Can’t help thinking that if Ben Brown was at another club then North would be going hard at him.
Have they got inside knowledge and think AFL lists are going to be reduced to 5 permanent players with the balance of your weekly team to be selected “schoolyard style “ each week?
Looking to move Higgins on as well now after paying a squillion and signing him up until he turns 65.

I think it's a case of that in terms of money, they have no money.

Forget the ethics of it. What about the competence? If they don't want Brown around and you know he's seeking a superior deal, why wouldnt you offer him a contract hes not keen on signing and hence he explores his options in trade period as a "required player" there fore maximising trade currency?

By cutting him loose haven't North just put a massive discount on him?

What's their play here?

I would think they've been doing that. It's pretty late in the game to be starting the negations.

It would be the classic play everyone on talkback radio throws up whenever the team is struggling. Shop your best asset around while it's still worth something, because once free agency kicks in he's going to leave for the big dollars.

Also, there's probably a bit of pantomime about it all. Watch how quickly he finds a home.

Sure and what are North getting for a bloke who kicked 60 goals three years in a row?

Someone still had to come up with a trade. You'd think there'd be a market for him.

We gave up pick 3* for McCarthy and he'd sat out a season.

This guy could single-handedly get the club back in the black. There'd be a market for at least 50,000 wigs a year in the team store.

I think Polec would be of interest if available. Out of favor at NM but a very good goal kicking wingman at PA.

That reads more like an eagles spiel, Shane.
