Eddie Betts.Hmm, I feel sad saying it, but if I were a young player with the football world at my feet, Adelaide would be about the last club i’d want to sign with.
Remember there would be meetings with Roo, Birdman, Pyke, Hart, Campo etc.
What was the last ‘big’ signing we made? Darren Jarman?
Eddie Betts being a star signing at the time or not, that is beside the point. We have not signed many star players in our time.Yes he was. One of the competitions best small forwards.
Absolutely spot on. Lots of people questioning that decision at the time.There was a lot of questions over it at the time, and a common "$500k for a small forward, wtf" theme.
He was one of the best, but had been fairly ordinary under mick malthouse.
In retrospect a great pick up, and certainly some felt he was big at the time, but it was far better from unanimous that it was a gun signing for us - at the time.
Dew met with every SA based players family this week..... except Lukos.Rankine enjoying the riches of being a high profile recruit to a side desperate for retention. Barely played any footy but has the new car and new fat contract. Good for him.
I’m more interested that Luko clearly wants no part in any of it. And you can bet if he did they would be trumpeting it.
