l saw a headline from Purple Head in his shifting doors or whatever it is called, bout how if we expect the Dawks to be quiet during this trade period, then we should… but that is as far as l got, l refuse to read that useless ■■■■’s column. Maybe someone else read and can be bothered to enlighten me. Anyway l saw this summary on the AFaiL site…
In: Jarman Impey, picks 43, 68, 75
Out: Luke Hodge, picks 34, 44, 62, 2018 fourth-round pick
Lose: Not much, considering Hodge was going to retire
2017 draft picks: 43, 68, 75, 81, 99
What couldn’t they get done? An improved draft hand. After trading pick No.33 as part of the Impey trade, the Hawks set about rebuilding their standing in the draft. Billy Hartung didn’t find a new home.
Nathan Schmook’s verdict: Aside from helping champion Luke Hodge make his way to the Lions and securing Jarman Impey early in the Trade Period, the Hawks were happy to put their feet up after the drama of 12 months ago. Briefly linked to Josh Schache and Anthony Miles, the big play many expected never eventuated and they were one of the least active clubs. They’ll enter the draft at pick No.43, a lot earlier than last year.
It made me wonder how they managed to get a 6 / 10. Theories? It looks to me like they were simply treading water, so they should rate no higher than a 5.
