    I like Adams as a prospect...but feel we're already well stocked with KPDs. 3yrs could also be a bit much and turn out like another Frost.

    Adams has already shown a lot more than frost did at the time recruited him, Frost is and always will be that stop gap we took a risk on!

    In addition being involved within a premiership winning club and gaining that vital experience will be another huge plus for getting him in.

    Eagles and Frost most likely (and maybe even Walker, who knows) won’t be on the list next year . The acquisition of Adams makes sense, it’s just a year in advance.

    Adams as a full forward???
    Fagan made a comment on Walker roughly that walker goes well when he is pushed to prove himself. Bringing in outsiders in the same age bracket might be the competition he needs to get himself to the next level. And to get a contract at the end of next year.

    Adam's is a beast.... I think he needs to lose some muscle weight.

    Get him 3-5kg lighter may help the stress on his feet.

    He has been doing nothing but pumping iron whilst out injured.

    Discussion thread for possible Marcus Adams trade, news stories in the trade compendium thread.

    Disappointed I couldn't quite work in a Marcus Brody reference into the title. Oh well.

    You know ZoBlitz. He once got lost in his own thread title.

    You're probably right. But before he loses that muscle weight, could he play one game matched up on Jeremy Cameron?

    What’s wrong with the normal trade thread? That bitch survived Lachie Neale it can survive Marcus Adams.

    Things tend to get busier when the trade week actually begins so creating individual threads makes it a little easier for people to have focused discussions on the different trades.

    Thanks for reminding me. In that case a 5th round pick should do it

    Personally if we get Adams, I would like it to be next years second and next years third/Keays for Adams and this years second. Not too sure the doggies would go for it but would be a starting point.

    At his best, he is easily worth a first rounder. He's the same kind of beast defender as McGovern and Rance, which the last two years have shown, can do teams a world of good in the pursuit of a flag.

    Doggies will demand a second and we'll probably end up having to pay something around that mark. See what happens I guess.

    Nah not a huge need for us, wouldn’t be selling the farm. Talk of 22 or a first team player is crazy.

    And if the Bulldogs crow about him being contracted, and what we’re prepared to pay him, and getting value back in terms of where he was drafted, I would be refreshing their memory as to what went down a mere 12 months ago. What did we get for a contracted, KPF who was drafted at pick 2?

    Funny how the wheel turns.

    Second round pick for a guy who has barely been able to get on the park insane; contracted or not.

    Personally don’t see why the interest when we have dearth of KPD’s on the list.

    He would be our 2nd or 3rd best kpd thats why. We might have a few kpd on the list but we have only got 1 genuine star.

    Agree. After their trade for Schache, I am happy to see us give up a future 3rd rounder.

    Although we have high hopes for Skinner, the fact remains that with his ACL histroy he is at serious risk of not having an extended AFL career. If you also assume Eagles and Frost are not long term options, our KPD reserves are not as high as some here are suggesting. Especially the enforcer type KPD's.

    So what did we end up getting for Schache - a contracted young KPF taken at pick 2?

    And he looks like he hits hard with some fancy footwork too.

    Even more reason why we need him. :p

    No, I was meaning to say “plethora”; good pick up.;)

    Exactly, I thought we must have a secret list of players I didn't know about. Harris is the only sure thing as a key defender goes and I think he ideally suited for the intercept role.

    No idea what the trade ends up being but I've had a think and I wouldn't trade a 2nd rounder for him. Maybe a swap of future 2nds and a future third from us from Adams would work - I reckon the dogs will think they can get back up the ladder.
