I agree Denis and Slip. Our Board would do us a favour if those names of Flanagan, Barrett and Morris were our coach/assistants from 2023. The problem is they have re-signed Hook for 2023 and they won't back down I don't think.Excellent points Slip. Just wish the Board was on your wavelength.
The Bulldogs must have a lot of faith in Ciraldo to sign him up for 5 years. We had a situation when Bennett was signed up and he wanted 5 years - a term that Ciraldo might have hit the Dogs with otherwise he doesn't sign the contract. So I think the Dogs agreed to his request maybe reluctantly because it being such a long time and if things don't work out one way or another, big bickies need to be paid unless of course there are those special clauses written in the signed paperwork.
Doust didn't agree with Bennett's request as we know and the rest is history and maybe in that instance, Bennett might not have been successful if he had the extra years with us, who knows? Same as Ciraldo. He might do wonders for years 1-3 and then not so good in the last 2. That is what I hope anyway as I hate the effin Dogs - sorry!
