    I think none as he wouldn't suit Bevo's way. But if we are looking to tinker, perhaps 25!

    Yep, trading is all about finding value for your club that is low value to another club. The determination on value can be based on future planning (i.e. Bruce and Keath) or things like too many players of similar ilk and not enough space to fit them all in which is exactly what we benefited from with Lloyd - who was an amazing get in last year's post season. Seriously, Lloyd could have been a dual premiership player with Richmond if the cards had have fallen just a bit differently for him. Someone of his talent could be good enough to play in any premiership team on ability and impact, unfortunately for him Richmond's panel thought differently of the team they needed to field to win a flag, but in the end his inclusion or omission wouldn't have had a material impact on their success or otherwise. They'd have most likely found a way to get it done if he was in the team.

    Players also benefit from a fresh start and a new environment. We should be able to trust our program to get the best out of anyone who we bring in.

    I was thinking about this last week and wondering if that's why we kept Porter, but the solution could be starting at us in the face.

    You need someone who is light on his feet at the stoppage, and one of the best at it in the comp (according to opposition players) is on our list.
    You need an elite tackler, and the same guy is a tackling freak.
    He also has family history. It's in his blood.

    Libba, come on down.
