The forum has really slowed down. I generally lurk in the slow times occasionally to see what some of the regulars are posting but its pretty quiet. I expect a little more activitie when the draft comes around.
Well there’s only so many ways you can bag the Coach and Admin

I’m sure this question has been asked previously, but I’m interested to know where we have placed the money that we would have set aside for dusty, jk, gaff ect? I believe we need to be spending minimum 95% of the cap . Do we still have this ‘kitty’ or has the ship sailed?

I can hope for some contract news.

The ability to bank underspend and use it to go 5% over in a later year expires after 3 years. So if some of the gagf money came from spending under the cap in 2016 it’s gone.

However it’s just as likely that we were under the cap in 2017 and 2018 so it won’t have affected our overall war chest in any serious way.

At the same time we would have taken some of the gagf money and used it to prepay/front-load/restructure existing contracts, keeping the Big Fish Fund at a good level.

Well Sydney took Tippett again to do some engineering. Must be ways to do things tho maybe not for all clubs.

Interesting profiles between us and Essendon*.

Minus the giants, they are shorter (and faster?) and taller than the huge hump of 180cm players for us.

My little mate lives in his North jumper. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago he had a touch of gastro and exploded a bit and managed to get a bit on his jumper. At 4:13am we are in full argument mode over him not wanting to take it off and me telling him he ain't sleeping in poo. There was only one solution, promise to buy him a "sparey" in the morning. Job done, so to speak :)
