Hand in your badge, Tony....:shh

Why should he?

He earned that badge fair and square and still has the Kellogg’s placket to prove it.

One of the most ludicrous things I have seen someone say.

We'd have to be offering BEllis a touch over 200k for that statement to be correct. We're offering double that.

Hand in your badge, Tony....:shh

You think we're offering Ellis $450,000/year?

I bloody well hope not.

I put him somewhere between 250-350 max given his output and our list requirements.

400k.

Don't worry, this is the hallelujah farewell tour before his pay day. Barring the extraordinary, there's only 2 more weeks of Brave Brando.

After last week he may have played his last game....

What will you do when you don’t have to stick up for this little 💩?

Who is your next fav?

To be honest I respect your commitment the Brave Brando
 :cheers

I don't know who I'm gonna turn into a fearless premiership hero next yet BT. Maybe Menadue can be saved but The Machine has dibs on him.

FWIW I reckon he'll stay in the side and have one of his good games in the prelim....:shh Either that or he'll be dropped and can mentor the likes of Grimes and Flossy on how to stay composed in tough situations. Brave Mentor Brando has a good ring to it.

Please don’t choose Menadue as it might be a short friendship.

Pick one of our young stars that really have a go.
I’m willing to share my man Baker if you want?

PREMIERSHIP TIGER’S TIME AT PUNT ROAD ALMOST UP

Brandon Ellis is still very much a part of Richmond’s premiership quest for 2019.

But the 26-year-old defender is destined to join the Gold Coast Suns on a mega-deal, says Sam Landsberger.

“You can just about take this one to the bank,” Landsberger told AFL Tonight.

“I think he’ll sign that five-year contract and head up to the Gold Coast Suns.

“It’s a great get for the Suns. He might be a dual premiership player by then.

“He’s a free hit, they get him for nothing as a free agent.”

Dons register interest in premiership Tiger Brandon Ellis (Foxsports)

DONS REGISTER INTEREST IN PREMIERSHIP TIGER

Another club has entered the race for Richmond premiership wingman Brandon Ellis.

Carlton had pursued Ellis fiercely for most of the season before losing interest lately.

Gold Coast has been linked to him for a long time and have reportedly tabled the longest offer.

But now the Herald Sun has reported Essendon is now in the hunt to acquire the star Tiger.

It is understood the Suns have put a four-year offer in front of Ellis, but the Victorian would prefer to remain in Melbourne if a club can come close to matching that deal.

Ellis has played 21 games for Damien Hardwick’s side in 2019.

Exactly right. Can't believe it's taken someone this long to report accurately on his mindset

But he wont' take a pay cut to stay at Richmond right?

So it's about the money then  :huh

I dislike Bellis more than most but even I don’t begrudge the kid a chance to earn more money, as by the sound of it the offers are miles apart.
We simply don’t rate him highly enough to offer him what others like the CG can.

It’s a win for us both ways if you look at it- get rid of Ellis and get a decent pick in return.

One clubs trash is another clubs treasure apparently.  :lol  :lol

It's a job in a lot of ways to them, not for us.

They want the money and I don't blame them.

if anyone offered me a 50% raise to move to a new organisation I'd be gone in a heartbeat!

He wants to stay here, WP. But he'd be a lunatic not to take GC's offer.

He's got his future tot think about and this next contract sets him up for life after footy. If you could get 2.5 mil over 4 years or 1.2mil over 3, what would you choose?

If the offers were close then he'd stay here, but right now it's pretty damn hard for him to ignore what other clubs are offering.
