I am sure Richmond, like 16 other clubs, are interested in the Bont.

However there is no chance a club like Richmond - which is very well run even though their supporters are ferabogans - would promise the captaincy to a player who doesn't even play for them yet.
Coming from the club whose supporters set a Richmond players house on fire during the week of grand final. Bit rich mein liebchen

My work colleague is family friends with the Bontempelli's and I was told Richmond have courted him significantly the past 3 months and are looking secure him for 2022. Richmond aren't the only ones however, Richmond is the most appealing option for Bont. Who will most likely stay with the Dogs but don't rule out a headache this year for the dogs.

One year under Cotchin and he takes over as new captain in 2023 is part of the discussions. Would make sense why the Tigers strengthened their draft hand for 2021 by swapping picks with Geelong. Richmond have 2x 1st rounders, 2x second rounders and 2x third rounders and future picks that they can offload to the Bulldogs to get the deal done if the Dogs insist on going that direction.

I was told think of this as what the Tigers did with Prestia and Lynch. They identified a gun player, sold the vision to him, and then paid what they had to pay to get the deal done.

Its on the rumours board for a reason, so don't shoot me please, just throwing it out there, I dont think this is a secret anyway, but from who I heard this, it really stood out to me.
Rumour has it you stole the souva from the Turks. Itโ€™s a kebab.

Greeks will tell you all their contributions to society (Democracy, Philosophy, Mathematics, Literature, cuisine etc)

Turks will tell you every race and land theyve conquered.

Thats the difference, one race contributes and one race decimates. Thats why they have hated each other for 800 years since the Turks moved from eastern Asia into the Mediterranean

Would automatically follow in the footsteps of two other ex mutts to play in flags for us, namely, Robert McGhie and David Thorpe. Ian Stewart, Stephen Rae, Mick Malthouse other players to profit by playing in flag teams for us after crossing from going nowhere Docklands clubs.

It is only fair too as we were robbed of Jacky Higgins wanting to leave to play for the club he supported as a kid. So it would be nice to get one back from one of those Docklands teams.

Rear end him on 900 large average for a 6 year deal. Dogs match our offer, give them 3 first rounders, and sweeten it with a Naish or a Chol. Everyone is deleriously happy, maybe bar the 3 first round picks who miss out on starting their careers at world sport HQ, The Swinburne. Never mind, if they work really hard and go well, they can come to us later. ๐Ÿ˜
Well at least the Bont has too much footy nous not to kick against the wind after winning the toss in an Adelaide final. Definite upgrade.

One year under Pendlebury and he takes over as new captain in 2023 is part of the discussions. Would make sense why the Pies gave Treloar away for peanuts to get some goodwill with the Dogs.
We have entered the twilight zone.

Been in Papleys ear. Will be either us or the blues. Swans will get a first which they will begrudgingly accept.
How would Papley fit into our system? A goal kicking small forward would be great but I see much stronger needs. A KPD or a quality mid
