He's talented enough that you are keeping him regardless of list size or sacking him regardless of list size I suspect.Might not need to trade for Stacky. We might just sack him.
I think it comes down to list sizes. If they're smaller we might not seem the risk to be worth it.
Is this just speculation?West Coast were already sniffing around.
Think if anything, this incident makes him less likely to leave.
CJ likely gone still though. Was already half way out the door
Came from a very reliable source on our board, however the info was pre-strip club.Is this just speculation?
Sometimes people tie us to folks from WA, just cos.
As a general rule, we tend to be risk averse with our drafting/trading.
Liam Ryan being the exception to the rule, and having watched Ryan's on and off field development coupled with seeing Stack and Pickett get picked up cheaply might have changed our view on how to assess potential recruits, I am not convinced we were in to Stack.
Is the talk about Balme leaving to go to the Crows got any legs?Richmond is the best place for him to try to get himself back together as a person then a footballer.
I have faith in him.
Our culture is very strong despite the paper darts being thrown by the medja.
That wasn't Stack, that was Elijah TaylorOne example was the WA U18 team, the players discussed Stack and said they didn't want him in the squad, due to attitude I recal.
Sumich over ruled them and he played. The rest is history.
He was living with Monique Conti during lockdown and it looked like they both spent too much time Tik-Tokking and playing video games instead of keeping fit. Now that they've broken up I'd move Stack back into either Dimma's or Balmey's for the summer to keep him in line.It’s not just the COVID breach, it’s that it sounds like he came back to the club unfit and had a disappointing year.
I hope he gets another chance and puts his head down and makes the most of it.
No guarantees though. If I was a recruiter for another club I’d be very wary. Does he want it enough to make it at the top level. Signs are all that promising.
No way you give up on a player like that. He's a mature kid that made a mistake, a few actually because he didn't cope with covid isolation. Not the first and won't be the last. Not everyone is a model Walsh/Smith 19yr old going 25.worth literally nothing in a trade, but could be a genuine gun. We have to atleast try for one more season.
Not only did he have a great debut season on the field but off it he seemed very much the same. Great attitude was one of the things that got him promoted way before expectations. So it is not like he is a ratbag abusing his talent, he just made a mistake, as did CCJ who you would not expect.We simply have to keep him for one more year back in Melbourne. We'd get peanuts for him now and his talent and potential is higher than most, saw him do things in his first year that first year players just don't do. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt that the penny has dropped. If it hasn't then we get nothing for him next year anyway, if he does sort himself out though, the kid has potential to be a star with the right application.
People talk about getting rid of players toxic to culture, I don't think he falls in to that camp yet. There would have been a lot more COVID hub breaches across the league than what was reported this year, players make mistakes but I still think he has one last shot at an AFL career.
Nobody really know but we hope he is not on the table and the club sticks by him and keeps him on the list , But if they have lost hope and want to get rid of him then would be worth very little and free to good home , Similar to ButlerAside from packets of chips, twisties, kebabs and other assorted food items, what is he actually worth to you Tiger fans? And is he on the table?
