Dangerfield out again apparently. ... I'm tipping his spot in the elective surgery list has finally opened up for the elbow replacement.

Carey reckons we should hava crack. ... Dustin Martin + Jordan K Martin:unsure:


yeah nah - I think players like DeGone are club killers - not good enough to consistently take a game and win it, but they and everyone pretends they can.

I couldn‘t even see him do a Lynch, win us crucial games during the year to get us into the 8, and then dominate a prelim when our back are against the wall.

He has baggage and then some.

Actually, I should have added that I'm not a fan of the idea also.... so I'm with you there.
I know people throw out the "no *smile* policy".... every club does and I reckon most supporters of their own team let themselves believe they don't have any.
As you say, DeGoey has baggage, so he's a known quantity.

Let the pies have their next Treloar/Stephenson issue in a couple of years with a DeGoey/Grundy/Moore cap problem I say.

How does WCE get off so lightly ???

2 years in a row they’ve been shocking.

They are getting beaten just as badly as Norf but get 1/5 the scrutiny.

Probably coz no-one over this side of the country gives a *smile* about Wet Coke and over the other side of the country they're such fanbois that they'd rather suck up Wet Cokes *smile* than even acknowledge the Frockers exist.

Not looking great for Ben Rutten, as I said.
The leading story on Footy Classified.
First, they will bring in an emergency support panel.
That is probably a face-saving measure, in the interim, to cover all bases.
It stands to reason that you would secure Clarko, out of contract, one of the great coaches.
I would sign Clarko for five years.

Gut feeling that Rutten is done.
They will pay him out.
Remember Xavier Campbell is on $850K, so money is no object.
Clarko could earn $1 million per year for five years.

And who did they bring in for the review? Sheedy, Madden and Wellman. At least Wellman is currently in a role there. however……where is the objectivity by using these 3? Might as well just get Robbo to do it on his own. The end result will be. Bring back Hird.

Idiotic.
