That is an easy question... we could have traded that pick up the order, as we've done many times before. It would not have cost too much to advance a couple of spots.
Yeah I totally remember you telling us all pre draft that we should make that deal. You continue to be a shining light in a sea of s**t known as the MFC board.

Mate Duursma and Ben King will alone cost you pick 2.
Clubs aren't stupid these days.
I'd be using Pick 2 in the draft... so they won't cost 'US' Pick2 as a minimum, because it wouldn't be available for that deal.

Duursma wouldn't be available I'd expect... but that 'thought', would not stop me from giving him a call.

Rumour is King wants OUT. So a deal could be struck, in some way.

Would you trade Petracca for King.?


Maybe Preuss and P20 to GWS, would be enouggh for P13.? >>> Kemp.?

There are lots of ways to strike deals with other clubs.?

I wasn't here actively on this forum at that time... but yes I was calling to not use two 1st Rnd picks for lever. the year before.

Of course you were. Obviously in Levers draft year you knew that Duursma was gonna go pick 19 and we should have held that pick we lost for making the prelim. Genius

Updated rumours.

Unless an incredible deal comes our way and we need to downgrade, or the potential PP to the suns (which seems more likely to be at 19 now) moves us to 3, we will take 2 to the draft.

The Dees will be offering next year’s 2nd for Langdon, Freo want 20(21). I don’t care if give them 20, just as long as we return the phrase, “he wants out though so his value significantly drops” to Peter Bell.

Ben King wants more opportunity. No word on this yet, but I’d be surprised if we didn’t at least look into it all. Nth will let at least one key forward to this year.

I would be totally shocked if we traded Preuss. Preuss was told that his tank was nowhere near where it needs to be this year and his preseason will be spent building that up. GWS have a few potential moves for a ruck.

Do you mean Ben McKay from North wants more opportunity or Ben King from GC?

King wants more opportunity? He has been there less than a year. Typical generational attitude of ‘I deserve’.

There’s no way I’d trade Petracca for King. Why would you? A forward line of McDonald, Weidemann and King? Oh and Petty? Petracca has played incredibly well the last 4-5 weeks I feel, if we let him have some freedom he will be a really big player for us.

You’ve got Petracca over Brayshaw? Adelaide will be offering Fogarty a very lucrative deal if he is out of contract. If they don’t then 17 other clubs will be. I am confident they’ll keep him.

I don’t know how Wines fixes any of our midfield issues to be honest. Peter Wright won’t assist our forwards and we don’t need him rucking if we have Preuss. Whitfield I agree with. You need to add Brad Hill to your list.

Anything about us talking to Richmond?

No Petracca is a keeper

Who is your source DB? Obviously name is not necessary just curious whether it's a journo, club employee somewhere, Josh Mahoney etc
I have a couple. A close mate who works in recruitment at GWS. My old boss is a player manager, a couple of journos and then some totally random ones like an NBA player growing up 3 streets away.
