I’M told Daniel Men­zel wants an unconditional con­tract at the Cats de­spite be­ing on full pay for a long time while mend­ing from mul­ti­ple in­juries. Now I think he’s a won­der­ful and very smart young bloke but wouldn’t you think you kind of owe your em­ploy­ers af­ter they’ve looked af­ter you so well? Thing is, Daniel has a lot of bar­gain­ing power right now and there are some se­ri­ous preda­tors keen to lure him away from Kar­dinia Park. The Cats want him to stay, of course, but only on a con­di­tional con­tract given his mul­ti­ple re­cos al­ready and the pos­si­bil­ity his knee could go again. I think that’s fair enough, footy is a busi­ness, af­ter all. But re­mem­ber, he hasn’t pro­duced a flag like a lot of re­tir­ing and re­cently re­tired Cats who worked for a lot less. Hmmm. I’ve also heard that Western Bull­dog Jake Stringer is head­ing Gee­long’s way. Oh yeah, and Gary Ablett Jr is still on the way, too. I’m hear­ing he’s likely to ac­cept a nom­i­nal amount for the trade. He’s miss­ing home.
