    That’s exactly why he will need a tap on the shoulder because with his competitive nature, he will never give up.

    Its irrelevant as he costs us nothing out of the salary cap. he could be on $2 or $2million IDGAF. & we have no other players to put the LSPA towards. Which will be Graham.

    Gal got paid very well for his time here. It's not like he did a Gavin Miller for us. In his prime every contract negotiation was a struggle.

    Also, I can't speak for others, however it's not about wanting him to move on cause I don't want him, it's more about his legacy. For people actually at the game, watch him off the ball, stuff the camera doesn't pick up. It's obvious he's working his arse off to keep up. Which he is, cause he's Gal. However I doubt he will be able to do that next year, since he's struggling to do it this year.

    He's got his 9 contract, he should focus on that.

    You don't know how the LSPA works do you?

    Ever think he is nursing his knee? Ever think that the medical staff have insisted that he play reduced minutes to get him through a longer healing period? Ever think that his explosive fitnees may be down because he hasnt run in 12 weeks?
    Nah. didnt think so.

    Sure - so in other words Gal's body will no longer let him perform at his previous exceptional levels.
    There's no shame in that, he is 37, and has been a warrior for us for a long, long time.
    Which is why Gal should be convinced to bow to reality & have a great last year in 2018.

    It really wouldn't surprise me if he pulls up stumps at the end of this year anyway.

    Looks more and more disinterested in the questions at each press conf. Jokes around a bit with Flanno at times.

    Has a bit of the old grumpy look at times does the old Gal.

    Reckon he's not going around another year.

    Definitely not 100% fit at the moment though.

    In what way will gallen cost us a cent in 2019? or , who else is there to take advantage of long serving player allowance in 2019? Graham is the oldest & hes a year away.

    Graham is next year
    Actually Lewis gets some as well.
    Edit again, Prior can get some too

    He is a tough competitor, on the field and at the contract table. He is blue,black and white as any of our greats but I hope he gives it away at the end of the season. Just so I can remember him as Gal and we can move on, as we must.

    Tap! Tap!

    Hey Gallen when we are trying to win a game with not much time left to go get the f**k out of the way.

    FMD talk about a momentum killer!

    Let’s get the ball through the hands.

    No Gal wants a hit up on the 4th tackle.

    FMD!

    Minutes on the clock....

    We need to score...

    Backline is stretched...

    Playmakers calling...

    Broncos struggling to form a line..

    4 tackles gone...

    We can do this...

    Hang on...



    Gal hits it up.

    The slowest plodder in the side.

    Smart.

    Not.

    I honestly believe Flanno will give him another season. I swear Gallen had mentioned he was in talks with the club for another go around.
