Rumour going around that Beams amassed a large gambling debt up north ($1.5m), and was bailed out by a wealthy benefactor... Let's call him E. McGuire. No, too obvious... let's call him Eddie M. This apparently played a large part in Beams' defection back to the Pies. Escanadalo!

This is entirely based on a text message though so could be complete BS like so many others turn out to be.

Hmmm I wonder if that's been included in their salary cap

Interesting then that the whispers section in the Hun intimated that a player with gambling debts had a posse of bikies turn up at this player's club training recently...

This is a very valid question to ask. Hope the AFL is investigating this rumour to see if there's any basis to it.

They would hide it even if there was something in it. They are as corrupt as Eddie.

They gave away 2 first rounders for a bloke with bad hips.
Current draft position, first pick at pick 34
Not sure I would class that good list management. They already have Wells, now Beams can join him

They aren't playing better then last year.
Beams was always going to cause them issues. It hasnt reached the half way of the season and already the injuries are mounting up. Adams was to return last week and now is out for another 3, Degoey still having issues with his legs.
If they loose Grundy they will tumble out of the 8.
