    Awesome news, the one signature I wanted more than any this year !! (And I love the way the Bulldogs announced it on social media with the Homer vid)

    I’m hoping we can retain both but if hypothetically we can only keep one of Mullet Man or Dunks who would you choose? I’m torn but if I had to choose (with fantastic recent form of West, whom I hope we re-sign soon, in F50 and we know he can be a good midfielder too & with Garcia looking promising as an inside mid) I think I’d keep Smith. So difficult.

    Re: Player Contract Status

    Smith - we don’t speak about his upside enough because of how good he is already but he could be the best player in the AFL.

    Plus he’s maybe already better than Dunkley?

    Smith, easily. Breaks the lines, has speed, and far more upside than Dunkley.

    Only from an upside basis but Smith hasn't peaked yet.

    Even if it flipped the other way, Dunks is a proven performer so not a lot of difference in the short term.

    Interested to hear Comrades thoughts.

    Ok, so when the 2 years for English expire does that put him in the Free Agent camp? Sounds like a short contract and shop kind of deal.

    All players have done that. They are not giving up their free agent status. Bont did it. Cripps did it. They would be silly to give that away.

    This. Tim will be backing himself to be the best ruckman in the AFL in 2 years and if he achieves that will be handsomely rewarded wherever he plays. In his position he would have been crazy to sign for longer.

    Dunks is still only 25 years old. You don't get rid of players that age and what he has achieved to date
