Surely Sydney will up the ante and he'll stay there.
McGlynn is finished, McVeigh maybe and they’ll trade out some lesser lights, ie Reid
They do have the noose of Buddy’s contract though which is highly backended and increasing yearly. Think he goes from $900k this year to about $1.1m next year and Tippett is $850k plus so that’s a lot of coin on two blokes with guys like Kennedy and Heeney coming out of contract soon
The AFL may have to review the COLA although it made no difference to them getting Franklin!!!
Luckily the bulldogs winning the grand final has just ‘proven to everyone’ that all of the concessions including the academies and the cola and the 25 first round picks playing for GWS are not the doomsday scenario that everyone was predicting. /s
GWS are already flag favourites for 2017.
Tinfoil hat thoughts… the result of the grand final was perfect for the AFL. Get Sydney interested, but can point to the exact fact you’ve made above to say that all of their concessions to their Sydney markets aren’t over the top.
I have a feeling that I’ve wooshed??..??
