    Of course. Smart by GC, it's a rarity for them. It's also one of those situations where they can overpay a little (filtering into your thoughts on clubs over-valuing draft picks) to get it done. They don't need another top 15 pick who doesn't want to be there, when they can get a 21 year old for 10+ years.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    Yeah in hindsight it seems like quite an obvious target for GC considering their problems retaining players. Supposedly Weller let the club know last week so I imagine today's release was to do with Fremantle holding firm and his manager/GC attempting to generate some external pressure. Young, local, durable and maybe most importantly, marketable. Mitch Cleary reporting he's been offered $800k for 5 years which is just insane money based on output.

    If that figure is true Fremantle will get a good result out of this, GC can't just throw second rounders at this at make it happen if you're making the guy about the 35th highest paid player in the game.

    WEST Coast has secured Port Adelaide midfielder Brendon Ah Chee on a one-year contract after the Power agreed on a trade for the 23-year-old.

    AFL.com.au understands the Eagles will hand over their third round selection in next year's draft while also receiving one of the Power's fourth-round picks in the 2018 draft.

    The Eagles originally offered their fourth round pick in this year's draft, pick No.68 overall, while the Power were holding firm at a third round selection.

    Ah Chee was searching for more opportunities to play senior football after managing just five games last season for the Power.

    He asked for a one-year contract with the Eagles on similar terms to his current deal with the Power.

    "Brendon's only wish all along was to go to a club where he would have the opportunity to showcase his talent and become a regular player in the best 22 each week," Ah Chee's manager Anthony Van Der Wielen told AFL.com.au.

    "That way, if he backs himself to play well and becomes a regular player, he should be able to set down a nice, long-term deal for himself instead of playing year to year as he has for the past six seasons."

    Andrew Swallow will join his brother at GC next season. Trade to be worked out but expected to be a formality.

    Imagine it's a salary dump by North as much as anything.

    Yep, even before he'd come out and said anything, North said they were happy for him to go and mentioned GC as an option.

    Harrison Wigg has been traded from Ade to GC, meanwhile it looks like Gibbs to Ade will get done soon.

    Seems Gibbs deal is on hold at the moment with Carlton believing the deal included Ade's 2018 2nd rd pick and Ade believing it didn't.

    I'm not sure the details of it, something along the lines of a pick swap or something.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    So best I can understand it, it seems Carlton thought it was pick 10, 1st rd 2018 and swap of 2nd rd 2018 but Ade thought it was pick 10, and 1st rd 2018 for Carlton's 2nd rd 2018 or something like that.

    Carlton thought it was:
    10 + Future 1st + Future 2nd
    for
    Gibbs + Future 2nd

    Crows thought it was:
    10 + Future 1st
    for
    Gibbs + Future 2nd


    To put it simply, we want the future 2nd (Pick 36) for Kennedy, otherwise the trade is basically just Pick 10. The difference between Crows Future 1st and our Future 2nd, will in all likelihood be within 2-6 spots.

    So, Pick 10 for Gibbs (and slight upgrade of spots) or Pick 10 + Pick 32-36 for Gibbs (and slight upgrade of spots)


    Was very clear to me we were never doing 10 + Future 1st for Gibbs + Future 2nd.

    Be interesting to see if Crows do our expected trade, or another permutation comes up.

    Re: 2017 Free Agency + Trade Period

    I feel like 10 by itself for someone that will be 29 come the start of next season is overs but something I'm able to live with.

    Adding the 16 for their second round next year should be icing on the cake for them, think the 2nd rounder from us next year is big overkill.

    I really want us to make a move of some sort as sitting still isn't the right move but I think Carlton's price is far too high for Gibbs. He's under contract so they can ask for whatever they like, fair enough, but I think it's too much.
