Thats definitely a lot of good buys surely paying overs for them all.Burton and Naden too and they'd have to be paying them overs to play there. Have to be near the limit of their salary cap.
Backyard breeders? Perhaps not. That would imply that despite their poor breeding programs they still do take local stock. I’d say there is an element of this perhaps.Bred not bought. Is their mantra.
Kind of similar to a footballing version of the retail outlet “the reject shop” maybe that’s being a bit harsh on guys like JAC and Burton, never mind, will be interesting to see how they go next year. They may even surprise a few who knows, they actually haven’t played to bad the last couple of weeks, despite losing. Time will tell I guess.Backyard breeders? Perhaps not.

However I like to think they enrich their stock with puppy mill offcasts. The pups reared in large breeding programs that with the slightest flaw are cast aside. Yes the dogs that others don’t want or are let go from the mill for way too much $$$.
Seriously you can talk about talent all you like it’s culture that breeds success (no pun intended). And with guys like tpj, Vaughan, Naden, Duffy n co they are hardly doing themselves any favors imo.
More like Tigers 2.0Kind of similar to a footballing version of the retail outlet “the reject shop” maybe that’s being a bit harsh on guys like JAC and Burton, never mind, will be interesting to see how they go next year.

I think the Dogs will pass the Tigers in terms of potential just on signings alone.He’s leaving the 15th team for the 16th. Tigers have more upside, not a smart chap.
Yeah sure they get a lot of new faces at dogs next year, but I don’t see a consistent cornerstone player apart from Burton.
Great post!I'll preface what I'm about to say by saying that have bought dome talent and should naturally improve.
That said I'm not overly impressed with their recruitment drive on a whole. It reeks of being desperate and taking who you can get rather than being strategic. Though to be fair you maybe have to be that way when the club is struggling.
People raved about their signings this year but I saw
Flanagan as a youngster ill equipped to be the main main.
Hetherington a firebrand who people live for his agression but a walking suspension with an output that doesnt match his reputation.
Cotric, a great winger being paid centre money when he has no passing game.
Allen, a player that looks good in a strong team but little more.
I rate Burton and Ado Carr is a great winger (who the have paid massive over for)
Dufty, Naden, TPJ and Vaughan (who I'm presuming they land soon) all have behavioural issues. Whilst the first three run hot and cold.
Pair them with acoach not renowned for discipline and culture and things look risky.
All this and not addressing the biggest area of concern in hooker.
I mean if you can get everyone playing to their potential you have a good team but I see lots of question marks.
