He wanted out last year.
The same bloke that told me martin will stay and then told me Lynch has chosen us. Way before it was common knowledge.
He told everyone last weekend he wants out again and that his preferred club is us.
Now all of a sudden Stkilda are getting ready to give him a offer.
St Kilda would have to offer him the Earth to get him.
Can't see a player of Crouch's calibre and towards the latter stages of his career wanting to sign with a cellar dwelling club.
Would want to finish his career at a contending club, surely.

What's his contract situation? Out of contract?

With Charlie Cameron at the Lions and Eddie Betts 33 in a few months, the Crows need a small forward. I propose a straight swap for Butler and Crouch .
Premiership players don't grow on trees:cool:

Totally agree. He won’t leave Adelaide to go to a **** side.
He would already know through his manager we wouldn’t be paying huge bucks to play for us.
Plus the incentive of playing in front of big Crowds and on the G, would be a huge attraction,
If just listened to Tom Lynch speak about what’s it like, he would agree to 80k a year just to experience it.
We are a club now, players from other clubs are going to be lining up to join us. A huge change from when we couldn’t attract no body.

Brad Crouch is a ******* spud. Surely he's surplus to our needs and one we would avoid now that we have Ross, Stack and RCD looking promising. Rather chase a young KPD.

You maintained a similar view when we were linked to Prestia and look how that ended up! Based on that I say sign Brad now! :cool:

well if thats the case, it depends on what his priorities are. Money? or the chance at a flag?

I would too, but it won't happen. we're doing a Cloke brothers job on the Rioli's

Just looked up Crouch’s contract status and he’s contracted until 2020 (re-signed 2016). I’m guessing, coming from the 2011 mini-draft, he would be a free agent then, so Crows will probably want to cash in this trade period.
