Trade Discussion 2018/19 - I am Coniglio, I need TPP for my Bunghole!


#7732

Not sure we are the ones to get them early picks in the draft!


#7733

Nick Shipley another, Big midfielder who is averaging 27 touches and 7 tackles a game in the 2nds, Bonar, Hately and Green coming he’s no chance to get a gig.

Token pick worth the gamble IMO.


#7734

Key words “says Garry Lyon”


#7735

Premiership captain?


#7736

but he also was actually what we were looking for at some stage. we had him run a training session with us not long after 2016 suspensions were handed down. so I guess we’d identified him as a potential Jobe replacement.


#7737

Hypothetical mid season trade…

Richmond get: Cale Hooker
Essendon get: Richmond 2019 1st rounder

Would you do it?


#7738

■■■■ no.


#7739

unfortunately in some aspects, who do people actually see any established names replacing in the coaches side at present, other than getting another a grader, who surely we don’t have the space for ?

All things being equal, essentially bags and probably zaka’s spot should be the only 2 up for grabs next season.
Zaka’s won’t be cos he’s a good little essendon boy.
bags will probably retire this year or be moved on.

So that leaves 1 spot, for which you already have how many on the list that we still don’t know if they are able to move into that spot.
Begley
mynott
lav
langford
clarke
mozzie
etc etc

the only are we probably need to look at is tall defenders in the sense that hooker and hurley are nearing the end. but we already do have 2 guys in the wings working on the craft in francis and thatcher, but if hurley and hooker both retire those 2 come into the senior side and we have no back up.


#7740

I know that Gown plays both back and forward. But yes we probably need one more for depth.


#7741

Both contracted, but I’d be after Zurhaar* and Brander.

Or I’d trade one of the usual suspects with a second round for a first round.
And if we don’t get quality for Parish I will spew.

Edit: As to whether I’d trade Hooker, I’d wait 'til the end of the year and make a decision. Definitely wouldn’t rule it out.
You’d hope by the end of the year we’d have a better idea on Brown/Stewart/Gown/Daniher/Zerk/Hateley, too.

*#11 in the rookie draft. Talk about kissed on the ■■■■.
Absolute gun, could go midfield but shouldn’t have to. Would be even better if Wood wasn’t such a selfish prick.


#7742

Ryder anyone? lol

A few more names that are less controversial
Lewis Pierce (Saints)
Ladhams (Port)
Frampton (Port)
Hayes (Port)
Darcy Cameron (Sydney)
Sean Darcy (Freo)
Lloyd Meek (Freo)
Scott Jones (Freo)

Personally I like the 3 from Port as good backup options


#7743

Nah - but if we had lost to Carlton last week I reckon I would have considered it.


#7744

I reckon Darcy would be the one I’d look at for best 22 at afl level ruck play.

But just thinking… if STK are that fkd that they’d prefer Goldstein at 31 to Marshall (aka proto-grundy) at 23… 2nd rounder for Marshall?


#7745

Darcy, I think will be the pick of the pure rucks, but I’m confident Draper will have him covered so I’d be looking for a guy who can play as a backup Ruck to Bellch/Drapes but then offer some quality forward play as well making him a more versatile option for us. Freo wouldn’t want to give him up with Sandilands about to retire.

If we wanted a short term option who might provide an upgrade on Zac Clarke then I’d be going after Pierce, who is behind Marshall, Longer with the Saints considering both Goldstein and Ryder.

Sam Hayes is the one I’d be hunting as future option, Eastern Rangers boy from the 2017 crop so he would have played a lot of footy with Mynott as well as Clarke and Begley. Was considered the top ruckman and a likely top 15 pick before plummeting into the 40s, 203cm, quality tap ruckman who kicks goals when forward. The only drawback would be he’d take 12-18months before being an AFL option and is currently suffering a bout of Glandular fever. Port also have a lot of 200cm ruck/forward options on their list atm.

Riley Bowman would be another good pick for the future imo, good mover, good skills and can could be developed in each third of the ground. Hasn’t looked out of place in the VFL which is a good sign for a 19yo ruck.


#7746

What’s the knock on Billy Longer? Was a pick 5 for Brisbane and had a period for the saints where he was getting big hitout stats in his 4th and 5th year in the AFL. Has just turned 26 so coming into the prime of his career.


#7747

Longer gets some good tap numbers but does nothing around the ground.


#7748

He’s a beauty. Would love him in the Red and Black.


#7749

Sier & Marshall or Frampton would be a very handy trade period in my opinion. Inside midfielder and ruckman who can play forward. All of them are out of contract too.


#7750

Talk of Marshall or Zurhaar is really being optimistic in my book.

If I were St Kilda and North, I’d be making sure neither of them move.

Sier might be a chance at this moment, but Wells, Varcoe, Beams, Pendlebury, Sidebottom are no spring chickens and they wouldn’t be letting young mids go. Pendlebury was 2005 draft.


#7751

Depending on how Dylan Clarke and Darcy Parish play out the remainder of the season, we may not need to chase someone like Sier.
