    He was a second rounder though. 28 or something...there are no sure bets out that deep.

    Odd choice though i thought at the time. Lets wait and see.

    Hopefully. Wellingham was a disaster for various reasons for awhile but came good. No reason why Redden can't.

    IMO we wont see redden at his best consistently till priddis leaves. We have to have a look at the end of the season about Priddis. He is holding a few guys back.

    What Adelaide have done with Scott Thompson is what we should do with Priddis.

    Priddis so far hasn't set the world on fire and the game is moving n from Him. We should be good enough to cover him. Redden certainly should return to being a 25-30 possession player and offering more defensively and you would get a few guys like Sheed and Duggan being able to spend more time on ball and developing their game.

    Exactly.

    There was an agreement at the end of last year for him to become a role player/depth and begin a focus on coaching.

    Priddis would probably consistently get like 50 touches playing in the WAFL and would be hard to ignore

    Which is why they made the agreement.

    Not just yet but imo he needs to spend more time in the guts to give us more. Also sheed in his fourth year and is not getting proper midfield time. Our midfield needs to become more versatile if it wants to be competitive in the near future.

    no. arms, back and shoulders. looks quite sickening at the moment when you compare him to priddis of the past.

    Not uncommen for older players to slim down a bit. he is still having an impact in congestions and is still laying strong tackles.
    Probably lost a few to be a bit fitter in a game thats got faster.

    Priddis will fall away and someone will pick up.

    Mitchell doesn't have much longer. Maybe one more season, Priddis no more than another two.

    Redden fills a need for type and age profile once they fall away (Selwood, Ebert, Swift/Stevens) add in the younger miss coming through can hopefully pick up the slack and we'll be in a similar position for inside midfield capability.

    They need to find another position for Priddis. Could he possibly be played on the HFF or even in the pocket, or HBF? Now don't shoot me down in flames - I'm just asking the question:rolleyes:

    Priddis is a really good set shot so if they can find a role forward for him then I'd be keen.

    Jesus, imagine the run and carry from defense the other team would get from his opponent.
