This one still burns for me but just wanted to chip in here.

Honestly you guys have picked up a champ here. As much as it hurts you guys have smashed us in this trade and he will repay you 10x over in your system next year. Probably pretty close to the most underrated player in the AFL.

Spent most of my life hating North Melbourne but between Emma Kearney moving to your AFLW team and Polly to your AFL side North will just about be my second team for 2019. Wish you all luck (except when you are playing us).

Heard last night that some people aren't as confident as others that Polecs foot will last. With our history of foot complaints I hope we haven't overlooked something.

Following Ben Jacobs rehab, I expect he’ll be the lead in Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake after he’s done.

Would those people happen to be the PAFC?

Probably the same people from PAFC who laughed at Hawthorn for recruiting Burgoyne and his dodgy knee

Can’t be too bad as port offered him a three year contract
Its weighing up the risk against the long term contract and Port didn't see it as viable.

Same as the hawthorn supporters saying Burtons second year blues mean he's gonna have a terrible career.
Hawks supporters have got nothing to complain about. Hawthorn threatened Burton with a year in the VFL if he didn't agree to the trade. Their "family club" ethos is all bullshit. They are ruthless.

Port butchered the Polac contract and went into damage mode to save face. Top 5 in their B&F and letting a home grown kid leave is embarrassing.

SA football clubs are quickly becoming the laughing stock of the AFL. Any word on how the Crows camp is going this year?
