The pieces are coming together nicely. Love what Brady’s doing so far.
If Young can hold down a half back spot it releases McDonald into the midfield where he can become tagger or attacking mid.
We all saw what he was able to do this year in a tagging role. Have always felt that McDonald is being wasted in the backline, time to put him in the guts.

So according to Twomey, Lachie Young will definitely be a roo. It's whether we have to trade for him.

He mentioned that the Dogs initially offered a 3rd year rookie list spot but then changed to a senior list spot. The grey area is whether the first offer is taken into account or the final offer.

After snagging Perez, Mahony & Comben in the 30's last year, I am happy to trust the current footy depts speculative drafting.
Still want to extract maximum value out of trades.

Scoring Perez et al only to settle for peanuts for Brown is like getting a good price for your car so thinking **** it I'll hock off my house for unders.

Savvy recruiting or hail mary desperate attempt?

Remember the names Will Sierakowski and Alex Morgan. Also savvy recruits from rookie lists which turned out to be, well, just like the rest of our recruiting recently.

Hope this one pans out differently.
I remember also Michael Firrito who I think was a rookie at Hawthorn before we recruited him

I knew that reading those High Court cases would come in handy one day.

Okay, where's the rule book? Is "offer" singular or plural?

I can't really remember but Morgs seemed a bit hard done by to me now you mention him.

In his first (of two) senior games he got 18 disposals, nine marks, two tackles and five 1%ers, mostly spoils. His second game wasn't that great but that was the only shot he got.

Hope this kid gets a better run.
Pretty sure he got injured in his second game

So technically even if the Dogs changed their offer to being elevated to the main list clause (h) should apply and he is a free agent as he was offered a third year Rookie Player contract...
Yeh you'd think if there's evidence of the rookie offer he and his agent can argue that they took that as the trigger for his free agency status.

The fact the dogs came back with a senior spot to patch up their loophole ****up should be irrelevant.

As someone said though, this smacks of a pyrrhic victory. We'll whack off about getting one over them as he goes on to play 2 games and gets delisted.

"an offer" is singular.

"an offer.......but does not accept that offer", further reinforces singularity.

My reading of this is that the dogs have very weak grounds to apply for a trade pick, if this can be ratified.
Of course as others have mentioned, as an act of good will if this opens talks for their pick 12 then I think it's only proper of our club to do the noble thing.

Of course, and I am applying HCA interpretation of statute law, but if legally pushed to the nth degree then this is how I reckon the matter would be ruled.

Hm
As a bush lawyer only, I read it clearly that FA is triggered immediately upon the rejection of any offer of a 3rd year rookie contract. There are no sub-clauses about extraneous circumstances, e.g. subsequent offers, clouding this point.

Of course you may still choose to play nice with the Dogs in the context of any other deals that are being cooked up behind the scenes, but it seems black and white to me.
