GEELONG’S EYE-WATERING CAMERON OFFER

The Cats, coming off their Grand Final loss, aren’t wasting any time in reshaping their roster as they look to go one better in 2021.

On the opening day they secured the services of Isaac Smith, but it’s the move to lure Jeremy Cameron that caught the eyeballs of the football community.

They never failed to hide their intentions of landing the 2019 Coleman Medallist throughout the finals series, but it’s the eye-watering offer that surprised many.

The Cats have offered Cameron a staggering $4.75 million over five-years, according to the Herald Sun’s Michael Warner.

A deal that would sit him close to Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield and have him in the highest paid players in the competition.

GWS can match Geelong’s offer and hold on to Cameron, however if they opt not to do so they will receive pick 12 in the AFL Draft.

BREAKOUT SUPERSTAR CAT ‘VERY GETTABLE’

Sam Menegola enjoyed the best season of his AFL career as he became one of the league’s top wingman in a year that saw him named to the All-Australian 40-man squad.

The 28-year-old was among Geelong’s best throughout the entirety of the season and helped the team reach the Grand Final.

With one year still to run on his contract, a report has emerged saying rival clubs are keeping close tabs on the star who is reportedly “very gettable”.

“Rival clubs monitoring Menegola’s contract situation. One year left on contract, wants a four-year extension,” The West Australian’s Ryan Daniels wrote.

The report says Menegola is chasing a long-term deal with a far greater salary than what he is currently on.

Originally from Western Australia, Menegola is reportedly open to returning home and joining the Fremantle Dockers. A team loaded with young star talent.

Essendon elected not to fight Joe Daniher’s trade request this time around with the star forward becoming a Brisbane Lions player at the end of the opening day’s action.

Daniher bid farewell to the Bombers as he officially looks to relaunch his career north of the border.

“The chance to play for Essendon is something I dreamt about and aspired to growing up,’’ he said.

“I’ve made lifelong friendships there and it has helped shape me as a person. I’m forever grateful to them and look forward to seeing them progress under Truck (Ben Rutten).

“The move to Brisbane is a new challenge I’m really looking forward to. I can’t wait to relocate to Queensland, get to work with my new teammates and coaches and build relationships across the club”.

The Bombers receive pick 7 in the AFL Draft as compensation for losing Daniher with the club hopeful of also adding pick 8 from Carlton in exchange for wantaway defender Adam Sadd. It would mean the Bombers enter the Draft holding three top 10 picks.
