Yeah all clubs do the same Constable wright Brodie Higgins like you said GWS been fantastic at it. So not just a Tiger thing.When they win flags we allow our reserves players to look for teams where they may get games
North should be looking at Higgins. He would be in your best 10 players
The difference is that Rayner is at an age where he's still years away from even entering what should be his prime years (ages 25-29), and has the scope and pedigree (being a star junior and former #1 draft pick) to still improve much further. When Hannan was Rayner's age, he was still a VAFA player.Facts don't care about your feelings.
Rayner's record is no better than a player who's not best 22 at a non-finalist club.
Rayner on the left and Hannan on the right.
It is what it is despite your umbrage.

I agree with every word.The difference is that Rayner is at an age where he's still years away from even entering what should be his prime years (ages 25-29), and has the scope and pedigree (being a star junior and former #1 draft pick) to still improve much further. When Hannan was Rayner's age, he was still a VAFA player.
Hannan is in the middle of what should be his prime years, appears to be going backwards and has struggled to be a first choice player in a MOR side over the past couple of seasons (15 of a possible 39 games in 2019-2020). He's probably as good as he'll ever be, and unlikely to improve much going forward. What Hannan may have done in 2017-2018 as a 23-24 year old isn't really relevant to 2021 and beyond. He's perfect delisting fodder. NFI why the Bulldogs feel he's worthy of targeting for a multi-year deal, beyond the "romance" of having played for their VFL side once upon a time. Really isn't going to add much.
