    Surely that is a job for his mum.

    Ideally Smith needs to become the face of our junior supporters programme meaning we could pay him something outside of the cap but there are some opportunities with sponsors that you point out.

    Hawthorn, Essendon, Collingwood, Gold Coast, Sydney would all offer big dollars. Maybe even Geelong with the Cotton On thing.

    His marketing pull (he's already on nearly every AFL ad) and membership potential is through the roof. He will make non-Bulldog boys and girls support the Bulldogs. He's worth it.

    For what its worth I also agree his signature is worth it.

    They only club I see Smith leaving us for is Sydney. A lot of cap space and marketing $ will be vacant once Franklin goes.

    Plus as alluded to earlier; he will be out of the melbourne bubble.

    Good call.

    Weirdly enough I'm pretty at peace with the Bailey Smith situation. I feel like there's no risk of him not staying.

    Me too. I expect him to sign.

    I think he and Beveridge are kindred spirts of sorts

    I'm saying you need to change the thread back to its original "Trade Dunkley", because that's what we'll be talking about in a few months time.
    Just call me Ponyboy.
