I didn't say anything about my own opinion, was simply responding to your query about why Bevo would have said that even though it could mean losing JUH. It's an interesting issue and Beveridge would be a good person to listen to about it. He has significant experience and clearly a lot of care for the players he coaches - as people first and as footballers second - which a lot of other coaches seem to lack.So you think it would be a good thing that guys like Matt Rowell, Walsh, Bailey Smith shouldn’t be allowed to enter the draft at 18 and should be made to wait 12 months? Ridiculous
It's going to be interesting to watch how Sammy handles this.Sammy Power has done a good job so far. Didn’t get forced into overpaying for Bruce or Keath last year when he could have folded and done just that. I reckon he will have a Good plan.
I had a similar thought a few weeks back, that the club and/or Toby may be contemplating a change. The ACL may well have secured his spot at the Western Oval for at least another year or two. If that was the case, it surely means someone else is now in the gun.I wonder whether McLean was that guy?
Could throw a spanner in our plans if he was.
Putting a pragmatic hat on (don't wear it very often when discussing our players tbh!), losing almost any sub-set combination of that group is palatable if we can replace them with better options. My only exceptions would be:
By disappointing I mean he hasn't lived up to his lofty expectations. Poor way of expressing it. Actually really enjoy watching LDU and his stoppage work and he can be a player, but the Norf faithful were expecting him to be Judd like. My implication was more about my hope that JUH lives up to the expectations that have been placed on him.LDU is a quality player. The expectations were crazy and he is in a horrible team.
Some number discussion on page 42, suggestions being 23 and 51.Wonder if we'll give him the number 8 that's likely to be vacated by Trengove next year? Could possibly want 37 (Goodes) if Roarke Smith leaves, or potentially move Laith to 8 and he can take 23 (Buddy)
