Yep, Stevo is the only speedster, one more and we'd be deadly with some decent key structurePlenty of other clubs have picked up super quick pressure small forwards pretty cheap. Eagles with Ryan and Rioli, GWS with Bobby Hill, Crows when they got Charlie Cameron.
The players are out there, we just aren’t recruiting them
Kappa is a closet politically correct police, you mention the word indigenous and he labels you a racistyou should have reported the post if you think it is racism! Out of curiosity who am I being racist towards? Pretty laughable accusation
I think the worry is some of our best players are 28 and over.Re Hine; I think he does an excellent job picked Pendlebury against the grain, picked both Stephenson, De Goey and Sier against the grain. Even Sam Murray if he wasnt snorting grains. His misses could be argued because of injury Freeman and Scharenberg (although he can still go up a notch and is reaonably good). Keane and Wilson could potentially follow Cox snd Mihocek as bargain pick ups. Unless we get a bargain big monster i think it is mids and forwards we need to pick in the coming up draft and back our development of Kelly, Wilson and Keane who all look to be showing something.
Of the above players you mentioned, only Pendlebury, Sidebottom, Beams and Howe are worthy of note.I think the worry is some of our best players are 28 and over.
Pendlebury Sidebottom Beams Roughead Howe Cox Wells Dunn Varcoe Mayne Greenwood Thomas Goldsack
I can't see any of Wilson, Keane or Kelly maturing in time for this window
To be fair the first 3 are a large part of our elite midfield and Howe and Roughy are simply our best tall defenders with Moore out so often (and probably coming back via the forward line now) take the 28+ out and we have virtually no keys and relying on the kids you mentioned, not ideal for a premiership windowOf the above players you mentioned, only Pendlebury, Sidebottom, Beams and Howe are worthy of note.
The others are role players who are just about done with respect to Roughead.
I wouldn’t be calling the others our best players especially when we have names such as JDG, Grundy, Treloar, Adams, Stephenson, Moore etc.
