Browne sounded confident though, saying Petracca wants to stay has put his terms to the club in recent days. Possibly a 7 year deal locking him away until 2029.
Takes him well past 30, but think he has the talent to justify a contract like this, plus I think he will be able to play half forward and be solid in his twilight.

Petracca saying I want to be at Melbourne for the rest of the decade is a great show of confidence in the club.

TBH not sure I'm comfortable with 7 years, you just never know what will happen.

Massive show of faith by both parties which I do like (just for the love of god do not think about extending Goodwin for 7 years).
Petracca is one of the leagues best players. Is only 25 and has publicly stated that he loves this club. More than happy for a monster contract, regardless of what the future may hold.

If Goody wins us a flag I say give him 20 👍

I like the deal but I know what you mean. Meltdown when Harmes signs a 5 year deal even though it's probably for stuff all. Yet apparently there's nothing that could go wrong paying a 32 year old close to a million.

I just feel people forget about the Buddy deal and let the romance and emotions get in the way.

I'm not saying it's a bad deal. I love Petracca. I just think 7 years is a risk.
I much rather 7 for Trac than 5 for Viney and Harmes.
