He should be captain next year
Demanding job being permanent Ruckman where personal positioning is vital, then organising midfield setups, big leap to then also be organising team structures and acting as onfield coach.
Doubt we will ever see an AFL Ruckman captain again. He's a good leader.

Interesting observation.
Bucks was talking about Pendles and how he organises structures, positioning etc.
They showed him some footage where he was doing it and it may have impacted his own positioning.
Brodes is constantly on the move and always has to get to the next stoppage.
It would potentially impact him/us - good point, well made.

A good argument for why Grundy shouldn't be captain but I feel he would add a lot to the leadership group.

Some hard facts there :$

A two OR three year deal? Come on Jay when you’re going for me me me time you could at least be firm with the speculation! It doesn’t even make logical sense because when you take a long term deal you generally sacrifice a little on the $’s for the security.

Fortunately for the powers that be I sincerely doubt there’s any truth to it.

He actually is in the secondary leadership group?

He might very well be captain assuming he’d want to be; he may just not want such a role.
That’s what will determine such things.

He’s such a boss!

Give the man 8 years. Lower rate, longer contract. Find the right figure and sign him up.

He’ll be playing well into his early to mid 30s. Ftou ftou. Seems to have one of those rugged built for footy bodies. 🧿🧿🧿🧿🧿

Because the guys at FF would never fluff up a story for click bait?

And no-one is saying that it couldn’t be true, just that there is nothing in the article to give it any credibility at all.
And as I clearly stated, those at FF are not going to burn their sources just for your satisfaction.
I perceive credibility because I understand how things work in a closed environment like the AFL.

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...
Plenty of former players/coaches/administrators work for FF.
Even current Presidents.
Even current players who may or may not be in the loop.

All the talk is about the Crows wanting Grundy.
What’s happening with Port? Are they in this or not?
Just don’t want them to sneak in the back like Sydney did with Buddy.

$5 million over seven years. That’s more than enough to buy a nice house in Northcote and revel in the hipster lifestyle.
Only a tick over $700k a year?

That'd be wonderful for us as a Club, but can't see it happening.

Ruckman traditionally age well, so the pies aren't taking a huge risk there, but the asking price is a little OTT.

What's the expected cap increase over the next 7 years? Maybe that could give the purported numbers some better perspective.
