    Dumbest Trade Rumour 2019

    Trade Radio starting off this annual thread really strong:

    Sydney give up picks 4 & 8 for Daniher & pick 29 (pick 32 after PP and compo)

    A top 5 pick & top 10 pick for a guy whose played 11 games in two years and a pick in the 30's.

    Bravo trade radio, Bravo.

    It might be just because I hate Essendon that much, but I have always cynically felt they enjoy a little bit of bias in these trade programs (obviously Lloyd is always in there doing his best for his old mob for a start).

    Wasn’t Tim Watson was it? His view is always so impartial with bombers trades

    What a ridiculous trade suggestion. Dodo will expect Nick Blakey to be thrown in as well.

    Re: Dumbest Trade Rumour 2019

    I nearly choked today listening to Mitch Cleary saying the Suns should part with pick 14 this year and pick 6 next year (speculative) for the services of Brad Crouch who averages just 14 games a year.
    While he is a good player, but with a few limitations, if he is going to generate 2 first round picks for the Crows then to me that's just a hugely speculative deal without enough assurances to succeed

    Is Mitch Cleary an expert?
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    You'd only consider that if you were getting both Crouch brothers. Not one or the other.

    Crouch gets plenty of the ball but you'd want him to kick it to one of the blokes wearing the same colored jumper as him from time to time for that sort of money.

    Michael Barlow suggested picks 1 and 2 for both Crouch brothers. FFS.

    I'm not sure a draft rumour can get any dumber than that. Please someone get him to a good neurologist for scans to see if he has CTE.

    I think anything inside of the top 10 is overs for either of them but the Suns do need some help

    I know it’s Twitter, but:

    “I've been hearing Grant Birchall, Isaac Smith, Jack Gunston and Liam Shiels in exchange for Picks 1, 2 and 15 thrown around...“

    OMG
