2 - 4 year players commence training
Why wouldn't he be there? According to the media it was Buddy's training session and 30 other random blokes in red and white showed up for some reasonI wonder if Buddy is there. I mean I know he isn't a young player but it would be great to see him there after missing so much football.
I could be wrong, but I think he delisted with the knowledge that he would be rookie listed, we weren't abandoning himFox won the time-trial today, followed by Ling, Ronke and Stephens.
I have gone on record saying time trials have very little bearing on the participants' upcoming pre-seasons and performance during the season. But these results were notable to me for two reasons:
1. Fox goes from being delisted to winning a time trial. That speaks volumes about what a professional he is after being delisted.
2. Both Ling & Ronke haven't had great run with injuries. That they were able to prepare themselves and return in that kind of shape is a small victory for them already.
I choose to believe that the only contact the club has with the players is 15 minutes before and after each game. The rest of the time, there is 0 communication and all the players are in the same boat as the fans on here.I could be wrong, but I think he delisted with the knowledge that he would be rookie listed, we weren't abandoning him
Your "humerous auto-correct" accidentally denigrates Reid yet somehow it fails to correct your misspelling of humourous ? Curious.Great to see buddy there first day of pre season. Hopefully 2021 turns into what 2020 was meant to be... buddy training the house down during pre season then taking that form into the season to give fans a reminder of what vintage Franklin can do on the field.
Reid looking like a TANK!! maybe 2021 will be the year he finally arrives and provides buddy with a decoy while kicking a few bags himself, while manhandling the second defender...
note: my autocorrect changed manhandling to panhandling... which is probably a more accurate prediction of Reid's role in the team. *tongue in cheek comment there, just thought it was a humerous autocorrect and couldn't help myself
