Apparently GWS has ruled themselves out of the race. I'd still like to get him across, without knowing any details and not jumping to any conclusions about his off-field stuff.

22 year old with lots of cash, average typical male, in the media spotlight far too often, that's all.

ST Kilda have ruled themselves out now. "Damaged Goods" is the story between the lines by the looks of things.

Richmond would be quietly sitting back and watching this with a big ol' smile. I can see him coming back, cap in hand, and Richmond saying "Of course you can come back... at 300k a year."

It certainly looks like his 'reputation' and maybe his arrogance has seen some clubs scared off.

Will be a really interesting outcome to this.... :roll:
2016 Pity the fool
2015 Sponsor of Matt "A Whole Lotta" Rosa...
2014 Sponsor of the Ever Wounded Warrior (sigh!!) - Beau "The Enforcer" Waters....

Made it to the big dance, just couldn't do the boogie! :-((

No one wants to pay the money he reckons he deserves, and that jail house salute has clubs weary of him.

He has shot himself in the foot.

Well, I for one think we should be actively talking to his management - I'd be more than happy to throw him a lifeline and pick him up in the PSD. :twisted:
Proud 2017 sponsor of Scott Lycett, Tom Barrass and Jonathon Giles - the big guys have landed.

Proud 2016 sponsor of Nobody. Because I couldn't find the thread. :-(
Proud 2015 sponsor of Scott Lycett. The future has arrived.

I don't think it is his off field reputation that has everyone walking away, it's that his manager has priced him well above what everyone thinks he is worth.

All part of his cunning strategy; to allow WCE to snare him in the PSD.
Think of it as a straight swap for Cousins. :twisted:

However, the voting at the bottom of the page of this Richmond Fans' article is that 78% think Richmond should let him go.


This made me smile:

The Tigers' season has ended in relative disaster since the hope of that first bounce at the MCG nine days ago. Those tens of thousands of fans who turned up to watch the Tigers blow a five-goal lead against a side that finished ninth deserved better.

The Curse of the 9 continues.

Seven years later it's interesting to review this thread.

It's like the old addage: "If you're poor and have Mental Health Issues, then you're a 'nutjob', but if you're rich people just call you 'Eccentric' or 'Colourful'."
Dusty is still a dickhead, but people overlook that because he's good at football.

I'd actually have grave concerns for the lad. What's he going to do when footy is finished, people nolonger worship him and overlook his flaws, and he has nothing to do but spend his money on God knows what.
