this is the irony of players leaving one club for a bit of coin that i don’t get.
crameri as an example if you work it out on this basis, he got 50 k more to go to the dogs for 4 years.
If it had of worked out better sure he may have gotten another contract at the dogs.
it didn’t and now the dogs don’t feel any need to keep him around longer than his supposed usefullness.
whereas if he’d stayed at essendon, for 50k less, he’d prolly have gotten another contract with us purely out of guilt/loyalty, and prolly better coin than what he’ll get now.
Very few players actually look at it in that context, maybe they should.
