    The Chad Thread

    I'm finding as the media ramps us between word of our club and The Chad maybe hooking up, there's a fair bit to follow over several threads, and it's drowning out the general other trading topics inwards or outgoing. So if it's alright with everyone, perhaps he's a serious enough topic (& a big enough topic) to dedicate a thread to. Leaving the others general.

    If so, my thoughts today have changed a little bit. With outlets reporting that (essentially) Port have said he's not worth what we would offer, so explore the market... Now it's a big 'if'... If Wingard picks us then I think the trade worth is brought into question, which is where my thinking has changed.

    Wingard to me was worth pick 6, and maybe some steak knives, nothing coming back. But if it's the case that Port won't match any free agency offers next year at our alleged dollars, then Port's hand is a little weakened. He can go this year for a fair trade, or next year for whatever the AFEL determine the compo at and where they finish. Much like how Tom Boyd under contract said he was leaving GWS in 2014 under contract to the dogs, or in 2015 to the dogs for nothing (owing to the money, via PSD). If we know Port Adelaide won't pay $800,000 this year or next, and he determines he wants to come to Whitten Oval, then maybe we can drop the steak knives off the trade and/or maybe ask for a fourth to fifth rounder swap to get us draft points back. There's no point in overly low balling them, if he picks us, but knowing they won't pay him this year or next to the level we will, that puts a realistic veil over any talks. He's all but assured not to be there between now and 12 months, the media have made sure the Dogs & Hawks know it too. Maybe we could get a really good trade out of it. If this media reporting is correct, I think the trade capital we need to put up is just that bit lesser.

    But first things first, get Jackson to get The Chad to make a public announcement picking us and hope the former top tier law firm lawyer, Sam Power, with the insight of a former very good traded, Ameet Bains, can get us a good deal.

    About time Chad got his thread!

    Pick 6 is a good trade for Wingard seeing that Port would have to be interested in some of the SA talent early in this years draft. But what if we want to keep pick 6. Could we throw up a player like Williams (South Australian) and a future pick. I rate Williams, I think he'll blossom next season and could be temping for Port. I'm just spit balling here, I'd hate to lose Williams.
    They've done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time!

    Chad liked Mitch’s new contract.

    Let's just say that it's 'a' Chad Wingard.

    So given Bevo's love of playing the new guys in suprise positions in their first few games I wonder how the Chad will enjoy playing in the back pocket for the first half of next season?

    He'll have a hard time getting to the back pocket after taking the centre bounce.

    Also liked Reds retirement video. I mean footy players like all players content but we can hope

    Maybe we should wait before getting excited.

    I agree. I think we should all chill out a bit.

    Re: The Chad Thread

    There are some warning bells ringing for me with this focus on Wingard.
    Based on his form over the last two years though is he really worth 800K plus over a 5 or 6 year deal and pick 6 or 7 in the draft?
    If money is his primary focus then that concerns me.

    FWIW, I'd want something else back for Wingard than what is being proposed

    I'm a bit with you. I'd welcome him at the club, but with those kind of dollars I'd rather try to get Shiel.

    I think he's worth every penny but that's not my concern. There is a lot of hysteria going on at the moment and I think a few supporters are getting a bit carried away. We face opposition from the Hawks & Saints and of course Port don't have to trade him at all. So it's a long way from being done and I can't hear a fat lady singing, yet.
