AFL Trade Week 2011

AFL Trade Week is upon us and this is the place to discuss the trades as they happen. We will be updating this blog when things happen and give our opinions on what it might mean for AFL Dream Team.

There have been plenty of rumours over the last few weeks with what could happen. Will Brendon Goddard make it to Carlton? What other Saints will get the chop? Will Mitch Clark make it to Freo and what will the Lions get?

  • Team Name: DRAFT DT

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Deledio, Lake, Waters, P. Davis, McKenzie, (Buntine, Docherty)

    MID: Swan, Rockliff, Hayes, Barlow, Mundy, Lovett (Whitfield, Greene)

    RUCK: Goldstien, Leunburger (Longer, Redden)

    FWD: Franklin, Cloke, Fyfe, Zaharakis, J. Brown, Hoskin-Elliott, Morabito, (Porplyzia, Coniglio)

    Not sure if this would fit in the budget or not but i thought it’d be a pretty good team to build up from, Anyone know if Lake has retired and obviously theres Lovett who may or may not be drafted into a team but if he is i’d get him in for sure he hasnt lost it yet. P. Davis also is one im really not sure about and i dont think i’d have in my team at the end but he’ll be leading them from the back and its gonna be done there alot plus he should be cheap because of those shoulders of his. And does Anyone know for sure how many trades, bench players (just double checking) and what the budget will be for next year and where i can get this info?

    Thanks Please comment on how my team looks all critisicm taken in to account.

  • Am I the only one that reckons that Armstrong + Pick 35 + late pick for Leis Johnstone is a good trade for the Swans?

    Do the swans list managers go in with a pocket watch and swing it about saying “you will trade your team away for little in return?”

    • Lol, oops, Lewis Johnston, shows how many games he’s played and how tired I am.

      • I think Crows could be slightly ahead, but that’s mainly due to the old adage that KPPs are harder to find and develop then other positions (not to mention he’s a direct replacement for Gunston). It is odd that Johnston went so cheaply, despite being a high draft pick and having plenty of potential – however Emma Quayle suggested on Twitter that he had some off-field issues at the Swans (surely the last club you’d expect someone to have off-field issues at?). Anyway, Armstrong did pretty well towards the end of season, and I’d expect him to improve at Sydney. Not gonna be an absolute superstar, but has pin point kicking accuracy. Besides that I don’t think pick 35 and 86 will be worth much to you in this weak draft… but you just never know with the Swans.

        • Lewis didn’t show much, and we have talls coming out of our ears with Seaby and Pyke and White struggling to get a game. Hopefully he goes well for them, but I doubt it. Hopefully Armstrong will kick on at the swans, Jetta has been hugely unimpressive so far.

          I am hoping there may be another trade for the swans on Monday, we have plenty of dead weight to get rid of.

  • Does anyone think Tony Armstrong could be a good unique next year now that he is playing under the swans who are good at recycling traded players. In his 5 games this year he got
    90, 82, 83, 85 and 26 (sub-affected). Definatley on my Radar if he has a solid pre-season.

      • With Bolton going hopefully this means that some of the bigger guys will be required to play on opposition KPP and this will free up Armstrong of the HBF for plenty of kick to kick (also helped by Kennelly retiring). Will have to wait and see in the NAB what role he plays, but you’d be pretty safe to say that he was brought in with this in mind

  • Quite a few bargain priced proven past performers to lock in next year. My fanplanner has a structure like this so far: 12/6/0/12 – heaps more mid-pricers then I thought I’d have. Guys like Hayes,JB and Waters are must haves if fit. Winderlich is another player who could make you some quick dollars in the first 6 rds then trade him for a rook who’s introduced in say round 3 or 4 and on the bubble.

    • Licka will take more than 6 rounds before he makes you decent cash. He will be like foley with a few low scores because of his injury.

  • CLARK IS ON HIS WAY TO MELBOURNE. In other news, bloody gerrard twice in the last two years with those frees against Manchester. Great job for De gea for saving those last minute chances.

    • Interesting that Brisbane accepted pick 12 alone instead of pick 16 + 20 from Freo.

      • I’m an eagle’s man, but i think Freo missing out on Clark is a bit of a positive. I personally can’t stand the bloke and though he has some potential i don’t think he’s a massive loss with what Freo have I Zac Clarke and Griffin as backup. As for Clark’s payment i think its absolute bullshit! For an “average” player like him to be receiving more than some of the genuine superstars e.g. Swan, Pendles, and Franklin etc. is ridiculous…

      • Brisbane were only offered pick 16 and the choice of any pre-listed player that GWS would give Fremantle.

        Brisbane wanted pick 16 and pick 38 but Fremantle wouldn’t accept.

        Pick 12 is a lot better than that.

        Melbourne apparently increased their offer yesterday meaning that Clark will be playing for at least 600K per year.I admired Clark for him turning down the huge Melbourne offer yesterday to be with his family but now all that respect is gone.

  • Also has been reported that today Brisbane will announce the signing of Jordan Lisle on a 3 year deal.

    • good news for Brisbane. hopefully he can replace clarkes role a bit. also good for crows as it might keep brisbane away from tippett.

      seems like voss has finally worked out trade week. (still furious at voss for Buchanon, Clarke, Fevola, raines, staker and mcguire!!)

