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.

Port spoke to James Rowe late last week, expect them to pick him late/rookie.

Essendon were also considering Pedlar at the pick they took Perkins, but decided to stay local. A few clubs just didn’t do enough homework on him, but the clubs that did had him rated top 15 for most of the year.

Crows went hard after Charlie Ballard from the Suns, but the long term deal they offered enticed him to stay

Galluci & Poholke had a serious problem on the snow in Adelaide. They would have had their contract extended (christ even david mckay did) but they were causing cultural problems especially for the kids coming in.
Collingwood were apparently very interested in Galluci (to the point he had started a mini preseason to prep) this offseason, thought they were going to score with him being delisted, Crows themselves told Collingwood he was a gear head.. Pies withdrew all interest.
Interesting couple of rumors on a thread on the main board.

Not crows related, but plenty of Norwood fans will be a bit miffed as this fella was supposed to line up with them this year according to my Norwood mates

The club was worried about Fisher leaving after he put contract talks on hold around Covid, and decided not to re open them when they were able to.
