It's been both fun and maddening reading some of the Ollie Wines stuff on here the last 14 months.

At the October meeting last year FishingRick04 organised with Richo at the club for Big Footy Port board posters, and KT turned up, KT made it clear that it was bullshit that Ollie wanted to leave.

Someone close to him was making inquiries, not on Ollie's behalf, but on his own's. KT asked that we all keep this quiet and it's only now that he has re-signed long term that I have mentioned it.

Ollie will be at Port for 14 seasons if he gets thru to the end of 2026. That means he will be pushing 280-300 games if he stays injury free and we play lots of finals.

Hmmmmm.....
Long term contracts - Lobbe, Hammer, et al.
Not sure we have learnt that much over the journey?

This is a great news we are gonna need vets around once the Boaks Grays etc. retire and the younger players are still developing. He will be pivotal to any future premiership push. Massive turn around since the 2019 trade period. Would expect him to take the captaincy from Jonas in a couple of years.

Brilliant news. We can finally put the ridiculous annual media speculation that he's going to Carlton or Essendon to bed for 6 seasons.
lol

"I know he's under contract but I'm not convinced he's going to be at Port Adelaide next year unless he comes out and strongly denied this rumour I just made up" - Damian Barrett in the 2021 offseason probably

Brilliant news. We can finally put the ridiculous annual media speculation that he's going to Carlton or Essendon to bed for 6 seasons.

His second half of 2020 was AA quality and he seems to be really enjoying his footy.
Dunno! Maybe next year we offer him, plus a future 5th-rounder to Dodo for 4 first-rounders, Zach Merrett, Parish & Francis.

Sounds fair, he is a 6-yr contracted player after all!

A great move to sure up our midfield ppst Rocky, Gray and Boak.

Also ends the speculation so we can focus on him becoming a true leader.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him captian in 2021. I don't think we should yet but it may have been the plan all along to go one for one instead of co captains.
