    Motlop can't be on that much given Geelong only got a 2nd rd compensation pick for him.

    Seems like all the media was wrong yesterday. They were all saying Motlop's compensation was a 2nd round pick but the AFL trade tracker now saying it's an end of first round pick instead, around pick 19.

    Really just show how ridiculous the compensation system is that a player like Motlop gets you pick 19. Just a stupid system that it exists at all.

    The AFL obviously want Ablett at Geelong just as bad as Geelong do.

    No more FA offers in this trade window. Only FA that might still be left are delisted FA which will occur after lists are lodged. Menzel the most notable not to receive any offers, with Suban, Howlett, and C.Beams some of the others.

    Surprised no-one wanted to offer Menzel a two year deal. Would think he stays at Cats, although perhaps clubs were just waiting to finalise lists after trade period etc

    Saad to Essendon has been done for a future 2nd round pick. Unsure if this is Essendon's 2018 pick or the one they got from GWS in the Smith trade but I think it's the Essendon one.

    Bizarre. He's from Tasmania and his family lives in Melbourne, and he just started building a house over here with his girlfriend.

    The reasoning being given is that he calls GC home as I guess that's where he did his last few years of schooling; his gf's family is in the GC and when he was offered a 4 year extension to his contract, he realised he didn't want to live in Perth for the next 5 years.

    Or he realised there was a bunch of cap space at GC and midfield minutes too.

    Seems like North is hoping that A.Swallow wants to go to the GC.

    Smart by GC, he's one of the few guys from GC and he's exactly the kind of player they should be targeting. Kid who looks like a potential gun midfielder whose value has been devalued by playing out of position his whole career to date.
