I guess Brisbane are being pragmatic given where they are and what they need to do to be competitive again.Don't you find it amazing that Brisbane is such a poor team yet clubs are throwing huge money on their players, such as Coates, Lodge and TPJ? If they were as good as the salaries they are commanding then why hasn't it translated into wins for the Donkeys? Why is Brisbane so eager to get rid of these guys? Shouldn't it be a warning to clubs that they are bad news?
Each of the guys you mentioned (I will add Milf in who was rumoured to be in Parra’s sights) are a different proposition.
Coates and Milf are in reserve grade for poor form and not going to be with them next year, so might as well try and get something now given that they are not going to make the finals. If a club came to us and asked for Siro for the rest of the year, we might consider that a good deal.
From all reports Lodge is a ‘model citizen’ these days so releasing him was purely to free up cash.
TPJ is the one that could be bad news, I agree. but the dogs are desperate, that is for sure!!
I think what it does show is how royally Bennett screwed them when he left!!
