What makes the decision to sign Mackay even more baffling is that over time it's become clear that we actually have significant list spot pressure, to the point where we may not be able to take pick 40 in the draft.

I could maybe understand it if it was pick 80 or Mackay, or a late rookie pick or Mackay.

But we're faced with not taking pick 1 in the rookie draft, not taking pick 40, not taking all our academy players

Weird stuff

You should have mentioned something sooner you can't just ignore his form for years and years, and then suddenly say he should be out.

Liverpool, Glenelg,
Remember that time Mackay missed the entire pre-season with injury but then played round 1 when Seedsman went down?
Yep.. all the Mookay lovers on here told us for months and months that David would be “depth only and play most of the year in the SANFL”

although... they’ve said that every year for the last three and are still saying it now he’s re-signed for next year.

David is a cockroach... and his fans on here are deluded.

How bad is our list management. Re-signing is a superannuation decision. Even as a rookie he will cause us to miss on a more deserving player.
