So you really wish Hanners "all the very worst"?Yep I agree. That's why I posted above that deep down I really wish them & the Vic club they go to all the very worst.
Sounds bitter I know but who cares, the Vic club supporters of the team they've gone to clearly have shown they wish us all the worst.
Poor Mitch & Hanners.
Cry me a river Hawk & Saint supporters! F k em!
Do you want me to say what you want to hear? It's a general overall feeling. Not so much that they hurt themselves but the result of it for their fans. Suffer I say.So you really wish Hanners "all the very worst"?

I only really care for our players.
He's not our player anymore so due to the battle we have always had to retain players that either want more money or say they want to go home, I couldn't care if things don't work out for them. Works both ways. Everyone, including our own supporters, wished bad for Tippett. Players that leave for greater senior opportunities, good luck to them if it works out well but players like Buckley who left Brisbane because he thought it would be better in Vic with the Pies, I couldn't be any happier that he dodged 3 premierships with Brisbane while he was trying to win one with Collingwood.
Yeah huge contract!Weird.
Hanners was IMO the best player in our last premiership, gave his body to this club, was a tremendous player for a decade. I also think the Swans were more than happy to shed his huge contract once his form fell off a cliff. Felt like a pretty mutual parting of the ways.
Can't even begin to rationalize how you could wish someone like him "all the very worst".
Reckon there should be some sort of transfer fee that can be added to the salary cap? Atleast in AFL there's draft picks which usually get exchanged. If this was the NRL, we would get nothing for a player leaving lol. I've always thought if a contracted player wants to leave then there should be a transfer fee applied to it which can be added to the salary cap.I know, it sucks. And I don't get how that works when a young star that is developed by a team and is about to hit his peak, goes for less than he was drafted for... happens time and time again and makes no logical sense... you would think the club would get a bonus for their investment similar to soccer transfer fees...
It's almost like getting a lesser draft pick is a punishment for a player not wanting to stay at your club... which impacts the interstate clubs more so than Vic clubs... it's bullshit... and while I don't want cola back. There's no denying it helps to counteract that issue
This is why if Papley really does want to go home, we trade him the year before his contract is up to max his valueMinor difference Papley is under contract until 2023 while Jones was out of contract.
Assume you expect the club to hold a player against their will? Force them to sign on again.
