Trade for Hickey - Downgrade pick 39 to pick 61 (Cameron) who we would’ve taken with 39 anyway as the draft panned out. We also swapped our 2019 4th round pick for St Kildas

Trade for Lobb - picks 11 and 19 for Lobb, 14,43 and 47. That trade cost Fremantle the opportunity to draft Jordan Clark

Hickey is probably on about half as much as Lobb salary wise

Lobb was a much better fit at Fremantle than he would have been for us and it’s no surprise we didn’t chase him too hard
A 3 pick downgrade and pick 20-something is very cheap for Lobb. Not annoyed we didn’t get him, but if it wasn’t an expansion side, Freo would have had to cough up far more than they did.

Not having Sandilands is one of the go to excuses already popping up on their board.

If you sign a 76 year old broken husk of a giant, you have to expect to not get 22 games a year from him.

He’s played 26 of their last 66 games. When you sign a guy coming off 39% availability in the three years prior, you have to know he’ll miss some time. Stop factoring him into your team, and just acknowledge that having him occasionally might be a nice cherry on top for a handful of games per year.

Poor bugger must just want to be able to rest.
I'd have thought he'd be even more of a liability with 6-6-6. Sandi isn't going to be doing anything after the ball up. They'd be playing with 6-5-6.

Yep, it’s a different world over on the Freo board

While one group is debating the need for a new coach and fitness staff, over here the main concern is how everyone’s triceps are developing. Life’s pretty grand.
They're not allowed to debate Lyon anymore are they? They locked that thread yesterday

Just like they rode Pav into the ground, whereby he played 2 years too long.

They had 10 years to draft multiple forwards and develop....And did SFA about it.... until he left and then panicked.

What a joke of a club

Would any other league in the world classlessly and shamelessly promote a company like this?

******* knew this bullshit would be happening as soon as they sold the naming rights
NRL do it every year
