not sure how i feel about this.....

"Port throwing all sorts of crazy money at Merrett to sway him.

Will make him the highest paid player on their list by a long way, and one of the highest paid in the comp for the next two years.

In the event that he doesn’t stay loyal to Essendon, that deal will take some beating.

It’s strange that these types of conversations are now happening even before the season starts - scary path we are heading down."

Good. Our club has set themselves up over the last few years to do just this.

I expect the end of the Motlop and Rockliff contracts will free up 1 mill. I can't see either of them being on the list next year. Grays contract will reduce, he's just not going to get big money any more. Merrett is exactly what we need and I like the fact he's mates with Fanta, helps with our pitch to him...

ill be honest i dont watch much ess, but what comes to mind when i hear his name is a soft front runner who wont get his hardball.
Happy to be wrong and obviously our drafting / trading guys have done a awesome job in the last few years, so happy to be proven wrong!

I have heard that Merrett is all but done already. Kinda confirms things spoken about in this thread. Will play it out for Ess and not sign a new deal and come across.

Kind a neat transition out of Rockliff.
Hope your right will be few people on the main board I would like to see proven very wrong.

Not a done deal - but he's very interested. Have blown Hawthorn/Carlton/Sydney/Collingwood out of the water.

I am a bit the same mate, but i dont watch enough of Essendon or him to be as good a judge as others.

If this is the case, he would be a great get.

Maybe what I heard was stronger than where it really sits, but time will tell. To be fair, as a Port fan, I am not overly fussed either way.
No disrespect to Rockliff but merret would bring something more to this club than Rocky and Port will have to keep chasing if they want to win flags as Boak, and Grey are on their way out.
