Sources? You mean 3AW rumourfile?If your source's claim is true that we were very confident it would suggest that Longmire had agreed in principal or had given indication that he would give it strong consideration. If that was the case why did he sign so quick with Swans?
Horse was already in negotiations with the Swans when we enquired and with Pickers grubby hands all over it, we were leveraged. I dont think all the noise surrounding Longmire is a bad thing for us as it is a distraction for Archer's around Australia door knocking tour.
Keep your eyes on the road Rhonda as they say.
He could have sought a payout immediately. If he gets another job at the end of the year, he's given up extra money with us and we've saved money too - we're not trading him to another club here.No - if he finds another job then he doesn't get paid 'twice' - that's the arrangement in AFL contracts.
Doing 'the right thing by the club' would be agreeing to forego the final year of his contract full stop irrespective of whether he finds alternative employment in the AFL.
If he seeks payment in full for 2020 because he can't find another gig then he hasn't done anything 'right be the club'.
I agree with you - Bard is entitled to every cent we signed him up to - but let's not have this...I will look after the club...nonsense.He could have sought a payout immediately. If he gets another job at the end of the year, he's given up extra money with us and we've saved money too - we're not trading him to another club here.
Why would anyone willingly give up $750k? I sure as hell wouldn't. Expecting anyone to just give up money out of some moral obligation is unrealistic.
Thank God, I would hate them to be lost to footy like Nick Blakey would have been without the Swans Academy.That article says Longmires kids are in their academy
We actually damaged the game in the ACT by having Rawlings keep Judd to seven touches.Thank God, I would hate them to be lost to footy like Nick Blakey would have been without the Swans Academy.
In our 150th year as a club, I think it is important we recognise the sacrifices made by the Sydney Swans to grow the game in New South Wales.
I mean, what have WE ever done?
Hardly surprising given one would be a first time AFL coach the other a highly experienced premiership coachOn The Friday Huddlewww.triplem.com.au
Damo also said that Shaw's potential contract offer will be around half as much money as what they offered Longmire.
Not so sure about that."If Scott doesn’t secure a senior job for next year, he would have to be paid out for 2020."
Seems like shaw has been suggesting that this would be a good idea all along. He has publicly stated he has already been picking roos brain.Very big chance this happens
No self respecting, aspiring senior coach is going to go through the interview process knowing that Shaw is a candidate. No need for interviews.Should be interviewing Scott Burns, John Barker, Dean Soloman, Caracella, Longmuir and Chris Newman along with Shaw of course
