    Yeah he did. That's probably true, but honestly most teams should be chasing Fyfe, so that's not groundbreaking by any means.

    Superstar already I agree but I dont think we will see him peak for another couple of years as crazy as that may sound.

    If you watch him closely last year, he was the Bullies crunch player in close games.

    Agree that he will be even better.

    Would offer him more money than Fyfe... but isn't going anywhere.

    Nah I know its a pipe deam but if we are going to dream (Fyfe) we may as well dream big.

    My main idea was that 1.5mil would be better spent on someone like Bont who may not be in the top 3 players right at this moment in time and who I doubt could command such a cheque from most clubs just yet but whos price will only rise with time.

    I would be very surprised if 10 clubs didn't have Bont as their number 1 or 2.

    Fyfe and Bontempelli. Who is next? Or before?

    You reckon they would throw 1.5m at him now?

    If we had a spare 1.5mil to chase a FA then I would look to get 2 guns then just 1 in Fyfe.

    That could potentially get us both Martin and Rockliff as free agents at seasons end.
    $900k - 1mil = Martin
    $500k - $600k = Rocky

    All unlikely but how I would play the market

    It would certainly get a mention. He is in a buyers market. Clubs will bid above just to get him

    With a year out I wonder if he'll have a quiet year as he comes up to speed.

    I would absolutely love to get Martin and/or Fyfe.

    However, our entire trading history shows that it just isn't in our clubs DNA, and I would be gobsmacked if either were even close to being at Adelaide next year.

    If he doesn't play that well, his 1.5 mil is way off the mark

    Fyfe's attraction to playing for AFC isn't a big pay cheque, as Freo can match anything we can offer...but to play with his idol Sloaney. :)

    To land both Fyfe and Martin we would have to get rid of McGovern, Lever and Lynch. I rate McGovern the most out of the trio but I'd do it to get a flag in 2018

    So now Cripps has joined his manager and Carlton saying Kornes is full of crap.

    Kornes has gone to Rooch school, where you just make stuff up to grab headlines.

    Gone are the days of actually seeking out a journalistic source...
