I would have thought Rory is Guy Germaine (more of an underrated type), Jesse is more Adam Banks- you know the superstar who didnt want to play for us until he was dragooned here and then ended up loving us.
You guys and girls should be happy with this acquisition, came cheap at a 4th rounder.
I can tell you that Trav was/is very highly regarded at Essendon for his elite standards and leadership, he's a great influence on younger kids - he's the type of 'person' you want at a footy club.
His best footy is bloody good, he's the type of player that can take the game away from an opponent with a five minute burst in the middle.
He is BLISTERINGLY quick, I'd hazard a guess he'd be in the top handful of players in the league in that first ten metres or so.
The biggest knock on him is he can get a bit of the fumbles from time to time, where he seems to butcher every ball or can't pick it up cleanly. I've had my head in my hands in angst a number of times because of it.
Also, the Essendon board on BF has sponsored him for eight years - as long as we've been doing sponsorship. As a result, many of us have spent a bit of time with him over the years, and he's a genuine top shelf bloke. I remember running in to him at the Cox Plate a couple years ago, he recognised me, got my attention, remembered my name - a real nice touch.
Overall, a very nice pick up by your club. I'm genuinely sad to see him go, one of my favourites.
