fu** me in the ass. Why her of the whole bloody list.

In a strange way, it might help in the long-term?

With expansion coming, Essendon would have been originally keen to lure GP back (where she played her VFLW), but now, they (and the Hawks) might have gone cold on her.

They used to say there's no 'I' in team. I have to say, I guess this is an 'I' issue,,,,but I have to say that!

On SEN just minutes ago they were discussing Liam JONES and Georgia PATRIKIOS.....or LIAMIKIOS if you like! In regards to our Georgia, could someone tell me, from a contractural point of view....If for arguments sake she actually was simply uncomffortable with say the change of coach...DAL doesn't give her the preferential treatment that Peta SEARLE did...(as many stars' egos do expand) she decides that say the BOMBERS or another premiership bound franchise may offer her much more hope in the future...next year or similar.

All hypothetical.....the question is ..Does she have greater propensity and leeway to break contractural obligations for a Conscience Issue such as COVID VAX or would it be a greater trial for he to leave for such issues under contract. Compared to breaking such contractural obligations for purely self centred reasons...Does it vary? Public opinion no doubt would? I just have no idea. The question is pretty simple please forgive my complicated expression!

Yeah she could quit her contract and stand out for the year.

Wait until they either drop the vax requirement or get the jab and enter the draft next season.

It is a shame. GP is a very good player. Her footskills are as good as anyone. That press release reads like a bad reddit thread. Facepalm worthy.

It would be a crying shame! IMO!

Not the best start today, plenty of work still to do.

Does anyone know Patrikios' contract status? I dare say we've seen the last of her in Saints colours and she'll be off to the Bombers. It's a shame she couldn't be included in the team photos this season.
I believe the league has already indicated it'll void extra years on contracts of players who sign to expansion clubs. If Patrikios decides to leave, it's just going to come down to whether the league has come up with any reasonable compensation model (which I doubt) or whether they decide to massage the situation like I believe they did with the Dogs getting pick one for Mon Conti (which may be more likely). Honestly, if you told me I could get a top-5 pick for her right now, I'd take it.

If she doesn't want to be there I guess we are better off without her. If she is dedicated to not getting vaccinated and bows out of footy well I have to have respect for her and admire her commitment to her ideals. We will see I guess! I really hope it is because she is firm on her stance and not just a means to an end! I say that as a person who on the face of it embraces the value of the vaccination. I'm asking the question because its all about the SAINTS AFLW team footy and to date nothing has clearly been outlined or explained as to what is what is happening....season starts just after new year doesn't it?

Yeah bit disappointing she isn't playing. But I would be happy to get a top 5 pick as well for her. It's early days and those who are being drafted now are probably a bit better than draftees a few years back. And while she racks up possessions I felt she didn't do enough damage with her disposal...

She's an All-Australian and 2x B&F winner.
