    He will get ridiculous offers from other clubs and rightly so. If he stays, it wont be purely for the money. He could get more elsewhere. Lifestyle, close(r) to family, loyalty, unfinished business etc. will all play a factor.

    These are the good players at or under Fyfe's age at Hawthorn and JOM has serious ?? over how long he is going to be playing for. They also have no decent picks at the draft.
    Tom Mitchell (24)
    JOM* (23)
    Gunston (26)
    Shiels (26)

    So Fyfe goes to Hawthorn. Why? Chance of premiership success during his remaining years, close to 0 (and that's not to bag Hawthorn - they won 4, but now they are bottoming out to do it all again).

    Good players (or destined to be) Fyfe's age or under at Freo:
    Logue
    Billy
    Walters
    Bennell**
    Weller
    Crozier
    Tucker
    Blakely
    Hamling
    McCarthy
    Balic
    APearce
    Langdon
    Neale

    + a top 10 pick (most likely)
    + Captaincy
    top4 club for $
    Family is here

    Taking emotion out of it and looking at the basics and I just don't see it. Carlton maybe, but not Hawthorn.

    The best club for him is freo. The 2nd best is not a Victorian club.

    Fyfe and Sloane would be a perfect duo but I just can't see Fyfe leaving.

    Adelaide is better without Dangerfield for the same reason we are better without Pav. The focal point has changed and so that has given the Adelaide midfield more unpredictability going into the forward line.

    Our forward line is better without Pav as we now look at best option rather than "OH MY GOD ITS PAV, KICK IT TO HIM!"

    If Sloane and Dangerfield weren't able to bring a premiership, that doesn't guarantee that Fyfe will.

    Whichever team he stays with / goes to will be better WITH Fyfe than without but getting Fyfe won't guarantee anyone a flag.

    If a club wants to give him $2,000,000 per year good luck to them. You need 25-28 good players to win a flag. I would guess that he is smart enough to realise this and won't go purely for dollars.

    Good luck being able to do that.

    Spot on. I really can't see why people are still talking about it. It's not a question of if he re-signs anymore it's just a matter of when and what the terms are

    As for people suggesting hawthorn LOL
