    Basil in the box, Belly on the boundary.

    Footy knowledge in the box = 2%, footy knowledge on the boundary = 100%.

    Bloody third rate garlic muncher.

    Love how now that we're winning, nobody is talking about Fyfe leaving us. Only happens when we lose :rolleyes:

    If they stay on the form line are on now the last thing they should be thinking about is signing a new marquee player on a multi million dollar deal..

    And we will be delisting about 7-9 mid to top priced players.
    I see your 1.7 and match it. Given he is restricted there is no way that Fremantle does not match whatever people put on the table.

    At what price does Fyfe become too expensive for the club? Either $ or % of salary cap. Interesting that Hasleby said he wouldn't match $1.5 million a year but would match $1.2 million.

    Ther is more money for salaries from next year as a consequence of the new tv deals. So the old 1 million/year golden ceiling has shifted upwards - but we don't know by how much.

    But if Fyfe is going to re-sign with the club, it would be foolish to hoover up as much money as possible if he was serious about a flag. That's less money to retain other players or get trades in to the club.

    I think wa clubs are getting flight concessions / travel fees exempt from the cap so there's extra money there too, it all depends how the contract is loaded too, nothing is flat these days and I'm pretty sure you can bank 5% from last year's cap if unspent too - I suspect we'll be in that category with the delistings

    Pre-season Draft. Take the RFA compo or he walks to the PSD. Bigfooty poster standard negotiation strategy.

    Wait, you mean on top of the disadvantage of constant travel we also had the added disadvantage of having to include the costs under our cap?

    That's ludicrous, surely even the AFL couldn't blatantly tilt the playing field like that?

    That one doesn't work now unfortunately, he has to nominate for the national draft and their first pick is with someone else. :)

    Depends on our salary cap structure really. We don't have to match the exact structure of the deal, only the total dollar and term as far as I know. If we have a fair chunk in the cap in 2018 (which we may well do given the senior players who have and will come off the list) then we can front load a shit load of it and keep rolling the space forward.

    As the salary cap data isn't public everyone is really just spit-balling when they talk about dollar amounts.

    I have a really bad feeling about Hawthorn poaching Fyfe. They don't have a first round draft pick and would be eager to bounce back. They don't need draft picks for Free agency just money.

    With Hodge, Gibson, Birchall & Burgoyne all probable to retire at the end of the year all on at least $500k each per year. That's at least $2m a year free.

    And there is talk about Rosich becoming CEO at Hawthorn. I have a bad feeling we will get screwed :(

    why would Fyfe leave for a team who are essentially a year behind us on the rebuild but with alot less draft picks.

    If we are talking about success prospects I dont' think the Hawks would be a huge draw.

    there is no limit. If another club is willing to pay we are willing to match it.

    who would value Fyfe more than us, when we see him every day? i'd give him 10 years at 1.2 mill a pop. Its working well with Buddy.

    The other thing is that another club essentially has to offer more than what we will have available to entice him to move. If not then it is simply better for him to stay (financially speaking).

    The big effect of other club's interest is to put as much pressure on us and our salary cap. The squeeze will be felt by the likes of Weller, Crozier, Tucker etc in a season or two.
