Burgoyne arriving would ensure Ah Chee & Martin stay at least. That's more than any other mature age recruit has delivered for us so far.

For what it’s worth the Age Real Footy podcast, all agreed you should get a PP and retention allowance.

There is not many that want to come anywhere, who you had in mind. I don't mind the negative but who is really out there that want to come. Please don't suggest nathan/zak Jones from sydney/Melbourne both disposal are bad in well structure team.
Name me out of 17 other club which are not well structure but got good players that are willing to come. I am happy to agree to your suggestion.
Adelaide?
Carlton?
Essendon?
And so on.
I didn’t say I had an alternative, I was pointing out it’s a waste of money. Whether you agree or not is up to you, I am not trying to persuade you

I would take Zak Jones (Zach) in a New York minute, not keen on his brother so much but maybe Nathan is disgruntled at Melbourne hence the dip in form and bad culture they seem to have right now...….he hasn't looked a shadow of his former self this year though
Greenwood from Crows and Zak Jones would be nice around the stoppages

Brayden Fiorini our only <22 names in the best 22 under 22 squad.
Make sure you go and vote for him. Honestly - he's right in the mix for a midfield spot. Behind Oliver, Mccluggage, Taranto, Dunkley... but right there amongst the next lot. I did my team honestly and slotted him in on the wing.

Midfielders: Jarrod Berry (Brisbane Lions), Hugh McCluggage (Brisbane Lions), Zac Fisher (Carlton), Sam Petrevski-Seton (Carlton), Sam Walsh (Carlton), Andrew McGrath (Essendon), Darcy Parish (Essendon), Darcy Tucker (Fremantle), Jordan Clark (Geelong), Brayden Fiorini (Gold Coast Suns), Jacob Hopper (GWS Giants), Tim Taranto (GWS Giants), James Worpel (Hawthorn), Clayton Oliver (Melbourne), Oliver Florent (Sydney Swans), Josh Dunkley (Western Bulldogs), Bailey Smith (Western Bulldogs)

We should be hoping for Ballard / Rankine / King / Luko / Brodie to get nominated for the squad next year.

I settle for Greenwood and Shaun Burgoyne . I am big Brodie critic but I saw enough that he will step out next year, so don't really need zak Jones.

I don't understand why Luko isn't in that squad.

I assume the requirements are that you have to play majority games this season. Which he has.

Surprised Ballard didn't get a nom. However, there are some damn good players there.

Fiorini is in my team, and is captain.

Well it's a top 40 players <22 squad.
And Lukosius has not been better than any of those listed.

There would be a few others in the queue ahead of him swell.
You would have to say Ballard, Redman, Josh Battle, maybe Aaron Francis thinking of a few of the top of my ahead had better years.

His last month show that'll hell be in the mix for this next year.
Walsh, Bailey Smith, Rozee, Clark (shouldn't have got nominated) the only first years picked - all smalls / mid sizers

Cochrane with Barrett on the AFL site

Favorite tony quote so far “with the greatest respect you’re talking sh*t!”

In this edition of In The Game, Damian Barrett speaks to Gold Coast chairman Tony Cochrane
http://m.afl.com.au/news/2019-08-08/listen-jagger-sinatra-and-gold-coasts-untold-success-story
I really liked the part where Cochrane said the significant factor in Rupert Murdoch/News Corp (operators of Foxtel) signing the $2.5 million broadcast rights deal with the AFL in 2015 was the growth of Australian rules football in New South Wales and Queensland. It's really something you can't argue against in terms of keeping us in the competition. Could you imagine how the broadcasters would feel if they lost half their exposure in the third largest market of Australia which is South East Queensland for the considerably smaller market which is Tasmania? It would not go down well!

I didn't like hearing that Jaeger O'Meara looked Cochrane in the eye and said he was staying. Poor form.

Hi Guys
Loved the way your chairman took it to Barrett on his latest podcast. Barrett is the most ill informed going around.

Worth listening to this week's sacked podcast with Robert Walls. His experience at the bears was really interesting. Too many players there just for a retirement fund so they cut massive amounts of players. Shaun Hart was almost cut only stayed on because of his work ethic and went on to play 300 games and win a norm smith. Similar situation we're in now i feel and the way everything came together in 2001 made those decisions crucial.
