Nice resigning so far

Negotiations are continuing to extend the contract of James Aish who is contracted till 2015 anyway.

Only Jack Crisp and Matt Maguire remain unsigned for this year. Maguire has been on single year contracts since arriving at Brisbane and Crisp is a required player according to Dean Warren so expect he will re-sign as well.

Awesome stuff Ringo, thanks for that :)

Good to see how many young kids have re-signed already! Expect all 3 of Aish, Crisp, and Goose to re-sign very soon

Crisp should request a trade if he isn't going to get regular games Saints or Melbourne would want him

Goose wanted in the back line or forward line though??

Hopefully he gets another year but dont see he body going further than that
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on September 16, 2014, 02:24:45 PM
Definitely back line Tabs he is a worse set shot than Sauce.

Moose will get another year contract as well.
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.

Who is Moose?? Do you mean Goose?

Surely his leg issues only see Goose get one more year and thats it??
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on September 16, 2014, 03:27:06 PM
Of Course Goose - Both Sauce and Goose are going under the knife in off season. Of course Goose is a year to year proposition though.

Reminds me of this from midway through last year.

A little surprised we did not recall Moose.  Had a solid game in 2's last week but maybe needs a little more time in 2's
You mean Goose?

Perhaps Goose would have had to play on Moose this week? (IDK who Moose is)

Old habits die hard went to school with a kid called Michael Maguire and he had the nickname of Moose.  Just an explanation for you.

Crisp the only Lion still unsigned

Jonas is the only Power player from Norwood and he was rookie drafted (obviously not in high demand at the time of his selection - not like the potential demand for Aish). I didn't think the rivalry was that serious  :o

Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on November 12, 2014, 07:02:54 PM
Personally I reckon he will re-sign with us sooner rather than later due to the friendships formed with the 7 draftees taken in last year.

To be fair Brisbane has effectively done 2 years drafting with last years draft picks all working out OK and this years draft.

This will look good in any team Aish, Taylor, Gardiner, McStay, Freeman, Cutler, Nick Robertson who have all games during the season and then adding Beams, Christensen and Robinson is a pretty sound return imo.

Hopefully another Rockliff or Black will slip to 67 our first live pick.

Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: powersuperkents on November 12, 2014, 07:48:42 PM
Yeah I agree, I'd say I'm 99% certain Aish will stay. Normally it is obvious when a player wants to leave (or there is an evident lack of opportunities). Aish doesn't look upset and he plays just about every game. No reason to leave, but the contract delays raise suspicion. But that's probably because it'll take a little longer to negotiate the contract value (he deserves higher pay than the other rookies - also he needs to be paid more or he will suspect that he's being overlooked due to the Beams, Christensen & Robinson inclusion). He'll resign soon, when Brisbane offer him the right price. 

If I had to bet, I'd confidently bet that he'll extend his contract. Too much trouble to move if a player doesn't have a good reason

Don't really know how exactly he is overrated hahaha

I think he is regarded as he should be hahaha (didn't even make Port's top 10 in the B&F - if he was overrated he would have)

He's higher regarded (and so far better) than Yeo, Docherty & Longer and was the highest profile transfer out of the homesick 5. So of course he would get more attention. I think at the most people just regard him as a prospect who has proven his legitimacy so far  :)

No objection from me to that statement. Polec is starting to realise the potential he has and will be interesting to monitor his performance next season. Polec was not given a fair go by Voss and I really blame him for some of the go home boys.

Who says that? IMO Docherty and Yeo are better, and Longer, being a ruckman, still hasn't full developed, but will be a better player in the future.

No objection from me to that statement. Polec is starting to realise the potential he has and will be interesting to monitor his performance next season. Polec was not given a fair go by Voss and I really blame him for some of the go home boys.
But then again Voss did have the foresight to draft him. Yeah I agree about the limited opportunities he gave them, I think it's because he was coaching a team where a significant amount of players were his friends and former teammates (there's going to be a conflict of interest in those situations). He was a great coach, just didn't seem popular among board members. To be fair, Brisbane had a good list as well back then (despite what the ladder may project) - they always have a strong list, even this season where they were projected to finish last (along with the Saints) we see that these players which many people overlooked (surely everyone thought Rocky/Hanley/Redden/Zorko were fantasy guns and good players but nobody could predict the exact extent of the impact they had this season) - Martin is probably the best example of this, Luey has always been highly rated and West is a premiership ruck man, when those two weren't available we thought it was done yet Leppa created an equally, if not more, effective option through Martin. Leppa has had a fantastic year, again, despite the ladder position, there list is strong and is building up more talent. They have a great core team (will be one of the best in a few years). The problem is the players surrounding the core of the team aren't at the same level (for many it's just lack of experience and will not be a problem in the long-run) as the rest of the comp. The Crows have the same problem but I'd say Brisbane are better off, esp. because Leppa has seen this, and done the most logical thing a coach can do in this situation... Build the list. Christensen & Robinson will most likely be additions, Dayne will be part of the core. A very bright future ahead of the club - Again, I thought Leppa didn't have what it takes but he's been doing a fantastic job, very good coaching and he knows what the priorities should be.

