So is the theory that Dodoro was waiting on list sizes/salary cap before locking them in and Richardson decided to just give them a bit extra regardless instead of waiting any longer?
No in theory Doddoro didn’t want to pay the money they felt they were worth, Richardson thought they were worth the money. As I’ve previously mentioned he’s been trying to lowball those boys all year, it’s not like they’ve been asking for ridiculous amounts of money. Richardson was probably scared of other clubs sniffing around and got the deals done.

And you’ve heard the truth from a source have you?
The only way you could've known what happened for sure is if you were present at the actual conversations and decisions within the club as they happened, a fly on the wall so to speak. If that's not the case then what you've posted is just an interesting titbit on a footy forum that may or may not be true.

Yes because a clubs footy GM getting involved to make sure some guys contracts get done is that most outlandish thing ever posted on here. Will be last time I post creditable information from inside the club on here for a while 😂

Inside info can be interesting, but without verification it's just rumours. Doesn't mean it's not fun to hear stuff that might or might not be true though. ;)

Do you want me to give you the persons number, you can ask him then say congrats on a really good season. Everything’s a rumour with confirmation, but I don’t just post stuff for the sake of it.

Not every player is over aggressive. If you turn up and play your role every week, does it matter?
He had a good year and is an outside player. You just hope if the time ever comes we need him to put his head over the footy in a final he'll do it. Given he just renewed his own contract, let's hope he gets that chance.

I know what you mean but I can’t think of many times this year where he didn’t put his head over the ball when he needed to. He’s improving in that area all the time.

I’d love you to show us some times he didn’t put his head over the ball this year. And he’s hardly timid in the air, has great hands overhead.
