    I care.

    I had a feeling it was coming We need some positive news and now time to play a debutant this week. Everyone needs to remember JJ's first 2 months was excellent many players on our list have struggled all year.

    If it's $650K per year, Barrett won't be speculating about anything. That's a fair price and I'd imagine it's unders compared to what his manager was hoping to squeeze out of the market.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Quite funny how going back no one cared who got what as long as the players stayed now we have been manipulated by the media speculation in the last few years about how much money etc etc , boils down to the club offered what they thought was reasonable and the player signed.
    I hate how the media makes a story out of a story , these journalists are sports journos not money managers , stick to the sport not personal stuff. Just say he signed for 5 years and leave it at that . The AFLs job to watch wages not their business or ours.
    I certainly wouldn't want my wage all over the papers .. Attracts robbers etc.

    Hooray! Some good news finally!

    Hopefully this can be a turning point for us

    Sensational news. Some people have short memories. He is a unique player. Nearly impossible to replace.

    In the prelim he was instrumental in the crucial play of the game in the last quarter with the line bursting speed that resulted in a team lifting euphoric goal. When no one could find any space in the GF he kept running and creating. Without JJ we don't win the Premiership.

    So if we believe the media, now JJ is staying, Jake Stringer must be leaving then.

    If anyone believes the media they need their head read.
    I think they put 100 stories out to make you read them and only one is right.
    All about click bait they get paid for how many read the stories , wrong or right doesn't come into it , have you ever seen an AFL journalist apologise for a wrong story ??
    They are too busy gloating over the one they got right and forget the rest.
