Spot on. Have a look at some of the defenders that have received AA honours ahead of Vlastuin in the past few years.

Darcy-Byrne Jones!! FFS. Luke Ryan!! FFS. Tom Stewart has 2!! Brad Sheppard, Caleb Daniel, Michael Hibberd, Sam Docherty!!!!

FFS!!!! What a joke.

I’m pretty harsh on Richmond players but I can’t have any of those blokes ahead of Vlastuin.

Flaming outrage. JIBBERD!!!!!!!!!

Absolute superstar. Integral part of the greatest backline I’ve ever seen. Should have had a AA or two.

Fantastic result.

Very happy to see Nick play out his career at Richmond.

But anyone else have concerns about risk of concussion ending his career early? I might be wrong but my perception is that he has had a few.

(not wanting to take anything away from this good news)
.luv the guy & his football ...i thought the danger hit was his fifth/more concussion...apologies if wrong.
.if so absolute madness...is early forced retirement part of salary cap?

Long deal, likely took unders as Dimma intimated.

The long deal could also indicate he is being considered as Captain. I think he would be a good captain and would prefer to see a player who can captain for a few years rather than a year or two in the twilight of their career.

Rapt to see him re-signed, salt of the Earth defender, under-rated but such a valuable player.

What a great bunch of young men we have at Punt rd , pretty much all taking less to stay part of the Club, others have left for opportunity and that’s fair enough, I think Brando is the only one who left for coin

.... coin ..... but security mainly I reckon
Brando was probably not a certain starter if he’d stayed
It was win-win for him and the club and good on him

But having Vlaustin confirmed for the 5 years is fantastic
