Most saying they didn't want him delisted and that he will fit in well with us, which is a very good sign. I haven't seen a single post calling him a spud.
Other clubs front office playing checkers while we playing ChessI'm not 100% on the deal but it's the midseason draft. We are 6-5. You don't use the midseason draft to recruit projected talent. We have the post season drafts for that and we have been getting in plenty of kids, you can't fault the club for that. WE also have a number of early first round picks in this years ND.
This is an opportunity for the club to identify a "quick fix" or need and address it. He can play wing and forward and even rotate through the middle. He cracks in and tackles and that is what personifies our recruitment strategy. He will also be putting more pressure on Dan and Jason who are floating between mediocre and poor and need a real kick up the ass when it comes to internal pressure on spots. MRJ is a first year player, he's developing and is very raw.
This is the sort of recruitment you do in the midseason draft.
