Our leading goal kicker for the year, Mihocek. He gets games ahead of Cox in our forward line regardless.So if Grundy leaves and you put Cox in the ruck, then who's your tall key forward?
Cox might also not be there given the talks with Essendon..
If Cox is off to Essendon, that’s apparently $500,000 off our books, so there’d be no need for Grundy to go. Even then, there isn’t really a shortage of ruckmen around the competition who are looking for new homes.
At the end of the day, the last 10 premiers have either had an average ruckman, or a ruckman brought in from another side that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I think you place too high a value on ruckmen.
If you look at premiers in the last 20 years, it’s names like Stuey Dew, Nick Davis, Dusty Martin, Cyril Rioli, Ryan O’Keefe, Stevie Johnson who’ve all been that game breaking HHF that has either gotten his side into the GF, or won his side the premiership by taking a game by the scruff of the neck.
Like I said, give me Jordan De Goey every day of the week.