Disagree slightly power - Voss was not the best coach very similar to Buckley great players but have found the transition to coach difficult. Voss did have his favourites (Why Polkinghorne kept getting games is beyond me) but he did not have the ability to react quickly to game day situations. Think Voss would have been a much better coach if he had follwed through on the Eagles assistant coach role and came back to coach after 2/3 years. Believe his new role at Power will further develop him.

Yeah very good point - compare Voss, Buckley, & Hird to seasoned coaches there is a huge discrepancy. Leppa has cleaned up a lot of the auxiliary players that were not at AFL standard (e.g. Polky, Raines, Michael etc.), he has the right mindset and I think if Brown & McGrath had not retired this season he would have done the difficult task of delisting them next season. Although Brown was a legend of the game, Leppa would be capable of making the difficult calls. Voss couldn't - to emotionally attached, Leppa has the right mindset.

Great to see these youngsters although Beams is 23 committing.  The start of those whose contracts expire this year.

OP is updated and i will keep updated as contracts are extended.

Aish is the big one this year and we wait his decision.  Berger and Adcock are Free agents but can see them re-signing with the club. .

Collingwood, Carlton and Melbourne are the three clubs that have shown the most interest in securing Brisbane's James Aish according to the Herald Sun.

The No. 7 selection from the 2013 national draft has given no indication he wants to stay at the Lions, rebuffing contract talks with the Lions.

Aish is a client of Liam Pickering, So anything could happen.

He's going, he isn't even getting good opportunities anymore in a side that is losing - and has a lot of its midfielders injured. If those two events are occurring and you're playing a tentative player in the NEAFL, he will leave. Didn't look like he was enjoying round 1 either. Personally, I think the Crows should be making the play for him because he most likely wants to return to his home state and not Victoria. Richmond & Essendon should make plays for him as well as he could play a big part in elevating either of those teams to a top 4 level. My bet would be 5% he stays as of now - still only two rounds through the season and that could change, but if I were Leppa I'd be managing him differently.

If he really wants to leave, it's for the best though. If that were the case and Brisbane somehow convinced him to resign, what would be the point..

He was shower in round 1, got dropped, did well in NEAFL, came back into 22. So that isn't really a valid comment.
If he does want to leave though, and is happy to go to Melbourne, then there's now way we'd be letting him go cheaply. First rounder + extra, depending on the club getting him
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on April 17, 2015, 11:38:46 AM
Was dropped on form as GL says and now reinstated.

The one thing to remember is Pickering is his manager and we all know he chases the dollars for his players so not confident of retaining him but trusting Aish does the right thing by the club that invested so much into him.  He is wanted by the club in that the club started negotitaions in September last year to try and tie up all the previous years draftees.  Aish is the only one not signed.  Hopefully also his strong friendship with Sam Mayes has someinfluence as well.

If he goes as GL says we would be wanting fair compensation for him.  Either a first round pick plus or a tall marking forward. Unlike the previous go home boys situation we are in a better bargaining position.

Good on them, there was no chance that he was staying (it's just the risk with drafting interstate), esp. with Beams, Christo, & Robbo all coming in. The sooner the rest of the Lions coaching staff become aware of this, the sooner they can focus on matters of importance. Brisbane fans seem to think Aish's resigning as a matter of pride... You recruited Collingwood's 2nd best player, there is no pride lost if a rookie departs, certainly considering that in two years prior there were 5 players comparable to Aish departing & no-one of value coming in.

Good on Swann for stating the obvious and cutting through the shower. There is no real reason for Aish to stay, if he wants to resign, then it's at his discretion. If not, Brisbane won't even notice because they will be more focused on pressing issues (like the game against WCE this weekend)

What do you think will happen to our expiring contracted players.

