Yeah, this is basically how I see it being contracted. Basically a nice 100k pay bump each season without breaking the bank the first year.
Older players are always going to be victims of salary cap increases making it look like younger players are earning more than they should comparatively, but it was the same for them early in their careers too (mostly).
Mam gets so many wraps from Joey Johns and Freddy Fitler that Sydney Clubs would definitely be chasing him on their hype.
I personally think Mam is good, but not as great as he is made to look in this team of fit young guys being led by a genius half. But for that he is also lucky, and best placed to take advantage of some prime training.
His kicking game needs a lot of work. His pass selection too. He's nowhere near Cody Walker in terms of setting plays down the left edge. But his support plays and defensive efforts, speed and fitness are all excellent for his age, and he compliments the team very well.
The real problem will be getting his game control to the next level so he can balance Madden, or whoever's going to replace Reynolds.
Fortunately, Walsh can often run those left edge plays too.
I think Ezra is under orders to keep it simple .
Focus on defence and support this season . Which he has done very well at .
Judging by his junior highlights reels .
He has all the play makers tricks . Long and short passes and can kick with either foot .
This season was about avoiding the 2nd year blues . I think the next cpl of seasons we will see him bloom .
