    This is a risk vs reward decision. Generally speaking I don't have an issue with the 30 year old equates to ongoing 1 year contracts. It is a good rule of thumb, but you can't live and breathe by it. There are times when you need to say....wow we have one where we need greater flexibility. Betts had his best year at 29/30!!! When you are a footy club eying for a flag.....you need a certain amount of flexibility to ensure you have the best team to give you success. Well done Crows and well done Mr Ed.

    How about you try reading the post I originally quoted for starters, then re-think what you've just posted here.

    That goal at 5:10 did not get enough love at the time, that is ridiculous ...

    If Betts helps us win a flag.

    He's going down as the best recruit we have ever had. (IMO)

    Sorry mate, I love Eddie, but you can't go past Darren Jarman as our greatest ever recruit. We would not have won 2 flags without him.

    Darren Jarman says you’re crazy, and McLeod is too busy laughing to say anything at all :)
