I think he is an angry Crow supporter.

Menzel straight to Port. Next showdown kicks 5. You know it'll happen.
Lee Gaskin isn't a crow or power supporter think he's originally from Canberra, AFL media hired him to cover SA probably due to his impartiality. Like most writing for what in essence is another Victorian media arm he usually ends up doing confirmation pieces or speculation pieces to drag in Victorian readers, didn't used to mind him but found him really reaching in articles this year to fill the AFL Media's quotas.
Yes sadly I think it's going to be a case one day of "Hey - didn't you used to be Troy Menzel?"
Come on down the bay Troy - you can help us win a GF...
Or maybe just a final...
Or maybe just a game...
Its OK to be wrong
CEY delisted and then rookie listed IMO
So who's getting #32?
Or have we lost all number sentimental value as players who have been given our most respected numbers tend to leave, 32, 23, 6..
What happened to the changes to the rookie rules I wonder. Seems to have gone quiet.
They really shouldn't have played Born to be Alive in the background when announcing it.
start the car no Jarman don't.
Sam Shaw has retired too.
Surprised Wigg and Hunter didn't get the chop. Think Beech and CEY will get a 1-year rookie contract.
I thought Menzel looked good against WWT late in the season. I think the problem is that he is not able to play THE MAESTRO's game plan. At the pre GF open training at Adelaide Oval we ran one drill where players had to work their way through a heap of defenders by hand or foot. Menzel kept missing targets and I thought, well that is why he hasn't been given a game. His fitness was OK this year and his intensity and tackling good but he could only play as a high half forward in our structure.
Dean Gore did everything he was asked to do but others in our squad do it better.
The delistings aren't over yet. Menzel and Gore are juts the first to go. Expect more to come.
Not surprised with Dean Gore, I made the call late last year after seeing him a few times at SANFL level that he was never going to play a game for us.
If anything I would have pulled a 40 year old Robert Shirley (who used to be my number 1 whipping boy) out of retirement and put him in the side long before I would have given Dean Gore a game.
I'm disappointed with Menzel because the talent was there, he just couldn't make the most of his opportunities. A small part of me is worried that this might come back to bite us if he goes to another club.
All non SA players to be given numbers 53 and above till they prove their allegiance.
Im shocked about Menzel especially with Cameron gone.
Just to recap...Dangerfield and pick 50 traded to Geelong for Gore, Pick 9 and 28.
Gore came with big wraps. I remember seeing his introduction to the squad on the Crows website and the reaction from the players was very encouraging but as we waited to see his potential to alleviate the loss of Dangerfield it eventually became obvious....we had been done over. Todays delisting has confirmed our eagerness to get that trade completed quickly really didn't bear fruit. Someone please remind me why we didn't push harder! Our only other trades that year were for Hampton and Seedsman who each had absolutely nothing to do with the Dangerfield trade.
Oh! there was one other......
Troy Menzel.....(Sam Kerridge and pick 28 from Geelong)...He had his chances to break into the team this year but showed little if anything. He was even more disappointing than Gore considering his early career with Carlton and those glimpses of brilliance during last season's SANFL finals.
So our last hope to finally get something back at Geelong rests with Milera (their pick 9)! But his progress has not been as expected. His career is mirroring Menzel to some degree. He looks to have loads of talent but struggles to produce. in fact his performances this year were less than inspiring IMO.
Here's hoping Milera finally gets that he is good enough for AFL in 2018 and makes us forget about that ordinary trade deal.
Wigg a chance to land at Gold Coast according to a relative of his

Reckon Ben Jarman, Gallucci and Signorello last few weeks show the Crows they were covered in that area.
Probably as a delisted free agent. Can't see us getting anything of value for him and we should let him go for more opportunity.
Menzel being paid even close to what the rest of our SANFL players are on would still be in our squad, Menzel on

Boy was I wrong about Troy Menzel
His speed was one of his elite attributes at combine testing from memory.
Once it's clear that nobody is interested in trading for the player I don't see the point in waiting.
