I predict 1 of our key forwards to exit our list in the near future hence we should be shopping around for a suitable replacement.
You seem to have some good mail ML, care to elaborate? How about give us a clue, over 200cm or under, left footer or right, is his name Hipwood or McStay?

Given the commentary about McStay not being a priority for re-signing on other threads I'm assuming he means McStay.

The thing I miss about Rayner this year is the lack of midfield he plays. Whether it’s because of fitness or because he can’t break into it because our depth is a lot stronger and he’s still a dangerous forward, his disposal is often dangerous and he did a lot of good things when further up the ground.

Wasn’t there talk a little while back about 1 of our forwards possibly heading to Port or Adelaide in return for one of their quality players.

A cab driver who knows Ken Hinkley or something? (can’t remember the exact details)

Don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to piece together that Mighty Lions is almost certainly connected to Hipwood. Basic deduction and the search function paints that picture. Family vibe.

Who posted this info?

Sounds like a trouble making cabbie to me

Hipwood would be a monumental loss. Really hope he's not looking to move elsewhere, particularly as the team is just coming good.
The only way I could see Hippy (OOC 2020) or any one of our elite young players moving is if some club made him a massive Tom Boyd/Lance Franklin $$$ and length of contract type offer, which I would see as unlikely but within the realms of possibility. eg. 6-7 years 8-9 million dollar contract heavily front loaded.

I could not see our club matching that sort of offer when the likes of McCluggage, Andrews, Neale, Cameron, Gardiner and Berry would be entitled to ask why they are not being given a similar deal.

I guess it could happen that someone offers him a godfather contract. Would be such a big blow though as we're seemingly entering our window. Very hard to replace a player like Hippy. Gotten so used to our young guns re-signing early forgot what it was like to have to worry about them being poached. Doesn't feel good.

Yeah it all seems so good atm and the go home stuff has passed but there will still be traumatic trade stuff to deal with in one or two of our guns leaving in the next 2 or 3 years

Hey TheBrownDog, you are definately far from a Sherlock Holmers nor a Mr Watson for that matter. I can confirm I do not have a connection with any of the players, however I can also confirm I do have a club connection but that's my business and not anyone else's including yours.

No doubt another big signing or 2 to slot in there somewhere.
Going to hard to get a gig.
Got a gut feeling Adams will retire early n McStay n Rayner will be elsewhere.

That's exactly what you would expect someone connected to Hipwood would say if they've just been outed.

Browndog theory confirmed.

Could possibly get Schache back cheap if he’s matured and wanted an AFL career that he’d move again particularly if it’s the difference between playing AFL footy or not.

As much chance of Schache coming back to us as Leppa being the coach after Chris Fagan.
