Posted by Dish two days ago. Currently working as a FiFo worker during the downtime and not forgetting his North origins.Drew lives in Perth and works for the Eagles alongside Simmo and Pratty. That makes it awkward for him to be part of the North cheer squad. He did come to the 150-anniversary dinner last year and was very popular and made to feel welcome. I'm sure he still loves the club.
Boomer being cut by them is a factor that created the power vacuum that was ultimately filled with Brad's ego.Boomer should have been the one to call time on his career. Not Scott or Joyce.
Who else should have gone Jab?The thing that sucked most for me was that Brad Scott and Cameron Joyce had given up on the season after Round 20 despite the fact that we were going to play finals. And as it turned out, the ******* Bulldogs won it all. The cull was already in motion. These two clowns wrecked any chance we had of challenging for the flag.
What was almost as frustrating is that the board gave Scotts and Joyces the green light to rebuild, yet they squibbed it by not cutting deeper when they had the chance. They wanted a bit each way.
The biggest issue with Boomer being sacked was the hit to membership. We had thousands of new members sign on because of Boomers record. I know a couple, and they haven't resigned because they were disgusted by his sacking.Boomer should have played one more season.
Spud was done.
Dal Santo was done.
Petrie could have stayed on at minimum wage and match payments and I think it would not have hurt the list.
We really don't know what happened behind closed door but it certainly was ugly the way it played out in public
Hrovat was 23 at the time we recruited him. Not like we picked up Kasey Green to fill his spot...Turn it up mate. The reason Boomer was moved on was for the development of the kids coming through. The fact that Hrovat was recruited that off-season and played 22 games in Boomer's position is irrelevant.
THis is what I though the thread was about, and not about 3-4 players.I moved on 4 years ago and I'm sure all those players have too.
Bring on the rest of 2020..
I agree. I also think they needed to move him on so that other players could grow into leadership maturity not just one guy who plays the same position.Hrovat was 23 at the time we recruited him. Not like we picked up Kasey Green to fill his spot...
