Andrew Gaff - RFA


#161

How’s it tragic?


#162

The sister died if I recall. Hit them both hard.


#163

ok.


#164

Too soon!


#165

Happened just before their draft years, similar to Francis. Not sure how Luke managed to deal with moving interstate tbh, much respect for the man


#166

Was hit by a motorcycle at 17.

That is really tragic.


#167

Back on topic.
Gaff would be another quality midfielder to add to the roster.
You would just hope Wet Toast would not match the contract and force a trade if he chooses us.

Player recruitment, is where we need to put up some decent onfield performances, to entice players to choose Essendon ahead of other Melbourne clubs.


#168

He’ll put a line through us after we get done by 100 Thursday


#169

Thursday night is going to be fun i will be switching over to the world cup after west coast kick their 5th straight from a bullshit free.


#170

Eagles will be at their flat track bullies best


#171

That’s way off


#172

Didn’t he support the Demons?


#173

Would love to see us do another Goddard like swoop on Gaff. Whoosa will be a key element if we are even in the mix. Coached him for his first 3 season. Fingers crossed they had a great relationship.


#174

I’ve definitely come around to the Gaff idea. I’m in the camp that we need outside runners more than we need inside mids.


#175

Out of the “very unlikely but still realistic” scenarios, the dream would be to get Gaff and Wallis RFA. The problem is WCE are likely to force a trade for Gaff, so I think realistically if we wanted him we’d have to give up our first rounder.

I’d do it, but I can imagine a lot wouldn’t. But if you used our 1st to get Gaff, got Wallis as a RFA, you’d have to argue the midfield is pretty much sorted inside & outside, given we hope for further development from McGrath, Stringer, Parish, Langford, Clarke, Mutch, Mynott, and Begley. Zaharakis to return.

You’d then spend the rest of our picks on a tall KPF, small forward, and probably a small back.


#176

If they force trade probably want more than just the one pick.

1st and Colyer + other picks as required perhaps


#177

no we want the trade to be successful


#178

We have been after this guy for a long long long time


#179

Would fit our age demographic perfectly and is a class act.

I would give up our first pick for him in a heartbeat!


#180

Yep i’d give up our first rounder too
