    Welcome Lincoln McCarthy! I hope the club has plenty of cotton wool.

    If the trade with Geelong for McCarthy is correct that is a good bit of trading by both clubs. Both Geelong and the Lions benefit and walk away happy with improved draft positions. Well done Ambrogio.

    Looks like a fair and simple trade. Gives the Cats a pick upgrade and us breaking even as the picks are likely going to be used for points.

    Hopefully we can get Lincoln's body right and he can become rock solid depth and sit somewhere between the 18-30th player picked on our list.

    Yep, that's how you establish positive respectful relationships with clubs. Working together to maximize opportunities. Calling out Rosich.

    Very happy with the price we payed for McCarthy. Dream scenario for me would be to acquire Neale and manage to stay in the second round of the draft this year, as well as being able to comfortably cover the points for McFayden.
    Interesting one for me now is Adams. Will be curious to see if our interest is completely genuine and what the dogs would expect in return. I assume he would be more valuable to them than say a future third?

    Dodongo disagrees. If McCarthy gets fully fit again and finds form he is best 22

    McCarthy is a free hit though so nothing ventured nothing gained reallly.
    All depends on what the dogs expect for Adams I guess- and if he wants to come here.

    It's basically a free hit. We are not losing anything if he doesn't work out.

    A heap of talent.

    Hopefully a change of scenery helps with his injury history. Very highly regarded at our club but just hasn’t put it together. In the scheme of things the Lions are not giving up a lot, so there is not a huge risk attached anyway.

    Here is hoping for a 20 game, 35 goal season!

    After the trade paperwork has been done, we can declare that Lincoln has signed his emancipation proclamation.

    When fit he was best 22 for the Cats was even looked at by Scott for their final. So not sure why people would not think he be best 22 for us if fit.
    My mate who is a Cats supporter said he is a Gun.. Although you get 10 mins out of him a season before he breaks down.
    We targeting him and Adams must think our medical department can do it.
