This thread isn’t about Cripps, so there’s no use labouring the point. You can make the exact same post in the corresponding Patrick Cripps thread.

Maybe you’re insecure, but if you’re alluding to Mike Fitzpatrick, B-grader Tyson Stenglein (who was playing at another interstate club), and referring to the 1920’s we can truly see how rarely star players born in WA return.

It’s a genuine aberration.
The point is the home option hasnt featured largely in WA footy for 100 years, got it.
Insecure, try realistic.

Underpaid probably, but its the wishful thinking by a supporter of another club. Not going anywhere soon.

From the very the very tenuous subject material available (on Page 1) you managed to incorporate Cripps’ name, and then doubled down and honed in any remote WA example you could think of.

Face it - you’re a bit insecure.

I can’t really see any club offering him the type of money that would blow Richmond’s offer out of the water so it’s hard to imagine him leaving
Wonder what Jayden Short and Noah Balta’s contract status’ are?

Surely both due for a big pay rise, and Richmond are comfortable with losing players in their bottom 5-8.

I could see someone like Baker being open to leaving if they get the right contract offer.

Tenuous indeed. There is a long history that supports my view as demonstrated by my early post on Bakes.

Balta is the player a club should be offering silly overs for. Players like Short and Baker imo, as good as they are will only get those max $600k type offers (for Short, less for Baker) because they aren’t going to transform a side. Richmond won’t have to pay them anywhere near that for them to want to stay imo.

Agreed.

Balta is already built like a brick shithouse and beating some of the best forwards in the league.

Odds on to win multiple AA’s and will end up getting some ridiculous offers in the coming years.

Think Bolton is more of a flight risk than anyone else.

Word is balta isn't leaving due various reasons and his family/friends ties to tigerland. I assume maric. Soldo. Colina (new tigers ruckman) Good news cause he's be number1 on the retain list for mine

Balta OOC is huge - he’d be the perfect Liam Jones replacement.

nah stocker is contracted wont be making a thread for him this early - maybe later in the year if he is struggling to get games and has reason to break the contract and request out

Isn't stocks OOC the same as all these Richmond young champions you are vulturing over?

Would be interesting give strongly link to Tigerland predraft.

I'm more worried about Bolton leaving tbh.

Baker is a very good player, but as an undersized HBF he's probably not the type of player that would attract a big money enticing offer that we couldn't at least compete with. He's probably also one of the ones we'd like to keep, so I don't think we'd want him to slip out like we have with guys like Ellis for more money.

Bolton is fairly under size too
