Williams just had a breakout year, winning our most improved award and finishing 5th in the Sutton medal, only behind Bont, Daniel, Libba and Macrae. He replaces Suckling's role in the side, and is fast becoming one of our best players. No way would I be okay with trading him
I’d rather keep Williams than get McAsey.

I highly doubt crows would do that
IF As you expressed Williams is a chance to leave it would be a deal I would be satisfied with.

I never said Williams would leave and personally doubt very much he would leave to go to that rabble. Port are more the danger if he wants to go home.

McAsey will be back in Victoria in 2022, bank it.

Amazing how the mob make things up time and time again isn’t it?

Not remotely worried about Bont and Wallis. Libba I doubt leaves, it's more the concern of premature retirement (whether from deciding to call it quits, or being forced by injury). Williams and Vandermeer I'd hope we are looking to re-sign ASAP

Hope we are-sign Butler and Weightman you would think they wouldn’t cost much in salary wise

Get Bont done and everything else falls into place. Power then knows what he’s got to work with and who is expendable. Dunkley looms as a very interesting conundrum.

If the dogs want him he will be in the red white and blue.

I have no idea if they still have the interest they did in his draft year.
Where is your information coming from? The same guy who told you that it was Dunkley's decision to kick Stringer out of the team and that he would never want to play with him?

God you are pathetic

I said he was part of the leadership group that wanted him out which was a FACT

And it was MY OPINION Dunks would never play with Jake. I never ever said that was info.

Keep making cr@p up, that’s all you do

Bailey Smith worries me a lot. Wanted young player who may chase the big bucks. I will be surprised if he is with us next year.
He had offers on the table but chose to re-sign at the end of 2019. At that time he wasn't even getting many games. Since then he has secured his spot in the side and is in our starting backline. I rate him as our most valuable half back if you adjust for age. Maybe equal with Caleb Daniel. I think he will surpass JJ soon if he hasn't already in terms of overall impact. He should be in our top two highest paid defenders from his next contract.

I don’t see Dunkley as being a conundrum. If he still wants out I think Power would know by now, it won’t be broadcast in the media though and that’s not saying he won’t give his all to the side this year.

I can’t see Essendope being as interested this year given they know the cost and had the opportunity already, only to back off on the deal. Further if he wants out there may be more than 1 suitor which puts Dogs in a better negotiating position

Dunkley would be an amazing list fit for Carlton. Stick him in with Cripps and Walsh and they have a list that starts to look pretty fricking good. I’d be going hard if I was their list manager.

Williams for me should be our priority signing
Bloke deserves his big pay day after such improvement every year.

Looks in even better physical condition going into this season if the photos are anything to go by. Has some serious definition in his shoulders for the first time.

By chance, I think it may have been the first time we played PA at Mars, I happened to sit next to two ladies one of whom had a Dogs beanie and PA scarf on. I asked her if she was confused and she replied "I am Bailey Williams' aunt and we are PA people". She then pointed to the lady next to her and said and that's his mum. Fortunately she had only Dogs gear on. True story.

Based on nothing more than that highly insightful 10 second conversation, I think if (if) Williams were to return to SA it would only be to PA....:eek:
