Crap news about Hannebery, but at least nice to get some clarity around what's going on with him.

Great news about Marshall.

How else do you give a bloke who everybody knows is shot a contract of that length?
Reminds me of the blokes who hurt themselves on the weekend dose themselves up with painkillers crawl into work and "do" their back 1o minutes into their shift! Absolute con-job from the beginning!
I think he meant how do you know it’s AFL money?

Yes but they weren't already stuffed when they got to us.
Frawley on a single year contract on 2 bob, wouldn't have been against Hannabery if on a similar deal.
But we sold the farm on a known liability on a long contract on big $$!
We didn't sell the farm, he's costing less than Srb Ross ATM just fyi.
l still don't see how Dan was supposed to predict his future enough to substantiate fraud.

Atleast je won't trigger the games clausr for an additional 5th year.

I was pretty excited during the pre season, those feelings are now long gone.....who's looking good in the draft.

We had to spend that money somewhere. I'd rather it go into the pockets of a guy with Premiership winning experience than inflating the paychecks of a Seb Ross, Lonie, Savage, Billings, Gresham, Webster etc. Nobody from the year we signed Hannebery deserved a larger paycheck each week, and with the requirement to spend a minimum amount - that money had to go somewhere.
No one wanted to come, we had a ton of money to spend on some players but nobody wanted to play for St Kilda.

We haven't missed out on anyone because Hannebery is getting paid whatever he is.
