So if Dusty goes we have 1.2mil swilling around in our war chest, who should we go after? 1 or 2 good midfielders, 1 big fish (I don't know who though)??

I wonder how the coal loving Coalition is taking this.

Coal in decline: an energy industry on life support


Special report: The pace of coal plants shutting down in Australia could mean the country’s fleet could be gone before 2040. The transformation is enormous – and seems inevitable

I had a dream that I punched the Merkin in the head for holding our club to ransome all year.

Not sure why the helll our club hasn't bagged the crap out of him publicly for what he's done

Because if they did Dusty would definitely be gone.

But this isn't all the Merkin's fault, Dusty is part of this circus. He has the final say, he has control here. To think or suggest otherwise is ridiculous

So please as I said before Dusty is 25 years old, he can end this now. Ultimately it is HIS decision not Carr's, not his Dad's but HIS.

Have felt all year he would stay but based on the circus this has now become; especially the last fortnigh now I  am not so sure.

The only circus Ive seen is the media beatup - carr is only doing the right thing by his client, dont think he or Dusty have done anything untoward. If Dusty had of signed earlier in the year he'd be getting nowhere near the deal he's going to land now - like him or hate him, he's done a tidy bit of business here

How is this NOW a circus?
They've been consistent about an announcement, Carr hinted that there might be an announcement at the end of the H&A season.
The only change in the past 2 weeks is that Norf have stumped up more cash and probably leaked it to put some media heat on Richmond.
That's isn't the fault of player or manager.

This is a circus pure and simple. I don't think that should be taken as a pot shot at anyone, it is what it is. Every half assed journo is jumping in to it, every other footy fan has heard something about him staying, going, becoming an All Black etc.

Dusty's team have often stated that they will make a decision at the end of the season. We all know that. But that doesn't mean this hasn't become a circus.

Is that Dusty or Carr's fault. Hard to know for sure because who knows where the misinformation coming out in the media is coming from, although I think it was predictable it would degenerate to what it is as the end of the season drew closer, and I do personally think that was part of the plan in working out a new contract. It will be interesting to see if this has repercussions in the future as I can't see many clubs wanting this to happen again. I can't recall this level of hysteria around Ablett, Franklin or Dangerfield's decisions.

I take WPs point though. This is a circus, and the only person who can stop it is Dusty when he announces his decision.

the prestia and yarran effect starting to bite.

Wouldn't think the Yarran effect would make too much of a difference. That would be off in a year and they could back end a 7 year contract slightly to compensate for that.

Imagine losing Dusty because of Prestia. My goodness.

back end means more tax doesnt it? So not sure players would go for that.

prestia deal though @750k. lol

The only one that needs to pull his finger out is our captain who has gone missing last few games and playing poorly .Can't shake a tag.Needs a big game this week leading into finals.I still maintain goes missing far to often when heat is on.
