Schache?

Why would we give up a fringe tall for another fringe tall? Other than the contract amount. Schache isn't good enough at AFL level whereas Tomlinson is.

Tomlinson has 2 years to go at a media reported 500K a year. That is too much for a backup mainly playing VFL so the club would be keen to move him on and he'd be looking for options to play at AFL level.

To me he is more a 3rd tall than a key position player. Odd though that he was not tried in Tommy Mac role at some point in 2022.

The football media led by The Age is reporting two years to 2024.

BUT

The following show his contract is to 2023:

  • AFL Press Release at the time he transferred from GWS.
  • Footywire which is usually accurate.
  • The Contracts thread prepared by yours truly is almost never wrong 😉

However, if anyone can find something more reliable than the football media great but until then its best to stick with one year to the end of 2023.

I reckon one media person has said to 2024 and they have all jumped on the bandwagon!

I’d think the Dogs know their defence needs improvement but wanted us also to absorb some of the contract.  They’ll need $$$ for Lobb but send potential  Dunkley $$$ away. 

They are also bringing in Liam Jones for nothing

Cordy signed with Saints, could open the door for Thommo?

I actually think it closes the door on Thommo. Doubt that the Dogs will pursue him, and can't see too much interest from other clubs. 

Either way, Tomlinson would be a salary dump by us, and we'd need to pay part of his salary and not expect anything in return.

Cal Twomey said Tomlinson has 2 years to go on his contract and Deledio didn't correct him so I think that sounds the case - @Lucifers Hero

They're actually in the hands of another club wanting Tomlinson, I'm sure we'd do the deal to free the cap.

Delidio has never struck me as the most intelligent bloke. It's actually in your hands Brett if you come up with a suitor for him

Thanks,

AFL press releases on trades are usually accurate. 

What I think has happened is that the club and Tomlinson have quietly renegotiated his contract giving him an extra year to the 4 originally and spreading the $ a bit more.  We did that last year with Lever, Gawn and a few others.

In a way it makes Tomlinson slightly more attractive if the $ are less in the last two years not so much if we back ended it...

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
