Former Blues list manager Stephen Silvagni headlines AFL Trade Radio
AFL Trade Radio kicks off today with former Blues list manager Stephen Silvagni headlining a blockbuster lineup of football experts covering the latest trade news.
Silvagni will join AFL Trade Radio regulars including the AFL’s number one news breaker Damian Barrett and Port Adelaide games record holder Kane Cornes in dissecting and analysing all of the deals and the drama.
Talking with Garry Lyon and Tim Watson on 1116 SEN, Silvagni said this year’s AFL Trade period was shaping-up to be unique.
“It’s going to be a fascinating period – particularly with draft picks as well. Basically, the bulk of the national draft are Victorian players and they haven’t played this year, so as a club you’d be really wary of how many picks you want in this particular draft vs future picks knowing that the pool next year could be a lot stronger,” he said.
Now in its 10th year, AFL Trade Radio has become a popular source for headlines during the trade period, even topping the All Australian Podcast ranker last October.
AFL Trade Radio host Damian Barrett promised “insider” access to all the big player movements.
“As it has done since day one, AFL Trade Radio will provide behind-scenes access that no one else gets to all the trades, often before they happen, and we can’t wait to kick off tomorrow,” he said.
AFL Trade Radio broadcast 156 hours of radio and 130 hours of live video across AFL.com.au and the AFL Live app last year, with syndicated windows across the SEN.
