    Who knows? He's got less trade value than he did last year, but I'd prefer to hang onto him. I suspect he might be involved in a trade for Walker, but I'm not sure we could get much for him.

    Jack Anthony and a sweetener? You have him as a second marking option next to Bazza and your forward line is looking better. As undoubtedly awesome as the big bad Leroy has been this year, a another back-up ruckman to give Jolly a chop out would be good for us. Has he played forward much?

    He's not really a backup ruckman. He's played mainly defence and found it hard to break in. I'm guessing he's one of those guys who has got on Eade's bad side and from all accounts it is pretty hard to come back.

    Anthony isn't really the type of player we need. We've got enough of the mid-size marking types to sink a battleship. I'm pretty sure Djekkeura (gotta find out how to spell that) is an attempt to fill a hole that was exposed time and time again this year - as soon as the ball went to ground inside fifty, we were mince meat. I'm not too familiar with him, though, but anything that can tackle is an improvement on what we've had.

    Collingwood are a pretty young team. But people talk loosely about dynasties as though premierships are so easy to win. On that score, Geelong were a great team but didn't even manage back-to-back premierships. It really is the case that, even if you have the best players, all the stars need to align in order to win even just one flag.

    Yeah, talk of a dynasty definitely premature. So much has to go right to challenge for a flag, let alone win. We'll be very confident going into next year, but can't believe Mick or Eddie would get sucked in, or allow the players to get sucked in, by the idea that it will be all one way next year. Someone always bobs up, and injuries can ruin any teams year.

    Looks like Houili amy be a chance of coming the Tigers' way though, despite Hird's appointment.

    Would take Houli for Tambling. Reckon it'll be good for Tambling too. He'd be decent at Essendon for mine. Had a very good 2009.

    Yeah, would be a part of the Tambling trade.

    Tambling has the ability to make some really really poor decisions especially at critical times under pressure, really not sold on him.

    Surprised to hear Djekkerra (sp) offered up, think he's been groomed to take the place of Varcoe in the forward line when Travis moves into the midfield. However, I guess with Shannon Motlop and Menzell in competition, it may make a bit of sense.

    Think there's a lot of bulltish that goes on this week. If someone like Everitt isn't getting a regular game, the Dogs can't ask for a first round pick, simple as that. Ditto for Essendon "talking tough" on Bachar Houli, he doesn't have value because he hasn't been playing: simple.
