This is basically the best player in the game we're talking about.

If, emphasis on IF, he were to leave. I highly doubt it would be for the cash. It would purely be an insatiable desire to return home to Adelaide.

Sustained success requires sacrifice, see Geelong era, Hawks era etc. I still have the utmost confidence he'll remain.

Yeah, totally agree with that. I believe he would stay with the Pies on less money if he really is genuinely happy here. Would only go to be with family etc.

He wants a 6-7 year deal, pretty sure Pies will be more than happy to accomodate that when the time comes for both Grundy(his management) and Pies sit down to nut this out, $ won’t be an issue.

The high volume and low quality of footy journalism is increasingly notable. Especially around contract renewals for big-name players, it resembles nothing so much as a creature which produces a lot of **** and which loves nothing more than feeding of its own faeces.

Maybe the biggest indictment of the media industry is that the fluff produced by the clubs seems relatively enlightening in comparison.

Love the way we try and ignore the reality by clutching at the smallest straws.
FoxFooty have more ex player/coaches on their payroll than any other media.
They have the confidence of current players/coaches/administrators. But they won’t break that confidence by putting their name to an article that could possibly reveal the sources.
What a bizarre statement? Can you enlighten us as to who these former personalities were in regards to Kirby’s post? Given you know they aren’t breaking confidence obviously...

It's a misnomer to suggest that ex-players are still part of the inner circle of a club. The guys on the Fox Footy podcast itself said it this week when discussing Ben Dixon's comments about Clarko.

Fox Footy doesn't hold any more weight as a media outlet than any other outlet that covers footy. The line that Grundy has put talks "on hold" is a fair bit of mayo on the reality that Grundy is in no rush to sign a new deal. The Hun, for instance, reported that Ned Guy and Robbie D'Orazio have started preliminary talks.

That why I don't take any report Seriously unless it come from Grundy or his Manager's Mouth

I'd give him a 6 year deal in a heartbeat.

This bloke is a dead set superstar. I dont want draft picks for him, draft picks are always a risk, regardless of how early they are.

I want to see him play his 300th game in a Collingwood jumper.
