    So the Giants pull the pin and the first casualty is their marquee signing... Pekay.
    It's the beginning of the end for an esteemed and respected club.

    Up here on holiday on the banks of the Daintree River in far north QLD and the word comes through that the new coach of Baulko is to be ........... Jamie Vlatko.
    I have no particular issue with that,other than to say there might be a budgetary benefit on that choice. Dunno really.
    You have to wish him well with the challenge that awaits,and the high bar that he has to leap over.
    All the best, Jamie Vlatko

    Was that an attempt at humour?

    Did most of my dough by betting against Baulko in the GF.
    But I'll do it again next year and hope for a different result..!

    We can only hope that Nick Salter is more of a Paul Bevan than a Gerrard Bennett !
    Whats the background to Nick Salter? I assume he has moved to Sydney for work and is after some coin and found that Wests is one of the few clubs able to accommodate. Is that correct?

    I don't know any more than you. Perhaps you've nailed it.
    What interests me more is how a player with those credentials will fit with the game plan. Perhaps a gun player will make it easier to get a coach.

    If I was running Wests I'd put the money in to building up and attracting some quality juniors who will have some loyalty to the club and stay and play for 10 years. Clubs need depth to play finals and win GFs, so attracting one player who has no loyalty to the club beyond the coin he receives is not the answer. It is not as if they are in a premiership window and need Salter to open it for them.

    I agree, wests in the long run would be better investing the money into its juniors. Once the money stops flowing to the individuals they move on

    Would have to disagree, getting someone of that calibre into the squad can only help, not just on game day, but with training etc. Especially when you consider that the Wests squad is quite young.

    But Wests have been doing that for years and when was the last time they made finals? Paul Bevan was a much better player than Salter and they had a much better list then compared to now and they still missed out on finals. Why would it be any better this time?
    Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing repeatedly but expecting a different result?
    Unless they do something differently they'll still be in the same position in 5 years time, or maybe in an even worse position if they keep finishing last.
