Well done. Unlike some here on BF from my club and yours, who create a feud between our two clubs. I am happy you kept Goldie and also Higgins. Smaller clubs need stability to be a so-called destination club.
I am mostly happy about Higgins because he didn’t go to the cats. Their arrogance is insufferable. But disappointed because he will now pass 100 games for North and future father sons will be split, and probably go to north because we put up with 8 injury interrupted years before he flourished. And he comes from a great sporting family.

He's like that I reckon. He seems incredibly driven and committed. maybe he feels the Dogs/life "rorted" him out of a flag.
Agree with the first part but have never got the impression he missed being at the dogs for a second even with the flag factored in.

He's like a reverse-Dal Santo. Which probably means he's stacked as well then.

He knows he career was done at Footscray. It’s not like they were trying to keep him. In fact he was being railroaded out.

I'm not going to read too much into that cool, unemotional interview.

We picked the bloke up as a free agent and he has born witness to us offloading a number of oldies who probably had at least a decent year of footy left in them. He knows it's a business, and a cutthroat one at that. Glad he stayed.
