    I'll say, this story even got put on Dogs Day before I moved it onto the AFL board. It's obviously very exciting news.....to some.

    Yep, each to their own. I don't mind seeing a guy who's left for greener pastures fail or have no success.
    The curse is dead.

    Didn't he play on Brad Edwards ? A mid?
    Same old same old. I'm sure Liam will tease with the good game here or there, but you'd think he'd put in a good one first up.

    I take your point. I take exception when a player doesn't perform for your club then turns it on for his new team.

    Maybe you shouldn't necessarily place all of the blame on the player.

    Taking time out during the morning of our first NAB Cup match to post on something quite topical (a turncoat fails in his first outing yesterday for a new club) does not mean we are not interested in how the team goes today. It is all grist for the mill.
    Resign Jong, today.

    Hopefully turncoats, Tom Boyd & Koby Stevens have better days

    Well if footy is a business( as we hear it is) an employee is paid to play to the best of his ability, and if he performs better under his new employer then he deserves to be scrutinised.
    FWIW I don't subscribe to the theory that football is a business, but that's what we're fed consistently .

    Me either. I also think the media/footballers/clubs misunderstand the word "professional" as purely someone who receives money and not as an attitude to your craft or profession.

    Footy is one of the few things in life that I can let my heart rule my head and not regret it later. It's a great emotional outlet.

    It's also up to the employer to get the best out of an employee. Football is a a fairly un-standard workplace where the players performance is also reasonably dependent upon the clubs ability to train, teach and get the best out of them. If this doesn't occur then while certainly blame can be placed on the player to varying degrees, the role of the club needs to be looked at too.

    Jones 3 kicks in 3 quarters.

    I wonder how long until Carlton members realise they've been fed BS all pre season.
