Can someome cut at paste the recent Rayner article in the HUN here?
Everyone was very excited about the content, Im not looking to start a conspiracy theory here, but I didn't love the qoute saying 'the next couple of years are going to be fun'.. its only subtle in its context but it raised my eyebrowes a bit. Theres alot of subtle meaning and nuisances in the way players form language with the future in mind and im sure theres nothing in it, but cant say it didnt catch my attention. Was there anything else referencing long term?
"The next couple of years is going to be fun'... is very different to what was said. Sort clarification and go it.
But... yes. Im cooked for life. And.. I think there will be a new generation of Josh Kelly style split loyalty.. where players give it a crack at the club they are drafted to.. knowing they will come home at some stage so on that premise im always cautious of these non commital long term signals, you see it all the time these days (which wasnt here in this case)
Hanley going was good culturally, and the deal lead to us picking up charlie cameron via Port's future first (it also involved us downgrading picks from 19 to 22 which ended up being witherden). One of the better trades we've made in recent years.
Article on how adhd can be a major factor in being an elite athlete. Heath Shaw quoted. Think it sums up our boy Mitch and a few others.
There are many athletes who have the ability but can’t handle the restrictive lifestyle - I hate to reference him but karnesis is one and Schache struggles. Gotta be able to handle routine and having everything, even what you eat, dictated to you.
I’ve often wondered if the young blokes that are out of the game by their early 20s and struggle with the ourside world would be best off going into the armed forces. Not as strict but still a world of routines. Reckon there are heaps of servicemen with adhd there too.
