I like Brodie, but not sure how he gets a game with us. We have Setterfield playing his exact role, and Kennedy in the 2's.

Our midfield is: Cripps (24), Walsh (18), Dow (19), SPS (21), Fisher (21), Setterfield (21) - with Kennedy (22) and Stocker (19) waiting in the wings.

Thats 8 players, 6 of whom were drafted over the past 3 drafts. I'm not sure we have room for a 9th young mid.

What we would like is a gun half forward/ small forward, who can go through the middle (when Cripps or whomever is resting forward).

Ideally Congilio as a F/A, but if that cant be done, Martin would do.
I think Martin will cost us too much in terms of a trade with The Sun's Mal, they would want more (I assume) than The Crows 1st pick this year for him, and that is about all I would want to pay for him.

Already we can see the Chickens coming home to roost for Essendon and Hawthorn by overpaying for Shiel and Wingate.

I can see your point but why would GCS want to weaken their own team with just one first round pick from Carlton , yes without Martin GCS get pick 1 in 2020 but nobody want wooden spoon .

This is part of the reason it's highly unlikely Martin will end up at Carlton, we are not in a position to give up enough decent picks to satisfy The Suns.

Also I think Sexton is your best player currently, vastly underrated player (as is probably Swallow)

Sexton is overated , when hot he is good , but when this gone bad he is invisible . Hall V2 playing in a different position .

It's really down to 'who he nominates' though (like it is every year).

If he nominates Carlton, a 1st and some late change will do for an uncontracted player who hasnt really lived up to his potential.

Still a good player, but a little inconsistent.

I'd consider our future 1st if Adelaides is too high for the Suns by the end of the year, but only if they flicked us a second rounder back this year (we currently dont have ours due to trading it out for Setterfield). Every chance our future 1st is a very good (6ish) pick again.
You're dreaming. A unknown pick for an established quality player. Carlton should be moving uo the ladder in 2020 everything being equal. A second round pick in 2019 as well? More chance Donald Trump wins a popularity contest in Mexico.

A first round pick and a later pick swap is ample for an uncontracted player of his talent that has nominated a club.

Ignoring the hype that was around him as a kid and only taking his form in the AFL since being drafted, pick 10 would be plenty for him. Asking for a second on top would be a little cheeky.
Hey the Freo supporter was the one that suggested the trade.
