Not sure I'd call Freo one of the bigger winners. The Freo fans I know are very upset about Weller.

Anyway. What a fucking insane last hour. I have absolutely no idea why they insist on dragging this out over two weeks given 90% of the deals get done in the last hour.

So happy we've got Ablett back

Summary.....

ADELAIDE
IN Pk12, Pk39, Gibbs, Gibson
OUT Lever, Wigg, Pk16, Cameron

BRISBANE
IN Pk18, Hodge, Cameron, Pk25, Pk40
OUT Rockliff, Pk12, Scache

CARLTON
IN Pk10, Lobbe, Kennedy, Lang
OUT Gibbs, Pk28, Pk58

ESSENDON
IN Smith, Pk24 Saad, Stringer
OUT Pk11, Pk25, Pk30

FREMANTLE
IN Pk40, Pk66, Wilson, Pk2, Matera
OUT Weller, Balic, Crozier, Pk41

GEELONG
IN Ablett, Pk24
OUT Pk19, Lang, Motlop

GOLD COAST
IN Weller, Wigg, Young, Pk41, Pk19
OUT Saad, Matera, Ablett, Pk24

GWS
IN Pk28, Pk57, Pk11
OUT Smith, Wilson, Kennedy, Pk24

HAWTHORN
IN Impey
OUT Pk33

MELBOURNE
IN Balic, Pk31, Lever
OUT Watts, Pk66, Pk10

PORT
IN Rockliff, Pk33, Motlop, Watts
OUT Trengove, Impey, Ah Chee, Pk31, Lobbe, Young

BULLDOGS
IN Trengove, Crozier, Pk30, Scache
OUT Stringer, Pk40

Biggest winners for mine are Port, Freo, Carlton and Essendon. Biggest losers Adelaide.
Nah, clearly GC. We paid too much for Gibbs but won every other trade we had. 12 for Cameron is brilliant.

Sure, but the argument these folks are making is that Weller had obvious potential to be a big part of the club's future and had already been developed, while who knows if pick 2 will come off and, if they do, that won't be for some time down the track.

I can see where they're coming from, even if this could work out very well for them in the longer term.

I would have liked the Premiers (how I do enjoy saying that) to have had a crack at Schache.

Yes, we were not reliant on key forwards as part of our success this season, but he would have been a good succession plan for Riewoldt and we would have been able to frame a Plan B around him.

Can't believe Hodge is at Brisbane - staggering.

Can't say I'd ever even heard of the guy.

Though that piss delivery company sounds faintly familiar.

'Star' seems to be used for anyone who's ever been on an AFL list.

Regardless of how this first match shakes out, and I do sincerely doubt that we have the horses to keep up with the reigning premiers for another two quarters, that was a terrific first half performance. Proud of my club for showing up confident and prepared against the best and, even more so, taking the lead back after things got level.

Fuck!

Make that mark instead of slipping in front of it and who knows what happens next. What a great match though.

Richmond finding a higher gear now. Or, perhaps, Carlton find themselves unable of staying in the same gear as the Tiges.

Hell of a lot more entertaining than the Grand Final was

Charlie Curnow, who's really coming into his own, had a productive night with deadly accuracy, 5.0. We kicked great in general but struggled to secure marks down the stretch and left too many defensive holes.

Curnow absolutely looks like he's becoming the sort of player Carlton needs.

I look forward to him having a breakout season, only to be traded to West Coast.

good one.

Great game, although I could only watch the first half as I had an early flight this morning.

should we do tips? we can just keep a running tally going in this thread. maybe everyone can put in $50 or some shit to make it interesting.
