Sky news already saying he has signed with the Suns, if it is on tv it must be true.

New keyboards aren't that expensive. I'm guessing Brooke just doesn't leave the house. LOL
 
Ablett is doing the same crap they all did.

Waiting for the team they're at the offer half what GC is. Why bother???

It's just an excuse to spit in their face and laugh at their offer. It's disgusting.

Maybe you didn't understand the post.

If money is the factor he's already gone. Waiting for the Cats to offer half is just humiliation.

The salary cap has them chained down.

I,truly,believe,he,will,do,the,following.

I,think,he,will,sign,a,very,flexible,contract,.with,Gold,Coast
One,year,then,flexible,for,2nd,year,maybe.
But,,he,will,return,to,Geelong,after,it.
He,is,26,now.
One,or,two,years,with,GoldCoast
Back,atGeelong,aged,28.

Cats,can,spend,next,year,re-building,again.

Abletts,support,of,,new,AFL,team,will,be,seen,as,that,,,,,support.
Plus,its,financially,good,for,him.

Prediction:One,to,two,years,fliexible,contract,withGoldCoast
Then,back,home,toGeelong,to,play,another,5years,for,Cats,finishing,career,there.

The truth is Geelong don't need Ablett.
 
Trading him at his top value and getting to release all their pressure on their salary cap will be a blessing.

What a joke it was him hogging the ball and doing nothing with it on Friday night.

His sloppy handballs and rushed kicks were nowhere near as damaging as Swan looking to spot up a teammate with a nice chip pass.
 
You watch how much better guys like Bartel and Selwood get with more time on the ball. Hogan can step up and be the next big link in the chain, he just needs consistant time in the midfield.
 
It's obvious their structure didn't work with Mooney,Pods and Hawkins in the same team.
 
One bad game against the Pies and they're a writeoff??? No way.. This dynasty lives on.

Exactly,Wortel.
Well,said.

Geelong,got,hammered,afew,times,in,the,past,3,years.And,went,on,to,win,two,flags.
People,r,crazy,writing,them,off.

They,can,now,re-build,a,structure,new,blood,too.
Plus,Ablett,whilst,good,at,bursting,from,a,pack,in,3,strides,,isnt,that,productive.,Not,a,gamewinner.
People,like,Riewoldt,win,games.They,actually,do,something,more,than,.burst,from,a,pack.
Ablett,got,40,touches,but,what,did,he,reallydo,with,them?
Not,a,great,deal.

Have to disagree with your reading of Ablett's game on Friday night. Sloppy handballs etc? Gee whiz. I don't like the Cats, but if it wasn't for G Ablett the Pies would have won by over a hundred.
He singlehandedly gave his forwards shots on goal, and too often the latter let him down with bad set-shot kicking. His game was awesome and I think he'll give the Gold Coast a mighty boost.
Istidaad kicking strongly, he's 2 lengths clear, Crawl gets out from a well back and old Mustard is grinding home... Hang on, Treasury Notes gets out from the back and she'll blouse them all!

I always have to laugh when the arm chair critics pot a great of the game.
 
Wortel, I really have to wonder whether you live in reality sometimes, or just some sort of drug induced haze. Why would Ablett want to spit in Geelong's face and laugh at their offer? What an idiotic take on events.

Muffin

I,think,Wortel,says,some,things,in,a,lighthearted,tone,but,most,Cats,were.,frustrated,withAblett.
He,has,a,right,to,take,his,time,like,any,other,player,does.
He,did,unsettle,staff,coach,players,all,year,though.

Im,tipping,two,years,at,Gold,Coast,help,them,build,then,back,to,Geelong,to,play.

Ablett should jump off the sinking ship
GEELONG are going down the ladder
Why not take the cash and set himself up for life

As far as winning the ball and breaking the pack Ablett is 2nd to none.
 
Collingwood didn't tag him heavily but they managed to win the ball back on the turnover many times.

Don't go telling me how good his ball skills are because I've never bought into it.

Muffin Man it's the same thing Bock and Brown did. Both waited for the maximum offer and it was less than half of what GC is offering so they didn't think twice.
 
He shouldn't run them around he should just say goodbye.
