Bombers aim for in-demand SunEssendon has emerged as a serious player in the chase for Gold Coast young gun Jaeger OMeara.ESPN understands the Bombers are seriously attempting to trump Hawthorns offer to lure the 2013 Rising Star winner.Armed with the No.1 pick, Essendon could use the prized selection in exchange for the 22-year-old midfielder. The Bombers would also seek one of the Suns first-round picks - probably No.8 - to sweeten the deal.OMeara, who has missed the last two seasons with a serious knee injury, has nominated the Hawks as his preferred club.But the Hawks salary cap pressures, which will likely result in the club off-loading club champion Sam Mitchell to West Coast, are hampering the clubs ability to negotiate a trade for OMeara.The Hawks have an ageing midfield in need of rejuvenation. As part of that process, the club this week secured hard-nosed, in-and-under player Tom Mitchell from Sydney. ? Champion midfielder Jordan Lewis also reportedly considered a move to Melbourne before the Hawks rejected the possibility.Mitchell move a masterstroke: Parkin Legendary football figure and former Hawthorn premiership coach, David Parkin, believes Alastair Clarksons push for Sam Mitchell to defect to West Coast is a masterstroke, with Hawthorn likely to reap the rewards by having the four-time premiership star return as their next senior coach.Mitchell is considering a move to the Eagles as a player - if the right deal can be done - before likely taking charge as one of the clubs assistant coaches from 2018.The 34-year-old, who collected his fifth Peter Crimmins Medal last week, was presented with the left-field suggestion by Clarkson on Brownlow Medal night and asked to think it over. Mitchell and his wife quickly decided it was a great opportunity for the family.Parkin, who captained and coached the Hawks to two premierships, says the trade could equip Mitchell with the skills to return to Waverley as a credentialed coach.When you think it through, it will be the best thing for Sam probably at this point in his career and it will be the best thing for Hawthorn now in what they have to do in their recharge and what they need from maybe as Sam as a coach in the future, Parkin told ESPN.Parkin says the trade will be a win-win for both clubs and could slingshot the Eagles back into premiership contention.West Coast are going to get a very good player that might help them win a premiership and theyll get a bloke with probably the greatest football nous and understanding that I have had the privilege to work with, other than Brett Ratten, he said.Hawthorn have got to rebuild their midfield. Theyve got the three oldest inside players finishing, so theyve got to do something about it.Eagles coach Adam Simpson is a graduate of Hawthorns successful coaching panel and still has a close relationship with Clarkson.Mitchell is contracted to the Hawks for next season after signing a one-year deal in July.While holidaying in New Zealand this week, the 307-game player rang SEN radio on Wednesday morning - once the rumours hit the airwaves - to say he was excited about the prospect of heading to the Eagles.I didnt go to the club and say I want to go to West Coast, Mitchell said. Clarko came over and said, as a friend, Is that something youd be interested in?And you could have knocked me over with a feather to be honest. Its the first time in my 15-year career, that Ive ever been a chance to be involved in a trade so its a bit of an awkward situation at the moment and I cant jump into either camp at the moment.Mitchell could yet be awarded the 2012 Brownlow Medal, along with Richmonds Trent Cotchin, should the AFL strip the award from Essendons Jobe Watson after the Bombers latest challenge to doping findings failed.Hawks departure ruffles feathersWhile things are running beautifully for the Hawks on the field - the Mitchell move to West Coast seemingly a Clarkson stroke of genius - off the field, well, things are slightly bumpy.Chris Fagan, until recently Clarksons loyal and long-standing lieutenant, has ruffled some important feathers with his decision to head north and coach Brisbane.Clarkson himself is not happy, claiming Fagans discussions with Brisbane - which began late in the season and came to a head in the week before the Hawks first final - had disrupted the reigning premiers finals campaign. He felt Fagan was distracted by the discussions and did not perform at his best.The Hawks were bundled out in straight sets by Geelong and the Western Bulldogs.Fagan, who was presented as the Lions coach on October 4, was effectively told not to attend the Hawks best-and-fairest award four days later.So theyre a ruthless lot down there at Hawk HQ: either youre with them or youre agin em.The Hawks will now need to find someone in the coaches box to keep a tightish rein on Clarksons not insubstantial ego - and occasional flashes of temper.Assistants need assistanceAt least Fagan was given the chance of seeing out the season at Hawthorn - in defiance of a recent trend in the AFL.In the past few seasons, if assistant coaches have been in discussions with rival clubs about possible coaching roles, they have been shown the door - even on the eve of the finals.Brett Montgomery got the boot from the Western Bulldogs in the lead-up to the finals this year, and Brendan Bolton left Hawthorn at a similar stage last year after declaring he was going for the Carlton job.Brenton Sanderson was sidelined by Geelong late in 2011 after winning the Adelaide job. In that same year, Mark Neeld was ushered out by Collingwood after landing the main role at Melbourne.Clarkson himself was shown the door by Port Adelaide after winning the Hawthorn job before seasons end in 2004.Montgomery was at training at Whitten Oval on Tuesday August 9, but was cleaning out his desk the following day so he could pursue other opportunities in the AFL.That was thought to involve the soon-to-be-vacant Brisbane senior coaching job - which, of course, ended up going to Fagan.Now Montgomery is a minister without portfolio and looking for his next opportunity in AFL coaching ranks.The ruthless way in which he was sent packing by the Bulldogs drew the ire of former AFL Coaches Association boss, Danny Frawley, who slammed the club for its treatment of the highly-regarded assistant.I dont like it, because I think its put a stain on Brett Montgomery to be brutally honest, Frawley said.You can