    He'll stay, he probably wouldn't get too much game time with our forward line anyway and besides I want to see years of battles between him and his brother Jeremy lined up on each other :). But I would be happy if we did the deal of a straight swap for Masten.

    It would have to be Masten and a first rounder as Masten would be the change.

    He wouldn't get much game time in your forward line? That's funny.

    Who would he push out ? I don't know if you've looked at our list but we have a pretty decent "best 22" with about 10 players legitimately pushing to break into it. Mitch would be a good acquisition don't get me wrong but I think he will stay and the price would be too high anyway.

    At least Freo have failed to bring in pretty much every key forward they've targeted over the years. One down, one to go!

    I'd argue he's already better than Le Cras (Hill too).

    Think you're under rating Gov's improvement curve . Neither him or his brother picked in main draft as 18 year olds but both coming with a rush now , Gov hasn't scratched the surface of his talent yet whereas Lever was Vic metro captain in his bottom age year

    Not to say Lever won't improve and be an absolute jet but it's closer than you think

    And Geelong replaced him with that other superstar from north Aaron Black

    Sheesh it's good to have multiple talented forwards on our list

    Would love a midfielder though !!

    Our media really is pathetic.

    Lynch's comments have been broadcast across the media as "Crows confident of keeping Mitch", when it was one player voicing his opinion. It means nothing really and yet the media have dined out on it because they are shit.

    But we're not talking about they're careers, the question was who would get game; i.e., who's better now.
