That sort of reward for threatening to leave might just encourage other players to have a tanty.He'll be made Vice-Captain and play centre.
My comment was made in the assumption he is 100% a dogs player for life. I have faith it will be handled well. Can't give it to Hunter, not Treloar, not Smith, he's still the best option IMO.That sort of reward for threatening to leave might just encourage other players to have a tanty.
Needs to be handled carefully. If it's clearly deserved and he's 100% behind the club then it can happen in good time. Doesn't have to be straight away.
Please......I suspect his team mates and coaches will shun him. For the next two years he will be sent to play for the Footscray VFL team where he will get his wish of being the "big banana" and guaranteed midfield minutes. He will be mocked and tormented by everyone who works at our club. Supporters will throw rotten fruit and spit at him every time he enters and leaves the field. He will be made an example of so that no other player ever considers trying to leave our glorious club ever again.
Let him lick his wounds for a while. I'd rather not hear him forced to lie and pretend he's happy to still be at the club. Let him disappear for a while and process it.I'd like to hear him speak, and I think its incumbent of him to do that for the clubs members and supporters tbh. Sooner the better.
