For what it's worth, up here in Kunners, all the indigenous mob up here can't stand Goodes, because of the way he has carried on.Re Goodes I think we have a tendency as humans to think in black and white. It’s either racist to boo or it was just purely his on field actions.
Most likely it is somewhere in the middle.
I can understand him being upset and thinking it was a racist attack but I can understand people who booed him because of his on field actions not liking it when they are accused of being racist and told to stop because someone is taking it as racist.
I met Goodes when he was doing a corporate speaking gig. He was very nice and charming to chat to prior to the event. However once he got on stage his whole demeanor changed and his presentation was very self pitying. I honestly walked away very bemused by the whole thing.
It was odd.
“It’s no coincidence that a big, strong West Coast Eagles key forward, who’s a restricted free agent at the end of next season, had a blow-out game against the Bulldogs last Sunday.
I heard his last contract made him one of the top 3 paid players in the squad so I don't think 800k is a stretch.There's no way he's a $1.2 mil per season player, and I highly doubt he is on $800K now.
Really? I haven't seen that about his previous contract. When did he sign? Not sure he ever had those kinds of runs on the board. - would've thought plenty would be in front of him.I heard his last contract made him one of the top 3 paid players in the squad so I don't think 800k is a stretch.
Dogs have cash to burn for next season's cap with Boyd's retirement. Makes sense they'd do something stupid and throw it at one player.
Yeah, expecting Derm and Dunstall to ten comment on Barrass' remarks - only having the paraphrased by Robbo - was pretty lazy. Prettyt sure Derm also said in that segment that we had lost to Collingwood.Robbo completely misrepresenting what Barrass said, that he had no motivation at the start of the season. No wonder Dunstall and Derm seemed shocked.
As always, the quality of coverage you would expect of the reigning premiers. -___-Yeah, expecting Derm and Dunstall to ten comment on Barrass' remarks - only having the paraphrased by Robbo - was pretty lazy. Prettyt sure Derm also said in that segment that we had lost to Collingwood.
How do you figure that?Dogs would end up losing one of their young WA guns if Darling wants out. I know JD is a FA next season but surely it would end up like a dangerfield situation.
