Tom McDonald - Ready to Re-sign?

Recommended Posts

This article is a about Tom's new role as a forward http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-02-11/stressfree-dee-relishing-his-shot-up-forward

But there is a tantalising line at the end (re contract):  "I'd like to get something done soon," he said. The club hasn't come back to me with anything yet, but it'd be nice to have it done earlier rather than later."

Last time he put off contract talks till the end of the season.  Not so this time! 

Looks like he will be off the Free Agency list before too long.:)

Hmm aren’t Tracc and Brayshaw out of contract this year too? Think next year we may have cap issues when it comes to Hogan’s next contract.

Can not wait to see him permanent forward. Hes a matchup nightmare for opponents, especially with that tank.

I'm waiting for proof. Do we know if old McDonald has bought a farm in the Geelong region? :laugh:

I won't be worried until he puts contract negotiations on hold.

Just looks a natural forward doesn't he? A lot of similarities to Josh Kennedy in terms of style.

He's a terific set shot for goal. As a backman his decision making and dinky kicks are heart-in-mouth stuff.

Will be difficut for other teams to match up again this year.

Obvious two for one deal. Sign Tom and Oscar comes free!

I am not so sure that is such a great deal D4Life. 

I would very much prefer to deal with each player on their merit rather than their parentage.

Your hard to please Hot as Hell.

How about we sign Tom, then independently sign Oscar for free!

If only that were possible D4Life. 

In a more likely outcome, we will pay overs to each of them just to keep them together.

TMAC is worth every Dollar and may  he play for the Dees for the rest of his football life. Big bodied players are a rare commodity and the quicker he signs the better for us.

For all of our woeful recruiting over the years, pick 53 for Tommy Mac has turned out to be a complete steal.

I don't disagree that Tom is a valuable swingman and has been a rare jewel for us at pick 53.

The way the brothers negotiated in the last round was it was 2 of us or none of us - that gun at the head leads to a very different outcome in terms of what "the package" costs.

I certainly would engage with Tom ASAP on a stand alone basis, to secure him. It is other pick 53 that remains that I currently have trouble assessing. In my view he will be either very good or useless and we will get some clarity on that over the course of this year.

I would be more than happy if he has a break out year, but prefer to wait until that happens before paying for it.

Frost is a clearly more developed, faster, stronger and more willing backman at the moment. They both have their weaknesses, naturally, but Frost is 2 ears in front of O Mac for my money.

I've seen this written elsewhere HaH, and I find the suggestion of blackmail disturbing.  What convinced you that it is 100% fact (?); or is it just speculation?

I believe Tom Mac is our most valuable player. He is first picked for my 22.

He is proven, tough and reliable. He seemingly has come back very quickly from his end of year operations and I would be happy to have him as a stand alone captain. I bet other teams envy us and I see him not only kicking 50 if he is not sent back to help out,  but goal assisting many others this year. Reminds me of Ross Glendinning.
