It looks like we held back announcing re-signings until they had certainty about Joe and Saad. That way good news isn't overshadowed by bad news I guess, and people can't say McGrath/Ridley only re-signed to play alongside someone who left the club.Good lad. Watch the AFL reoprters skim over us resigning players just to bang on about the mass exodus
to be fair, journos priotise stuff that gets clicks and "decent player who was never going to leave re-signs" only plays to supporters of that club whereas "star player is on the move" has a much broader appeal.Good lad. Watch the AFL reoprters skim over us resigning players just to bang on about the mass exodus
That seems unlikely.Have heard Richardson went over Doddoros head to sign langford for what he wanted, did the same for McGrath and Ridley - all signed on the same day. Guessing the club is drip feeding the signings to change the news cycle.
So is the theory that Dodoro was waiting on list sizes/salary cap before locking them in and Richardson decided to just give them a bit extra regardless instead of waiting any longer?Seems unlikely, yet is true. Can sound silly, but it’s what happened. It’s why their contracts have taken so long.
