Agreed, if he is fit and firing it would be huge for our chances this year.

Call me crazy but I still think he crucial to our set up.
Yep completely agree. If he can stay on the park for the second half of the season our chances go up dramatically.

Its just the staying on the park bit that's the problem :(

I've heard he finds it very easy to stay on a park. What's hard is when he's obliged to do anything athletic on that park. Then it goes all awry.

I wonder how many weeks in total the two brothers have missed through their careers....

Since debut (and i didnt check how often it was a form absence so Ben Reids are massively inflated as he didnt play often first few years)

Sam 121 of 191

Ben 142 of 262

Thanks for the memories Sam, well done on the premiership , shame your body let you down at the end

He needs to retire. Who makes the ******* contract decisions at this club ? How the **** did he get resigned ? Anyone who says he will come good and lead us to the promised land can GAGF. He is a joke.

Reid is a great player however his body coninually lets him down. However he is a key forward and they hold more value as they are alot harder to come by. The exact reason why a player like reid will always be worth more than someone like lloyd despite lloyd being a better player and far more consistant

He's no star, I put him in the role player tier for a reason, but this is all very reactionary. We are a better team with Reid than without. Calling him a joke is just lame.


See the irony here ? Reid is never anything but Lame.

The Club's decision to resign an injury prone player that struggles to put more than six games on end together is also a joke. His tenure at the club will surpass Tipett's as the most ridiculous calamity the Club has made in the last 20 years. Only thing that tops it is Trading Wayne Carey to North Melbourne for a couple of Slabs without him ever pulling on a Swans Gurnsey. Like I have said before the day Colless cleaned out his desk this club started back on the path to mediocrity. Off field decision making as bad decision making the players make on it.
