Based on previous years, we about to enter the time of year when every delisted player becomes a potential Docker's recruit. Ben Brown is simply the first of many that will pop up on Dockerland as a potential good fit.
Let's just cut to the chase and say that anyone whose names shows up at www.afl.com.au/news/retirements-and-delistings has:
(i) been seen looking at online Coburn/Cottesloe/North Fremantle realestate ads
(ii) has enrolled their kids at a Peth school
(iii) has been seen sipping a latte with Peter Bell
(iv) was a fan of Freo as a kid
(v) has a relative in WA who is seriously ill
(vi) has a good relationship with JL from his days at WCE/Collingwood/Koorda,
(vii) his girlfriend wants to start up a fashion label in WA,
(viii) his girlfriend is pregnant/home sick/secretively in love with Nat Fyfe
or
(viii) this year's trending gossip starters:
(a) no longer follows his current club on his Insta account and replaced it with Freo.
(b) his Facebook profile has changed from "in a relationship" to "single/looking for a new partner/want to play for Freo"

Im happy to be corrected Shane (as my memory is rapidly deteriorating!) but I dont remember spruiking too many delisted players as potential pick ups for Freo. I tend to think that because we arent a "destination club" we are likely to have to pay overs for anyone to consider us. Holding on to talented draftees is probably a more sensible approach.

Sure...that's what everyone says, and then Charlie Cameron's manager is seen playing a round of golf with Minjee Lee's dad and all bets are off.

You've only gone and given Hackdorn a couple of baseless rumour leads he hadn't thought of...

Its just senseless talk, as if any of us have an idea what we need, who wants to come to Fremantle and how much we should pay for the player!

Fyfe and our third round pick for GWS' first and second pick and Steven Coniglio.

I must say, HH, in that case I would rather be on the outside of the window looking in than vice versa.

What's the bet we get an "Ironically" Font before we get the "sarcastica" font??

Now that would be ironic!

Can Minjee Lee play? Could be handy on a wing for Freo AFLW.
