Dear Gary Ablett,
I write to you regarding your remuneration for the 2018 AFL season, in which you intend to play with the Geelong Football Club.
It’s an exciting and romantic prospect. A bit like your mum and dad getting back together after a divorce. One day you realise that the tanned Argentinian tennis coach (The Gold Coast Football Club in this analogy, and yes Gary, you are Mum) wasn’t the love match you’d thought it would be — compared to the strong, familiar arms of Dad (Geelong).

What I’m suggesting is Geelong pays out your 2018 Gold Coast contract in cash, fruit from Frank Costa or the tears of Joel Selwood (which are so rare they are worth more than BitCoin) or a combination of all three, and you come play with us for free.

I know you are a man of God, so we have you covered …read more
