As usual.With free agency approaching, star Bomber Zach Merrett needs to balance the pros and conswww.afl.com.au
A very good analysis of Zach, by Callum Twomey.
He’s also a decent shout to be the highest paid player in the AFL next year by way of a front loaded contract.He’d be silly to leave now, green shoots left right and centre. Could be massive egg on face if he walks out.
Terrible deals. We've seen both Collingwood and GWS losing players they cant afford to lose already and fall out of premiership contention in the space of 12 months. If Kelly takes up the option at GWS theyd have Cogs, Kelly, Whitfield and Greene, 4 players taking up at least 30% of the teams salary cap. Collingwood with Grundy, Moore, Adams and De Goey would be similiar.I hope we don't sign him to a ridiculous Coniglio and Grundy-like contract.
No player is worth that unless you're Dusty. 5 years front-ended at 800K should be enough. 850K at most.
We have salary cap space, but I'd prefer to build a team that wants to stay together.
