Think a lot of the lack of interest was also to do with the fact that everyone seems pretty certain she has a heads up agreement to head to one of the expansion teams for a packet. Remains to be seen if that is the case but you could understand a team not really in direct contention not wanting to upset the list plan to get her when she's going to be leaving after a seasonThe news coming out of Princes Park last year about Tayla wasn't crash hot which was actually surprising as they were just shooting themselves in the foot by lowering her trade value. Lots of clubs ended up saying thanks but no thanks.
Hoskings are good pals with Tayla so I am sure Sarah would have been in Sheahan's ear but we said no. Spooked.
In the end Blues sent Tayla to the Dees plus pick 44 in exchange for pick 32. A steal.
Has been noticeably quieter off the field this year. Dees and Tayla have handled this well.
Melbourne makes sense because even if they have her for just one year she could make the difference between winning and losing the flag
