Yes we would've paid overs for Frizzell but most people would acknowledge teams normally have to pay more to attract a player rather than keep a player. I for one don't see how Jacko is supposedly playing better than Jake when Trbojevic is averaging almost 50m per game more and twice as many post contact metres.Frizell wouldn't of signed for us unless we offered him ~900k or he had no other options (which wouldn't happen for a player of Frizell's calibre). I'd say it's more 700k (with veteran allowance, which I believe is up to 200k) vs 900k. We couldn't afford to lose Jackson, especially at the time we re-signed him, imo. Jackson's playing better than J. Trbojevic this year and he's on 950k. Let's see how Jackson goes in a competitive team. I think Jackson's been one of our best so far this year.
Jacko is a good tackler, we know that but what else does he offer besides being a good tackle, I mean I wouldn't even say he's a great defender given he's got about as much lateral quickness as an ocean liner
