if he does go, I hope it is to the Warriors

Well saidIn terms of ability, Taupau should have gone before AFB.
In terms of being a better human/clubman, Taupau is the keeper.
I was keen on Taupau leaving due to his value for money but now, with AFB going, his stocks increase and we are free to spend AFBs money elsewhere to strengthen our depth.
This simple redirection of salary cap could help us plug our depth issues and am now excited about the future.
Ps - Taupau always plays better when AFB is out and he’s forced to be the top dog.
Bring on 2021.
he is a leader which is good. Stick by my preference of AFB on the playing field, AFB has been far better but a silver lining of him leaving is that Marty is a genuine leader, and as you said, a decent human being. AFB does have bikie links and did go to jail for assault on a partner so maybe we backed the right horse long term...I hate this thread. If I was Marty I would find it offensive. These players are people with feelings and some of the posters on here are incredibility insensitive. Players are paid what the club had agreed to pay them. Don't blame the players for their salary blame the club. BTW I reckon Marty is worth the money he is paid and IMO is a keeper. Not only is he a good player, he is a good club man and a decent human being. Sadly players with all of these attributes are becoming rare commodities with more and more self entitled individuals making the headlines. Ditch this crap thread!
