Hugh Greenwood departure hysteria.
Playing devils advocate here.
Thought Hugh Greenwood agreed to be part of the delisting. And then took the money and security. Player loyalty ???
Gold coast obviously didn`t see him in their long term plans because of his age etc.
Freed up a spot on the list for a potential up and comer and freed up some salary cap space. Rowel King Miller wouldn`t come cheap to keep them there.
Maybe Gold Coast knew a potential deal from a rival club would happen and this was their way of satisfying both clubs. North Melboune hardly a destination club considering they finished last this year. Not sure Greenwood is a player who will enable them to take the next step I reckon. 
Greenwood was with the Crows and requested a trade to Gold Coast....chasing the money ???  Brandon Ellis another one chasing the Gold Coast money.
Maybe the coach wants players that can get the football and constructively use it rather than looking for the tackle when his stars are having a spell on the bench.
Just sayin

    West Coast tried to get in first, but he chose North Melbourne as they now rank higher than West Coast as a destination club.
    Unless your over 40.

    Haha. Freo`s back !!!
    I have missed you. 
    Everytime I need a "pick me up" I go to tackling you on footy issues as I know I am in for an easy kill. Haha.
    See "brand Fyfe has finally grown up and got a hair cut. Haha.
    Now needs to spend some of his million dollar contract to get his ears pinned back.
    Don`t worry about our aging list. Part of our sponsorship strategy. Attracting new sponsors such Regis Aged Care. Haha

    Det your love affair with Fyfe is a bit of a worry.
    He’s been a great player but his best days are behind him. We unlike your winged Eagles have plenty of youth coming through not to mention draft picks.
    You are in for a five year flogging my friend.
  • detonatordetonator    4,375 posts
    I don’t think we will ever see “brand Fyfe” play another game.
    He is too damaged. Shoulder….concussions….ego etc 

    Our winged veterans may have one more roll of the dice in them…..roll of their wheelchairs that is. Haha

    Eagles have selected a rebounding half back flanker/wingman in the draft. Campbell Chesser.
    Have watched his tape and interviews.
    Just what we needed. A running halfback who has a back ground in athletics.
    Shepherd, Hurn, are dinosaurs so now time to get some run in this team.
    I’m excited !!!!
    See Dockers have picked up a couple of local kids who grew up supporting the eagles. Surprise surprise. The Dockers obviously want to bring people into the club who have celebrated success even if it was from their lounge rooms. 
    No “Ross the Boss” at the helm so these kids will flourish. Haha

    Det you really are a clown when it comes to AFL.
    Media says Freo should pick locals so they won’t go back to home state.
    Freo pick two locals and odds are they are either Eagles or Freo supporters but who really cares.
    Eagles pick a Victorian player.
    So who is right.
    My opinion it’s a lottery,,if I had my way I would have picked the bloke who the Lions got and had all his young Mates with him and they jumped all over him.
    That’s what it’s all about.

    Getting a response from you Freo is like taking candy from a baby. Haha.
    I just throw out the lure and BANG !!!!
    Our bloke Campbell “Chesson Football” Chesser is going to be a superstar. 
    Footy’s back !!! Haha
  • freodockersfreodockers    2,667 posts
    He will need to be a “superstar” Det.
    In two years time he will be your only backline player. You’ve got Pertacelli I suppose but he avoids contact at all costs, so not much good as a back man.
    Your club is a train wreck waiting to happen.
    West Coast and it’s supporters like you refuse to acknowledge it.
    One last tilt at the premiership LOL !!!
    How the f$@ck is West Coast going to beat the likes of Melbourne, Western Bulldogs etc etc.
    You will be watching from the sidelines in shame for a very long time my friend.
    Ten years plus IMO.
    Excited now.

    Come on Deto, keep your head up, you also recruited Robert Whiley, where do you think he will play? He could go forward and hold Kennedys zimmer frame while he has a kick or he could be used down back to prop up a spot or do you think he could receive a few taps from the poster boy in the center and run with Kelly, the are well matched for speed.

    Maybe we should just leave poor old Detto alone.
    He thought he would throw a hook in the water to get a bite. Unfortunately he got spooled.
    He’s used to fishing with hundred pound line, now he only has 2 pound line and keeps getting bitten off.
    The fishing is certainly getting better down Freo way Det, maybe you should join in with the strength.

    Even funnier than the eagles waiting for another ten years is the Fremantle sh.t fish winning 2 in the next four years. Then again half that statement might be right about the womans team. They are a lot more sucessful tha their male counterparts

    That is "Chesserlenko`s" actual guernsey that he will be playing in.
    He is so fast, the AFL made him wear it to slow him down and give the likes of Daicos and "thunder thighs" Andrew Brayshaw a chance of catching him. Haha.
    =)) =))

    Spanking the fact you are predicting WC will win a flag in the next ten years is exactly why they won’t.
    Arrogance at its best.
    With the relinquishing of Subi oval as your nest and the effects of covid draining your funds it is now a level playing field for all clubs. WC will no longer be able to influence results with their big stick. They are now just like any other club.
    Scary part is they haven’t bottomed out yet.
    That is why it will be 10 years plus.
    Who would have thought Richmond in the eighties would see the drought they did.
    Freo will be four Cups before you tossers raise your next.
    There you go I have said it.
  • detonatordetonator    4,375 posts
    Touched a nerve there Spin by the looks of it. Take a chill pill Freo. Haha.
    I will send Willie Nelson around to share a little something to calm you down. Haha
    Footy’s Back !!!
    Go boys

    I want predicting it only quoting what you were Saying Freo.didnt have to put much bait on the hook to get a bite Deto. But after you saying the Freo sh.t fish will win 4 before we get one . I suspect you may have been hanging out with Cath Mguigan
  • freodockersfreodockers    2,667 posts
    Ahhh the banter, you got to love it.
    Wouldn’t bother commenting if it wasn’t for you two clowns.
    Get the cricket over and done with and bring back the footy.

    PS don’t understand WC selections last night.
    Why didn’t they pick Michael Randall.
    Would have been a seem less transition into WC.
  • spinkingspinking    3,804 posts
    Freo even without the deto and I you wouldn’t be able to help yourself.

    Thought the Chesser very large jumper fit was a good move but apparently some don't have a sense of humour

    See the Dockers have again dipped into their well of prospective coaches and again picked an Eagle to show them the way. Mark Lecras back there again.
    Fremantle did explore options apparently.
    Shopping list was to get one of their ex Premiership players but a line was quickly put through that for obvious reasons.
    Then one of their own who has kicked 80 goals or more in a calendar year…..again fell short.
    Oh well. Haha

    Don’t worry about us clown.
    Have a look in your own backyard.
    Piss (some can’t apparently) drugs and major reshuffles.
    Not necessarily in that order.
    Signs are terrible.
