Uncontracted player (not captain) doing his due dilligence and assessing what offers are out there vs contracted captain asking his management to actively seek out interest from rival clubs. The difference is enormous.
As I recall it, Trav's whole reason for looking at moving was because of a genuine family issue, that's why Geelong made sense if he was going to go, not too far from his family. So yes, very different.

When you fu** up the captaincy decision so badly that your marketing department uses the former captain as point man.

I’d probably have less of an issue with co-captains if they actually at least acted like captains.
I just don’t see it, I see the likes of Boak,Hartlett, even Dixon on social media and in the media either working on being better players or doing club related things.
If you’re going to accept the position at least take some of the responsibility that comes with it.
I think I must be just getting old and grumpy.

anyone else got a feeling hammer is going to get the number one?

he’s always front and centre lately
Nope. No way will they drop both of them after only one year. It just won't happen. It would be a bad look for the club and not good for either player mentally.

Imo expect co-captains for one more year, then Ollie might leave and it'll be just Jonas on his own or someone else completely.

Funny you should say that. When I got a call from the club re Membership, I said I was waiting as to what is going on with two Captains.
I said that Hamish should be given it, person agreed, and said he would make a good Captain.

Wow, I've never had someone trying to sell me something agree with anything I've said. ;)

The annoying thing here is that the PR is so easy.

Pick a captain, and announce it in a press conference where the other one talks about how important it was to have a number 1 running around in our 150th year, and that we knew it was important to the fans who are the club, we are merely the custodians rah rah rah.

Just get it done ffs.

So the club indirectly acknowledge that having co captains on promotional material is bad for publicity so they use Boak instead.

If they aren't going for captain vs captain of the two teams then why pick Jarryn Geary? Pick any of Ross, Membrey or Billings there to headline it instead to make it less obvious.
