As a restricted free agent Gaff will probably come at a high price simply because the likes of North Melbourne and St Kilda will bid up his dollar price. (Correct me if I'm wrong but I assume Eagles only have to match the price of the club he wants to go to. In other words if there are three clubs bidding for him and he picks the lowest offer it is that offer that the Eagles must match.)

 

player choses club. methos just have to match that club's offer

all other offers become irrelevant

Looking forward to the DEES GET OUT THE GAFF HOOK headline 

“Dees gaff a big fish” 

The media are so ingenious.

Yes yes yes. Gaff would be another star and make our midfield completely awesome. 

I think we would have to consider the retirement of Vince to fit him in. 

When we win the flag this year, I think Vince and Lewis may bow out.

That'll free up some cap space...

Jake Niall writing that the Dees have space for Gaff is code for the Dees being right into Gaff and well in the race to sign him.

Our midfield is probably already the best in the comp and thats with all the elite young talent yet to play anywhere near 100 games of footy.  The improvement to come will be scary.

If you add in Gaff to that....   whats the level above scary?

This is true but there wouldn't be much difference higher or lower than the top failed billed (if the failed bid for him is the highest offer).

The way North sees it, it is slowly but surely pricing competitors out of the market over a few years, and they will eventually land a big fish. If they play finals this year (and they will), that only helps their chances.

I'd focus on re-signing Brayshaw and T Mac first. Then Gaff comes after that.

well given gaff won't make a decision before october (unless to weagles) then that is pretty well axiomatic

He will play for whoever he chooses, as all offers will be good monetarily, and it all boils down to what other factors are important to him. If money is everything, you will see him at either North or Stkilda. If its finals action, welcome to the MFC A.Gaff. That is all assuming he wants out of W.A. ofc.

The Eagles will only match his offer if it doesn't qualify for a round 1 compo pick, which it certainly should, based on his current value.

If he hasnt signed before the finals he is gone.

MFC will be up to their eyeballs in this.

I very much hope we land him as he would slot in perfectly.

I have no inside info, simply a feeling that he's already verbally committed to us, ala Lever.

I expect a Demonland "insider" will take a similar guess sooner or later too.

I hope we don’t get him. I’m scared of the blow back from Shannon Hurn and the rest of the Eagles players. They’ll be so mad.

Maybe they’ll bully him when we play them like Adelaide did with Lever.

He’d cop a bloody good booing over here if he left. Eagles fans boo their own for dropping a mark.

You left out the one who knows the inner workings of the club better than anyone and whos sources are as good as it gets.  Hes the only one who knows if Gaff is coming or not... and not even Gaff himself knows.

Paging him now  @Satyriconhome

I’ll answer for Grand New Flag. I’ve been told Gaff is keen on coming to the Dees. Plenty of water to go under the bridge until then but signs are all positive. If the deal can get done it will get done.

Don't give up your day job, I did speak to Jason Taylor today but it was about Austin Bradke

On Gaff, we don't seem to have issues with outside run at the moment, but this is first season Gaff has consistently played inside as well, out of necessity

We would be silly not to enquire, I just don't want us in a bidding war
