Are you suggesting this is what Melbourne promised Preuss? Highly doubtful, given, you know, Gawn ...
Probably should have worded it better.

They gave assurances that he was a priority and would get game time alongside Gawn.

Whereas we wanted him to develop to a point where he could take over from Goldy once he retired in a year or two.

I think they set out to play hm regularly, but when their game plan was stuffed by the 6-6-6 rule and they realised how bad their spread was compared to other sides, they quickly shelved the idea of playing a lumbering prime mover with the tank of a moped.

What a bunch of amateurs, being blind sided by the 6-6-6 rule. Oh, wait a minute ...

LOL, Terry The List Manager has taken 20 rounds of football to realise what we all concluded about 20 nano-seconds after the trade was completed:
