Its not just me that thinks they did more then just trade out players, the football world knows that it was a disaster, and the lies that Ned Guy spun where hilarious. I think you are spinning it by saying they were replaceable to make out it was not as bad as all thought. You are what, replacing Treloar with Brayden Sier or a 2nd year player in Daicos ?You can think what you want mate. Considering clubs like St Kilda and West Coast playing lists have had to take pay cuts more than double the agreed pay cuts of 3.5%, shows that salary caps are about to explode across the competition. Obviously at Collingwood we could see the writing on the wall, and decided to trade out players that we feel we can cover. No surprise in the light of day, that Ad's and Stephenson in particular were traded out, as both hardly played in 2020, and the side was able to go ahead and qualify for finals.
As your a Bulldogs supporter you obviously have no idea about the playing list at Collingwood, and as a member of the Pies, l feel very happy with the current list, particularly the youngsters coming through, a few that we haven't seen in the AFL yet, along with a couple of our draft picks from 2020, the list is in a pretty good spot.
and hoping Elliots injuries holds up to make it so they wont miss Stephenson in the forward line .
