There was a bit of an out to that...My understanding was that a big part of the recently announced and agreed upon squad wide pay cut was that the club would not go after a big name player this off season or next.
Lets just say if we get to half way through the season and Cripps and Duggan havent re-signed........I'll be getting nervous.There was a bit of an out to that...
It is understood that as part of the Eagles' players agreeing to a more significant financial hit, they were assured that the money was not being kept to spend on luring another high-priced recruit to the club unless West Coast was to free its own space by unexpectedly losing key players.
The Sam Powell-Pepper period?Werent we talking aboutthe SPP period before round 1?
To be honest. Love Gaff, but at 28 he's starting that downhill, less productive, still paid lot period of his career. If I had to lose one of them, it'd be him.WC win the Flag
Duggan and Gaff both traded back to Victoria.
WC heads to the draft with an amazing hand and wins another flag before Freo
Agree, Duggan is about to go Yeo level in 2021. Don't want to lose him now.The Sam Powell-Pepper period?
Or did you mean the Supplemental Selection Period (SSP)?
To be honest. Love Gaff, but at 28 he's starting that downhill, less productive, still paid lot period of his career. If I had to lose one of them, it'd be him.
AhChee almost takes a contender for MOTY every second game. I mean one has to stick eventually right? Surely?
If we hub we need to make sure it is in Adelaide. Melbourne the second option. We need to ensure we don't hub in Queensland and play at night. Last year we were exposed to the conditions we like least more than we usually are. We are a dry deck team and dewy Queensland nights are the worst for us.Hub life will probably decide our year, we may be East again lots of the year and we all know out of our comfort zone we struggle.
Are we hungry and by that I mean really hungry to succeed, what is success to this group? Being competitive they have shown the last two years is enough.
We really are a hard group to read, I know what Richmond, Geelong and co will bring but with us you never know.
I am thinking that it’s not beyond us to win it but the more likely scenario is a low part of the top 8.
thats some funny sh*t wily ..My completely facetious list of predictions:
-Masten comes out of retirement to rejoin the team. Lays a team record of 40 tackles in a game
-Simpson gets so furious at the boys for lack of effort over this season he is actually sent off for anger management classes
-Darling finally moves to the midfield. Ends up leading the league in contested possessions
- Cripps picks up every ground ball below his knees without a single fumble. No, seriously
- The longer Duggans mullet gets, the more beastly he plays. Is later revealed to be Sampson, reincarnated
-TK to put up career best numbers. Was later revealed that the club threatened to ship him back to Geelong to room-mate with that flog Dangerfield if he didn't perform. Tim duly delivers
-Wille parleys his notoriety into creating his own medical marijuana company. His unique Tiwi island strain starts saving lives. Wins Nobel prize
-JK grows his beard to epic proportions. Is later found out to have been courted for a remake of ZZ Top
