#1771

Is he ever coming back?


#1772

FWIW, Hocking is wearing #10 this year…


#1773

That’s a really bad sign


#1774

Wonder if Crows would take Francis+pick for Sloane?


#1775

Yeah, there were plenty of free choices which posed no threat of a clash (e.g. 1).


#1776

Why would hocking be wearing 10?

I mean, there’s only one answer. Because Francis isn’t coming back. But I just hope there’s another reason


#1777

Gotta be joking?


#1778

Seconds players usually wear numbers 50 and above.

Wearing #10 today means three-fifths of five-eighths of…


#1779

I think @CJohns was saying in his podcast that Francis is still working hard with his personal trainer, and just taking time away from the club.


#1780

Bloke turns 28 at the start of the 2019 season a late first round pick is just abour right imo plus if he decides to pick Essendon then we have pretty good leverage.


#1781

Not nearly fit enough


#1782

Would you take Pick 19 for Hooker? Different positions but both previous AA and integral to each team.

This is a club that was forced to wait an entire year to improve their offer to Carlton to 2x first rounders or there abouts for Gibbs
We’d want more and so will they.


#1783

Crows wouldn’t take 2019 first+Francis?

We lost quite a few players for unders the last few times it’s now our turn to get some back.


#1784

Francis has zero trade value. You need to understand this.


#1785

I know he’s the steak knives


#1786

hey adelaide want a pick around 10? also heres this kid thats played a handfull of senior games.

you live in ■■■■■■■ la la land.


#1787

Short answer, no.

It’s hard to conceive for us when we know how much talent he has but he doesn’t hold value. I understand Port had some eyes for him but had nothing but pick #364654 to offer after prioritising other trades ie; Watts.

Hard to know he’s that undervalued when you consider things like that banana goal in the VFL after bursting through tackles on the boundary. I truly hope he finds some peace or management plan for himself both for his personal sake and for the sake of the football world getting to see such potential even partially reached and realising what a talent they mocked/missed out on.
