    Surely they trade him out until he matures to fit their age profile.

    Of course he will remember how great it is in Geelong and want to return when he is 30.

    If true, hope it does not set an example where someone threaten's to break a contract to hold the Club to ransom. What would stop Smith, Naughton and others doing likewise?

    This is what pisses me off most, if the club is so scared to lose him just say NO, don't go and throw more money at him mid-contract.

    With all due respect I would place a "Known insider at the Dogs" from Bigfooty on about the same credibility rung as Ricky Nixon.

    I put them pretty much equal to the majority of AFL media at this time of year, aka, might know, might not, who knows.

    Couldn't agree with this more.

    I'd be annoyed if we bent over backwards to retain Josh (who I like a lot but think we can "afford" to lose") only for others to take advantage of a set precedent.

    Particularly when he only recently signed his contract which he must have been happy with.

    Likewise, what's stopping rivals lobbing ambit claims thinking; if we get him, great, if we don't, we just squeezed their payroll a little more.

    It does sometimes feel like we’re the only club with a salary cap.

    I reckon Collingwood might have one, GWS as well.

    Re: Trade Dunkley

    So if the speculation is correct, and I'm not sure that it is, that we've won Dunkley over because of a revised contract offer we might be creating some trouble for ourselves. Have we just handed a blueprint to other quality players and their managers on how we can be inspired to revise contracts?

    I guess it depends on how we've structure things. Maybe if he's extended another 3 years we've some room to move.

    Exactly. Why extend him? He's got 2 years left for goodness sake! I really hope this isn't true, like you said another player sees this who is under contract and says "What about me?" Hold him to his contract or trade him.
