Yeah cause we need 40+ A graders or they just arent worth having... Clearly every flag winning team has had 20 A graders waiting to come in these campaigners who think role players can win you are flag are ******ed
You might not have 40 A graders but you should at least be looking for the next ones, signing this bloke adds nothing if he plays to potential we have gone sideways at best

Who else would have you brought in?
Would have much preferred we took a chance on an 18 year old over a twice delisted 29 year old we hope doesn’t see the field, kid from Tassie would have been my uninformed pick, 2 time AA u18, bit of pace good kick and knows how to find it. Hurt his knee this year but was still considered a certainty to get drafted, another wasted opportunity in my opinion

I would agree if we had a draft like we have had in the last few years where our first pick isn't till the 40s, but this year we've taken three kids and can afford to take a veteran as backup for nothing.

I think he means O'Neill, who was picked up by West Coast late in the rookie draft.

Anyway, I hope Mitch does well for you guys next year. Not the first guy I wanted to see delisted.
