    Shane Tuck would be a decent get for team looking for some inside grunt. He obviously has his limitations as a footballer but put him on the right team and he'd be a nice pickup. He can flat out find the footy and he is a tough as a two dollar steak.

    Worry free for Carlton too: Betts ain't going anywhere, Carrazzo will be named captain + Scotland has another year or so anyway.

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.
    Would think this is Bolton's last year, even if it isn't he is pretty much cost neutral under the new veterans list rules anyway. Goodes I can't see us low balling or walking, with how he presents I'd say he is a guy that would probably retire before playing for another club. Would think he is basically on a Fletcher type situation at this point, he will play as long as he wants.

    I think Sylvia would be a decent addition for a top line club. To me, he seems like the kind of guy who would thrive having gun players around him more than one who would stand up and lead a shocking team.

    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
    MJ over Sylvia, surely you don't think Sylvia is that bad!!

    For some reason I'm not too keen on either Thomas or Wells myself, would be open to Betts, Waters or Sylvia however I can't see either of the first two leaving their respective clubs either.

    Was saying that a few years ago when Richmond stopped playing him altogether and could have basically be gotten for free yet still attracted no attention then, hard to see that changing at all now.

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    Wells & Thomas are fantastic when fit.

    They are exactly what we need, fast outside line breakers who can finish the chain. Thomas is inside enough as well that he would be more of a benefit than anyone else IMO. Unfortunately he won't ever leave Collingwood.

    Danger can do most of this stuff anyway but you ideally want him dishing it out to one of them.

    Re: Free Agency 2013

    If we were to enquire about a player, someone like a Wells or Thomas could be a good fit with how we've stocked up on inside mids lately. Michael Johnson could be handy too. I'm thinking from a Football Manager point of view though, the player actually has to want to come to the club.

    I think we might put forward a decent offer toward someone this season. Whether it's one of the GWS people (Patton maybe? ) or a more established player I think we could have the cap space to address some needs in our list.

    Really though, you guys don't have a team that will go close to a flag in a few years. You know that. I can't seeing you go for a 28 year old Daniel Wells. Maybe Thomas at 26.

    But you are right, they wouldn't want to go near the Doggies.

    I wouldn't have Kane as a certainty.

    Watson is the closest thing to a certainty that you can have though

    What's the reason for LeCras not being a certainty? Role I'm guessing, or am I missing something here?
    Never argue with a fool. They'll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Good question Thumpy. Should be removed also in my opinion, will not be going anywhere.
