    Interesting from Dew. He knocked back Melbourne. He didn't even apply for Carlton or Brisbane. Pulled out of the Adelaide process.

    But he applied for and took the job at Gold Coast. Was that really the job he's been waiting for?

    Took the knock pretty hard, wasn't really in the race for the others. Suns are a basket case, probably thinks he is due.

    Even putting the GF speech aside at this stage, there's absolutely 0 excuse to treat Lever like he has.

    0 Class.

    Walker having a "catch up" coffee with Gibbs this time last year but now crying about Lever requesting a trade.

    Also this last part about the trade negotiations is comedy gold!

    No wonder these idiots couldn't get a deal done last year. :D

    Agree. Walker has come out of this looking like a massive bully.
    Taylor's livid. He signed a contract extension back in June, til the end of 2021.
    Taken a pay cut (allegedly) to keep $$$ for guys like Lever to re-sign.
    Then Lever refuses to commit and asks for a trade to the Demons. For big bucks. And he's only 21.

    Walker's fuming because he's a FA at the end of 2018. He's done the team thing. Lever hasn't.
    Tex is lashing out because in his mind he's made financial sacrifices to keep the 'team' together.
    Therefore, Jake's a selfish, undeserving mercenary git who deserves public condemnation.

    Seriously poor form on Tex's part and from the Crows.
    Professional organisations handle these type of matters behind closed doors. Privately and discreetly.
    Then again, this is the Crows. They nailed their real colours to the mast in the Gibbs 'trade' fiasco.

    Teague stated today in an interview that the game is now clearly a professional game where players seek to maximise return and Clubs are willing to pay massive incentives to young players for long contracts.

    The logical outcome of this is exactly what SOS has employed at Carlton - never ever pay too much because sometime you are going to have spend big on genuine match winners.

    I have sympathy for Walker's response to a kid who is the beneficiary of big dollars somewhere else. Adelaide drafted him and developed him and now he goes. I don't think his reaction 'speaks' against him as a leader. The Bloke is from Broken Hill and has been a loyal and tremendous player for Adelaide for years. It must hurt to see Dangerfield leave right when their window opened. It must hurt to hear rumours that Sloan wants out .....

    However my sympathy towards Adelaide is extremely limited by the fact that they stole Eddie, got Jacobs for nothing and showed poor form in the way they dealt with the Gibbs issue last year- playing it all out in the public media. Adelaide would be wise to consider making friends with Clubs or being professional rather than parochial - because they will be big losers if they continue to believe that they are 'entitled'.

    Conclusion? EAD Adelaide.

    Well Adelaide had apparently told Lever to not show up to the Best and Fairest.

    Petty move

    Yep Jack Gunston was to receive the Mark Bickley award but because he was leaving to go to Hawks they changed the winner to Daniel Talia.

    Adelaide are acting very pathetically lately. Sore losers obviously.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Gibbs got a late invite as a seat filler.

    Don't want that Schnitzel going to waste.

    Adelaide's boards logic is

    "The moment he requested a trade he is no longer an Adelaide player, therefore he forfeited any right to attend."

    Ah so Charlie Cameron won't be attending either as he requested a trade and Scott Thompson retired so I can only assume they forfeit their rights too?

    Bunch of little crybabies

    After the behaviour of Adelaide in last years trade period I am positively glowing with schadenfreude.
