They might. You'd hope it's not a club that can't afford to pay its own bills, because no matter his genius, it's a big risk in uncertain times.Our only issue might be because he is so good, so young, teams might be prepared to launch a 7 or more year godfather offer at him.
I know I would.
Agreed with your earlier post concerning value, but not this. The fact that he is so young and has already demonstrated that he is an elite player who has the ability to help lead a club like ours to further and sustained success, means he can take a breather and not push for more, but rather secure a long term deal, highly leveraged by performance bonuses.Yep, same here, you'd love to keep him but he will be one of those rare guys who has achieved footy success at a young age, so there's a compelling case for him to set himself up as best he can.
My advice to guys is always take the length of contract and the money when you can get it. You're only ever a second away from an injury destroying your career on an AFL ground and loyalty doesn't pay your bills.
And once he has sown up 'mark of the year', then he might even use two hands sometimes.i reckon he played a bit of George's role this week, and in the last couple of weeks. not the chaos, but the small marking option.
he appears to have been given the licence to fly, and the team appears to look for him in the air.
5 time premiership player? So you dont think he will stick around after his next contract?Yeah he can move for the money or he can be a 5 time premiership legend and 2 time norm smith medalist at the tigers.
he seems a very similar personality type to Dusty and reckon we'll give him a decent deal and he'll stay.
It was South Freo, did 3 or 4 seasons with them as I recall.East Fremantle i think.
Not sure about the point either.
The only thing that could make him leave is money.
I don't think Bolton is homesick
