Been great for the club, enjoyed watching him play. LOL Geelong for letting him go.
If he played another 3 seasons with us (required to hit 100), it would mean he’d have spent his last 5 seasons playing for Essendon. That would be during his kids formative years. He might also stay involved post career. That would all influence his kids as well.
I’m hopeful that if Goddard has any sons (no idea) they’ll choose us.
Hell, North have the problem that because they’re in Sydney, Longmire’s kids joined the Sydney academy. They may choose Sydney over North if they’re good enough. So kids switch allegiances.
