    Thats a long time for doing a finger. All the best Jmac.

    If only some people in the gameday threads would do this injury so they'd be out for a few weeks.

    is he a chance of being traded? has a bit of currency, and we dont really lack in his type of player?

    he looks like a surgeon in bunnings....LOST!

    something doesnt seem right with him this year.

    Whilst I'd be open to just about anything list management wise, reckon JMac is a real clubman. Can't see him going unless he wanted to

    Damn.

    Reckon the club will be taking every chance to rest senior players with the season done and dusted as far as we're concerned.

    This is great news, had JMac made it back he probably would have won us two games on his own, thus ruining our draft position.

    New one-year contract extension for Jmac. End of 2020. Would be 29 by then.

    Like him but he's the exact sort of player that might've had a little currency if 2018 reveals we're in a hole list wise.

    Can't be upset with a player extending their contract though.

    He would have got us a weak second round pick in a weak draft. If he got us a second next year, then I would be content.

    He's the type that would never leave though.

    Whipping boy for more years

    Noone would want this bloke in reference to the post above to trading him. Only we're stupid enough to play him

    If he had got us a pick around 30 this year I'd have done the deal and again, I don't mind him. But his player type, age vs the list profile would've made that move make sense.

    Yea, I'm neither here or there on this one. I like the guy, but I wouldn't miss him massively if he went. A pick 30 in this draft though, no thanks. A pick 30 next year, yes please, let me pack the bags for you Mr. MacMillian.

    I'm unconvinced you can write off one future draft and endorse the other at picks in the 20+ range without any players kicking a ball in anger at AFL level.

    Clubs including ours have emerged from supposedly average drafts with 3+ good prospects (eg 2007) and bummed out big time in supposedly superdrafts (eg 2001). No problem with our differing opinions btw but I'd emphatically take pick 30 this year which could well net a Petrucelle or Worpel for example.

    I like that the article has already been published under a different headline but they still haven't picked up the error that we finished 15th not 16th this year.

    A strange list management decision, absolutely no reason to do this.

    ps: I like J Mac and think he's a reasonable player.

    We need to reach minimum cap spend. Need a reason to renegotiate his contract so we give him an extra year and front-end it more.
