  1. Suspect by back end of deal it''ll be a declining chunk of cap.
  2. There is risk for the Pies if Grundy suffers a serious injury or becomes injury prone. Advantage for Pies is that if he does avoid injury they will likely be paying Grundy less dollars than his market value in back years of contract if salary cap keeps increasing. Grundy gets security but sacrifices maxxing contract value in back end years of contract.
  3. Interesting to see how they handle the intermittent smoke haze. Can't be healthy for players to be training in it. Both Brumbies and Raiders have moved their pre season out of Canberra until it stops being enveloped in smoke.
  4. Strangely he is no club's recruiting boss!
  5. Birdman are definitely in the discussion! Also in discussion for best live band.
  6. I quite like Maher and Murphy combo but I'm only a very occasional SEN listener ie trade week. SEN has invested heavily in Lyon and Watson, Whately and now Russell. Its yet to be seen if that investment will generate ratings boost that allows a commercial return on that investment. The AFL/NRL divide makes national sports radio/tv shows more of a challenge than in more homogeneous sporting markets ie US. Be interesting to see what ratings SEN generate outside of Victoria and how they monetise that with national advertisers or insert local.
  7. With so many teams having f/s or academy players mooted to be Top 30 in 2020 draft I reckon this Freo pick will be part of a trade to a points hunting team.
  8. I think its a quasi registration process to cover insurance and payment.
  9. Jurrah Nm 26 in yellow and blue. Just lined up on wing at centre bounce.
  10. Goal to Jurrah! Possibly could have let it go through for a goal! First game for Wanderers apparently. Liam Patrick also playing.
  11. Still has skills and speed. Intermittently applying defensive pressure! Hopefully the fact he is back playing footy is sign that he has got his life sorted off field.
  12. Shaun Smith should not have to apply for a disability pension. The game, the industry, needs to take care of past players suffering physically or mentally due to their time in the game. So many fans of the game decry changes to the game to protect the head and the delicate brain inside it but if anyone with that view reads the reality of Shaun Smith's existence and does not come to an acceptance then they're beyond hope. There must be plenty of recent and current day players looking to their future and worrying about whether they'll pay a high price for concussions during their playing days. Some will, some won't. Jordan Lewis would be one looking forward with some anxiety. In 2010 he was knocked senseless in a game against the Bulldogs, came back on the field in that game then played the next week and played like his reactions were off the pace.
