    As already covered, it's GWS's 2nd so 2017 34-36 for 48,66 & 70.

    I think we can all agree it's a pretty silly trade, but would be a combo of many small factors:

    1. Rate this year's depth higher than next year's.
    2. Want to take more picks this year (definitely true, we are going to have soooo many list spots after more delistings to come.)
    3. Helping out Hawks for future trades (Some spin on this, lol, I guess we'll know in future trades with Hawks if this was true lol.)
    4. Stop Essendon getting O'meara in PSD? (A chance?)

    As much as the fans love the idea of shafting rival clubs, if we'd got O'Meara in the PSD, that effectively moves you up to the first Victorian live pick in that draft. Free hit at Richards/Barlow/whoever

    More likely it's just a list numbers thing, need to take X number of picks this year and don't want to pick at 135
    Never bet against Tom Rockliff

    Yep. Not a good sign for a few waiting for contracts on our list!

    Lots of off field issues - including coming to blows with team mates on multiple occasions. Was not being offered a contract next year.

    Let's hope for his sake he doesn't do something stupid enough to end up in court again.

    Didn't realise this. It explains everything. Cheers
