Logue $800k!
That's ridiculous for essentially a role player
North have unlimited money rn so its really a free swing for them, better to get a player in instead of spending up on holding onto spuds

but yes it is a wild kind of once in a lifetime offer for Logue that he would have had no choice but to take

also I think as a defender he is better than a role player but thats obviously going to be tested so we will see

They may have data on their side, but I searched my feelings.

Been long of the view that 3rd forward tall types are the most overpaid for actual output.
McStay certainly wouldn't have knocked back that Pies offer, again for a 3rd tall type in maybe the Dawes mode for the Pies now.

Logue $800K, wow he'd be among the top 3 or so paid at Catland on that coin, just wouldn't happen at Geelong.

Old mate is a real club can do no wrong type , Freo screwed it up with Louge we could have signed him to half that 800k but took too long to offer him a deal and by the time we did he had been shopping himself around and some big dough offers came through

That wasn’t even the highest offer apparently

Super athletic dumb ass but there ain’t many who can shut down Cameron ( C ) to Cameron ( J)

If the early re-signing is true, we botched that one.

That said, he really shouldn't be b22 anyway because we need actual forwards in the forward line. So he'd have ended up depth and leaving in a year or two for SFA. Either that or Pearce snaps in half and he plays the next 200 games straight.

Based on the squiggle, they rate Geelong a better than 50% chance to finish top 2?

I'd love to get even money about them to miss top 2.

Any of about 10 teams could make the top 4 in 2023, and it won't take much for any of them to miss out...

Re Freo:

Fremantle had a 13-point win with 2 fewer scoring shots, at home (so arguably a loss at a neutral venue given strong HGA), followed by a 20-point loss with 10 fewer scoring shots away (so arguably a worse loss than the scoring margin suggested given Freo only generated 14 scoring shots), to teams that both had H&A percentages only just above 100% on the season. That indicates that they were two pretty poor performances in finals against two other teams that in turn were pretty average on the season.

People love trying to come up with complex reasons to obvious simple things that have an answer. Fremantle across their two most recent matches (any very relevant on form), arguably did not play up to even a top-8 team standard. Strange it hasn't been said so far!
Need some sugar for those grapes?
