Not until the wages get a lot higher, especially for the bottom earners.

I think everything is relatively okay just make rookie contracts longer.
I reckon if you’re on average wage, or being offered a contract of at least average wage, your club should have the option to trade you anywhere. Far too much power with the players in terms of nominating a single club and then the host club being screwed.

The go home factor is a constant detriment to the northern clubs, which they’re currently trying to offset via the academy structure. Then you get a year like last year where Sydney draft 2 academy prospects and Vic media lose their shiiite claiming the academies are unfair. Dawson is a classic example of why northern clubs will not be competitive without academies.

Dawson will likely go for a pick/player/combo of about the value of pick 20. If he had a year to run on his contract it’d be a top 10 pick plus a 2nd rounder. As a Swans fan, I’d be more than willing to give that up for a player of his calibre and age.

Maybe but the Swans won't settle for the Crows second round pick either and Dawson is not going to through the PSD Either.

Crows need to better their offer (from what ibhave seen suggested from AFC fans here) or he goes to Port; simple as that
Lol, no!

Dawson will select which club he wants to go to.

Name me the last player who was dictated to by the club he was leaving?

What's their list got to do with it... as they are not going to give you back a similar quality player.
Everything.

We are not going to get a top three in BnF player.

However, looking at the lists and draft picks we are more likely to get a positional need/better pick from port than crows.

KPP/rucks who could be involved from Port: Ladhams, Hayes, Clurey, Marshall, Georgiades.

From Adelaide.... no one who i can see on your list and crows will likely attempt to strong arm us into pick 23 and rubbish. Whereas port more likely to do 17 and steak knives.

This is as it currently stands picks wise etc

Good luck getting a good player out of Port.

You are dreaming...

But it's logical the rumours coming out that he wants to go to Port - far better performing if he wants success in the future. As long as the contract $ are in the ballpark, he'll go for the better chance of success. Yes, it doesn't matter who Sydney fans would prefer.

It won't matter as Sydney won't get a say in who Dawson chooses so it's irrelevant which club you personally prefer to deal with.
I mean, personally I thought all BF posters were list managers!

I was wrong in that assumption?!

Asides, my original post stands:
I would prefer that Jordan nominates port so we can extract better value than if he nominated Adelaide.

I will now check if I can put my opinion about a potential trade on the draft and trade board.

You can have your opinion, but it's irrelevant as to who Dawson will choose lol.

I mean, yes. I know this. Hence the preface.

Looking at it logically, I am expecting that he will make a decision once he talks to both clubs.

The fact that he has not already nominate probably means that:

A. Waiting to talk to both clubs to make a decision
B. Is going to nominate Port and waiting for finals to finish
C. Is open to either club in SA and does not want to screw swans.

In those options, reckon it is likely A and maybe B.

Adelaide will need to stump up dollars if they want him because port would be better suited to what he wants.

Have noticed a few of your supporters mentioning Marshall. Marshall and a future 2nd rounder. Personally i wouldnt do it but i wouldnt put anything past the swans after we pulled their pants down with Aliir and you will be desperate to offload Dawson off your books. That squeeze is awfully tight down their.
Speaking of having your pants pulled down…

Crows have more cap space so can offer more salary than Port, including front loading if need be.

Port are obviously in a premiership window unlike the Crows which is in their favour.

He was & his family are Crows supporters.

Serong was a mad swans supporter... means nothing when playing.

Depends if he wants on field succes now. Crows look to be a minimum of two years away.

Crows will need to offer bigger coin to get him to nominate them.

Looking at tonights game, Port should be going hard for him.

really good player the Swans would be loathe to lose.
I reckon he has a big money offer to move to one of the Adelaide clubs.
I do realise he is originally from there, but otherwise, why would anyone want to go there.
This is certainly going to be an interesting trade period (when it finally gets here)

In a rebuild you are loathe to overpay fo fear it’s one step forward two steps back.

hope he chooses port, but even if he chooses the crows, zero chance 23 gets it done.

Pick 4 will get split and we will get like pick 10 which is what he’s worth. Swans list is good enough and crows pulled the PSD card last year which I know for a fact AFL house was livid about.

Pick 16 for Dawson if he chooses port is a good deal (academy picks don't matter). He's obviously a player they don't want to lose.

Sam Hayes and pick 16 would satisfy me which I don't think is unreasonable deal for either side. Port might get the nomination as Dawson's preferred club of choice but I doubt they would be so foolish to tank the deal altogether by holding on to an untried ruckman.

What the Swans will be worried about is if Dawson nominates the Crows as then pick 23 will be the best deal they can get.

Or given he’s been part of a young team rise up the ladder he wants to do it again
Not entirely true. Was at the club from 2016. In that time we have only missed finals in 2019 and 2020.

Adelaide look to be a minimum of two-three years off of contending. Could surprise but unlikely.

We have been rebuilding for a while to get to where we are at

So you’re a young side who missed the finals the previous 2 years and rose this year
