Coz Adelaide and every club is happy to poach players from other clubs. It's life!
Did you use that pick for Aish?
That'll show him!
Yes, I've recently discovered the Farmdale RAM. Good drop.
To be honest, I don't mind the Fraser and Griggs $30 beer slabs as well.
Probably already been said.
Living in Adelaide?
Plenty Victorians want to sing we've got the power to win though. It's not a SA problem.
What about it?
If you cant find anything to do in Adelaide you were a boring campaigner to begin with
Doesn't Crows have a pay scale that it is stringent on and partly why it is losing their best players, iirc 700k-ish is what your teir 1 players get and flows down from there? Iirc there was some horn blowing from the crows in this regard of keeping their cap managment under tight screws and finishing top.
So Danger says family but really its family and an extra 150k pa, Davis left and was paid more, Bock paid more, Tippett a lot more, Cameron likely to get a large increase...
Crows generally have a fit in or F$#k off policy when it comes to paying overs.
Port are willing to Spend $$ to keep players it wants, Adelaide are proud of the fact they dont.
Now why are they leaving because Adelaide are tightarses.
You have your location as Melbourne.
GC can only go up. We would need some extra teams for them to finish much lower.
Not a fan of Pie Floaters.
... just wanted to see if it worked
That's why they re-listed Sam Shaw so he could continue to access medical treatment for the after effects of concussion. Didn't need to as he was never going to play again but went out of their way to help him.
Doesn't seem like a club that treats players like shit.
Lol “Adelaide are proud of the fact they don’t”
Have fun with that
I think Tippett was our highest paid player when he left.
I live in Geelong not the most desirable destination, but it suits me. But I'd prefer Adelaide over Melbourne to live for sure. Melbourne has become way too congested. 1million to over 4million and rising, it's crazy busy now. But then there is family. I always think someone in their twenties should live away from home no matter what the career. It's healthy. Move back closer when starting a family.
As far as I'm aware, those rankings aren't tailored for seperate demographics. What may be extremely livable for a baby boomer may be the opposite for a gen Y.
I have no doubt that many would find Adelaide a very comfortable place to live, but I don't think it's a stretch to suggest that Melbourne is much more interesting for a financially comfortable gen Y.
It is not that Adelaide is a shithole . It is the fact that compared to Melbourne most players would prefer to live on Melbourne .
Players have been going home for years .
Nothing will change this
If I was born and bred in South Australia, joined a Victorian club and that club kept calling themselves the pride of Victoria and the team for all Victorians I think I can understand why that would annoy me, as well as annoy the members of my family that still live in SA.
I don't think the crows have really thought this through but for schadenfreude reasons I'm happy for them to leave it as is.
7th in the most liveable cities poll, lol good luck paying for your overpriced housing.
