Not if GC get a deal done with another club...
O'Meara has to agree to any trade that GC does so if he wants to come to us he can just refuse any deals.
Can he? He is not a free agent that can pick and choose...also, efc has a rep for being notoriously difficult to negotiate with...would not help with any future trades to be certain and I am sure the club will try to get something done...
Players can refuse trades.

Fair enough... I didn't think a player had that option if a trade was done...
I thought they either played for the club they are traded to or sat out the year...

If that was the case we would have traded Ryder to GWS who offered us pick 4 for him. He refused to go.

Very true. Bartel dodged a bullet there.

That's a bit harsh for a bloke on one leg. It's a long walk from Gold Coast to Melbourne.

O'Meara might be a good player but his serious knee injury makes any trade very questionable. Only played 2 years out of a possible 4, showed a lot of promise initially but his last 2 years have been ruined by this potentially career threatening injury.

Buyer beware, especially when it's rumoured he wants $700000. per season.

I surely would not be giving up our No.1 pick for him.

I'd only take him if he was available in PSD, but not on $700k.

We spend millions on shit lawyers. Pay millions to coaches to not coach. 700K for a gun player is chicken feed. Well worth the risk in my book.

none of that money goes toward the salary cap, so who cares.

people around here act like we have no cap.

we still have to re-sign guys like jd and merret etc. if they see omeara at this stage getting 700k what do you think they will want. reminds me of tom boyd and the dogs.

700k for a kid that hasn't played for 2 years is way overs...even one as talented as he is...
500k max with incentives to increase the next contract if he can stay on deck...

If we have the space, pay it.

People around here think we get gun players at bargain basement prices.

Put it this way, we'll have to offer him more than Hawthorn do. And if the Hawks can fit him in under their cap (with a list of multi premiership players), then I can't see how we can't.

We wouldn't have a hope in hell if we offer him $500k.

Maybe not, but as mentioned, he hasn't played for 2 years, has dodgy knees and can come via psd...

What's the PSD option got to do with how much we'll pay him?

Couldn't we contract him for $500K and get him a side-job as a TOLL environmental ambassador???

Why do I find myself going cold on O'Meara?

Is it perhaps because for the price, there are about a dozen damned good youngsters out there who may not offer the same upside but certainly don't come with the same downside.

Time to be smart and go with the percentage play. Draft wisely trade wiser.

Next year we'll be paying good coin to 10 or 11 guys who haven't played for a year and most of them are average or worse players.
