    Got to wonder if we are doing what Brisbane did with its Daniher free agent signing. A high amount per year contract offer so that Essendon couldn’t match / happy with the compo pick, then smooth it out in a contract renegotiation later on

    If we're not successful in securing McKay we're then running out of options in recuiting a KPD interceptor. Is Reid a possible stop gap measure in that regard? He is due for a non injury year with his injury cycle.

    Probably, though I imagine if the club was "no way" to Reid playing on, the manager wouldn't have made the suggestion.

    This is the normal process. There are some who appear not to realise that there is no draft pick required. The Swans can still do this and retain their current draft picks

    It’s more that people were finding meaning in the decision to extend Reid when that’s not the case.

    I think it’s still up in the air

    The club would be mad to tule him out without resolving their KPP conundrums

    No other club would have been as patient as we have been with Reid. Basically plays every other year.

    I can't see how port can get a deal done, unless they trade out a player. And with radegalea coming in, that makes it even harder. It's a port dream.
    If Dursma is on the table then they have more then enough up their sleeve

    Id say Ports deal with Grundy would hinge more on Melb paying some of his wage more then what ours would

    Happy with Mckay, but 600k longterm is all he is worth, With the AFL itching to help out North, id say that would give him the compo pick they want

    Agree with you on the 600K, but also accept that the deal could be front loaded to get it done

    Loyal, one club, 181 game premiership player. Has contributed loads and hasn't taken huge $$ costing us players.

    No issue with us having been patient.

    Not questioning his character, loyalty and ability. He is not sound physically and hasn't been for some time. If he has taken unders, that's admirable but he has only played around 60% of the games we have been involved in since he was on our list.

    It was fascinating listening to McRae last night after the game waxing lyrical about Graham Wright targeting very specific players to make the team better. McRae went out of his way to praise McStay, Hill and Mitchell last night.

    Targeted skill sets and roles…….that were missing from the Pies team despite coming top4 last season…….interesting approach to compliment some serious drafted players last few years.

    7 of their targeted traded in players were very strong last night

    1/3 of their best 22
