Yeah, something not right at the Pies. Wouldnt be surprised if they were over tge cap and the AFL gave them the chance to fix it.
I can’t quite recall any other trade period like this, offloading that much ready made talent for (relatively) peanuts. Truth will come out eventually, however it’s been quite amazing and ridiculous to watch it unfold.

My Pies mates are filthy about the Stephenson deal, and the fact they need to keep playing Beams. Absolutely ropeable.
Imagine having to fulfil a contract under the salary cap. That'd be like us making Buddy retire at the start of this season and being upset we can't just get out of the last 3 years of his deal.

Yep, certainly fishy sh*t going on at the pies.

JUH points and Treloar with wage contribution for essentially a future 2nd is madness

Just put a microphone in front of Treloar and Stephenson. I reckon neither one of them would be shy about spilling everyone.

What's lol about that. He's fringe at Brisbane, he's likely gonna be fringe here, I think it's more a look at when Jetta and Hurn retire.

Gov, Barrass, Sheppard, Duggan and Hurn are locks down back. So Witherden is fighting for that last spot with guys like Tom Cole, Nelson, Rotham, Jetta etc..

I was a bit annoyed we didn't go after Witherden because he's a Geelong local but we can't get Jordan Clark a regular game ATM with 3 new additions so he wouldn't get a regular game for us.
