DAZZA'S WICKED AND WONDERFUL WHISPERS
I’M told Daniel Menzel wants an unconditional contract at the Cats despite being on full pay for a long time while mending from multiple injuries. Now I think he’s a wonderful and very smart young bloke but wouldn’t you think you kind of owe your employers after they’ve looked after you so well? Thing is, Daniel has a lot of bargaining power right now and there are some serious predators keen to lure him away from Kardinia Park. The Cats want him to stay, of course, but only on a conditional contract given his multiple recos already and the possibility his knee could go again. I think that’s fair enough, footy is a business, after all. But remember, he hasn’t produced a flag like a lot of retiring and recently retired Cats who worked for a lot less. Hmmm. I’ve also heard that Western Bulldog Jake Stringer is heading Geelong’s way. Oh yeah, and Gary Ablett Jr is still on the way, too. I’m hearing he’s likely to accept a nominal amount for the trade. He’s missing home.
