If there is I don't know of it. American sports has got this right in regards to everyone knows how grossly overpaid their blokes are. There are entire websites dedicated to tracking NFL teams salary cap room ect.The league really needs transparency on player contracts. It's frankly ridiculous that we don't know enough financial details on this debacle. Is there any other salary capped league for any sport in the entire world that has this must secrecy on financials ?
Performance bonus triggers for achieving certain stat milestones are openly talked about on broadcasts
The more the AFL try and hide this stuff leaves me to think how much are they actually hiding?
If I had to pick between this and having posters leave and never come back then hand me the fking canister I want my hit
Fine, I'm willing to allow him a merry Christmas but I know where he can stick his new year.
I appreciate all the painstakingly researched posts and attempts to see the situation through a different lens, You guys make reading through this all slightly easier to take.
Not going to lie, This one is going to hurt for a long time. As I tried to explain to some friends in a group chat that knows little to none about AFL - This is like someone special promising you this wonderful future and then proceeding to yank the rug out from under you (I may or may not be projecting my own unresolved trauma here but eh, fu** it.)
My main issue with Hugh is that he said he'd knock back all offers and then turned around and did that. Man's only as good as his word
Yes, the club screwed the pooch so hard the pooch needed to lock itself in the bathroom with a tube of soothing cream, and yeah I'm still pissed at those incompetent dumb dumbs
But to hell with it, it's done now - so what we lose a year of Greenwood. Mark my words a hidden gem is going to get an opportunity out of this and take the comp by storm (Stupid sexy Flanders?) and we're going to be going "Whowood?" by this time next year.
Delusional? Yeah probably.
But one day we'll wake up and be thankful for the real OGs like Touk ******* Miller that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and says "I know you're struggling right now, but I'm pushing all my chips into the middle with you and we're gonna ride this thing together till the wheels fall off"
