    my bad, meant I do NOT expect Lever to become a KPD. one word does change things. E-Mac is definitely looking to move by all accounts, not sure of his contract status but he's not happy. allegedly


    Is he really a target worth chasing though? Even ignoring his contract price/years on his deal which I think is shocking from the get go. As a player is he really that good/worth chasing? Think he's usually a pretty shit poller in the B&F at Port, hasn't really done much in terms of brownlow votes, has the injury problems as well. Just feels like there's plenty of reasons not to go after him and very few reasons to actually do so.
    might be the best on offer, he makes us better. though he has been overrated. ignoring contract, trade etc. we are a considerably better midfield unit and side with him in it; though you can't ignore contract and trade for very long. He's also a solid B player, with the talent to be A. that's an upgrade. I feel dirty discussing it though, and not in a good way
    TEX WALKER. that is all.

    Nicholls re-signed the other day so he's off the market I'd guess. He's had a lot of injuries and his commitment to the contest varies way too much but the talent is clear with him.

    Pretty sure it was Mark Stevens before the game on channel 7 last night saying Chris Mayne to Collingwood is pretty much a certain lock now. First I'd really heard about it. I guess I'd been too preoccupied with the nausea of the Maric, Schulz, Jong type rumours. Would take Mayne for sure

    Surely not on a 4 year deal like the rumour doing the rounds tonight suggests?

    Hartlett to Essendon appears to have some legs, although the relationship between the two clubs is poor and an agreement seems difficult at best.

    very much doubt Hartlett leaves SA, very close to his family and friends, all of which live in Adelaide.
    If indeed unhappy at Port he goes to the Crows.

    The story is that he was initially completely against the idea, but now that the dust has settled, he's pretty pissed at the club and is open to a move away, which most likely means to Victoria.

    It certainly doesn't help that he's the one they want to turf instead of the instigator of the whole situation (allegedly)

    Agreed, probably because the other person in question is the captain (allegedly).

    I thought the phrasing Michaelangelo Rucci used in his article was interesting. He basically said the "mythical" rumours didn't lead to Port's decision; not that they weren't true. Might be reading too much into it, but the sentence read really oddly.

    7 News reporting that Ess are now leading the race to sign Caleb Marchbank after missing out on Jaeger.

    Would seem a weird target given we've got imo the best KPD depth in the competition, all of whom have 5+ years left in their careers.
