Perfect recruit for GC with the priority pick. 4 year contract at close to 1 mill per year can lay some foundations for them while they try and rebuild that club.

Gives us a first rounder to work with, close to 1 mill in cap space and fill some holes we desperately need.

I reckon we can cope with a backline of BZT, Hooker, Ambrose, Francis, Ridley next year. Its the type of ambitious changes that need to be made.

Yeah, we’re not getting pick 1 or 2 for him, especially when GC have an opportunity to pick the two best kids who are actually mates to go together.

Only way I’m ok is if he actually asks to go which I don’t think makes sense given the mountain of sh*t he’s been through, surely you’d want to see a bright future not the dumpster fire that is GC.

It is pretty funny. I guess if we trade Hurley we can look forward to 3 or 4 years of discussion about whoever we pick up making it or not to look forward to.
I have this feeling that bigfooty would only be happy if we had the 2000 season over and over and over and over, never losing a game, never fumbling a ball, all players taking unders to become one-club players for continued back2back2back2back success. Even then there will be some still looking to find fault.

just on that 2000 season though- cannot believe we lost to the bulldogs - Sheedy had no plan B, ridiculously out coached and no players stood up. was embarrassing.

I can always rely on you to give me a great chuckle, Kelvin.
