Funny you say that but with a list of 45 or so shouldn’t there be each year 15 to 20 players up for contract anyway?
With at least 8-10 changes per year (this year might be the exception), wouldn't it make more sense to stagger? Especially since we have at least 7 players on longer terms? Pendles, Treloar, Wells, Sidebottom, Howe, Wells, Mayne just at the top of my head.
Then there would be a 2 0r 3 on 1 year contracts.

You’re right ofcourse but the numbers say usually there’s s nice group that need that year to renew.
So we have angst.

What's with all these 2 year extensions? 2020/21 is going to be very stressful again.

Glad he has re-signed anyway, is that all now?

I think it's the established better quality players who generally get signed to longer so maybe it says something about the evenness and relative youth of our core group that we're signing these bridging contracts for the emerging talent and short term stop gap contracts for the depth guys.

Yes I can see that but it concerns me that within the group we have players like Grundy, JDG, Moore (if stays fit and lives up to potential), Stepho, Sier, Maynard and maybe a couple of others due around that time. Anyway, I suppose they know better than me what they are doing. I hope!

Big fan of Brody but he was very slow to get going tonight, came good but was costly early on. A big improvement in the latter stages though on last weeks effort.

Thought he had a bad one last week, and actually was worried for him going forward.
We’ve had VFL players play a great season out two before, then disappear quickly.
But his game tonight was very good. First 22 game.
