I don’t doubt that both have had rubbish seasons. If Brayshaw wants to be traded that just confirms that this club stinks. Good clubs don’t keep losing required players. He’s also one of very few of our inside mids who can score goals. He needs a huge preseason and to be retrained as a two way runner but I wouldn’t be tossing baby out with the bathwater yet.Potential being the operative word. Brayshaw has a foot out the door in my opinion, we need to give something good to get something good. Big call to be made. Viney is overrated mate. Sorry.
Likewise Viney has had a stinker but blind Freddy could see he has been well below his best. He’s won a best and fairest as a 22 year old, he was best on ground in that Hawthorn final and at his best (which we admittedly haven’t seen for the best part of two seasons) he’s a very influential talisman who creates an extraordinary amount of physical pressure around the ball and inspires his teammates with his efforts. I’d also rather see what Burgess can do with him than write him off as a shitheap under the fog of an awful season.
