Tom Browne now running the story on Talking Footy that Grundy holding off contract negotiations... with Crows likely to offer him 1mill+ a season.

The longer he remains unsigned the speculation on this is going to get Lynch like.
He does not come out of Contract to next season so I am not shocked at all.

Though Tom has been know to Guess

I am 99.9% sure it might be his Manager trying to get big as contract he can possibly get out of Collingwood
Probably. It's only May. I can't see him leaving, but because he is the best ruckman in the comp, his manager obviously is like... just put off talks for a bit, and your price will raise..

So this hasn't aged well has it.
Tommy Browne struggles for info. He had Brodie definitively staying with us a few weeks back, now he's revised it... he also had Darce and Langdon to the Swans last year as pretty much done deals...

The source who told me this was a very close personal connection to Brodes, who was pretty adamant. We'll see how it plays out I guess.

Not if he goes end of next year. He's a free agent next year.
Restricted so we could match and force a trade. Personally, doubt he'd have any interest going anywhere else or that he'd push the boundaries on potential salary. He'll stay and for significantly under what he could earn elsewhere.

Salary cap applies to EVERY club.
Someone offers him mega dollars they have to cut their own cream.

He’ll stay until he retires because he loves being here.
He’ll be paid very very very well.

Click bait is all. A journalist will say one day he’ll stay the next he’ll leave etc etc then which way it goes he’ll pull that article out claiming he knew. Pffft. They know nothing.
