Macca, I am confident Walsh is a lock for us at pick 1 unless SOS was able to do an insane trade of that pick that netted us 3 picks in the top ten. I think the Blues will be looking to get some more big bodied mature midfielders with our later picks or through the Rookie draft.

Perhaps they might look at a Mitch Grigg if he was available or delisted players like Bugg, Freeman, Weller etc. With 4 spots available on the senior list and 3 on the Rookie list there is enough room to get some speculative pick ups. I doubt there will be much talent left with our late picks which I think will be used for F/S or some speculative picks.

Macca is just summarising what we started with and ended with without going into actual specifics of each trade.

Won’t be Barlow Macca, Just read he is returning to Werribee as playing assistant coach.

SportsFan, I am sure the club did due diligence on his knee and will back new performance manager Andrew Russell to get his body right.

It’s interesting that Max King is coming off a knee reco yet is still seen as a top 5 prospect. Sometimes you just have to take the chance.

Macca, that means we have 4 spots available on the Senior list. I think SOS is leaving enough spots open in case he trades pick 1 for multiple picks. Otherwise he might have his eye on some delisted players eg, Barlow.
They have also invited Lamb to continue training with the Blues so might pick him up as a Rookie.

What compensation pick Andrew?

AFL Trade Wrap Day 8: Tom Scully, Steven May, Tim Kelly and more

Probably has stronger ties to Melbourne than Western Sydney though MF. Born in Albury he was a Boarder at Caulfield Grammar and played for the Sandringham Dragons. Has family and friends in Melbourne.

I would rather stay a Cat than play for the Dockers – wow. From a guy desperate to get back home to WA that’s a kick in the guts.

Geez I hate this no edit ability. Carlton got nothing for Waite and he ended up playing 4 years at the Roos.

Macca, the AFL website is reporting that Sydney will be involved in the McGovern deal. As I predicted a couple of weeks ago we will swap our 2 second round picks to Sydney for their first round pick which will then be given to Adelaide with the mature age pick as well. I think it is slightly overs so hopefully we get a later pick back.
Also saying that Fasolo will be signed tomorrow.

AFL Trade Wrap Day 3: Dylan Shiel, Scott Lycett, Chad Wingard and more

If he can overcome his injury history I think he will be a good fit in Carlton’s midfield and same with Kennedy. They both will provide good support to Cripps as they can both play an inside/outside midfield role. There will be some outside speed with Dow and Fisher and if we pick up Walsh with pick 1 I think Carlton will have a young midfield developing together that will be a strength in the coming years.

Macca, I think both clubs will be keen to get a deal for McGovern done early as they both have other deals they will want to do.

Mitch McGovern is a different deal to Bryce Gibbs

People can go on about what he is and isn’t worth. At the end of the day it comes down to what both clubs agree to. IMO Carlton’s pick 1 won’t be involved unless the Blues are looking to get picks back from Adelaide for other deals. The Crows will try to get what they can and Carlton will try to give as little as possible. They will meet somewhere in the middle.

What I do think is that this trade will get done early as both clubs especially Adelaide have other more important targets. The Crows will be doing all they can to be able to pick up Lukosius and Rankine in the draft. I think their best bet is trying to get Gold Coasts pick 2 because I am certain if Carlton keep pick 1 they will take Walsh.

I think Gold Coast would be keen to get the King brothers which they could do with pick 3 and Adelaide’s first pick. They of course could do it with 2 & 3 but maybe could be enticed with getting Adelaide’s 2 first round picks and a player.

It’s certainly going to be an intersting trade period.

Mitch McGovern is a different deal to Bryce Gibbs

Totally agree with you JamesH. I think any trade for McGovern will involve one of our second rounders and a mature player pick. Adelaide need to deal with Gold Coast to get their second pick as Carlton will take Walsh.

Macca, I haven’t seen enough of Walsh play to say how good he is or will be, only what’s been written about him from people in the know. From what I have seen written he is regarded as a rare talent and a future star who will be ready to play round 1 next season. Shiel is a good player but I would just hate passing over a potential star in Walsh and see another club get the benefits of his talent.

