#AFL Trade Day 1


Day One of the AFL Trade period has lived up to the hype starting with the Father/Son nomination draft.

Joe Daniher will continue the Daniher name down at Windy Hill with the Bombers selecting the young tall with pick 10, after Port Adeliade nominated their draft-pick 7 for the young tall.

Melbourne was able to avoid selecting Jack Viney at pick 3 and were able to select Jack, son of former club captain Todd, with their second-round pick 26.

Western Bulldogs acquired Lachie Hunter for its third-round selection pick 35.

It did not take long for the first trade of the 2012 gillette trade period to occur, with the Gold Coast Suns trading pick 2 in exchange for GWS mini draft selection 1. Gold Coast have indicated they will select WA prodigy Jack Martin. Martin will follow in the footsteps of last years number 1 mini draft selection Jaeger O’Meara also at the Gold Coast Suns.

Essendon announced that they had traded free agent Angus Monfries to the Port Adelaide Football club for pick 48. In a trade that was a win/win for both clubs, Monfries, 26, who could have left the football club for free without the Essendon football club receiving any compensation. Instead they gain a pick while Port Adelaide who have lost both Pearce and Chaplin through free agency are still eligible for compensation.

UPDATE
Former Adelaide Crow Tom Lee has reportedly been traded from GWS as a Pre-Listed player to the St. Kilda football club. The key forward had an infamous 1 year tenure the Adelaide Football Club leaving with one year to run on his contract. Does this mean St. Kilda are likely to be out of the Josh Caddy deal? If this trade goes through this may give the strongest indication that the Geelong Cats are in pole position to recruit the Gold Coast player.

Western Bulldog Full-Back Brian Lake and pick 27 has been traded to the Hawthorn Football club in exchange for first-round selection 21 & second-round 41.

AFL Trade Period


The annual AFL trade period has now officially closed, with a host of star players finding new clubs.

The biggest news of the day was Carlton star and Coleman Medalist Brendan Fevola finding his way North to play with the Lions in exchange for you Victorian Lachlan Henderson and draft selection 12.

Fevola kicked 575 goals from 187 games for the club and leaves with know animosity towards the club, understanding his actions placed himself and the club in the difficult predicament.

“It was absolutely disgusting, my behaviour. I’ve been in trouble a bit over the time and you never really see what’s happened, and to watch those tapes of the Footy Show you just look at it and think ‘I don’t want to be that person’ and you don’t want to be back there again and it was quite embarrassing,” he said

The former Blue admitted he has placed his former club in a difficult situation and hoped to learn from the experiance.

“Hopefully I have left the wild times behind now,” he said.

“I’m 28 now and I’ve got to grow up a little bit and hopefully this change brings that.”

“Obviously I had too much to drink and I don’t think I missed too many people that night. I’ve apologised to the AFL, to the club, to my supporters, to the players, to other media that were there and I want to express my deep sorriness again.”

In over trade news Port Adelaide star Shaun Burgoyne was granted his wish, moving to Hawthorn in a complicated 4 way trade, that saw Hawk Mark Williams move to Essendon and Bomber defender Jay Nash make the switch back to his native state – South Australia.

Port Adelaide now has three picks in the first round of November’s NAB AFL Draft – No.8, 9 and 16 – which Rohde said was a “terrific position”.

he added, “We wish Shaun all the best at Hawthorn.”

The Western Bullgogs finally have a key target in attack after acquiring disgruntled Swan Barry Hall on a 2 year deal.

Hall stated – “I guess there’s always going to be question marks, and I’m certainly not going to shy away from that. I’m going to do my very best to repay the Bulldogs for showing faith in me.

“I can’t promise anything. I’m not going to beat around the bush or anything like that, but I think I can get on top of it.

“It can end pretty badly if it does happen, and I’m very aware of that.”

Overall the annual AFL trade period was up this year with 23 players finding new homes in comparison to just 7 in 2008.
