The Mongrel Punt Guide to Buying A Unicorn

With the now-official word that Luke Jackson has requested a trade back home to WA – perhaps the worst-kept secret in football over the last few months, we are faced with a situation where either Fremantle or West Coast will be picking up a former number three overall draft pick who should be about to enter his prime.

What is a fair price to pay for such a talent? What would someone be prepared to pay for a young man who has been termed a “unicorn” by some in the football media?

And who is willing to pay it, or even pay overs to secure the talents of such a mythic beast?


Uh oh… Mongrel Paywall. Don’t you hate that? This is where I try to provide value to our Mongrel Members. They will receive access to five or so exclusive columns this week and also get access to HB’s finals reviews early. Wanna join them and support the best damn independent footy site you’ll find?
