I’m tipping you’re right haha.

I’m curious we’re resigning players without a coach. I know ultimately SOS is the list manager but I would have thought the coach would have a say...
More about List Management group these days. We also need to tie up our key players as well. Helps with recruitment and shows club is still on track

I love the bloke but 3 years when he’ll be 29 years old entering next season?

Maybe it was cheap or he had other suitors.
Could be a clause for his 3rd. May have taken less a season for a 3 year deal. Money up front to help us get more players in. Could be heaps of reasons

I remember speaking to a passionate Doggies' supporter during the 2016 season about Jones. Despite the fact Jones was struggling to have an impact, this Doggies' supporter reassured me that we had got ourselves a good 'un. It was hard to see at the time, but his judgement has turned out to be pretty good (he also told me from Week 1 of the finals that year that the Doggies were going to win the premiership. Again I couldn't see it at the time, but we all know what the Doggies achieved in the end).
