    The best thing about Deer Park in 2013 is that they have put a huge target on their "head". Eamesy who is the best coach in the WRFL by a mile must be sitting back and laughing as the reigning premier with the knowledge that all the pressure and focus will be on Deer Park and the two Grand Finallists from 2012 - Altona and Spotswood can go about their planning and recruiting with the focus on the "Ballarat Road Cowboys".

    Yeah, all those players pictured for Deer Park are Mercenaries. All of them from Marby Park pledge their loyalty to M.Park but as soon as a better $$$ offer came they jumped ship very quickly. All those players are on minimum their 3rd senior footy club, geez how things have changed!
    They all are being paid a sign on fee and substantial over the odds per game, just like they were at their previous club! It does make you sick.
    I understand anyone from Deer Park getting on here and defending the huge spend and to be truthful, yes it will bring happier days for a while just like 2 years ago when you bought the Div 2 Flag, but it does make you feel sick, local Footy has been ruined by the almighty $$$, and these mercenaries benefit the most and the poor old volunteers at each Club suffer. Is this the way we really want local footy to be?
    I don't mean to single out Deer Park as there are plenty of clubs in all leagues doing it

    Spot on.

    Probably the most annoying part of that article is where Bullen says "Clubs that sit on their hands tend to get left behind"....easy for Bullen to say because clubs that have a chequebook in one hand and a pen in the other have a massive advantage over everyone else.

    Well do some better work behind the scenes and work to increasing your budget so you can compete with the big boys! I'm wrapped deer park have let loose, will get more people to the games next year especially grand final day when they lose

    Altona will go back to back with deer park second, spotty 3rd and hoppers 4th

    Eames/Altona have the right approach. Deer Park will probably enjoy a couple of years of success and then slip into oblivion. All these mercenaries must give Deer Park Juniors (do they have any?) an incentive to go elsewhere as the club obviously doesn't think they are good enough to develop into senior palyers.

    At least Altona and Spotswood look after and develop their Juniors.

    I can understand clubs recruiting to improve, but 14 players is ridiculous. 5-6 players would seem reasonable, as you usually lose a couple. Will there be a local or junior player in the senior side next year?
    They may as well have gone and started a new club (Maribyrnong West would seem relevant). Most of the recruits wouldn't have known where Deer Park was on the map until the 'bank' rolled in. Agree with BF50, $ ruining local footy.

    Bullen makes me sick talking about clubs who sit on their hands. Well I can tell you Marby wasn’t sitting on their hands. They had their hand out shaking his as he rolled back into Marby asking to be their runner during the finals. What a snake! Would love to know what messages the bloke was taking out “ You want a job too Ayresy, sure mate, no problems”
    Moneybags himself was close with some of the more gullible ones down at Marby; obviously picking their brains and plotting his next move. The only one Moneybags couldn’t get around was a former President, Life member and player who had him pegged from day one. He couldn’t cop the bloke and couldn’t come at someone who kept the club in the dark about who he was paying on the side and how much. Moneybags doesn’t give a shit about any club – it’s all about him.
    His one stint as President of Marby (what were they thinking!!) he left the Club in $60K debt and having spent close to $45K that was invested. So much for bankrolling clubs – he also rolls them when it suits him. Clearly relying on one sponsor is never gonna work, I think Marby have worked that out and will cop it on the chin. It’s the sneaky way these blokes went about it that is so unforgivable. Lying, pretending they are mates and confidants, befriending sponsors only to steal them for Deer Park. Bullen, as a friend of the club, riding into town ready to rape and pillage with not even the balls to be upfront. Mate , isn’t the big checkbook enough – you gotta act like a two faced dog as well???
    And moneybags I hear is even trying to poach the Marby Team Manager…hmmmmm, sounds like a vendetta against Marby to me……and all whilst he is an EDFL Board Member ( or was, surely they will get rid of the rat); access to EDFL player databases, access to coaches, Presidents, club officials thinking they can trust the man from the EDFL. Think again lads! I gather integrity, honour, honesty and courage are not Moneybags’ middle names.
    Rumour has it he even gave Pricey’s kid a job. Now isn’t that a cosy little arrangement.

    Has deer park really signed broadbeent? His mate at Yaraville (coach Connell) would be crying in his rice bubbles cause broadbean promised Yarra coach "I'll plat with you mate if you get into 1 division" poo to that says broadbeck if rumor true and he be sign at gold and blue.
    Broadbeak now up to his 17th club or something::::: Seymour, Strathmore, Marybrynonng, Kelior Park, Tullamarine, Albion, Hammerheads, St. Bernard's to name a couple
    No training top needed for broadback as he must need a kennards storage box to keep he's jumpers and tops!!

    I've been critical of the $ in local footy in the past, but it's a fact of life. Don't like it, go play/watch ammos. One thing it does do is break the monotony of the same 2-3 clubs winning the flag each year. Fact is all these bloke would command decent coin wherever they went.

    I don't know Marc Bullen that well but he's no snake. He's a genuine bloke, when he was runner for Marby his finals campaign at Congupna had just finished and I reckon he was pretty certain he'd play up there again next year and had already turned down one coaching offer elsewhere. He's a natural leader and speaks well during the breaks and will make a good coach.

    Yes Deer Park have piled some pressure on themselves with these signings but don't criticise them for it. They're just doing what we'd all love our clubs to be able to do.

    Doesn't Deer Park remember what happened a few years back?
    Parkside recruits all these guys and gets to a Grand Final undefeated, then a team of youngsters come from nowhere to clinch the victory.
    Without younger players, teams will go nowhere in today's football.
    Hoppers, Spotty and Altona pushing their kids through and only recruiting a few players from outside the club seems to be way to go. Even Albion in 2010 when a couple of kids come up from under 18's made a difference for them.
    So come finals time in 2013, Deer Park might be up there with their 14 recruits that are now has beens, but the club with the youth will run right over the top of them.
    Doesn't this sound familiar to those Deer Park supporters.
    Good luck to them wasting $300,000 or even more then when the money drys up, AND IT WILL, they will find themselves back down in Div 2 again.
    This is what wrecks local footy.
