Angus Brayshaw Re-Signs Until 2028

Recommended Posts

My gut feel is that Gus is genuinely weighing his options because he does prefer/see himself as an inside midfielder, would like to play with Andy and money is potentially better elsewhere, but he's torn. 

It's hard to imagine talks on hold has anything to do with team performance.

I doubt he is going to leave a team he just won a premiership with and could possibly win multiple premierships with

he is going to give that up move his GF across the country so he can play footy with his brother?

He is more likely to accept a big $ offer from the Pies than move to the west

Why do they play footy again for?

How is this even a story?  Premiership Star Angus Brayshaw is playing some of his best footy of this career and I'm sure would feel privileged to be in this position.  He will sign on of course

IMO once a player wins a flag there's three different ways than can go:

- Decide to stick around for more success
- Decide to maximize their added value as a premiership player on the open market
- Decide they've achieved that big thing they wanted to, and now it's about enjoyment (which could be playing with family, being close to family, moving somewhere more low profile etc.)

None of us know which of those Gus is feeling let alone can we gleam anything from very very brief comments inserted into a short news story. (Not saying you're doing that btw, just seems to be a theme in this thread).

Every past player who has won a medal will tell him to chase success - you have the rest of your life to make money and spend it with family.

Hopefully he is surrounded by good people outside of the club.

But that's not what every premiership player has done or will choose to do in the future.

I’m not usually one for speculation on these things but Gus’s answers in the fight MND presser today were a little strange. Petracca and Gawn for example came out and said “I’m Melbourne I’m staying” before their contracts were negotiated. Whereas Gus clearly loves the club, his teammates and the significance of their achievements and success but he was relatively cagey. I think his manager has told him not to say anything so they can get him the best deal, but he is staying. It felt like he wanted to say “I’m staying” as he was almost laughing at the questions but knows he shouldn’t. At least I hope that’s what the slightly weird vibe was..

Not being flippant but how many left the Lions, Cats, Hawks and Tigers during their window? 
 

Put an asterisk on Ablett Jnr and Franklin as they are clearly a unique case.

Players want success more than anything -  it’s what drives them.

He also said Andrew should come to Melbourne….

I'm not saying most players don't want success, and I have absolutely no idea what Gus' intentions are, but fact is players leave clubs even after flags for reasons other than success.

Recent examples I can think of on the spot...

The Tigers lost Higgins, Markov and Ellis during their successful period. Chol not long after. Possibly more that I can't recall.

Cats lost Tim Kelly and Jordan Clark. Ablett obviously too.

Hawks lost Anderson after winning 3 flags, Buddy and Ellis, not sure who else, going back a while now.

Lions was pre-free agency so not as much movement, and testing my memory but reckon Headland left in the middle of their threepeat.

Why put an asterisk next to players that don't suit your agenda? Of course they also count.

Anyways, the point is - IMO some players have their main priorities shift after winning a flag. Sure, they still want to win, but other factors can affect where they choose to do that.

His brother could always come play for the Demons and that way Gus would be able to stay at the D's and have his brother beside him. Problem solved.

Most of those players you mentioned were after the window. Ablett and Buddy went under ridiculous circumstances that no normal player would ever dream earning probably anywhere between m1.5- 2x what they would earn anywhere else.

Again I’m not saying it doesn’t happen, but it is a rarity and most will tell you to chase more medals than $$$

No they weren't.

Ellis left Richmond end of 2019. Had just won 2 flags in 3 years.

Higgins, Markov left end of 2020. Tiges had just won their 3rd flag.

Kelly left the Cats end of 2019. They'd just finished top of the ladder. Clark left end of 2021, Cats had played in a GF the previous year and a prelim that year. Ablett left Geelong in between them winning flags.

As mentioned, Jed Anderson left Hawthorn at the end of the year where they'd just won their 3rd flag in a row. Buddy left after a flag and before they'd win two more.

Headland left Brisbane after winning two flags in a row with them.

Sorry, but your statement is just not correct.

Again, nowhere have I said most players won't tell you to chase success, what I said was after a flag the priorities can shift.

I think Angus stays, Jackson leaves. I get homesick vibes from Jackson. A 2-3 year extension would be great before he heads home though!

What happens if he doesn’t sign? If WC finish last, he can’t just walk out on us to the Eagles right?

Depends if you're getting a game or not.

Barring Ellis, none of those Richmond blokes were walk up starts for best 22 anymore. You can add Dan Butler to that list. Ellis went as an RFA. Richmond could have kept him if they matched the GCS offer

Kelly left purely for family reasons - a couple of his kids had medical issues & he & his missus wanted family support in caring for them. Clark was dissatisfied with the amount of games he was getting.

Jed Anderson had been injury riddled & rarely got a game at Hawthorn

Buddy & Ablett - exception circumstances / $$$$$

Headland I can't recall - maybe go home factor or maybe Freo just threw a blank cheque at him

rather than watching a 10-sec grab on a commercial news channel, i suggest watching the entire press on the dees' website or social feed (twitter, youtube, etc.)

he literally says he speaks to his brother about coming back here, as it's easier to bring someone home

I'm sorry but if Brayshaw wants to go to Freo, I want their first rounder or future first. 

That's a "given" Plus some. I really think we are commenting on something that has not happened as yet. Brayshaw in my mind stays. The family are here and he is happy at the D's. Jackson still living in the "I can't believe it World"

Seriously, looking forward for us to get more than the quality 5 year window with the players we have on the list now we need to continue adding quality players each year to our list. It then becomes a difficult journey to recruit exceptional players. Look at who we recruited when we were either last or even third last... Oliver, Tracca, Brayshaw,  May, Viney, ........... the list goes on.....

Nothing you can glean from that and also some education:

”Let’s bring his brother here!”

His brother would demand midfield time immediately he is that good. So goodbye Viney or Petracca if you want someone to actually play a defensive role in there…

And he will cost us a top pick and a good young player so who is leaving?

”We better get blah blah for him!”

He is a Restricted Free Agent which means the best we will get is ND19 unless we are willing to match his salary and keep him and that may break our cap, so set your expectations.

 

There you go, you’re welcome! 🤗

Buddy did.  Last game for Hawks was his second premiership.  Could have won two more had he stayed.

Some 'lesser lights' at Richmond did similar.

So not a far fetched possibility that Gus or others might.

Edit:  🙄Note to self: read the whole thread before posting as others have mentioned the same.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
