I think you're holding on too much to that.Not true. He's said he'll be at Essendon unless he's not wanted.
yeah for me it has Gumbletron 2.0 all over it. I have always feared this would happen to us with JD. It was too good to be true to think finally Essendon had a savior to win that next GF. Apart from one stand out year, he has been the most frustrating player to watch with his poor goal accuracy.pick 4 + Heeney gets the job done for me.
joe inst quite twice the player however heeney gets on the park - joe hasnt been....the injury risk cant be avoided.
Well if he gets injured again in 2020 his value will obviously plummet though i'm happy to take that risk.Unless the Swans come up with a very good offer (2 first rounders, at least), hold him to his contract. His value is probably the lowest it could be at the moment.
If he was to get injured again in 2020 and miss the majority of another season then I don't think any other team would even want him (for the money he would ask for). Would be hard to come back from missing almost 3 years of football. O'Meara will never be the player he could have been after his setbacks.Well if he gets injured again in 2020 his value will obviously plummet though i'm happy to take that risk.
Unless Swans give us overs i see no incentive for Essendon to do any type of deal to get Daniher to the Swans. Hold him to his contract and see how he performs in 2020. Essendon are in the box seat in basically all scenarios.
Maybe I am but at least they're words from his mouth rather than the speculation of others.I think you're holding on too much to that.
I watched and re-watched that episode. I got the feeling he was avoiding giving any direct definitive answers and only said that when cornered.
IMO if he really felt that way he would have just come out and said "I want to be at Essendon next year" without being cornered for a direct response.
I think Merrett forgot the public stance is different from the reality, Joe hadn't publicly made that indication in the slightest."I think he's made it pretty clear that he's going to have a bit of time away and decide what he wants to do with his footy going forward."
