    Sounds like a deadset peanut. No thanks.

    2019 Fixture

    My two cents is that this is a really rubbish fixture, for all our 'blockbusters'. Geelong in Geelong, again. North is Tassie, again. Worse this year because we play them when a top 2, 4 or 8 spot will be up for grabs. West Coast in Perth, again. Playing teams in Alice that are used to warmer temperatures. again. And we lose our QB home game. At least we finally get a home game against Essendon and we get to spank St Kilda twice. We also could well be 4-1 or 5-0 going into Anzac Eve - Essendon are our biggest threat in those first few games, I think Sydney and Geelong in particular, but Port as well, are candidates for a pretty big fall next year.

    The Day the Contract Died

    Contracts protect the employee, not the employer, and that is the same for all of us. I wonder how many of you who complain about footballers changing employers would think twice about ditching your own employer if a competitor came along and offered you double the pay and work you enjoyed more. Give me a spell.

    Absolutely hates Melbourne. He'd say anything.

    Maybe he hates being there....

    I wonder whether things change, and he thought he could get home easily and it would all be good. Now it hasn't worked like that, perhaps he realises what a mess it will be playing with us. Still, imagine playing with GC next year. Yuk. Hogan isn't exactly a culture builder.

    Tend to agree, equally we're putting May in the position where he can't publicly state his intentions in the same way as Hogan isn't, so we're kind of giving him cover to wait it out without being under pressure to go public, and also saving face if it all falls through.

    After all that bluster, posting how strong a position we are in on every single page of the thread, and having the gall to call me jelly-kneed when I proposed pragmatism early on. Lol at you, my friend.

    Well yes, hence the reference to going in the draft. At which Freo will have one of the first picks.

    Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

    I find the 'player owes club' argument hard on the basis that clubs draft players acting in the club's interests. It's isn't as if they're doing someone a favour - they are doing it because they think it will make their football team better. On that basis, I don't think players owe clubs anything just because the club was clever enough and ahead of the curve enough to find a player who was otherwise in relative obscurity.

    At least you are consistent, but you are wildly overstating our power here. Regardless of the posts above from Wrecker, by saying nothing about staying, Jesse is clearly implying he wants to go. If we can't do a deal, and he refuses to sign long term, we have a massive distraction contract-wise next year right when we don't need one, along with a player who clearly won't want to be there next year, and who already exhibits poor body language when things go his way. This is exactly why Gold Coast want to get rid of May. It isn't worth the hassle. Even if Wrecker is right, a player who is torn is going to have a really hard time properly committing, if Freo refuse to give us a fair deal. He really has to go now, and we really have to take what we can get, all posturing aside.

    Do you seriously think he hasn't??

    Fairly drastic solution, but ok!

    Whoever is driving this speculation, the die is cast in my view. He has to go - there's no way he can sign up to us with any credibility given how long he and the club have let this go on. He's definitely going.

    Depends. Are you Jason Taylor?
