If their are two meanings to the rules and one meaning meant a better outcome for Carlton, then we meant the other one.

According to Fox Sports, they will trade the two state league players/mature aged picks AND draft picks as well for McGovern.
He said plural...plural state leaguers and draft picks. 2 picks in mid 20s he said on Fox.So giving up both of these for one McGovern, who is a B grade player.

I would have preferred keeping one of the state based players, McGovern can’t be that good, surely? He is worth equivalent of 4 players?



Why is Carlton throwing kitchen sink at a player who has never featured in top 3 of b&f at Adelaide anyway?



I am not getting the drafting or recruiting strategy. SPSeton a bit of a fizzler, early days but more possessions needed, Silvagni average as well. Drafting hasn’t exactly set world on fire. Trading average, recruiting average- up s@@t creek without a paddle.



Also, Matty Wright 2nd top goal scorer. Why get rid of him? It isn’t as if there is a wealth of other options. Surely he is better on list than many others? What about using him for Insurance? Goal scoring -what if Curnow gets injured? Who is going to kick the goals? Permanently injured Kreuzer?

Paper bag.

Exhale slowly.

Relax, the AFL will soon make a new rule saying people with the initials MM aren't allowed to go to Carlton (if only they'd told us that 6 years ago!), so it's much ado about nothing.

AFL actively investigating possible draft tampering in SA.

Gaining some momentum.

Alleged that a highly rated, SA based draft prospect told Gold Coast he wasn't leaving SA in the upcoming draft, in an endeavour to slip past the top 4 picks.

Will make for interesting reading if AFL release findings from the investigation.

Cheers

Someone has posted on BF that the AFL have back flipped again and the mature players cannot be traded.
Anyone else heard this?

Funny how Lukocious said today he was happy to go the Suns, not long after the tampering news broke.

In other news Mr Kaplan also said in his twitter post, that we can’t trade the two state league players now. Another rule change on the run.

AFL pulled the plug on the priority pick for Carlton after one of the worst seasons in recent memory citing significant and forcefully put objections from key stakeholders. Clarkson and Scott front and centre. Nothing to do with their own self interest on eve of trade period. Priority pick for us clearly would throw a spanner in the works for their carefully thought through player acquisition strategy. Just a coincidence that Hawks now favouriites to snag Shiel. If Geelong aren’t involved in some complex way in Adelaide Mitch McGovern machinations I would be amazed. Call me paranoid but this whole situation stinks

Don't worry,
I'm sure our President will write a stern email to Gill's secretary outlining his mild disappointment... If he gets around to it...
