So, uh, North picked up a guy who got drafted by GWS at no. 7 in 2014 ... for pick 69. He had/has two knee recos, but still!

This is a very strange trade season indeed. What's the next bargain? Sydney decides it's time for Buddy to move on to Brisbane and accepts a literal pack of steak knives in return?

I reckon we're a few seasons away from that becoming not a joke but reality. I reckon management people will be starting to talk like "yes, we could win a flag by 2019 ... but it is not a guarantee and we are better off trading Zach Merrett away now and focus on being in a strong position in 2027"

One of the other strange things in this Trade Period is how some AFL players are being 'shopped' around but with no result. Seemingly little interest in Hartlett, Lobbe, Motlop, Rockliff and so on ...

Everyone is wary of Motlop because the difference between his best and worst is cavernous and he is terribly inconsistent. Personally I hope we keep him because he can win games on his own, maybe just needs his peers to tell him to pull his socks up a bit.

Ted Richards' younger brother has now requested a trade.

Boomer has finalised his 2017... North Heidelberg, div 2 of the Northern Football League, third best metro league in the state. 😳

I would have liked Motlop at Richmond - gosh, he can be good.

It's only 11:30 and it has been a fucking insane day. Jordan Lewis is a fucking Melbourne Demon, and all they gave up was PICKS 48 AND 66.

I hope Essendon snags O'Meara from under the Hawks' nose. I am fucking love the schadenfreude.

What the actual fuck. I'm seriously confused why Hawthorn aren't trying to at least get a bit more for these superstars. It's one thing to be willing to move them on and not insist upon receiving something equal in return, but both the Eagles and the Dees would have surely been quite happy to give up some random fringe player - who may turn out to be brilliant at the Hawks, especially given their track record of getting much more out of players than previous clubs were able.

After three premierships I think they can afford to take massive risks like these, the membership would understand I think.

So arguably the most straightforward deal of this TP, Hibberd to Melbourne, finally gets done. Essendon get picks 29 and 68.

I hate this.

Did the AFL seriously allow Geelong to use a future round first pick (they were out of allocations?) to get Tuohy? Fuck's sake, this pathetic organisation.
