    Another trade through:

    Hawthorn receive: Impey + Pick 67
    Port receive: Pick 33 + Pick 61 + Future 4th rounder

    Nice business by both teams.

    Happy to get Impey, we need to some run and carry and bit more speed.
    Although would have thought 33 would be enough.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Interesting trades.

    Adelaide pull off the heist on value got Melbourne to pay significant overs, Lever's going to want to develop a hell of a lot to justify that cost or he'll end up their new whipping boy with Watts on his way out. They gave him the ridiculous contract and I guess it kind of forced their hand, well played Adelaide. Be interesting to see what Adelaide do with the picks now though.

    Smith is a great deal for Essendon, really solid value there for them.

    Impey could be a valuable piece for the Hawks and they gave up next to nothing, 4th round picks don't even get used half the time and 33 to get a guy who will push for the best 22 from day dot is not bad business.

    Steal for the dogs imo.

    Croz has been used as one of Ross's "role players" and quite often out of position. Would not be surprised at all to see him flourish into a 35-40 goal a year forward at a quick paced team like the dogs.

    Best of luck to him, his best footy was certainly never going to eventuate at Freo.

    Good result. Should get opportunities on HB line but as N29 said can play as a FWD and was originally recruited as one.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    We certainly need some more speed and finishing ability up forward. Dickson is getting on and is more of a lead up type. The others are all mids who are being asked to play forward (Dahl, Smith, Wallis, Hunter etc) with limited midfield time. None of them above 4, with the exception of Hunter at times, has much in the way of kicking skills and our inability to convert inside 50 entries to goals has been one of our fundamental problems.

    Edit: Reading now that we intend to use him at half back so that's not going to help out our main issues.

    Have a feeling we're about to buckle and end up with 2 picks in the late 20's for Stringer.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Motlop is kind of a need for us with White probably either possibly retiring or being delisted and Impey leaving. Needed to replace that speed with someone.

    if we were to get Watts as well it would top a superb trade/FA period for the club.

    Trade radio has just said apparently that Watts is going to pick Port Adelaide as his preffered club

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Where are Port finding all this money? They paid a massive amount for Dixon and vastly overpaid Boak to keep him. Have Gray, Polec, Ebert, Hartlett and Ryder they also paid extravagantly to get/keep.

    Doing a great job of cap management obviously! Has been a pretty solid free agent period if they pull Watts as well.

    Crozier has been solid in basically every role he's played without ever being good, I think he's looked best across half back so like that role for him. He can be fantasy relevant in that role as well, imo. Dogs are still fairly heavy in that position even with the retirements of Murphy and Boyd but he can certainly push in behind JJ as their top option on the rebound.

    Dogs made a mess of the Stringer situation, telling him and the world that they absolutely don't want him back very quickly undermined his value and not controlling the volatile ex from going on a full blown sabotage mission was also a rookie error. Something not quite right at the kennel for mine with the way things have gone the past year since the flag. They've managed to drive what should have been a first round pick deal into what will probably be a mid 2nd round pick deal. Credit to them if they salvage much more than that.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Chris Davies did say on trade radio we have absolutely nk problem fitting in all 3 of Rockliff, Motlop and Watts.

    Rocky is rumoured to be on less than 700k (which would indicate why Brisbane didnt get a high priority pick for him. He'schasing success over money, if was about the coin he would've went to Carlton

    Motlop about 500k.

    We lose Trengove who was about 400ish, and get rid of Lobbe who is getting a fair whack being on a long term deal and you can why he be saying that.

    Then you get rid of the likes of Impey, Young, Ah Chee, they wouldnt be on big money but it all adds up)
