Why are other clubs bulging at the seams exactly? Other clubs like Richmond Geelong ect seem to have NO problems managing their salary caps... in fact they're regularly able to bring in STAR players after winning or making grand finals...?I think we were actually quite smart in the end. We got in early and fixed our salary cap issues going forward. Most clubs are now bulging at the seems due to loading up this year which means that there will be more than a few clubs having Fire sales over the next few years and we will be waiting for them to land in our lap, it was still terrible that the club allowed itself to get into the trouble that they were in to begin with, so at least they did salvage a little bit in the end
So it was quite smart to spend 3 first rounders on Treloar / Stephenson, then give them away for sh*t all AND have to pay significant portions of their salaries over the next 5 years? That's quite smart to you?
