MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 12: Ty Vickery of the Tigers kicks the ball during the 2016 AFL Round 12 match between the Richmond Tigers and the Gold Coast Suns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on June 12, 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

REPORTS: Reigning premiers offer Vickery long-term deal

Three-time reigning premier Hawthorn, has reportedly offered Richmond big man Ty Vickery, a long-term deal, according to the Herald Sun.

The Hawks’ offer could be as long as three years, as Vickery seeks a fresh start after becoming “fed-up with being made a scapegoat for Richmond’s problems”, the reports says.

Vickery has reportedly met with Hawthorn officials multiple times and the Hawks have laid out an attractive offer to the 26-year-old.

The Hawks are said to have told Vickery they can make him a better and believe he can also help improve their team.

Geelong is also understood to be interested in Vickery, with talls Nathan Vardy and Shane Kersten likely toย look elsewhere for greater opportunity.

Vickery, who is a restricted free agent, has spent eight seasons at Punt Road, playing 119 games and kicking 158 goals. He was the No.8 pick in the 2008 National Draft.

    Ahhh boys look who’s in the running for shit vick all of a sudden! Surely he will choose Hawks over blues ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜›

  2. Hawthorn really don’t get it wrong very often. Much maligned at Richmond but I always liked him as a player. Just didn’t do enough but that can be said of most Richmond players. Wouldn’t surprise if he finds his feet at Hawthorn. In much better company and probably needs that to elevate to next level.

  3. Lazy player of the ball, second efforts are not there. Like him as a contested mark and goal kicker but forwards need to be more than that these days, he is slow, still if he goes I wish him all the best and hope he works hard to keep his career on track.

  4. I dont ever pray but I am making an exception at the moment – please please Hawthorn please take this spud. I have so many Hawks supporters that have given me so much grief over this useless dud this would make my century if he went to Hawthorn. I am sure you guys will welcome him with open arms – Deryl Dowling, Cameron Wilson, Cam Leverett Blake Tony Schmidt

  5. Mmmm all you doubters.. heard these similar comments about these guys (hacks hasbeens too old too slow good riddance).. Dunston, Lake, Burgoyne, Gibson, Spangher, Puopolo, Hale, McEvoy, Frawley, Ceglar, Simpkin, Dew, Gilham and Croad…. Mmmm … GO HAWKS…

    • It’s Gunston, not Dunston, and no, the players you listed for the most part were quality players from their former clubs who were after success. Not high draft picks who have under performed unbelievably bad. The only reason Vickery got drafted in the first place is because dear daddy is a coach there.
