I’m not liking what I’m reading and hearing from the biased noise from the east. No way I’d be giving anymore than one first round pick and that would be pick 8 not pick 6. He’s 29 next year FFS, surely that has to be factored in. We need the next Josh Kennedy and if we’re smart we can pick up the next Tim Kelly out of our own backyard on the cheap like Geelong did.

Bailey Rogers, Greg Clark? Hello? And we’ve got some super talent in our u/19’s this year. I’m playing hard ball with Lachie and Brisbane. I’m keeping pick 6 & 8 to draft the two best kids out of WA sorry. I’m not giving any of those picks up for a 29 year old no matter how good he is.

Lachie can stay there for another year after this draft and Brisbane will let him go for less.

Id be very hesitant about what to give up for him, he cant be a direct replacement for Cerra, he is an inside mid and its been made clear they need outside runners. If Fyfe comes into a midfield that already has Brayshaw and Serong, as the bulldogs did on the weekend they will get exposed for outside run at the stoppage.

It also then puts a big question mark on what to do with Mundy, he is a inside mid (yes he is clean when he breaks away but he doesnt run the wings all day) and at his age is he worth persisting as a forward that goes in for short bursts?

To me this is all in the court of Neale and Brisbane. If I was Peter Bell id go in there and say we offer our second round pick as a starting point and see who blinks first.

Geelong has done that beautifully for years, and then its upto Brisbane to hold him against his wishes, convince him to stay or give him what he wants and go to free agency to replace him.

Where Brisbane will be spewing is his contract was front loaded - he has been paid most of his 4 million in the first three years. He is probably only on 500K a year for the last 2 years of the deal

Yep..agree with both of you guys and the Pav says pretty much the same thing. He's much closer to the end of his footy career than the beginning so definitely not worth two first round picks. He's a quality player so if there's an opportunity to pick him up without selling the farm as WCE did when they paid overs for Kelly then I'd say go for it but with some caution.

That's old news I think Robinson claimed his twitter account was hacked.

Didn’t Freo only get a first, second and forth round pick and lost Neale and a third rounder
not sure he worth more now he’s 3 years older and coming off a season injured, Would be a massive in but not if we give up to much.
shouldn’t Freo be targeting Clark from the cats, possibly Lipinski (now we have Bob and Boyd connection)
and get a couple of our 19 boys in and continue to build under Darcy, Brayshaw, Serong and all our other young players

Brisbane gave up pick 6,19,31,54 in the Neale trade.In a complex trade involving a number of clubs.
Johnathon Brown said today Brisbane will want pick 6+8 for Neale.And possibly pick 14 next year.Wow that's a Tim Kelly premium price.

Yep and age has to be a factor and his recruitment helped them play finals 3 years running and attractive other players. 

I wouldn't be offering anymore than pick pick 8 assuming we get pick 6 from Carlton. Maybe we get more than pick 6 from Carlton. Is Rory Lobb still wanting to go to the Gold Coast? Tell him it's Brisbane and they get our second rounder.

Lobb and a second rounder for a contracted Brownlow medallist?
The thing about keeping a low draft pick or picks is you don’t know how they are going to turn out. If they trade they are getting Lachie Neale, it’s a gamble worth taking possibly if Freo truly believe they are going up the next few seasons
