I think GWS gave the Bulldogs a lesson on how to get a deal done. Made the Bulldogs look pretty stupid actually

Bombers have done disgustingly well.
depends on If Stringer can get his **** together and how long he can keep it together. Markets generally don't lie. Such a cheap price for such a good player says big risk.

Dodoro drives a very hard bargain. Bombers have set themselves up for top 4.
As good as they have done, they still need inside ball winners & lose Watson. jury is out on Smith as a mid (tank?) Saad wouldn't know a hard ball if he saw one & Stringer can't play full time mid (tank).
they conceeded the most pts of any top 8 side by a long way this yr & i can't see where they fixed this issue.
they will blow some sides away but when it comes to the crunch (finals) they may be found wanting.

Certainly some risk but I can see the thinking. Reckon Smith & Stringer easily cover Watson's midfield minutes. Saad covers Goddard in the short term. Agree they need 2 quality mids to join Heppell, Merrett & Parish. I guess this is where the state leagues come in handy.

I dunno. Didn't he always say Deledio was a dud? And as soon as we offload him, we win a flag.
Pumpkin.

Martin's best year by an AFL player ever might be a fun debate with rimau

Yep, other clubs just them let help themselves to whatever they wanted ... and on the cheap. Ridiculous!

Why he is 30 years old and played 153 games , Last 3 years he would have made $1 mil
Very limited footballer and extremely luck to get there and made some coin

Did well
Why? Because just like Lids, left the club and will most likely never be a premiership player. May have reached the end at Port. Was a Tigers fan from youth. Disagree about that limited. Had great pace, and endurance too; a good chase, tackle and pressure player. Top kick on the run. All attributes very much required now. Not a big earner comparatively over his career.

Eventually got his wish with Lids, but he's been way off with Martin. I do wonder exactly what happened between Dusty and Matt to make him feel that way.