  • Will Mitch Clark be a forward/ruck? And do you think he will improve in terms of DT being in a different side?

  • HIJACK!!!

    Does anyone one have a link to stream motgo from?

  • can someone give a link to the fanplanner?

    i can’t find it anywhere

  • Very interesting trade week. How is my team??

    TEAM NAME: Nicks Nightmares 12
    DEF: B. Gibbs, H. Scotland, B. Goddard, B. Deledio, B. Waters, M. Buntine, M. Talia (S. Docherty, J. Bruce)
    MID: D. Swan, T. Rockliff, S. Mitchell, L. Hayes, M. Barlow, S. Coniglio (D. Shiel, A. Treloar)
    RUC: M. Leuenberger, H. McIntosh (J. Giles, J. Redden)
    FWD: S. Johnson, L. Franklin, N. Fyfe, T. Cloke, J. Bolton, J. Patton, W. Hoskin-Elliott (J. Porplyzia, T. Walsh)

    CASH LEFT: $-145,000, but with Hayes at 405K, should nearly be right.

    Would switch Coniglio and Hoskin-Elliott if Coniglio is named also forward.

    Made this team with Fan Planner

    Going “unique” with: Scotland, “Mitchell”, McIntosh and Bolton.

    Thoughts???? Cheers :)

    • I like Mitchell as a unique, hardly lets you down. Bolton is an interesting one can get a massive 140+ but could also deliver you some 50-60’s. Scotland is very consistent, the only worrying thing is his age. All in all its looking pretty solid. :)

  • ATM 13 premiums 5 “midpricers” 10 expensive rookies 2 Under 100K rooks so it looks like: 13/5/10/2

  • this zorko that bris picked up looks like he could be michael barlow potential… http://www.lions.com.au/news/newsarticle/tabid/5085/newsid/125198/default.aspx

  • Melbourne look like they will have a strong spine in 2012!
    FB – Frawley
    CHB – Watts
    Ruck – Martin
    CHF – Clark
    FF – Jurrah

    • You reckon?? I wouldn’t consider any of these in the top 5 in the comp in their respective position perhaps top 10 even. And considering there is many teams who have at least 1 top 5 KPP at their club.

      • Hmmm 18 teams in the competition… “most teams have a top 5 KPP player in their team”
        How does that work? lol

        • (top5) x (5KPP) =25

          Divide that by 18 teams (as I stated some teams don’t even have 1) such as the Demons,Port,GWS e.t.c so that figure straight away becomes less more like 12 or 13. Teams like Freo (Sandi/Pav) Pies (Cloke/Reid) WCE (Cox/Glass) and the list goes on have MORE then 1 top 5 KPP for their respective club. Understand?

  • DEF: B. Gibbs, B. Goddard, B. Deledio, J. Grimes, B. Waters, T. Armstrong, M. Buntine, (B. Ellis, S.Morris)
    MID: D. Swan, G. Ablett jnr, S. Pendlebury, L. Hayes, M. Barlow, S. Coniglio (D. Tyson, D. Shiel)
    RUC: A. Sandilands, H. McIntosh (J. Redden, J. Giles)
    FWD: L. Franklin, N. Fyfe, T. Cloke, D. Zaharakis, J. Brown, W. Hoskin-Elliott, J. Porplyzia (A.Saad, D. Markworth)
    CASH LEFT: $134,100,

    lots of midpricers in theree but could pay off

  • DEF: Gibbs, Goddard, Deledio, Grimes, Waters, T.Armstrong*, M.Buntine
    (S.Docherty, B.Ellis)

    MID: Swan, Rockliff, Barlow, Hayes, Mundy, S.Coniglio
    (A.Treolar, D.Shiel)

    RUC: Sandilands, Luenberger
    (J.Giles, J.Redden)

    FWD: Franklin, Fyfe, Stevie J, Brown, Zaharakis, Patton, W.Hoskin-Ellliott
    (J.Porplyzia, I.Folau)

    Made using Fanplanner
    Cash left:
    – 96,000 But thats including Hayes being priced at 405k and Grimes being priced at 349k so I should be right.

    How’s that looking?

    • You might be able to upgrade Barlow to Ablett with what’s leftover. And with Jarrad Redden, he’s unlikely to get much a game with Lobbe now supported by Renouf in the side – although I guess it doesn’t really matter for your fourth ruck position.

    • The team looks good.

  • why do hayes and barlow cost so much in the fan planner and dont have the less then 10 game reduction?

    • M0nty wanted to make it more difficult for teams in the planning stage, so he left off their discounts. Don’t worry, they’ll get them.

  • Just so you guys know, the official AFL salary cap is around 8.78 mill, about 350k less than fanplanner, so maybe having too many of th Swan, Ablett, Pendles, Barlow/Mundy and Rockliff types all in the same team is a bit overenthusiastic (unless you’re playing cheaper players everywhere else)

  • Does anyone know if you able to bet if a de-listed player will be picked up by another club on any betting websites. Callum Wilson will surely get picked up in the draft if he nominates.
