Apparently Stacky has a pre season fitness clause in his contract that financially rewards him for turning up in good condition ( which means he meets certain benchmarks) .
If that hasn’t motivated him, he probably won’t make it

He may not make it but I think we need to remember that a player called D.Martin did the same thing by turning up unfit to preseason training early in his career.
Personally I am very much in favour of letting the fitness and development guys deal with him and we will see what happens. The lack of anything concrete coming from the club and the media makes me think they are.

Reckon some are over reacting with Stack's current condition.

Stack began last pre season in similar poor form, but gained conditioning during the pre season.

I've watched the rd1 game vs Carlton a couple of times and Stack looked fit and sharp, and was ready to take on 2020. Then COVID hit and his form dropped away considerably.

He's young and at this stage of his career his conditioning seems to drop away quickly when he's off the track and it takes him a while to gain it back. The gap will shorten with more preseasons and experience. Got faith in our conditioning guys to sort out Sydney's fitness.

Not making excuses for him or anyone in particular ,

But I wonder how many guys when covid hit , lost their routine/motivation to train with the belief that the season is unlikely to go ahead , then got completely caught out being out of shape when it did .......... oh *smile* we are playing now ?

If all is well why isn't he training with boys ? Doesn't make sense to me I reckon club have maybe pulled the trigger.

Not buying any exuses from him had a good 3 months since the Gold coast incident get himself right and ready if he couldn't do that see ya later.

Sill nothing in the press about Stack and the WA press in particular would love to stick the boot in so I'm betting he's simply had to come back to Perth due to a family issue.

I'm just glad we still haven't got Stengle as well.
Always amazes me that someone would throw away a $300-$400K/yr gig and all the trimmings that come with it. Tyson will never earn this kind of coin again. Three incidents in a year says he's gone I'd reckon.