still coach to the best of your ability at that particular club and then look elsewhere ....I think (senior) coaches better be very, very careful where you come from, to tip assistant coaches out like that puts a stain on them.So what next - maybe an assistant coaches trade period after Round 22 each year?Hasleby points finger at LyonFremantle great Paul Hasleby says he blames coach Ross Lyon for the sides astonishing fall from grace this year, when the Dockers went from 2015 minor premiers to 16th-placed easybeats.The former Freo captain said he felt Lyon had abandoned his coaching philosophies that helped make the club a perennial contender, and win it a berth in its first Grand Final in 2013.I put (our downfall) on Ross Lyon. I think he was the one that changed his philosophy over the pre-season, Hasleby told ESPN.They got some players in from Hawthorn into the coaching structure (including David Hale and Brent Guerra) and I think they tried to play like a different side.As a coach, youve got to stick with what you know and whats been successful for you and as soon as you start changing your philosophy, it just doesnt work.Hasleby anticipates the Dockers will improve markedly next season following a strategic approach to this years trade period.In the course of a disastrous season, the Dockers lost the opening 10 matches of 2016 in what amounted to one of the great collapses of the modern era.Hasleby, who played 208 games for the Purple Haze, believes the players the club is targeting will fill the vacancies left by its departed champions.I think the Dockers are on the right track with the players that theyre targeting, Hasleby said.Clearly over the last seven years at the trade table and at the draft they havent been able to replace Matthew Pavlich with another couple of key forwards.It looks like with (Cameron) McCarthy, (Shane) Kersten, theyre certainly going to add to that.The Dockers are also likely to be bolstered by the arrival of Hawthorns Brad Hill, whos set to reunite with his brother, Stephen.Hasleby highlighted the teams backline as one area for concern, given its lack of key defensive stoppers.I think with the retirement of Luke McPharlin down back, Michael Johnson getting on, we really need to look at replacing those players with some key defenders, he said.I know theyre heavily into Joel Hamling at the moment and he would be a very good fit.I think they can bounce back next year if they get those players in.Behind the scenes during the trade periodFrom wining and dining a players wife, to managers being incentivised to force a trade in exchange for inflated contracts are part of the whacky wheeling and dealings of getting deals across the line, says former agent Ricky Nixon.Nixon, who was once the AFLs highest-profile manager, said clubs go to extraordinary lengths to secure trades during the frenetic end-of-season period.In my time it wasnt uncommon for clubs to fly a players wife interstate, get them to fall in love with the club so they could hound their partner to move there, Nixon told ESPN.Sometimes youd hear stories where agents would make a trade happen because, in return, another client at that club would have their next contract beefed up.Nixon, who established the now defunct Flying Start management company, revealed iconic centre half-forward Wayne Carey nearly became a Geelong player in a deal that would have netted cash-strapped North Melbourne a million dollars.Geelong once offered the Kangaroos a million dollars for Wayne Carey because they were about to actually go under, he said.They (North Melbourne) were pretty much bankrupt and it was going to bail them out financially. It was under serious consideration at the time, but it never happened.Nixon says weve entered a realm where contracts arent worth the paper their written on, with players opting to move clubs, despite being under contract.An interesting one is Bryce Gibbs. His former agent is Justin Reid, now Adelaides list manager. That would have a significant impact on why hes probably going to leave, he said.I dont see anything wrong with it. But out of respect, you wouldnt approach a guy on a five-year contract.Its proof that player contracts dont hold much value anymore.The deregistered agent anticipates Greater Western Sydney to be a significant player at the back-end of trade week.GWS are the team thats holding all the trump cards because they have three picks inside 34 and either everyone wants those picks or players from them, he said.Theyll deal late next week and hold off and see what the best deal for them is.RANDOM FACTS AND FIGURES FROM THE WEEK: 850 - Roughly the number of accredited AFL journalists out there, none of whom got wind of the biggest trade story for years - the Sam Mitchell-to-West Coast bombshell which has been brewing since Brownlow Medal night on September 26.5 - The number of AFL clubs who are yet to take part in the annual plundering of Greater Western Sydney talent. With the announcement that Cam McCarthy had been secured Fremantle, that left only Geelong, North Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney as Giant-free zones.720 - The most number of handballs any player has racked up after 44 career games - and that player is Carlton whizkid, Patrick Cripps.

Cheap Air Max Shoes UK . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Pro Bowl running back Latavius Murray has been ruled out of the Oakland Raiders home game against the San Diego Chargers with a toe injury on his right foot.With Murray out, the rookie duo of fifth-round pick DeAndre Washington and undrafted free agent Jalen Richard, as well as fullback Jamize Olawale, will get the ball.Youre always prepared in case, said Raiders coach Jack Del Rio. Youve got capable guys, guys who have been playing anyways. Well be ready to go.Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Thursday that Murray, who leads the team with 172 rushing yards on 40 carries with three rushing touchdowns, was wearing a protective boot Tuesday and Wednesday. He was working with new cleats in an attempt to play.It did not work.Murray was responsible for 75 percent of the Raiders running plays last season. TThis year, Washington has rushed for 147 yards on 23 carries and Richard has 144 yards on 17 attempts, with a 75-yard TD on his first NFL carry.ddddddddddddTheyre so sharp in pass protection as well as when we get them in the passing game, Musgrave said.
