Jake Stringer - Nominates Essendon


#8215

We’re going to have to offer something to help Gordon save a bit of face. Maybe a player from somewhere to muddy the waters around the value, maybe a pick from next year to allow him to talk up the better hand they have in next year’s draft. It will all be about making it appears to be a better deal for the dogs than the 11 deal was. This is what happened with the Carlisle deal where Bains could walk away saying “I didn’t just hand over 5”, and Dodoro could say “I got 5”.

Is there a way we can get a Kennedy or Schache, or some other player (Aaron Hall?) to the dogs along with some picks? I think that’s the way forward


#8216

Play the welfare card already


#8217

I am sure it is being played, just not publicly - the threat of it should hopefully be enough. No need to go full nuclear unless you have to.


#8218

■■■■ it go scorched earth with the dogs. Those parasites think they’re sapient.


#8219

Motlop compo could throw a spanner in the works ‘cause if it’s an end of first round there’s talk Geelong will bundle 19,20 and ask for Richmond’s 15 which they’ll hand to the Dogs.

Of course, if as Connors says Stringer wants Essendon that should count for something but who knows? Feels like a 50:50 proposition at the moment.


#8220

I don’t think it is 50/50.


#8221

Maybe we need to use Dogs and Suns in the trade.

Suns: Out: Saad, Hall In: 29, Ess 2018 Second Rounder, Lukas Webb
Dogs: Out: Stringer In: Hall, 24
Essendon: Out: 24,29, 2018 Second Rounder

  1. GC cannot afford to lose Hall.
  2. no one wants to move to the GC Suns. Thats the biggest problem. Its why the Ablett deal is stuck. Why we have to deal a pick for Saad.

#8223

could Schache be part of the stringer deal?

picks to Brisbane
schache to dogs
stringer to dons


#8224

Not yet


#8225

Nuclear, its pronounced nuclear…
Nuclear


#8226

which I hear is bad, real bad, like so bad


#8227

Woah, hold on there.
I’m becoming intimidated by your intelligence.


#8228

I highly doubt it, You win some you lose some. Its about time that fat pr.ck swallows his pride. Particularly after his poor handling of the situation


#8229

What can I say, I was in a meeting, they showed me stuff and let me tell… actually I can’t tell you all of it, hang on maybe I can… yeah well there is an island… and that is in the middle of water… so very hard to get to and then things go bad, so wrong, just bad… and then it causes all these problems… so yeah

I don’t want you to be intimidated… I’m just one of the people… talking in circles and nonsense…


#8230

with the dogs getting crozier i think they will soften their stance on stringer


#8231

Doubtful


#8232

Stringer apparently met with his manager and Atkins today. I’m sure its nothing, but imagine if Adelaide swooped with p 16


#8233

lol imagine of the Crows offer pick 10 for him.


#8234

Strange though because on Trade Radio Cooney said Stringer was in Queensland I think atm?
