    Who would you have JMac target this year?

    We have salary cap banked, and sooner or later an increased salary cap with a new EBA. Imagining that the trade currency and spare salary cap we would've used on Hurley is still around, who would have Jason McCartney chasing hard?

    Here is the smorgasbord of uncontracted 2017 players:

    Josh Kelly would be a great get, but GWS trading him is not something they're going to want to do.

    First two that come to mind are Fyfe and Shiel, both are long shots and knowing a few of Shiels relo's and they say he is pretty entrenched at GWS.
    Tom Barrass would be a decent pick up and ready made replacement if we lose Adams.

They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali

    So Adams & Barass swap clubs if Adams requests a trade to WCE.

    Re: Who would you have JMac target this year?

    I read or saw somewhere only this morning that Josh Kelly is about to recommit to GWS. He's happy there and isn't interested in playing for a proper footy club.

    Would be happy if this was the outcome.

    Locking away all our guns would be a good starting point.

    The thread has another assumption that we've signed up everyone we want to.

    Didn't he and The Bont holiday together over Summer?
    I'm sure Bonty has been in his ear about coming to play for a real club with recent Premiership sucess and a rich history of suburban roots?
    If he wants to keep playing for The Plastic Fruit Bowl Oranges then stuff him!!

    Precisely. I know there's money and the prospect of playing in a gun team and that but I just don't know why you'd choose to play for GWS over doing all that at a real club. Whether it's us or one of the other clubs with a history and a culture. That you meet legends of the club from. That have a supporter base.

    I don't see how you'd stand out on the field after the prelim thinking that playing for GWS any acheivment is just going to be incremental and expected. Not celebrated and lionised. Surely some of them thought "get me to St Kilda or Melbourne, I want a chance at some of this"

    Love this, I'm gonna refer to them as plastic fruit bowl oranges too. Thanks Redders.

    I despise quite a few GWS players, however I think Lobbe is/will be a gun and admire his overcoming a tough teenage/young adult period. Would be delightful if we could prize him free and would actually prefer him over their much vaunted midfielders. Also agree re-signing our young guns is first priority and confident our club is doing all it can to extend this amazing successful time.
