Star ruckman Max Gawn has re-signed with the Melbourne Demons for a further four years, saying he would be stupid to leave the AFL club now.
Gawn had the option of testing the free-agency market with his previous contract due to expire at the end of this year.
But the 29-year-old captain predicts the Demons are on the verge of something special, and he does not want to miss out.
“I’ve got a fair bit of faith in where the club’s going,” Gawn told Melbourne’s website.
“We’ve got some really good, elite players now in the competition, and that, mirrored with some really good young talent … it’s a really good mix.
“It makes me really excited to be a part of this club for the next few years to hopefully achieve something great.
