    Adelaide apparently has Scott Thompson on it's list as well, but has a clause* in his contract allowing him to kick on to 2014 with ease



    *Not that kind of clause

    Sydney's are pretty safe one would think

    Sylvia probably looks the juiciest other than Franklin as far as potential impact players that are a good chance of at least exploring their situation.

    Wells is someone that appeals as well. If Freo can't get Buddy you'd think they'd put some serious work into Wells.

    I think someone like Gia could appeal to certain top flight clubs as well.

    Daisy Thomas would be targeted by a few teams as well, wonder how much the Pies have in the war chest after forking out for Cloke last year.

    North looks pretty safe as well.

    Petrie, Wells and Harvey are pretty safe.

    Grima the only risk but think he will sign on. I don't mind if we lose Firito

    Adelaide is pretty cashed up apparently, (HS puts us behind only Fremantle) which makes sense with le cucumber leaving and the only guy coming in being Graham.

    For some reason I was expecting Dal Santo to be a free agent.

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    According to HS, we've been the first club to flag an interest in Buddy.

    Now, I am a bit suspicious about this, because I wonder whether we really believe he'd gettable or if we are piggy backing his star to gain some reflected glory by associating ourselves as a potential destination.

    but in any case...from that list, there are a number of guys of interest, in order:

    • Betts
    • Dale Thomas
    • Daniel Wells
    • Patfull
    • Beau Waters
    • M Johnson
    • Sylvia


    Contract matters, as does team need.

    By the way, I don't think there is any such thing as a guy who is safe, except for guys who are too old to really be of much interest. Goodes and Bolton are staying at the swans, just because they are too old to be of interest to anyone. Now if the swans choose to arse them about with low offers, maybe they'll get their nose out of joint and leave out of spite - but even then, that would be as a result of team decisions. I do not believe guys like that can or will leave without the teams involvement in that decision. so to me they are not really FA risks.

    Wells has got flight risk tattooed all over his forehead though, despite the platitudes he says to the february press.

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    Yeah I pulled that from the that Adelaide/Buddy article. Keep in mind we said something similar about Cloke late last year. I kind of think it's just them putting 2 & 2 together

    If I had to rank on who I'd want for Adelaide's purposes it would probably be ranked as follows


    1. Wells ****
    2. D Thomas *
    3. Patful ***
    4. Waters *
    5. Sylvia ****
    6. X Ellis***
    7. A Carlile***


    The star ratings out of 5 as to my perceived likelihood of them leaving (not necessarily to Adelaide).

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    Fremantle have been on the ball with locking away players recently, another year without having to worry. I'd be stunned if someone was willing to pay good money for MJ.

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    If Thomas has a good year then there'll be plenty of clubs getting in his ear, a couple of them you'd think would have a lot more to offer than Collingwood.

    Not that I think he'll be looking to move but money does talk.
    Never argue with a fool. They'll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
