It is but if it were shorter (contract) you’d have to consider it (assuming his contract is genuinely up and we can get him as a free agent). Two years time we are probably genuinely at the start of our window with our list.

Might be some cream for the cake.
2 years at a time and I am totally fine with it.

I'd have though McInerney deserved a shout out for an article like this but alas, it was not to be
I agree, thought McInerney's progression at the end of last season, along with Mcartin's in defence were the especially promising signs from our younger players.
However pleasing to see Dean Cox nominate Mathew Ling as one of the four. Be good for him to have a clear run to at least give him a chance to claim a spot in the seniors.

You would be moving heaven and earth to sign pretty much the best player (Dusty) in the league no matter the contract. Sure it might be bad when he turns 36 for example, but you do it. If he gives us 2 premierships within the next 5 years, we would be saying well done.
Worked well with Franklin (then the best player in the league)

Dustin Martin at the Swans is silly. Yeah he's a good player but he doesn't align with what we're trying to build at the club, not to mention our "No Dickhead" policy, and if we're being honest, he's a bit of a dickhead... Gut feel says that would be such a waste of salary considering what we are trying to do with our squad, I also think his personality would unsettle our squad... Leave him to be a Richmond great, he's not Sydney material.

I mean Dusty is amazing, but I wouldn't really want him imo.
Maybe at this very moment, sure, but at 33-34, I mean we're all complaining about buddy's decline, but at least we had for some of his best footy. Would only get Dusty on the decline.

Maybe a Hodgesque deal, but I'm not really sure what he would add, unless we're still garbage in 3 years.
