It's either forceful pressure for a better deal, and he;s played very very well,

or

He could be going to Sydney who are very good at attracting players generally.

I very very much hope he stays.

Just to confirm- you are referring to a early second round pick in the 20s for third tall as 'scraps'...
If Blakey gets a bid in the top 8, then you may not be able to use only your lesser 2nd rounders.
Plus you obviously have no 1st rounder or 3rd rounder.

I guess Hanners will get you something useful though....

I would take a pick in the 20s for Langdon in a heartbeat.
He is a great intercept mark but he gets plenty of practise because every time he kicks it, it either comes back or goes over his head for a score.

11 years worth of trades with 4 northern clubs which of these represent "plundering". Generally speaking controlling have given fair value. IF not which exact trade was plundering?

2007 Camron Wood (brisbane) pick 14
2008 Andrew Corrie (brisbane) pick 93
2010 Darren Jolly (Syd() picks 14, 46
2011 Peter Yagmor (GCS and pick 50 for pick 27
2013 To9ny Armstrong (syd) delisted FA
2013 Jessie Whiote (syd) for pick 44
2013 Taylor Adams (GWS) for Heath Shaw
2013 Patrick Karanitzis for Jackson Paine
2014 Picks 5 ,25 Jack Crisp for Dayne Beams,
2015 Adam Treloar for picks 7,65 and 2016 first round
2015 James Aish for pick 26 and 2016 second round (stkilda)
2016 Will Hoskin Elliot for 2017 second round
2017 Sam Murray ,pick 79m, 2018 third round for 1016 second round
You guys have been fair traders, but you've still targeted the northern clubs, hence the need for academies to retain local players

In any event its not great for you guys if Langdon does decide to leave as he's worth more to you than what you'll get in a trade.

FWIW I think he'll probably stay, unless you end up with May

So you admit "plundering" was hyperbole.

I don't think there is much case that "northern clubs" are being targeted.Talented players possible unhappy or nearing the end of contract are targeted regardless of club. Collingwood or other clubs are keen to recruit talent from whatever club. Clubs will pursue talented players they think are get-able., regardless of if the club is a northern one of not.

Badly run clubs , who have no finals prospects will find clubs seeking to aquire their better players. That's regardless of the club being a northern club of not. Clubs that have a lot of talent and salary cap problems will always find clubs seeking to pick up players either through not getting a chance or salary cap pressures. GWS had a lot of talent.

And Why does Sydney get lumped in, a well run club, perennial finals team does not have a player retaining or acquisition problem.

Damien "Flog" Barrett reporting Langdon is talking with Freo today (after talking with Sydney yesterday)
Has he done medical there already?
Harley said he is now overseas so don't know if that means it's a serious option or not

Not sure about medical. Apparently he is headed over to Africa with Ed so that could explain why he is over here in Perth...

We currently hold four second round picks, not at the very top of the second round but spread throughout it. If we still hold the first two come draft night, they will be sufficient to cover any bid for Blakey from pick 6 onwards.

Trade to Sydney is set to happen

Seriously, why do Sydney have an academy? Year after year they pluck reputable interstate players and nobody ever leaves citing homesickness and yet this is the third time in five years that they have been handed a top ten talent in the country on a platter. And yet their supporters still get lippy at Eddie when he cites this ridiculous list management advantage.

All the best to Langers who nearly won us a premiership on his own this September.
You have an academy that you’re about to get a decent player out of no less.

This deal doesn't look like getting done until one of two things happen; May chooses to sign with Collingwood and thus allowing for Langdon to go rather cheaply or rather the more likely scenario of the Saints trading a satisfactory pick/s the Swans way for Hannebery to which we would then pass on to Pies. Either way, Steven May is ruining this trade period with his farcical non-decision up to this point. #justpickonealready

What are thoughts on his value? Early 2nd rounder?
Sydney have plenty of picks in that range but it could be the salary that is the sticking point but depending on the length of the contract the Swans should be able to get it done if the player wants to get there

Beams wanting to go back to Collingwood just about seals Langdon leaving, but I believe he'll go to Freo & not the Swans

Surely you're not referring to the cap, we could've fit in Lynch/May (1 mil), let's say Moore got another 200k in his contract, but then we also lost Fasolo (250k-300k), we also haven't even delisted anyone yet and I'm expecting many players to not be offered a new contract.

If anything it just means we will be more strict with what we take for Langdon. We will try use Langdon + Pick 18 + all our later picks to bring in Beams+Quaynor

Being offered close to $700,000 p/year by the Swans (nearly double what he was on at Collingwood).

Pies cap wont allow them to come close to matching that offer.

That's sounds astonishingly high... although given we were chasing moore on big money and just lost tippett + probably moving hanners off list could be a good get if we've front loaded appropriately.
