    The top 3 guys in terms of trade value would be Judd, Pavlich and Riewodlt, but after the second half of his year, I think Pavlich may have edged out a bit in front of those two.


    Jonathon Brown would be next a bit of a way back, but not much.

    Other guys right up there.

    Adam Goodes, Chris Tarranat, Matthew Lloyd, Matthew Scarlett, Paul Hasleby, Warren Tredrea would make up the rest of the top 10 in no particular order.

    Joel Smith is an All-Australian. Would you give up Polak for him?

    Who would know? It would depend so much on what a club wanted and had to trade with.

    I wouldn't have thought an aging forward who can't lift his arms above his head or get off the ground, no matter how great he used to be, would have been worth a #4 pick (which luckily turned out to be #2) - but he was to Adelaide. Or that Trent Croad (even then) was worth a #1 pick, but Fremantle had top picks everywhere and it was worth it to them.

    It's all in the timing and the circumstances.

    it would have to be out of Jonathon Brown, Pavlich, Lloyd, Tredrea, Goodes u would think...
    Lloyd - the best full forward by a long way and with key position forwards worth a lot currently.
    Tredrea - ditto as to lloyd, best CHF - a position in demand
    Brown - has the potential to dominate at CHF and very young
    Pavlich - loads of potential
    Riewoldt - highly rated

    performance is worth more than potential imo, so it would be a toss up between Lloyd and tredrea, and KPP more valuable than midfielders.

    What?

    Anyway...
    Ive always said KPP are worth far more than that of midfielders (hence the Croad,McPharlin for Mitchell and Hodge arguement), but if your going to name young Midfielders surely Haselby's name would be right up their.

    What does his trade value have to do with where he plays his footy?

    I think he is talking about the hype surrounding him.

    I still disagree with it. Not all football journalists reside in Victoria. You wouldn't have a Victorian journalist claiming Luke McPharlin to be the best footballer to leave Hawthorn, would you? That sort of hype would (and has) only come out of Western Australia, the state he is playing in.

    Players can be equally hyped in any of the traditional football states - ie Vic, WA, SA.

    I disagree. Players in Vic get a fair bit more media exposure.

    Rance is too old to have such a high trade value, ditto Dusty and Gawn. The rest I agree with. Would also add Whitfield and Coniglio into that conversation.

    Cripps or Grundy for mine.

    Best young mid in the comp who can also play KPF.
    24 year old Ruckman who is easily top 2 in the league (arguably 1st) and is great on the ground/tackles

    Grundy was average in the GF, that will bring his trade value down a bit.

    Clayton Oliver or Josh Kelly - would give up anything for either of them. Next tier would include the likes of Cripps, and Bont etc.

    I dunno about Grundy's trade value.


    He's the player in the comp I'd most covet in our colours.

    Rucks tend to get injured a lot from the constant collisions, and I think maybe the younger you start the bigger the risk later.

    I hope he can outlast Sandilands and play as long as he wants, but I think there'd be just a little concern how his body, particularly his knees, will hold up.

    I'd still pay two first rounders easily, but maybe not as much for as for an Oliver or a Cripps. Of course their not without injury risk either.
