He’ll be a quality player no doubt about that. The spuds ready to write him off already have no idea how long it takes for key position players to develop. Hopefully in two years’ time we have the real makings of formidable squad and he’s a key part of it (and importantly, wants to be a part of it!).

Love the thread title!!!

Goes to show exactly what I was saying in another thread. Huge amount of people on here thought he was gone and fact remains we know nothing about the individual players or the inner workings of the club apart from a few threads of information that we use to formulate a narrative. Drama is addictive, posts about a player leaving get more attention than posts about a player staying because a player leaving is much more dramatic and fuel to throw blame.

No market to go home? We are 6 weeks into the AFL season. Give me a break.

Well there it is. The big Fish! Good signing and take the pressure off all parties.

Mutineer, interesting the rumblings around your parts seemed to off on this one then? They usually have their finger on the pulse on this kinda stuff

I think what we've seen is the BF posters are still very traumatized by regimes of yesteryear and they believe the worst even when its spread from nothing but BF thread hearsay and opinion based on past lost players.

When in reality it seems evident that there is a lot less information being leaked from this regime. Re-signings are seemingly coming from left field over and over!

I reckon McAsey is similar to Doedee, has the talent but isn't a ready-made player and I'm not saying he will need to play 2 years in the reserves but at least a decent run of games. As people have mentioned he has started to play really well in the reserves lately so his confidence is booming and no contact talks in his way now. Give him time and I am sure he'll get there and be a good player for us.

I'll admit, this has caught me off-guard. Thought there might have been something in the rumours surrounding Fischer, although that could be a reflex, based on how I've been burnt before by some of our young guys (Gunston, Lever, Gov etc)

That said, VERY happy about this. Would love to see him succeed, and I think once he develops into his body, he has a great shot at doing so
