Nicks is the crows wildcard, met with JHF a couple of times last year and much more personable than Noble or Kenny. He would have outlined a great vision of hard footy to JHF.
If say $1million per year for 6 years, 2 first rounders will do it, can't all for much more when there's nothing else to give!

Plus that mega trade offer (if true) would have made him feel some love.

That's a ridiculous contract for a kid in his second year. Essentially a license to cruise for the next half a decade and not put in any effort, and you're forced to play him regardless of his output due to his contract.

Reliably informed from a port supporter on the main board that Fabian Francis hit a certain milestone of games played for both Port magpies and the pear.....lol

The Port Adelaide Football Club is the Port Adelaide Football Club……. Fabian Francis played both in the SANFL and the AFL for the Port Adelaide Football Club ,119 games in total for the Club

I am guessing he was blind to the humor in that post

How many elite sports people go half arsed during a competitive game?

During? It happens but they're filtered out of the system pretty quickly for the most part. The worry is they drop off with preparation and all of those little things that elevate the greats.

Clarko will coach him at Port. You know it will happen.
Port are $15 million dollars in debt..

There is no way the AFL will sign off on, and pay for, the powa to get Clarkson in.. given the contract clarkson will be asking for will be in the millions.

Especially since the AFL will themselves want Clarkson at one of the newer clubs like the Suns, GWS or Tassie..

Why the administration of a sporting league has input into where players and coaches end up is completely beyond me. But hey, the AFL is certainly different to other competitions around the world in terms of how it likes to manufacture outcomes and you’re not wrong.

Also no Clarkson at Port please.

Unlikely. With Silver's ex hawthorn, Bello ex hawthorn, Scott Burns ex hawthorn he's more ikely to be at the crows.

Powaa will resign Kenny. They just got a big coke sponsorship

but if accepts norths offer he has to play for north. that in itself has to cost north an extra 200k a year
Look, I am not having a crack at the poster above making the comment about what his mate told him - it may / may not be true, who knows?

The real stumbling block is the optics of North not trying to keep him will be horrendous to their club - pick 1 with all the groundwork they put into him, the supporter base and the message it would send to the players if they just let him go without a fight

I would expect our offer to be dwarfed by North and Port will offload players to make sure they have the funds to go after him too imo so then what does the player want. Unless our club has really turned his head (ie he saw we were trying to sell the farm pickwise last year for him and he feels a massive offer from us backs up our position that we are super keen on bhim) and who knows, maybe we have?
