Doesn’t matter. You always start threads about any player from any club.
Except North. Cause they’re not worth chasing.
Well yeah...
I don’t care to discuss my teams players leaving

don’t worry more threads to come

Although I agree with you about the OP starting probably too many threads, Tim Taranto is probably the 2nd biggest player coming out of contract at the end of this season (after Ben King) and as such, was always going to be a player of great interest.

If the threads are any good we usually put the mod as the OP anyway to make sure it's not hidden for people who have Ziebull on ignore. Ziebull knows the rules about making threads, we've talked about it before – must be OOC this year, anything longer than that must be supported with mainstream media speculation at the very least or it gets either merged into the club thread or deleted. Others are welcome to make threads about North players if they are valid discussion and not trolling crap.

Are you a friend of his?

For mine it comes down to money, I reckon teams will offer much more than gws to get him which would be enticing for Tim to set himself up long term
I hope the crows use most of their spare cap space to get him to AO. Any idea on what his relationship with Nicks was like Sickblue?

Yep. I would have thought Richmond and St Kilda would be at the front of the queue here.

Probably easier to list the (Vic) teams unlikely to pursue TT

Carlton - (can't afford him for S/C reasons I would have assumed)

Collingwood - (in a hard rebuild and I think have their sights on Ben King)

Essendon - (actually undecided whether they will chase him or not, although going to be very difficult with them to get a trade done with GWS after Bobby Hill fiasco last year)

Geelong - No SC space or decent trade assets to get a deal done

Hawthorn - Similar to Collingwood

Melbourne - Don't need him

Western Bulldogs - No trade capital and have q tight salary cap squeeze apparently

Yeah that is pretty fair. I could see a world where Carlton have a crack but as you've said I'm not sure how competitive their offer would be salary wise. Melbourne were interested in him a few years ago but it would be such a pointless trade for us to make now.

We also don't need him unless hes become a 6 foot 8 ruckman or key defender

No idea to be honest, but what I do know is that he’s genuinely happy in Syd (loves it I fact) and he certainly is not the homesick type. Unlikey to leave GWS any time soon.

after getting in Saad, Cerra, Hewitt, Young, Zac Williams; resigning McKay and Cripps; and with Walsh OOC this year the only way we would/could get him in would be if a decent player wanted out.
