    Amazingly found myself supporting GWS yesterday. Greene out makes them infinitely more likable. I still hate Cameron, Mumford and to a lesser extent Davis and Shaw, but Greene is by far the biggest...

  5. Re: Worst coaching tactics Iíve ever seen this year

    I'm pretty sure Dunkley wanted to stay in Melbourne. So the deal was if a Melbourne club nominated him Sydney would let him go. If an interstate club nominated him Sydney would take him.
