Just wondering if any Collingwood supporters know why they changed their home guernsey to black with white stripes and made their traditional white with black stripes guernsey their away jumper. I reckon the traditional white backed jumper looks way better than the black backed one. UC Browser SHAREit Appvn
Looking like its going to be a huge trade period this year with some big names floating around.
DEAN KENT has requested a trade to Saints for more opportunity and midfield time. Not a huge loss for the Dees as he's played 11 games in 2 seasons, but when he's fit he's quick and could add some value to the St Kilda line up. What's he worth? Third rounder?
MITCH McGOVERN has today requested a trade to Carlton after completing a medical for the club. Will Carlton play him forward or more so in defense, similar to his brother? I'm guessing Adelaide will fight for a late first round pick. Carlton will be very keen to get their man, but won't want to lay down after the Bryce Gibbs trade.
JESSE HOGAN is apparently meeting with his management today so hopefully we find out more soon. Hard to believe it might actually happen, but Melbourne won't let him go for nothing. As is always the case for big name players (and not out of contract), Freo will have to pay what some people will say is overs to get the player they need. Steven May has met with Melbourne and is the one being talked about in a possible Hogan trade, but Pies were in the running early and Gold Coast could yet hold him to his contract. They'd get more for him this year, but losing 3 captains in 2 seasons isn't a great look! I think May would fit in brilliantly at the Dees, the big key forwards have been a regular problem over the last few years.
LACHIE NEALE wants out to Brisbane, and you'd think if Freo could nab Hogan they might be a little more willing to let him go. The word is they're after Rory Lobb as well, although West Coast appear to be in the box seat.
The salary cap appears to be about to burst at the Giants so they'll be busy. Hard to imagine them letting go of Shiel but it looks like he'll be in Victoria next year. Scully is an interesting one too. Lobb looks all but gone, which means GWS should be in the hunt for a ruckman. Sounds like BRAYDEN PREUSS has all but committed to the Red and Blue, in a surprising move for him but a great move for Melbourne who have delisted King and Filipovic, their only other official ruckmen behind Gawn. With Hogan potentially out the door, maybe the Dees are planning to give regular game time to a second ruckman who can swing forward which is what's sold Preuss? Would have thought he'd have a think about the likes of St. Kilda, GWS and a couple of other clubs who should be actively seeking ruckmen who can take the number 1 spot.
CHAD WINGARD will be an interesting one. Early rumours are that Bulldogs are leading the race, although Hawks are looking like a good chance as well. They'll have to pay up, but he'd be a big addition to either club.
JACK MARTIN could find himself held to his contract if May is let go. Otherwise, Essendon sounds like the early leader. A change of scenery could see him really hit his full potential.
There are other rumours flying around, along with some delistings who might get chances at other clubs. What have you heard, or what would you like to see happen with your club?
