    Melbourne wouldn't even attempt to get Lever if it would cost them Petracca.

    Probably the highest rated player on their list, won't happen.
    I'm not completely against Watts (especially if we miss Stringer & Smith)
    Might only take a 3rd rounder

    Just that he is not good at either forward or mid?

    And i think you would need to be drunk to have that opinion.

    It'll never be 50/50 though but something must be done about top 20 draft picks - clubs should have rights to keep at discounted salary for 7 years, same with free agency, if North proposes 1 million to Dustin Martin, Tigers only have to pay 750k to match (as examples)

    Pretty much. From the limited exposure I've seen of him he looks ok but doesn't do either particularly well and as a result gets shifted between.

    Every now and then he'll bob up, play a ripper game and you'll remember why you like him. But most of the time he'll plod along.

    Like Howlett, albeit with more ability.

    Who knows. I could be wrong.

    He's about as close to untouchable as a player could get.

    Anyway, am I the only one looking forward to the trade period 10x more than the draft?

    I've read many stupid things in my lifetime.

    I like you, Dal Santo, but what you just said is not just one of, it is the single most idiotic thing I've ever heard.

    How's the equivalency he draws between a 30 and 33 year old Lewis and Mitchell being traded by Hawthorne, and us trading the 22 year old Merrett? There's a reason everyone would laugh Dal Santo, you muppet - it's beyond insane, stupid and unlikely. It's so far beyond that it's at a point that doesn't yet have a word to describe it.

    The endless infinity of trade suggestions, it is.
