Getting involved for longer stretches is probably not going to happen regardless what Shane does. After all we're going to be garbage next year and he's a small forward. Neither mesh well for consistency.

He does need to clean up his set shots though. He'd probably win our leading goal kicker if he did.
I think if he plays off half forward next year - he would want to improve his tank so he can get up the ground more and get back in a hurry for longer spells. It could be a big help to the team if he can do that

Given we gave up MM and pick 40 to get pick 13, Shane Mcadam and a future 5th rounder... man, we are killing that trade!..

Mitch can barely get on the field and when he does.. he does four fifths of fu** all..

At this point even if we hadve done a straight swap of MM for McAdam we’d be on top.

McAdam playing in the current Carlton side would be providing a shitload more than McNuggets is..

if I was a Blues fan I’d be pretty pissed about that trade right about now..

McAdam is just getting better and better each week.

any more word yet on his injury?...

Just needs to work on his goal kicking, strength and fitness. If he can become superfit it will allow him to keep the ball locked in our forward line and use his skill and pace more often. Really good signs from him this year.

good to see “just a knock” is now confirmed!.. i want to see this lad play every game left this season..

he’s got massive x-factor imo and is only gonna get better the more he plays.

his only issue has been his set shot goal kicking but i think thats just been nerves not allowing him to settle. he’ll get over that though.

Shame about his age. He’ll be retired by the time we are any good. (Kinda joking, kinda not). Rebuilds are fun.

Just curious, and not that it would ever happen, but would Crows supporters take Mitch McGovern back, even if he came at a reasonable price?

I would

Both him and us have made grotesquely misguided choices from 2017 onwards that have led to history/career worst situations for both parties respectively. Also Douglas chimed in with his 'experience' in Mitch's case.

Midnight Oil had it wrong. The hardest years, the darkest, the fallen, desperate and divided years... These should be forgotten years. Write them off.

I'd take Lever back before McGovern.

Really? We've got Doedee and Butts for Lever's position

We've sorely missed someone who can crash a pack and provide some speed in our forward half. We're a group of plodding snails alongside a couple of high flying smalls

So have Carlton though haha. No idea what's gone wrong with McGovern since leaving but he's been a fat slobby nothing for them. But it's idle talk anyway. Would never happen

No from me. Would have to do a massive amount of work on his fitness to even be considered. Has talent but so do heaps of guys in amateur league.

Probably would never have become an AFL player except for his name and we selected him and gave him a shot.

And look where that got us*.

*Best thing ever was trading him for maximum value

Pick of the new bunch of lads for me. His marking is a real feature and equally lethal at ground level. Also love his tackling pressure. He just needs to be more calm at kicking goals.

If he can pick up his fitness level, then I can see him surpassing McGoverns output. Which is a pretty good bargain considering the trade!

Too much bathwater has gone under the bridge now, but his next contract wont be anywhere near the size of this one. If you got him right and played him up there after Tex retires it couldve worked.

Rather Cameron back, and I reckon the club would too
