Both signed for unders aswell. Carrying Harmes for 2 years on 300k is no where near as dangerous as carrying anyone for 1 million a season.
Viney didnt sign for unders at all . We pretty much matched Geelong 's offer. Mahoney panicked.

Trac doesn't have the injuries Jack does. Trac has far more evidence that he's good than Harmes does.

Not saying 7 years isn't a risk. It's just less of a risk than those two were.

I remember it was reported Geelong offered him 4 years for 800k we gave him 5 years for 650k
Maybe not unders but that's probably par plus we probably were able to front load some of that aswell.

I won't give a flying fu** if we snag a flag in the next couple but paying anyone a million into their 30s guaranteed is a fair punt

Front loaded and back loaded it's all the same, if we are having a sustained period of success while Trac is his 30s it will be fine. This is also taking into consideration that the cap won't rise in 2022 when the current deal ends.

It will only hurt us if we are struggling.

Not really though. If we paid Viney an extra 400k in his first year then he's making 100k less every year, which maybe we did to meet the salary cap.

Plus there's literally no articles on the internet with a value, think that was a certain poster who makes up Intel to feel special

I spent 15 minutes googling it and there's no reference to a $ value. That's more than I did in high school
Contracts always seem to disappear like that, you see numbers when they first come out and then exact figures vanish.

Wish there was a contract tracking site like they have ifor American Sports. Would make life easier for fans to trash GMs and footy bosses for sh*t deals. ๐Ÿ‘

Yeah the AFL players are too soft to have their values spoken about. Might get criticized
