I thought the recruiting and trading during 1999 to 2004 was pretty good, Austinnnn. The basis of one of our most dominant periods. After that we were victims of our own success, with very few early picks. Still, we plucked Steven, McEVoy, Lynch, Gilbert amongst others. We couldn't help that the pelican and trout traded the best away and couldn't develop others. Still, considering the picks we had, we did way better than the fresh water fish and Pelican, whose efforts have produced nothing but heartbreak. Didn't you enjoy 2004-11? Proud to say I was part of that. You are a harsh judge, considering our work produced the second best era in the club's history. Puzzling.You're a brave man identifying yourself as having something to do with recruitment during such a poor recruitment period, but welcome!
