Crows yet to re-sign duo
ADELAIDE has failed to secure emerging stars Patrick Dangerfield and Kurt Tippett in its latest burst of re-signings.
Crows coach Brenton Sanderson said the club would be shattered to lose the pair, who are attracting strong interest from rival clubs.
Dangerfield has reportedly been a target of Geelong and Essendon for a return to his home state, while Greater Western Sydney coach Kevin Sheedy said last week that Tippett, 24, would become as damaging a player as Essendon great Paul Salmon.
''We'd love to keep them both. If they both left, it would be shattering for the footy club,'' Sanderson said.
Nevertheless, Sanderson has a glimmer of hope, despite saying he won't meddle in contract negotiations.
''All I can provide is an environment that the boys enjoy. I think we are seeing that with Kurt and also 'Danger' at the moment. The boys are enjoying their footy - they're in good form.'' With AAP
