    Re: Preseason Training 2022

    With the money that would free up if Tim wants to leave plus a decent pick for him I’d think we could land a good younger than Stef ruckman. Now we’ve got some tall firepower up forward, especially when Bruce is back towards second half of next year, I’m not so concerned. Hope he puts in a pearler of a season, we win the big one and then if he still wants to go so be it. The better he plays this year the more his worth on trade table. I’d prefer him to blossom and stay but out of the talls we have i would rather him go then say naughty or Marra.

    If Sweet becomes a good ruckman that would be sensational too and make us not as needy for a top notch ruck.

    You don't think the fact that he is home for an extend period and the fact his girlfriend is there as well increases his chances of make of making the decision to head back home a bit more of a chance?

    I'm not sure we get such a great pick for him if he were to leave but I hope you're right.

    I still think he can make it as a very good footballer and the sooner we get him signed the better from my perspective.

    I think you're over thinking it. BUT.

    Should it happen I'm not too fussed. I like Tim, he's a good player and a solid citizen but I don't think he will be the difference for us.

    Exactly this, I don't think we should stress too much about it right now.

    I think we need to concede that the situation with his partner makes him susceptible, but I don't see letting him stay in the west till after Christmas increases the risk.

    On the contrary, I feel that allowing some flexibility at least shows some personal care for his circumstance.

    Over thinking whether he is able to be visual through normal media or whether he has transcended to only being visual through Insta posts?
