While there were not one but two elephants in the room, there was really just one that had the AFL star champing at the bit.

One, of course, was Willie Rioli (click here for that story) but the other was *that* report.

It all kicked off on Monday, when Channel Seven’s Tom Browne reported that West Coast would consider trading out Yeo for Carlton star Patrick Cripps.

The idea being that trading Yeo, who has been dogged by a persistent groin injury, would free up enough salary cap space to sign Cripps.
