Interesting to see the pittard port relationship seemed to be on the rocks. Port saying he was down the pecking order in his exit interview.
He’s filling a need - to what quality he does that is a wait-and-see. Hopefully a move back home to Melbourne is the change he needs to be happy about his footy again.
He’s effectively replacing Clarke who we playing out of position getting him to run out of defence.
Should strengthen the squad Jasper - can’t see to much going wrong with it

North fans never reveal their sources.
True, I've asked this question to all who've said it and they've never shown me a source. Only one had answered and they heard it once from trade radio, which is strange because it's not kind of thing they'd mention once and never speak about it again or ask Ports list manager when he was on there.

Wonder if Snake Baker had asked his amazing insider buddy.

I can sorta understand why they did it. On paper it looks good but if you analyse Norths list and reaslise most of there talent that actually wins them games are the wrong side of 30....they add two more older running types.

They should have gone to the draft and picked elite runners that would grow with there other kids.
You mean TT and Bailey Scott, we'll be fine champ.
Lmaoo
A kid rated top 10 and another rated top 25 in the draft
On top of LDU and Ahern who played a handful of games and will play more

Don’t think there has ever been such a swift take down of a troll

You know you could have drafted Thomas and Scott without trading for Polec and Pittard, right?

I mean with points bidding trading out pick 11 isn't really trading out pick 11, but still. You made a conscious decision to bring in older, experienced players.

$1.2m over two is a massive salary dump for Port. Helped Kangas get that third rounder though.
Except he's on 400k a year and port are paying 200k of that. Not the dump they were after. According to tredrea Port will struggle to pay the min cap so that's why they are paying some of his wage. North made off like bandits.

So Port don't have any salary problems like anyone thought? **** Pitard sounds like paying doesn't matter, rather him gone so Ken can't select him.

Hmmm interesting Warchest anyone? Can't wait for next years free agency now Boak, Ryder and R. Gray ooc also Chad may leave this year. We'll legit have more space then North, May if he stays or Coniliglio as a free agent heck we could make a play for Kelly. If we're struggling to hit the salary floor now imagine Port next year.

It's what Tredrea said so cool your jets. No different to Cornes alluding to Polec costing 850k when it was confirmed today to be only 650k. Quite the difference.

Weird that Port would do this deal if they're still fitting part of Pittard's salary. Would've made a lot more sense if it was a full salary dump.

Well everyone from North seems to run with the idea we're paying Jasper. So it's one or the other don't stick to the story to make yourself sound better then ignore the other side of it. You've been harping on all day about it.

Yeah, but now we have all 4.
I mean with points bidding trading out pick 11 isn't really trading out pick 11, but still. You made a conscious decision to bring in older, experienced players.
We also made a conscious decision to bring in young 18 year olds, Thomas and Scott. Plus whichever other kids we draft.

Average age of 26y109d in Rd 23 with total games played of 2531.

OUT: Waite (35, 244 games) + whoever
IN: Polec (26, 106), Pittard (27, 126), Hall (28, 103), Tyson (25, 107), Thomas & Scott (18/19, 0 each)

It's an interesting approach. When you are starting the season with 12-14 players with 100+ games played and a team profile of roughly average age 27/total games played 2500-3000 it would suggest you think you are contending.
Yeah it is quite an interesting age profile when looking at that round 23 team with only 4 players under 23. Ahern , Clarke, Symkin and Turner.

Under 23 is not a barometer of good side.........players in their prime r between 26 and 30, that upper ceiling can be higher if managed right. So the players we r getting this year r turning 26, 28, 28, 26 respectively all in their prime. We have gone long way to address the 'bottom 6' issue, in someways the ones we got this yr are more important than the superstars.

The only risk with him being in the squad is if you actually give him a game.
Carn m8. Theo saying “Seven News understands” is as far away from confirmed as possible
Seven news probably read it in this thread and ran with it.

"And next on Seven News. Gaff's move to North and what that means for the reigning premiers"
