there was a small article in yesterday's (Sundays) HUN saying Petts was going to get offered a new contract... Petts did all the talking... said he wanted to stay, loved the club, was in the leadership group now and wanted to be part of the exciting times ahead

Most staggering thing in the article was the suggestion he was on around $300k a year on this current contract

Not surprising that he's on that much
250-300k is the average salary in the AFL these days when you take out kids in their first 2 years on fixed contracts
Petts is in the leadership group and has even been Top 5 in the B&F

Anyone know what's wrong with Petts arm?

The news showed him with his right arm in a sling next to Polly.

Yes, unfortunately the operation to remove his digit is too late for his career at Tigerland.  :whistle

He'd be the highest paid Coburg player running around next season.

Can someone "Anyone" please explain to me in any way whatsover htf is this a benefit to the club.

I am just totally dumbfounded by this decision.

All I can think of is putting him on long term injury promoting a rookie and when he is right at the end of next year we may just get something for him, instead of the zero we would get now.

Really Really confused  ???

Hard to understand the reasoning really. Perhaps the contract is a ruse to give him more value when they attempt to trade him....? ??? The only other reasons I can think for this contract is for insurance, to reward loyalty and/or for team morale, none of which I feel is an acceptable reason.

i think, but dont quote me, that if a player has had a season ending serious injury like a knee, he cannot be sacked or delisted and must be given an extra yr, eg rodan. gave him the yr then got rid of him

It's not that he CAN'T be delisted, just have a look at Courtney Johns.
What it is, is that you have to pay for the rehab of a workplace injury, which in the case of a knee is almost a 12 month rehab.
This basically means that you're paying for them anyway, so why not keep them on the list

It's a money thing

I wouldnt think Petts has been offered that much money and it would be a low base with extras if he plays seniors and plays well etc.

I heard today that no new contract has been offered to Petts at this stage so that rumour about him getting a one-year deal is false.

Does that mean Petts was telling porkies to the HUN a few weeks back ;D

Only repeating what was said (and here's the obligoratory wink  ;) )

Petts has also had an op on his shoulder hence him wearing a sling. His girlfriend now has to drive him around to the club and doctors with his bunged up knee and shoulder.
