Honestly I think he goes I love the kid but I've been saying all year we will lose someone due to cap restraints and he is the last one left unsigned.

I’d rather keep Keath than go for this guy. Didn’t he get dropped again this year?

It's an interesting one. I love Francis and think he's in the top 5 talents on the list, and the best talent under 23, but he does have a few issues. II hope he stays and settles in defence next year but I feel he needs to learn how to play on those medium type forwards ala Gleeson, he should be the one to take Gary Rohan or Josh Caddy types.

Looks like must have front loaded the s**t out of some key contracts, for me at a guess namely Heppell (2020) Zaharakis (2021), Daniher (2020), Hurley (2022) and Hooker (2021). Hard to see how the list stayed together otherwise, I'd say only Heppell will command the same salary per year out of those 5 when each contract goes up for renewal, which means these trade ins and signings can happen with perhaps more paid in say 2022 once Hooker and Zaharakis get less. Good management

Francis is all but gone, if he was gonna stay, he'd be signed up by now , off to a SA club, my guess is the Crows will grab him as they'll need to rebuild there list

i still think Francis is better off going back to SA, if he was " staying " the deal would of been done by now like the others have been done.
You have no idea.

He put off signing until our season is over and that isn't until probably tonight.

You also have no idea of his personal circumstances so are in no position to me making definitive statements either way.
