If Geelong doesn’t give him what he wants the fans would riot.

it is an interesting thought though, how high a club would go money wise. I could easily see a club like Carlton who is on the cusp of finals giving him 900 to a mill. It is interesting because I feel Hawkins is in career best form.
No. We wouldn't.

As a player type right down the bottom of the need / want list.

Next forward at Carlton on 900k is Harry.

Possibly the most obvious extension in the history of contracts.

Will be interesting to see how fit he can stay. Very much entering the drop off zone.

Definitely his last contract, but given the type of kpf he is, i.e. one that relies on strength over athleticism he probably would have more games left than other 32 year olds. I'll bet he loses more games to suspension than injury over the 2 years

At the age of 1 year contracts being the norm as it doesn't take much for an older player to drop off. A 1 year contract though after this season would have been expensive though, so the 2nd year would balance that out. Instead of maybe $600‐700k for 1 season, it may be $400‐500k over 2
