North would become a non victorian team meaning the 18 clubs would be split 50 50

This also means five games at least outside victoria and tassie so only 17 games to be split between melbourne and tassie

Probably 8 tassie and 9 melbourne, 4 tassie games against non victorian teams and 2 melbourne games against not tassie. So only 1 true home game in melbourne against a victorian side

Blues will be crowing about getting Jack Martin for nix in the PSD. A nice reward for mediocrity! The $1 million first year contract won't really hurt them as that is only small change from their Cogs/Papley war chest.

Another complete fail from the Suns.... turn down sensible picks for a player and then let walk for nothing...

To be fair, we have no idea what was offered. For all we know the Blues could have low balled GC and threatened to take Martin in PSD if they didn't play ball. I can only imagine how Cochead would have reacted.

They should have shopped him around then, knowing he'd walk into the draft for nothing. Someone would surely have provided a late first round pick.

I thought it was documented that they offered a second round and third round.

More than reasonable. Then that campaigner of a club plays 'hard ball', lose him for absolutely nothing, secure in the knowledge that their sugar daady AFL will just throw priority picks at them anyway to help them despite their utter shitfulness in operating as an AFL club. Welfare mentality, masquerading as culture.

fu** them, fu** Cochrane, just fu** them off the face of the earth
