    Loved: Gibson given a lifeline. If ever a player has fought to carve out a career it’s him. More talented players should look at his work ethic.

    Hated: “Homesick” line. It’s getting annoying now.

    Learnt: SOS is a clever dude.

    Loved: players nominating my club and disco getting shit done

    Hated: stalling from the dogs and the lack of elite inside midfielders available

    Learnt: surely adelaide take over our mantle as difficult to deal with

    Loved: The Swans getting a future 2nd round pick for a rookie.

    Hated: The length of the trade period.

    Learnt: They should just fold the GC Suns now.

    Loved: Pick 2 coming in (Thank you Gold Coast)

    Hated: Weller's "Gold Coast have put a great deal on the table and Freo would be pretty silly not to accept it." Since when does a 21 yr old get to lecture the recruiting department. Pick 2 bitch.

    Learnt: Lachie Weller's manager is an absolute parasite of a human being.

    Loved: Lobbe (who used to be considered one of the very best rucks in the AFL) was traded for a pick in the 90s

    If we assume 2018 has the same finishing positions as 2017

    Collingwood are adopting Richmond model -reappoint Coach - conduct a review - do nothing in trade. In my opinion Richmond have four A graders, the Pies don't! I think as a result they will finish bottom four in 2018.

    Doesn't matter, we needed to fill up our cap anyway. Still a free hit.

    I learned that Im very confused about whether I hated or loved the Lions trade period...

    Also Adelaide have issues trading out contracted best 22 players but no qualms about trading them in. Funny how that works.

    I'm a little glad I get to be the first person to point this out.

    You have it wrong, we're getting your 2018 third rounder.

    If he is contracted for 2 years on that money, we will pay him 850K this year just to get to minimum cap spend

    Haha yeah just realised this, reported it the other way round when it went through. My post was said in jest, don’t think there is a big difference either way.
