Hope this isnt true but was speaking to a relative of a player manager last night and apparently Cotch is seriously considering retiring at the end of this year as his hammys are just about shot. Should note its not 'his' player manager, just 'a' player manager.

If true would free up some payment space.
Certainly would be the BIG news that Hawk suggested.

Was fortunate enough to go to the player sponsor training session this morning
Balme was asked if we could expect anything big through the off season he said like we all pretty much know that we are more or less tapped out from a cap standpoint and don’t have any big moves for the time being

Also when asked about Caracella departing he said club is in the process now of looking at options but are leaning towards getting someone expected through the doors instead of promoting someone from inside our 4 walls
No golden handshake for Grigga - assistant role for pulling the plug early and allowing us to pick up Pickett?
Sure Balmey would be the last person to let on if that was the case

To protect our younger, slighter midfielders in the VFL. It has worked a treat. The seconds are killing it and proving to be a brilliant incubator because of the likes of Weller.
I don't have any issue at all with us signing Weller, has virtually played for free and from all reports shown very good leadership for the boys in the VFL with his professionalism. Was always going to be up against it to play much senior footy.

Hmm perhaps they’ve got their eyes on someone , I reckon grigga will have no shortage of good offers and will,leave with plenty of our IP would have loved for him to stay , that said , would likely learn the craft with us then poq when the offers rolled in later

Yeah that's a good point. I was being slightly facetious with my initial question.

Added protection and leadership is never a bad thing. In saying that, our VFL side has been in pretty good shape for the last few years.

It wouldn't happen for some years to come but I can see Jack Riewoldt as a forward lines coach. He has an acute understanding of the dynamics of the game as well as being extremely articulate. When he retires from playing, I don't doubt he'll move straight into media. However, he seems to be combining playing and media very well now so coaching plus media should not be impossible.

Hopefully he would do better than Dermie at lelnorf as a forward's coach.

Edit: It may be the Aints actually.

Yeah, lol, came on board after their string of wins and has been there for the slide. Poison chalice much?
I was working there on his first day at the aints. Rolled up in thongs, and a t-shirt. Looked like he was going to the beach, not starting a new gig as a forward coach.
