We need to start recruiting guys with that competitive streak in their game and that are willing to run both ways and put the team before themself.

We have no white line fever guys outside of Dev Smith and Connor Mckenna. Too many nice guys that want to look good getting 30 disp but getting murdered the other way.
Redman looks the goods, but you're correct.

Zak Jones from Sydney fits that bill IMO. he wont take a backward step and Sydney are re-known for being 2 way runners.

As far as a ruckman goes, I would be looking at Scott Jones from Fremantle.
I REALLY like Sean Darcy, but so do fremantle and with Sandilands retiring and Lobb routinely injured/seen as a forward he might be next in line at Freo. It wpuld also likely cost a 2nd in this years draft.

Jones is buried deep in their ruck depth chart but showed a bit when he stepped into their team last year. Wouldnt cost much (4th rounder) and is a big lad at 205cm and 115kg.

Just randomly as a hypothetical, i wonder if Melbourne would entertain a Nathan Jones for David Zaharakis straight swap.
They need outside midfielders (they have Jones out on a wing) and we need inside midfielders. Jones has had a better year but Zaka if 2 years younger.
NO chance of happening i know, but interesting thought. I would certainly entertain it

The moment I read people wanting to trade Hurley is the moment I stop reading that particular post.

Our defence has gone to s**t without him down there, trading him away would be ridiculous.

That Fogarty shows a bit though!
It has shat itself, but John also hasn't gotten any games into BZerk. Hooksy looking cooked shows us he probably needed to be managed. Ridley also could have gotten more games here and there. At this stage it looks like a plan (if one exists) to integrate them and create sustainability won't happen until next year. Problem with Hooker and Hurley is they'll age and see the game go past them in fairly quick succession. If we don't get games into the youngers we risk losing them and/or falling victim to a defensive sustainability gap while new young defenders get up to the task. So, while the idea of trading some older players (dodged that 😊) is an unhappy one in the short term, it has its upside. Young Fogarty, maybe?

Guys, seriously, you're not getting the Fog. We signed Fog until 2021. Or Brouch.

You may well get Jacobs for free, which would be good for you, you need a better ruck than you have.

Jenkins would fix your short term key forward issues, he does average 2 goals a game. Looks like we want to salary dump him, how does a second rounder sound? Any interest?

You have about as much chance of getting a 2nd round pick for Jenkins as we do of getting Fogarty.

our KPF issues are more long term than short
I'd be happy with McKernan and Brown playing regularly if we had a young gun coming through the system
But we don't. so i'm not

JJ and Sauce aren't the answer for us
Brouch would be handy though.

Draper did his knee in May so not sure how ready he’ll be for start of next season. I’d imagine heavy 200cm ruckmen would take a while to get back to some form. Plus we’re not even sure Draper can play AFL.

TBC seems to always have some problem pre season so if he misses first cooper it could cost us again.
Maybe he's gone early this year?

More a combo of Hurley going down and Hooker's elbow hobbling him
Agree that it would be ridiculous to trade him out, but only if we did something stupid like trade for picks
If an elite mid or ruck came up, i'd give up an elite defender since we're well stocked.

Like for like though.

So you want to salary dump him but still get a really good asset in return? Not sure that's how it works when you want to get off a big contract.
