    So guy said they expect an offer over the offseason. Didn’t they get an offer around when Tex re-signed?

    Port don't seem to have trouble attracting players...with issues. We finished 2nd on the ladder. Port finished 7th. These superstars who forego everything to play for Port...who are they again?

    At least we don't need to worry about Ned the Flog Guy sending Sloane elsewhere.. don't think Pies would get him so hopefully this helps in keeping him now.

    Rory Sloane would not leave the Crows unless we did something unforgivable.
    Enough shadow jumping lol

    No thanks. Truly overrated. Rockliff isn’t in the equation however.

    Haven’t begun negotiations on Sloane
    Didn’t receive an offer from crows mid year on Sloane
    Didn’t meet Melbourne
    Just waiting on CBA
    Managers overseas

    Not sure how much weight I’m putting on Guy Smileys words

    I’m betting even if he did say he’d look at going home next year, we’d back ourselves in to change his mind. Also not want to have to deal with the fall out after lever and Cameron already.

    Mike Smith doesn't rate the AFC...ever. lol.

    And if you care to re-read my post you'll notice Rocky was exempted from the overrated.

    Code for 'we expect a new offer with half the Lever money now going to Sloane'.

    Maybe this whole thing is all some kind of mix-up? Like Melbourne put a $900k x 4 year offer to Ned Guy for Rory Sloane, but Guy got confused and thought it was for Lever, so he passes that on to Lever, Lever publicly accepts said offer and now everybody is too embarrassed to admit they screwed it up so they're all just going with it?

    $900k x 4 makes a hell of a lot more sense for Sloane than it does for Lever.

    Reckon the club knows sloane will probably leave as a free agent but are willing to hope he helps us win a flag next year and just take the compo pick, if they still exist in 12 months.

    Tex probably redid his deal to accomodate keeping Lever and Gov. Now he's extra pissed at Lever

    Sloane was prepared to do the same but his manager had a better insight as to whether that was necessary or not didn't he...

    Hey I see what you did there. In a round about way you implied that I'm an unadulterated bandwagoner. That cuts.

    It wont matter if Sloane goes, he's given us service and I think he will want the club he goes to to give us fair compensation
    And we will continue to pick footballers that other recruiting staff overlook and develop them into team footballers
    We wont bottom out and its actually a compliment to us that other teams look to grab players we develop just as its a compliment to Alistair Clarkson that so many of his assistant coaches have become head coaches.
    At least we are not a 4th rate Melbourne club asking for handout all the time from the AFL, unable to develop players and a team and just waiting for Victorian footballers to get " homesick and missing family" so they can get a ready made player because they are too busy taking holidays in the snow and having lunches in Toorak or drinks with the old boys club

    We keep saying that about nearly everyone who leaves, including Danger, but it doesn't ever happen. For a start the player has basically no say in it unless they don't specify a club, which almost always never happens.
