Youre right Couto, Orange would have to pay Lloyd that amount of money because the Essendon football Club cant pay their players the money they DESERVE! That's why we were forced to trade Hardwick and recruit a bloody 37 year old. We need the salary cap, dont get me wrong because if it was abolished, you can say goodbye to at least 3 to 4 Victorian clubs. But if it wasnt for teams like the western bulldogs, the kangaroos, geelong and st kilda (who were the clubs that opposed an increase in the salary cap the most) we might be able to officially pay our players the money they should be getting, not taking a pay cut! And no one has explained how a team that has won 3 games in two years (freo) has the same cap compared to a team that has won 38 in two years (the bombers).
