One of Bulldogs, Saints or AFLPA with a VFL gig at Footscray.
As Mr VitalDread, I believe, indicated previously, young Jordan is likely to end up on a reduced 1 year contract with assisted passage into AFLW/VFL coaching roles, and I'm sure an AFLPA career may await him as well. He is a young man of great character, friendly, inclusive, and will deservedly do well in life.

That’s a good trade for St Kilda. Would have loved something like that for Roughead.

Carlton have done well with the McGovern stuff too

Ho hum

Hate to say it but looks like we will do f@rk all and go to the draft again with people saying pick 6 is SOOOOOO much better than a 2 time AA player and blah blah

Sam Power better start doing something because he presently look like an utter utter bust, thrown all his eggs in one basket that has a paper bottom

On a different tack - we don't seem to ever be interested in left field Cat B rookies or Irish recruits.

Maybe some unsuccessful dabbles in years gone by (Collons mark I? Irish guy) and Tweedie have put this type of recruiting to bed at the kennel?

Hopefully it isn't the case, still early

Bit nervous on Sam Power

Surely you'd wait at least until next Wed, before peddling that line out?

Carlton gave up 600 points in their trade for Sydneys 13.

I'd be pretty happy if I were Sydney.

They seem to love getting top end players but can't seem to manage to find any good foot soldiers.

Not sure it is conducive to building a good team.

Agreed.

While we're at it, I'm ready to sack whoever we take in the draft this year.

None of them have even touched the ball so far...

Surely later in trade week a few more " significant trades" will shake out of the trees regardless of the Wingard outcome. We cant go thru trade week and end up with a Lloyd or similar trade with our age profile? That would be a disaster

When our name is connected to two players in a trade period we said we would be very active in I would think most of us would be pretty unimpressed so far

It also looks like we have gone all in for one player and he is holding everything up AND we probably won’t get him. So do we wait until next week for an answer from Wingard and do a scramble trade like Scache again and preened that was always the goal?

Do you think it would be different with Jason McCartney? I doubt it.

They did amazing hey.
Essentially turned 13 into 26, 28 & 40.

When we traded 11 for got 20,21 and had to swap our 3rd rounder for Carlton’s 4th
