I guess he’ll get a billion dollar offer.
Id back in a team of 11 Gawns and 11 Grundys to make top 4Theoretically, his tenure should be linked to Hayes'. They are in competition to be the #2 ruckman on the list over the next few years, which would eventually lead to them being the #1 in the much longer term. At some point, one of them will have to be cut loose, because you could have 18 All Australian ruckmen on your list, but you'll still only ever be able to play 1-2 of them each week.
From what Broges said this fella is likely to be one of the best rucks in the comp.
I might find that microwave they used in Ballarat and cook my membership before their eyes.I can’t explain how ******* moronic our club would have to be to keep Ryder but let ladhams go after persisting for him for years when he’s exploded into amazing form and all we would likely get for him would be a 3rd rounder in a poor draft.
I would jettison the entire board, coaching panel, and staff before I would do something this ******* stupid.
I hope not that would be terrible.
In regards to pure rucks, I would have thought we retain Ladhams and Ryder pursues other options
If Ladhams is willing to stay for a 2-3 year contact, then give it to him. Opportunity and money is elsewhere, but if all is to be believed, he'd prefer to be here.I don’t think it’s about us not wanting Ladhams, it’s about Ladhams actually wanting to play AFL. No young player would pass us the number 1 ruck role to be 3rd string ruck. That’s providing we also lose Ryder. Lycett is number 1 and Hayes will very quickly become number 2, probably as early as next year.
That would mean that Ladhams would have to wait for two long term injuries to get consistent games. Just doesn’t make sense for his own career. It would be horrible to lose him, but I don’t think we have much of a choice.
If I had the choice between keeping Hayes or Ladhams, I would 100% be taking Hayes.
Just hopefully we get well compensated.
Yep. This is exactly how we lost Polec. Make our best offer now and get him signed up before someone else makes an offer better than our best one.They need to get it done ASAP or north or someone will offer a godlike offer, like the saints are offering Draper. If that happens ya can’t blame him for going
