    Cameron leaving is the best thing that could happen to GWS. Fixes their salary cap in one move.

    Well, in my scenario I'm choosing to believe that in 2021 we've come to our senses and brought in adequate ruck relief to partner with English.

    Re: Trade Dunkley

    If games go back to longer quarters, this should mean more rotation through the middle and our midfield depth (in theory) will be a more potent weapon.

    Re: List Management for 2020/21

    Martin was worked over big time by Stanley/Blicavs. Doesn't seem to be covering the ground as well anymore, and he's never really been a threat up forward so unlikely to combine well with English...

    Re: Trade Dunkley

    Seems like a sideways move for us. I'd only consider moving Dunkley if it filled one of our gaping holes with an A-grade type in ruck, key defence or general forward.

    The Dunkley rumour has certainly gotten Bomber Blitz up and about. They're salivating at the idea of bringing in Dunks.

    Plenty of exciting youth coming through, plus they have a great ruck combo (jealous).

    He's definitely far and away the alpha dog in the Brisbane midfield.

    As an aside, how good has their trading been in recent times?

    Neale AND Charlie Cameron brought in from other clubs.

    Would take some serious cahones to get rid of Bont's best mate. Some extra draft picks wouldn't be worth it IMO, would need to be players that fill holes in our best 22.

    To be fair, Bevo would probably make Nank fizzle away in the VFL because he lacks ‘versatility’ and can only play one position.

    They have Hawkins as the permanent alpha dog and a pretty effective combo of Stanley/Blicavs to do the rucking, around the ground/forward stuff. Lessens the need and utility of someone like Rat.
