I was literally about to post this! For those who missed List Management 101:Meets your List Management 101 of always pick the key forward, I guess I'll be interested to see what you think he can add to our side both short and long term.
1) Get tall forwards however you can, hang onto them at all costs.
2) Use your high draft picks on key forwards, midfielders and occasionally key defenders.
I don't think so as I think most people were glad that the trade fell through. We offered way too much, and we are just lucky Dodoro was even dumber than we were. It was stupid offering so much for a player with Daniher's injury record.What a difference a year makes.
Last year we were panicking like Crazy on this board because we didn't secure the trade
I wouldn't say it's a direct replacement for Buddy as they are very different styles of players.Very early to say but we could have found our replacement for Buddy...
They haven't formally announced yet (or I missed it) but I believe Matthews was at his last gig. Cox was analysis but I suspect Pyke has come in to do that and work across the lines and/or stoppages specifically. We need improvement in our clearance work.It has to be Ben Matthews or Don Pyke as McVeigh is midfield, Kirk is development, Laidler is reserves and Cox is ruck. That only leaves Matthews and Pyke.
I don't think many believed Norf would not select him now Brown has gone. By the sounds of things Hawks were desperate to get him as they need a forward.It actually blows my mind that we got this kid.
Rated as basically the number 1 live forward, lands at Pick 4.
Just kinda brilliant.
Good luck to both the Lions and Daniher if they do, but the cost was far too high.
