    On the broader issue of free agency, I agree with Paul Roos that it really helps entrench the haves and the have-nots.

    i think doing something to combat just how important the draft has become is really good for the comp, and I think the 'have' teams would be better off under the old system of the draft being basically the only way to construct a team, given they can send out a whole load more scouts than the 'have-nots' can't. so i disagree with roosey. but maybe i'm wrong. but i dunno know, it gives the 'have nots' another way of getting players. they'll gain some, they'll lose some. 'haves' will gain some and lose some. under a system in which every team (bar 4....) can't spend more than a certain figure on wages, i struggle to believe that it'll change dynamics dramatically. it does mean though, imo, a 'have not' team is more likely to build a team capable of winning a premiership, and hence attract FA's than the old system. the western bulldogs, or some other 'have not' team could have matched or gone past our offer to goddard, but they can't match the number of scouts we send out. (now that we actually send scouts out, instead of just having one guy in the recruiting department who hey btw has a role in the coaches box on gameday........)
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Would laugh if Tippett himself got suspended.

    New twist in Tippett probe

    Could be some trouble for all parties is the above is true. Off the books payments is of a dodgyness we expect from clubs like Carlton.

    North and Blues were very interested in Rodan, but Melb got him.

    Neeld a fan of recycling it seems.

    Ridonculous.

    Melbs either offered him considerably more money than any of the others, or they offered him a gauranteed starting spot.
