Agree we need to learn from it, I’m just being careful not to be too negative as some perceive me to be.We move on but if you don't learn from history you are destined to repeat it.
We learned enough about Scott Clayton so we didn't have to repeat that disaster going forward.
Spot on. The reason why Clayton looked so ducked when he made the deal was probably not giving up pick 2, as Evans probably said that he had to, but that he had already cooked himself with that terrible Eagles trade that he thought would achieve the Weller trade on its own but he severely miscalculated.
I’m not sure we have learned the lesson completely as the Brodie, Scrimshaw and 2MP pickles the club created for themselves are all very poor deals. 3 top 10 picks and an end of first rounder for some magic beans is nightmarish stuff In terms of our perceived professionalism within the industry
