Tim Kelly? Not sure what your point is? Never played for Freo.
My point is that he wanted to go home to Perth but he never even considered Freo as an option; would only go to the Eagles. That's an indictment on Freo as a club when they can't even get consideration in a 2 horse race.

The club makes Bolton who is also.
Would Bolton be the same at North or Stkilda? I don't think so.
Hardwick is a brilliant coach and coaches to players strengths.
Not sure other coaches do especially Buckley.

Don't disagree but it is a clear example of how Freo is perceived in Perth. They are the clear poor relation and have basically achieved jack *smile* in 27 seasons in the AFL.

These types of scenarios are at our feet if he does decided to leave.
Cerra on the G would be unbelievable and throw in a pick under 10.
Shiitt happens, its not 1998, we draft extremely well now and i would be confident the club could find another quality kid.
Have a look at the 3 kids Essendon found because duds like Fantansia and Danihiar wanted out.
I would keep Bolton every day of the week but you can't bend the club over either.
What ever happens we will be ok.
3 picks under 20 and Cerra.

I would rather earn $600k a year at Richmond winning flags with my friends at the club i have been at since i started , In the heart of Richmond / swan st etc with good coaches and facilities.

Compared to a club like North where you are getting belted every year with players coming and going and miserable environment earning $800k a year
Half goes to tax anyway

That you Dusty?

Well said. Preference is to keep Bolton but if he does decide to leave then he’s going to fetch a very hefty price.

Where not trading in a Datsun but a Porsche.
What ever way you look at it, the value will be extremely high who ever shows interest in him.

Can it be considered a rumour when the guy who tweets it has made it up?
Who cares?
This shitt will continue till Bolton makes his decision.
All i know is we are holding a Royal flush currently.
Its unbeatable.
He stays, great we keep a star
He leaves, we will get gold in return.

Spot on. Particularly if we make Bolton a triple Premiership player this year.
We should get 3 1st round picks for 1 player.
If the Jeremy Cameron deal was worth 3 top 10 picks then this one surely is.
That would give us 5 1st rounders 2 second rounders and 2 3rd round picks.
This scenario would drive the opposition clubs into a complete tail spin and would nearly be worth doing the deal just to watch heads all over Australia explode.

Can't lose

Im sure the AFL will impose a rule that no team can have more than 2 first round picks. in this year and next years drafts.....

Can we just pass on our 2nd rounders to get them even angrier?

Where did you hear that? Something reported in the west?


I wish.

I have posted on here before that I have a very good contact regarding Shai, and that person has been adamant that Shai is happy at Tigerland.

Was talking to my contact today, and asked about Shai, and stuff me he sort of grimaced and said, not real sure things have changed.

Apparently he was talking to Shai on the weekend.

He told me that Shai is still very happy at Tigerland, but is weighing up the responsibility of moving back to WA to support his Mum and elderly Nanna.

Sounds about right if you go with what Ralph has been saying. Was expecting it to be sorted earlier, then said end of the year suggests that something has changed in Shais mind.

Doesn't sound good. Fingers crossed we can convince him to stay.

That's very depressing.
