new coach 400k, dimma 1 mil maybe more. There wont be any pressure next year as we will finish close to dead last.  I think you are the one who is naive thinking a new coach wont want to clean the joint out. You have become fascinated with the soft cap even as we just had a coach walk out on 1 mil plus.


Your naivety seems to know no bounds

A senior coach, even a rookie one is going to be on a bit more than $400k  ::). Are you seriously suggesting McRae is on $400K a year? Sam Mitchell?

You want to flick a minimum 3 coaches who if under contract will need to been paid out at say $200k each...

There's the $1mil for Dimma you go on about used. Then bring in a minimum 3 new assistants plus you want more spent in others areas of the footy dept (don't we all) when the afl have said the increase next year will be around $500k.

Oh that's right let's just spend over the cap, pay the tax @200% so we can prop up the minnow Clubs more than we are now...

If we paid Dimma out for the year we shouldnt have now he is walking into another job (we would have known he was going to GC). 
If I quit my job, my employer wouldnt pay me to go on holiday.

It's called severance pay due to him having a contract for this year & next. We would have paid Dimma out an agreed portion of this year & nothing for next year due to him not fulfilling his contract for that year.
I think the club is smarter than to payout on asisstants contracts when they don't need to.

Dimma got paid entitlements which were considerable after 14 years. Both accrued annual and long service leave.
As there is in the corporate world, he is given gardening leave payments that prevent him going to another club for a period of time after his resignation .
This will be 3 or 6 months.
All up, worst case scenario is that he will be paid about a year and this will be all allowed under the soft cap entitlements.

So, can we move on? This is a NON ISSUE.
“I find it nearly impossible to make those judgments, but he is certainly up there with the really important ones, he is certainly up there with the Francis Bourkes and the Royce Harts and the Kevin Bartlett and the Kevin Sheedys, there is no doubt about that,” Balme said.

Geez we already managed to clean out a huge part of the whole footy dept without killing the soft cap in 2016.Yes i know its different now but if hard calls are needed then we at least have to make a start.



Umm the soft cap in 2016 was more than it is in 2023.

So that is a rather silly statement didn't you think?

Silly lol whos being selective? How could you miss the bit straight after that comment where i said yes i know its different but we need to make a start.

How long is the soft cap going to be an excuse for not making decisions.

Yep. Shame it wasn't Teague who left.

One more spot to fill but I bet we won't and a few posters will blame the soft cap again  :lol
