He just wouldn't put in the effort, a few key people had all but given up.
I find that extremely hard to believe given his football journey after initially heading back to Hall's Creek disillusioned after missing on getting drafted and a year out of football through to agreeing to play for the Shepp Bears until Shane Radbone convinced him to head to Adelaide and play Ammo's as pathway to the AFL via Sturt....all that time working as a roofer. Then to have Marty Mattner speak in glowing terms about his efforts at Sturt to get up to SANFL fitness after coming from a long way back fitness wise.

Great signing. He's extremely talented and athletic. The only thing that concerns me is longevity based on how he treats his body. Two years feels right.

An interview with Shane Radbone would be interesting for this forum’s podcast, whatever it is.

Talent was always there, just a matter of if the mental side of it all clicked for him. Looks like it did, a credit to him because he put in a huge amount of effort in the SANFL through 2019.
Agreed but for me he is also an excitement machine. He can take a spectacular mark which will draw positive attention to the club as well. Its something we dont really have at the moment.

Great signing. I liked this guy from the beginning. He just needed to find his feet and fitness. Let's hope he stays healthy.

Tom Doedee ?? Day before the first game I reckon
You reckon we've offered Doedee a bit lower due to injury history though? Hope not, I'd just take the punt at his age and keep him, same with Milera. That deal doesn't bother me. Another 5 would be a problem.

On McAdam, great news, one of my favourite handful. Could be my favourite, I don't think a lot about it.

I reckon he'll take 2 years to get him to FA, make sure he can see some continuity in his body. He's no danger of leaving IMO, so I'd give him whatever he wants.

Lucky he signed when he did, great talent but he will be 26 this month. We need more from him.
Looks like he is one of those players that doesn't respond well to injuries. He did injure his ankle first round and he doesn't look like he has the mobility

Shoulder too.

Certainly looks like he's not coping well. Either needs to be rested.... Or if he's fit then dropped.
