If Bont was already 26-27, I think there is a good chance he would have signed a 5 year extension, but I'm not at all surprised that this is only 2 years. How many players of Bonts ilk are signing long term extensions at 23 yo??

Two years because he wants to know if the dogs will be good or sh*t by then.


Disappointing tbh
Dogs better be at their best otherwise hes leaving.

Bloody doomsday here again.

Rejoice, he’s committed for the next 3 seasons & we don’t have to go through 2019 with a distraction all year fueled by grubs like Barrett on who’s lining him up as an out of contract signing.
Agree and to be exact it’s a 2 year extension so he is contracted for another 3 years.
It’s smart play by his manager to do the 2 but it also protects the club to an extent. 5+ year deals are inherently risky.
Happy we will see him for the next 3 years and by then I will have the car park pothole fixed!

Would like to know why only two years.
I’d say it’s either he’s waiting to see how we go in that period, which is a bit worrying as you’d like players like Bont to commit long term.
Or, his hip issues are worse than first thought and the club is taking a cautious approach.

I shudder to imagine the angst and doomsday scenarios appearing on this forum towards the end of 2021. Think I'll take long service leave around about then :(.

Must say was surprised with the 5-7 year rumours. If I was the Bont (dreaming), I'd only sign for 2 years too. Reckon that's his agent's call to open him up to FA in 2022. Doesn't mean he will go, but will allow other clubs to ask the question and it may push up his $ value for his next Dog's contract. Just being smart.

All good.

Has anyone else got a Bontempelli tatt?
I reckon if you blokes get them as well he will be a much better chance of staying in 3 years as he will feel guilty otherwise

Love it when he kicks but some of his handballs tonight were extreme next level. AFL has a love affair with Cripps ATM and Bont is yesterday’s news for some but Bonts best >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Cripps best.
