It is different but trade value wise I don't think it matters. Uncontracted and no games, leaving for a better contract or better opportunity, does it really matter?“Josh will leave the Club with our best wishes as he endeavours to explore senior level opportunities with Adelaide,” Hamilton said.
So as I thought. He's the same age as Paddy Ryder and Tom Bellchambers so it's unsurprising he sought other opportunities. He was a rookie, reliant on injuries to get upgraded and get a game, and had two entrenched ruckmen aged 22 and 23 at the time who were senior-listed and ahead of him in the pecking order.
Draper's situation is a little different, if he left it wouldn't be for lack of opportunities.
