To clarify. I don’t disagree with what you posted I only think it’s unfair to speculate in the context of the Collingwood board. When Knight posts here I get the sense that he’s like the rest of us nuffies whereas his thread on the draft board is entirely different.I did actually say that we all need to determine how rewarding his posts are vs the self promotion side of things.
I have no doubt how the vast majority of readers think, we love him and we will welcome and go to his stuff with great anticipation.
He's better than any of the other phantom draft posters for instance.
He's not always right but he doesn't claim to be as far as I know.
He would have let Josh D go though, I think, from a Hine sight / hind site article!!!
I hope I remembered that one right.
But I'm happy still with Hine in that if you look at every first round selection he has had since 2005 - he's hardly missed.
I don't recall the 2013 draft.
He is a bit spineless though (sic)!
But, as we all know,
List management has been the great stuff up and that no one will take ownership of it.
Same people that were running Hotel quarantine is my guess.
One point I wholeheartedly agree on is our list management. We have royally stuffed it and Knight is a prime example of how even very astute judges can get swept up in it. Only a thought, but perhaps it’s time we look externally for how we go about it and ignore footy heads? I’m thinking PHD’s in mathematics or economics who have no real sense of who is or isn’t a good footballer so they look only at factors like numbers and cultural fit.
Think former Wallaby Ben Darwin and the work he’s doing on team chemistry.