James Aish returning from injury - Suspect he will ask to be traded.
Jed Adcock - Should re-sign
Rohan Bewick - A required player who should re-sign but a trade request would not surprise,
Mitch Golby - Given that he is unable to cement a place in the 22 he may also request a trade.
Ryan Harwood - Would be a required player and suspect he will re-sign but like Bewick a trade request would not surprise.
Berger - Probably playing for his career in the second half of the season and if does not come up may be trade bait. Trent West returning may also put pressure on
Matt Maguire - has retired
Brent Staker - Has been effected by injury over the last three seasons. A difficult one here as we know what he can do.
Paine and McGuane have both been injured.  Paine is promising and may get a contract renewal but would be reluctant with McGuane.

My bet is the Lions will get a good deal for Aish.

Adcock is like Sandi, Pav etc. he is either retiring or staying (still too young to retire)

Bewick should stay, if he were to request a trade it would be back to WA (good luck getting a game in either of those teams - career suicide). Golby will probably be in the same position as Bewick (could trade them with Carlton to get a bargain gun).

Berger will stay if he gets the chance - least of Brisbane's concerns now that Martin is replicating last seasons form (there were doubts but I think he's proven he is a genuine first class ruck)

I think Staker will do the right thing by the club and retire (his injuries are becoming a financial burden and at 31 he doesn't have much to offer)

Paine should stay.

McGuane is a spud hahahaha Leppa needs to cut him and state that it is not personal (apparently the two are very close).

Taking most of these players out of the equation, I think Brisbane has a really strong list (would probably steal a few games against the Victorian clubs if they weren't disadvantaged by constant travel - like 7 other teams in the AFL (starting to think that was a reason for the expansion clubs - 2 weeks less travel for all interstate sides)

Okay Leppa, like every other coach, has lost credibility with me when saying "this player will stay"  :P

It seems every coach says it, but only 10% of the time the player actually stays

Personally, I think Brisbane are better off this way and they at least get something in return if they trade this 'gloryhunter' (I don't see any other reason why WCE would be his preferred destination than glory hunting)

Cannot believe it but it is looking more likely by the day that Aish will be staying. I thought he would definitely leaving since midway through last season. The problem is that he wants to go to Collingwood, however there are no guarantees as they are prioritising with Treloar.

I think Richmond now look the greatest threat. However, they are prioritising with Yarran & Bennell.

Starting to look like he'll have to stay - if he extends his contract by more than 2 seasons, I don't see him ever leaving the Lions - they should offer him 3-5 years

Post by: powersuperkents on September 30, 2015, 09:02:58 PM
I would say Aish is over 95% likely to stay.

The likely loss of Redden has obviously made the Lion's board realise they don't have time for this kid (is still yet to make a decision) and he's becoming an inconvenience.

The reported ultimatum is resign or go back to the draft (it's tough because it looks like no Victorian teams are interested in the kid) and the Hawks have stated they won't be major players in this year's trading period.

It would be prudent for him to resign at this point - doesn't want to end up like Henderson

However, I think Rich will remain a Lion beyond 2016 and would not be surprised if he re-signed in the near future

Yes and no. I don't think having them all is a necessity, but I'd much rather have them than not have them. I think we want them all for different reasons. Bundy has more experience than most others in the team, I think Zorkos in the leadership group, Greens been up the top of the goal kicking at the club for the past couple of seasons, although that probably says more about the team than Green :P, and Squizzy will be one of the best in the competition in the next couple of years.

I'd much rather have them all than not.
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on December 07, 2015, 09:39:02 PM
Remember though when Carlton were at their peak they had a fleet of smalls as well. Our problem is that thgere has been no real tall forward bringing the ball to ground for them to work their magic.  Taylor looks good going down the wing.  Green will always have the speed and an accurate kick (although he can have an off day). Zorko and Christensen both provide relief through the mids as well.

Interesting idea though brodman and I am glad I am not on the selection committee having to decide on team balance.  Think a lot of selections this year may come down to the opposition.

and this one not unsurprisingly only maybe the length of contract being 4 years.  Zorko a Lion for life.

This will give you an indication of our youth at the moment as well

"Zorko, who dominated the local Queensland competition playing for Broadbeach in the QAFL before being picked up in the 2011 National Draft, is now the fifth-oldest player on the Lions’ young list (behind Daniel Merrett, Martin, Trent West and Hanley)." 

So Zorko at 27 is the 5th oldest on the list.

