had a long chat with a Cats fan last night (yeah I feel dirty )
he's all doom and gloom , reckon the 3 departures hint there is something a bit stinky at Kitty Litter park

they'll slide to the bottom , Salt will walk and they'll start their rebuild

He didn't like it when I said , They'll win enough to stay out of the bottom 4
and they have to wait for mass injuries/retirements and at the end of the next season they'll get to high picks and that could be 2-3 years away

The cats will slide but with the massive leg up they get from playing so many games at kardinia Park and that they have enough elderly quality to put out a decent side I think they will still win enough games to be in the 6-10 range on the ladder.

Perhaps 7th to 12th? Right in the middle of no mans land, failing to achieve success while never receiving premium quality from the draft. Who knows' they might even achieve ninthlold.

FWIW - some random gossip

Talking earlier to an ex-AFL premiership player who keeps close contacts with clubs and his story is that GWS got bruised hands from clapping so hard when they "lost" Shiels to Essendon and later Cameron to the Cants.

Both were very poorly regarded up there.

No idea if true or not, but it always struck me as extremely strange that when Plastic Jezza kicked that first goal in the 2019 Granny he celebrated alone. Not one of his team mates came running up with the usual hugs, head rubs n arse pats.

He ran to the bench after that goal. His captain come off seconds after and basically ignored him. I thought it very strange the first time I saw the replay.
Assumed he was not liked by his team mates ever since

They probably already heard he or his agent was fielding big $$ offers to head elsewhere?

Perhaps they had their money on himmelberg for the first goal

Damien Barrett reporting Lots of talk in WA that Salty may be in the way out. Not a 100% starter to be there in 2022.

Please Santa, I'll forego my present for this ^^^^^^

No, no. no, Mark Lee.

Salty Scott needs to stay!

Who's going to oversee The Zimmer Frame Brigade? :))

disappointing.
I want him to be there to see the damage he has done to their list and have the media question it.

Agree. Would love to see him stay on as they lose more games and the players know their chance for a flag is gone.
Have been expecting him to bail just like twin brother. Will say he needs a long break from the game.

Because to stay and lose more games does more damage to his 'brand' as the best footy coach out there. So, he'll take a spell.

And wait for the job offers that Clarko rejects. :cool:
2022 will see a few coaches in trouble - Dew, Cameron at the Giants, Simpson at WCE, Ratten, even Ken at Port.
