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

Marc McGowan, Jay Clark, Glenn McFarlane and Jon Ralph

I think the most surprising thing about the article is it took 4 journalists to contribute to it.

Unless there's more copy after?

Excellent news! Was worried about losing Stacky, would be a waste of talent.

As an aside, how is that article recommended to be a 13 minute read? Must have some slow readers at newscorp :ROFLMAO:

They all have a limit on how many words they know so need to collaborate.

Important signing. Sky is the limit with this kid but we all know the significant challenges that lie ahead. Really hope he shines in 2022.

The last of the major signings.

Super talented kid. Can play back or forward.

Thrown forward in the last 10 minutes in the Hawks game and got us back in the game.

Once Syd is done, hope we now focus on Cumberland.

Think the kid has some serious talent which we saw some glimpses of later in the VFL season.

This actually has a name - Collective Vocabulary, which coincidentally was also the name of a bay gelding that came last in the 34D Cup at Morphetville back in 1906. Records show this was the exact same race that also introduced punters to the brilliant Hyphenated Syntax, a feisty beige mare whose performance was enhanced via an extra fetlock in each hind leg. Ask any punter over 143 old, and he'll tell you the only better horse of that era was Past Participle, an off-white stallion that would have won every race it entered, even with Clive Palmer on its back.

His manager (Paul Peos) was quoted as saying Stack has all but signed a 1yr incentive based contract in the Hun today.

This is quite funny really.
Signing something is a definitive process..one has or has not signed.
To say he has all but signed is like being almost absolutely certain.
Just another funny quirk of our language. Nice actually.
PS.. I think Syd is a rare talent . I would have signed him for a few years , made him as happy as possible and just let him play.

I would do the same, but I think it reflects on his lack of commitment to get/maintain his physical condition and possibly from his side, a desire to not lock himself in and earn more coin.
I hope the second happens, because we'll all win if Syd gets it right.

Yep, as we say in the software game it's binary. Signed or not. It's not 80% signed.
