    Re: 2021 Trade Target/s

    I thought Moore was good too. If he's so good then why has he been moved to FF? Yeah I know Collingwood aren't the brightest bunch, but they aren't that stupid.

    I'm also in the camp of wanting Moore if the price is right. But it won't be so I'd pass. He's not exactly what we need. Moore wouldn't do much better than others on our list in 1-on-1 situations. We need a lockdown defender. Again, I'm not saying I don't want him. But for the salary cap and picks we'd have to give up for him, I think we're better off going down a different path. Lockdown defenders can be gotten fairly cheaply. They don't need to be world beaters. Just reliable enough to allow our other defenders to do their work.

    No chance of getting Moore in a million years.

    FWIW - Out of contract players: https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/...ntract_players

    Hands up if you knew Jed Bews was a 10 year player and UFA?

    Leftfield KPD option - Jack Hombsch. Would be cheap, is stuck behind a few others at the Suns and is a mature body. Gives us time to develop a younger KPD.
    Chol is OOC too but it would be hard to get him out of Richmond.

    Hooker and Tarrant are both UFA if we really wanted a superannuation year out of an older player.

    Collins of GC is a good example of a lockdown defender, not flashy but effective.

    I think he would be easy to get out of Richmond. He is always overlooked come finals time no matter how many games he plays during the season when they have injuries. The question is why is he overlooked for finals? I think he would be a perfect fit for us. He can play forward, back and even in the ruck. He sounds like a Bevo pinup boy when you think about it!

    Trolling the state leagues may therefore find us a better lockdown defender than from another AFL club.

    If we were any chance I'd be knocking down the door.

    Re: 2021 Trade Target/s

    Regarding backs...we need someone who can take the bigger FF’s of the competition.
    Atm we don’t have a defender that would makes me think “they won’t kick 5 today”.

    There’s a reason that when games are being discussed, it’s never really about the martins’s, boak’s, fyfe’s or Neale’s...it’s about the Hawkins, McKay, king, Dixon, Lynch, so that’s the obvious problem we face.

    We don’t want another Gardner. I want someone who when named, I can legitimately think “he could keep him goalless”.
    Who that is, I have no idea.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Who has that sort of Fullback? Moore would be the closest.

    At the end of the day we have cobbled a defence that has the least goals scored against it (along with Melbourne)

    That’s what I’m saying Bornadog...I rate Moore and if there was any chance, we should go for it. We have 2 missing pieces to our team...a “Moore” type FB and a “Tippa/Cameron/Kosi” type quick fwd.

    Hopefully Moore got on well with Treloar.

    Our kamikaze style of play when it comes undone, unravels in a big way, nearly always giving the opposition key fwd free reign (if they can mark it). Moore would make our team immediately better, and immediately stronger in the back half.

    If you want the best, you gotta go for the best, otherwise, try to prize Hartley out of hawthorn and be done with it.

    Harris Andrews. Would love him. We should get him.

    I think his backup could be an option. Jack Payne, huge, has been ok in the games he has played. Up against it to get a game ahead of Andrews, Adams, Gardiner and Lester.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    We chased him prior to his last contract signature.
    Ditto Ben McKay
    Ditto Dougal Howard

    We're definitely chasing KPDs.
    I wonder if Hombsh is a chance to move clubs again if GCS don't see him in their longer term plans. It's a tight market for KPDs.

    God yes. He is the benchmark IMO. I like Moore too. Both are chained up in their club dungeons and arenít going anywhere.
