Hmm interesting.His comments on Tuesday don’t preclude the possibility of a move to Geelong.”
NORTH Melbourne star Shaun Higgins has scotched the suggestion he’s holding his AFL home to ransom for longer job security. A Channel Seven report has linked the 31-year-old to a surprise switch to Geelong in the off-season, despite the in-form midfielder having a year to run on his deal at...www.krockfootball.com.au
Might have something to do with sleepless nights due t him having a kid on the same day, see it all the time, young fathers walking around like zombies after they have a child.IMO Higgo has never returned to his pre concussion levels and still seems affected. Seems a little slower of thought and action, not playing the game two steps ahead as he was when at his best and tearing the opposition apart. I'm sure the club and Higgo family ticked all the boxes and I'm proly just not giving enough credit to how hard the game is at afl level even for the best, but now it's in my mind I keep seeing the signs every game.
Jy Simpkin might not see the benefit.I wouldn't blame Geelong, North, or Higgins, if the mooted move went ahead.
If Geelong were to offer an extra year (or two) on top of the contracted 2020, that would be good security for an aging Higgins.
And if North got a decent pick in return, it wouldn't be a bad outcome.
We got several excellent seasons of footy out of him when he was in his prime and we had a crack at the flag.
Not saying I want it to happen, just saying I can see the benefits for all parties concerned.
