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?

Very Scary??

In terms of keeping the current group together under the cap (and adding Gaff), what’s the value of a Premiership medallion or two to a player? Financially post-career? Emotionally?

Agree. Players would hold for the premiership chance. I’m sure the group can see we are a big chance at the prize this year and for the next few.

Didn't someone say on here the other day that the salary cap per club increases by 2M p.a. from 2019?

That could accommodate an uplift in Tmac, Brayshaw and Gaff.

Let's aay 750-800 gaff, +200 p.a. for Tmac + 200 p.a. for Brayshare that leaves 600k P.a. for the rest of the group. Would that provide a CPI lift for everyone? Not sure what the base is.

I find it interesting to read speculative posts on who we can afford and who gets what etc, when we are not privy to the club's  list payment information.

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

As a matter of interest, what’s the vibe with Bradtke?

FWIW I asked some scouts about him and they said he was a completely unknown quantity

Yet fellow students at his school say he is as naturally talented as the King twins, [censored] both expected to go top five in this draft

What’d Taylor say?

edit: it is ABSURD that who’re if it doesn’t have an apostrophe in it gets censored...it is an actual word ffs

That's why I just make it all up mate and use approximations. Because I have no idea but you can at least get where I am coming from.

It's not actually. Unlike the contractions "they're" or "we're", "who're" should be written "who are". :P

We are 7-3 and footy is so good at the moment...  but its hard not to get excited about the possibility of Gaff coming to us.

It really feels like it will happen,  or that its at least very realistic.   

2019 (and beyond) midfield

Oliver - Viney - Brayshaw - Petracca - Jones - Salem - Hogan - Gaff - Fritsch - Spargo - Harmes - ANB 

Scary!   Like the Geelong triple  premiership teams who had a midfield that batted 12 deep that was unstoppable, and untaggable...  but ours would be even more dangerous due to the likes of Hogan, Tracca, Spargo and Fritsch who could go forward and tear a game open.  Oliver will soon prove to be a dangerous goalkicker too who can rest forward and menace teams.. the evolution is coming.

Even if we dont get Gaff we will still be downright frightening. 

Yeah, get excited folks.

Previous to this year he lacked inside work. He’s now doubling the amount of clearances per game compared to last season and averaging two more contested possessions per game.

@jane02 anything?

Finally caught up with my source this morning who told me that Gaff definately wants to be a Demon next year. I pressed for a bit more but that’s all he would give me.

Yep, really. That narrows down the field of probably sources considerably (by 50%).

Now, does anyone have a list of every male connected to Gaff and the Demons (somehow) by let's say 2 degrees of separation and work backward.

It should only be about 25000 people.

personally I love this kind of stuff. Jusr remember that If you reveal that source  it will printed in the Sun the next day..

I have a doubt about it though. Mainly because  he's in a premiership contending  team right now AND  if he wins one with the eagles wouldnt it make more sense to him to be chasing $ rather than flags?. Can see him going to the saints if the eagles win this year.

Well, if my memory serves me correctly the 'he' is doctor operating in the Brighton area. That should narrow it down a bit.
