    People,

    Just starting to get worried we might lose Rory next year. Heard reports that he was going to sign front ended contract that did not eventuate. Then comments about Belinda wanting to go home.

    We cannot afford for Rory to go home. Whilst Tex is a the captain, a matchwinner and heart of the club, Rory is the soul and the blue collar player who sets the tone for much of the team.

    The loss of Rory would rip the guts out of our side - players with his character, commitment and inspirational nature cannot be replaced.

    Lets hope we can tie up this one over summer before the season begins. I don't think I could take it to have another season impacted by the possible loss of a favourite son.

    The next 3-5 months will be a great challenge for Reid and co - with not only Rory coming out of contract but Matt and others exiting deals.

    If he does leave, he has given incredible service to this club and needs to be held in the highest esteem whenever we play against his side in the future.

    If he decides to leave a number 1-3 pick must be an essential part of the deal so that we can get one of the SA boys - Rozee , Rankin or Luckosis - cannot spell his name properly. This might be his legacy if he goes. A 10- 12 year player for the AFC.

    Hell will freeze over before Rory leaves. He's not a priority for list management this year.

    Can't this wait until after the finals? We've got a whole summer to procrastinate away.

    Lol at thinking we could get a top 3 pick for Sloane. We should get one as thats what he is worth, but our list management couldnt get one. Heck, we couldnt get one for the best player in the AFL.

    Why waste time talking about this? You can spend an entire year reading 7000 pages of leaving/staying debate but in the end it won't change anything, only waste your time.

    TAFKATMS alluded to this a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it's not true

    Rory will be a free agent and even if are able to trade he will be 29 entering the 2019 season (his first for a potential new team) hard to see how we are going to get as high a return as that

    According to Carlton we should get at least two first round draft picks

    Don't want to think about this now, but to be honest if anyone has earnt the right, is Rory.

    Wouldn't begrudge him.

    First round pick has no meaning, just a range between 1-18
