    I'm not sure why he was given such a long contract.

    Possibly due to other clubs sniffing.

    I can understand that if he was genuine Best 22, but he's never been held in that regard. If they are sniffing, his market value peaking and clubs are willing to trump a 2 year deal ( imo what we should have been giving), then you'd take that and run.

    His current deal to me seems illogical.

    Edit: scrub that. I forgot his contract was up.

    When you kick 4 goals in a final that'll happen.

    We were all thinking "yes, it has finally clicked"

    And then he goes and gets injured in pre-season again and can't stay fit for the 9th season in a row. Unlike brown he needs a full run at it. I've still got a glimmer of hope left...no surrender, no retreat! Go Maj Go

    Yes we need a mid but schache types don't grow on trees. It's our chance to get a cut price #2 pick in a weak draft. Elite mid comes at pick 4.

    Agree with the above:

    Daw and 21 for Schache.

    Don't get me wrong, I've always been a believer in his potential too.

    LOOK for Adelaide to run at us with 2 x 1st round + 2nd round picks for pick 1-2.

    I thought i read we had a 2 year offer on the table but brisbane had 3 years + more money so we had to go up 1 year. Could be mistaken though. With ambassador payments we probably only pay him a small amount off the salary cap. He brings a lot in terms of marketing and his work with the huddle.

    Howevet, Scott and myself are at the end of our tether.

    Can't he just make sure he keeps away from Brodie Smith's knee?

    This place is boring this year can we talk more about getting Mayne and the pies first 17
    I really want to continue the Daw ride, but I would be very happy with this and Brisbane in the past has shown interest in Majak.

    We were 100% keen, I think we'll look to pick him up as a rookie if he is delisted by adelaide.

    Daw counts as KPF depth. Wood's kind of KPF-ish. And if we have another availability crisis I really liked Durdin's last game in Brisbane.

    "We haven't inquired about Josh and we are probably going to look to spend our pennies elsewhere."

    Key word probably. Does that mean if the Lions are selling low next week or we get a offer for Goldie we may go for him?

    Surely you need 3 genuine rucks on the depth chart. It's just that usually it's #1, a proven backup, and a developing project. Our project is ahead of schedule so we have 3 we know can play senior footy.

    Lol. Because where they were originally drafted is the most important thing.
