    good question. Maybe Storm don't have the cash this season to pick him up early, given they still have the big 3 plus half a dozen other rep players currently on their roster. Myles would be coming for next to nothing given the Eagles are paying a fair slab of his salary. If Billy retires and Cooper goes that plus the cap increase will give them plenty to play with.

    I think Myles joining the Storm rules out a midseason switch at this stage, though i think it might have been an option right untill Myles joined them.

    Even if Cronk retires, he will be counted in the Support Staff section of their salary cap which comes in from 2018 season.

    The justification was that teams are over reliant on their leagues clubs and this is to stop them overspending and going broke. Yet the governing body making this ruling see nothing wrong with selling the games soul to online betting companies

    Hi. My name is Bob (aka Cooper) I'm a business consultant. I have nothing to do with the football department. My fees are $1M per season for that but I can help you with some halves coaching for free if you like?

    I appreciate he is retiring, but i can't really see Cronk caravanning like a grey nomad.

    Agree with your point although over the last couple of years have gone from wtf to meh no great loss. His game breaking abilities have been consumed by cheap errors and low impact minutes. For our style to evolve into anything different we need to change some players in key positions

    Imho we also need to replace tolman and Eastwood and start with a new look front row. As for the backs that's a story for another thread

    Big Kas. You were and always will be a Dogs legend but the move works out well for both parties. Catch ya!

    Tbh with signing Woods it is crazy getting rid of Kas.

    Woods, Klemmer, Tolman & Graham all play massive minutes. Tolman & Graham provide no impact off the bench and one of them should of made way for Woods.

    IMO opinion Des & Dib first to go along with Lichaa, Eastwood and one of Tolman or Graham
