Doesn’t say much about the club though does it. Imagine every deal you try to make leaking to the press. Just outright disrespectful to the club you’re supposed to be working for.

their supporters lap it up

leak it out makes them look active, see if people like the idea

Not sure. I would have thought he'd be on close to that money with us. "Blow us out of the water" to me would mean $1.5M to $2M.
We also have a more exciting list. Who knows. Horse holds all the aces for mine.
So you’d have Franklin eating up 10-15% of salary cap and Longmire 15-22% of the soft cap? Bit outrageous if you ask me but my membership only pays a very small amount of the bills!

I'm sure we pay horse accodingly after 9 years but nowhere near $1m. probably closer to $750k. I'm not sure if I want longmire to re- sign but I absolutely do not want him to go to Norf. Can not stand that club. It hurt to watch Shaw go there last year.

The club has Buddy eating up 10-15% of the cap, not me. I'd prefer to spend $1M for Horse over 300K forCaracella for example but my membership only entitles me to an opinion & not decision making, thank god.

That was your opinion as is $1M for Longmire. It’s all your opinion, but you are entitled to that opinion...and a beanie!

Blakey keeps getting all the praise but honestly Dawson should be getting it as our next up and comer. I know he's been at the club a few years now but at 22 he's stringing together some seriously good performances. I'm very keen for us to lock him down soon
Shhhhh. The media is how all the Melbourne clubs recruit.
