Earlier this year
End of an Era - Perth after Martin
Been a bit of talk about this in other threads, so thought I'd consolidate it here.
Personally, I was hoping he would play on, and will still be glad if that happens. But the 1yr contract made it clear he was a year-by-year proposition, and it was obvious even before the ankle injury that he was carrying something else.
"When Damo is gone it will free up some big money to go after Machado...once Cotton naturalizes. Good times."
Not sure what the squad will look like next year. It could be Martin will retire, but we already need an extra spot to fit Travers.
Fortunately Steindl is contracted, so his good form won't see him poached.
Vague is out of contract, and despite outstanding off-season work in the SEABL and last year the NZNBL, he's not really made that step up, yet.
