@WERRIDEE, did you read the article? Do you understand his position and context? Do you still have the same opinion?

 

Yes he was almost finished due to his injuries he owes the club.

VDB to Swans

Newman to Roos

Preuss to Dees

Maybe a swap of 3rd or 4th round picks with Dees to get the better of the swaps!

Players that tackle and play as hard as Vanders are worth their weight in gold. The old cliche they make others walk taller holds true based on my limited experience as a small, light framed footballer. A couple more like Vanders in the team would be more than welcome. I'll hate to see him traded, and the club should do everything it can to convince him to stay.

He doesn't "owe" the club anything. He's played out his contract, if he leaves we will get something in return. That's the way it works. Get a grip man. That sort of talk is purile.

If the FD are cool with him leaving, does he owe you your emotional investment in him still?

Why would the club be cool with it?

BS He's played a handful of games in 2 years we are likely to get very little for him due to this. HE OWES US SELFISH IMO

Because they're a mature organisation and understand that investment in people doesn't guarantee them a return in this particular climate.

More practically, they understand that a player needs to look after themselves long term......and then there is the humanistic side of...bloke has lost his father, practicalities of being close to home etc etc...

AND,  your opinion is fine that you think he is selfish for that.. I just wanted to check I had that correct.

He’s actually from the South Coast where his family is and where he lost his dad last year and moving to Sydney would make it much easier to visit the inherited business he is running. You don’t know him, you don’t know his situation and you need to show some empathy.

As I said earlier,empathy is granted but if the MFC does not get compensated sufficiently then I will take it as a sign that Vanders is not attached the club that has helped him through a tough time and really should be subject to criticism. He needs to make sure there is a deal that benefits us if we are showing him compassion.

you reckon that is fair enough?

His father died in Tathra according to the reports.I know Tathra and the South Coast very well-go there each year from Melbourne.If Vanders moves to Sydney I can’t see how that is easier to go to Tathra from Sydney to look after his father’s business.Because he could fly from Melbourne to Merimbula , hire a car and drive to Tathra in an hour.

He ha been injured for the better part of two years...

No, I don’t hold him accountable for the compensation Mahoney and co. can procure.

The South Coast is generally more accessible from Sydney and I don’t think it is outrageous to relocate for the reasons he would relocate for.

And that is all I will say, this is deflating; judging the motives of people based on so little and asking for the kind of loyalty you wouldn’t ask of a colleague or a friend.
