Koch was working on a deal for Ryder and Monfries and they rejected it to side with the rest of the bomber players.I’m sorry REH but everytime I see someone complaining that we “didn’t plan for Ryder’s suspension” I die a bit inside.
There was literally nothing we can have done in that off-season. Nothing.
We should have drafted better years before, and had someone better than Redden or Harvey running around sure, but you keep perpetuating this myth that we could have plucked an AFL standard ruck from the ether. That’s simply false. Why on earth would the club have refused, unless we were planning on being able to take the ex GWS guy who ended up at Essendon thanks to the AFL refusing to allow us a top up player.
Stringer kicked two match winners in a minute on Jarrod Polec in the exact same way.Yep.
"We concede there can be honour in defeat, but to each of us, honourable defeat of our club and guernsey can only come after human endeavour on the playing field is completely exhausted".
That was a loss you can roll out the Creed for if I've ever seen one.
