Sicily came in and was doing a better job at playing in Burton's preferred position. We also picked up Scrimshaw who is a better compliment to our backline that what Burton was now Sicily is established thereBut you must think Hawthorn are only five years off a flag and not ten, because you brought in an older player, hoping he will be part of your next flag.
I also question what you say about Wingard. Sure, he is a more talented player, but he goes missing a bit, and I have always seen him as a downhill skiier. If his effort matched his talent, he might be your best player in the side, but he hasn't shown this work ethic yet.
I highly rated Burton, and thought that he would be the new general in your backline going forward.
Besides, you better hope Wingard is good, considering that Port got Burton and a draft pick, who I think they used to get Connor Rozee from. So, to win that deal, Wingard's career going forward would want to be better than it has been so far.
They picked up Duursma from the draft pick from the trade
Wingard looked great in the midfield late in the season. He is the inside/outside midfielder we have never really had.
