Must be impossible.They would need to find minimum 1 first round, quite possibly 2.
I would be surprised if AFL let West Coast trade either 2021 or 2022 first rounders.
Of course I know what West Coast CAN do. We know what players they have on their list, and we also know how many picks they have in each round, and we know that they can not trade either their 2021 or 2022 first round pick without bringing in another first round pick to replace it (because AFL rules).You have no idea what WC can or can't do re a deal, your guessing as all the rest here are and as for Freo moving any of those 3 IMO your absolutely dreaming.
Says the guy who thinks playing Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling, Oscar Allen, Bailey Williams and Nic Naitanui in the same team isn't too tall.Must be impossible.
You're very fond of fake certainty, aren't you? As though saying it and pretending to be certain about it makes you an expert. When in fact most of what you're saying is contingent on unknowns.
Why don't you just keep your powder dry instead of pretending to know in advance when you don't? Are you that deeply in love with your own bullshit?
All three are borderline best 25 when fit.These guys are yet to put together a decent string of games, not arguing they wont make it, but as of now they are steak knives material, we are talking Cripps.
Love your optimism .... Williams has more upside than the other two combined, both of whom debuted in 2018. Geelong didnt want Brander in the Kelly deal. The rumoured interest in Pech has come to nought.All three are borderline best 25 when fit.
By the end of this season I expect all three to be locked in best 25.
Williams IMO will become the most valued. Big FF who can ruck don't grow on tree's. Look what Hickey just got us at the trade table, a future 2nd.
I expect with a half decent 2021 all three would each land min a 2nd rounder if traded. That is not steak knives.
If Geelong didn't want Brander why did the Eagles come out and say 'no way is Brander involved in the Kelly deal'?Love your optimism ....

You also had Crown (sponsor) tip in some cash to him for token appearances promoting the Merrywell and arranged for Seven (sponsor) to promote Crown's venture during prime time news.We signed Petch on a 3 year deal as he wanted more $$ but we couldn't do that so added a 3rd year as security instead.
Every player is entitled to a marketing allowance to increase their income.You also had Crown (sponsor) tip in some cash to him for token appearances promoting the Merrywell and arranged for Seven (sponsor) to promote Crown's venture during prime time news.
It's smart business.
Nic will continue earning big $$ post retirement from his marketing activities. Likely more than he is currently allowed to under the AFL caps on marketing.You don't need to defend it, it speaks for itself.
Just like Nic Nat being spliced into the last second of the Hungry Jacks (sponsor) advert after he signed an extension to pad it out.
Coach*You couple up a player with an investor and they go purchase a Hungry Jacks franchise somewhere.
If he “develops” like this year then he’ll be getting offers for less than 600k a yearHe’s reportedly on $600k this year, if he continues to develop like he did in 2020 then by the end of the season anything up to $800k is not unrealistic. If freo make the finals and win one, he will likely stay for less, but that’s not guaranteed.
Cant stop people investing in profitable businesses.Coach*
Simmo now the Co-franchisee of a Perth store. FWIW - Some won't like it, but very good business by the Eagles. Clearly done now to help manage the cuts to the Footy Dept. cap
The issue is with his long term girlfriend, who has apparently made the decision to move to WA to be with her family, as she is battling a very severe OCD illness. The 'Carlton missing finals' is a smokescreen. It has nothing to do with his loyalty at Carlton. The question is, will Cripps follow her back?Another Cripps rumour of going back to WA...yawn.
I've heard nothing but the complete opposite - he loves living in Melbourne.
