Terrible news for Mitchell. Hawthorn and football in general.
Will be interesting to see how the Hawks go this season. West Coast lost NicNat and Gaff and still one the GF so wouldn't be writing them off just yet.
I think Well's said an exceptional deal. Then there was also Brian Cook in August saying that Geelong won't entertain offers for Tim Kelly at end of season
Out of interest. Given an exceptional offer was a pick inside the top 10 according to Wells. What was the range for a fair offer.
Also note that 7 of the 10 players selected in the twenties last year debuted including 2 from your own club
