That's not such a bad deal and keeps us in line for one of the Top 4 plus, importantly another pick in the top 8.

And of course O'Meara
I'd be rapt with that deal! I do like the sound of mcluggage and I can't wait to see us get our first ever #1 pick! However picking up Omera and swapping 1 19 for 4&8 would be a big win for the club. Assuming we don't spend the next ten years watching mcluggage become the best player of the comp in a GCS top :shock: #-o
You're both on drugs if you think GC would agree to that.

Windy, just received a message from Robbie67. He reckons you've overtaken Filthy as the biggest dimwit on the site. Stick to gardening.

Expect the Hawks to offer players and future draft picks. Doubt it will appease GC but it will force Essendon's hand.

I've also heard that Mitchell to Hawthorn is not a done deal.
Can I ask when you heard that?

Because that whole situation sounds like it'd be fascinating to be a fly on the wall in Sydney.
Re O'Meara ...via a friend currently working with the Suns high performance team. It's his opinion only and not an official club position necessarily

The Mitchell situation is now being reported in the media

It's not an Oscar but an honour nevertheless to be recognised in any way by the great man

They could lose JOM for nothing so in reality they're getting a whole lot. More importantly, to refuse such an offer would also make it easier for the player to go "f*** you" and go the PSD route. Essendon can hardly be accused of playing unfairly when offering the number 1 Pick as part of a deal. It would also make it very hard for Hawthorn to match the offer.

Having said this...still not 100% clear on JOM's medical status so remain reserved about the whole issue

Would be 1, 19, 37 for 4 and O'Meara at best. They might throw in their 3rd or 4th if we push.

They think O'Meara is worth two first rounders, right or wrong, they're giving up him (2 picks) and 4 & 8, that's four first round picks for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Even if you discount one first pick off O'Meara's worth, that's three first rounders for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Yes, apparently they're the front runners for Tom Mitchell, Ty Vickery, Jack Reiwoldt, Travis Cloke, Jaeger O'Meara, Hamish Hartlett and Brent Harvey. Plenty of room in their salary cap for all of them, while maintaining everyone else on their current list...
Unfortunately, you can't drown a witch!

Would love to get Jaeger, but let the Dawks have him if we can have Mitchell instead :wink:

New mail this morning from a mate at The Age.

They think O'Meara is close to a done deal at Hawthorn, and are backing up their source as being very creditable.

Hartlett is definitely a chance of making a move. Likely GC or us.

I'm hoping we dodged a bullet.

Still think we need to make aggressive plays for other "gun" players to show we mean business.

I reckon Gold Coast are crazy enough to send him to the PSD if they don't get what they want from Launceston.

Whorethorn ALWAYS get these deals done. They will offer decent players for better ones. Remember Carlisle?
