Can’t see any club taking him
Cox is getting paid $500kWe are probably just glad to get his 500k a year contract off the books lol, even if he goes for nothing that's a good outcome.
If we can get some picks that other clubs don't expect to use and convert it into points that's even better.
If we can land Lapinski for Cox that would be the dream scenario.
Not Stef Martin strong by any means but his height and reach at least prevents the opposition from having the upper hand.Is he strong enough to be the punch bag type?
No doubt we’ll get a ruck assuming Martin retires. Even if he doesn’t.Not Stef Martin strong by any means but his height and reach at least prevents the opposition from having the upper hand.
I know the Dogs won 2 finals without Martin but seeing Lycett, Draper, Ceglar dominate them in the end of the H&A season really showed the Dogs need a ruck to at least negate. If Martin can't go on in 2022 Cox on 150k would be that player.
You can probably rotate Cox and Martin around and get 22 games out of them combined throughout the H&A season.No doubt we’ll get a ruck assuming Martin retires. Even if he doesn’t.
Respectfully, most of this is wishful thinking. Reality is, if any club even has a mild interest in Cox, they're simply waiting for him to be delisted...You can probably rotate Cox and Martin around and get 22 games out of them combined throughout the H&A season.
The impact Cox has in ensuring your midfield doesn't get decimated without a competent ruck > Lipinski or any other player you can get for virtually nothing at $150k.
I actually still think Cox has more good games in him as a KPF, and if we were more competitive, I think he still would've been our starting KPF/ruck over the younger Darcy Cameron.
I know that with Cox you won't be at a ruck disadvantage at centre bounces, and while Lynch has shown good signs, we don't have enough of a sample size to be absolutely confident.
Lynch is the long term play if you want him, and we'd probably do that deal and swap with Lapinski.
But Cox as a basement price acquisition at virtually no cost, is highly synergetic with your playing list and a no brainer imo
Cox’s centre bounce tap work is actually top notch. The dogs mids receiving taps from him would actually be a legit terrifying prospect.Reckon Cox will be with us and played as the main ruck.
Linked to him last year and Stef Martin can't be relied upon and its pretty unlikely Stef goes again anyway.
Meanwhile English isn't a main ruck and is needed forward with Bruce out.
I'd probably get another ruck as well in addition to Cox.
I've watched a fair bit of his tap work and its pretty underrated.Cox’s centre bounce tap work is actually top notch. The dogs mids receiving taps from him would actually be a legit terrifying prospect.
I hope we keep him even if he hardly plays, kind of like a back-up player/ruck coach. We'll likely lose Stephen King to Gold Coast and with the soft cap being pretty tight I'd be surprised if more teams don't use one spot on their rookie list as a playing coach type role. I suspect if the fourth year rookie rule comes in Tom Campbell might get a similar gig for you guys.Is Stefan Martin a chance for next year or final game this weekend?
