The clubs have always been too conservative. The system probably doesn’t work to allow for a bit more aggression but the clubs themselves are very timid as well.

Caught a bit of Montagna and King crapping on about the state of the clubs after the trade farce, I mean, period. Listening to Montagna you’d think at least 12 teams will finish in the top 4. He just loves what they’ve all done.

*smile* he’s a moron. Him and King should have starring roles in Dumb & Dumber 3 or whatever number it’s up to now.

So much hot air. They built a studio set & have a radio channel..for this!

Jabba the Hutchy won't be happy.
Gilligan has killed the excitement that was this period.
As soon as they thought it was a good idea for clubs able to trade picks and build points to get a kid from a fantasy academy.
They have destroyed it.
Plain and simple.

Whole system needs an overhaul I think.

Clubs lack the balls to make aggressive moves so it needs to be shaken up.

Allowing clubs to trade players against their will and to buy existing players contracts would be a good start.

I'd also like to see salary cap be allowed to be used as trade currency.
The AFL as a whole needs a revamp.
*Umpiring, Rules, Tribunal.
*Trade week needs to be Monday to Friday. only for player swaps.
*Picks can be traded only the day of the draft.
* Each club can have 1 player outside the cap.
*Clubs need to nominate academy kids and be forced to use there 1 st pick on them or they're open to every other club.

Clubs aren't as open as 20-25 yrs ago.
The media are hanging like hyenas waiting for a club to make a mistake.
"Richmond trade pick 14 for Mitchell and the kid hawthorn pick up wins the Norwich rising star award.
Clubs don't want Tambling and Pavlich stories

What a load of crap this so called trade period has been. Nothing more than a media frenzy about nothing. Trying to make nothing trades out to be magnificent movements and strategy from clubs. Cant believe the amout and voulume of articles that are written about nothing. Click bait insanity,

Very underwhelming trade period to say the least. I used to look forward to this time of year but this year it was basically non event.

As the above poster mentioned trades like the NBA would spice things up & perhaps once a players contract is up they become a free agent no matter how long at that club , they could choose to re sign or explore free agency & allow in season trades up until say round 18.

Have they done the grading yet for each club?

A+ for anyone who actual completed 2 trades
B for any club that traded a player
C for trading picks
D for do nothing.

I’m guessing the lower end of the AFL pay scale is not high enough to justify this.

If you’re Marlion Pickett on a minimum wage you can’t really trade him out to a Gold Coast at the drop of a hat, for instance.

Just listening to SEN and a deluded Essendon supporter rang in to say the Essendon should flat out refuse to deal with Jason McCartney ever again. They were forced to overpay for Stringer/Shiel/Smith and Caldwell and now Jason was too mean to let Bobby Hill get to Essendon. A player that only recently said he would not be leaving, he not that type of bloke, yet it transpires his manager was talking to Essendon last month. AND he dropped the demand on GWS with only 3 days to go in the trade period.

A supporter of a club that has Adrian “I am just too generous for my own good” Dodoro as head of list management?

Wow just sums it up completely.

Just read that Daniel Talia will miss the 2022 season to allow his foot to fully heal. That’s his career done then.

Good work Tiges on not getting him.
