LAST DAY OF TRADING PODCAST – Monday, October 3

4:55 p.m. — PICK SWAP WITH THE PORT AND THE DEMONS

Melbourne traded Picks 33, 43 and 53 in exchange for Port Adelaide’s Pick 27.

On the Draft Value Index, the Power clearly got the better end of the deal – and would have “won” it even if they had only received 33 and 53.

But the Demons say they weren’t going to use Choice 43 and 53 anyway, which means they basically upgraded their Choice 33 for nothing.

“We were involved in a pick swap today which allows us to improve our hand in this year’s draft,” Melbourne roster manager Tim Lamb told Melbourne Media.

“We were able to do that by grouping together three selections, two of which we had no intention of using in the national draft this year.

“Our philosophy has always been to try to improve our draft hand each year and we are delighted to be able to acquire the No. 27 selection through this transaction.”

Pick 27 is also closer to what Collingwood wants in exchange for Brodie Grundy.

4:50 p.m. — JONES BACK AT THE KENNEL

Liam Jones is back in the AFL system after signing with the Western Bulldogs in free agency.

After retiring from Carlton due to his reluctance to get a Covid shot, Jones was declared a free agent and is now joining his former club.

The Blues get a third-round pick, currently No. 49, as compensation.

4:45 p.m. – MCSTAY MCGOES AT LES PIES

Collingwood has officially signed their $3 million free agent target, Dan McStay.

The Brisbane striker will join the Magpies on a five-year deal worth $600,000 per season.

McStay’s versatility – playing forward, back and in the ruck – saw Collingwood target him early in the season, with his move reported for months.

As compensation, the Lions will receive a second-round pick, currently No. 35.

3:50 p.m. – THE NORTH’S SURPRISE DEMAND FOR JHF

North Melbourne asked for Zak Butters in exchange for No. 1 pick Jason Horne-Francis, reports Mitch Cleary of Seven.

Port Adelaide have rejected the application for the young gun, who has two years left on his contract.

The Kangaroos want more than the 2022 Power (No. 8) and 2023 first-round picks for Horne-Francis with another pick or player likely to close the deal.

A player of Butters’ caliber included in the deal would have allowed Port to reduce the quality of outgoing picks.

Other Power players like Miles Bergman and Josh Sinn have been publicly presented as options to be included in the deal.

3:45 p.m. – FREO IS MORE BUSY WITH SUN KEEN FOR MOVE

Fremantle’s busy trading period is set to get even busier with out-of-contract Gold Coast striker Josh Corbett naming them as his new home, The West’s Jordan McArdle reports.

The Dockers won the race ahead of Essendon and Melbourne after Corbett visited their facilities last week.

He could replace Griffin Logue, who is en route to North Melbourne, for the modest price of a future fourth-round pick.

But Corbett may have to wait for team-mate Jeremy Sharp to move as well, with the Western Australia winger looking to head home.

The Suns are keen to secure a tougher deal for Sharp and may consider future second- or third-round picks soon to be secured by Fremantle from North Melbourne.

3:00 p.m. – SAINTS EYE OFF CORDY

St Kilda are reportedly eyeing Western Bulldogs defender Zaine Cordy.

Damian Barrett told AFL Trade Radio the Saints are looking at Cordy, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Western Bulldogs roster manager Sam Power told Trade Radio on Monday: “We’ve been in constant dialogue with his management, he’s a free agent and he has the right to look around.

“We will continue to have discussions throughout the trading period with his management to see where this lands.”

Cordy, 25, has played 118 games for the Dogs, including 14 in 2022.

2:40 p.m. – ACRES NOW ONE BLUE

And Blake Acres has officially joined Carlton, traded for a future third-round pick as previously reported.

We are now awaiting confirmation of Liam Jones’ free agency transfer.

1:20 p.m. – JONES, ACRES DEALS LOOM

Liam Jones and Blake Acres are both set to land in their new homes on Tuesday afternoon to kick off the day’s moves.

AFL media Callum Twomey reports that paperwork is being filed for Jones to join the Western Bulldogs on a three-year contract.

Jones returns to Whitten Oval, where he played 66 of his 161 AFL games before resurrecting his career as a defender at Carlton.

The 31-year-old retired at the end of 2021 after refusing to comply with the AFL’s Covid vaccine mandate.

Acres, meanwhile, is set to be traded from Fremantle to Carlton in exchange for a future third-round pick, according to AFL media Riley Beveridge.

The 26-year-old is set to join his third club after a previous stint at St Kilda. This comes after a strong season for the Dockers winger, averaging 21.7 eliminations per game.

