What kind of twilight zone have I come in to where Jack Billings is getting a $1m p.a contract offer?
There are plenty of other options for spending money rather than paying a bloke almost double what he us worth.Mate they have been banking for 5 years and have no other players to front load. Just have a look at their list
Ziebull , Goldstein , Cunnington are all coming to the end and salaries will be under 500k
They will struggle to meet the 95% and probably have $3 mill banked already
Who will they pay ? They need to utilise free agency and front load as Carlton did with Martin
Richmond were only linked to hogan because his management approached richmond. Richmond never really entertained it.Don't know why you guys were interested in Hogan. I know Fonzie Riewoldt is probably in his final season but Hogan is totally cooked.
Also 12 contested possessions (while playing almost exclusively forward), 12 score involvements and 3 tackles inside 50.26 touches and 2 goals continues his good form in contract years
Reportedly tore his plantar fascia in the warmup, so was a fair effort to play the game after that.Played injured last week apparently which explains his worst performance so far this year
This then begs the question on why they played him in the game ?Reportedly tore his plantar fascia in the warmup, so was a fair effort to play the game after that.
Second time in a week we’ve had someone do that either during or before the game.
Well we’d already made two late changes, on top of all our other injuries, so we probably figured we’d be better off with an injured Billings than any other option.This then begs the question on why they played him in the game ?
Why wouldn't they just replace him with 1 of the emergencies
Coming up against the best running team as well as one of the fastest with a manic game planWell we’d already made two late changes, on top of all our other injuries, so we probably figured we’d be better off with an injured Billings than any other option.
Played all his junior footy as a high half forward that’s definitely his best position we’re he plays best but we for some reason have always been hell bent on turning him into a pure midfielderWingard, Moore and Brockman look talented enough to cover that I reckon. Wingard and Billings splitting their time 50/50 forward and midfield would be pretty neat.
