I think Lyon also had the same stance on Luke Ball ?Lyon developed Neale, who is having another good year this year. You may need to look up the discussion with Lions fans from last season, because it is virtually word for word recreated here. Never were going to pay more than 6. Blah blah. Fremantle is clear in its stance that we will only trade contracted players in a deal that makes us stronger. Quite fair and reasonable.
Not really, he's mentioned in public that he loves it at Freo and wants to do the right thing by them. I'm pretty confident that he'll understand if they want to play hardball.you reckon ... going to cost him a bucket load of cash and keeps him away from his partner ... the contract next year for hill might not be as big from the saints cause its one year less ... i reckon if there was a reasonable trade offered and Freo rejected it then BHill would be pretty pissedoff with Freo
I wasn't aware of this. In other sports a club will say look, we can't trade you this year - stick it out and if you reward us we will get you to where you have to go next year. The AFL have a long way to go to get to that stage, but it could be seen that Hill gave Freo an extra season of great service so they'll make the trade work. Just spit balling.He wanted a trade last year!
what have freo done to deserve favorable media attention ? sacking coaches , failed seasons after seasons, players treated like rubbish, coaches who are frosty to the media, plus being the Pepsi to the WCE Coke in the WA market ... what do you expect ?? we are the same we have the media twisting anything into a negative for us .. its all part and parcel of being an unsuccessful club ... no point sooking over it ...Mate, eastern media outlets make the observation that Freo get bad media treatment in Perth. Robbo on 360 has said it on a number occasions.
What amazed me
I don’t get it.
I love Freo even if they stuff up things.
we are not pushing into our window ... we are resetting a failed re-build ... thats not cutting to the bone and starting again but cutting away what isnt going to help us grow ...I'm not in the get-Kelly-gang. I only want him if he wants to play for us and is available for a price we are happy to pay. For me that price is pick 5 (from you) or the maximum price is pick 5 and your second rounder (steak knives), but I would probably walk away. We don't need inside mids, and having lost our coach and by the looks of things 2 wingers, we are rebuilding, so my preference is to hit the draft.
- If we were pushing into our window (as you guys seem to think you are) that would be different.
- If Hill and Langdon were staying, I'd sell the farm for Kelly (in terms of draft picks).
i disagree we have one flag and i am proud of that flag but the win in 1966 has nothing to do with todays footy .. the game is so very very differant today as it was then ... flags in the 90's honestly i dont reckon mean anything either as the game in the 90's is totally differant to today ... realistically to have a bearing on a teams success you need to go to the start of this century.. 2000 - 2019 Brissys threepeate is still relevantI am sick of this argument. I deal with it a lot from a Freo supporter at work. The premiership before 1990 count. However if I was comparing say St Kilda and Power pre 1990 I would say the Power are the more successful team.
because we are poor as f**k !!! i know its hard to grasp but do you realise in the last decade when we were playing finals every year we were still borrowing equipment from other clubs ... when your club was entering the AFL we had players doing repairs on a collapsed roof in our training venue cause we couldt afford the contractors to do it...Why aren't you like your big brothers down the road in brown and yellow and only trade in stars? Yeah why aren't you a destination club who can get deals done? And why aren't you like your other big brothers in black and white and have someone in the media who can influence things for you? And why aren't you like your blue and white big brothers down the highway and have lots of decent father and sons?
loves it at Freo but wants out .... right...Not really, he's mentioned in public that he loves it at Freo and wants to do the right thing by them. I'm pretty confident that he'll understand if they want to play hardball.
Still waiting on those examples by the way, or are you just here to troll?
i would be interested to know if his partner stayed in perth this year or had she already moved to Melbourne ...I wasn't aware of this. In other sports a club will say look, we can't trade you this year - stick it out and if you reward us we will get you to where you have to go next year. The AFL have a long way to go to get to that stage, but it could be seen that Hill gave Freo an extra season of great service so they'll make the trade work. Just spit balling.
