So Crows think they have their prize and it's taken away from them in the blink of an eye.

Richmond. *smile* with the Crows since 2017.
Richmond been F#$%#& with the whole competition and the AFL Kommissars since 2017.

The collective phews and sighs of relief are still echoing across the landscape.

Just as soldiers under constant attack on the front welcome the quiet lag between machine guns constantly strayfing or an artillery bombardment, to move safely or get even a minutes respite.

Just as on the battlefront the rest of the competitions respite shall hopefully be short lived n 2022 with the Tigers only pausing to change the barrels, re load and re mark before opening fire again.

Be interested to hear Balme and Adelaide's take on all this.

Someone close to me had a 10 second conversation with Adelaide about doing some work next year recently, and they mentioned several names they had secured or were confident of securing for next year, one of which was Balme. That impression must have come from somewhere.

People do bend the truth in order to attract new talent. Happens in all walks of life.

Or perhaps it was a sales pitch.

Mick Malthouse said that Balmey has got Grandkids in Victoria, so I'd imagine that would be a factor considering he's rising 70.

Maybe, but the mentioning of names came after the offer was politely declined out of hand due to the person having a medical issue that would prevent employment so there wasn't anything to gain by exaggerating.

It sounded like he was on annual leave for the last 3 months. He either knew nothing or was lying through his teeth!

I'm pretty sure he was just trolling the wankers.

The Big Boss man knows exactly whats going on, he and Hartley would be in communication even if informally.
