Stop it, this isn’t the place for common sense and well supported factual arguments.Just quietly, Howe was easily our best performer in the SUB role this year, and had solid form at VFL level when he wasn’t best 22.
Turner played reasonable roles in all 3 of our wins this year, sets standards at training and is in the right age range.
I know everyone is desperate for these guys to be supplanted by superior players, and they will be - very quickly - but we’re going into next year having lost BMac, Cunnington, Ziebell and Goldstein.
If one of both of them get retained for another year to have a bit of stability at the club I can live with it.
He's our only gut runner through the middle. They're molding Taylor but his tongue is hanging out half the time. Scott's a winger. The kids aren't up to it yet.I’m fine with turner having 1 more year
Not Howe tho, bloke is a spud who should have stayed delisted
Half this board. Turner must do some right. Perhaps he is first to show last to leave, perhaps players like Baily scott have trained harder because of his leadership? There is something there inside the 4 walls why he keeps getting a gig. Obviously not ripping up the footy field, but is better to have around than not.Who was it that was going to explode if Turner wasn’t exited?
Maybe Turner has footballing genius whose footy IQ outweighs his physical capabilities? He could be the next Clarko?
I get that but how useful is it to keep him on the list when he has played 25 games in 5 years and just 2 games this year. I would rather have someone who can actually get on the park.Cannot move on Bonar until we have some idea what we are doing with our key defenders. He is not a KP defender but has shown he can at least compete, even against the likes of McKay. Mahoney, Turner and Howe have plenty of competition.
This may change by the end of the trade period but haven't heard many names yet. Corr and Dawson are it right now.
