According to several newspapers Essendon are one of the clubs after Bennell. That will make some of us happy, others pissed.

At east our guys are having a crack got to give them that. Would be great if JW and BMcK bought Dangerfield with them. Could we be so lucky?????

If we got Danger....imagine Vinegar Tits saying "its disgrathful, sourthes said"....Fatprick on his high horse.....senile KB saying why didn't he go to Ninthmond....Barrett demanding a AFL Investigation.

It would be hilarious.

Not surprised as we are usually linked with every out of contract players round this time of year.

Not fussed if he goes to another club

Would rather we offered Danger 1 million a year and have 2 top 5 draft picks

We need on field generals who can play

exactly, we dont need troubled stars who contantly need baby sitting. as tempting as it sounds i hope we dont get him. only caveat is if we can get him for quite cheap in order to mitigate the risk involved with this type of player.

Danger is going to Geelong. Not worth talking about it.

IF, we got pick 5 from St Kilda for Carlisle, I'd be happy to pass it on for Bennell and Zac Smith. If we didn't get pick 5, I wouldn't. Definitely wouldn't give pick 4 to them for Bennell on his own.

They are not going to give us both bennel and smith for pick 5.

Wants Fremantle which is not surprising seeing he is a Mandurah boy

Good luck to the kid - definitely the type of player Freo needs
