The Eagles have lost a shitload of experience so far:

OUT: Priddis, Mitchell, Butler, Giles, Petrie (r), Tunbridge (r), Brophy (r)

Free agents LeCras and Mackenzie signed one-year extensions.

Biggest question marks I guess are over Josh Hill, Sharrod Wellingham and Chris Masten heading into trade week. And it seems we're into Fasolo from Collingwood and Ah Chee from Port, but unsure how legit those whispers are. Can't see how either will contribute to the gaping hole in our midfield either. I don't really want to see another year where Simpson all but concedes the space between the 50m arcs and has a gameplan based on counterattacking after intercept marks in defence (Gov, Yeo, Barrass, Hurn).

What are your thoughts on potentially losing Gaff?


Well the Eagles have released a statement to say he's not up for trade:

Eagles shut down Gaff trade talk

He was Club Champion in 2015 but he hasn't seemed the same since he was knocked out with an elbow to the head by that thug Jonas from Port last year. He's also an outside mid in a team that gets smashed in the clearances each and every week. No idea what he would be worth as a trade.

If it wasn't for Port, would anything even be happening this Trade Week?

Anyway, Brandon Ah Chee and Port's future 4th rounder to the Eagles, for our future 3rd rounder.

On paper Ah Chee fills a need but he hasn't done much for Port. Or cost us much. So who knows?

2 weeks is too long, trade week should be 5 days.

Arch is solid but just struggled with the transition to AFL from SANFL. His first instinct is to handball all the time and defer which I think is mainly the issue and he has been behind Wines, SPP and Boak for a spot in the team, with Rockliff coming in he was looking less likely to get any game time this year. If he can make the adjustment and not be so passive in a new environment then he will be a solid player, maybe not always in the first 22 but someone you can depend on when they are in the team has a great leap one of the deadliest and best handballs I've seen and a good size body.

We dominated this trade period though got in Rockliff, Watts and Motlop and were able to trade out all our spuds and get Young and Ah Chee a fresh start where they wanted to go. I reckon we must have a couple of DFA's on the go to as we have traded and lost through retirement a lot of players.

Also agree, a 2 week trade period is useless in the AFL because the team's don't do anything until they are forced to on the last 2 days anyway.

We've lost two Brownlow medallists and have five picks in the top 40 (13, 21, 26, 32, 37), plus Ah Chee.

The last time that happened was 2007. Although back then we then traded 30 and 35 for 22 so we ended up with 4 picks in the top 22. Three of them are still playing, although Scott Selwood and Brad Ebert are now with the clubs they were always destined to play for :arsekick: Hopefully we get at least three 10+ year players with this haul too (but who want to stay).

The rebuild is on :(
