This one is going to be very interesting to watch.
Pies will obviously be keen for him to stay but if they have a poor year and the offers come for Darcy as expected, are they really saying no to a band one compensation pick?
A top 4 pick will do very nicely by the Pies as they continue through their rebuild. 2 of them could accelerate that rebuild and produce something pretty special.
Absolutely I’m saying No.
Darcy isn’t exactly old. He’ll have only just turned 26 at the start of next season.
What’s the point of turfing out an elite player, who could realistically (barring injuries) still playing at an elite level in his early 30’s and be there for the next tilt in 3-5 years.
Particularly when the player you bring in could turn out to be a complete and utter bust.
