I know the talk is he’s close to signing, but the longer it drags on the more concerning that he may request a trade.

At 28, he’s wasted a lot of earning years and I certainly wouldn’t besmirch him for securing his future with a 3 year contract elsewhere. It’s be hard to turn down what essentially will be your final contract.

True about the $$$ and you can’t be critical of someone like Smack given his journey. So $$& will be impt. Just as important will be opportunity to play week in week out in the seniors. If another club gives him a better chance at that then that has to be tempting.


#3842

He’s signed up!

SMACK SIGNS


#3846

Hello, Shaun.


#3847

Our forward lines going to be bananas. stoked to have him sign


#3848

whenever i see smacks arms, all I see is this:


#3849

Hard work pays off. Very happy for him getting 2 years.


#3850

Important player. If he becomes depth we’re going well.


#3851

Well done to SMACK. At his best he is unstoppable.


#3852

:muscle:

:relieved::+1:


#3853

Best news!!!

So pleased he chose to stay and back himself in.


#3854

Jackets work rate hits career high, signing players up big time.

Average goals of 1.6 per game, is better than any other Essendon forward in 2018 . Offers far better ruck backup than Jakey which is an important factor in potentially getting the best out of Tommy.

Persistence of Shaun and the club are to be admired.


#3855

Started out as depth, but by late this year looked like he was becoming integral to our structure, could be very important next year. Particularly for Belch & JD’s roles.

4 years on the rookie list, hard work & commitment rewarded, great to see.


#3856

I see smack as insurance if stewart doesnt come on.

2 years is ok, but I hope he isnt on big dosh


#3857

You are a miserable SOB. Take a moment to back the big fella in. And be happy for a bloke that has spent his whole career not getting those big payouts. All the best to him.


#3858

At the end of 2015 after his strong finish to the year I was surprised he only got a 1 year contract.

At the end of 2016 I was surprised he got another contract.

At the end of 2017 I was shocked he got another contract.

Now i’m glad he got another contract and it’s for 2 years.

Not sure what to make of this
