    Hambling sounds a bit like desperation.
    I think our defence is generally quite good, but gets exposed when our midfield is performing badly. Hopefully improved coaching and structures, along with Jordan, and potentially Dow, can help turn that around.

    Reckon plenty of people would have said the same about Frampton last year. I'm not for list cloggers but think the Pies have demonstrated sometimes when you've got a critical deficit getting a quick fix can be better than waiting for the perfect solution.

    He played a full season in the WAFL this season, couldn’t break into Freo’s team. If he passes a medical he’s a cheap back up/short term option until we can develop our own key defenders

    Hamling would be a good get if cheap.

    We know it's silly season time, when even Cal Twomey has put his name to a yarn on AFL.com that 'clubs are weighing up whether to make a play for Clayton Oliver'.

    Like, I'm sure clubs are thinking about whether they would benefit from recruiting Errol Gulden, or Charlie Curnow, or Nick Daicos.

    (Having said that, in the fantasy world where he is up for grabs, whatever Melbourne wants.)
    'Delicious' is a fun word to say

    The fact Hamling could not get a game in an underperforming Dockers team might tell you something. Would he be any better than Melican, Francis, Arnold or perhaps even Buller in that position

    I absolutely hate trade radio but seem to get sucked in without fail for a few minutes every year. The amount of dribble that gets thrown around is ridiculous. Not to mention listening to ads every two minutes. I think it's the speculation that I paradoxically love and hate. What I wouldn't give to have a confidential cuppa with Kinnear this time every year instead!

    Hambling is 194 - doesn't add a difference to what we have; or fill the gap defending the 200+ forwards such as the Kings, McKay and Daniher IMHO

    Hamling had an ankle injury which became infected and was out of footy for well over a year. Freo’s defence has good players, although they were disrupted with injury and trying to work on synergy. When fit, he’s a good player who has missed a lot of footy in recent times.
