‘A formula that works’: The Dees’ trade success

Melbourne were the most interesting players on day three of trade period, and on today’s Real Footy podcast special episode, Jake Niall and Daniel Cherny discuss the moves the Demons made and how it builds on their work in previous years. They have not only had good strategy but have excelled in the execution in recent years.

We dissect the reasons behind each club’s involvement in the four-way trade for picks involving Melbourne, the Bulldogs, Adelaide and St Kilda, and how it might affect any trade for Jordan Dawson – which now seems set to go down to the wire.

Meanwhile, a trade between the Suns and Dockers is looming and is set to involve Will Brodie and some picks as part of a salary dump for the Gold Coast. Will we see more of these going forward, and the salary cap as more of an equalisation measure than the draft?

Plus, will Jeremy Finlayson make a move to defence after the deal to get him to Port Adelaide got done? Why do players favour moves to Carlton? And where might Tyson Stengle end up?
