Anchors, I'm happy to have him, just want it done on our terms, not his or his managers. The club is bigger than any individual.

Media are all over the shop.  I know usually around this time there's lots of speculation and information. 

This year though I think they have no idea what is going on.  They are contradicting each other and at times they contradict their own information.  They reacting hysterically to the trade season starting and some decisions made by clubs.  They are fighting for a news break or any information and yesterday there was nothing for them to write about. 

It makes it appear Freo are flip flopping around but this most certainly isn't the case. 

The media is flip flopping around.  Freo are going through a process.

Correct Goby.

The media see what Fremantle are doing as a blight on trade week, because they wont bow down to pressure from other clubs who want deals done to suit them.

Has anyone here ever heard of horse trading?

Negotiations 101 - use the media to your advantage, but stay silent otherwise. A mega deal was always on the cards and now looks it will come to fruition. It required the input of several clubs, (more than what is revealed), including Freo.

Why not turn off the white noise and wait to hear from the horses mouth? Patience, purple supporters.  Hogan and Lobb will look good in purple.  Everything else was just distraction.

Oh dear oh dear someone is upset because we don't agree.It is a forum for discussion.That is what we are doing discussing the issues.
You think we are morons and don't know how thing work!!!!

As I said before, we read the same story but have different ideas of what it means.Some people aren't right all the time.others get it right as well.
Only one noise and it is disturbing.

Stop being so melodramatic Anchors and stop attacking me, personally. Why so angry? Because I dared to comment? Tut, tut. Don't take any notice of me, wouldn't that be easier?

You have better knowledge and information than I have time for, and that is reality. I understand that. You and others keep up with it all. Goby is closest to the mark, for mine. But I still have a few contacts who don't speak to the media.  Maybe I am hearing porkies, who knows?

Every comment here seems stem from some media tart whose job it is to get more readers/viewers. There is absolutely no rule that states they have to be truthful.

Discussions? Opinions? Comments?  All much in the same category IMHO

I for one am too guilty of listening to every type of media this trade period, quite ashamed of myself actually, the bastards never usually sucker me in. I think nerves has got the better of Frosty this time in, and the fact we played so well last trade period. Oh well it's done and dusted tomorrow and the bottle can cop a hiding. Hate the media--Baaastads

Vivian, I do not have inside information.I read it in the press and make my own decisions on what is wheat and what is chaff.I talk to people on on the net who think football.

I offer my opinions to those here.I do not press my opinion on the other posters here.

No they are not all the same .We discuss what we hear or read. Then we express our opinions.Then others make comment on the opinion provided.They are not the same.

Some will discuss, other will tell.

We both know that you and I have had a differing opinion on lots of things both here and at the former Fox site.I told you then that you can not tell me what I can or should think.It is the same here.

Now I've really had enough!  I come on occasionally to distract myself from my ongoing life threatening issues and don't have to put up with this from anyone. Ever.

I have tried to humour you and talk reason but have lost patience. You do not even read my comments properly or choose to misinterpret them.

Anchorman, you mentioned the Fox site. It was a great place to talk footy with several thousand subscribers and hundreds posting on a weekly basis across all teams and other sports as well.

Well I have kept my mouth shut long enough about that can of worms and what happened to turn our friendship. I will think overnight about whether I will fully disclose what led up to, and eventuated, after I reported some pornographic PM's I received from you. Then ignored you completely for a while. After a while, when I said nothing publicly, you turned on me completely and started with the personal and ever increasing vitriolic comments to me. And I was the only female posting often on Fox.

That is enough for now.

In the meantime, Anchorman, I still have those PM's archived, BTW. So, I respectfully suggest you shut the f*ck up about me!!!

I apologise in advance to others if I have caused discomfort, but there is no other member that has been targeted as much here, which is totally unnecessary.

Rest and sleep for me now. Listening to Roberta Flack.... didn't she sing some wonderful lullabies, including "Where is the Love"

I might ask Brisbane where the love is in the morning, and they may on-trade that and ask Collingwood where is the love. And then Collingwood may offer up a little love...but it seems everyone hates Collingwood, so someone is gonna have to offer up a little bit more.

Seriously Viv you need to stop.  Those kind of accusations do not belong here and he has no way of challenging them.  

I think you should delete your post. Please

If not I would like to bring this to the forum moderator to delete it.

There's something different about this trade season frosty. I think where previously there was lots of rubbish there was also some good information but this year the media seems desperate and erratic. It could be because trade radio really ramped up and took a whole slice of the action and left some other media outlets lacking.  There has been some really outrageous media reports this year.  It could be the clubs or managers using the media but that has happened every other year as well.  

I quite like trade season and every year follow it closely but this year I have been really disappointed and disgusted with the way players, clubs, AFL, managers and the media have handle this time of year.  It's like they have raised the veil and given us a peek inside. 

Ugly!

They say supporters arent "mature enough" to deal with player movement in this sport but I think we are. Look at how the industry has handled itself this year. 

What a mess.

have you seen the fairy tale on Fox Sports written by "STAFF REPORTERS" in regard to Fremantle trading one of our signings from last year, plus a couple of others?Put Cerra or Brayshaw up to lure Hogan.Gimmee a break.
They seem to think they have licence to write anything they want as long as it puts Fremantle in a bad light.
Also I see where Caroline Wilson has slipped into Dayne Beams.Saying that Brissie are sick of him.
Not sure what to read into it.She seems to think Beams has not been truthful about wanting to stay.And here we were , being led to believe that Fremantle started the rumour about Beams wanting out.
