Have they already started - AP extended 2yrs when wasn't out of contract. Why I ask?

SK offering BH $900,000 and would give up their 1st pick?

Talking about a possible All Australian and a Doig Medallist I'd say their first round pick would be a good starting point and maybe throw in Blake Acres to sweeten the deal.
The contract extension for Alex Pearce, who is an emerging leader at the club, I think is partly sending a message to other young players to get on board and sign up for a long term future. He puts a lot of personal time into his rehab and I think mirrors what our captain was getting at in players committing a bit more in improving themselves in their skills and other areas.

Because he’s good and they want to keep him and can get him at a lower rate than if he busts the door down over the next two years, and you’d be paying a motsa for him then.

We’re short on leaders .....he’s the future and likes the place and can see a bright future, which is great.

That's called pinning down the wounded guy. Good signing, but what about the rest?

You have to hand it to our list management team. No one else in the AFL is able to lock as many blokes away on a Monday morning as Fremantle.

Ditto Gumnut - SK first pick + Blake Acres.
And we keep our first pick. Thus at least two top ten picks.
I'm off the Kelly train for a lot of reasons. First and foremost he obviously does not want to come to Freo.

Yeah, Shane, especially after a bad loss.

I reckon there must be a guy with a clipboard stationed outside the rehab facility at Cockburn who says “sign here, or we won’t ever let you out”

I just hope that they have been feeding Pearce something that increases his bone density to a level that is slightly stronger than a chicken drumstick.

If STK are flashing moola around to lure BH, then WTF. Surely Freo are in the box seat to direct BH to whatever Victorian club that gives Freo the best deal. Not BH.
This is outrageous.

How about we just keep Hill who is a good player with 2 years left on his contract?

Does this take him through to restricted free agent. Seems to be a pretty standard signing for most players. Come out of contract the year you become eligible, leaving you in the best position to dictate your own future.
