MarlonBrander no one believes you have inside information. Stop pretending.
You can believe what you like, mate.

It is publicly known (try google) that both West Coast and Fremantle were chasing Bolton two years ago. I've never said that West Coast pursuing Bolton 2 years ago was insider info. I just know that West Coast had a 3 year deal on the table for him (players generally don't leave clubs for less than 3 years anyway).

Whatever you decide to do with that info is completely up to you.

Believe it don't believe. It's really no skin off my nose.

Stop pretending you're in the know.

I won't be doing anything with your "information".

If he left he'd be worth 2 first rounders
Many club's would probably pay that. I wouldn't, unless the picks in the teens..

Said before, he is worth more to a team about to or currently contending like The Bulldogs or Eagles, rather than a still rebuilding team like Freo.

Brander And The Eagles 1st and 3rd round picks for Bolton (give or take a pick or so either way) would be a starting point for me in negotiations if Bolton wanted to go home to WA and the Eagles.

I think he stay loyal to the Tigers though.

Very strong draft this year, especially with mids.

The guys next contract is going to be in the upper echelon of AFL player payments... be interesting to see how Richmond fit it in under the salary cap.

Perhaps shai and his manager know this and are looking to see what else is outthere

He will sign 2-3 years at $550k a year would be worth $700k to another club

Players take 20% less to stay at Richmond

Definitely one we should back end given our retirements over the next few years.

Yeah he plays very well when Richmond are winning, when they are losing/struggling, not so much.


And I don't think he was that particularly good tonight against mediocre opposition either.
Agree - 1st quarter was red hot and he had 1 kick. Tiger posted his stats last week and wasn’t named in the best or got coaches votes in their loss. Must go to a good team if he leaves.

He gave away 3 goals when he could have taken a shot himself not to mention countless times he won a 50/50 contest to get the ball richmond way
Not many 22 year olds are showing what he is.

Not sure I buy into that as you could make that case with a lot of players, example when Richmond lose rarely does Dustin Martin play well.

Andrew Embley was talking about him on Triple M perth at the weekend. He said he was worth an early second rounder in a trade.
Andrew Embley either has had to many blows to the head or the saying is true about when you join the media your brain turns to sh*t. People saying Bolton plays well only when we are winning dont watch tiger games. This kid is a jet and I'm stoked he 100% will be staying for another 2 years
