Now that is the genuine rort of the Draft system (along with Father – Son). No discounts allowed. Pay the full price or get out of the way.

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

I’ve done a fair bit of fishing (baiting hooks in the main) 😁 !

McGovern? Does he still have value? Maybe a club could lure Jeremy if they have Mitch?

What if a deal can’t be done? No trade (and nobody will be moving anywhere).

So the compensation should be same regardless of ladder position?

Would have to be a Victorian club for Wines. They have those jam donuts at games that he obviously loves so much!
He is a late first at best!

What if agreement can’t be reached? Does that player then go to the Draft? Can he nominate a ridiculous salary that circumvents the system (ie: the Jack Martin fiasco – at the very least player salaries should be evened out to prevent that from occuring again)?

Not for mine – no mid season trades.
Compensation would be the issue, as would the issues of the better performed clubs getting even better and the poorly performed clubs getting worse. How many people will attend or watch Sydney v Adelaide if the few quality players they each have move to the higher clubs?
Should Bontempelli be allowed to go to Richmond this week? Bulldogs are average and Richmond could use a bit extra in the midfield at the moment. What is the price? How do Richmond fit someone like Bont (or the Crouch boys) under the salary cap (surely that is extended to its fullest)?
What would Adelaide get as compensation if it allowed the Crouch boys to leave mid season? When would they get that compensation?
Too many ifs, buts and maybes!

Is that not a closed fist?
Hilarious – YES (and he did it a few times). “Pingable” – NO!

Crows ruckman somehow doesn't get pinged for this hilarious 'handball'

Yep. Just needs a contract somewhere around $700K (or old salary cap) to get that pick deal done (otherwise Adelaide will almost certainly match the deal).
I suspect that both of the Crouch boys are going to be let go.

1 is a tournament run by, and a decision taken by the ICC. The other is a tournament run by, and a decision taken by the BCCI. 1 tournament will have spectators travelling from around the world. The other will have a handful of locals (including ex pat locals) attending. They are managed and operated differently and have a different appeal!

Why have the ICC postponed the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2021?

Hmmmmm! Whilst I agree that the ICC bows to the wishes of the BCCI on almost every issue I am not sure that you can point the finger on this occasion.
Isn’t the 2021 World Cup in India scheduled for October / November? That is over 1 year away and things may change before then. Plenty of time to still cancel that event, but now would be the time to ensure appropriate planning is in place in the possible event that the tournament goes ahead.
March in NZ on the other hand is a lot riskier as it is just a little over 6 months away. The fact that NZ is Covid free is good for them, but the rest of the world (players, officials and spectators) needs to travel into NZ to watch and their borders are currently closed. They have been talking about travel bubbles for months now with the Cooke Islands a possibility (don’t think they are playing good enough cricket to participate yet though 😁 ). With the relatively high infection rates around the world (including amongst the cricket playing nations) I doubt NZ will be in a rush to ease the necessary restructions ( 😂). The time for planning that event is running short. I am sure NZ will be looked after … eventually … when the time is right.
The real issue for Australia is the scheduling and timing of the IPL (and the women’s IPL Exhibition Games). All Australians should be withdrawn forthwith!

Dixon is a serial offender when it comes to goal kicking. That is why his goals per game average is sub par!

He doesn’t have to holler for a battery either! Boom Tish!

With all of these controversies around Collingwood perhaps they should go on a camp? I think I know someone they can talk to. 😂

Collingwood again on the wrong side of the AFL and its minions

Yeh Nah … but thanks anyway for sharing!

Not that I am aware of (Chris Davies).

I hope Port keeps Dixon 😊
His value will be limited due to the fact he will be 30 before the finals are played this year. Old and big do not normally spell longevity (and he has been injury prone throughout his career). He only averages 1.6 goals per game as well.
He would be neither restricted nor unrestricted due to his early days at Gold Coast (just 5 years at Port). His best hope would be signing on for a year or 2 at Port for similar money ($600-650K pa If memory serves me).

Stephen Marshall is a Port Fan!!! Sheesh! You can just make it up apparently!
Port has been receiving handouts from both sides of politics for years! They were even gifted $50K a couple of years back because the trains were late.

The Premier of SA and the Leader of the Opposition are both Port Supporters (and their predecessors were as well), as are many other senior members of both parties!
Whilst the SA Govt is now showing some interest (at least publicly anyway) the issue is that they declined the offer of a Hub earlier in the season and that will cost SA when deciding the GF venue! I have no issue with that.

Yep! Melbourne looks OK against the rubbish teams but will continue to struggle against the average and the good!

Goodwin's Demons back in finals hunt

Thailand?

Wayward Lions leave Fagan at a loss

See above. Research what last touch rule actually is!

Umpiring in 2020: Why are we getting angry and how can we fix it?

It still is (amongst those who know)!

No.
