“I went into the meeting at about 11:30am and I think I was number 10 to get delisted so going into the meeting I was quietly confident, but Brady Rawlings and Rhyce were the only two in the meeting and dropped the news.

It was quite a shock, but that’s footy unfortunately.

“I’ll be honest I was pretty angry and still a bit dirty, but that’s just the industry, it’s a cutthroat industry and nothing this year went my way I thought.

Righto.

Did he need to say that about Polec in public?
They had to talk about something. I'm guessing that SEN weren't really interested in Durdin.

I reckon Sam has now done more media since he was sacked than he's done in the 6 years of his AFL career.

Christ. Why are these delisted players/hacks getting a platform.

Sam, you are not good enough for AFL level. Time to move on.
It's amazing how those delisted had zero interest in the trade market yet somehow still feel aggrieved being removed from the 17th placed team?

Baffling really.

Shows how entitled we've made players feel in the past I suspect, that contracts are just a formality if turn up on time and a good bloke.

Spot on Chop.

It was far too easy to get retained under the previous regime.

Nothing went right for him from the start

It’s almost like these players are deeply cut from the Brad Scott cloth. “He will never drop me” mentality

Exactly. Maybe this further confirms we did the right thing by delist these entitled type players (apart from Jmac and Daw)

There’s a fair underlying current of the coaching group‘s shortcomings. Different timo and place now, plus a weird year, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard players speak less than glowingly of their club they’ve just departed.

Their issue not ours mate.

Most of them we gave second chances or way too many chances to perform so good riddance if they are pissed off.
