This is the latest we know... from Lee Gaskin...

"The Crows have yet to offer 220-game stalwart Mackay, 31, a contract for next year."

We are just waiting for the exodus of players in the trade period so we know how much coin we can offer him.

The value he adds in not clogging up the weights room is worth a few $100kay alone.

Or, we've told him he's not getting a contract (pretty, please), and he and his manager are weighing up his options. Does he retire, or leave himself to be delisted? He's a free agent, so maybe hoping for some interest from elsewhere (unlikely). Anyway, I'm just hoping for this scenario.

He should have been told the same day as Douggie that he was not required.

Maybe the decision depends on who comes and goes during the trade period. But I’m sure most on here feel it shouldn’t come to that.
Very much so. If we’re looking at pick 105 or Mackay, the little spud will get another year on, I hope, very little. I think we’ll genuinely be needing to do a couple of 1 out, 2 usable picks in type trades to avoid extending Mackay. We’re not strong enough to not give a 12 year ‘loyal servant’ a 1 year gift in favour of pick 100+ in the draft.

So many players will leave we'll need to keep on a senior experienced head to take the club through this tough period.

You know what happens from here

If we delist everyone this year then we will have to trade out some good players next year to comply with AFL rules. One year extensions for a few back up players makes sense (like Andy Otten last year). Our biggest problem is that we can’t resist playing these guys if we get a few injuries.

I have no problem with us playing Wilson and Mackay in the Twos.

You'd think so - it's been his best season. He was however back to his normal standard of turnovers against the witches hats on weekend and in the Port game, but that appears to be what the coaches like, so I'm assuming he's safe.
Would love to see a compilation of his contests and physical body'work' over the last 5 or so seasons. My bet is he is nullified and dispossessed in 99% of those occasions.

Appalling list management. Why would you sign a 30+ year old fringe player prior to a appointing a new senior coach and possibly senior assistant? Sheer stupidity.
I can only assume it's a 1 year deal on min wage.

I'm sure there will be a raft of teams lining up with multi year deals for him given his elite run and carry. A direct replacement for Brad Hill at Freo or Geelong can do with more midfield speed.🙄

Actually, what about Nobes gets him up to Brisbane...🤔

No worse than pushing out Betts, Greenwood and particularly Alex Keath - unfortunately very confident MacKay will be on the list next year, which is okay provided he is in behind every 25 and under player on the list for a game in the 1’s
