AFL Trades: Is there a serious suitor for Brad Crouch?

Cheers

Lol, everything from steaks to pasta man.

Got a grilled lamb rump with confit garlic mash and Swiss brown mushys on the go if your keen 😁

Gov was out when you played us, he smashes us every time we play you guys.

I think Compo should start in the second round.

Why should all other teams have to love down the draft in the all important first round because some team has done a deal, makes no sense to me.

Depends if you want to win premierships or not?
Wines is a much better player than Crouch.

He’s in pretty good form at the moment, I’d be unhappy if we accepted anything less that that

Would the crows still receive compo in that situation? I honestly don’t know?

If I was at another club I would possibly say, no draft picks or players back the other way, we might pay 650 to get the deal done.That way you really don’t lose much.

Let the AFL stump up a pick you would have normally had to pay.

If you were looking at inside mids, Wines would be number 1 on your list surely, Port obviously don’t want to lose him but in his current form he’s an 800k player still in contract, so? 1 first rounder plus a good player? It’s possible they could be tempted into trading if the price was right.

Then you would go Brayshaw, then Viney, then Crouch and I’m sure there would be someone GWS cant afford like every other year that clubs are looking at.

No one is going to give the crows a high draft pick, they might pay the reported 650+, but then they’ll know Crows will want that pick 2 badly and will use that to negotiate to a lesser pick, with limited suitors and a wealth of other players available the Crows hand isn’t strong.

First round compo should be scrapped all together and my tip is that if the Crows end up with picks 1 and 2 it probably will be, the only thing that might save it is the fact they’re last.

Costin, Prestia and Edwards are big outs.

In a way it’s good though as well, Shai Bolton has really surprised and Dusty’s gone to another level which is just good for everyone to watch.

Jack’s had to step up and lead which I reckon has helped his form.

We’ve seen what Ladhams, Sam Mayes, Georgiadis and Boyd Woodcock are capable of due to injuries, total bonus.

Maybe, but I try and be as balanced as I can, I don’t go out of my way to kill someone’s vibe or antagonise in a non-friendly way.

Still a Port supporter though 😁

Lost that year in Nam. 😂

I thought you were a Part fan DTM? huh, there you go.

Who’s your team?

Port go from pretenders to contenders in game of the year

Ha ha, yeah, I’m a chef so lost all my weekend mates a long time ago, now I have Monday/Tuesday mates, been a while since I’ve had someone to complain to other than my puppy.

Good to see the numbers improving over the border, you’ll be back in the pub for the GF fingers crossed.

I’ll still be around on Sundays to keep you all in check 😁

Just enjoying the view for now from up the top lol, I know what my teams capable of 😢

Port go from pretenders to contenders in game of the year

Mate, you just bring your negativity to every post that’s not about Richmond, you hijack articles that are clearly fan articles celebrating their team, you troll teams after they win just to kill someone’s mood.
you’d be one bloke I wouldn’t buy a beer for on this site, and I’d buy one for most.

Back under your bridge bud.

2014 bro, one kick away from the GF, don’t take that from me Yattz 😛

I kinda believe that as well, just holding my breath and waiting to see, obviously hoping that we can match it with the top end of town at the right time of year.
It’s true, we’ve been here before and the Tigers have the runs on the board, I thought it was a brilliant game on the weekend, really high quality footy, I’m glad we both brought our A-game if a little short staffed.
I feel this year we might be able to sustain it whereas previously it was almost all emotion based, now it feels professional and mature.
Pretty happy just to be mentioned with the big boys at the moment, I’m going to try and enjoy the ride 😁

Ha ha, yeah maybe, but it’s not like I’m super familiar with that feeling.

Chris Scott: Let's have footy every night

I’m not a fan, as much as I like it being fair, I want a longer season, not a shorter one, I need my footy 😊

Geelong will be top four, you were one less Esava shank kick from beating WC, you’ll be there no worries.

Port on the other hand are Port, could do anything, just holding my breath at the moment.

Can’t wait mate, unfortunately I’ll be recording it, back to work this week so won’t be able to blog…….I’ve never been able to get involved in the live blogs before, really enjoyed them, it’s almost like having mates over to watch the footy.

As much as I’d love Port to give you guys a hiding, I really want a good, hard close game of high quality footy more, hopefully it’s a ripper, you blokes are looking really good, really good. I’ll admit, didn’t think that would be the case pre-season.

Maybe, but that’s not Pablo’s point, he pops out from under his bridge, has a crack and pops back, regularly, I’m just a bit over it.

FWIW, Port had five of their best 22 out injured on the weekend, so it’s not like we were full strength either.

I’m just happy we’re finals bound after the last few years.

It feels like the whole comp is frustrated with Melbourne.

Just do something already.

No flag this year, but Melbourne are back on track
