If
SOS was still loitering at Marvel Stadium right up until deadline ...

then
we know he got Doriemus-style close (v Might and Power in the 1997 Melbourne Cup) with Dylan Shiel.


I don't know what any of these words mean.
He got played by GWS into continually talking up Carlton’s chances so that Essendon would pay what GWS wanted. He’s still trying to do it even after the trade period is finished so he doesn’t look too stupid.

As an aside, The Herald Sun are reporting he’s left the Footy Show.

It’s just embarrassing. Please can’t someone in the industry tap him on the shoulder and say mate ‘not one of the 18 examples of sliding doors you just gave actually meet the definition of a sliding doors moment’

Thanks for that. What has the Melbourne cup thing got to do with it though?

'Barrett has pushed for the salary cap to be abolished so the game's elite could increase their earning capacity to millions of dollars per season.

Barrett, speaking on The Sounding Board podcast, said too few of the AFL's marquee drawcards were capitalising on their crowd-pulling abilities.

Under an abolished salary cap, Barrett said Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe could command eight to 10 million dollars per season.'


This guy is just a moronic insufferable attention seeking flog

Think Damo is severely over-estimating how much money some of these clubs make.

Hutchy quite rightly slammed him on this. No salary cap works for about 4 clubs and screws the rest of the league. Terrible, terrible idea.

I’ll take a salary cap everyday of the week.

No name attached to that article. What's the bet Barrett wrote it himself?

I never consume articles by him or most other media monkeys, but honestly....WHY TF is it still called 'Sliding Doors'?

Barratt and Bevo really, really dislike each other
Looks like Simon Lethlean and Damo relationship heading the same way.
Damo is really amateur in the way he makes it so obvious that things are payback on a personal level. And it normally because someone has challenged some crap he has spewed out.
