    They are building it up so we look stupid once again when we fail to retain a gun player

    Gov would replace most of Weagles forward line for away games as a minimum. ;)

    Name me your forward 6 and I'll tell you who.

    If you go to the effort of trading him in on big coin you will be playing him, there is no doubt about it.

    They've already got guns like Josh Hill and Cripps. No room for Shooter.

    In fairness, the AFC article started with
    "Adelaide is confident it can retain promising forward Mitch McGovern next season, according to Tom Lynch"

    I rate Cripps but Josh Hill? I forgot about him, I think maybe they could share the games as Hill is that good.

    Is that because we will get our ass handed to us and the CA hierarchy will be overthrown ??

    I see a bit of jack darling in Gov, and given the way darling has lost his way a little in recent years, Gov probably has a higher ceiling

    And that makes a super player.

    He's definitely got better hands

    Hasn't shown it completely yet

    Wait to you see Jake Waterman , he's a very similar type to Darling as well

    Agree re the Gov ceiling

    No point worrying now, there's plenty of time to sign a new contract. He'd be dumb to sign one now anyway, no CBA announced yet and keep the bidding war going.

    Start to panic if there's no news by round 16 I think.

    Very important player to keep, could be uber special with a bit more experience. If it doesn't go our way it's got gunston mk 2 written all over it. Lose him for little, continues on his path and dominates the comp when he matures. Already kicking upwards of 40 goals in his first full year!

    There is no way we can accept a 2nd rounder for Gov like we did for Gunston especially if he develops further . We need at least a first rounder as starting point if it gets to that

    Considering we wouldn't trade him for Gibbs but we were happy to give up 1 first rounder you'd think that's the absolute bare minimum depending on WC ladder position ( or Freo)

    Not sure about that. Was Betts dumb for signing in the off season, a year out?

    We might not know the finer points of the CBA but we'll be working to a rough outline and it will be the scrubs who suffer if we get it wrong, not the quality
