    We also lose Picken's contract after this year and perhaps Morris. Wood is also on very good coin (signed as 2016 premiership captain and 2015 AA year) so we lose that shortly too.
    English contract expires 2020. But as you suggest we need to extend him this year.

    Tom Browne reporting we are into Tomlinson with the spare cash. Would suit our needs.

    I remember Gary being into him a fews years ago I wonder if he still feels the same about him and how he might fit!
    One of the great moments in life is the sense of space and time you feel between taking a hanger and touching back down.

    I think he would be a good enough defender for us. He's being talked about as a forward which is a bit of a change but probably right up Bevo's alley.

    A mobile runner who can play anywhere, the only way he could get more Bevo is if he changed his first name to Bailey.

    Brilliant. if we were to land him he will be interchanging with Tim English on a wing.

    Id play him as a key back - he seems to me to have got better as a key defender - found a settled position

    Its likely they might want to move him on in terms of pay roll - I'd ask them for a pick as well to take him off their salary cap so they can re-sign Coniglio

    Tomlinson is a free agent, they will be getting a pick, not us. They cleared a lot of cap space last year through Shiel and Scully so I'm not sure their cap is that tight, although we would be able to offer him more.

    I think that Gary might have been kidding with his call to swap Tomlinson and English on a wing.

    Bevo loves variety and payers that play more than one position but that might be too varied!!!!!!
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Yep but if we were to pick-up someone like Tomlinson based on his form as a defender it's highly likely that Bevo will play him in another position. In fairness to Bevo sometimes it works.

    We may laugh at some of the moves and positions of players, but the way I see it, Bevo is trying to plug holes because we don't have the players to cover all the roles we want.

    A combination of factors over the years, mainly injury, but also lack of goal kickers, talls slow to develop etc
