I thought they might of dropped the marquee status from Donnellan and given it to Hooker. 3 seasons now Hooker has outperformed Donnellan.

I guess they risk pissing Donnellan off and losing Ebony too.

Money is money. West Coast have 2 slots for marquee players. Wonder who else they’ll get.

It’s a shame these girls are in a position where 30-50k makes such a big difference.

The third party deals in the AFLW are fantastic for the players.

I understand that they have to keep everyone contracted on small money for short terms so that when new teams come in they can access the good players and the foundation squads don't hoard the talent.

But, I'm quite disenfranchised by this. There won't be any actual compensation for losing the second best player in the competition.

Good for her to look after her future. Make it while the sun shines.

It'll take a while for the AFLW to grow a soul while they are trying to expand the competition, each time a little girl gets a player's name on their top that player could bounce somewhere else.

The fact that hooker has been offered more and longer but is still weighing things up is at least a positive sign for our clubs culture.
Agree with the poster that said it’s kind of shame tho cause she’s definitely out performed Donnellan over the journey so far.

Have the crows lost anyone??
Nope (unless there are some retirememts).


On a personal note, and on a team note, losing Hooker hurts worse than losing Neale.

(I am currently cycling through the 7 stages of grief. Right now I'm angry. How could she say, "I have 31 of the best aunties for my daughter Alice, and I love this club" on the one hand, then say, "I feel like I could really be part of the family here" about the weags??)

YOU ALREADY HAD A FAMILY!!!!

By the end of this trade/sign period the list has to be trimmed to 22 + 1 rookie, so we only have room for 5 more. I hope Kellie Gibson is one, but I'm not feeling it, nor Parris Laurie.

But it does mean that if the Slime poach their full contingent of eight players as they seem to confident they'll do, most of them may have been for the delist group anyway.
