That seems fa for a player of his caliber though I believe it’s the system following a mid season listing , is only 12m then he gets a real contractNot sure if anyone has responded but I think I read somewhere he will be on 80k base and 4k match payments.....unsure of the tomato though....
Give your wife the Big Footy account details , She knows what she is talking aboutI posted this in the GF preview thread
Here’s a transcript of a conversation with my wife over the Pickett selection. Keep in mind my wife knows as much about footy than my big toe with an ingrown toe nail.
TI: Hey darl Tigers are playing a first gamer in the Granny on Saturday. ( meticulously sipping on a JP Chanet red lubricating tonsils and larynx before Blues night).
Wife: I’m busy and who cares as he must be good if they picked him. ( stressfully looking down into a pan with enough smoke coming out of it to attract the climate control protesters).
TI: Aaaahhh it’s not that simple gorgeous. ( taking another sip , but a lot slower)
Wife: Nothings ever simple for you and as if anyone would pick somebody if he wasn’t good.
TI: Yeah I understand that , but he wasn’t even on our list six months ago. ( Looking at her glass to see if it was actually water she was drinking)
Wife: Well what does that tell you then ? Obviously he is good.
TI: That’s a good way of putting it and I guess you’re right . ( Slowly squirming out of my chair pretending I needed to visit the smallest room in the house).
Nah the way I understood is a rookie has an 80k base wage that is outside the salary cap, we’ve given him a new contract as a rookie bc we/he gets a free 80k hit. It’s 80k plus whatever we’ve offered him. What that other amount is I have no ideaNot sure if anyone has responded but I think I read somewhere he will be on 80k base and 4k match payments.....unsure of the tomato though....
I think we can go higher than that.Won't be a full house. Only 85k .... he might as well just retire now as it's all downhill from here
Thank god he got his looks from his mum
