- Are there other teams?
Justin Reid: Thanks for meeting with us. We have an offer for you for Billy Frampton. We will offer you a future second round pick. How's that sound?Be interesting to watch the trade* talks (for Billy) between us and them.
Most the only players they've got who'd we want wouldn't be attainable and low pick is a pure lottery.
The only player I'd like is Milera but they'd be mad to let him go.
*assuming he asks for a trade
Chris Davies: What makes you think Billy wants to play for the Crows?
Reid: We think he will jump at the chance to play along side such champions of the game as Tex Walker, Josh Jenkins and Jordan Gallucci.
Davies: Bahahahahah..oh wait.
Reid: We also have a very attractive contract offer.
Davies: Well, I'll ask him but I don't think he'll be very keen. He's already got one you see.
Reid: Are you sure he's got one?
Davies: Oh yes it's very nice.
Reid: Can we have a look?
Davies: Of course not. Look, if it makes you feel better, you can have a chat to Billy but I wouldn't advise it.
[Billy and Reid go into another room.....10 minutes later, Reid emerges bleeding from his nose]
Reid: He head butted me.
Davies: I warned you.
Reid: He picked up my manilla folders and threw them across the room.
Davies: Did I mention he's mates with Peter Rohde?
Reid: He grabbed my permanent marker and wrote "w***er" on my forehead.
Davies: I see that. How far did negotiations get.
Reid: I told him I was from the Crows. He then asked if there were any cameras in the room. When I said "no" he went crazy.
Davies: But you were with him for 10 minutes.
Reid: He then locked me in a cupboard and ate my lunch.
Davies: So no contract?
Reid: I don't know. Is that his signature there? I can make out the capital F.
Davies: Yes, he's signed it "F*** you, F*** your club and F*** the Toyota Camry you rode in on. Where is he now? Um, is that your car in the car park?
Reid: Yes. Why? Oh God what's he doing?
Davies: Not easy to tell from here but as far as I can make out he has slashed your tyres and is about to take a dump on your front seat.
Reid: I don't understand, is that a "no"?
Davies: I think it's a "maybe". What I suggest is that you try again tomorrow but next time bring that Megastar Josh Jenkins with you so the 2 of you can mention that Josh is on $750,000 per year and that you're offering Billy $175,000. That should do it.
Reid:Great idea see you tomorrow...... Can you call me a cab?
