Either way JHF is in the position of power and obviously has seem pretty sound advise to ensure he maximises his next contract either way it goes. A bit different to say a Rachele who signed an extension ages ago and from his point of view has left $$$$$ on the table......great deal for the Crows.


Out this week with a hammy... hmmm

Jason Horne-Francis missed the R9 game v Port with hammy tightness after traveling to Adelaide without the club’s knowledge. The No.1 draft pick flew to SA after returning from Perth with the team & was spoken to by management upon his return. @Samedmund

    It is the best time of year to fly interstate without the club knowing though.

    I didn't see 360 tonight but I just watched the story about North that was on tonight’s episode on YouTube. It's obviously a bad look when people resign like this, especially when one of them spent 17 years at the club. More bad press isn't what they need when they're already struggling, how do the North fans on here feel about this situation?

    After 17 years employment at the club surely there comes a time where its time for both parties to go different ways? Can be good for both parties, Im not sure what the issue is here?

    A beautiful quote from his manager:

    He was given the weekend off and he went home to see his mother on mothers day. I don't even know why this is a story".

    The Tasmanian Government does not want a team to relocate, they want their own new team and without the Government support it won’t happen

    The second part of that story was that Noble had lost the players.

    Sounds like there are some destabilising people at the club doing their worst.
