AFL is a cutthroat industry and the weak are culled from the herd with relative ease, so perhaps he is good at what he does?

I love shitcanning him but you can’t say he doesn’t go into bat for the Bombers hard, even if it is detrimental to the overall outcome.

That’s what I loved about SOS, if it wasn’t a good deal (in his eyes) he’d dig his heels in.

Dodoro is no different.
Is there any evidence that the Dodoro/SOS strategy actually works? Melbourne supporters have loved the Josh Mahoney/Tim Lamb strategy of getting deals done early, then seeing if other deals can be done. And they often got canned on Bigfooty for paying overs. The proof is in the pudding. The list build has worked, whist the Bombers and Blues have been floundering.

If Dodoro didn't fap around with the Dunkley deal, he could have got Treloar for a steal.

Juddernaut08 is very quick to dismiss the media when it suits him though.
Think you'll find most people are like that Ambrosia. Will cite media articles which suit their world view or what they want to hear, and block out anything that contradicts it.

The only time we've had AFL consensus on something is really the peptides findings.

Reckon Marty Gleeson’s a bit of a star, and just wait until the Davey twins get to the club!
Marty Gleeson was emerging as a very good defender until he broke his ankle in the pre season of 2019. He simply never recovered from that chronic injury with complications robbing him of 2 years of footy in his prime. It’s an unfortunate example of what could have been. He deserved better, a very popular guy.

How have the blues and dons been performing the last 15 years? Seems to imply it doesn’t work

Who knows where the Dons would have peaked if not for the penalties from the peptides saga. The list never got the chance to peak around Jobe.

Blues have been terrible. But that was already the case pre-SOS.

I actually like the Dodo strategy of approaching contracted players, only to refuse to deal properly for them, achieving nothing but forcing the other team to carry a disgruntled player.

It's a good way to f*ck with your opposition without even really having to do anything.
Can confirm cost the Dogs the Premiership.

Essendon got top 5 rated Ben Hobbs at pick 13!

Dodo used the power of his mind to compel other teams not to draft him.
it would be nice if he could compel the current list to win a final.
They haven't done that since Dodo signed his first employment contract with the Bombers
