Three big winners from the trade period

I don’t think St Kilda won the trade period, if you think about it their list lacks for A-Grade talent, and they didn’t really bring in anyone of consequence, but they paid a high price for it in terms of draft picks and the like.

Great comment mate, I don’t doubt the stress of being in the Melbourne Bubble would be immense, particularly as a father-son selection like Daniher. Additionally, I think Daniher is someone who needs to get enjoyment out of footy rather than viewing it as a job like you or I would view it. I also would recommend people have a look at Adam Trealoars interview on AFL 360 a few months back about the stress and anxiety of being a professional footballer.

I think the issue that played out in the Daniher trade is that Harley encouraged Daniher to go public and he did which created an environment for Sydney to be seen to be doing something when they really have no compunction about waiting a yeaar and picking Joey up in free agency.

Yep the Swans should’ve offered someone like a McCartin or Reid, they’re not integral to the rebuild but they’re more of a like for like swap.

yeah but the thing about Baseball particularly major league baseball is there is a vast difference between the haves and the have nots in Baseball.

I like the cut of your jib, American sports are not in good nick.

I think the thing about the saints is they took a bold posture that may or may not pay off for them, if they don’t make finals for the next two years I reckon they’ll be in trouble.

AFL Trades 2019 report card: Every club graded

I do appreciate some of your ideas, I particularly think the on-trading of players who don’t want to move is a good idea. However, it would require some effort such as the player already needing to qualify as a free agent or earn above a certain amount (which would assist with clubs like the Pies who want to off load cap space). But I also think the trade period is far too long.

How to improve the AFL trade period

An Interesting take, I think people are a bit harsh on the recruitment people at Geelong, my biggest issue has been the combativeness of Chris Scott as an individual. I think Geelong are in desperate need of a mobile big man, and a more sustainable forward half as Gary Ablett, Gary Rohan and co went missing in the second half of last yeaar.
