His management team must be licking there lips thanks to his season last year and the fact his a restricted free agent. If he strings a few good games together early or has a match winning run against Richmond at a packed MCG you could see a new record for biggest AFL contract. The Ablett and Buddy moves required a special set of circumstances that don’t exist at this time so can’t see him moving but Carlton will have to pay$$$

Gun player, but nowhere near the marketability of Ablett or Buddy.

Carlton are going to have to pay a decent amount in any case, but it’s going to be in line with the kind of contracts we’ve re-signed our other stars on.

Doesn’t have the marketability of them yet but say he wins a Brownlow next year then he could

He’s not a restricted free agent. He’s only played 3 seasons.

That will probably happen but it doesn’t equate to being more marketable as a player eg when Neale and Mitchell. The average pundit is well aware of Walsh and his capability as a player.

Buddy and Ablett have that god tier X-factor that puts bums in seats.

Seems like too good of a dude to leave. Might get 10 year deals thrown at him for stupid money, wouldn't blame if he took that sort of offer.

Lol what noise?

Missing home pfft, it's a 1 hour drive from Melbourne to Geelong.

These guys quite often like living near the great ocean road instead of Melbourne

Would be a crazy get for the cats if the pull it off. Would go a long way from reducing the upcoming cliff
