Redux: MOD NOTE: threads like this are dumb, and a complete waste of our time to moderate, because people have a hard time understanding what "No Discussion" means. So, I tell you what - i‘ll keep the thread open, but infract anyone who posts anything that isn’t a rumour.

Rumours look like this:
Crows will take Elijah Hollands with first pick.
(same norwood based source who said Stephens would go top 5 when most "experts" had him outside top 10).
Specifically, they reference a future event that *may* happen, and usually end up being laughably false.

I will say this rumour was passed on to me really early in the year, so no idea how true it is and there's every chance it's no longer valid, but I'll post it anyway.

Anyway, the rumour was Freo aren't all that interested in using their 1st round pick this year and want to trade it for some immediate help, as well as some late picks so they can still bring in their NGA picks in Joel Western and Brandon Walker. So one of the players they were looking at was Matt Crouch, with the deal being Crouch + late picks we won't use for Freo's 1st rounder (currently pick #8). When this rumour was given to me Freo were 2nd bottom, so I'm not sure if A. Freo still have interest or B. we'd be willing to accept a pick that likely pushes out to double digits for Matt.

Soft spot for Brisbane
I heard some talk up here that Brisbane are looking to get out of this year's draft and Gold Coast get further into it.

Terrible source, though. Rugby connected, but barely AFL.

Rumour that Zac Merrett may be out of Essendon and linked to Carlton. Adam Saad to request a trade away from Essendon. Rumour that Brad Crouch may end up at Essendon but Geelong still interested.
