    Dear God you write some drivel.

    Nobody, but nobody, has said that the former policy was "really awesome", or anything even remotely close to that. Nor has anyone written that it was the "greatest gift to football administration". Indeed nobody has written anything about the pluses or minuses of the old policy, all they have done is observed that Betts' contract is a significant break from the previous policy.

    So now you feel the need to make shit up, in yet another sad and pathetic attempt to discredit the club... The old policy was the "bestest thing ever" you mock, completely ignoring the reasoning behind it and insinuating that the policy had a direct bearing on Adelaide's failure to win a flag. What a croc of shite.

    This is a risk vs reward decision. Generally speaking I don't have an issue with the 30 year old equates to ongoing 1 year contracts. It is a good rule of thumb, but you can't live and breathe by it. There are times when you need to say....wow we have one where we need greater flexibility. Betts had his best year at 29/30!!! When you are a footy club eying for a flag.....you need a certain amount of flexibility to ensure you have the best team to give you success. Well done Crows and well done Mr Ed.

    How about you try reading the post I originally quoted for starters, then re-think what you've just posted here.

    That goal at 5:10 did not get enough love at the time, that is ridiculous ...
