Lo

Lobb would be open.
Would fit your window perfectly and he is more than serviceable. Had a very consistent year but has gone missing in previous times. Was really surprised he wasn't used in the lj trade.
It’s Lobb’s first consistent year in how many? He also dislikes playing ruck and is fairly one dimension as a forward.

I think the Dees plan is get Grundy so we sure up our ruck for a number of years, maybe even stash Gawn on the bench if that’s a thing.

Then work to fix our key forwards over the next 12 months. Easiest fix would be Cadman but that’s gone. Likely we look for a solid mature tall in 12 months time.

At the same time we didn’t have to use the Jackson capital on a key forward, but could’ve used it on a classy mid/flanker which is a huge need. There’s 4 or 5 of them who look good to my eyes who will go somewhere between 3-10 in the draft, just not sure if they get to 13.

Could Melbourne interest a club like hawthorn to trade pick 6 for 13 and the future 1st tied to freo?

I think the fact that Collingwood are required to pay 1/3 of Jackson's future salary is being overlooked. They're still doing that on big trades aren't they?

Trade is fine. Not what Demons wanted but still extracted two years worth of good picks off us. They should be able to do enough with them to get into the top 10.
Significantly below what Melbourne demanded, and a tiny bit more than what Fremantle originally offered

If only you Dees fans thought this way for the past 3 months, this thread would only have six or seven pages!
I for one thought it’d land about where it did. Of course we wanted more but it’s a bit hard when Freo finished in the eight and won a final.

Again... I still have that bad after taste from the last time Freo traded heavily for a WA tall forward from the demons.

Pick 13, dockers 2023 1st and North's 2023 2nd is a bit much.

That's potentially pick 13, pick 8 and pick 20 to the demons for a 21 year old

Surprised with the pessimism. If I had the choice between keeping Jackson and what we received I would rather keep Jackson. He will have a great career at the Dockers.

I secretly hope that Darcy gets annoyed at this situation and asks to be traded to Geelong just as Rhys Stanley is retiring.
Yeah he's hating it

Careful Dockers fans, don’t get to far ahead of your selves regarding next years F1 being in the teens. That’s finishing 6th again at least. It’s a good result but better to just say F1, Just saying.
Careful hawthorn fans don’t get too far ahead of yourselves regarding Lloyd meek.
He’s contracted for next year so 2nd rounder or nada

PREMIERSHIP ruckman Luke Jackson sensed from Melbourne's mid-season bye in round 14 that he would be returning home to Western Australia at the end of the season, with Fremantle the club he wanted to join.

Jackson, who officially became a Docker on Monday, met in Perth with the Fremantle and West Coast hierarchies in June as both WA clubs pitched for the talented 21-year-old.

It was his meeting with Dockers coach Justin Longmuir and football manager Peter Bell that "felt right", however, and he returned to Melbourne ahead of round 15 leaning towards a future with the Dockers.

A big question is what Freos F1 looks like. There's a good chance it's #9 or #10. Makes the trade very even IMO. If Freo get 250 games and a F&B from him we win the trade. Won't know for 10 years though.
