People want to trade him for something in the 20’s. No thanks.
Yeah he is much better than any lucky dip in the draft. Plus he has another 6 yrs in him
Might just get better offer to leave like 4-5 years at good money.
We might just offer 2-3 yrs.

Also plays in a position that we have little depth in, wing. Not many player's on our list are capable of playing full-time wing.

Yeah I gotta feeling he’s going home.. not sure why, but just got the feeling..
He’s the kind of player that’s not going to net us a decent pick in a trade. Unless they give up a player we are interested in, we are better off keeping him. But if he doesn’t want to sign a contract - we could end up with no choice

He’s a free agent and we might get a good pick depending on contract length and dollars. You’d think it would be a 4 year deal based on a top 10 b&f entering the promenof his career. His calf did come at a bad time but if he plays good footy between now and end of year it might not matter.

He will be a loss no doubt.

Yeah I hope he stays, Ive been a fan for a long time and he’s the ideal age we’re screaming out for to bring the kids through but the pull of going home to family and friends for the second half of his footy life wouldn’t surprise me - and I don’t blame him..

I can't fathom how a random 2nd or 3rd rounder for a guy who is a great clubman, disciplined player and hitting his peak years is seen as a great return by anyone.

Trent was a friggin random 2nd rounder in the first place and is entering his mid 20s with 100 games and a little bit of finals experience under his belt. Why would we 'sell' him now?

(yes I know he's FA you get what I mean)

Pick 19 for a rebuilding club like ours is very valuable. It can be packaged with other picks to move us up the order or be used in its own right.

That said - a pick in the 30's/40's would not be worth it - we are better off resigning him.
