NORTH Melbourne is closing in on an extension for exciting tall Jacob Edwards, while St Kilda is poised to re-sign fellow NAB AFL Mid-Season Draftee Cooper Sharman.

Edwards, taken with pick No.1 in the June intake, joined the Roos on a six-month contract but talks will soon be finalised to see him locked away for the future.

Fair enough. On the face of it it's pretty dumb, but I genuinely believe even the shaving of their hair servers a purpose and as long as they aren't also bringing out the paddles, dildos, and blindfolds then I don't have any issue with it.
Zondor doesn't get down the club often these days

I don't mind it, the guy has only played one vfl game, I don't doubt he would win an extension if he has a good year in 2022.
This is true but it's quite common for first rounders to extend their initial deals before playing a game. No biggy of course, would've guessed at 1 more year but neither here nor there in the long run.

I don't mind our new management being cautious about comitting too much to untried players

me too, but don't let's forget the bonus $50,000 for finishing year 12. Something similar would have suited me back in the day
50k for 1 vfl game and a handful of training sessions.

It’s like a signing on bonus.
