Can someone explain to me the rules of Carlton potentially trading pick 1 for two other first rounders.

I've heard it be reported all over the place, but how can you trade picks outside of trade week?

Guessing you missed the announcement that picks can be traded right up until the draft now.

It actually finishes a week or so before the Draft, but then reopens at the start of the draft, all the way through to the finish.

Do yourselves a favour, and watch the movie Draft Day with Kevin Costner, it's on Netflix at the moment. Personally, I think it's the reason draft night trading came in.

I’m bored in a car park. So I got to making a mental list of players from other teams that I like watching. When at his best and not injury-hampered I really like Dane Beams. Also Travis Boak - when he’s at the top of his form he’s an absolute gun. P. Cripps also. And I love watching Brodie Grundy. I would have added Steven May at his best but I have to cross him off. I’ll replace him with Dean Kent - I like that he has a bit of grunt and he’s a good, long kick on his day. Used to love Gablett Jnr at his prime but he irks me somewhat now. I think it’s because of channel 7 commentary crapping on with the “little master” stuff - mostly when he’s doing something completely unremarkable like standing on the field or wobbling his thighs on the bench.

Can someone outline.com or just copy/paste the Herald Sun article on the Alberton League they did on Monday? I'm not crazy enough to get a subscription and would like to know if it's just me that outline.com won't work on the article.

Docherty done suspected to have done his ACL again, poor guy.

Carlton going to struggle without him.
Confirmed
CARLTON'S worst fears have been realised, with co-captain Sam Docherty suffering another ACL injury.

The defender went down at training in an innocuous incident on Monday morning, and is expected to require his second knee reconstruction in little more than a year.

The club said it was considering all options for Docherty's treatment before committing to a timeline for his recovery.

I hadn't realised that Adelaide had moved on to death riding Carlton now.

You'd think they'd have one for every club seeing how so many players leave Adelaide.

Cripps couls genuinely win carlton 5 games on his own next year.
I reckon if Paul Roos could build a new club with 1 signing it would be him.

He dominated this year and they won 2. Don’t see him single handedly win them 5 games.
