See, I saw that and thought Adelaide were the ones that wouldn’t take that, as Cameron is the only one who has actually done something at senior level. If they do a swap of picks, we will be the ones getting the worst one back.
Well, yes and no.
For the last 2 years we have been screaming for the club to be ruthless and get rid of ■■■■ that don’t for the line.
Maybe this is the club being ruthless, and it’s just beginning. Maybe they’ve had a gutful like us?
Rory Sloane is 4 years and 10 mths younger than Brendon Goddard.
BJ just came second in the Crichton
Sloane’s age is fine
Perhaps th e desird to land the three sss has prompted the club to explore all alternative ways of facilitating the desired outvome, and have concluded, that to keep then"cost" to managable proportions, something had to “give” ???
Sloane is a legit star and exactly what our midfield needs. If a Francis for Sloane straight swap was available you would take it and run
But I can’t imagine Adelaide wanting to let him go
Jesus Christ that’s ambitious
I was being humorous.
Unfortunately if EFC want’s to get the 3 S’s then something has to give.
We cannot realistically expect to maintain our current list and add these 3 without giving something up somewhere and that will probably lead to some unpopular decisions
Way overhyped by certain people on here.
This year’s draft picks and next year’s draft picks.
It’s hardly difficult to get something done.
Not sure they want to play with next years picks.
Yep, always seem to have similar views to you as to in regards to players. I wanted Frang and Oliver that year and was wrapped we got him. Has all the makings of a superstar.
How many just turned 20 year old key position defenders have shown more??? Thats the thing, KP defenders take time to develop & are hard to find. Jake Lever is a stand out as far as younger key defenders go & he will command a massive trade to secure. Those 5 minute cameos are whats possible for longer IF we can get him fit. If you can name a few players from the last 2 drafts you think have bigger potential upside I’ll consider them but for mine right now, Francis looks the most talented young KP on our list & the best prospect we’ve got to replace Hurley in a few years or best case scenario replace Hartley &/or Ambrose from next year. After him its Ridley or bust & Francis I believe has clearly shown more elite potential at this stage. IF we somehow are being offered a good trade then absolutely we need to weigh it up but I have no doubt right now that opposition clubs are sniffing a potential bargain not expecting to pay a good price.
Lets see, Hooker, Hurley, Joe, Need I go on?
In other words by the time season 2018 rolls around, Sloane would be about the same age BJ was when he arrived. Not too old at all.
Talk of a three way trade between is ADElaide and Brisbane. Essentially we’d get Brisbane’s pick 17 for Francis.
The problem being Francis now doesn’t have any injury issues. We took him at pick 6 and its now a waste of 2 years whereby we could have developed anyone else. The Crows are getting a fresh ready made player better than Lever. That sux and so does this thread.
Hooker, Hurley & Joe have just turned 20?
Oh boy you guys are in dangerous territory.
