Aren't they still paying out some of Treloar's contract and maybe Stephenson's?

How did that Redgum song go...

Poor Ned, you're better off dead
At least you'll get some peace of mind
You're out on the track
They're right on your back
Boy they're 'gonna hang you high...

What would have been a better approach would have been to move on Grundy. Clubs would pay 80% of his contract per annum over the term. That still saves you 600k a year, approx. Big loss, great player. But if you are giving me a choice between three of your best 10 and Grundy, geez.....

An d you'd get draft value for Grundy. You can always sort out those picks for Daicos later down the line and in fact if you look at their draft position they still haven't achieved that.

You might be right Hypen, but Grundy won the Copeland in 2018 and 2019. It's just not realistic to have moved him on in those years.

The right play from a list management perspective was probably to let Treloar or Stephenson walk, and instead of paying his salary gather some picks from the team that grabbed him (or at least called his bluff). But in Stephenson's case it's worth remembering how people responded on here when Sumich made the same argument about Cerra.

The more stuff ups by Collingwood or any other club other than us the better. Keep giving off good players for nothing maggies. I dont mind. Any decent west aussies you can send our way on the cheep. ;)

Does Freo have a tight salary cap? If so, we must be paying Fyfe a truck load ... otherwise who else is sucking up the big ones?

I don't know WTB, but this article suggests we're up against the cap.

I don't know who's on what, but if we're going to stick with any injury plagued players who are on big money, surely changes are needed there.

Thanks Morgan.
If that is anywhere near correct we will have some trouble keeping our youngsters. We know Geelong will come after Darcy, and Cerra keeps on being mentioned as a likely mover. Interested times!

And the truck is a quad with a special length permit from Main Roads.

Others may be able to confirm, but I recall that clubs needed to pay a certain percentage of the cap no matter how terrible they were. It's possible that we're up against the cap because we front-loaded some contracts during the lean years, with a declining scale to allow other players to re-sign over the next few years when we are hopefully playing finals.

From the outside it only looks like there are a couple of albatross contracts for next year and beyond: Blakely until 2022, and Hamling until 2023.

Cerra and Tucker are the biggest flight risks at the end of the season based on their contracts.
