Do you want AFC to do their best to get Motlop?

    Geelong don't want him.

    Jenkins regularly skips at half pace as he watches his opponent jog out of the forward 50. Jenkins often heads towards the goalsquare instead of offering a block or Sheppard for the ball carrier.

    Jenkins does plenty of things which could be classified as lazy. If he ran with half as much intent toward the opposition as he does to get on the end of a scoring chain I might agree with you.

    No less lazy than Motlop. Lazier if anything.

    Menzel's never taken a game apart though, Motlop at least has on occasion - when he feels like it.

    I think he'll choose to the club where he has the best vibe, which for him might be where he can get away with more like rocking up overweight to preseason etc, rather than the club that will get the most out of his obvious talents.

    Despite having a clear advantage in disposals per game, he barely edges Cameron for metres gained.

    Good DE% though.

    I won't be heartbroken if he goes to Port. I don't think he is the type of player we need.

    Someone with his talent, pedigree and big game experience that can be brought in without having to offload anything? A big YES from me.

    And he won’t be on $600k - our list management don’t just throw away the play book.

    Get him and back in Eddie to get the best out of him. His best (like his brothers) is match winning. He's a good age, free agent and there's a starting 18 spot for him with Cameron leaving.

    Motlop reminds me of Menzel in many regards. Can be dangerous offensively, but not great on the defense. If for around 500,000, I think it's reasonable to have a crack at him. Anything 600,000 or above is not worth the punt.
    I would have like to see Menzel get given a few consecutive AFL games with us, so shame to hear about his delisting.

    That's exactly how Port flogs work.

    Ok I'm taking bets. Motlop to Port. As soon as Kornes opened his Port gob and lied that the Crows had blown Port out of the water with a huge offer, I knew Motlop was off to Port.

    I agree its most likely and 4 weeks ago was pretty much a done deal. Bit of mud in the water now and we are a sneaky chance and i understand the GC offer is huge so if its money thats where he goes.

    Kanes' puffing is a beautiful bob each way cos if he goes Pear its kultcha and if its us then its just about coin(which it wont be). Win win for him.

    Not so. He is a wanted player, but we might not afford him. He is frustrating, but one of the few players who can go to that next level nearly on demand. His demand though. If we can't keep him, he's a good pick up for any club. X factor, goals... maybe Pyke can motivate him better. He might need a change.

    FWIW, we lost Travis Varcoe to Pies a few years ago, a swap so we got Clark, and I was devastated. Always loved Varcoe. Reading the Pies board at about this time, their reactions were similar- mixed. 2 years later they love him. And Motlop is meant to be the better player.

    I'm wondering if we think motlop is coming and it is why menzel has been let go even though it looks like Cameron will also be gone..I just don't see why we'd get rid of menzel unless we had something up our sleeves

    I'm not sure but there was talk about motlop leaving in the second half of the year.. I'm not so sure the Crows interest has come out of nowhere either.
