- Jarryd Waite is a free agent and has told Carlton that he is moving clubs
- Dayne Beams has told Collingwood he wants to bugger off up to Queensland. He’ll most likely end up with his brother at Brisbane Lions.
- Ryder has told Essendon he wants out. As long as a deal gets done he is off to Port Adelaide
- Heritier Lumumba and Collingwood are negotiating a deal which would move him to Melbourne
- Shaun Higgins has told the Dogs he’s looking at his options – North a frontrunner
Word around the community:
- Jarrad Waite according to www.afl.com.au will end up at North Melbourne
- Daniel Merrett has received interest from other clubs, Lions List Manager Peter Schwab has confirmed that Merrett is exploring his options. The Lions look as if they are ready to do a trade provided the right option comes about
- James Frawley is a free agent and they reckon Freo have offered him a 5 year deal worth 3 million. Take it son. Now. Word is though that the travel factor is a show stopper – with recent whispers that Hawthorn is in the mix for the overrated defender.
- Will Minson is being linked with Geelong – the Skin Flute in a Cat jumper??
- Dangerfield continues to be bandied around in discussions as if he’s on the table. Melbourne has reveled that they’ve offered Adelaide picks 2 and 3 in the 2014 national draft.
- Jono O’Rourke wants to come back to Victoria from GWS.
- Saint Kilda is willing to trade it’s #1 selection in the draft if the right trade is there.
Heard a solid trade whisper? Reckon you know how it might all go down? Importantly.. how will some of this effect fantasy footy in 2014? Will Sidebum cop a harder tag? Will Swan need to pull his finger out and play more mid? How many questions can be nested into one paragraph?
Let’s talk trades
A very open Josh Mahoney of the Demons made it very clear on @traderadio that picks 2 and 3 would be offered to the Crows for Dangerfield
