1. Yes it does. A football team needs a player to galvanise the team. He needs to set an example by his actions and inspire his colleagues.A few questions to get a concise understanding of how this board feels given all the chat about Jones, Viney, Gawn etc.
1. Does captaincy matter?
2. To what extent?
3. Do we have the right captain/s?
4. Who would be your captain/s in 2020?
Smh, if you're going to lowball Jones at least wait a couple of months before declaring he won't be captain anymore. Perty and Marns...negotiating masterminds..... doorstopfordanish.gifAs reported by some flog: https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-08-25/barrett-margin-call-round-23
Jones has been offered a contract for 2020, but it is a dramatically reduced offer.
The captaincy will be removed from his status next year, should he accept the fresh terms.
Ruckman Max Gawn, clearly the Demons' best player this year, is likely to be given official leadership responsibilities alongside Jack Viney.
