    Move ahead before an offer from the West becomes a tad inticing.

    yep, it's best for the club to do it now, it's best for mitch to wait a couple months.

    Glad we are finally learning.

    Adelaide as a city may suck in a lot of ways,
    But in my humble opinion, we as a city have,per capita,the most beautiful and lovely women on the face of the earth(well bit better than Roxby , Whyalla and Melbourne anyway).

    And Ive been around...

    They played a grab from his interview in WA so it wasn't their interpretation, Don said it and surely he wouldn't have if he wasn't confident.

    So remind me - do we hate Justin Reid at the moment or think he is going ok ... I can never keep up?

    Starting the season proper with Lever and McGovern signed would certainly show a united, committed playing group. Would be fantastic to avoid the months of speculation.

    Problem is once you've got a reputation as a bit of a shower, then everyone piles on.

    The reason we want their signatures early is to prove we're not who we really are. And who we really are is their incentive not to sign too early

    That's the real damage to a list, when you get a reputation then no one falls into line easily.

    Personally I don't know what the big deal is with playing footy with your brother, I rather play against my brother and belt him in the process

    Additionally it's not like Mitch's family are from Perth either

    I go all around Australia for work and I find myself turning my head for a second look more in Adelaide compared to Melbourne or Sydney.

    Yep, that would be an awesome start to the year. Both, especially The Snake, have got huge careers ahead of them. If only the midfield!

    After last nights game I think it's pretty clear Richmond have a better midfield than us.

    What bullshit, Reid has been involved in one outgoing trade. It was a player the coaches didn't rate, hence the insulting offer he was given. Mitch is a required player who we'll be keen to keep. Anyone with a brain in their head knew we were going to get screwed when trading out Lyons.

    Me too. I just am amazed at the quick judgements that get thrown around.
