    Re: ‘It’s nice to know you’re wanted’: Josh Dunkley opens up after failed trade to Essendon

    I found the formal use of the club nickname quite off putting. The "Bulldogs"....like we are just one of 18 to him now.
    Not sure how he got to this place, must've been brewing for a while, hopefully we can get the best out of him while hes still around. An anointed leader doing this still irks me somewhat but we played it well.

    It makes it seem that he'd checked out and that he's going to have to mentally get back on board, doesn't it.

    Will be interesting to see what happens with the leadership group. I don't really want him involved, but the players still might.

    I liked the 'Whiteley' mis-spelling by SquirrelGrip. Not even Michael Clarke has used that one yet.

    Re: ‘It’s nice to know you’re wanted’: Josh Dunkley opens up after failed trade to Essendon

    Re-reading the article I can see nothing wrong with what Dunks said. There was no indication he will be hawking himself around after the next season. He will be doing his very best. I am sure Bevo will be giving him more times in the guts too which will please him. Maybe an increase on his contract before it expires in 2022 will be the go. If success comes our way deep in the finals series heck who would want to leave. Quietly confident he will be a doggie for many years.

    A 3 year contract extension wasn’t enough recognition for Dunks?

    I get it from Dunks. He signed that deal before he broke out in 2019, and probably feels underpaid.

    I mean, its the exact same stuff that Jake Stringer tried to pull in 2016 (allegedly), which I’m sure is totally lost on Josh, but I understand it.

    He should sack his manager then.

    He signed that deal after playing plenty of time as a mid/forward hybrid. Doing his role for the team didn’t seem like such an issue for him then.

    He should sack his manager anyway. Imagine paying a guy to negotiate a deal on your behalf that doesn’t and can’t really possibly get done.

    Pickering strikes me as the type who’ll take any mfers money if they’re just giving it away.

    I just hope Dunkley's comment isn't some sly back-hander to Treloar.

    Having read his blog I don't think he's capable of that sort of complexity in his thinking.

    Did Dunkley wanting to leave make us chase Treloar ?
    If so he just made it harder to get into our midfield.
    Backfired you might say.

    Happy for one of those clubs to take him so long as it is not Essendon. I don't think he will be around any longer than he needs to. A 1st and 2nd next year. I just think the damage has been done.

    Dunkley is dead to me. Of course he doesn't want to be here but we made a stand and said you pricks aren't coming after our contracted guys. Think this was much bigger than Dunkley personally. I'm sure we fully expect to lose Dunkley next year and we have named the price. We needed to make a stand against opposition list managers coming hard at our elite players in the future. Glad Dunkley will be made to play through next year.

    Two first rounders and he's yours scumbags.
