Because whilst he wouldnt have chosen him originally and might not see him as his first choice he still recognises Barnard as an experienced pro and thinks he is the best option in the absence of Corr.
He is not being forced to play him, he had only played 14 minutes in 5 games prior to Saturday so the only logical and reasonable reason he played on Saturday was because he thought he was the best player to put on.
As for budgets, yes Barnard will be taking part of that, but it didnt stop us buying Bolger for 25k and now having 4 centre halveson our books, if the budget was that much of an issue and Brown wanted another striker he wouldnt have signed either him or Max
These facts will of course no doubt be totally ignored and you will continue to look for conspiracy theories to match your perceptions.
Assume you are a manager of a Sunday team and the chairman orders you to play his son who you perceive not good enough for your team,You have the simple choice of swallowing your pride and play his son or you walk away which if you walked it will have no bearing on your financial life,Consider the same scenario but now you are a pro manager and your family and yourself depend on your job..What would you do then?
