Jarrod Brander a potential trade target (And play him as a defender)?

Good athlete and has a good set of skills. Play him as the 2nd key defender (with a focus on intercepting).
[/QUOTE]
I’ve always seen him as a forward.

It’s obviously all speculation re contracts.

We have a bit of a history of offering length, probably on the basis of a discount. JJ, Macrae, Hunter, Dunkley, Naughton and others have been backed in with long term deals, probably for a cut price.

re Bruce, I actually suspect he’s not on massive dollars and not the amounts talked about here. He was more or less told by the Saints to explore his options. As for Keath, length was a big factor. Adelaide weren’t willing to offer more than two years from memory. That might be what Ricciutto was alluding to.

If we end up in a Collingwood situation I’ll be seething but I don’t think you take on a Treloar type contract if you’re sailing close to the edge.

Brownless on the Sunday Footy Show saying Collingwood are preparing a massive contract offer for Bontempelli in the off-season.

It will get us Pick 19 & 20 as it would be band 1.

Would also free up $1 million dollars to throw at Rowell or Ben King. Would also allow us to pay Dunkley the Essendon $$ he is after or possibly throw a million a year at Tommy Boyd to come back.

Once they steal Bont we can start preparing a massive contract offer for Nick Daicos with all the cap space we now have.

Will be interesting to see how Collingwood go with a quarter of their salary cap used on two players.

There’d be almost zero chance Bont doesn’t re sign with us. Stated in an interview over the off season that us fans don’t have anything to worry about in regards to his contract.

That doesn’t mean he can’t sign elsewhere, but it does mean he’d look like the worlds biggest sh*t bloke if he did.

Doesn’t seem his style.

They could try Dunkley instead. 🤔

Isn't the story pies did the big offload planning/hoping for one the big FAs - Bont, Cripps, Merrett. Every chance they fail on all 3 even if is true.

Players like Naughty & Timmy give me slight uneasy feelings for the future, probably unjustified considering they’ve both been quick to sign up long term in the past with no fuss have been on big money and playing AFL since very early on and both look like super popular guys around the club. But Bont literally doesn’t even cross my mind, never been more confident in a player staying.

Just about everyone else... meh no one else is that important we can’t cover them really.

Timmy has a mrs down in Vic and Naughton seems very settled in Vic. We could end up losing a Lipinski due to midfield mins.

Can’t see north moving tarrant.

Need some stef martin replacement ideas. Hope he’s still good to go next season, but just in case.

English may be a better forward/ruck for his whole career to be honest.

Maybe Sam Hayes?

Very much a #1 ruck. He is at Port. Great prospect - 21 yr old, been on their list for 1.5 years, and just signed for 2 more (contract finishing in 2023).

Plays really well in SANFL but.... yet to play a single afl match! If he’s still 0 games at season’s end then gettable, with lots of training already into him.

Aside from him, if Stef was to retire at end of 2021 (unlikely so far) then perhaps Goldstein who may be rejuvenated by a switch of teams...
