the monts had some money in those days -- also went after Spencer twice. I always regret Spencer leaving subi, he may have played in another flag had we had an injury or two in 1986.

Ark just thinking of the good Claremont players that went to the VFL around that time.
Nm used an open checkbook to lure the Krakourer brothers.
Carlton would of played top dollar for Hunter,Blackwell+Ralph.Also Mike Aikten.
Hawks+Footsgray would of also played top $$ for Malaxos+Shorty Daniels.

We sure did have some dough in that halcyon era, we won something like 250g in 1981 (that’s HUGE dollars)for the Marlboro bonus, on top of those significant transfer fees.The club was questioned in later years how those sort of dollars didn’t actually set us up for life but hey it was the 80s who knows. We got hit hard by the VFL in that 80 -86 era, harder than anybody I reckon but that’s history... imagine slotting Hunter into the 81 defence, or the Krackouers into that 82 gf side... oh i should move on shouldn’t I by now...
And on the great man Big, Bad Mal.. one of the toughest WA boys of all time, isn’t it ironic that his schooling was at Scotch College?

Michael Mitchell a bit later.
TOO which one of those Claremont players would of had the highest transfer fee to the VFL.I'm thinking it's one of two players that didn't like playing in Victoria.Ralph or Malaxos.

I don’t know the answer to that gtr the Krackouers cost North a heap of bucks but they were getting two players...Hunter had the best career out of all those Claremont 80s vfl players.

gtr;too: some of the victorians were smarter than others. North signed players when they were not under contract; unsur on Carlton with Hunter

hawthorn was damn foolish to pay subi 270,000 to pay out a one year contract. Buckenara never seemed to rate contracts: he signed with Hawtholrn and the eagles, whilst contracted to two other clubs. Put another way he attempted to rat on the two clubs which had helped him the most in his football career.

Tim Gepp honourred his before he buggerred off to Richmond in 1982

Goulding was a very good player for Claremont but obviously not in the Krakouer brothers class. I didn’t realise until recently that the Australian basketball star Chris Goulding (CG43) is the son of Steve Goulding.