Personally I think Leppa has done alright so far, there was nothing he could do last year when we got absolutely massacred by injuries, but will need some improvement over the next 2 years now, particularly reducing those late quarter fade outs.
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on March 07, 2016, 08:58:18 PM
Think we needed to extend Leppas contract to give certainty going forward and with the number coming off contract this year as well.  The number of changes to the coaching staff as well needed the stability as well.

You have hit the nail on the head with the improvement in fade outs in red zones of each quarter.  So basically 2017 will be Leppas make or break year.

Rumour has it that Rich will be re-signed in the near future as well.

Post by: powersuperkents on June 10, 2016, 11:39:23 PM
One question...

Why does Leppa keep playing Mayes down back when his preferred position is as a wingman/half-forward

It worked for Paparone

However, for a top 10 draft pick like Mayes, it's the sort of decision that would make him want to seek opportunities else where.

It's coming to a point where I think whether he will leave or stay depends on whether or not Leppa plays him in his preferred position

Surely if it's frustrating me, it must be 100x more frustrating for Lions' fans...
Title: Re: Brisbane Player Re-signings.
Post by: Ringo on June 11, 2016, 08:08:07 AM
Injuries in our defence may have forced the issue and must admit he has been playing well in the last 3 weeks.  Paparone is returning in the NEAFL this week so will be interesting to see what Leppa does when he is recalled.

Lester also close to return which will also restrict H/f option for him. Despite our position on ladder we have so many of theses 22 - 25 yo old players vying for positions.  My one gripe with Leppa is he still does not want to drop Senior players. IMO Rich could do with a stint in the NEAFL to shake him up a bit. Would create opportunities for other players. With both Gardiner and Andrews back he should also take the opportunity to drop Merrett, My opinion though,

Despite on field performances great to see these two commit for a further 2 years - Cutler to 2019 and Berry locked away till 2020 after just after 5 games.

Not really Toga he said he would let Lions know over their bye period. Thought he may have gone though but great that he is staying. perhaps now he can get working on a partnership with Hipwood to become the next super goal kicking duo.

Press release concerning the re-signing

All signs pointed to him leaving Ringo, there wasn't a lot of word in the media that he might recommit. Good result for the Lions, would've been back to square one to lose yet another highly rated youngster.

Would have depended on contract offered as well but could not see any thing other than a mid first rounder at best. Now to start working on that partnership with Hipwood to become the next Brown/Bradshaw.

Yet another re-signing.  Future looking good.

Some sites showing we only signed McInerney for 12 months. So hopefully we re-sign him quickly as I think he is an outstanding prospect.

Here is the list according to my research of unsigned players:
Claye Beams
Jarrad Jansen
Josh Clayton
Jonathan Freeman
Matthew Hammelman
Michael Close
Ryan Harwood
Tom Rockliff

Rockliff and Close really the only 2 I really want to see re-signed.

Archie Smith, Jacob Allison, Oscar McInerney have extended for 2 years.
Corey Lyons, Matt Eagles, Jake Barrett and Mitchell Hinge have extended for 12 months.

Now to concentrate on McCluggage and Witherden who will be essential for us to climb ladder

Just read that RD thank You. Both will be rookies though I suspect otherwise why de-list Beams in the first place. Probably need to clarify whether Hanley will still be a cat B rookie. Eagles has been retained as a Cat B rookie.

Don't play supercoach so probably can't give an accurate answer. Won't be fantasy relevant for another year or 2, but I'd imagine he'll be a very solid option one day.

Although welcome thoughts on the value of contract. Nearly $500k a season at 20 sight unseen at present is a bit over the top. 

Hopefully does not cut down the amount of money we have to re-sign Witherden.

That is a lot of coin for an untried talent but 1.2 over 4 years sounds a lot better might even up being quite a bargain

Bundy has extended his contract by 12 months to 2019.

These are the list of players whose contracts expire this year and still unsigned.
Jake Barrett
Claye Beams
Tom Bell
Rohan Bewick
Charlie Cameron
Liam Dawson
Matt Eagles
Mitchell Hinge
Luke Hodge
Ryan Lester
Marco Paparone
Mitch Robinson
Joshua Walker

Who on the list are still priorities ?- Would say Robbo and Charlie deserve extensions, Hodge if he feels his body still has it for another year guiding down back.
Of the others maybe Eagles, Paparone, Lester (because coach loves him but do not know why) and Dawson (who has not had a good run due to injury) could get an extension.
Would delist the rest thoughts?
