Agree Carts.

Carr looking for an extra 3 years.

Martin will be Tiger for life. It’s just a matter of how long?

It was widely reported and acknowledged that he signed a 7 year contract at the end of 2017. That would mean it expires at end of 2024 season. Unless there is something in the contract that Carr and the club is not telling us?

Anyway worry about it if it gets to that stage. But that’d be just like Sydney; offering a huge contract to a bloke well into his 30s. Ridiculous even if he is one of the best of all time. Superficial club from a superficial city.
Attempting to buy success isn't a new thing for Sydney.
Personal i reckon once he's done with Footy he won't be living in Melbourne anyway as he wouldn't be able to get out of bed without ppl hassling him etc.

My view - press will beat this up to try and distabilise the Tigers like every other time they come out with this type of crap. Surely at least one of them can add 2017 plus 7 and then ask some relevant questions re contracts etc.
Media? Do some research? C'mon mate now ur just being silly ;)

all this Carr rubbish doesn't put me at ease with Bolton needing a new deal. My impression of Carr is he will happily sell to the highest bidder not matter what is best for his client. Don't think Bolton's signature will be easy.

That said, BT, Martin did turn down quite a bit of money on offer from North Melbourne that was well over what was being offered by RFC at the time he re-signed in 2017.
I doubt Martin is particularly bothered/affected by Carr's comments at this point in time ... reckon he's just making some noise on behalf of his client, but probably mainly for himself.

What would a contracted Dusty be worth in 2yrs time?
In 2 years time he might be delist material.
Don't worry what Carr wants, he is chasing the extra cash.
Dusty could possibly play to 40.
But a football career can end very quickly.
Look at fuddy buddy. That has ruin Sydney. He is on a million plus, they can't recruit anyone and have lost a million players to other clubs because of the Franklin deal.
Dusty stayed at Richmond for less because of the friendships he has and just to be in the same forward line as castagna is another big catch to stay.

Dusty has made more $$$$$$ by staying at Richmond than what he would have made at Norf.

And, he's now got 3 cups and 3 medals!

This wasn't a Carr initiated story was it? I thought some scribe made up a hypothetical to fill column inches and then reached out for Carr to comment on said hypothetical. Carr, being who and what he is, was never going to miss a gift wrapped opportunity to put mystique into one of his stable's biggest names.

Absolutely nothing in it.

Carr would have argued that Dusty shouldn't have to cop the 5% reduction that was being applied across the board - no doubt this is his pissy response to being told by Benny and Blair to take a hike. Players got off very light at 5% given our soft cap got a 35% cut.

We've bent over backwards to accommodate the merkin yet he continues to undermine the club when it suits him.

That hadn’t been his form previously, last time Bolton was out of contract he was in the vfl with a wc contract in front of him .not to mention the number of re signings with dusty ,,,,and you were saying

Dusty and Cotchin will continue together. once Cotchin goes (maybe end of 2022) it will be a different situation. I'm hopeful we can win one or two more premierships during this time. If Dusty wants to leave then, it's ok with me. He has done his bit for the club, leaving for swans will be first round compensation pick, this will aid.

Check out Dusty's last goal in the GF. The motion of turning/pivoting and shaking off Flopperfield was all done while remaining on the balls of his feet.

TBR tells us the Dusty sux at all other sports but maybe he has a career post football as a dancer :cool:

Just get a more competent dance partner, Dusty. That clown just keeps falling over :D
