Hate to say it but well done to North for standing up to what allegedly were some ridiculous demands.

Agree, good on North for standing firm, they are better off without him.
Would be hilarious if no one picked him up, Eagles surely couldnt get him, Ainger and Wundke would be using half of their cap alone

Chuck in a James Boyd salary, on top of that !!!

Spoke with a Norwood (Person) this morning meeting with them today.
2017, 2019 & 2020 PREMIERS
RICHMOND, RICHMOND, RICHMOND.


Let that be a lesson to you Sturt. You don't beat Glenelg 3 times in a row in Grand Finals and get away with it.

A tweet from Zac Millbank... Confirmed @NorwoodFC will not pursue the signature of triple @MagareyMedal winner Jimmy Allan. #SANFL

How so?
If any player makes demands be they salary (or otherwise as a lot of us are aware from the past) why would you risk pissing off the rest of the team because one person gets different rules than the rest?
Our midfield was good last year because everyone stepped up.
I love Jimmy and his family but as I said this time last year I thought James Bennett would leave a much bigger hole.
If other clubs want to risk over paying one player (and possibly going over the salary cap as they don't mind fines and recruiting impositions that'll probably get overturned but never would for us) and/or giving different regimes to different players at the risk of disuniting their playing list then so be it but we used to do that in the past and it got us nowhere.
It wasn't a coincidence that Jimmy left when Francou was at North and IMHO Francou was easily the best coach we've had since Nunan.
Also remember he struggled to get on the park last year in a lesser comp and he turns 29 soon.
I wish Jimmy well wherever he ends up, he'll have a soft spot in North supporters hearts forever but I'd rather continue to go forward as a club than backwards.

Can not see the fit at Norwood and at $2,500 a game no way !
Norwood have their eye on 5 players and confident of signing the preferred two. Bartlett would be one of those two.
Can not see Glenelg or Eagles getting him under the salary cap at this late stage.
West ?
South ?
Crows ? :)

West would have plenty left in their salary cap with Mangan, Tippett and Fergusson all gone and no real replacements as yet.


Not real sure we need him though

Offered an amount markedly reduced from his previous deal, which he accepted, then when it came time to sign the fee had been significantly reduced again. Poor form.

Not disputing the other points you've made, imho North looked far more dangerous last season, but still think they've insulted a club great through this process.

I think you'll find Allan hasn't been chasing anywhere near the money he was once on. $2.5k per game is miles off as I understand.

I've heard a strong rumour that the Crows are wanting to get him in to mentor the younger kids and add a bit of maturity to their squad.

So North have botched it because of figures a Norwood supporter has heard or read somewhere?
Norwood must have botched it too since they've turned him down.
Apologies if you work for North Adelaide or are in fact Jimmy Allan but from your lack of discussion about other issues I assume you aren't.

No problems mate, you don't have to believe it - It's only 1 side of the story anyway. There's the on the fence version for ya.

No problems mate, you keep the blind faith in your club that has served you so well and reflect upon how well we botched the last game of the season. There's the other one. ;)

Blind faith?
Who was the biggest critic of the club when they've erred in my opinion especially when they stuffed around ex players such as Hargs?
Who couldn't get a question answered at an AGM because the board and CEO were scared of what I would ask?
Who was screaming blue murder when our major sponsor got to send a letter around in a club envelope?
Who was one of the biggest critics of some if the happenings under Jarman?
Who was part of a group that took the club on when the club wanted to merger?
Who was one of the clubs biggest critics in the whole reserves debacle?
I could go on but you've gone from half truths to an insultive ignorant lie now.
Geezus, the club especially under the previous CEO would have loved it if I did have blind faith.
I won't insult you but you're definitely more conformist to your clubs decisions than I ever have been!
And wtf has a grand final when the best side in the comp beat the side that came 5th go to do with anything? Clutching at straws now.

Agree with you 100% Wedgie. Well said.
What a xxxxing stupid statement to say North botched the GF !!!!! I thought they did a fantastic job against a dominant team and maybe ran out of legs late in the game. Ask the Norwood players if North botched it ! Norwood EARNED that premiership against a worthy opponent.