Sorry Sammy but I don’t think pick 1 will be part of any deal for McGovern. At best the offer will be the 2 second round picks plus a mature pick. The 2 second rounders points wise are worth around the same value as pick 9 which is a fair offer for McGovern. I think Adelaide should try to do a deal with Gold Coast to get pick 2 as Carlton will certainly take Walsh with pick 1.
Macca, I know you are keen to get Shiel and I believe his preference at the moment is Hawthorn but he is meeting with the Blues tomorrow so hopefully we can convince him to be a Blue.
My preference is to keep pick 1 for Walsh and perhaps offer up next years first rounder to GWS. I like the idea of getting Barlow in for a couple of years, especially if we don’t get Shiel.

Sorry Cam cannot agree with you. As a neutral I thought it was great grand final, as is any grand final that the result is not certain with 30 seconds remaining. Sure the skills were not perfect but that is the pressure of a close match and a grand final.

.The 1970 grand final is widely regarded as one of the best (for a Carlton supporter anyway) yet is was a game of two halves – the first dominated by Collingwood and the second by Carlton. It was more about the comeback from 44 points down that made it a classic.

Yesterday’s game looked like it could have been all over at the 20 minute mark of the first quarter but the Eagles clawed back and made it a classic. With 5 minutes to go I was thinking a draw was on the cards but 5 points is close enough. Well done to both teams.

A close grand final does not a classic make

Not only was my Dad a mad Collingwood fan Pete but my mum is a mad Richmond fan – plenty of fun in our household in the 60’s and 70’s. That’s the reason I am not supporting the Pies on Saturday because they really upset my 93 year old Mum.
The reason I ended up a Blues supporter is that Dad used to take me to Collingwood games when I was very young but gave up as all I used to do was wander off into the crowds at Vic Park. I ended up going to Carlton games with my Uncle, Aunt and cousins and the rest is history.

Fat Toad, Goal umpires have always made a call when the Boundary Umpire is not able to. You may say it was out as all Collingwood supporters do but at the end of the day it was not called out. Did it effect the end result – no one can say as there was still 10 – 15 minutes left. A boundary throw-in changes everything that happened after that incident. Carlton might have kicked 5 more goals or Collingwood might have sneaked a win. As you said the cup sits at Ikon Park.

I was in attendance at the 1970 Grand final with my dad who was a mad Collingwood supporter. I had never seen him so happy as he was at half time but so dejected after the final siren. One of my memories was the four elderly Carlton female supporters sitting in front of me clutching their Rosary Beads. Perhaps it was their prayers that got us over the line. It was one of the greatest days of my life.

As for the 1979 Grand Final I had moved to Brisbane and was playing in a Preliminary Final the same day. We lost the game but myself and a couple of other Carlton supporters headed to the club rooms instead of the change rooms to watch the last 15 minutes of the game – I don’t think our Coach was impressed when we returned to the change rooms smiling. Oh and Pete the ball was in. The boundary umpire might not have been in the area but the goal umpire was in perfect position to make a call.

I have fortunately never experienced a Grand Final loss to Collingwood and hopefully that remains for whatever time I am alive on this planet. I don’t have the dislike for Collingwood as a lot of Carlton supporters do, but sorry Pete I will be cheering for the Eagles this Saturday. Whatever the result all Collingwood supporters should be proud of their season.

So I am assuming they also rejected Brisbane’s application as well.

AFL rejects Carlton and Gold Coast priority pick requests

I still see this as a deal that should get done Macca and it benefits both clubs. Currently Sydney’s first round pick is 11 but will fall to 12 with the Lynch compensation pick. If somone nominates Blakey before pick 8 (I think Brisbane might) then pick 12 does not have enough points and they would have to use points from their second round pick which then falls back. With Carlton’s 2 second round picks they have more points to work with. Carlton then get another first round pick to trade for a McGovern/Setterfield. This could all change though if priority picks are handed out to Carlton and GC and where those picks are situated.

Sydney are set to turn Dan Hannebery's departure into a big win

So Doran you are picking some players not on form but because you think they would be better if they played in a top side and not a bottom side or if they had played every game and not missed games because of injury. Patrick Cripps played in the bottom side yet you haven’t included him despite him being a top 5 Brownlow contender. You picked Nankervis in the ruck ahead of Gawn & Grundy – the 2 standout ruckmen. You pick Shaun Grigg as the second ruck because he plays that position for a Richmond – not because he is a good ruckman. I could go on and on but it would end up being longer than your article. This side would not get within 20 goals of the real All Australian side.
