball, we fu** them over.
Gubby Allan would seriously do that - hope Brady has the same brass balls

Why would Papley want to come to North when he already said no last year? We certainly aren’t selling ourselves as a club atm. But we need to make the swans and the dogs pay FULL price for the academy rort. The swans will trade their first for sure.

No secret we badly need classy and dynamic midfielders.

There's no guarantee we'll finish below the likes of Sydney and Fremantle. I also sense Hawthorn could be in the mix also.

If both Phillips and Hollands go before our first pick, who is the next best midfielder in that mould?

Would he be worthy of our likely top end first pick?

If no, I assume we'd have to give serious consideration to parlaying it.

He didn't say no to north he simply nominated Carlton as they were offering the most money and Carlton were offering the best trade pick. We didn't offer the same money nor had a 1st rder to offer either as had already traded it out

An equally important question is why would Sydney entertain the idea. Giving up a guy who'll make All Australian this year, is still young and easily in the top 3 small forwards in the comp for an unknown quantity in the draft. It would be like us considering giving up Simpkin.

If he isn't happy there I'm sure they wouldn't want to keep him against his own wishes.... I put down his performances this year as the drive to shopping himself so he can return home... syd would be looking at cashing in while they can

I'm intrigued why we never gave him a fulltime gig. The bloke makes deals.

He comes to club in 2018 and we finally prize someone decent out their club in Polec. ie - not a lucky swing at an undervalued player like Waite or Higgins.

He goes to saints and lands pretty much every target pursued including beating us for Howard. Clearly knows what he's doing.

Not sure why we didn't want to hold on to those kind of smarts.

Bit of a nothing article on the AFL website about the compensation Brad Crouch leaving might generate. Brandon Ellis 3m over five years was 2nd round which gives me some hope it would be end Round 1 at best.

But it was at least talking figures of more like 600-700 not the stupid figures of last year being 1m
