Mate, you've come full circle on this.

Weeks ago you said it didn't matter who we got because Preuss was OUT. Surely the recruiters' hands were tied to an extent?

Anyway, a depth midfielder/flanker adds more strings to the bow than a depth ruckman who made himself unpopular. IMO.
fair point I was trying to convince myself that it was a great outcome, it just isn't. Regardless of our views on Preuss we do not need Tyson. And tbh I'm gutted for Dom he'd be captain coach at Carlton and his professionalism wouldn't go astray either.

Again it doesn't matter I disliked Scoot and I dislike Barnaby aka Joyce. Won't be long and I'll have no one to moan about at out great club.

Funny thing now we've a new leader and it's been a few days, the dust has settled......... Scott isn't quite as awesome as he once was. Just sayin.

TBH, I was also keen to paint the deal as a positive and have to admit to now being a little disappointed. Although it's too early to make a definitive call, the Preuss side is panning out as expected (i.e. he struggles to get a game with Gawn there, is anyone surprised?), and the knock on Dom - poor disposal - has also been demonstrated.

I like Dom and he might still have a role to play. I hope.

Double like for your last sentence :thumbsu:

I wanted us to get Dom last year when Ch7 put up a stat that something in the order of 88% of our centre clearances were won when Cunnington was in the middle. Tyson seemed the perfect bloke to play that role when Cunners was resting so we didn't just concede the ball.
At the end of the day though, he cost us Clarke and Preuss. And while they might not have been important ongoing pieces of our puzzle, you have to concede that at this stage, we didn't win the trade.
I'm not actually convinced of that.

Tyson has a lot of upside, as i have said before, he has been known as a defensive forward. Also i can see him as a very reasonable player off the bench who can replace cunnington to let him float forward.

Me neither.

Preuss was off to Melbourne no matter what, and Tyson wanted out so we picked him up.

He's a better player than both Preuss or Clarke. We won.

Too L8 sorry M8.

Anyone else on the bandwagon? The Tyson Taxi is at the rank mutha******s and any campaigner trying to jump on mid-season better be prepared for a ****in monster flagfall.

While these guys do not fill the same role they're now taking three opportunities for spots which of course has a flow on effect. TT, Zurhaar &Larkey.

Add in Higgins, Bailey Scott, Jacobs, Garner, Macmillan, Hall probably Taylor, I just cannot see a spot for Dom at North. we are looking to further quicken the side and improve our foot skills. Not sure Dom does either? Also Simpkin is playing midfield just like a young Ben Cunnington

In saying that he does us no harm being on the list.

Can't see how Tyson gets another senior game for us without catastrophic injuries to our midfield.

It was a s**t trade for us and the 3 year contract appalling imho.
