6:00 AM – HOW DOGS CAN HELP RAVENS SWAN COLLAR
A choice swap with the Western Bulldogs could help Adelaide secure her No.1 goal this trade season.
The Crows have previously discussed a trade with Sydney involving Jordan Dawson, who has named Adelaide as his preferred destination for 2022 and beyond.
After offering Dawson an “attractive long-term deal,” according to Sydney football boss Charlie Gardiner, to stay in New South Wales, the Swans now appear poised to play hard at the trading table.
Age reported the Swans had indicated they believed Dawson deserved a top-five pick, but the Crows have already made it clear they intend to take Pick 4 – their first round – in this year’s draft. Adelaide’s second round selection is Pick 23, but Sydney at this point will not accept that selection as a cornerstone of the deal.
Foxfooty.com.au reported on Monday that the Crows were keen to acquire the Bulldogs’ Pick 17 as it could help them close a trade with Sydney and officially secure Dawson.
With the Bulldogs keen to acquire later draft picks to rack up points to match an inevitably early offer on father-son prospect Sam Darcy, the Crows could also use a combination of their 2021 draft picks (Picks 23, 37 and / or 44), as well as future choices, to encourage the Dogs to make a deal. They could then send Pick 17 to the Swans to form the backbone of a deal with Dawson – although it remains to be seen whether Sydney would accept that selection.
“I think it’s important that everyone knows he was and is a big part of our future,” Swans general manager Tom Harley said on the club’s website.
“We had big plans for Jordan and that was reflected, certainly from an offer we made to Jordan, so if there was to be a negotiation there, we would expect that it is respectful and reflects his position in our club and position in the competition and potential.
Dawson was one of the AFL’s most improved players of 2021, appearing in all 23 Sydney games, averaging 22.3 eliminations, a career-high and placing third in best and fairest tally. of the Swans.
He played 64 games for the Swans after being drafted from Robe with Pick 56 in the 2015 National Draft.
