    Will be interesting to see what Port do if they're trying to get Motlop. Trengove is likely to leave on FA to the Dogs so if they bring in Motlop, that would cancel their compensation. I suspect both will go for around the same compensation so not sure it'll end up making any difference but we've seen Port trade for a FA before with Monfries.

    They've been linked with Rockliff as well, in which case they're not getting any compensation you wouldn't think anyway so would probably just sign them both.

    Stringer not at the B&F tonight, which confirms he's on his way out. Not sure how I feel to be honest after having read the story from his ex last week and having had basically all of it confirmed through other sources.

    Yeah, if they get Rocky then all that flies out the window. Will be interesting to see if Brisbane try to do something significant with their picks and what should be loads of cap space.

    Was there any substance to the rumour of JJ & Stringer's ex being more than just "friends" divvy?

    Very messy situation

    No substance that I know of. JJ was good friends with both and I think took her side when he found out about what Jake was doing.

    ADELAIDE has been rocked with Charlie Cameron joining Jake Lever in requesting a trade from West Lakes.

    Cameron is understood to have informed the Crows he wants a trade on Thursday, with the speedster fixed on a move to the Brisbane Lions so he can be closer to family in Queensland.

    Unlike the out-of-contract Lever, Cameron is contracted with Adelaide for next season, so it is far from certain the Crows will agree to his request.

    Adelaide officials have consistently said they expect Cameron to fulfill the final year of his contract when asked about the 23-year-old's future recently.

    It's likely then the Lions will have to pay 'overs' for Cameron to convince the Crows to release him from his contract.

    If Adelaide agrees to enter discussions with the Lions, it will likely be eyeing one of the Lions' picks at No.12 and No.18 in this year's NAB AFL Draft. The Lions will also likely add No.19 to their draft hand after Tom Rockliff's impending free agency move to Port Adelaide, a selection that could also be in play.

    Lever has requested a trade to Melbourne, but the Crows have rejected the Demons' initial offer of picks No.10 and 27, determined to hold out for No.10 and the Dees' 2018 first-round selection.

    Cameron is a former rookie who has played 73 games for the Crows since debuting in 2014.

    He finished 10th in the Crows' best and fairest award after a breakthrough 2015 season, when he kicked 29 goals in 22 games.

    Cameron backed that up with a ninth-place finish last year and missed just one game this season, when he was a key member of the Crows' charge to the Grand Final with another 29-goal season.

    Cameron has formed an exhilarating combination in attack with fellow Crows small forward Eddie Betts. His blistering pace makes him a dangerous match-up for rival clubs, while his defensive worth ethic and run-down tackling are also outstanding.

    Really feel for the crows, this exodus of players every year is ridiculous

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Really important player for them, will be interesting to see his market value, kind of guy who on pure stats is like a 3rd round value but on impact is probably worth a 1st, which I guess makes a 2nd around his value.

    I'd happily give up the Swans 2nd for him and I'd give our first some real thought, his skillset is vital to the current style that the better teams are running. He's got AA forward potential down the road.

    Think their 18 is pretty much spot on given he's still under contract.

    Jackson Trengove was at Whitten Oval today doing some photoshoots as he heads off overseas soon. Expect the FA to be announced early tomorrow and Port to not contest.

    Aaron Francis has reportedly requested a trade back to SA. No mention of preferred club or if Essendon is willing to let him go.

    Jarmen Impey to Hawthorn looks likely, although we haven't got much pick wise to trade with.

    I would have thought either a player or an early third rd pick would do. Talk of Hartung being traded which might be enough in a 3 way deal.
