    Will go First pick next year , the only way we get him is trade with Gold Coast next year whom are likely to finish Bottom

    I'm not convinced Brisbane will finish bottom next year.

    Have been told Charlie Cameron will not be asking for a trade this year. Club helped resolve minor off field issues

    Is it a conscious decision to only allocate it to indigenous players since McLeod retired? If so that would limit the talent pool for finding someone who lived up to it.

    Izak Rankine certainly does tick a few boxes though.

    Cameron needed to return the favour to Tex from the 2015 EF vs the Bulldogs (IIRC) and square the ball to Walker who had peeled off from his man at the top of the 50 right in front...

    I know it sounds sacrilegious but if we could turn Sloane into one of (surely not both?!) Rankine or Lukosius then I'd do it.

    I think this is correct, but hopefully if there was an issue it has been worked out.

    I saw an Eddie Betts interview (I think Channel 9) from Sunday at Adelaide Oval. Was asked if Charlie would be staying, said yes, was asked to guarantee Charlie was staying, and he did.

    I heard from a very credible source that Charlie will be staying.

    Probably. It was definitely going through without the intervention of the desperate goalkeeper though.

    Flog Mark Stevens seems to think Charles is very close to asking for a trade to Brisbane?

    A few months back I was confident Gov would re-sign, Lever would be true to his name & go, but was 50/50 on Cameron leaving.

    All this time later, I'm still none the wiser on Cameron, as hearing very mixed messages both ways.

    The AFL just reported that he has asked for a trade, it was on their official Instagram account.

    Which seems unusual... can't see why the afl would come out and announce it like that?

    First cover, they said it was a done deal.
    Later news report, they said it's been alleged (or reported) that CC asked for a trade to Brisbane, so watered down a bit. Both Ch.9 about an hour apart.

    Bicks and Rowey said they rang the club who said "no comment." They didn't deny it.

    Really happy he played a great finals. Covers the average year he had so hopefully we can get overs for him. I am not sorry he is leaving.

    He played one outstanding final (Prelim), one awful final (Qualifying), and one anonymous final (Grand Final). I would hardly call that "a great finals series". One good game does not a "great series" make, no matter how good it is (and his PF final performance was amazing).

    One good game does not make up for 4 months of unremitting garbage, which is what he churned out for the rest of the season, from R12 onwards.
