If Mitch Marsh is the worst Australian cricketer to get 30 Tests, Rohan must be the worst Bloods player to have played over 100 games.

I can already foresee many posts from puzzled Cats fans as to why he ended up at the Litter Box.
100 more than you ever got...your dislike for Rohan is bloody disgusting!

Whoa. Huge shoes to fill!

Always come over to SA for the Adelaide games too... Did the prematch etc.

Just an absolute champ & asset to the club. Do you know if he still has an official role with us after?
At last nights function it was mentioned he has taken on a managerial role with a construction company. While they said he would stay close to the club, I dare say he will not have to time for an official role.

How the **** did St Kilda not know how bad his injuries were? Crikey moses
It sounds like a bit of PR spin from Richo but if you read the article he states St Kilda were aware he came with an injury cloud but it's just turned out to be worse than they thought. Sounds like a bit of a jab at Sydney too for playing him injured. He says that Hanners will be around for a long time so they can be patient and get him right but this could be chronic and he's a fair chunk of your salary cap to be warming a seat in the stands.

Like everyone here, I greatly admired Hanners. Blind Freddie the Bull Tosser could see he played injured for the past two years.

I think our Club did him a disservice.

We ripped the Tainted off, but I remember Foschini and Paul Morwood. No sympathy.

Why would he have a jab at the Swans? How we treat our players is nobody’s business but ours. If another club then wants to take them it’s very much a case of ‘buyer beware’.

We gave them Dan plus pick 28 and received pick 39 and St Kilda's 2019 second-round pick in return. Hardly ripped them off if they valued him so highly they gave him a five year contract.

Exactly. It's not like the thrashing we gave his body wasn't there to see.

Not the picks, but the offloading of salary. The poor bloke was cooked and we were faced with carrying him on the list.
Thanks for the clarification, mate. However, on balance I still wouldn’t characterise it as us ripping the Saints off. Even if the Saints did inherit a substantial salary obligation it was their choice to do so and they would have, or certainly should have, done so with their eyes wide open regarding the risks in doing that.
