    Both.... and all thought it is a win-win for the Lions.

    edit.....I took it to mean both, but my interpretation may be wrong on that.

    Sounds like it is a fair way down the path of getting it done. Would be an amazing get for you guys if it happened.

    So in a case like this, do we pick up Hodge as a delisted free agent or do we orchestrate a trade out of respect similar to (not 100% sure it was him) Josh Kelly?

    Loved watching that a few minutes ago. So rarely do we get a pat on the back segment on any footy show. Hope it comes to fruition.

    Credit to Sam McClure he has been saying this could happen for weeks. No one else has followed him in.

    He sounds pretty keen on what we've offered him. Just need to have a family discussion.

    Surely we wouldn't be promoting this if we weren't confident.

    will be a great coupe for young list....will lift standards and will be an eye opener for quite a few players to learn what it takes to reach the summit..

    I doubt we’d ask for anything mate - he would go with our best wishes. Similar to Mitch.

    Will happen, players dont say what he did publically then change their mind.

    It will get done. Luke Hodge will be a Lion in 2018.

    The fact that Lions have followed it up with another tweet on the matter would suggest they are confident
