    In retrospect yes we would have been better off not recruiting Tippett and keeping Mumford particularly given that we recruited Buddy the following year, but who was to know? I was very excited when we signed him, nothing to do about it now

    We can do something about it, trade him like Matt suggested along with a draft pick. Freeing up $800 in our cap would allow us to retain the players we need and maybe even recruit a good player. As an example, Dusty is a $1m a year player that you might be able to get if you traded Tippett and let Reid go.

    If we let tippet go we would only have Sinclair and nainsmith as rucks!.

    Letting Toby walk out last year has sealed our commitment to tippet for the rest of his career.

    It may go down in history that tippets most notable contribution to the swans is the most popular thread on RWO of all time. We should actually make an award for it.

    What is a bigger achievement?. 300 games or 5000 post thread about you.?

    The idea that we can get anything for Tippet is totally delusional.

    We are bleating about what a waste of money he is but we somehow think another club will be stoopid enough to take him. Even that silly trade of Matt is not worth it for just one year.

    We'll just have to try and get the best out of him next year and then either pay him a more appropriate salary ($250 - 300K base) or move him on.

    The only upside is you'd hope any major cap space issues will be a thing of the past come end of next season

    I doubt he will have any currency and what club will pick up his salary. The problem with conditions like last night is that is that it negates the marking skills of blokes like Tippett. And all but 3 of our remaining games are night games.
