I give 3 years guaranteed in a heartbeat...I thought the 1 year incentive laden contract offer was silly - irrespective of his past. Treat him as you want him to be.

Problem with that is, the club took him on a one year incentivised deal when they first drafted him. He stepped up in 2019 n played some premium footy. he then gets a two year deal for 2020 n 2021 and we know how that all turned out.
Stacky simply needs to learn how to put the head down n point his arse to the breeze so it pushes him along the way he's meant to go if he genuinely wants to be an elite footballer.
Nothing at all wrong with an incentive laden short term contract dangling in front of his nose while he's still trying to figure himself out. Meets the expected criteria n then further better contracts unfold before him.
Footy contracts are just another form of business deal, certain requirements need to be met by both parties, not just one. The club's been meeting their's Stacky has a history of stumbling at times.

Yep I understand that approach, however with his talent...another team will say its worth the risk. So we have to take the risk now. The Roos are making a habit of making us pay more (Dusty) or say goodbye to players we would rather keep (CCJ). Can't afford for Stack to be in the latter category.

Exactly the reason I went cold on him, turned up to state football with horrible skinfolds and was dropped for a match. Seems to be a repeat performance but I really hope he pulls his head in. I'd like to think we can put him into an Impey role in defence, his kicking good enough for this position.

Im not buying the 3 years at North rumour

With the amount of kids north have and will have i think this would be a massive risk for them to take on , Stack has a track record of not playing by the team rules off field and that would be the last thing north would be looking to introduce to their young list.

Realistically he has had a handfull of decent games and a *smile* load of issue's
Stevo / Stack combination doesnt look great if you are trying to build a team first culture

Sydney Stack has a 10-year contract with Richmond if he wants it. It’s just split into separate contracts, which he has 100% control over. He knows we won’t screw him.

If he doesn’t believe in himself, he’d jump at a 3-year deal elsewhere. If that’s a decision that appeals to him, then it means he’s not going to make it IMO. Like Yarran.

And unlike CJ, we can guarantee him 25 games if fit. We even cut Houli against his will to make that decision easier.

So yeah... wait it out. Normally, a 1-year deal lacks security, but that’s not the case here. He’ll get more security at Richmond than at any other club. We’ve even guaranteed him game time, as Houli was delisted (not retired, delisted). That means there’s no logical reason for Stack to take a 3-year deal elsewhere unless in his head he knows he’s going to fail and 3 years is more than he thinks he’s capable of achieving.

Happy for us to wait until the salary cap total has been announced so we can take that into consideration though.
