Awesome.

Normally it's just the s**t tier AFL media throwing us under a bus during situations like this. Now we have our old coach that recruited him adding his two cents as a regular on rade radio. Going to be a long trade period. Thank christ it is no longer 3-4 week trade eon.

Caught the back end of one caller proposing I think a 3 club trade where we end up with pick 8 & Matt Crouch.... get f*cked

I gave up listening to that show a few years ago because that type of nonsense. Half the time the hosts are just as bad.

Is this the same Francis that Port delisted in 2001 after a pay dispute? I am sure he will be busting to have Jason play there.
Port didn't delist him by choice. This was back before the current trade period era. Flash Francis was extremely highly rated and a massive, massive fan favourite. Think he won the members award mutliple times. The crowd would light up when he bound down the wing and banged it through from 50.

The fact is, we 100% wanted him to keep playing with us, but he was offered big money by Freo, bit like Rioli with Port this year, and he left us for that chance to set his future up. Unfortunately at the time it all backfired big time as a Freo salary cap issue meant he was left high and dry, before doing his knee and ending his career.

If Fabian could have his time again I'm 100% he would not have left Port.

Damo definitely ignoring texts.
Constantly reading his screen and pointing out minor corrections sent his way.

But refused to acknowledge Rawlings said the Clarko stuff wasn't a factor, despite what Damo claimed

Do the fans still like him now they know that he bashed his wife?

Was this before or after he became a convicted criminal?
