I don't think Martin and Papley are mutually exclusive.* Carlton would have a set trade value and may not want to pay more and if Papley does come then Martin is not really a must have player
Its going to be an interesting trade period and not sure if Tony Cochrane is still pulling the strings but if he is it will also be a very colourful period
They are different players and will play different roles in our 22.
People lauded the fact that Essendon were able to secure Smith, Saad and Stringer in the one off-season. I'm not sure what makes this situation so much more complex?
Once players (particuarly out of contract players such as in Martin's case) nominate - it tends to happen.
