Grant Thomas slams North Melbourne

Former St Kilda coach Grant Thomas certainly doesn’t hesitate in sharing his opinions on hot topics in the AFL via his Twitter account.

This time he has given the North Melbourne Football Club a massive whack for deciding to not offer club veterans Brent Harvey, Drew Petrie, Michael Firrito and Nick Dal Santo new contracts for 2017.

His multi-Tweet tirade took particular issue with the timing of the announcement, with finals just around the corner and the Roos limping into September action.
