Is Constable like Bartel?
Angry at not playing enough games in the seniors early in career.

Private School boy, who maybe has had things too easy in school football. Trains hard, but lacks x factor.

True.

But when I get tagged about certain players, and those remarks turn out to be 100% wrong, I'm going to give it back just as hard with zero apologies.
No one expects apologies. Our assessments/opinions can be wide of the mark and often are. Even the so-called experts often get it wrong.

I think Bartel had x factor.
He was one of the most brilliant marking midfielders in the game.

Constable will be a good player if he gets a crack at it. Watching him this year, he seems to lack a bit of creativity when he gets the ball. The other thing is he's a big unit. About 6ft'3 and very much the prototypical size for a midfielder these days. Shame the coaches could not find a way to give him a small batch of games just to see what he has.

Still haven't really seen enough to judge properly. Seemed to have no issue finding it which is good.

There will be opportunities coming though.

He's a good ball winner but if he still can't run out games, 3 seasons in, then that'll be his downfall.

Considering how little interest has been shown in Constable we may have no option

What l already know he has us an average of 21 possessions from the get go, bet that rises if he gets game continuity in the future and also puts on size.

So he's told the club that if an offer comes up elsewhere he's happy to move.
* wells said it on 3aw at 6:30 ish
If an offer comes up in Victoria..? I think StKilda seemed to have moved past him now. Could we see another trade abomination and him heading to Waverley?
If North liked him it would probably simplify things.