11:45 a.m. – REVEAL OF MCDONALD-TIPUNGWUTI’S MEETING WITH FREO

Retired Bombers striker Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti is eyeing a return to the AFL, with Fremantle leading Essendon in the livewire race, according to three-time Coleman medalist Matthew Lloyd.

McDonald-Tipungwuti announced his retirement in May this year after playing 126 senior games for the Bombers since 2016, scoring 153 goals during that span.

It came after the 29-year-old cult hero dealt with personal matters over the past year, having not appeared at AFL level since Round 21 in 2021 before struggling to regain his full fitness.

Channel 7’s Ryan Daniels revealed that Fremantle manager Justin Longmuir met with McDonald-Tipungwuti two weeks ago to discuss his potential return.

Daniel reports that if he decided to join the Dockers, McDonald-Tipungwuti would join the club after the draft as a player in training.

Lloyd revealed earlier that McDonald-Tipungwuti attended Essendon’s Best and Fairest Awards on Monday night and is now eyeing a return to the top tier to potentially move west.

“He plans to return to football to play in the AFL next year,” Lloyd said on AFL Commercial Radio.

“Essendon are very keen on him joining Essendon, but Fremantle Dockers are leading the race to have Anthony next year.

“Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti is considering moving to Western Australia to play for Fremantle if he decides he will work and play AFL football again.

“The Bombers would like him to play and Fremantle are leading the way right now.”

11:45 am – FRANCIS HANDS IN DEMAND

Essendon key defender Aaron Francis has made his trade request to Sydney official, Channel 7’s Mitch Cleary reports.

The former Pick 6 struggled for regular opportunities at the Bombers, playing 54 games in seven seasons.

And the 25-year-old is now backing himself to crack the 2022 grand runner-up’s best 22 while wanting a ‘fresh start’ in a new city.

Jon Ralph of the Herald Sun reported on Fox Footy Trading day that the 25-year-old should go to the Swans for the modest price of a fourth- or fifth-round pick, while Cleary revealed his expected value is a third-round pick.

10:30 a.m. – THE CONTRACT REPORTED BY ROOS GUN ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’

Essendon legend Matthew Lloyd believes Tarryn Thomas’ reported $700,000 salary is “irresponsible” roster management by the Kangaroos as the youngster ponders his future.

The sun herald reports Thomas is contracted for two more seasons worth up to $700,000 per campaign, and Gold Coast is hovering around the old Pick 8, while Sydney, where he has close family, had interest earlier this year.

However, the report says his salary and the challenge of acquiring him from North Melbourne, who are also dealing with trade demand for Jason Horne-Francis, means Thomas is more likely to stay at the club.

What does Taranto mean for the Tigers? | 02:37

speaking on AFL Commercial Radio, Lloyd criticized the Roos for offering such a lucrative contract to a young player.

“If that’s true…it’s irresponsible. Absolutely irresponsible from North Melbourne,” said three-time medalist Coleman.

“I think he finished (top 10) in the best and fairest (last year) but still a good season to get to $700,000, that’s irresponsible from North Melbourne.

“(The report) says clubs like Sydney, where he has close family, have expressed interest during the season, but his salary and the difficulty of extracting him from Arden Street means he is more likely to stay despite being open to a fresh start.

“So his contract may be holding him back more than his desire (to be there).”

6:00 a.m. – CARD OFFERS FOR TUESDAY

A busy trade period has been expected for some time and with three deals completed on Monday – two deals and the signing of a free agent – ​​that pace should continue on Tuesday.

A number of free agents, whose new homes are already known, have yet to log in while there are simpler trades expected to take place in the next 24-48 hours.

Bigger moves like Brodie Grundy to Melbourne, Josh Dunkley to Brisbane and Jason Horne-Francis to Port Adelaide will likely take a bit longer, or at least require other deals to be done first.

As the Herald Sun’s Jon Ralph explained during Fox Footy’s Monday night trading day, up to four moves could take place on Tuesday – although, as always, exact timeframes are impossible to predict and depend on the whims of market participants. clubs involved.

Blake Acres should be done. It would be a three-year, million-dollar (total) deal at Carlton, and it would be a future third-round pick for Freo,” Ralph said on Fox Footy.

Liam Jones should become a Western Bulldog again. Three-year deal on about $300,000 per year.

“And Dan McStay should also go to the Pies, for around $600,000 a year. They believe he can play as a ruckman, as a key defender and as a key striker, they like his versatility.

Adelaide could finally land its big fish with “the pieces in place” for the Izak Rankine OK.

He will go along with a fourth-round pick for the Crows, with Gold Coast receiving pick 5 and a future third-round selection.
