Hub, Dogs cannot keep pick 29. When JUH is picked and they match the bid their points start from their first pick 29 then to their next and so on until they reach the points value.

Why the Crows shouldn't bid for Jamarra Ugle-Hagan with pick one

Macca, I was slightly wrong about Kemp’s back issue. He did have one but it happened in the Queensland hub. An article in the Age has quoted the club as saying they are certain he will begin training with the young players.

As far as what we do in the draft I have no idea. Will we be only looking to draft a couple of picks or maybe just 1? We also have a couple of F/S prospects in McKay & Silvagni but obviously they would only require very late picks. Do we look at picking up Henry Walsh to add to our ruck depth as we only have TDK & Pittonet or look to add more midfield/small forward prospects?

Compromise and pandemic define the 2020 AFL Draft

Just like any other team you would be reliant on your best tall defender, but we still have Jones, Marchbank if he gets his body right & Levi showed he can play down back. I would say we would be looking for another tall defender the next couple of years, but there are a few around you can pick up from other clubs.

A speculative look at the next AFL season

Pete, no excuses for Blues next year, unless they get hammered by injuries. I would rate our defence as very good & with the addition of Saad & Williams (who will play midfield but can also play back) it raises the defence to one of the best. Our midfield is getting stronger with the natural improvement of Setterfield & Walsh and also Gibbons playing more midfield. The forward line, if settled will also improve, especially if we can get Charlie back playing a lot of the season. I am looking forward to seeing DeKoning next year as I believe another pre season will see him move up to be one of the better ruckman. The big improvement in Carlton is the depth of their list. There is only a couple of players who have not yet played senior games including Kemp whom I believe will be a great utility player who can play all over the ground.

Yeah Pete, he must be feeling absolutely shattered with how he has been virtually kicked out by the Pies. With a guy who has already suffered mental health issues, has his partner and daughter moving away for a big part of the year & now part of a dispute between his new club & his old club, this could really cause major effects on him. I hope it has the opposite effect and he knuckles down to show Collingwood they were wrong to trade him.

Clubs who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it

So the Treloar trade is now in a messy stand-off between the Bulldogs & Collingwood as the Pies are claiming they never agreed to contribute $300k as part of Treloars contract. Bulldogs are saying this was part of the trade agreement and it could now cause problems for their salary cap.

Yeah, to Adelaide for pick 1.

Is it a good thing for your club to swap picks?

Win for all three clubs.

Is it a good thing for your club to swap picks?

I not sure if I would compare Eddie with John Elliott but as a Carlton supporter I regard Elliott as the worst ever AFL club President. Sure, we won a couple of premierships during his time but because of his dictatorship like role and his involvement in salary cap breaches he nearly destroyed the Carlton Football Club. You don’t need a president who is constantly attracting media attention, but one who is prepared to allow the people employed at the club to do what they are employed to do.
Plenty of people, including a lot of Carlton supporters think LoGiudice is a President that we never hear anything from, but in my opinion he has done a great job in getting Carlton back into a good financial position and now into a much better performing team.

Clubs who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it

Only saw it on a Carlton supporters Facebook page with no details of when he did it. There has been nothing in the media or on the Carlton website. The guy who posted it is pretty close to club officials so I am only going on what he said. It kept Harry out for a few months & we know what it did I to Williamson. Hopefully, if true he will recover quickly.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Carlton have picks 38, 48 & 78.

Is it a good thing for your club to swap picks?

Macca, have heard that Kemp has a stress fracture in his back. Looks like he might not be ready for the start of the season.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Thomas, it wasn’t a strategy, it was because of the financial difficulties that COVID-19. caused. The alignment between the two clubs was no longer viable and Carlton was no longer in a position where it could financially support the operations of the Northern Blues. If not for COVID the 2 clubs would still be united.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Whoever is good enough to get with whatever pick(s) we have.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Cracka, you haven’t even mentioned Tom Williamson. Saad will be playing on a back flank with Docherty on the other. If Newman is fit he will be a back pocket playing on small forwards. I would have Williamson playing on a wing (as per my above post). Walsh will be playing more midfield than on a wing.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Patella tendon injury recovery time is between 6 – 12 months depending on fitness levels. I would say Newman is a good chance to be available at the start of next season. Matthew Owies has played as a small forward in the 2’s so don’t see how you list him as a potential addition to the backline.
How you haven’t included Setterfield is astonishing. He has become a very good addition in the middle. I would definitely have Tom Williamson on a wing. He is a good mark, has great speed and a very good kick. If Charlie is playing we definitely don’t have all of Casboult, TDK & Pittonet in the team.
Gibbons had a very good 2020 season so he definitely would be in consideration & from what I have heard about Kemp’s progress through this year in getting his body fitter and stronger he will also be in the mix. The obvious improvement in Carlton’s list with players like Dow, O’Brien, Philp, Honey, Stocker, Cottrell & Jack Silvagni is we definitely have more depth. I think Fogarty has also been a very good inclusion.

Is the new Carlton line-up really all that improved?

Will be interesting how many draftees a team need to pick this year. Normally it is at least 3 but due to list changes clubs might only be drafting 1 or 2 players.

AFL phantom draft 2020: A very early top 25

Lot’s of disappointment for Magpie fans Pete. I just cannot understand the workings of your list management in the trades of the 4 players. Gave up 4 players, draft picks worth 2133 points and got back draft picks worth 1290 points & a future second round pick – that is woeful. Obviously needed a salary dump but to make it public means other clubs are going to offer you a lot less than you would expect.

Nathan Buckley's position may no longer be tenable

Don’t think so James. I have heard that because of the first rounders & future first round picks they have traded the past couple of years they need 2 first round picks this year & can’t offer a future first unless they get another first round pick or a future first round pick.

AFL Trades: Is it Bulldogs or bust for Adam Treloar?

Bulldogs will want at least one future first which Bombers can’t offer at the moment until they get another first or future first round pick. Carlton have offered them one of either for Saad but obviously want something better back than what Essendon have offered.

AFL Trades: Is it Bulldogs or bust for Adam Treloar?

I think the Saad deal is what Essendon need done before they can do Dunkley. They cannot offer up a future first, which is what the Bulldogs will want until they get another first or future first round pick. So if they don’t do the Saad deal they will have to swap one of their first round picks for a future first.

Stix, players can nominate their contract deals in the PSD but pretty sure they can’t in the National draft.

AFL player movement set to ramp up

Well then let it happen I hope. You can keep a player who doesn’t want to be there and pay him what contract money & length he wants. I personally don’t care if we don’t get Saad for just pick 9 and nothing back. We can use it to draft another young talent. Even better if he goes into the PSD & North Melbourne pick him up & Essendon get nothing.

AFL trades: Future clear for Hogan and Brown, not so Treloar

How do they force him to sit out the year? If he goes into the PSD clubs before Essendon might pick him if they agree to his contract demands. If Essendon pick him in the PSD then they have to agree to his demands.

AFL trades: Future clear for Hogan and Brown, not so Treloar

Saad is not a contracted player and has stated he doesn’t want to play at Essendon. As I said there is always the possibility he goes into the PSD nominating what contract he wants and then Essendon gets nothing. If they tried to get him in the PSD they would have to agree with the amount and length of his contract request. Essendon will get pick 8 from Carlton but we will want something back, likely a second round pick.
