Adelaide claims that there’s no need to panic over the contract status of key midfield payers Rory Sloane and Patrick Dangerfield. Both of them will see their contracts expire at the conclusion of the 2015 AFL season and Dangerfield will be an eligible free agent. He’s been linked with Geelong by the Australian media while Sloane has let it be known that he’s hoping to stay with Adelaide for several more years. David Noble, the football manager of the Crows, said he’s happy with the discussions the club has had with both players up to now. Fans may want to back the Crows or somebody else this season after looking over the BetEasy AFL Odds.
Noble recently spoke with Crocmedia and said,
We are in constant dialogue with Rory’s manager and with Paddy’s, and we’re very comfortable with where we are at with both of those guys at the moment. We don’t see that there’s necessarily anything to panic about, we’re really comfortable, in that we’ve got a bunch of other guys coming out of contract as well.
The other Crows who are eligible for free agency at the end of the campaign are Andy Otten, Scott Thompson, Brent Reilly, Brodie Martin and Richard Douglas. Noble remarked that the club is hoping to keep this nucleus of players together for as long as possible and is looking forward to re-signing them all. With a strong player core, fans may want to check out the BetEasy AFL Odds this season and back Adelaide in a game or two.
Noble feels that keeping the current players together is a priority and the club can then tweak the lineup as it sees fit over the next couple of seasons. This is the fourth year of free agency in the league and Noble said he thinks clubs will eventually end up trading pending free agents in the future if the realize they won’t be able to hang onto them. He added that it’s a lot better to receive something in return rather than let a free agent walk away from the team for nothing once his contract is up.
With more and more players becoming free agents Noble stated that clubs will have to start negotiating contract extensions with them sooner rather than later to feel out the players’ future intentions.
