    Re: Essendon set to trade pick No.11 as it attempts to secure Jake Stringer, Devon Smith and Adam Saad

    And in 12 months time if we haven't repaired the damage?

    We lose him for zilch. So be it.

    Bend over backwards for Essendon now and the precedent is well and truly set for any future negotiations with clubs: hold firm, because they won't.

    I was more concerned with having an out of sorts Stringer around the playing group for a year.

    It's going to be an almighty challenge to repair the relationship with the coach and the player given it was played out in public.

    Exactly. Essendon will still need to do a deal with us of some description or they can go to the draft and hope they don't miss him.

    Which brings us back to..... If we weren't serious about our position we should have accepted 11 for 26

    Without really knowing the full extent of Jake's transgressions it seems like Stringer stays. Essendon are tossers who think the world owes them even after they disgraced our AFL brand.
    Unless some creative deal involving two 2nd rounders or a future pick happens, Jake's chance to prove himself will be with us.
    Come on down the new Jake Stringer. Redemption is the best human story.
    I wept from seeing greatness. Bontempelli was Royce Hart at his best, full of grace, intertwining his ballet seamlessly into a game of football.

    If he doesn't straighten up then he literally doesn't enter the club if that's such a concern. No AFL, no VFL.

    Someone will still have to trade for him next year - he wont be an unrestricted free agent - we might not get an amazing price, but we may decide thats ok
