Dunno...but to me it's pretty obvious what's happened...if what CC13 is saying is true; then Liddle told people at the lunch it's done while telling the media it's nearly done?

Seems plausible to me- or no?
It's absolutely plausible, but it reads to me that the evidence for it definitively being done was the wording of the article, in which Liddle wasn't exactly definitive at all - which is why I pointed it out.

Straight swap for Darcy Fogarty?
This would be a shocking result.

I agree with your reading..

The word "Hopefully" is either a respectfull acknowledgement of an arms length negotiation that hasn't been completed but is tracking well OR a positive messaging to the faithfull - either way - it isn't a done deal.

that said: I would be shocked to see Cripps go somewhere else.

Actually no. I thought I was pretty clear. At a pre-Easter function for 16 people he was definitive. I heard it with my own ears

I wasn’t at the Freo lunch but people I know described it to me as a done deal. Anyhow not interested in having every comment dissected to the nth degree. Cripps is staying - feel free to dismiss

When was the last time a CEO came out and said a deal was a few weeks away and the player left?

Think of it through the media impact. Liddle makes the public comments Fox Footy reports and if Cripps leaves he will be dragged over the hot coals. He was only so forthcoming because he knows the deal is done. Which is what he has told the inner circle.

FYI before an AFL contract outside standard terms and over a certain amount is signed (not sure of amount) it is sent to the player’s manager and the AFL for review. It then goes to our Board for approval (if over $500k or more than 3 years is our threshold last time I asked). There is at least a 14 day time period between terms being agreed and formal signing.

It wasn't particularly clear. I'm not the only one to query it.

Why would you reference the article as some sort of proof to back up the claim that he's definitively staying?
