I think he only has 10-15 games in him for the season so I am happy for him to be managed/or manage himself.
Strange decision by Geelong then that they’ve picked up a guy that can’t give them a whole season at the cost of developing a new player and you would be hoping you don’t get an long term injury to a mid fielder. They must genuinely believe they are a shot at the premiership with the holy trio and tbh I just can’t see it. What’s the length of his contract - one season?

Two seasons.

I don't think shot at a premiership was much in the thoughts here (although obviously it is our overall recruiting strategy) GAJ wanted to come home we had to accomodate him. The Geelong fans would not have accepted us not getting it done. If it was a player of similar level who was not name Ablett I don't think we would have made the trade.

Well if that’s the reason and I’d be mind blown if it is and he is going to be having limited season I’m surprised it was for two seasons. One would of honoured supporters want for Gaz to come home

This is of course all based on a baseless rumour that he wont be travelling to Perth - he could be injured as he was doing a fair amount of limping on Monday so it’s nothing to do with past history
