The name of SPP's new squeeze definitely suits the image portrayed, I can even see a bit of B grade Kardashian there, but I'm an old campaigner and if she keeps him off the street and out of the media spot light then it will be a job well done.
Polec left at his zenith.
Wingard did not. The last couple of years were AFL standard, but not near his best.
I'm for a global view - if someone can get the best out of Wingard when we cannot, then by all means let his departure add to the strength of the sport.
Of course you can argue we should have employed people who did get the most from him, but it is what it is.
If either player was a required player at Port they would still be at Port in 2019.
Polec would have gotten his deal early in the year and Wingard would have been backed to turn it around or at the very least an extra year on the list would have been seen as preferable to Burton and Duursma, because Rozee would have allowed Chad to go into the midfield full time.
Since neither happened, the decision was made that we would be better off without either player moving forward. There is no rewriting of history. As a fan base we don’t have all the information at hand.
It’s like Hawthorn recruiting Tom Scully for a packet of chips. Sure, on the surface it seems like a great deal for the Hawks...but there’s a reason why GWS traded him.
Maybe wait until the new players take the field before you make calls about how badly we’ll miss both players.
