Seriously? Why would Freo even want to have a look at Mason Wood, as reported on the AFL website this morning.

An injury-ridden forward, of which we seem to have a plethora of at the moment....

Mason Wood would be pretty handy materials for the rebuild I would have thought.

Wood is average, he's basically Shane Kersten mk II. When we have Lobb, Hogan, Taberner, Cox and McCarthy, he would be a complete waste of a trade and salary.

Get a kid in the draft who looks promising and let him sit on the list for a couple of years and develop rather than waste anything on a 26yo 192cm tall who can't even hold a place in the Roos line up. It's a ridiculous suggestion.

For comparisons sake, Cox (194cm) kicked 18 goals as a part time forward last season in a RL coached team at the age of 19. Wood kicked 22 as a full time forward and that is the most he's kicked in a season (sitting on 20 this year with 1 game to go). There is no good argument to getting Wood, even if he were free.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Our priorities have to be midfielders with kicking skills. The way we currently deliver the ball even the best forwards in the game would be useless.

I thought it was strange to see Mason Wood linked to us.. Maybe we are looking to offload Cox or Tabs? Seems strange.. I’m keen on getting Tim Kelly and sticking to the draft

I's like to see us trade Ed langdon for Angus Brayshaw straight swap or if they can't get that done , see if Richmond would trade Shai Bolton for Ed Langdon.

No chance Cox or Tabs is going anywhere unless Port want to pay us big overs for him.
they wanted Coxy last year.
Big No to Tim Kelly.
Yes to 4 draft picks in the top 25.
Yes to 4 or 5 quality WA boys - Robertson, Henry, Jackson, Taylor & Sharp.
Now that would freshen the joint up a bit!!

If we lose two Hills and Langdon we will be the slowest team in the comp in addition to having even less effective delivery (from the Hills)
We need speed and silky skills, not tall forwards.

You forgot Trent Rivers Demo. If we get Sumich on board as coach you would think he could help us pick the eyes out of the draft.

What we need to do is pick the best available footballers, don't worry about what position they play. We have enough good players to fill 2 teams, with a new broom in the tactics & strategy box. The only position we need to worry about is a ruckman. ( Oh, and a forward pocket if Matera leaves.)

Walter - you always look slow if you dont have the ball, are always chasing or turn it over alot.
Give us a few silky skilled young fellas and we will look much faster
