Hate to tell you Zips but Hollywood Hill is gone. No longer. Closed. Kaput.
Where is Relton going to get his burgers from now.
The poor bastard ran the southern wing like a wildebeest getting chased by a lion and thats the last we ever saw of him.
I think its ok to laugh at our recruiting back then after 37 years of crying.

Even if it was still open, Stacky wouldn't go near the joint. He's a kebab man and Hollywood Hill (when did it change from Hollywood Palace?) only sell souvlaki

They must be waiting till final list lodgements before committing to sign him up.
There's no other explanation why stack hasn't been signed up.

Unless anyone has different info, I believe Stack is one of seven players still out of contract - Stack, Miller, Nyuon, Eggy-smith, Cumberland, Garth and CCJ (probably going to North). If the CCJ deal involves Tarrant coming to us then the size of his contract might determine what we can offer Syd. Or, we've made an offer to Syd and negotiations are on-going.

I really surprised no-one has made a good offer to him and picked him off.
Clubs always see the bad in the kids.
We at least have the balls to bring them over. Wc won't go near him there past scares them.
Freo are just as bad as GC
Have look at Collingwood rather pick up Naish then going after Stack.
If stack played at another club 100% i would want the club to go after him

I read somewhere that the clubs don’t know exactly what their cap is for next year - still some haggling going on.

If this is true, then my guess is that both Stack and the club have committed to another year and just waiting to see where it all settles.

How do we know they haven’t though this info generally leaks out , I reckon a lot of clubs would be pretty wary of Stacky that would stop short of putting anything juicy and long term in front of him . Reckon a deal will get dont and he stays I hope so , I’ve seen enough we should offer 2y , clubs knows the lad better than us I spose

Sydney Stack will soon ink a new deal to stay at Richmond — but it will come with several conditions.

Sydney Stack is poised to remain at Tigerland on an incentivised contract, at the end of a tumultuous year that started with him behind bars.
Stack’s agent, Paul Peos, of Inside 50 Player Management, confirmed to the Herald Sun that the 21-year-old had all-but agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

There are various incentives and guarantees built into the contract, including games played next season.

“This is a significant outcome from where we were at the start of the year,” Peos told the Herald Sun of Stack’s new contract. “He’s had a massive year.”

Stack spent Christmas and the start of this year in a Perth jail after breaching Western Australia’s Covid-19 laws during a trip home for his grandfather’s funeral.

He returned to Melbourne in March after copping a big fine for the breach, and endured an extended VFL stint to build form and fitness before breaking into Richmond’s senior side for good in Round 17.

Stack’s talent and hardness have never been in question and he averages 15 disposals across his 33 AFL matches.


Originally recruited in the pre-season supplemental selection period in 2019, the Tigers committed from the start to support him, knowing there were likely to be some bumps in the road.

“He’s been on a hell of a journey, the young man,” Richmond coach Damien Hardwick said in March.

“We’re willing to welcome him back with open arms and get him back on track. He’s like any young man that makes some mistakes along the way.

“He (wants) to make amends and we’re there to provide that opportunity for him.”

Stack was overlooked in the 2018 draft despite being an under-18 All-Australian because of queries on his professionalism and behaviour.

But he endeared himself enough to teammates and Hardwick, who he lived with in his early months at Richmond, to earn his AFL shot.

Stack was a Rising Star nominee in his debut season and played in the Tigers’ VFL premiership that year.
