I'm very surprised that Swans let Aliir Aliir go, and for a very moderate price - also a future pick making it harder to replace for season 2021.

Am I the only one who finds some trading strategies from clubs illogical?

Media ripping into the Pies and a few clubs in turmoil this off season including ours with the departures but both North and the Pies show how hard it is for a club to be well run and successful as we can see the Pies went all in for a premiership and they are facing the consequences and although they still have a strong squad I can see them missing finals next year and it will be interesting seeing how the group is after the players leaving although Treloar was a starting mid I think they can shuffle players around to replace him it just erodes the depth and I am surprised Dunkley stayed at the Dogs but maybe they will have Bont forward more to have those 2 players pend more time in the midfield

new report: Collingwood Culture Exactly What Everybody Already Knew.

colour me shocked.
When their president consistently goes in radio/tv/newspapers with racist and sexist comments and nothing happens to him, it’s pretty straight forward.

Interesting this report was given to the club only 2 days before Eddie put his hand up to retire.

I note the club didn’t release it but the report was leaked. Shows they have no intention of fixing the issues.

I really hope they don't go into R1 with 2 rucks

Although, can't see any way we don't use the Brisbane pre-season match to trial Flynn and Briggs

There's a scratch match with the Swans in between too right?

Haven’t heard about the scratch match but they would be crazy not to with only 1 pre-season game.

Plus Caldwell showing plenty. He may have us scratching our heads long after Jezza has retired.

Nothing against Caldwell and Hatley, I wish them well, but I’ll be dirty if they both explode this year. The club did a s#!t job with the pair of them.

To be fair both were played. Club couldn’t do much more than give them a ridiculous offer.
They were home sick mummy’s boys nothing more.
