Barrett on radio basically saying GC starting point will be, get a lesser player back and Cats pay the salary of that player.
Be it coming direct from Geelong or via 3rd club trade
This is due to fact GC has front loaded Abletts salary (and would have only been on $600k next year)
They want compensation for that outlay.
With Cats already tight for salary cap and with Smith, Hopper and co in sights surely can’t get it done. Although salary cap increase perhaps does give them room.
